Has Bruce found the formula"



Steve Bruce gave Aston Villa fans what they have wanted for a long time. Two players up-front. Jonathan Kodjia and Tammy Abraham started their first game together in Villa colours and looked very exciting at times. They even linked up for the first goal against Rotherham.

All three looked comfortable and in control for the majority. He did, however, play Mile Jedinak at centre-half but admittedly he had a decent game.
4-4-2 Formation
We lined up with a 4-4-2 formation with Ahmed El-Ghazi completing the midfield out on the right. It is a formation that seems to have gone out of fashion in recent times with most managers opting for formations with just one striker. Although it was far from spectacular we looked very comfortable last night. It can be so easy to be negative but I think we should take the positives from the formula the manager opted to use.
