fans have been responding on Twitter to Tommy Elphick’s latest comments on his time at the club. 

This comes after Villa fan Twitter account @villareport shared a post on their page relaying quotes made by the player to Brighton’s official website on his time at the Birmingham club.

Did Villa treat Tommy Elphick poorly?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The former Villan revealed that he knew “deep down inside” that he wanted to come to Villa.

This post then gathered a number of replies from who took the time to share their thoughts on Elphick’s time at the club.

Here’s a sample of Villa fans discussing Elphick:

The 32-year-old signed to Villa Park back in 2016, but after a few loan moves away from the club, Elphick only managed to register 46 appearances for Villa before his permanent departure to current club Huddersfield Town last year (per TransferMarkt). Now that Elphick has been speaking about his time at Villa as well as his early desire to play for the club, a number of Villa fans have been reflecting on his short time in a Villa shirt.

What do we think?

It’s nice to see this many Villa fans feeling regretful over Elphick’s time at Villa Park. For whatever reason, things just didn’t work out for him in the last few years of his time there. Since his move to Championship side Huddersfield, Elphick was a regular starter for the Terriers.

But the centre-half picked up a knee ligament injury, resulting in him missing every game since. This awful bit of luck for the defender is a real shame for a player that was on the right track to turning his career around.
