Nice to see him back on the bench today. Would be interesting to see how he'd play alongside Richards.

Or dare I say instead of? Richards is learning to be a CB whereas it's Okore's natural position. Move Richards to RB and partner Okore with whoever isn't the shittest out of Clark & Lescott. Bring back cissokho & Bennet and I'd be happier about our survival hopes.

Going off the game so far I agree with that.

Delighted to see him back. Considering its his first appearance since the cup final he done great. I'm hoping he'll remain a starter.

Looked pretty good after a shaky start, nice to have him back.

Got better as the game went on for me. Definitely one of quite a few positives we have to take from today.

Great to have him back. Two CBs playing in their respective roles, what a treat.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Okore equipped himself well.  Composure, desire, ability, a cool head.  May have two ball-playing centre backs when Richards returns.  Daub some warpaint on Hutton, toss a few landmines under the left side of the Villa Park pitch and we may begin to resemble the dictionary definition of 'defence'.

He still plays like a giraffe on roller skates and needs to get a whole lot better before he is worth a regular place

 

but saying that I'd probably play him over Clark

Hopefully he keeps it up and I never have to witness Ciaran 'lets chase the ball around like a 9 year old' Clark again.

I wonder why all of our managers, Lambert, Sherwood and Garde have been reluctant to play him? He always does alright but constantly finds himself behind Clark in the pecking order.

I think because playing Okore would mean that Vlaar had be shifted over to his unnatural left side to accommodate him whereas Clark as a left-footed CB didn't cause that issue.

Pairing him with Richards would cause the same problem.

I think managers are more probably a bit put off by his height than ability
