He’s Basically in a straight fight with winks TOB Skipp. Can only see him coming 4 th in that. And that’s before we buy anyone.
Winks and Skipp arent anything like Josh, so I dont think they can impact each other squad status that much. TOB is a long ways away from the 1st team imo.
If we sign a Barkley then that would be a direct challenge to Josh, but with the decline of Dembele and the complete uselessness of Sissoko there's still plenty of room for Josh.

Jesus, Villa barely have the ball, and its Onomah's fault. No one has touched the ball for them, what is he meant to do?

Fans opinion are so fickle, next time he has a good game he will be better than Sissoko.

I am confident if Josh played for us he would be show more ability than Sissoko in the middle of the park.

definately think that Villa make Josh look worse, but I do wish he would work harder to find space and get into good spots.

He’s playing with a bunch of choppers who can’t be arsed to keep possession of the ball.

He is learning zero on this loan spell.

He’s just too languid for me. You just want to shake him and wake him up. I realise that’s his style but it’s not for me. I never rated him,but after the World Cup thought maybe. But after seeing 3 or 4 games for villa nothing has changed to what I’ve seen in a spurs shirt which in 30 odd appearances has not been a great deal. I’ve tried to think of other positions scenarios. But tonight he was truly awful and I’d imagine he won’t be getting back in that team for a while. He’s very frustrating because in moments he can look very classy. But I must have seen him nearly 50 times now with spurs England and villa and I just can’t see him ever being good enough for us. Clearly he isn’t a 10 and a deeper CM position is his best. I could see him somewhere like a Brighton or a Swansea I think that’s about his level.

Bring him back. He has a very clear chance to break into the 1st team with Wanyama out and Mousa going through his injury issues. Plus, it would be alot better than seeing Sissoko playing as a CM for us as Josh offers waaaay more.

A young ACM who doesn't work hard enough always, can be a bit lethargic without the ball, is inconsistent and can be a bit erratic performance wise?

Are we talking about Villa or Spurs ?

Just goes missing too much imo. Don’t really like his body language either. Just seems to stroll around most of the time. Can’t compare his attitude to say winks or Skipp.


I haven't seen tonight's game yet, and I know there are facets of Onomah's game that need work, and he may not ever get the chance with us to improve them, but if you'd have seen some of Kane's performances at Leicester and Norwich on loan you'd have said pretty similar stuff. Most of us did.

If I didn't know you, I'd say this is a circumspect way of commenting on Dele. Oh, wait ... :p

He was very bad for Villa yesterday. Was lazy, didn’t track back and complained about everything. But I thought the whole Villa team was shit tbf. I hate how many Villa fans are hating on him because he isn’t their player

Been dreadful tonight. Honestly I just don’t think he will ever be good enough for us. Very frustrating but just doesn’t offer enough.

He's 20. At that age Kane was scoring his first goal for us. Far too early to make such claims. Fucking pathetic some of our fans.
