Things have changed quickly for Aston Villa in the Sky Bet Championship, with the mood of the club’s supporters souring quickly towards Steve Bruce and sections of his playing squad.
Under a month ago Villa looked well placed to cement a place within the Championship’s top-six, but a string of disappointing results over the course of December has left Bruce’s side outside the top-six.
Villa are currently on a five-match winless streak, which has seen Bruce’s side pick up just three points from a possible 15, with yesterday’s results leaving them eighth.
Brentford were victorious against Villa yesterday, with the Bees running out 2-1 winners over Bruce’s side, who were extremely disappointing on their visit to Griffin Park.
Plenty of Bruce’s side received criticism for their effort at Brentford, particularly Robert Snodgrass, who has failed to impress Villa’s supporters during his loan spell from West Ham United.
Following the 30-year-old’s contribution at Griffin Park, here is how Villa’s supporters reacted…
What does Snodgrass do for his wages ??? #avfc

Snodgrass and Whelan are past it. Both one trick ponies with no legs on them. Hope Green can come back into the squad soon #AVFC

Is there a clause In Snodgrass’s loan deal that means he HAS to start? He’s so slow and predictable to watch #AVFC

The continued selection of Snodgrass baffles, clearly out of form and unable to offer #avfc what he’s supposed to. Not a threat himself or creating enough for others. Sets the wrong example. If standards drop, the player should be dropped.

I'm off work and available today if needed to drive Snodgrass back to West Ham #AVFC
