Shame he has had those injuries when he was younger, stopped any progress. He's never gonna reach the heights that his brother has, which is pretty sad.

It's not over for him, but today was pretty much the same set of shortcomings I've always seen in him

I'd say "probably not good enough" ... But it was only one game. Westwood certainly didn't eclipse him.

Westwood was definitely better than Gardner today. Definitely

Can't play in a two man midfield, pretty sure at Forest and elsewhere he's played in 4-3-3.

He just dosen't have the mobility after the injuries.

Is he going to be put in the drawer with alot of our players, that when they are not in a Villa shirt solves our problems, when they are do not.

Woodhall's Theorem at work again Kuwait.  The less you see a player the better he gets.

I just don't see what he actually offers, if he wasn't a local lad he wouldn't be given the leeway he is afforded.

Another of those players we have that aren't particularly good at anything.

He didn't do a lot yesterday but I would like to see a little more of him before totally writing him off.

i'm sure people have been saying that or something similar for the last three or four years.

Same with Joe Bennett. Fans calling for him to replace the inept Cissokho are in for a shock. Bennett is certainly the worst fullback and perhaps the most out of his depth footballer I've ever seen in a Villa shirt. I certainly don't want him anywhere near our first team again.

When did you last see him play?

Why does that make a difference? He couldn't get in the Bournemouth squad or Sheff Wed team last season and the year before he played in a terrible Brighton team that just stayed up. What's to suggest to anyone he's suddenly gotten any better, no one else seems to have thought otherwise.
