The Fans Have Turned

The Fans Have Turned

Normally the last to turn when the Villa are failing, the away supporters today more than made their point.

The press at large might think we are moaning for the sake of it, or because McLeish is an ex Birmingham manager - but who expects accuracy from the national media.

There is however a tweet from Club Ambassador and all round top man Ian Taylor that should speak volumes to those inside and outside the club.

'Afraid the fans have had enough. The most hostile I've heard towards the manager. They spend their cash and entitled to vent frustration.'

It could've and should've all been so different. Even trying to go for it in games instead of this parking the bus nonsense (sorry Alex it's a not a myth you are a defensive manager, you can't say you have been playing three strikers when one of them is Heskey in bloody midfield and Gabby on the sodding wing!).

You still want to win the fans over...try and win a game then.

Just to put this into some sort of perspective. Yes I was there today and the performance was poor. Wigan deserved to win over the 90 minutes. We had a few chances but they were sporadic and there was no concerted attacking play or intent. Midfield was eak BUT we had two inexperienced players there and they need time to find their feet, Thought Bannan ran his socks off and he made some good passes. Listening to those around me even before the game started, its clear that they will never accept McLeish. I understand the feelings but after the Wolves debacle be careful what you wish for.

Our midfield does not boss other midfields. Both GG and Bannan are good players but they need a quality midfield general to play off. Also, how can you bring Heskey on to play wide when you have Charlie sitting on the bench? It's madness. And no doubt we'll be without Bent for a while............ it isn't good.

Ginger couldn't win a raffle. Lerner is to blame, but he is no where to be seen as usual. Had enough of this regime and our so called 'custodian'... We need an 'owner' Randy. Come and do what Deadly (all his faults aside) done best and had the stomach for, show your face and prove you 'own' Aston Villa. Your tenure of late shows nothing but cowardess, and contempt.

0 careful what you wish for!!!! Accept the dross that is being dished up now? I don't think so.....I and countless others wish for a new manager and new direction. This has to be one of the worst appointments in our long and illustrious history. McCleish OUT

What's just happened at Wolves is a clear signal to everyone in the league.

Whats happened to Wolves? Going 2-0 down to Newcastle away and ending up drawing 2-2? Playing well under a man the players and fans respect? Rather risk having someone like that take over Villa temporarily than having this fool at the club, least we would get at least some value for our money when watching them play.

VILLA 4 LIFE. you are right about what has happened at Wolves. They sack their manager and then get a draw from being 2 down....a game they would have lost under their previous manager and guess what... 1 point gained......There is only one answer for Aston Villa and that is to sack the manager....McCleish OUT
25/02/2012 21:55:00
Yeah well i'd like to see us sack Mcleish, offer the job to a manager in a shi*** team and get turned down. Wait...that already happened in the summer...

I like what i saw on another Villa forum for a banner at VP, and i quote ''It's not where you are from it's where you are taking us!!
