Dunno...he'd be an upgrade on Jedinak and better off the ball than Hologram.

Saying he'd be better than Jedinak is the very epitomy of damning someone with faint praise. For all his faults, Hot Lips still contributes a reasonable number of assists and goals. He's not the long-term answer, but he's certainly far closer to it than Gardner, who contributes fuck all.

All I'm saying is that Gardner has been getting decent reviews in a team far shorter on quality than us but which works a lot harder, where players know their jobs and that seems to be one of the big problems with us at the moment.

Lots of players get decent reviews elsewhere. Jedinak, Whelan and Hot Lips were all loved by their former clubs. In terms of performances for Villa, though, Gardner has had far fewer reasonable ones. He also lacks in the area in which we suffer most... pace. I'd rather he wasn't helping out those twats, but I'm still glad he doesn't play for us. And his brother's a twat. And his other brother is a chav.

you can't go round saying he's a chav nowadays surely? A cnunt possibly but not a chav.

He plays for Small Heath, the majority of their players and fans are chavs.

I'd imagine that lot see being called a chav as a badge of honour.

So far this season we've had Pedersen on video 'im gonna fuck Grealish up', Gary Monk holding up a 'sotv' banner, and the other day on twitter I saw their fans boasting about how they hadn't been allowed the lower tier at QPR because of what they'd done their previously.

The same old argument.  Hourihane takes every free kick, every corner.  I'm surprised he doesn't take all the goal kicks and thrown ins too.  He scores the odd goal, granted, but he only creates assists because he takes all the dead ball situations.  Give all the dead ball situations to Taylor and no doubts he'd be talked up as the assist king. Not having a pop at you but Hourihane is a shadow and talked up far too much in my view.

Lots of players take all the set pieces for their clubs, not many are as good at it as him though which is why he's joint 3rd for assists in the league. He's a limited player but he gets so many assists because he's very good at that part of his job.

Do all the others offer so little else?
