Villa fans react
Here is what these fans had to say in reply, with one admitting he was ‘shocked’ that loanee Ross Barkley – who is ineligible to face his permanent employers – was still around, while others were surprised at Nakamba’s goal, given that he hasn’t scored in 49 appearances for the club. Another joked that goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez should be dropped for letting the Zimbabwean score past him.
“Have I just seen Marvelous Nakamba score a goal or am I seeing things”
“Nakamba score? Emi Martinez out”
“Shocked to see Ross Barkley, when they say season long loan they mean it.”
“Barkley training even though he can’t play”
“Nakamba scoring an actual physical goal”
“I know for a fact El Ghazi nets everythinggggg in training”
