More Protests - This Time Pre Chelsea

PRESS... THIS IS NOT VITAL VILLA ORGANISED, CONTACT mcleishout.co.uk

The latest from mcleishout.co.uk:

How much longer can this go on? Another woeful performance from McLeish`s Villa. Was there any point in even turning up?

He has now had 29 games, we have won 7! We are 15th in the table and ARE in a RELEGATION battle. Look at our remaining fixtures, do you really see us picking up many more points under the current manager?

Not only do we feel it is time to again protest against the manager but now it is also time to target a certain Mr Paul Faulkner. The man that has overseen the worst managerial appointment at Villa Park in 25 years. Since he has been appointed CEO of Aston Villa the club has been an absolute shambles on the pitch. His appointment of Alex McLeish shows he should have no place in the game.

We propose a protest before the game at the McGregor statue at 2.15pm next Saturday and also again after the game. People will sneer and say its a waste of time. But if you all want McLeish out as much as you say you do then surely now is the time to act.

Could they really ignore us all?

McLEISH OUT NOW

Think it is a major mistake after just one protest + a policy so clear, McLeish out... to now throw in 'and Paul Faulkner' does the next one then have 'and now Randy' and the one after 'just McLeish again' ? Too knee jerk. Stick the aim, no need to split it in my humble opinion. Paul Faulkner doesn't choose the manager in isolation for a start, Randy is the boss + Paul has brought in some massive deals to the Club which is overlooked because of the hatred for McLeish. All too confusing. So what do the ones who want a change in manager but not change in board do? As said, too confusing and not good to now be throwing in another thing you want. Clear aims, clear press contact, clear mandate and off you go. Just my humble opinion.

I don't think Faulkner should go, but I don't think he should be anywhere near decision making when it comes to footballing decisions. He's great at the corporate stuff. I'm more annoyed with Randy than Paul. As for McLeish, well, do I really need to say anything? Sack him! Good luck with the protest, but once again they will not listen to us.

i agree with you Mr Fear and astvil123 , its just Mcleish out we need to concentrate on, he has ruined our club and is a poor manager . my fear is whoever we have will get the same stick though, i have to say the some of the players have been poor and i really believe a lot of them are overrated and believe the hype. i would say that Albrighton, Banan, Ireland Dunne, Hutton, Nzogbia ,have not played that well . i am sure a lot of fans will disagree with me about Banan and Albrighton but i beleive Banan will waste his tallent because he thinks he already has it and Albrighton needs to practise his crossing and shooting but there you go thats just my opinion,

Fear - I agree with you. Putting Faulkner in the statement is daft. As I understand it the choosing of a manager is doe after sounding out selected people in the game who are meant to understand the need. A bit like recruitment consultants. So it is not a single person decision. McLeish out? I still think he should be given more time and am not convinced we get any of the big names that most would deem good enough if appointed. Plus we need stability and not constant change. However his statement yesterday that we could not win - echoes of Houllier at City was a stupid one. We all want the team to go out and fight for the shirt. To say we want a win before the game and then change after it only says that no-one can believe what is said pre-game anymore.

I agree, leave Faulkner for another day. The main thing and the most important thing is to build up the pressure and get this turd out at the end of the season! I BEG all ditherers who don't like/want Idiot to get up and join this protest. Ok, it may not work, but if we don't try we don't know do we???? It's got to be worth a shot, it's too important not to make the effort...... come on you Villa fans....... PLEASEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think It's about time we got rid of Doris the tea lady too. Add her to the list and I'll definitely be there!

I posted something similar to this on another site but it fits here as well. Before the Spurs capitulation, Faulkner did an interview with Tom Ross and stated, among other things, that with the squad we have we should be challenging for a Europa berth at the very least. Now, my maths has never been that great but I'm pretty sure 15th place does not get a team into Europe. In my books, based on that level of expectation (a Europa League challenge), being in or on the verges of a relegation battle must mean that the manager has failed quite dismally. Now, as mere fans it's nigh on impossible for us to pin down a busy CEO, but those that do have access... Kendrick and Abrahams don't seem on the ball enough to ask the questions that matter. If there has been a shift in expectations from Faulkner, shouldn't the local 'scoops' be trying to glean that from him? And I read the Q & A with Kendrick and he seemed to come across as one of us, so, I wonder why things like this never get published? These protests will never work while the local and national press and the majority of the fans remain indifferent to the situation we find ourselves in.

Every single person in the entire footballing world can see that McLeish at Villa is and always will be a disaster. Randy just doesn't want to admit he was wrong. Either that or he just doesn't care about Villa anymore.

@Jonah, as you know, Doris the tea lady is now only part time, still makes the best tea and scones going and therefore sir, you are quite quite wrong to want to protest about her as well!

Rawlie... 'another site'? Sorry, I don't understand, there are other Villa sites?!?!?! Joking aside, the expectations haven't changed and I believe them to be right, we have a few bad apples in the squad imho, they need managing and then when we can, selling, however there is no way we are as bad a squad as our position shows and so I draw the same conclusion, transition or not, the manager is failing in his job.
