Dear Mr McLeish...

Dear Mr McLeish...

A letter from McLeishOut....

Dear Mr McLeish,

I am writing this letter to urge you to consider your position as Aston Villa manager. You have been in charge of this great club for 292 days and it has been nothing short of a disaster. You have presided over the worst season seen at Villa Park since the relegation year of 1986/87. We have a truly awful record of 7 wins in 30 games and are in serious danger of being relegated. The similarities between Aston Villa and your relegated Birmingham City side are uncanny. From studying your record I see you have been in charge of a 130 Premier League games and yet you have only won 33, so our record this season is not a blip but it is the norm where you are manager.

So in the 3 seasons you have been a Premier League manager you have managed to oversee 2 relegations, and are a good bet to make it 3 this year. With this in mind I ask you to consider your position and as a professional admit the job is too big for you and walk away before any more damage is done.

I would like to ask you why you believe you are the man to take Aston Villa forward as even your record in Scotland leaves a lot to be desired, especially as you managed to achieve the impossible and finish 3rdwith Rangers in a normal 2 horse race and lead them on their record streak of 10 games without a win.

Also I would like to ask you why throughout the course of this season 2011/12 you have managed to blame everybody for our current predicament, but have failed to take any responsibility for it yourself. Why is that? Surely as manager it is your responsibility? A true leader in whatever field of life show's his/her true courage in taking responsibility when being at the helm. I liken you to a certain Captain Smith of Titanic infamy. We are in my humble opinion akin to the SS Titanic in being unsinkable and your tactics and that of your crew in particular a certain Peter Grant are in true fashion blind to the iceberg ahead. Once you sink Aston Villa, we will remain at the depths of the English Football League and you will leave with a golden handshake of millions of £££'s. Go look in the mirror and say to yourself 'Am I the man to lead Aston Villa Forward' Your conscience should tell you to do the honourable and decent thing... Walk now Mr McLeish and admit that you could not do the job you said you could when interviewed. You tried, you failed, and are now a multi-millionaire who is unemployable at any other English Premier League club

I have been following Aston Villa for over 25 years now and come from a Villa supporting family with over 100 years` worth of support, and I can honestly say this is the worst I have ever seen. Aston Villa FC are in major decline and you are at the root of the problem. A poll conducted by a Villa fans site suggests 96% of fans would like you to step down as manager, but still you suggest the silent majority are backing you? I can assure that you have managed to lose the backing of all Aston Villa fans with your negative brand of football. Also the fact your negative brand of football fails to deliver results. Correct me if I`m wrong but football is a results business?

So for the good of Aston Villa please tender your resignation immediately before irreparable damage is done.

Yours

****

You might need to do one in braille because im not sure he can see whats going on on the pitch so he has no chance of reading a letter. UTV

Would it be considered an offence if everyone was to print this out, make a paper aeroplane out of it, and gently send it on it's way onto the pitch or the dug-out in the next home game?

we could get in Steve Bruce or Alan Curbishley would be a breath of fresh air, were are screwed all ways, i feel its over, everyone keeps forgetting or not mentioning just how poor the players are, and there is no getting away from the fact they are poor and have not performed anywhere near what they should have done, yes McLeish out but the players have to take responsibility for the mess we are in as well.

Yeah, stick it outside VP like Martin Luther and his edicts. Disagree that McLeish is the prime mover of all Villa's problems. Randy Lerner is the owner. His policy of 'forget-about-the-first-team-all-you-need-is-a-nice-pub-restaurant is deeply flawed. OK, that's a bit (quite a bit) harsh but I'm sure many of you see my point. Selling Milner - I now believe it was mainly Mr Lerners decision - now looks massive mistake. The team haven't been the same since. Houllier and McLeish were terrible appointments as many of us predicted. It isn't so much that they were appointed as the sense that all other options weren't exhausted first. I am still adament that their is a basic lack of knowledge and understanding about modern football among the upper echlons at VP.

avfcfazza - rofl! good point! :) YatesyVillan, another great idea lol. Only problem is that with fans turning away in their droves - who would be there to make the aeroplane? ;) Such a shame our club has been brought to its knees... i'd take an up-and-coming manager - maybe an ex-villan, because at least they would care! Mcleish does not care 1 jot about our plight - he just sits there thinking of his next ECKSCUSE.

No Eckscuses Andy. Were Eck's players not good enough at bloose to stay up but good enough to win the carling cup whilst beating us on the way?? Were his team in Scotland not good enough to finish second but could finish third?? NO MORE EXCUSES FOR THE INDEFENSIBLE
