The transformation in Bailey from the idea of him being a bit of a fair weather, inconsistent winger into an absolute warrior and leader in this team is maybe the most astonishing and impressive development in any player this season - which is saying something given how much Unai has improved the whole squad.

I wouldn't trade him for anyone now, the quality and leadership he has shown particularly in the last few months, clearly playing through the pain barrier, has been incredible. Rarely do you think a player of his type would play that kind of role in a team, but I'm amazed by how he's stepped up.
Would have had another brilliant assist last night too were it not for our miss of the season! What a player.

Says it all for me.

Agreed- great post. He’s a legend

Yeah, he's probably my favourite player in what is a very likeable Villa squad.

Yep, fantastic summary, couldn’t agree more.

Im with you on that... Couple of my Liverpool supporting mates were praising him as our best player the other night too, so he's getting noticed elsewhere too. (Not in a signing sort of way, just recognition of his brilliance.)
