Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern are trying to remain upbeat – though the start to their season really has challenged that mood.
The men from Villa Park came into this campaign considered one of the favourites for the Championship title but they have undergone a sub-par start for sure.
Indeed, after drawing at home to Hull City – not a terrible result in isolation – things got much worse over the weekend as they lost to Cardiff pretty handsomely.
For sure, then, if Steve Bruce’s players didn’t know that this season was going to be a walk in the park they do now, and so now it’s time they buck their ideas up.
Whilst we wait to see if they do, though, it’s been confirmed that Leandro Bacuna is not going to be a part of things anymore with him off to Reading:
Leandro Bacuna has joined @ReadingFC on a permanent deal…

Fans, then, have reacted to this and so here’s the best of the response:
Fans are being a bit harsh on the guy, good luck at Reading Leo.

Laughed when we went down? Wanted to leave to play champions league football… Good riddance.

Thanks for the free kicks against Cardiff and Man City.

Good luck, Leo. Unlike most, think he’s a terrific character and a useful player to have around. I’ll miss the fella.
