He is the second most fouled player (after Jack Grealish)
and also the second most causer of yellow cards against him. Given that he also has at least two, sometimes three
defenders on him it's not surprising at his drop in form.

He needs more help from Ayew and Van Arnholt but both are too busy doing defensive duties (in the case of PVA, not very well) Such is the Hodgson doctrine. Put him in a more skilful and adventurous team and he will shine.

I'd love to see him paired with Grealish, it would frighten the life out of most defensive cloggers.

he's form and attitude this season has been indifferent at best. Gives the ball away in poor areas (1st goal v Everton)and at times struggles to beat man for pace (Coleman kept up with him last week and same v Southamption, despite no recognised right back).

Where will he go - Arsenal don't need him, Chelsea have just bought a winger and Everton have said there will not be any future deal.

As each week passes i can see other big clubs not fancying him, partly as he's wages are already very high.

I would take £50m in the summer - and agree we will never get more for him than AWB.

Watched Grealish yesterday and he looked good. However Villa attacked in numbers which caused Spurs defenders problems meaning Grealish was harder to defend against. Zaha gets the ball and is lucky if we get one man in the box to pass to as the others are all defending. Therefore he is heavily marked and we don’t score. Villa on the other hand scored twice but because they defend badly let in 3. Grealish would have the same problem as Zaha in our team :-(

One of the main issues is teams know how to set up against us. We e o attacking option. When we had Bolasie there was someone else they needed to worry about (albeit a little unpredictable). We need pace on both flanks. Andros is many things but he is no flyer and Jordan isn't a natural wide player.

This is the reason I wish we'd have gone in for Saint-Maximim during the summer. Imagine those two flying down each wing. Yes we wouldn't have any end product (not much difference to now) but boy would it have been a lot more entertaining.

Newcastle signed him for £16.5 Million.

Has blistering pace and a trick,runs with the ball and gets his team up the pitch but he is hit and miss and is not the best finisher.
Critics in France believe that a lack of end product has stopped his progression.
Might give Ward a really tough time on Saturday.

This is a huge part of the problem. I'm hoping things will improve with Andros back but having him as our only other wide option is f***ing criminal.

Yes, this. I also agree with the poster about Saint-Maxim who it could be argued has not been helped by having Joe-no-goal-inton as his target in the box. Those complaining about PvA, it is is worth noting that he is one of our only really quick players in the team and for all of his flaws he offers more goal threat than most of our midfield.

Imagine if we'd signed a quick right-back and a backup for Andros; we might be on the edges of Europe. C'est la vie.
