    With Terry's leaving the club he should get more games. They also played first game with 3 CBs.

    He also got squad number 4, so maybe this time he will start lot of games.

    Good to see him play at CB. Ideal scenario would be Villa getting promoted and him staying on for another season.

    Villa talk report good and bad things about him on Sat. The worry is that big JT is going back to Villa.

    Looked decent enough. Though looks as though he overplayed at the 42 second mark.

    My best mate's a die-hard Villain and he says Axel's been poor, but he does admit he's being played as a FB most of the time if not full time. Which he can tell is not his favoured position; its disappointing this. Last season we send him to Brucey only to find Brucey has a mean, cemented CB pairing meaning Axel gets no game time. He goes back there again in the wake of FKW leaving only to find he's being shunted at RB. Hopeflly he actually gets a run at CB.

    He's a lone centre-back after Chester got a straight red right now. This probably means 3 games at CB for Tuanzebe, finally will get the chance to nail it down!

    Looking forward to his three games CB partnering Micah Richards. :lol:
    EDIT: Chester got sent off as the last man, he will only be out for one game then?

    Just saw his crossing in another game, better than all our full-backs bar maybe Dalot. However, it'd be incredible to see him cement that CB spot with a new manager coming in. I'd be really happy with Alderweireld, Tuanzebe, Bailly, Lindelöf, Smalling as centre-backs next season. If Tuanzebe starts living up to the potential Villa fans talk about, he could form a great partnership with Alderweireld.

    Only highlights from the game I could find was his added time assist.

    Looks like he was very good against Norwich. Terry is helping him plenty

    Hope he learns a lot and comes back to really play a part in the squad next season. Hopefully, we get a coach who is good with young players as there is some good quality young players coming through the academy.

    Good to hear. I know Villa supporters weren't a fan of him when he was playing at rightback, but now that he's finally getting a chance in the middle he's starting to win them over.

    Ideally he'd cement his place in the team, hopefully Villa can get promoted and he stays there for another season.

    Sure, that would be a good choice as well, but considering our poor defense, it could be better to just keep him and give him a chance.

    Haven't had the CB first-team from the academy in a long time, I can feel he'll make it for us.

    He's improved in last few weeks.

    I think if I was to evaluate his game I'd say his physical attributes such as his strength and pace get him out of awkward situations rather than good positioning.

    You can say that about a lot of young CBs though....think of Micah Richards when he was coming through at City. Infact he was still trying to do the same 10 years later, shame his knees were shot.:lol:

    Thanks.
    We knew he's that good on the ball carrying it and good passing from the back, fast and alert, composed when defending and can handle physical tussels/pressures.

    His heading is still off, not convincing yet, as does his positioning but he have good recovery runs for that latter issue so not a big problem for now.

    EDIT: :drool:Damn it, he's so fun to watch, really want him to make it at United.

    Great opportunity to watch him in action in half an hour! Hoping he lines up as LCB as it says on the team sheet.

    Mourinho won't play him, he'd rather play one of his overpriced league 1 standard defenders instead.

    Hopefully, but then will that manager blow a load on defenders and block Axel's route. He's defo no worse than the shower we have currently.

    Much better of our two CBs currently, Chester is usually mr consistant but he's been really poor this season, massively out of form.

    I'm not sure Mourinho will be here long enough to block Axel's chance to making it with the first team, but it is a legitimate concern.

    Man of the match even though they lost 2-1 and a striker scored the 2 goals. The mind boggles.

    Except for two misplaced passes he was doing really well. Chester at fault for the goal.

    Watched the match last night. First time I have caught Aston Villa this season. Was massively impressed. The guy is a legit powerhouse. Big, strong and quick. The loan move is certainly helping in his development (better than the situation Perreira has right now) If Mourinho doesnt mess this kid around too much we are looking at a future Manchester United CB for the next decade.

    Mourinho is a big fan of Tuanzebe (or at least pretended to be when interviewed in his first season at the club). It makes the decision to sign young "development" centre backs rather than an experienced defensive leader all the more baffling.

    I haven't seen much of him recently but his ability in the air was his biggest weakness when I've watched him previously. If he can improve that he could be a genuine option for the first team squad.

    Fully agree. I was impressed last night. His aerial attacks were much improved, he was challenging at the right time, not letting the striker get in front of him, knowing when to drop off and not go up for the ball. He can only better from getting a season worth of coaching under John Terry in my opinion.

    Watched him tonight ,1 or 2 defensive mistakes which lead to nothing really , made a good tackle towards the end to stop a clear goal scoring chance as well as another blocked shot he’s well able to bring the ball out of defence and find someone in front of him which is great to see. Hopefully Smith can keep selecting him

    Continues to grow now he’s playing a centre back, another solid display. Villa looking like the side that got to the final of the playoffs again. Grealish has finally decided to turn up again.
