Protests. Right Or Wrong?

Protests.  Right Or Wrong?

Right, looks like some are organising manager protests for before the Man City game.

I`m not linking to the site because a) I`ve not been asked to b) they`ve not put their name to the protest.

For me, if you are going to protest, like some of us did re: Doug, you have to put your name to it, you have to stand up and be counted, not hide behind a keyboard and you have to have a spokesman for all the press stuff (and to take all the abuse and pee taking that follows)

However, it is an interesting debate on our forum: Click Here and I thought it would make a good poll.

Should protests be done now?

Surely the stay away attendance figures spell out the feelings without unsettling an already very de-stabilised season?

Opinions?

Supposed to have the right to free speech in this country. Bring on the protests.

would rather we get safety first but it is down to each individual really. Never protested about managers, don't think I'll start now, but am not keen on this season at all!

No protests for me..No point at this stage of the season..not happy with McLiesh but I have seen a definite improvement in attacking intent over the past few games..we have been let down by indiviodual poor defensive mistakes..Let's reach the 40 point mark before we do anything to 'rock the boat'...

Pointless. Not going to change a thing. The attendances at VP say it all, Randy must know already we're not happy, but nothing is going to change until the summer, if at all.

It probably won't change a thing but they have every right to protest. The Mcliesh reign is possibly the most bleak I have ever experienced and that's saying something when you consider we also had to put up with DOL and GT not so long ago. There's no point slagging off the fans who want to protest (as some are on other villa sites) because that will only cause a divide. We need to respect each others views and rights and stick together. There's also no point in defending Mcliesh at all. I'm sorry but to suggest we have looked more potent up front in recent matches is irrelevant seeing as those few outstanding performers now seem to be the players in some sort of revolt after sunday. There's also no point in defending his tactics. We have a great team that are capable of winning while paying attractive football. Yet the same 3 players in defence let us down. Mcliesh has shown he doesn't have the guts to make the changes needed. We have alternative defensive options on the bench (and even one currently playing in midfield) yet the same full backs and dunne start every single game.

I think protests are unnecessar . It wont help the team and we beat Citeh last season at home. If the fans protest the players heads drop - which can't help our position in the league. It's a stupid idea IMO. If you want to protest, go do it out side the ground, but not on a match day.

The only thing that might get a result is a complete boycott. Not sure enough will have have the appetite for this yet. See the sense in waiting until we're safe, but what if that doesn't happen? Will be too little too late. As for upsetting the players, don't think they could be much more upset.

protests are futile (blackburn, Newcastle, Man Ure, red scouse etc prove that), still it would require the keyboard campaigners to actually turn up at VP so it might not be a bad thing.
