Don't worry, he's always got his Bella Emberg/Blunder Woman tribute act to fall back on.

Has he stopped blaming Bilic for not being able to pass, crosss or shoot yet? :D

UP there and probably worse than Valencia as a signing, absolute bang average Championship player and his not even doing it there currently.

Just seen the highlights of the Villa vs Preston game. His corner delivery was just fantastic and he finished well for their 2nd goal. Seems a shame that he couldn't deliver that same quality for us but he's still our player (for the moment). If he keeps playing well we could get some of our monies back.

Here's hoping. A case of another one being more at home in a different League.

Not seen Arnie play any better for us yet. Pretty damning.

He’s been a championship player his whole career apart from 3 months for Hull a couple of seasons ago. He’s ****.

Although we might need him next year...

It’s too much of a coincidence that players are leaving us and improving Zaza banging them in as well, and players coming to us get worse.Something about Bilic training /fitness appears well below par.

Apart from those 3 months at his very peak with the team built round him, can you point to a point in his career where he’s done it at Premier League level?

I can’t find anything, unless you choose to believe he’s actually a good player

Apart from the best years of his career being during Norwich’s time in the PL?

Who went down? Honestly don’t see how anyone can say hand on heart he is at the standard to play at this level. Can’t knock his attitude though, which I don’t have a problem with. But playing well for Villa in the Championship doesn’t change anything.

Hull also went down! However not sure what this, or his time at Villa has got to do with your claim that Snodgrass has only spent 3 months of his career playing in the PL?

However what I am sure of is that your claim is 100% Fake News.

I was disappointed we didn't give him more time. How many players have a decent left foot?? As for being a Championship players, so are most of Brighton/Bournemouth/Burnley players but they seem to be doing ok.

Replaced him with right footed Arnie who cost the earth and struggles to get in the first team. Cuts in side at every opportunity and has an attitude. Oh great..

Snodgrass didn't want to play on the left, so Arnautovic has nothing to do with it.
Snodgrass wanted to play on the right, and cut in on his left foot.
Anything in preseason he did with his left foot was appalling.

So if we didn't sign Arnie who would play on the left?

I couldn't give a monkey's where Snod wanted to play. He plays where he's told to.

I think we have 3 left footers: Cress, Arthur and Ogbonna. It's a constant lack in many sides.
