Brilliant performance other than the finishing tonight.

Different level than every other player on the pitch. Pity he didn't get the goal he richly deserved.

I've said it a few times but what separates him from players that are 'just' good is how easy he makes the game look. Many things can be taught to players but that can't and only a few have it.

I've said it many times, the way time slows down when he gets the ball is just like Zidane. I can't think of a better compliment and i don't think it is going over the top.

Looking at that list, Adama looks like he must be developing some end product, especially as some games have been from wing back.

We shouldn’t worry about scabby English teams buying him.

He’d be great in Italy or Spain.

 Truly tremendous player.
One of the best Villa players I have ever seen.

Probably the most naturally skilful player I've ever seen in a Villa shirt. I really think he could play for anyone because of that but of course I hope he doesn't. The difference he makes to the team is absolutely huge. Simultaneously heartwarming as a homegrown legend and worrying if he gets a bad injury.

Where do you start with him? Went to school a mile from where I was brought up. It’s too good to be true. Brilliant tonight, with better finishing (and he will work on that) you’re talking world class.

Was superb tonight.

At times his dribbling is Messi-esque. His finishing is slightly better than Tonev, but will come good.

He's already well on the way to legend status and he's only (just) 24 !
