Villa Fans Combined and Aston Villa Shareholders Association once again plead with Doug Ellis to leave Aston Villa.
The club has been brought to its knees and no matter how much he tries to deflect the blame onto the manager or players, the one common denominator in the years of mediocrity and failure is Mr Ellis himself.
'Doug, your time is up, the fans and shareholders have had enough and in order not to face mass protests and disruption next season, you must leave for the good of the club.'
'The board of Aston Villa have failed to control Mr Ellis and should hang their heads in shame, in any other business these people would have been sacked a long time ago, now we call on Mr Ellis and the board to take the correct actions or face the consequences.'
'The AGM is usually a lively affair and the last agm we were once again mislead, especially in regards to the finances for Bodymoor that they claimed had been 'ringfenced'. We will not put up with another season of failure and lies and will organise mass protests for the AGM if this current board remain to illustrate that fans and shareholders alike are not prepared to put up with the laughing stock they are turning our once mighty club into.'
'Mr Ellis, for the good of Aston Villa and for the good of his health, must go and he must go now, if not he will face the wrath of the fans for the entirety of next season and the splits within the club will continue to widen'.
'We salute the players who have stood up for the club and agree with every word of the statement they issued. We aren't interested whether the statement was from one player or all the players, their words echoed what the fans, former players and managers have said for years'
'Now Mr Ellis has to listen to reasonable offers and stop hiding behind an unrealistic valuation of Villa. Now is the time for a clean sweep, if not Villa face a long hard season and will once again fight relegation'.
'We call on Mr Ellis to show some dignity and step down as chairman with immediate effect'.
'There has never been a better time for the rumoured consortiums to come forward, the groundswell of good will a well thought out approach would bring shouldn't be underestimated, they'll certainly be guaranteed an unprecedented rush for season tickets and see Villa Park sold out throughout the season. The fans are waiting for someone to restore Aston Villa to it's rightful place amongst the elite of Europe.'
