I'd have AEG over Trez any day, doesn't make him a great player though, both bang average at best, come May if we're still a PL club get rid.

El Ghazj and Trez have done their bit for Villa.Maybe I not enough for some but hey ho!!!

Both have been utter flops. If we stay up we need to get rid of both. As the season has progressed they have got worse and worse.

AEGs "performance" was a disgrace in Saturday.  He didnt fancy it and  bottled it. We dont people like that at our club
They have not been utter flops. Yes not quite good enough but they have contributed. El Ghazi played a major part in our promotion.

Im talking about this season as a permananent signing. Both have been huge disappointments in Pl. Between the both of them they havent had 10 decent games between them. Thats a major problem

I’ve come to the conclusion he’s got plenty of talent technically but he just hasn’t got the “bottle” or mental toughness you need to play at the highest level. The guy is 6’2” and he’s as soft as shite, easily dominated physically and far too easy to intimidate in the tackle.

I think thats a fair observation mate. Thats how i see him.  I think he has more to offer than trez who is a headless chicken with  no footbalk brain

AEG has technical ability but only shows it for about 15-20 minutes in games, sometimes less, then fades away.  I've yet to see him perform for even a full half let alone a full match.  I'd say his performances  are mostly  either between a 2 and 4 out of 10 with the occasional 7 out of 10, but never higher.  Which is not good enough for PL.  Plus he does not seem to be up for a battle in any sense of the word.  His role in getting us promoted is irrelevant - did he contribute any more than, say,  Adomah?

As for Trezeguet I'd give most of his turns a 2 out of 10 (which is being generous) with the occasional 5 if he manages to scuff in a consolation goal, which he's done once or twice.  His shooting for a forward is abysmal, Tonev level ineptitude,  but scuffed instead of blasted way over.  I don't know who scouted him but he wants his eyes tested.

That's where a different learning culture means he's a type of footballer that gets appreciated for his technique but lambasted for his lack of physicality.
Some players just want to play football and learned to play the game for flair and skill
El Ghazi is one of them .

As for Trezeguet he's had a mixed season and is in a settling period . I think he has ability and I wouldn't be surprised if he impacts the cup final. If he's given a consistent run , say with Elmo , on the right think he would be a good attacking asset.

At this time both players lack the consistency.
Though I not in the camp of having these tough rugged players I rather have flair and football ability.
Dean Smith is the same and doesn't look to have these iron men snarking round the midfield.
Tactical fouls are part of the game these days not hitting people
Midfield warriors are fine but I'm always mystified by those who want some type of football hard man who over compensate for his lack of a footballing ability by giving the opposition  a good kicking .

That's not actually football and no place on field for it.
El Gazi getting whacked in the face should have gone to VAR and had Bednaerck sent off.
It was clearly serious foul play as he had to go off injured with a nasty head injury

I don't know how he can be called soft he's not a boxer so was entitled to go off for his own safety

That's really not a fair reflection.

He's played about 65 games for us and has 12 goals and 12 assists. That's not a bad record  at all but the problem he has, like a few other players, is that when he's not involved in the final 3rd he doesn't do enough around the pitch to earn his 'quiet' days. On top of that some games he just doesn't seem to be up for it, again we have a few players with that problem.

Trez is different, I think his biggest problem is that he's trying too hard and he really needs to develop a bit of 'chill' to his game.

I'd have AEG and Trez on the bench for Sunday and have Jack playing just behind Samatta up front.

AEG over Trez all day long. AEG has natural skill - he played very well against Spuds recently, for example.
He just needs to develops a tougher approach to his game and take more accountability, rather than opting out as he sometimes does.

Trez might develop into a impact sub but needs to back himself a little more as well as being much more aware of the players around him (when to pass / when to shoot decision-making has been poor).

I really hope he fancies it for the rest of the season. There's too many games where he either looks frightened of defenders who might bash him about a bit, or where he just isn't fancying it. He's got plenty of quality, but I think he's one of those players, because he'll only ever do it 1 game in 4, you'll never see him at a top 4 side in a decent league. But of course, there-in lies the Catch 22, if he was doing it week in, week out, we'd not have got him.

I've always rated AEG. what is he - 24 or 25? still learning with good potential but people want to "get rid". the same kind of comments directed at amavi ghana veretout troure...

the criticism from our lot is pathetic at times.

It kind of matches his performances. Nobody likes a player that hides. Not blaming him, I just don't think he's good enough for the PL. For the Championship we've a half decent player. Still, if fans want to defend his performances, help yourself.

I didn't think he really stood out in the Championship last season and thought he might be signed as a bit part player at best in the summer.  Only really see him as an impact sub if we are to improve going forward.
