'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Letters Of Support For Tim Nash

Plenty of emails and letters of supports to the players who made the statement to Tim Nash of the Express and Star.

Just a couple extracted, JL posts on Vital Villa, Listman and Villa Talk and Blandy is a Villa mate who I can no longer meet up with because he won't come out to play on match days due to Doug :(

Fans have had enough, Doug:

A big thank you to Tim Nash, your excellent Villa reporter and also of course to the players who stood up against the short sighted, self-serving actions of Doug Ellis.

I'm a Villa fan withholding my hard-earned from the club because of Doug Ellis. I've not renewed my long-held season ticket.

There's a worsening trend with Villa. Just look at the last three managers who all resigned - name another club where that has happened. Usually they are sacked.

Both Graham Taylor and John Gregory have spoken about how the club is run by Doug Ellis for Doug Ellis. And now we have the players saying that Ellis is working against what they want to achieve.

The CEO, Bruce Langham, resigned after less than a year, and before him Mark Ansell 'left by mutual consent' after unsuccessfully trying to get Ellis to seek investment in the club.

The fans are sick of him. I don't demand success, I don't feel success, or our place in the Premiership is our right. But we do have a right to demand that everyone at the club does their utmost to give the players the best possible chance of success, and winning games.

It's absolutely clear that this has not been the case for a long time and that the cause is Doug Ellis.

David O'Leary has failings, but the club will not turn itself around while Ellis remains in control. He simply has to go.

Pete Bland, Lytham

Time for a change:

The players, the fans and everyone other than the chairman and his hired sycophants see the need for change at Villa Park.

Congratulations are due to Tim Nash for the fact that Villa players trusted him and his paper to tell it like it is.

But our chairman has no time for the views of the press, his players or of those whom he labels with contempt as mere 'men of the terraces'.

He will stay on in the face of all criticism because his shareholding allows him to ignore the will of the people time after time.

Rather than question whether the statement is a true reflection of how far our football club has fallen since he took over the then Champions of Europe in 1982, he prefers to seek vengeance against those who dare to question his performance.

There can be no whitewash at Villa Park this time.

J. Lewis, Streetly

"...Blandy is a Villa mate who I can no longer meet up with because he won't come out to play on match days due to D Doug ..."

Can you imagine how many people out there are like Blandy? Can you imagine a time when you just cannot get a ticket to see the Villa?

Can you imagine a time when a 60,000 seater stadium is needed?

I actually can.

Maybe Ellis can publish his own paper, which just portrays his views the way he wants people to see them. They could blame all the wrongs of the club on the manager at the time, whoever that may be and hold Doug up as a model businessman, tennis player and all round good guy. Maybe they could call it the Evening Mail or something? Oh does that already exist. B**locks!

Tim Nash would become a Villa Park legend virtually overnight, if his article proved to be the starting point for the uprising that finally removed Ellis from Villa Park.
