'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fear - Who sir, Me sir, Banned sir!

Shock horror, poor little me has been blacklisted and wasn't allowed to attend the press conference!!!! Well, you've got to try these things haven't you? No? Oh, just me then! ;-))

I attempted to walk in with a BBC journalist, as I still had some press bits to do but obviously the club don't like people who speak out against the exulted leader, so I was blocked from entering.

Fair enough, the club have always kept fans at arms length and have kept their little tidy network of people who say 'yes sir, yes sir, yes sir' to Doug. Hey, they've even got a nodding doggy in the press to do the same now.......which is nice - apart from when Doug goes, then it won't be so nice..... no cosy little bed time stories, ahhhh.

I thought it was worth a try anyway, I didn't expect the security to have been forewarned not to let the evil JP Fear in, I mean, perish the thought that someone as destructive as me could be let in, I might give Doug some competition! Some of the press guys were disgusted that I wasn't allowed in, but I just found it funny, I did know I was chancing my arm but yam gorra try it haven't you?!!!!

I rang Phil Mepham and he confirmed he'd authorised the security to keep me out - shame the board of Villa aren't as capable of keeping Ellis out really eh?!

Not to worry, I'll keep talking to the people that I hope will matter far more come the new order, and that lot can attempt to keep their crumbling empire held together, it won't last and I'm sure many of them know it and realise they may soon need to polish off their cv's.

Specialist skills? The ability to nod and smile at the same time?

Hahaha classic. Never mind Fear theres always the Bingo. I'm sure they haven't barred you yet. On a serious note do you ever worry that your rising profile will eventually see you banned from Villa Park?

At least you got to talk to the beautiful Sarah Jaybe Mee. Tried to pull her a year ago but to no avail. Every cloud.........................

I am dismayed to put it politely. You may think you were treated harshly but according to the Guardian, Aitkin was treated with no respect and compasion at all. He's put his health on the line this past fortnight. What was his reward?? He was met with obvious embarressment when turning up for training. Embarressment at the fact everyone bar him new of his eminant removal. Fair enough, that is the consequence of managerial turmoil but there is no reason for downright betrayal and total absence of decent human feelings...Oh the HUNMANITY....THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE ps I hope you read this Mr Fear

People would be more likely to read your posts if you didnt sign them off in such a crap way...... TOAST RAINBOW FROG

J- You evil git! Leave that nice Mr Ellis alone! We here at Chelsea think he's doing a grand job!
merlin
See, you should have offered money. It's smile, nod and take money at the same time.
ULSTER VILLA
Ah, but you read it. Didn't you Mr Frog?....point taken tho..maybe time for a change...I'LL GET IT DUCKY POOS!!!

Its pathetic it really is. I cant even see the funny side of it, I just think its wrong, very wrong. Look on the bright side I guess, and when the takeover eventually happens, all Ellis' yes men, who pamper to his every whim, will be out the door. A blacklist to stop someone entering, its pathetic.
glensider
Well I guess if you havn't got a press card then you can't really expect to get in but as you said, yam gorra try!! I would have given it a go too but I'm sure I would have been just as sucessfull as you, and I'm not even black listed (they don't bother to blacklist people who only come into the country about once a year ;o))
Villain Of The North
You're not a member of the press so what the hell did you expect? It's chancers like you who stop genuine members of the press from being able to their job.
PressGang
Read it Steve64k. Agree Villain, yam gorra laff. PressGang, lighten up, it was a larf, you know, fun? That said, I was doing press stuff, I was wanted before the pc and after. I was also going in with a few of the press. Merlin, totally agree, Mr E has always been a great man for Villa, he is like a father to me!
