I'm not convinced by Nyland, but this is as he's kicked it, how is he meant to aim wide of the Wigan player?



Exactly. I really don't understand this argument

He basically stretched to even connect with the ball so quite how he was meant to do something different with it I've no idea

He should have at least tried to overhead kick it.

Nathan Baker would have headed that clear.

Wasn't Nigel Spink's last Villa appearance as an outfield player?

Yes. He came on a sub against QPR in December 1995 and played up front

This game was Lee Hendrie's debut. He also came on a sub and was sent off.

We lost.

He did, indeed, but that does not count as a shot in target!

Amazing things, statistics. Apparently inflation is low as us unemployment.

Having now seen the goal conceded what on earth was happening.  Maybe trying super hard to be dominating as was clearly no need to go out for that ball which led to the error and Ipswich scoring .

So I hope he will improve and would think settling in and having a settled back four would help but has been underwhelming so far but must have been scouted /recommended to be a capable championship GK other wise the move was seriously floored

He should have stayed on his line for the goal that Ipswich scored may never have been

Steve Bruce (caveman manager with limited tactics) loves to have the GK kick the ball to the flanks. It leaves a much smaller margin for error so itís hardly a shock that on occasion it goes out of play.

The type of kick Bruce is after is one that is probably about ten yards in from the touchline, as that gives the winger a chance to attack it.  Seeing as that is one of his main tactics, I would have thought finding a keeper capable of doing it would have been a primary scouting requirement.

Could be worse, we could have Hamer who had an absolute shocker today.

I think this post, after the page or so back to talking about Wigan, sums the problem up.  Too slow coming off your line and you're indecisive, too eager and you're reckless. I think people forget that the goalkeeper has to learn to play with his team just as much as anyone else and he's not really had any time to do that.

but the arguments about  this fella run deeper than that - i.e. his basic competency.

Why didn't you warn us of his 'basic competency' before he joined or are you basing his whole career on two games in a Villa shirt?

I have already put my view that the jury is out on both Nyland and Moreira.  It is not unreasonable to comment that after debut games for both of them there are grounds for concern.
