David Beckham was shit at Preston. Gabby was shit at Sheffield Wed and Watford.. Loans don't always mean anything.

They don't but have you seen him play recently? He has no mobility at all, those injuries have finished him at anything close to this level. I think he could carve out a career League 1/2.

I think that it is important that he is out on loan as fitness/mobility could get better if playing regularly, playing in our stiff will not help him at all.  The straw I am clinging to is Delph, who took ages to get up to speed following his injuries, so I have not completely given up hope however anything will be a bonus rather than expectation.

He could probably do a decent job for Telford United.

A lot of it comes down to him having confidence in himself.  After any serous injury the hardest part is believing you can make it back and be better than you were before.  To go through that and then pick up a 2nd serious injury and have to go through it all again is seriously tough.  That we gave him 2 years instead of 1 suggests that the club think he can get his head right.  The lack of mobility should resolve itself (to an extent, he was never the most mobile) if he can get that confidence back.  A lot of that will come from just playing for 90 minutes and feeling himself getting fitter.

I struggle to understand why people are writing him off when they've not seen him play yet.

So why do people think he should be in our team ......has he has any good reviews when out on loan? I seem to think he usually ends up being dropped

Sorry but seems he simply is not unto standard even for a very poor Villa side

Brighton fans saw him play a lot and most of them said he was terrible.  Also he didn't really show anything in pre-season either.

Midfielder Gary Gardner has moved to Nottingham Forest on loan.

The deal is until the end of this season.

Gardner's last loan away from B6 was at Brighton earlier this term.

The 22-year-old was with the Seagulls from August 2014 to January 2015.

He has spent time on loan at Coventry City and Sheffield Wednesday previously too.

Gardner is eligible for today's home clash for Forest against his former club, the Owls.

In other news, Janoi Donacien has returned to Villa following the completion of his loan at Tranmere Rovers.

I'll be interested to see how GG plays at Forest. They're a much better side than Brighton. Not brilliant, but he may be able to express himself a little more. He's got to take this chance though.

I'm pretty sure if GG was going to break into the first team on a regular basis he would have by now.

A few years ago i thought Gardner was going to be better than his brother. Then he had a couple of serious injuries and i don't think he has ever been the same player  since.Sadly, i feel his chances of becoming a Villa regular have gone

It can't have been great going to a Hyppia inspired (!) Brighton who were shit the whole time he was there. To then have to go to Forest managed by that utter numpty Stuart Pearce makes me think that Gary has done something wrong in a previous life.

Especially given his knee injuries.
