HE reminds me of Hitz more than anyone else

Great left peg. Not really good enough at the most competitive levels.  But could be vital this season

A kind of cross between Hitz and Sidwell for me. Hitz was a bit classier, but not as mobile or dangerous inside the box.

Hitz couldnít tackle to save his life either. Hourihane can at least get stuck in occasionally.

Westwood was like a 'Shittest Hits' of all of them, Hitz's tackling, Hourihane's touch and Sidwell's vision.

Hitz not really good enough at the most competitive levels, that Bundesliga medal and 52 German caps showed what a limited player he was.

Some German teams must be blessed with 3 very pacey, dynamic midfielders.

He was a full back in the Stutgart side.

Part of the reason heís not running games is whenever we turnover possession his instruction is simply to make a run into the opposition box to take a player away from Hogan, and until they were injured, Jack and Albert. An instruction that he selflessly follows unless it is him who has won possession. Unless youíre watching him closely or it leads to a goal like Albert!s in the b-lose game itís a contribution that goes unnoticed and uncredited. Proper team player.

Sometimes he appears to go  missing, but may be that's explained in Percy's post, however you can not but admire his goals. A long time since we ave had a midfielder contributing as many as he has bagged.

I donít think heís a particularly good player and I often find myself muttering under my breath when heís on the ball but his goals have been vital to the Villa this season, so fair play to him.

He's sort of like a midfield version of Darren Bent: if he doesn't score then you'd struggle to point to anything he does in a match. But having the knack of chipping in with important goals is such a rare skill, and when Jack is back, his deficiencies will be diluted somewhat.

He drives me mental, but without his goals we'd be struggling to keep pace with the leaders, so fair play Conor.
