What is it about Villa fans having to hate on a certain individual at Villa lately? At the moment, Glenn Whelan seems to be the chosen one for some Villa fan animosity, and for what? It’s not as if he’s been one of the worst players at the Villa, or am I seeing something different?
Alan Hutton has had his fair share of hatred from a core of the Villa faithful, most of it comes from Villa fans on social media, but you rarely hear the Villa supporters complaining about them at Villa Park! Hutton as well as Whelan are not by any stretch world-beaters, but they’re not as bad as some might say.
There have been many cases in the past where a Villa player has been the target of some unfair abuse, and I just don’t get it! If a player isn’t good enough, have we the right to say so? Yes of course we have! What about if he’s had a bad match? Yes again! But we don’t have the right to abuse someone just because we don’t like him!
I truly believe that some of this hatred pointed at whomever they wish to hate, is actually because they hate them, and not because of their footballing ability. We should leave it to the manager to come to the conclusion whether they’re good for the first team or not. Like I said, we have a right to voice our opinions on all things Villa, but this latest phenomenon of hating on a particular Villa player, mainly comes from a core of Villa fans on the internet, then it snowballs, then the Villa sheep follow, then it becomes something it shouldn’t. It really needs to stop, but it won’t. UTV
