Dr Tony Xia’s statement on Friday evening when most were winding down from a busy week at work certainly set tongues wagging on Aston Villa’s social media pages.

With his ‘explanation’ of the current state of play at Aston Villa – I’ll leave my thoughts for a separate piece – he certainly covered a few topics as he attempted to quell concerns and speculation but I’m tempted to think that spectacularly backfired given the guff headlines I’m seeing from the usual outlets now.

For some, the statement certainly worked though they are calmer and happier and Xia sees some trust and faith returned for them. Better, his statement has managed to re-engage some other debates like the future of Steve Bruce for example and we have fans from all walks of life picking and choosing what they like/hate/conveniently forget to suit their own perspectives on our gaffer.

That took a fair portion of its own on the social media reactions although I’m still clueless why that took precedence for some fans given the enormity of what was said and more importantly wasn’t said – but, each to their own.

As a fan of Scott Hogan and knowing we don’t use him to his strengths, I have to say anyone who thinks he’s our best target man and Grabban is a better winger needs to boil their head though.

To his statement…
