@VillasHerc in the Dressing Room Before Man City

@VillasHerc in the Dressing Room Before Man City

*We join the lads preparing for the Man City match*

McLeish: Well lads, I'd say go out there at win, but as we're at home. Well... Let's go out there and try not to embarrass ourselves.

Ireland: Look ... erm... Bass.... About last week, I'm sorry ... I have that t'ing dere dat Tim Howard has.

McLeish: Baldness?

*The dressing erupts with laughter. Ireland huffs*

McLeish: Nevermind Stevie, all's forgiven, I literally cannae afford to stay mad at ye, that's just how tight tha budget Mr.Lerner has me on is. Gary, like I said midweek I want ye te go oot there an' exert yer influence over the senior team.

*Gardner nods enthusiastically*

Bannan: I very much look forward te playin' under yer influence Gary...

Mcleish: NO! ... Not you Barry, no more influence for you.

Bannan: Right boss, I'll be sure ta steer clear of....

McLeish: And definitely no steering! It's just nae yer strong suit.

Bannan: Left boss.... um ... I mean right boss.

McLeish: .. An' Charlie, come on man, turn tha' frown upside down!

*N'Zogbia's frown deepens*

McLeish: Come on, it could be worse the fans could be screaming 'You scottish....' This an' tha' like they do all match long to Alan.

Hutton: What!? Most of tha's not even aimed at me boss! It's at you!

*McLeish raises his eyebrows*

Hutton: Well. Some of it isn't aimed at me.

I don't agree with the protest (even when i helped them set up at the start of the season) Because it's in the middle of the season and i don't think there is a manager out there that could get the respect from the players at this stage of the season, if it was Mark Hughes then yes, but some "potential" manager of the future will not influance our players who will want a big time manager they respect. The young players might thrive on it, but you cannot afford to make or break with the youngsters at this stage. Wait until the end of the season and then call for his head, for now lets just back our team fully win some games, stay up and then look forward to a new manager after this season with the youngsters well developed and senior players leaving which will mean room for new players from the new manager. Btw i don't believe it's the fans fault why we are so poor, i believe it's the pressure of not losing at home when we go ahead, we go ahead and McLeish's tactics is to hold onto the lead, not to futher the lead like Bolton against Liverpool or Chelsea against Man Utd, or even Blackburn against who ever they faced when they smashed some team.

Um.... I didn't mention the protest and I personally don't support it. As has been said in the middle of the season isn't the time for it i think it's pretty clear what the home fans think anyway by the general silence only ever changing to boos. To be honest McLeish only has a small part to blame, do you honestly believe in a small team apparently riddled with players not fond of the manager he wouldn't want more than the 6 week loan of Robbie Keane in a transfer window. He is severely limited and I fear ANY manager coming in would be subject to and would suffer from the same restrictions. We sold our best players year in year out and we don't replace them, of course we are worse. We just need more than anything to win at home and unfortunately I can't see Man City being the team do do us that kindness, though that's not to say I won't be hoping and praying.
