He's Barnsley, with a good free kick,

Great guy, not for us now,

Thought he played well tonight. We thoroughly dominated midfield, Luiz in particular was outstanding but Hourihane was very tidy on the ball. Very limited without the ball as always but we have a few like that including Barkley.

In a nice way, he is the sort of player we need to ďtransitionĒ away from even if it means we have to watch umpteen amazing free kicks fly into the top corner for his new club.  We kinda know he isnít enough of a nuisance, or have the ability to control games, to make it at the level we aspire to be.

I groaned when I saw the team sheet before the game. I'd rather have Ramsey in the side.  He went the wrong side with his free kick too. We carry Conor and Trezeguet far too often.

A bit of a Hitzlsperger for the modern generation. A good option to have mainly cos of his left foot. But yeah, probably not a starter in a top-half team.

I thought he played well tonight, we completed bossed the midfield. He definitely doesn't deserve to be singled out after that performance. So, no he shouldn't be a regular starter but he's a crucial squad player who will slowly slip down the pecking order as we improve.

Is the correct answer. I don't see the appeal at all. A Westwood that scores occasionally.

Watched him second half trying to get back to cover and he just ran out of steam. I would hate to be a young player trying to break in to this side it appears Dean wants to keep playing the same record.

I forgot he was playing until he took a corner in the 2nd half

He wasn't good enough the year we came up so the fact he still gets game time now is tragic.

I was pleased he got the chance, but he didnít do nearly enough. Two or three times things didnít come off for him, he threw his head back and stopped. Just not good enough.

He canít complain if he isnít in for Newcastle now.

Congrats Conor on your 150th appearance for Villa.
Unlucky with the free kicks.
For every negative aimed at Conor the same and more could be aimed at McGinn. John was invisible and lumbered through the whole 90+ mins.
I'd prefer to focus on the real reasons we lost. Shoddy defending (and with that shoddy defensive coaching), shoddy concentration and shoddy finishing within the penalty area.
Oh and fcuking var, how could I forget that!

I agree, McGinn was much worse than Hourihane last night, he's been playing like a plank for a good few games now.
