His distribution is very good.

He is brilliant. I think we should try get him in the summer for 12 months.



I've not seen a keeper so cool with a ball at his feet. Doesn't matter if it's in his own six yard box with an opposing striker incoming.

In fact, he could easily be a replacement for DD in midfield.

He hasn’t put a foot wrong since getting here. Aside from his ability which he clearly still has in abundance his attitude has been superb. Proper player and leader. Just superb yesterday and you can see how personally he takes it all when he’s beaten.

We joked yesterday that at Wembley we should play Nyland in goal and Reina at the base of midfield.

Felt sorry for him yesterday, he kept us in it, saved a penalty and his teammates still fucked it up.

Agree about the comments regarding Reina.

I was just a little surprised he choose to kick the ball so quickly which led to the goal. I thought he might have took a yellow to run the clock down a little. Only a small criticism as he has been excellent.

Good point.  So many ifs buts and maybes.

It still hurts.

He is certainly more of a Friedel than a Given when it comes to signing an older keeper.

He’s been excellent for us so far, and would be a good move to sign him permanently on a 2 year deal if the price is right in the summer.

He's clearly superb, having him and Heaton for the next couple of seasons would be brilliant although i'm not sure how you'd keep them both happy.

Fantastic shot stopper. He’s kept himself in good shape and brings huge experience to the side. He was a bit let down by the defence after saving the Penalty. Will be worth a couple of points at least on the run-in.

Villa win the League Cup gain entry into the Europa League = plenty of games for Reina and Heaton. Sorted.

I am not or wasn't at all sure about Reina starting ahead of Nyland. My view was that he is ok to sit on bench after Heaton's injury but we should stick with the youngster. However I was very impressed with his distribution and defence management at corners and free kicks. His distribution was the bedrock of most of our effective attacks.

Did he sign an 18month deal?
