To suggest that Steve Bruce is not very popular with the majority of Aston Villa fans at the moment would perhaps be the understatement of the year.
Villa have one of the best squads in the Championship in terms of talent, but have struggled for consistency in the early weeks of the 2018-19 campaign.
Indeed, Bruce’s side currently sit down in 13th position in the table, and have won just one of their last seven Championship fixtures.
Villa did record a 2-0 victory over Rotherham United on September 18, but could not build on that result as they lost 2-1 at home to Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend.
Next up for Villa is a trip to Bristol City on Friday night, and there will certainly be pressure on the club to pick up a positive result in that match.

Bruce will seemingly start the match in charge, but another poor result would lead to more pressure on the former Manchester United centre-back.
To be blunt, the Villa fans want Bruce gone as soon as possible.

Some of the best players in the league unfortunately we also have one of the worst managers in the league.

Are the board working hard to get in a manager that can make things right?
