Aston Villa managed to sneak a 1-1 draw yesterday in the evening kick off with Blackburn Rovers.
The Villans battled and kept going until the end at Ewood Park, and were rewarded for their gritty display, as a late free kick from Conor Hourihane flew into the bottom corner and snatched what might well be a crucial point for the Villa and manager Steve Bruce.
Exquisite from @ConorHourihane ????

It was some strike from Hourihane, and is an example of the quality he can bring into the squad when he is on his game and playing to his best.
However, despite the late point and the goal from the former Barnsley man, it would seem that Villa fans were still not happy, something which was evident in the responses on Twitter to the goal above.
We at FLW are always interested to see what sort of reaction club’s fans are having, and we took a closer look at just what was being said in response to the highlight…
Goal of the season contender, surely?

Yeah and I’m sure he will be rewarded by being dropped for 3 weeks

Bruce’s get out of jail free card this week.

Saved Bruce's bacon yet again. He'll probably be dropped next game or played in goal. A thing could happen.

How many more moments of brilliance are we missing due to a clueless manager benching him

Moments of individual brilliance to bail us out after another nothing, disjointed display. Two years and no style of play, as brutally revealed against Fulham, Bruce is yesterday’s man. We stay with him we don’t go up.
