Aston Villa loanee James Bree has struggled at Luton Town this season

Fringe Aston Villa man James Bree is currently on his second loan spell of his career.

After spending the second half of last term with Ipswich Town, he is now plying his trade at Luton Town in the Championship.

Having been relegated with the Tractor Boys last time around, it seems as though he could suffer a similar fate, as Luton currently sit rock bottom of the Championship table.

While Bree would never be able to single-handedly pull them from the foot of the table, it seems as though he has severely underwhelmed the club’s supporters.

He has made 26 starts and one substitute appearance this campaign, but there is the feeling that he has not done well enough to warrant such regular game time, as some of their supporters outlined when asked about him by Total Villa.

The interpretation of his performances will likely be hindered by the fact that he is playing in the full-back positions, which were occupied by James Justin and Jack Stacey last term, who are now at Leicester City and AFC Bournemouth respectively.

However, it should also be added that his statistics from the current campaign are far from spectacular in their own right.

He has recorded three assists so far, while averaging 0.7 key passes and 0.3 dribbles per game and completing just 74% of his attempted passes.

The defensive performance shown is fairly disappointing, as he makes 0.9 tackles per game, but is dribbled past 0.5 times and commits 0.6 fouls.

Did he really play for us?! No Villa fan has managed to name all of these obscure Villans….

Can you name this obscure former Aston Villa player?

It should be noted that his total of 0.9 interceptions, 2.1 clearances and 0.3 blocks is a pretty respectable return.

Considering he is 22 years old, it will have been hoped that Bree’s current loan spell would be showing a bit more promise than it currently is, as he looks to force his way into Dean Smith’s plans.

While there are some decent statistics in there, the overall showing and fans’ responses indicate that he has struggled to perform this campaign, which will do his case no favours.

Meanwhile, another Villa man on loan has had very different fortunes.
