The Cardiff City 3 Aston Villa 0 game was so epic that MOMS just had to do some Aston Villa player ratings for the first time ever.
The energetic, incisive attacking play, hustle and bustle and resolute defending, were all the ingredients that Villans were dying to see this season. There could have been a lot more goals too.
In short, it was Championship football at its very best.
Hopefully, Villa will learn from it.
Aston Villa Player Ratings
Could become as good as Jed Steer if nurtured properly.
Credit where it’s due. He’s earning a great wage from doing whatever he’s doing!
I used to think Chester was Villa’s most reliable player, but after this game, I’m #ChesterOut
Still better than Jordan Amavi
Injury foiled him scoring a brace today and contributing a couple of assists. Shame.
Too old. Looked like a crab.
Not really a Villa player, so we’ll let him off. Can we make him captain?
Cut. The. Man bun. Off. Son.
He would be Villa’s best player, if someone would care to pass to him. Don’t think it’s going to happen in any game this season though.
He’s already scored his token goal for the season, so no idea why Bruce picked him against Cardiff.
Adomah 7 (30)
Big bonus points for coming on as a sub and then being subbed off himself. Class.
O’Hare 9 (58)
He’s from the Villa academy, so we’ll hype him. Excellent.
Hourihane 6 (77)
First league appearance of the season. Plus five points for getting on the pitch.
Great clean sheet. MOTM for the second game running.
Looked more likely to score than Agbonlahor
Contributed much more than Hutton at right-back
Got into the best positions of his Villa career
Still looking for some tactics. Made Neil Warnock look like a god.
A Venglos View is a satirical (and sometimes surreal) look at the Villa…there’s sometimes a grain of truth. 😉
For further Villa madness, there’s always the…
