Harsh calling him rubbish, I've always thought he was a decent player but for whatever reason, didn't really kick start his career with us.

I don't know why but if Moyes stays beyond this season, I'd actually fancy him to bring Snodgrass back and have him performing for us. Would certainly be more than happy to give him the chance to.

We need right sided players and he’s basically a freebie, Villa probably aren’t paying half his wages. If Moyes can get a tune out of him then it’s a no brainier, even if only a squad player.

I don't think any Sky employee would be silly enough to jeopardise their career by going on a march they don't need to be on.

He deserves a 2nd chance. Everyone was woeful when he was last playing for us.

Give it 100% and show some quality and he'll be accepted in no time.

So its down to him taking his chance.

As much as it is about opinions he clearly isn't 'rubbish'. He is capped many times for his country and has been having a great season at Villa where the fans seem to like him.

The question is whether he is good enough for the premier league. I thought he looked good in his first couple of games but then fell to pieces. He clearly felt that was because he was being played out of position. Personally, I would like to see him given a chance but I'm not going to be shedding tears if he leaves.

He's a good footballer. Just isn't suited to wide roles in this league. Not quick enough. Sweet left foot however.

Scotland are s**t and he's playing well in the second tier. The hard facts, the truth.

He had seven goals and three assists for Hull in the premier league before he signed for us Jumby. He isn’t crap.

To be fair that’s not much of a recommendation given which national team it is. :wink:

A good footballer, almost destroyed under the Bilic regime.

Alot of my villa friends want to keep him after the loan.

I want him to come back just so he has the opportunity to stick two fingers up at the board.

I have a feeling that if/when Villa get promoted, he'll be slapping in a transfer request ASAP. Come to think of it, I have a feeling he'll be slapping in a transfer request even if Villa don't get promoted!

He was the best player in a rubbish Hull team. For us he played in a different position in a team that had basically checked out.

If he wants to be here and the manager, whoever that is, wants him why not. That said we could be in the championship and he can clearly do that level.

I'd say the majority don't want him back. So what he scored a few in the championshiite. So did Ricardo Vaz Te, where is he now?

I'd be happy to give him a second chance only if David moyes stays. Isn't moyes Scottish aswell ? I feel like he will be able to understand snodgrass a bit better and get the most out of him.

Vaz Te is now 31, so he's been old & past it and his legs have been gone for about 8 years.
