McLeish Out Petition!

McLeish Out Petition!

**Note to press. This is not a Vital Villa initiative, this is created by: Vital is an open site, we take all fans opinions, we are not looking as a site (only as individuals) to endorse OR disagree with such initiatives, just to communicate them**

Chris from the campaign says:

We have created a petition for the removal of Alex McLeish as manager of Aston Villa. We know that all fans have very different views on how we should approach trying to get rid of him, but one thing for sure is that now almost every fan wants him out.

All we are asking is for all fans of Aston Villa to sign the petition and when it reaches its target we will print it off and deliver it by hand personally to Paul Faulkner.

It might not make any difference and they might even bin it, but at least if had a petition with over 10,000 signatures they would have to realise that a significant number of fans have had enough.

Also if we manage to get a large number of signatures, it might be able to generate some media interest as well and gain the fans more publicity in our mission to get him out. But without the negative vibes that can be associated with protesting.

We believe that this is a peaceful and dignified way to let the club know how we feel, and all It will take is 1 minute to sign.

Thanks and Up The Villa

Ditto - i'm in too, and i've forwarded the link to all my villa mates. Let's get the ball rolling!!

Absolutely! No excuses, no need not to turn up and support the team etc etc.... all the excuses. Either you want Idiot out or you don't - simple!

Well, I don't think McLeish is the only problem. Yes, he probably should go, but is this method getting over the total issue to the club? If McLeish goes would that solve everything? ... And, in any case, it's best left till the end of the season now.
07/03/2012 11:24:00
Signed. Good work! Spread this link as much as you can, the more signatures the better. I doubt it will work, but it's worth a go, isn't it? UTV!

No surprise - I will not be signing and please do not use statements such as 'now almost all fans want him out'. If that were true your petition will contain 30,000+ signatures and not the 10,000 you think you will achieve, but probably won't. OK ask people to sign you petition then get behind the club for heavens sake. You are achieving nothing but division that may lead to the club dropping a division. Lerner's heavy spending is now coming home to roost in supporter unhappiness at the change of momentum. I wonder how many remember the really bad years of relegation to the old third division. Can we have a petition of fans calling for the unhappy fans to give it a rest until the club is safe please?

As much as I want a change of manager, I think it would be better left until the summer. Getting rid of him now is a huge gamble, and might actually be the reason we get relegated. There's no replacement available and Kev Mac is too much of a risk. Everyone seems to think things will be rosy and the players will start performing if McLeish goes, but it could just as easily go tits up and send us down. At least Eck knows how to not lose a few games which could be the difference. But come the summer he has to go.

Gordon, I remember the third division. The big difference then was that I had hope that things would improve. Now I don't.
