I'm Boycotting Aston Villa

I'm Boycotting Aston Villa

I can't believe the last few days, from excitement at bids coming in, to the fact that a fabulous option (and I repeat, we don't have the details of any of them, so can't fully back any of them ) being driven away.

Doug Ellis is Chairman of Aston Villa plc. That means he has a duty to all shareholders. He is trying to sell the club and will make a personal fortune BUT STILL he wants to stay in power and expects a billionaire to report to him.

HE HAS TO LOOK AFTER THE SHAREHOLDERS INTERESTS - IT IS A LEGAL OBLIGATION.

Anyway, I came to the conclusion last night that I could no longer go to Villa Park whilst Ellis remains in power.

I hope that a deal goes through quickly and this becomes the worlds shortest boycott, but I'm joining the disenfranchised until Doug Ellis is no longer in power at Aston Villa.

I am still hopeful that something will happen, a full bid will come in and be accepted if not I'm not sure if Mr Ellis realises the backlash that might come his way, the little protests will - I would expect - be a thing of the past and mayhem would be the order of the day. Lets hope for the good of all, that doesn't become necessary.

Excellent interview on SSN at lunchtime Mr. Fear. Voiced the thoughts of the majority of Villa fans perfectly I thought

I came to the same conclusion about 2 years ago mate. It's killed me not going down every other week, but however small I felt I needed to make my own personal stand against Herbert!!

Nice one JP. We must talk to him through his balance sheet its the only way. If he messes any more of the deals up Im up for whatever action is organised by the fans groups.

Welcome to the club. I've been boycotting Villa for nearly ten years, if everyone had done the same this cretinous chairman would have been history long ago.

Even though I agree that a boycott is the only option left, I can't help but feel sorry for the players in all of this. How are they going to feel if they run out at the Emirates Stadium with no away fans or at Villa Park against Reading with only about 15k there?

dont feel sorry for them mate, they earn in a week what most of us folk earn in a year, although i dont dislike any villa players, the ones who are being *****ed about are YOU! not the players, they have their nice mansions and ferrari's to go home to...

My dad has boycotted because of the old man for 10+ years now. I and my borthers followed suit this year. If you or your contacts are reading this Mr Learner, there are bucks to be made and smiles to be put on fans faces here. Dont run off because of one lunatic.

I will boycott the home games, but providing there is ticket availability continue to support them on their travels

Ellis is an idiot, I would certainly boycott the home games but if you really want to show how much support Villa have go the away games. Revenue will not go to Ellis but at least you can still support the team.
