Whilst you made a little joke about what she called him, could her opinion of him also be swayed because of his outspoken views? The public associated figures used to state to players like Mings and Rashford "you should concentrate on your own game to become a better footballer and leave politics out of it" which seemed to associate them to not be that good in other fans minds.

It's an interesting question. In the case of there being a direct relationship between her opinion of him and his more political views I would say no - absolutely not as she is a very intelligent person that has political views that would be aligned with Tyrone's. She's a lovely person that is very knowledgeable about football, and watches far more than I do. However, I think there is something to be said for how Tyrone is perceived by the wider public and in the media which I think that is certainly informed by his outspoken views and comments.

And I think that has a trickle down effect - so even people (specifically non-Villa fans) that might like Tyrone as a person have a slightly distorted view of him as a result of how he is seen by people that maybe don't appreciate his views outside of the game.

He's also had a few very well publicised "moments" on the pitch which could be seen as unsavoury.

There was the time at Bournemouth when he was accused of deliberately stamping on Ibrahimovic, and again with Nelson Oliveira for us when we played Reading.

Stuff like that goes to building a reputation when you're not watching a player every week.

That was pretty much all I'd seen of him before we signed him, and consequently I thought he was just a thug.

Didn't Ibrahimovich knock him unconscious with an elbow later that game?

Ibrahimovic is a wanker so it was fully justified from Ty.

I agree, but he's probably the last player I'd be stepping on. Nasty piece of work.

Me too, but I get feeling Mings has no truck with such arseholes and actively goes out of his way to upset them, another thing that's wonderful about him.

As long as he looks after himself. We don't want some horse-faced thug like Ibrahimovich mangling Tyrone's face and him turning out looking like Mikael Silvestre.

In my view heís the best left sided English central defender in the Premier League. Heís massively improved his consistency this season and our more structured play from the back has shown just how good a footballer he is. Heís not at Van Dijk or Ruben Dias levels yet but heís heading in that direction.

That's a small group.

It may well be and all a bit tallest dwarf etc but it shouldnt detract from the player he's becoming.

Re the Ibrahimovic incident I thought he started the messing about first before Tyrone used his head as a doormat.  Not being a follower of either of those two clubs I am more than likely wrong.

I remember the incident and thought it was a bit naughty at the time.  But also that this "kid" had done well to stand up to someone as big, and with as big a reputation as Ibrahimovic.  Didn't they both get retrospective bans, Ibrahimovic for some retaliation later in the game that was missed by the ref?

He would have been sent off for it these days, no question.

I have very little in the way of context, but I saw it on one of those nonsense 'revenge moments in football' Youtube videos (lots of which involved Ibrahimovich).

Ibrahimovich was on the ground, our Tyrone goes to jump over him but comes up conveniently short and Ibrahimovich gets the two rear studs/blades on the side of his head.

Later on in the game, both players jump up for a cross and Ibrahimovich smashes Tyrone in the jaw with his elbow.

Edit: might want to mute - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4_iMv4BLe-U&t=1s&pp=ygURbWluZ3MgaWJyYWhpbW92aWM%3D

I was thinking for those who may have inadvertently opened in the middle of a work meeting or something 🙂

Had a very pleasant journey home, two hours plus, with a Brighton fan. Then towards the end he said "I don't know why Villa fans like him so much ..."

 I knew he was talking about our inspirational leader from the Championship to Europe. I told him my position is that Tyrone is one of the greatest men to wear our colours and can pretty much do whatever he wants from here and I'll still love him. An absolute legend. That shut him up.

I heard he based himself on that silky defender Kenny Burns.
