Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait for the season to get going in the Championship with them one of the favourites to get into the Premier League.
Indeed, after a tough year last season, Steve Bruce has done some good business this summer and it now looks as though the Villans are one of the teams to beat in this year’s promotion battle.
Of course, the club still need to deliver on the pitch but – according to The Birmingham Mail – there’s a belief in the squad that it is getting there.
Villa were always going to be one of the favourites this season for promotion given who they signed but ensuring they gelled was going to be the challenge for Steve Bruce.
This positive report, though, suggests that the club and the players are all pulling together – something that has not happened at Villa for some time.
And, when you consider the size of the club, you can certainly see why other teams should fear them if they do get going as they’ll be like a juggernaut this season coming.
For sure, then, it’s an exciting time to be a Villa fan.
Thoughts, Villa fans? Let us know below!
