Here’s a sample of Villa fans responding to the post:

The Englishman made 190 appearances for the Birmingham club where he managed to score 37 goals and provide 59 assists (per Transfermarkt). The 2007/08 season saw Young score eight goals and provide 16 assists in 39 appearances in all competitions for the club. Now that the footage from that season has been doing the rounds on Twitter, this has given lots of Villa fans the opportunity to share their appreciation for the winger.

What do we think?

It’s great to see these Villa fans taking the time to look back and praise Young for his efforts for the club during the 2007/08 season. This shows that they still have fond memories of Young and his time as a Villa player.
