In the build-up to Friday evening’s clash between Aston Villa and Bristol City, the club confirmed that youngster Keinan Davis had finally managed to overcome his injury problems and had returned to the training pitch.

All well and good you’d have thought. Plenty of fans continue to have high hopes for the 20-year-old as even though he’s far from the finished product and he definitely needs to add a greater goal threat to his game, he more than proved his worth last season and prior to that with his displays up front as the big man bringing others into the game.
Whilst some used social media for the right reason to welcome him back and encourage him to regain his full fitness so he can be an alternative option for us at the top of the pitch this season, unfortunately, plenty of others thought it would be clever to spam him with anti Steve Bruce messages – which obviously shows the kid a huge amount of respect doesn’t it.
So… where's Brucey loaning you out to? #avfc

Great to see you Keinan, not great that Steve Bruce is still in a job. #bruceout

He can come off the bench with JK and Scott when we are 1-0 down so we can play 4-1-5 ????????
