Barnsley fan here, massive fan of Hourihane after what he achieved with us and the absolute gentlemanly manner he conducted himself in the entire time he was with us.
Just wondered what your thoughts are on him as an overall player? I know he's doing well for you guys.
He's a bit of a legend at Oakwell. The only player I can think of who, after leaving us, enjoyed a standing ovation and a song on his return (with Villa).
From what we all saw, he's the absolute nicest bloke any football club could wish to have on their books. He had a close relationship with our late chairman Patrick Cryne, still pops up sometimes in our match commentary as a guest, and left us with the finest farewell present in the form of a stunning 30 yard freekick vs Leeds on the tellybox. In my 20 years of watching the Reds, he's the best midfielder I've ever seen play for us.
Basically just seeing if you know how lucky you are 😂
