No criticism of him tonight at all. Tried to find some lines to pick in-between the team competition of who could pump the worst ball into the box.

Agreed, had nobody to link up with.

I suggested a midfield that would have been wrong tonight if it had started. In retrospect, Barkley ought to have played in the hole (not now Mick) and closer to Watkins, with Dougie too. Better passers and quality on the ball was needed.

That's how I saw it, we looked at least a touch more unpredictable with him on.

£40m for someone who takes corners and did nothing else tonight.

No impact bar an insane ball back. Felt we knocked it long far too often.

We should happily send him back to Chelsea now. Ramsey and Sanson are twice the players. Bin him off and give the bench slot to another kid.

Crowd would be giving him so much stick if we were allowed in currently, should've cost us a goal.

Really gave the impression of a guy busting a gut to prove his manager wrong....or maybe not

Don't want to see him in a Villa shirt again. Charlatan

He’s crap. Just struts around thinking  he is better than he is.
Was lucky he never cost us a goal.

Awful cameo performance. Mind you he made the pass of the game in the 76th minute whilst in a penalty area. Unfortunately it was in our penalty area, straight to a wolves player forcing Emi into another great save. £40m player, not a chance.

Even on his best day he isnt that great, and his best days are probably 2 or 3 games a season.

Really can't understand the decision to bring him on in a deeper midfield role tonight and he nearly cost us.  Just isn't working out at the moment and I guess it is costing us big money as well.
