Clear Message To Ellis and O'Leary

Clear Message To Ellis and O'Leary

The Birmingham Mail had a phone poll yesterday with regards to David O'Leary and Doug Ellis. We are running the same poll online.

The answer from Mail readers seems to be a very loud message to both manager and chairman, YOU ARE NOT WANTED AT ASTON VILLA!

ASTON Villa fans have voted to see the back of both manager David O'Leary AND chairman Doug Ellis.

80% called for O'Leary to go, 88% for Ellis.

Personally I would love to see them both stay, I think that the pre-season build up is going superbly, and hopefully the current morale and togetherness can carry on well into the new season. Theres nothing that pleases me more than to see the club united as one and striving to be where it belongs. ;o) SOTV.

lol. Birmingham City. Man City are known as 'the bitter's but I refer to you lot as 'the irrelevants'. For obvious reasons.

He he ... love it... Only been fishing for 10 mins and a bite already!!

Great to see the noses having some fun, on a more serious note can you see DD taking any heed of what we are all saying about him. He will get rid of O'Dreary and think we will all be happy with him again. When DOL is gone we still need to keep up the Ellis Out campaign.

Go away lilblues*** 8 points made the difference.

Is that Green Giant 'aged' 13 ?? And you call us bitter?? bite... bite... More serious note, I dont think DD will ever walk away, which is a shame, as you probably wont do anything while he stays! (I'm sure you're all aware of that tho). I think either Curbishley or O'Neil would do a good job there, but with Deadly gone they could both do a fantastic job. Feel sorry for you, sooner they both go, the better for you all.

It will happen, as frustrating as it is, the man is 82, never one to wish pain on anyone, but he cant go on forever, it would be alot worse if he was 54 and he was saying he'd be here for life. I have a mate who knows one of his old nurses, he left the job because he couldn't stand working for a man who runs a club he loves so much. he told me a story about Ellis selling his rolls royce, he was asking way over the asking price and insisting that he retain a set of the keys so he could go over and check it at random !!!. I dont know how much truth is in this story (allowing for 'artistic license') but it sure does sound familiar!

Seems our poll shows that the fans aren't going to be fooled by yet another manager, backs up the phone poll in the Mail for sure!

Yes Fear, we need to keep sending that message out so DD knows it is not just O'Dreary we want out, and even the unlikely appointment of Martin O'Neill will not change that. By the way lil_blues_fan good to see some People at the other secound City big club with us on this one, thank you
