Aston Villa fans mock club’s tweet about Second City derby

Aston Villa fans are not best pleased with the club’s social media wizards as they gear up for this Sunday’s Second City derby against Birmingham City.

The Villans tried to rev up the excitement for the encounter by claiming that they are ‘feeling the buzz’ and to demonstrate this, included a gif of the PG Tips monkey spinning around.

Some fans were left shaking their heads as they did not quite echo the sentiment shown by the club’s Twitter feed.

This is not the first time that a tweet from Villa has attracted attention for the wrong reasons.

Who could forget the infamous video created for Jonathan Kodjia? The forward’s dancing goal celebration was super-imposed into various film scenes.

Social media activity aside, the club have a big game ahead of them as they prepare to welcome arch rivals Birmingham to Villa Park this weekend.

Harry Redknapp will be the new man in the away dugout for the Blues following the departure of manager Gianfranco Zola.

As it stands, Villa are 12th in the Championship with three games left to go, while Birmingham are just three points from relegation.
