Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce has obviously been in front of the press cameras following today’s Championship victory over Wigan Athletic.

Welcoming them to Villa Park with Wigan in high spirits following their promotion from League One last season, Villa have reasons to be optimistic ourselves this year after a difficult summer and with goals from James Chester and Birkir Bjarnason, allied to an own goal, it was another welcome three points even if it came incredibly late on in the game.

Six from a possible six isn’t too shabby and it’s our best start to a new season since 1999 and that’ll be a boost to everyone.

Neither of our two showings in 2018/19 have been comfortable, and Bruce was incredibly quick to admit that we still needed plenty of improvement on a performance front, but particularly after the summer we’ve had, he was full of praise for the fans.

“Well done to them. With all the so called doom and gloom that’s been around the place this summer, they’ve shown what a big club we are. We’ve all really valued their support today and it was great to get a winner. To see the Holte End in full voice was terrific.”

I think Ian Taylor ably sums up my thoughts.

  • Hope SB, gets Abraham and that left back, not convinced with Jedi SB and Kodja looks
    off the pace.. McGinn mthm get a decent strikers sap with this gem in mid filed

    PS, Fulham lost, and the deserter went off inured ,Amen.

  • Axel and Chezzy CB’s for me, loan a LB if needs be. Jedi will be furious with himself again.
    Mc Ginn’s deliveries were crying out to be buried and he looks like a class act already, do we really need Snoddy back? Hogan would surely benefit. Great to have 6pts from two less than perfect performances.
