Aston Villa fans call for rapid increase in points or the departure of Steve Bruce

Aston Villa have had a somewhat inconsistent start to the 2018/19 Championship campaign, picking up a respectable nine points from their opening six fixtures of the season, but conceding 11 goals in the process – the most in the top half of the table.

Following a successful fourth place finish last season, which ultimately ended in a disappointing play-off final defeat at the hands of now Premier League side Fulham, the Aston Villa faithful expected big things this season.

With results not going their way, the Claret and Blue Army have begun to turn on the Aston Villa head coach Steve Bruce.

After a tweet stating the next five Aston Villa fixtures, Villans fans took to the comments to express their expectations of the coming matches, with many calling for Bruce to be sacked.

Currently sat in 12th place, Aston Villa will need a rapid improvement in results if they are to be considered real promotion contenders, with some fans thinking that dream cannot be achieved ever with the Englishman in charge at Villa Park.

Here is what the Villa fans had to say.
