Conor Hourihane, who made his Premier League debut yesterday against Spurs, today posted to twitter showing and tweet from his time at Plymouth Argyle.

Hourihane would move to Barnsley before joining Villa, becoming a fan favourite pretty quickly at the club.

Here are how some Villa fans reacted to the news from Hourihane.

Matt was full of praise for the midfielder, who appeared for Villa in the 3-1 defeat to Spurs yesterday.

Ryan says he’s always believed in the midfielder, and it hopes Hourihane keeps it up in the top flight

Declan Pierce was very complimentary about Hourihane, saying that he is one of the main reasons that they are a Premier League team again.

Andrew Horton was quick to make a joke about the situation, maybe Champions League success is on the horizon?

To take the criticism and to use it to grow and eventually prove the doubters wrong shows the mental strength that the player has.

Villa fans will be hoping that there is more to come from the Irishman.
