News of Steve Bruce’s departure from Aston Villa this week has taken a few twists and turns in the press as the old pal’s act comes fully into force about us nasty Aston Villa fans.

Even our owners are coming in for stick for some quarters and whilst you fully expect Bruce’s friend’s in the game to rally to his cause, a bit of intelligent homework would probably be wise before they take to social media and prove that are part of the ‘mad few’ rather than one of the enlightened ones.

A case in point:

Ps – it’s ‘haven’t’.

It did lead to an interesting conversation though as opposition fans piped up given their superior knowledge about our club. Kirkland’s best decision was probably in quickly ducking out of the debate.

I’ve included a few more reactions than I normally would as I think they all deserve airtime for varying reasons, at no point in what I scanned did a Villa fan mention Birmingham as a negative, as you’ll see for yourselves, it was all about development, tactics, players out of position, the run of results we are again on with plummeting form and so on.

That won’t change the narrative in the old pal’s act routine we’ll see for the next few weeks but nonsense like this deserves to be shut down as in many ways it’s actually an insult to Bruce himself because it gets in the way of valid criticisms, but also the very valid praise he continues to receive for the job he did.
