I can't hate him for being plucked from the lower leagues and given a shot. Hell, if Bruce knocked on my door right now and said "You're too old, you're too overweight, you're a bit shit, actually you're a LOT shit and you'll embarrass yourself so badly but we'd like to give you £40,000 to cover the pain of being the most hated Villa player ever", it'd take me exactly 2 seconds to get over it and put pen to paper.

He didn't start his career too badly with us so maybe what he can do well is make a bit of space for himself to get the ball and give it someone more creative than himself. But Hutton likes to hoof it anywhere, we don't have a proper box-to-box midfielder who Westwood can feed (Gardner is a pretender and nowhere near the quality that the Snake was), the team don't seem to have a robotic step-by-step playbook to bring the ball out of defence and into the final 3rd that West Germany use to be so good at in the 80's and so he ends up looking like a little boy lost.

And the more his confidence dies, the worse he gets.

I can't hate him. He gives his all. Just like Hutton. Hes never said a bad word about the club and I'll bet he's the nicest bloke you could wish to meet. He's just not a footballer for this level. And I just don't want to see him in a Villa top again.

To be honest I don't care if he is Mother Theresa, Gandhi and Florence Nightingale rolled into one I just wish he would do us a favor and fake an injury for the rest of the season.

I just hate him in a Villa shirt!! Please McGrath no more Ashley Fucking Westwood!!

You will go to hell for uttering such words about a newly canonized soon to be saint?

Well what if it came out that AFW pulls legs off puppies and stubs out cigars on kittens? Would you feel AFW was easier to hate?

Dreadful woman - consorted with third world dictators and received millions from them, kept the poor in her "missions" under terrible unsanitary conditions, no painkillers etc. whilst she and the RCC held millions of pounds from donations - lots of accusations of embezzlement as well - missing millions.

In fact, sounds like a perfect owner for the knuckle-draggers down at St Andrex.....

Anyway back on topic - I think it's fair to say that if anyone hates anything, it's the recurrent blind spot of successive managers in constantly picking AFW, rather than the person (although apparently he does have a back garden filled with puppies' legs....)

I am following your logic here?? So maybe AFW's Mr nice Guy act is a front for the puppy mutilating fiend he really is!!! Clever!!! Maybe that is what he does? He steals the new managers pets and threatens them with all kinds of dastardly torture unless they play him each week? Would explain a lot?

BIG UPDATE!!

Ayew= 3 goals and 5 assists
Adomah= 1 goals and 5 assists
Grealish= 3 goals and 1 assists
Jedinak= 0 goals and 2 assists
Tshibola= 1 goal and 0 assists
Westwood= 0 goals and 0 assists
Gardner= 1 goals and 0 assists
Bacuna= 1 goals and 1 assist

Total= 10 goals and 14 assists

Well today was much better. Bacuna nicked a goal and Adomah and Ayew got assists. Ayew and Adomah are doing rather well in the assists column but the bottom line is the goals from midfield still remain a big problem and so do the assists from the middle of the park. We only have THREE assists from those playing central and to me that is just pathetic and the source of our struggles. six of our eight wins have been by a single goal and if we're able to improve this area of our game there can be no doubt that we will begin to put teams away much more easier than we are now.

Looking at that, makes me even more surprised at the amount of stick that Ayew gets, have even seen him compared to N'Zogbia elsewhere.

I know he can be frustrating but he must be only second to Kodjia, when combining assists and goals scored. We're going to miss our African players.

If Ayew just got a few more goals then he'd be the best player in the league. This is the area where he's really failing tbh.

Don't you think that is why Ayew gets so much stick because you KNOW there is a class player in there, you just want him to show it more. To be able to bring a player like that off the bench is brilliant to be honest as you know he could do exactly what he did with a brilliant off the ball run into space and superb cross.

Adomah hasn't been named in Ghana's squad for the AFCONs, he's not even in the stand by list.

That doesn't surprise me to be honest, think he is better than he has showed so far, brilliant cross yesterday but very little else!

From what I've seen of him he's been pretty good, better than I expected at least. And as the above shows taking assists and goals into consideration he's been responsible for six of our goals. Only Ayew and Kodjia have made a bigger contribution.

It's a shame for him that he hasn't been called up, but from a Villa perspective I think it's a big plus.
