86% Prepared To Boycott Match

86% Prepared To Boycott Match

We asked 'what are you prepared to do if Ellis stays?' in a poll suggested by Akuzed.

An amazing 86% said they would take part in a full stay away match boycott.

3% preferred staying out of the seat for the first 5-15 minutes.

2% would take part in banners, posters and chanting.

1% wanted protests at directors houses and 4% said a mix of the above.

Only 4% said they weren't prepared to do anything because they had paid for their ticket.

A near empty stadium every home game would be the perfect gesture by the fans against Ellis and the board. Can you imagine the media coverage? It would put them under such intolerable pressure they would effectively be forced to sell and do so quickly. Either that or the old man would die of a heart attack. Either solution is acceptable to me.

Yes I think the only way to prove to Ellis that we have had enough of him is to stay away from matches. I have booked and paid for flights and match tickets for my son and I to go to the Newcastle game. I will fore go the cost and boycott the game if I felt there was a "proper" boycott.

I think everyone shouldgo to the games but just boycott the Doug Ellis stand

Irish Villa - by all means go to the away matches, it is the boycott of Villa Park that matters.

Saurat, it is the home game v Newcastle I am talking about. I live in Dublin so they are all away games.

Boycottting matches is fine....but by not buying tickets Villa will lose out on vital revenues...we only have 19 home premiership matches in a season! What I would suggest is boycotting all home matches from the start of the season but for all true Villa fans to still buy their ticket and not enter the ground...obviously this doesnt apply to season ticket holders...can you imagine how embarrased ellis would be if we only got an attendance of 5-10,000? it would be great!

86% ? How many votes are we talking about here. %es are what most orgs hide the actual numbers around. 86 out of 100 sounds conclusive, but 100 supporters out of a possible 30`000 attendence ? I have already laid out £800 for next season and that was stretching the family budget, so I will be inside to protest, but behind the team.

If Ellis remains in charge, as I personally fully expect him to do, it would be tremendous to see an attendance figure of around 20,000 for the Reading game. I never thought I'd ever say that, and I'm ashamed that its come down to thinking along those lines, but desperate times call for desperate measures. I certainly wont be in attendance, not if the old boy is still in control, with no sign of change on the horizon.

There is no way iam buying anything i.e. - shirt any merchandise. nor will I go to any game this season and next if ELLIS is still there and I personally believe he will be chairman this season this could be a smokescreen to get fans of his back.. So he can turn around and say that there were not good enough offers.i.e. investment… this may seem like a illogical point of view, but we all know what Uncle Herbert is like!!!
