Censorship is alive and well and residing in B6 as fans had banners taken off them before entering the ground OR removed when they were put up.
Freedom of speech no longer an option Mr Ellis? Feeling under pressure Mr O'Leary?
Gazton Villa had his Ireland flag removed from the Trinity... As he explained:
'On one side it said 'My missus doesn't know I'm Here' and everyone seemed to get a chuckle from it. Then when I went to swap it over to the 'I'm not fickle, I hate Ellis too' side, the stewards got their instructions and it was promptly taken away.'
And continues most succinctly!
He also had a friend who wasn't allowed to take in a banner saying: 'Ellis Out - No More Excuses' into the Witton Lane.
A few banners did make it in, one in the Trinity said 'Club for Sale - Time For Change' (yes, the old VFC one, kindly taken in by Lee Lindsay.
In the Holte the 'We're not fickle, we just don't like you' made another appearance, Ellis Out and DOL out banners were up. One said 'Time to stop the decline, time to go now Doug and a final one said: 'We were here before you, we'll be here after' (or words to that effect).
Despite that, the mood at Villa Park seemed to be one of resignation and acceptance that the mess will continue.
Depressing end to a depressing season.
