Whelan since the blues game, has really made me eat my words, I’m so happy about that, love to be proved wrong, was amazing again tonight, samba looks a liabitly every time his on the ball, Davis needs a break surely gabby or RHM are close? #avfc— Matthew Sabin (@MattBrumSabin9) December 1, 2017
So last night we saw that Chester is irreplaceable simple as,WHELAN immense, JG and Henri looked fresh and eager to impress , HUTTON&TAYLOR solid, Davis trying his hardest but desp needs help up there , poor lad is shattered 70 mins in, need way more from Hourihane , #AVFC— DazPos77 (@Daz7AVFC) December 2, 2017
Whelan last few games has been great too. Fair play to him. Thought Taylor had his best game for us last night #avfc— GTHEB (@BruceRioch4) December 2, 2017
The Whelan haters seem to have piped down recently #AVFC— Matt Fothers (@MattFothers) December 2, 2017
Nice to see Whelan have a good game yesterday, from what I saw. Not been entirely convincing at start of season but performances are really coming on. #avfc— Jacq Bennett (@JacqBennett2) December 2, 2017
Been at work so just finished watching the game...some outstanding performances from Whelan Taylor Samba but for me Chester was MOTM no mistakes what a player!— Darren Avfc Judge (@dazjudge) December 2, 2017
For me, the prospect of our midfield without Whelan is now terrifying. Absolutely vital for us. #avfc— Villa Views (@ViewsVilla) December 1, 2017
Good point in the end for villa. Moving in the right direction and Whelan was brilliant again. Brucey is getting the results, proving the doubters wrong still #avfc— Ross Mullin (@Mullin1988) December 1, 2017
Glenn Whelan - immense. Are people still knocking him or? #AVFC— Reece (@Reece_AV) December 1, 2017
Villa played well against Leeds, especially in the second half, and could have actually won the match.
Whelan has established himself as an important player in Steve Bruce’s side, and the Republic of Ireland international’s performances will be important for the Villans as the season progresses.
