The Pride Of Villa Lions

The Pride Of Villa Lions

Shane Villains says:

The McLeish Gamble has been a Failure the club Now Needs to Act and Do the Right Thing
This is no longer about whose wrong or right between us sections of fans and the hierarchy. These are dire times the worst in our club history in the EPL.

Our EPL Status is seriously under threat and the club Custodians need to act NOW. A change has to come and needs to be made for the good of the club. A change will lift the whole Club to unite us fans and players alike. If Faulkner and Lerner chose to ignore our current dilemma with wishful thinking in McLeish`s abilities to turn it around then they need to do their research on his EPL record for a quick reminder, otherwise we on route to pay the ultimate price.

The proof`s in the pudding, the gamble has been a disaster and should not be allowed to rumble on any longer. The facts do not lie; McLeish has never kept a club up at this stage in this position we lie in now. Give Villans back their pride and we will roar like the proud lions we are for our team. All villans will unite behind the team with McLeish`s departure. If our beloved absent owner does not act then the consequences are dire in deed. I will repeat these facts NO McLeish`s team has stayed up at this stage in the season in the dire position we now lie in. If our Hierarchy persist down this path of blind faith in this inept manager then it will only exit one way; the championship for the first time in our EPL history.

McLeish`s excuses cannot be allowed to dribble on; it`s those same excuses he used to drag Birmingham City down last season now the same excuses his using now to drag us down.

Sir Alex Ferguson has got his easy 6 points from us this season job done, if he thinks so highly of him why did he not hire him as his No.2? Even better why does he not retire now and recommend 'McLueless` as his successor at Manure?

Was the bright future that was promised a one way ticket to the championship in debt?
If the Custodians fail Villa by blindly refusing to act then it`s up to every true passionate Villan out there to join and unite to force the change for the good of the club, act before its too late. Let`s not let our great and beloved club be degraded and dragged down to McLeish`s level in the championship. If we do not act who protects Villa when the Custodians have failed her where`s that roar and Pride of the Lions of Villa DO NOT RENEW SEASON TICKETS FOR THE SAKE OF VILLA;

"The Villa is Ours, The Villa is Ours, The Villa is Ours, The Villa is ours
The Villa is Ours, The Villa is Ours, The Villa is Ours, Up The Villa"


Let The Lions Roar Give Them Back Their Pride, Give Them Back Their Club unleash the McLeish with a P45 the Villa is ours.

Now over to you custodians what will it be Paul Faulkner and Randy Lerner wherever he may be.

I've renewed, sorry, I always will. I get what people are saying but not for me, didn't over DOug, won't over a manager who will go one day! Heartfelt etc but just not walking away, especially not giving up my great seats!

They will be 'great seats' watching Leicester and Nottingham Forest next season if McLeish's tactics and defensive approach win through. At least the away trips wont be too far eh??? It was only a boycott of season tickets that finally forced Doug to get rid of O'Deary (sic). They have even got Agbonlahor at it now, pleading for people to renew next year. I wonder if this was of his own volition or on club orders??? PR wise this current mob haven't a clue how to run a football club. The OS is a joke. Hardly any mention of the dismal performances, lack of invention or fight. No. Just short articles about how we were beaten by superior teams and plenty of adverts for discounted ticket deals. The attendance for the Stoke game summed it up. Don't they understand why people are staying away? At least Doug used to tell a few fibs about summer transfers (Klinsmann anyone???) to drum up business. As long as people will pay to watch any old rubbish while the club they grew up loving crumbles before them, all the while being simultaneously disregarded and ignored by the board, this *expletive deleted* will remain in charge.

I will be a season ticket holder next year as will the Wife. I would love to be entertained whilst supporting my club and I pray for them to be better and get back to where I believe.However, I am not purchasing a product. I am investing money in the football club I adore and in doing so supporting them. 100 Big Eck's will not change this for me. I am there good times and bad because that's what it is to be a fan - fanatic- of a football club. Only lack of funds and ill health would keep me away and when they have done it was a great loss to not sit and stand in the Holte End.

Am undecided what to do. I think that the greatest damage can be done from within, but fully support every fan who is going to vote with their feet. I am actually enjoying protesting about him. So much so that I am taking my protest to Bodymoor Heath tomorrow. UTV . McMuppet Out.

However, once the football has stopped the protests will begin as far as I am concerned. Protest season. At the moment I am completely behind the team and that's where all my energy and support is going. No time for negativity with 5 games to go.

I can fully understand those who are renewing season tickets. And financially it is cheaper to renew before the deadline. But surely NOT renewing- registering your protest about the way the club is being run, potentially forcing them to remove McLeish from the helm - then purchasing a ticket once the new manager is appointed is a better way to go? It would cost more as a fan to do this, but wouldn't this put more money in to the club for the new manager to be able to use?

voth - it would be possible to do greater damage from within IF the stewards didn't refuse entry to those people with anti-Mcleish (not anti-Villa) banners.

Fear - Can totally understand you comments, and there is part of me that wants to replicate your action but after 22 years of holding a season ticket - An event which jointly made with my brother/cousins and uncle, we will not be renewing this summer. What the club did last summer was slap their supporters in the face and say that we basically dont care what you think and presented us with a provern failure. I have tried to defend and give him time but cant no more - its clueless, boring as predicted football with shocking results to join it. My only worry is that we will probbally end up with Terry Connor if Mcleish does leave as that would some up Lerner & Faulkners football knowlege. Mcleish Out!!!. Martinez with 20 million and the current squad inc young players coming through would not have been hanging on like this - The job he has done with the resources avalible is amazing

heavy d. Where there is a will there is a way. My banner will be there again on Saturday and as before will not appear until the game is beyond us. It will not be displayed whilst there is a chance of getting points on the board. No Support Prevention Officer (steward) will stop me getting it into VP again.

I'll be back, no I'm not happy and will look for improvement - will also look forward to seeing some of the younger lions push onwards & will give McLeish until Xmas to show the spirit we need.
