Aston Villa brutally troll Derby fan with simple tweet

Aston Villa have chosen to brutally troll a Derby County fan with a simple tweet via their social media account this week.

The West Midlands outfit hit back cheekily to a response from a Rams supporters on social media as the club prepare to run out in their new away kit for the first time.

Villa will be wearing their black strip for when they travel to Arsenal this upcoming weekend and, in ahead of that fixture, they’ve offered the Villa fanbase on Twitter the opportunity to access a mobile phone wallpaper with their names and desired numbers on the back of the away top.

They have had hundreds of comments, however not everyone who replied to the tweet were Villa fans as you can see below.

One Derby fan wanted ‘Bamford 9’ on the back of his wallpaper kit – and for those who don’t know what that means, it’s of course in reference to the former Rams player who is is on fire in the Premier League with Leeds United right now, hitting a hat-trick against Villa for the Whites recently. Villa, though, offered gave the perfect response to the fan’s reply which went down a hit with the supporters.

Instead, they offered replied back with two images of away shirts – emblazoned with ‘Anwar El Ghazi 21’ and ‘John McGinn 7’.

Again for those who are unsure what this means, it’s a throw-back to Wembley 2019, when the Dutch winger and Scottish midfielder beat Derby in the Championship playoff final and meant Villa booked a place in the Premier League – a place they’ve remained ever since, surviving by the skin of their teeth on the final day of the 19/20 season with a 1-1 draw against West Ham.

Since that nerve-wracking day, Aston Villa have improved their form dramatically, manager Dean Smith turning hit side from relegation contenders to a top 10 club, though it’s early days.

Dean Smith has called on Villa’s players to take the momentum from their late rally against Southampton into Sunday’s match at Arsenal.

Smith said: “The way we finished the game against Southampton was really good and we need to take that into next week at Arsenal. I would have taken four wins out of the first six matches.

“But the momentum we had has been paused slightly with the last two results.

“People will look at the fact we have conceded seven goals at home over those games but I do not believe we are porous in any way, shape or form.

“It is my job now to make the lads realise that.


“It was simply the quality of the opposition we have played against.”

Defender Tyrone Mings agreed, saying: “We have to start games well, this league is unforgiving, so we have to be at our best from the first whistle.

“We have shown resilience and bounced back before.

“We have to do it again.”
