The Benin striker could not win over all of his doubters yesterday.
A penalty earned by Rudy Gestede was dispatched by Jordn Ayew as Villa fought back after going 1-0 down to an Aaron Cresswell strike.
Of course it was not a result that looks to improve Villa's survival prospects. The club need to pick up three points rather than one and Villa fans are fully aware that yesterday was a chance they missed out on.
With that in mind Gestede has had a mixed review for his performance on Saturday.
The Benin international undoubtedly put in his best effort. The summer signing from Blackburn Rovers put in a great shift and really hassled the West Ham defenders throughout the game.
However his quality is certainly lacking.
He should have took some of his opportunities in the game to see off West Ham and pick up a crucial three points for Villa.
But as much effort as he puts in there certainly seems to be a limitation to the Villa player's talents and some Villa fans simply don't care for his best efforts.
Here is some of the reaction on Twitter to his performance...
Fair to say Gestede's all round play is looking better, Veretout coming on massively & the armband as seen Lescott improve hugely ??? #avfc— Roger. W (@RogW38) December 26, 2015
Criticise gestede for not being good enough but also bare in mind his level is ours next season. More than a goal every other game. #avfc— Kelt Smallpox (@BeefyBiffa) December 26, 2015
Gestede much improved but still not good enough overall for me, hit the target lad! Ayew is just a workhorse combined with sheer talent#avfc— DBs (@danbardell) December 26, 2015
Deserved 3 #AVFC. Great showing. Midfield was massive. Ayew coming good! Gestede dangerous. Great point.— Bob Stephenson (@bobstephenson) December 26, 2015
Gestede has to consistently be first choice striker. He is Villa's only hope of survival. #AVFC— Jack Everley (@EverleyJack) December 27, 2015
Just got in from the game. Gutted we didn't win that. We had plenty of chances, Gestede in particular should have had a couple #avfc— Adam Wheeler (@wheeler_avfc19) December 26, 2015
Better quality striker other than Gestede (even Kozak) it's 3pts. Saying that he's a nuisance for opposition, needs players around him #AVFC— Reece (@ReeceLloyd_AV) December 26, 2015
Last Gestede tweet I promise He cost us the 3 points and should never play ever again #avfc— James Lloyd (@LloydyAVFC) December 26, 2015
The sooner we can bring someone into to take Gestede's place the better #avfc— 馬特惡棍 (@dvtavfc) December 26, 2015
