Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to Birmingham City being fined £42,500 for Jack Grealish incident
Sept. 17, 2019
Jack Grealish scored both home and away against Birmingham City last season and then guided Aston Villa to the Premier League.
Aston Villa supporters on Twitter have provided mixed reactions to Birmingham City being fined £42,500 for an incident which saw a spectator, Paul Mitchell, run onto the pitch and attack Jack Grealish in March.
Sky Sports have reported that the Championship club have been fined £42,500 for that incident.
Some Villa fans have joked that Birmingham's transfer budget has 'gone' as a result of that fine, whilst others stated that the fine is the same as Villa Park's capacity.
Other Villa supporters have also voiced their displeasure at the low amount the Football Association have fined the Blues, who are now sitting a division below their neighbours.
During that game, Grealish went on to score the winning goal in the second half, and whilst they didn't know it at the time, it was the second of a 10-match winning run Dean Smith's side would go which would see them earn promotion to the Premier League.
Here is a selection of Villa fans reacting to Birmingham's fine:
