Aston Villa: Fans will give Steve Bruce a good reception when they face Newcastle

Several Aston Villa fans have admitted that they will give Steve Bruce a good reception when he returns to Villa Park for the first time on Monday.

The 58-year-old is now in charge of Newcastle United, who are set to take on the Villans in a big game in the bottom half of the Premier League.

He was previously the Aston Villa boss, but he endured lots of criticism during the final few months of his tenure in the West Midlands and even had a cabbage thrown at him during a game by one of their fans (Birmingham Mail).

In the end, he was sacked by the club after winning just one of his last nine games in charge (BBC Sport).

Despite the negativity surrounding him during the final weeks of his time at Villa Park, plenty of fans have suggested that there were also good times whilst he was in charge and because of that they will applaud him when he returns with Newcastle.

Indeed, Bruce did guide Villa to a Championship play-off final (BBC Sport), whilst he was also responsible for bringing the likes of John McGinn and Anwar El Ghazi to the club.

Here is how some Villa supporters responded when asked how they would greet Bruce on Monday…
