'The worst' - Bruce delivers verdict on Aston Villa boo-boys after Brentford draw
By Danny Wright
Steve Bruce has admitted that boos from the Aston Villa supporters were justifiable after his side were held to a goalless draw with Brentford on Saturday.
The Villains have had a poor start to the season by their ambitious standards and although it is still early doors, the West Midlands side look like they have failed to make any progress over the summer break.
Supporters have made no secret of their anger towards Bruce and the boos that rang out around Villa Park after the final whistle on Saturday seemed louder than ever according to the under-fire boss.
When asked about the boo-boys, Bruce was quoted by the Birmingham Mail as saying: “Yes, of course.
“It’s arguably the worst we’ve been since I’ve been here.

“I’ve been here for nine months now but we today we didn’t have any spark.
“We didn’t do anything with the ball or without it.
“We look jaded.
Villa stayed 18th in the Championship standings after they failed to pick up a win against Brentford, who are yet to pick up a victory in their first six fixtures of the season and sit inside the relegation zone at this early stage.
The summer months saw Aston Villa make just a few additions to their squad while most of them were either on loan or as a free transfer.
Players like John Terry, Glenn Whelan and Ahmed Elmohamady are yet to really make an impact in Bruce’s set-up, and as this poor run goes on, it may be time for Dr. Tony Xia to start thinking about a change of manager.
