AVbornandbred says time for action:
After two pathetic draws against the forces that are Wigan and Blackburn, in my opinion two of the worst teams in premiership history, we will be incredibly lucky to stay up at the end of the season.
So, most want McLeish to go but how many of us really believe that Randy will act?
Unfortunately I strongly suspect that we are stuck with this excuse for a manager whatever happens with regard to relegation this year. Randy has a plan and will stick to it unless he is forced to change tack. So how do we, the fans, impact the situation to make Randy change his plans?
Protests are futile as the protests in the summer proved. Protests will always be put down to the vociferous minority and will be derided as the actions of fickle fans.
Boycotts have been suggested, but as has already been shown this season with VP almost half empty each week, season tickets sales mask attendance numbers and the economy is routinely blamed for the drop in numbers rather than the truly awful tripe served up on the pitch.
So what do I suggest?
My suggestion is that we take the opportunity between now and the end of the season to gather support for a season ticket boycott. On line petitions, physical petitions and protests can be used to support the action but the real core needs to be a campaign to persuade as many people as possible not to renew and to each write to the club notifying them of your intent not to renew and to respond to the club's renewal notice with a note to the effect that the reason for not renewing is McLeish but that you will renew as soon as there is a change in manager.
A concerted campaign between now and the season end would deliver the message loud and clear and if season ticket sales look like being below 10k Randy will have to act.
Myself and my wife will sign up as the first two season ticket holders to get the ball rolling.
