Villa fans react negatively to club’s Bruce tweet

It is one year to the day since Steve Bruce took charge of Aston Villa.

As expected, Villa’s official Twitter account paid tribute to the 56-year-old on social media, but not too many of the club’s supporters felt like celebrating.

Bruce led Villa to a 13th-placed finish in the Championship last season, while the Villans currently sit seventh in the second tier after 11 games of the 2017-18 campaign.

Villa have actually won four of their last five matches in all competitions, and have not been beaten in the Championship since August 15.

Indeed, the former Premier League club will travel to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday night off the back of three straight victories in the Championship.

Bruce has had to face a lot of criticism in the early weeks of the campaign, and it seems that the former Manchester United centre-back still has a fight on his hands to convince the bulk of Villa supporters that he is the man to lead the club back into the Premier League.
