“You don’t know what you’re doing!” - Steve Bruce booed off by Aston Villa fans as promotion hopes dwindle

A crushing loss to Brentford has caused a bit of a stir.

Aston Villa’s away following has been the highlight of the past three seasons. Almost always a sellout, our road contingent hop around the country to watch (usually dire) football, and loudly back the Villa.

However, it’s not just support that’s loud, but opinions. Steve Bruce was jeered off at Griffin Park by an angry Villa fanbase.

Big thanks to @VillaDan for filming. Give the man a follow.

Why are we bringing you this stuff, that other sites will tantalisingly use to lure you in? Because it’s important in the sense that this is seemingly the first time Villa’s vocal aways fans have turned on Bruce this season (ignoring the Reading and Cardiff games). Turning on him right now is deadly for Bruce’s stint at Villa, as much like Di Matteo before him - the loud criticism and cries of ‘you don’t know what you’re doing’ will be heard by the head honchos at Villa Park.

Will they act? Who knows, but certainly - the #BRUCEOUT supporters are being louder than the rest.

Despite the mass of individual errors plaguing Villa right now, there also seems to be a lot of positional confusion and a lack of willingness to get forward. Steve Bruce is either holding Aston Villa back, or he’s not telling his players what they need to hear.

A shame, it was all going so well.
