I've never seen a player have so many attempts at a first touch.

I have genuinly never taken to him, miles off what we need, cant pass, press or tackle to a standard that we need. If the Everton interest is genuine and we can get anywhere near our money book then I'd be all over that if I was Purslow.

You rate him higher than I do.

Problem is who would have played instead today that would have been an improvement? Sanson, Ramsey, Luiz and McGinn are the other options and they are all worse DM players than Nakamba. Granted they are all better players too, but not for that role.

You're quite right Ashton, we don't have anyone else and that is part of the same problem.  We have players coming back but they are no more defensive than Nakamba.  We need to buy a couple.  Even if we have to use AEG and others in swap deals or to raise money.  What gets me is that we can all see it, but the Villa staff can't.  Opposition managers see it and use it against us.

Wank again from him, I don't see what anyone see's in him. So limited as a footballer.

He's neat and tidy at times, but lacks the consistency and physicality for this league.

He wins the ball sometimes, but he can't keep, carry or distribute it.
 His passing is suicidal. Squad option at best.

If you’re genuinely aiming for European places then Nakamba cannot be anywhere near the starting line up, horribly limited player.

He'll always have Spurs away May 2021 as a high-point. Harry's last home game at Tottenham too, they can both meet for a pint and a reminisce in 2040.

The biggest problem yesterday was that he seemed to keep roaming too far forward and not sitting, leaving us exposed. The full backs we’re doing it too, especially Cash.

Exactly this. He's nearly a really good player, but he has all too human lapses of concentration/technique. We need a superhuman, in that position in particular.
