Steve Bruce: Cabbage Incident Sums Up Society We Live In

Steve Bruce: Cabbage Incident Sums Up Society We Live In

Aston Villa and Preston played out an extraordinary game on Tuesday night.

It was one which featured six goals, two penalties, a red card and a cabbage.

Prior to kick-off, Villa manager Steve Bruce had the vegetable thrown at him by an angry fan. What happened on the field will have done little to diminish the supporter's ire.


The game finished 3-3. That was despite Villa taking a 2-0 lead into the break and having a 97th minute penalty to claim the three points. Glenn Whelan missed the kick.

An eyewitness told the Birmingham Mail about the cabbage assault: "It was produced out of a white plastic bag and thrown towards Bruce by angry fan. He shouted 'This is what you’ve reduced us to!'"

Bruce also addressed the incident.

"I find the whole thing hugely disrespectful," said Bruce.


To say it’s disappointing is an understatement for a club like this.

Before we had even started as well...

The guy who is being questioned...unfortunately, it sums up the society we are in at the moment.

There’s no respect for anyone.

Certainly, for someone like him, I’m surprised he knew what a cabbage was.

The draw leaves Villa 11th in the table on 15 points, two outside the playoff places and seven behind leaders Leeds.
