An interesting post appeared and then promptly disappeared from everyone’s favourite publication this morning. [The Sun]
The report, concerning 22 year old Villa midfielder Aaron Tshibola, featured the following headline:
It has since been removed.
Responses from Villa fans on Twitter, irrelevant of the story’s authenticity, does capture both the apathy & cynicism which understandably haunts us from the last few years.
As a club, we have infamously struggled to manage our pros.
Presumably in the event that the publication in question has made an error, then an apology will be forthcoming?
However, if the story develops in the other direction, it will be interesting to see how Villa responds to what would be another example of unwanted ill-discipline.
Either way, clarity should be provided promptly.
FA CUP EXIT
Villa tried hard but ultimately didn’t have the quality (or arguably an attacking game-plan) to overcome a Spurs side which had made 9 changes.
Highs: Sam Johnstone & Albert Adomah.
Lows: Leandro Bacuna & Gabby Agbonlahor.
Full highlights of the game are available via the BBC website.
Steve Bruce post match comments:
“Overall I’m pleased with the way we have performed,
The players have done as best they could and that’s all you can ask.
What I’ve been reminded of is where we need to get to.”
