Sir Dennis Of Mortimer

I liked what I saw last season, and he was coming into his own before getting injured towards the end of the season.

Looks fitter and stronger now he's back, and I would be happy to see him have a run in the side, maybe wide left where he played today, or even tucked in behind the striker in the No 10 role - seems to have something about him and and eye for a pass.

Give the lad some confidence.

Shame he missed today as he changed the last 20 minutes for us.

What I like most about him is he looks like a top class athlete, it looks as though he's got a great attitude to go with that so he's an exciting player who can go far for us. He'll outlast Jack G I'm sure

I agree that Green does look like an athlete but, it is about time he started producing an end result, otherwise he'll become just another pretty boy who has to be carried.

I think he has had 4 senior starts and some appearances off the bench.

A little patience would be the best bet.

No you are wrong he needs to be the completed finished article already, he's already 19 so he should be one of our star players. I'd give him until Christmas and if he's not a world beater by then we should sell him. I'm sure there's another young in the reserves to give 5 games before deciding he's crap, too.

I've been looking back at all the descent villa sides from 79 when I saw my first match , they all contain young , hungry athletic players. We have to believe in youth. Gidman , little, Shaw, cowans, Walters, Daley, Yorke, hendrie , barry and so on. We have to have pace , energy and quality in the last 3rd of the pitch.

I think he just needs to get that all important first goal. He has hit the post,the bar, had them cleared off the line and missed some sitters. I feel sure that when that first goal is out of the way he will stop freezing like he appears to at the moment.
He gives us some genuine width and has the ability to get round defenders and give them something to think about.

I'm happy for him to be given a proper chance in the team . We cant play bacuna , gabby and hutton before we play green or davis. There are young professionals who deserve a chance and who the supporters feel a connection to. Alan hutton wasn't even on the bench early doors at the start last season. Terry , whelan , Chester, taylor all day long as a core but we need energy , running and vibrancy in all the other areas.

We all want green to do well , we've all seen how poor gabby, bacuna and hutton have been. I genuinely believe if we show faith in the young lads they will repay us , they are starting off and don't have the baggage of being failures or simply never good enough to play for Aston Villa.

Obvious to a blind man on a galloping horse he's better than Gabby wide left but the obvious seems to be missed by Bruce . I'm guessing there's politics going on behind the scenes and little cliques etc Hence some strange decisions by yet another manager

I know Gabby somehow scored but if Green had played the full 90 he would've had a blinder. Even after ten years or so in the top flight yet he still can't read the game, anticipate what's going to happen and when it does happen favourably he's 5 yards away.

If bruce persists with one goal a year it will cost him his job.

Agbonlahor is useless and anyone who backs him us a clown. This is where I lose faith in bruce. Gabby , richards , bacuna and hutton , not worth a pot of piss

I watched terry at the end of the match and his body language said it all. He is top drawer and won't be ponced off by yesterday . Stick my neck out here , he will be player manager before November.
Don't laugh.

The lad does need to get a goal soon certainly. The miss yesterday is not the first in his fledgling career that he should have buried and brought us valuable points with it.

I like him from what I have seen and would also back giving him a run but the criticism typically held against young wingers nowadays is their end product and alas, he could be at risk of falling in the same bracket as many who have come before him.

50/50 for me.
Seen nothing that says he will make it or not. We will see I guess.

When I say make it I mean really really make it. ie not be a Barry Bannan, Callum Robinson. Even Albrighton.

Do the bizz for us. Get in the England team and go to a City or Chelsea type make it.

That header yesterday was abysmal. Was harder to do what he did than score. Awful technique, no belief, almost half hearted .
I would have expected any of my under 15 team to have scored that.

Heading practice after hours this week Mr Green!.
