I'm not sure he did moan really. I think one comment has been taken and used to spin news articles out of it to make it look bigger than it was.

With him, Luiz and Torres, we have a real ability to pass the ball forward quickly and accurately.

I think he's going to develop into a fab player for us, I'm just not sure how we're going to keep all the midfielders happy, but that's Emery's job!

On Saturday I thought Tielemans had a poor first ten or so minutes when he came on but after his ability began to show particularly his passing

Quality pass into Watkins, the one to set Diaby free was easy enough. Confidence hopefully gets a lift now. Would start him for Luiz midweek and see how he does with one of Kamara/Donk next to him.

Even with the easier second pass he doesn't rush, takes an extra touch to allow a better angle and give Diaby more time to get further forward, then the weight is spot on too.

I like the fact that SUE does not keep McGinn on just because he is Captain. He has been well below par last 2 games so the change turned the game.

Great to have a bench to be able to change a game like this

He won’t and give McGinn a break, he has been exceptional since Emery came in and 2 sub par games is hardly the end of the world.

What I really enjoyed was the bloke near me calling him "Big Mouth" constantly as soon as he came on. We were only saved from this monotonous joke by the arrival of Bailey, who is his favourite to moan about.

I expect Tielemans to start on Thursday. He grew into it on Saturday and made some lovely passes

For several years in the late 90's, I was sat next to one guy who was sound, and his mate who literally ripped it out of any player on the pitch in a villa shirt. Occasionally he wasn't there as he would get a ticket in the Lower Trinity so he could criticise the bench up close. One of his more infamous comments was "why bring that waster on?" about an 18yo Darius Vassell in the home game against Strømsgodset in the 80th minute.

That reminds me of a bloke somewhere behind me up to a few years ago. It didn't matter who we were playing, from someone like Barnet to Barcelona (I know we didn't play either in the timeframe but you get the idea) his catchphrase was 'Come on Villa. this lot are f@#king shiiitte!'. Vaguely funny the first time but not the 401st.

Slow and sloppy and a little slack on the ball. Then Duran scored and to be fair he wasn't the only player who woke up then. But if we get the Tielemens from 1-1 to 3-1 consistently, then he's definitely going to be a key player. I'm hoping he'll get some confidence going into the next game and I'd expect him to start. Kamara has been very inconsistent this season (but brilliant when he's on it). So the chances will come and if Kamara needs to focus and work harder to win his place back, all the better.
Dougie is nailed on right now and he's been superb.

Nice to have options though.

After Youri's slow start someone near me shouted out, "Get back to Leicester!!"

That lasted well...

In fairness, the general chat around me when he came on was that he needs to lift his game a bit, which he subsequently did.

It was nice to see him actually do something positive.

Yes, he's been on the bench blah blah blah, but he's apparently brilliant, and plays for Belgium who are apparently brilliant.

So yes, nice to see him produce on Saturday.

More please, Youri, or next time I'm home I'll drop you off at the Clock Tower. And nobody wants to be dropped off there.
