Aston Villa supporters have been left dumbfounded by the FA’s decision to charge the club for failing to keep control of its players during last Sunday’s Second City derby.

It was a game which involved a host of emotions, no less so than when Jack Grealish was shockingly punched by a supporter. However, Birmingham players reacted justly to the situation by consoling the Villa man. The same player then threw himself into the crowd after scoring the winner, but both clubs have now been hit by FA charges.

Villa fans are baffled that their club has been punished, slamming the FA for what they feel is an injustice. The reaction on Twitter was scathing, with individuals laying into English football’s governing body, calling them corrupt and out of touch.

Words continued to be thrown in the direction of the FA who were branded penny pinchers by one Villans fan as another suggested they’d completely missed the point.

Much of the debate centred around the incident involving Grealish as supporters failed to see no reason why he couldn’t celebrate in the nature he did after being assaulted.

However, there was some praise for Birmingham, despite being rivals, with some of the reaction hailing both sets of players’ conduct by commenting that there had barely been any confrontation.

Earlier this week, a Blues supporter was jailed for 14 weeks following the Grealish attack.
