Many Aston Villa fans are reacting after hearing Dean Smith discuss the fact that the club will not be able to welcome their supporters back to the stadium as it currently stands.
Birmingham was placed into tier three by the government’s new guidelines, and the Villa manager spoke on his disappointment: “No fans is a big blow.”
It is understandable that he feels this way as those sides who are based in tier one and two locations will be allowed a small minority of fans back.
Upon hearing these comments, some supporters were quick to agree but many have also pointed out their poor home form as the only victory at Villa Park that they have picked up so far is the emphatic 7-2 win over Liverpool.
That said, some home matches, like the 2-1 loss to Brighton and Hove Albion, could have been a much different result if the club had some supporters back.
Smith will be hoping that they can come back sooner rather than later to help turn Villa’s good start to the season into a great one.
