Aston Villa scraped into the second round of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday evening with a 1-0 win away at League Two side Yeovil Town, and after the game fans on Twitter were questioning whether Andre Green had done enough to justify a continued run in the side.
A pacy left-winger, Green came through the academy system at Villa, making his debut for the club in the Premier League as he came off the bench in a 2-0 loss to Spurs in March 2016.
He spent much of last season out with a hamstring injury and was limited to just five Championship appearances, scoring one goal, as Villa made the playoff final.
The 20-year-old has represented England at every youth level up until the U20s so is clearly highly regarded, but Villa fans on Twitter were urging him to buck his ideas up and fulfil his potential after a lacklustre performance against Yeovil.
Check out some of the best tweets about Green below.
Desperately need competition in the front three positions. For me, Adomah, Kodjia and Green aren't consistent enough to play 40 games and get us up.
Actually think midfield and defence is good enough, unlike many. #avfc

Adomah and Green have had very slow starts to the season. I think they’ll both pick up as season goes on but we definitely need a quality winger in before the loan deadline finishes, preferably left footed.

View on last night. Adomah, De Laet, Elphick, Green & Hourihane all failed to impress IMHO. I want Green to succeed so much but he doesn’t seem to have that inner drive/belief to take a player on. I’m not sure why as he has the talent for sure. All need to up their game #AVFC

I have worries about Albert and green.
Think we need to loan a winger. Snoddy will do…. #avfc

Some fans seem to hate any negative comments on the young guns, for me Bruce was bang on. I thought the lad Hayes struggled, Green to sporadic, Hepburn-Murphy just lacked support so hard to say to much on him. #avfc

Got away with one there, Elphick, Taylor, Whelan, Green, Adomah all poor in my opinion & we are crying out for a proper striker #AVFC
