Aston Villa were beaten 3-2 by Watford at Vicarage Road in their most recent outing.
Newly appointed Aston Villa board member Adrian Bevington does not seem to have impressed supporters of the Midlands club with his latest message on social media site Twitter.
Bevington posted that Villa could not be faulted for their attitude following their 3-2 loss to Watford at the weekend.
Can't fault Villa players attitude & commitment today. Deserved a lot more. Support for the team was outstanding.— Adrian Bevington (@ABevington11) 30 April 2016
However, Claret and Blues fans were not so quick to defend their team for throwing away a lead late on at Vicarage Road - and they quickly expressed their frustrations towards Bevington on social media.
@ABevington11 they probably should try focusing for the entire game...— murph (@murphavfc) 30 April 2016
@ABevington11 & the previous 30 odd games? & 3 managers? I can readily fault.— crowiejnr (@crowiejnr) 30 April 2016
@ABevington11 This tweet really sums up the club. You really think the players attitude & commitment today can't be faulted? Absolute joke— Mark Ashmore (@mg_ashmore) 30 April 2016
@ABevington11 Are you for real? Their attitudes are appalling, they are quitters. The support was outstanding but the team where a disgrace— Mark Ashmore (@mg_ashmore) 30 April 2016
@ABevington11 the place stinks of losers and defeatism. Needs max 6 of current senior squad, everyone else out! Need winners!!— Lee (@villaleebs) 30 April 2016
Villa’s defeat at Watford was yet another disappointment in a season which has been nothing short of disastrous.
Eric Black’s side had put themselves into a good position, when goals from Ciaran Clark and Jordan Ayew gave them a lead to defend, but the game swung after Aly Cissokho was dismissed.
Watford made their numerical advantage count in the last few minutes, when Troy Deeney scored twice to steal the three points out of Villa’s hands.
Villa have now lost their last 11 matches in succession, and they are stuck at the bottom of the Premier League table with just 16 points.
