A Call To Villa Fans

I feel I must make a call for all Villa fans to boycott all the home games until Doug Ellis removes himself from Aston Villa altogether.

By all means turn up to the matches, but gather outside the ground calling for his departure instead.

The shear embarrassment of this action on a repeated basis - seeing an empty ground save for the away fans - should do the trick.


There would be more financial implications for the club because of this, but it's the only way I can think of to remove the wart quickly and cleanly before the healing can begin.


I can't be the only one who has thought of this and it just needs us all to unite in a peaceful manner and make this simple sacrifice in order to gain a better future for our club.

I do agree, ut we need to get a good share of people for anyone to notice. Crowds of 33,000 wont bother Ellis, but we need regular crowds of 26,000 odd. Like the interview on SS News John!

mesage needs to go out to fans on all mesageboards, not just this one

Rest assured if this takeover lark goes tits up Doug will be very lonely at Villa Park next season

Have faith the ellis era will be over in a few days neville will bring back the glory ,if not like denis says, villa might as well play behind closed doors!!

Agree with Denis_B in that if these projected takeover bids fail to see the light of day, then attendances will almost certainly hit rock bottom next season. Boycotting games is the ultimate anti-Ellis stance, but realistically it aint gonna happen. Not in sufficient numbers that is to really make a difference. I've not renewed my season tickets, and unless the old boy goes I'll just pick and choose the home games that I attend. I daresay once I start staying away, then it will become easier to miss this game, that game, and the next game. I'll no doubt find new interests, new ways to spend my cash, and who knows, maybe once the habit is broken, maybe I'll never return.

Chris W I agree that there must be a boycott of the opening home match if Doug Ellis has not moved this take over process forward conclusively. A year ago there was not much support for a boycott of Villa Park (it was unfair to the players) but now desparate times call for desparate measures. Again, I support boycotting Villa Park until Doug Ellis is gone from his 'leadership' role. Thank you.. David Y.

I honestly don't think Doug will still be here by the time we kick off against Arsenal. That said if he is still here then I'd fully support a boycott.
ooahPaulMcGrath
Agree with Denis_B too. He's surely got to realise that he can't hang on to power for much longer. And with all this interest, if he does, he will have some serious questions to answer and will face a real backlash from the supporters IMO

We are talking about Ellis here, We all know that he doesn't give a sh*t about the fans he only thinks of himself..! The only way to remove him is to boycott.
deemz
ideas on the boycott..........1. season ticket holders should use their ticket to access the ground and leave an ellis out banner and then leave.....imagine an empty holte end with loads of Ellis out banners.........2. we need to fill away grounds as the lads need the support....3. Not just tickets must be of merchandise as well - turn the taps off
