The Club Spin On David O'Leary

O'Leary Leaves Villa

On 17 July 2006, Aston Villa Plc ('Aston Villa' or the 'Company') announced that the board of Aston Villa (the 'Board') had set up an internal enquiry into the circumstances surrounding the publication of a statement purportedly from the entire first team squad.

That enquiry has completed its investigations. Although no misconduct by the manager, David O'Leary was uncovered, as a result of the investigation, it has been agreed that an amicable parting of the ways was in the best interests of all parties.

Accordingly, a compensation package reflecting the situation has been established and it has been mutually agreed to terminate the contract of David O'Leary, with immediate effect.

end.......

Amicable? O'Leary, blow the lid on the lot of them.

Amazing how it was only when there was a hint of criticism of Doug that O'Leary goes, they didn't react when he turned on the fans did they?

Compensation money = hush money...

How much has it cost to buy his silence ? 1.7m ?

Exactly! That's probably what the discussions were about - the small print about what can and can't be said.

Congratulations to all you Villa fans from all at Vital Liverpool HQ on getting rid of that ******* O'Leary. Lets hope its one down,one to go and you guy's can get rid of that other ******* Ellis as well, and then you can really start to make some progress. All the best next season.

Doug always puts a 'hush' clause in his compo packages!

one down and one to go. we must all keep the pressure firmly on ellis and not let him stay on to appoint another manager. ELLIS OUT...!

Here, Here. Ellis must go, no more money to Ellis - not a penny. America says the only way to speak to terrrorists is in their language - violence, the only way to speak to doug is through his wallet! BOYCOTT! Thanks Liverpool supporters for the kind contributions.
