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.
