Last few pages sums up Aston Villa last 10 years and probably modern football in general.  We’re so quick to write people off - we’re lucky to have someone of Ross Barkleys ability. The call for Hourihane to replace him already is laughable

For me, it's more that some people massively over-react after a defeat.

I think people look at the reasons for the defeat.
For me the performance of Barkley and Mings were significant.
It’s a valid discussion point.

I don't think that happened after the Leeds game did it?  It all seemed remarkably circumspect to me.

I think some people did. It has been known on here after a defeat.

Well, it is a discussion board after all. It would be a bit boring if everybody agreed.

I'm pretty worried about how a newly promoted team ripped us a new one and how we get on in our next few games. Hopefully it was just a one off!

We ripped Liverpool a new one, Leeds ripped us a new one. It has been that kind of season in general in the Premier League so far. Personally I have been impressed with Barkley, particularly how he links up with Grealish.

Leeds may be a newly promoted team but you would have to be pretty blind to say that's all they are or to the group in with Albion and Fulham. Bielsa is a brilliant coach and he's doing a great job with them. They've caused everybody they've played huge problems. They scored 3 at Liverpool and they drew with Man City in a game where the score could have been anything. Unfortunately we allowed ourselves to get bullied but we could also have scored a couple of times before they did and at that point, it's a different game.

True but they weren’t the only ones who were poor. The entire midfield were equally poor particularly McGinn and IMO only Konsa came out of the game with any credit at all. Barkley is significantly better than any current replacement

Thought he was crap again today.

Second time in two games that he’s given the ball away and they’ve waltzed it past our midfield for their striker to put in the net.

At what point does he get dropped and Conor put back in the side?

Are we allowed to over-react yet?

Does seem already a player we want to leave on the pitch at all costs but he's miles away from that status. Can only hope better for next week.

Barkley having a quiet game seems to have improved Houriahne's ability.

I don’t think he looks well.
