Anti McLeish Protests Planned v Man City

Anti McLeish Protests Planned v Man City

Been asked to publish this and as an open site and one where I like to put all opinions and contributions up, I've agreed.

I do want to make it clear this site isn't pro or anti this, we aren't endorsing or otherwise. It is down to individuals what they decide with such matters. Be remiss of me not to follow through on the request though

Statement reads:

We have played 24 games this season, we have won 6! Is this good enough? No. This is relegation form.

Alex McLeish is not the man to lead Aston Villa. He had a full pre-season, was given £20m (approx) to spend and has players of the calibre of Darren Bent, Gabby Agbonlahor and Stephen Ireland to work with (also the most promising batch of home-grown players produced in years). Despite all this we find ourselves 13th in the table and without a home win since Bonfire Night.

Now after the débâcle of Sunday with the players now seeming to be in open revolt, the future is looking very bleak indeed.

We need to act now before it is too late and the unthinkable happens.

If you support this, please join us 3pm on Sunday, Trinity road Stand by the McGregor Statue. If you don`t then please ignore this.

As long as it is before the game and not during, the fans have a right to voice their opinion.
07/02/2012 15:05:00
Oh dear. If this was relegation form we would be bottom of the league so factually incorrect. I accept that everyone has the right to their own opinion but I have the right to believe this is the wrong thing to be doing now.

Anything that gets McLeish out!!

What worries me the most is by Protesting and turning on Mcleish now, we are letting Dunne Collins and Warnock of the hook, these same players caused us trouble last year and are back to there tricks, so if we do succeed in ousting Mcleish soon what happans whe a new manager comes in? he wipes the salte clean and Dunne Warnock and Collins get a fresh start to cause Villa more trouble again? I want to support the protest in wanting better for Villa but i am really concerned that Dunneetc are the ones we should be turning on first IMO.

For those that are still saying 'give him a go' i've gone into the archives and pulled up some of the quotes from our 2-0 surrender away at Spurs... one particularly bad egg in a whole load of rotten egg McLeish performances: "Im still raging after that appaling showing...we surrendered before we started with our shocking team selection and dumbfounded tactics...we do not even compete in terms of real effort, fight and spirit & thats what the gaffer is meant to bring if nothing else" - marcobavfc "Heskey & hutton in midfield absolute trash.lets get this ginger ***** out before its to late." - robbo110 "only 30% possesion, only 3 attempts on goal, only 1 on target, .... complete and utter ****e !!! Skysports keep saying AM showed spurs too much respect .... b*ll**** !! he's clueless !!" - bixit "If we were a dog we would need putting down for sure" - p.avfc "Well whos to blame for this pile of crap! Perhaps Mcleish will blame the ref, bad luck......... Anything other than he is the worst manager I have ever witnessed down the villa" - ShaneBlack There's loads more and not just on the tottenham surrender. We've seen far too much dross so far this season, and with McMuppet and his Eckscuses, we're doomed to continue to suffer until this fool no longer graces our great club.

We're screwed either way, we should wait until the summer and then try and ship him out along with the main root of our problems. No good changing things now....Would be funny if we beat City after the protest though!

Can we set up a Facebook page too? Why not try and get 'McLeish Out' trending on twitter? Or perhaps we could occupy Trinity Road? Have you thought of drafting Swampy in too? No protest is complete without a hippy chained to a tree.
