We are beginning to see a player now, early days but well done Gardner.

Be nice if he could unleash a couple of his pile drivers into the top corner next week.

Wouldn't it!!

Tony Morley on the radio commentary yesterday said how a week ago he bumped into GG and he was a bit down in the dumps as he'd not played much and was just hoping that SB would give him a chance.

He can't have any complaints about not playing more after his early performances

Ironically, the forest game was by far his best but he never came back in

From the way Morley was talking GG was expecting to be on the side lines (just disappointed and hoping for a chance under the new manager) the jist was a week in football can be a long time and make a marked difference. You're right but to be fair to GG there was a fair list of players that had bad performances under RDM. It would probably be easier to list the better individual performances by players in games under RDM rather than the poor ones lol

I'm happy for him that he is healthy and getting some consecutive games. He's proven to be more than adequate at Championship level but always for someone else. It will be good all round to see him contribute to us getting promoted. He loves the club so keep it going Garry.

He's had to wait a fair while for his first Villa goal (unlucky at Derby when he hit the post).
His next goal is now due 30th August 2021. However, another one this Saturday will do nicely.

A little harsh on numbers 1, 2 and 5 who can probably blame the Kaiser/Hitler for their respective lack of goals in some of their years.

Yep, you're right. I was not going to add them but changed my mind.
Also, Edwards scored loads during the war but no one counts them!

Shouldn't Baker be on that list...he made his debut before Gardner.

Unless we're counting own goals which he's scored a couple!

I think it's only once they get a goal that they're on the list.

Played very well at Reading and against Fulham. You can't write him off just like that, I thought he did ok yesterday and he probably missed Bacuna.

He scored that banging header  8) and covered a lot of ground. No he didn't do much else of note is the truth but I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do in remaining 2\3's of this season. One to watch closely.

Me too. It was a bit tiresome watching him just knock the ball over the top without looking time and time again
