Fans Say Use Money To Sack O'Leary

Fans Say Use Money To Sack O'Leary

Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by Deano, how Ellis should spend the £7million funds generated from the sale of the land. In the statement from the club they explained the money would be used to pay off the losses the club have once again made (no dividends again this season then) but Deano wanted to know what YOU wanted them to spend the dosh on.

Seems 63% are still totally against David O'Leary as they said the money should be used to sack the under pressure boss and pay him and his backroom staff off. What a dream, sack O'Leary before he spends any money on transfers and bring in Martin O'Neil who has said he desperately wants to get back into the game!

33% wanted to see the money go to squad improvements - now that really is a radical thought, buy the land, sell it at a profit and use the profit for the good of the club and team. Genius really.

1% wanted a gold statue in honour of Doug and a further 2% thought Doug deserved a new house and car! We have sent 'the boys' around to the people who voted for those options to pay them a 'visit'.

ONLY 1% thought the board should use it to pay off the losses the board have incurred and no-one thought the money should be spent on Bodymoor Heath.

Common sense surely dictates that it should be spent on improving the team. In January Ellis really played with fire by refusing to sanction even loan deals, and in the end, because of that short sighted decision, we remained in the premiership only by the skin of our teeth. Failure to strengthen during this summer will guarantee a long, hard struggle next season, with the end result being that we might not be so lucky.

Its all good saying sack O'leary and bring O'Neil in but this is just desparate optimism. Ellis is not going to re-invest any money into the club while he is trying to sell. O'Neil is not going to join a club where he will have no money to rebuild. We are just going to have to sit tight and hope we avoid relegation between now and the sale.
