He has got to be player of the season with the performances he has put in .
Really stepped up

McNeil for me. But yes Westwood has also been superb. Defour who? :)

Wonder where we'd be at if a fit Defour was in the middle with Westwood..... Christ that'd be good.

Could still happen ( though can’t see it) probs be good enough to allow both McNeil and an attacking right sided player to work the flanks . I’d love to see Lennon bombing down the wing

If Defour was fit then I think we would see either Cork play or Westy being restricted to a more defensive role and so he wouldn't be as effective as he has been.
Same with why Hendrick works on the right as he can slot in to make an almost central three thus allowing Dwight (and CT) more room and freedom to do what he / they like down the left.

You'll need a Tardis for that.

Reminds me of Billy Ingram. I don’t mean by his hairstyle by the way

If he had a foreign name he’d be worth £100 million

You’re probably correct , though he’s still got superb pace , while I know SD is hardly a gung ho type I was genuinely shocked to see Lennon reduced to tracking back albeit quickly and being “ tucked” in as opposed to wide, still there’s worse bench options than him and Brady next season

Been supberb for a while now.

My Villa supporting colleague laughed when we signed him. He’s the modern day Scot Arfield

Nice comments on here and very true but forgive me if I'm wrong, wasn't he getting some pretty bad stick recently from some on here?

A quiet game against Cardiff and it'll be full of 'we need better'. All part of being a fan, opinions have a use-by date of whenever the next match is.

True - I still am not convinced by Barnes and have said so often but double figures in goals in the PL with games still to play suggest I'm probably wrong. :?

not probably wrong regarding Barnes, lose the "probably" and you're spot on :)

Have always been a Westwood fan and was excited when we signed him, my opinion was always he was not getting enough time in the team, never been a Defour fan, yes can be great for a limited time in a match but never what BFC needed imo Good to see Westwood getting the praise he deserves but as pointed out it only lasts until the next match, no one needs to go missing in the next five games let alone half the team as we have seen a few times this season.
