Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern are expecting a bright future under Steve Bruce with them hoping for a return to the Premier League next season.
The Villans have been through a lot of troublesome times in the last few years but things do seem to be finally getting back on track under the former Wigan and Birmingham manager.
Indeed, many do think that they are one of the favourites to go up next season and the job Bruce has to do is surely get the best out of the squad he has in 2017/18.
And, as reported by The Birmingham Mail, the Villa manager has issued Jack Grealish a challenge for the near future to ensure he gets the best out of his massive potential.
“He’s got to be a better professional and stop hitting the headlines for the wrong reasons.
“There’s never any doubt about Jack Grealish’s ability.”
Strong but fair words from Bruce, then, who obviously wants to see the young midfielder start getting to the heights he has suggested he will be able to.
Indeed, if he does, Villa will surely be on the right track to promotion next season.
Thoughts, Villa fans? Let us know below!
