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?
