A View From A Young Villan

A View From A Young Villan

I am a 17 year old from Worcester, UK, taking Advanced Construction level 3 at college, first year. But in my own time, I like writing book ideas. So, why am I saying this? Because I want to publish my first ever article. I have attempted to write a few whilst I was about 14, but obviously my grammar, punctuation and vocabulary wasn't as good. So, again, my first article. At nearly 1AM, wide awake, I found myself wondering what to do to pass time until I feel tired. So I went on iTunes, put a comedy podcast on and searched in the Google search bar 'Alex McLeish' to read the latest articles, looking for recent news hoping to see the headline 'McLeish sacked'.

The first article, published by Neil Moxley from The Daily Mail Online, titled 'Down and you're out: McLeish has three basement battles to save his job at Villa'.

The second less attractive article, again by The Daily Mail Online, that caught my eye is titled 'I won't quit! McLeish vows to fight on after Villa are dragged into relegation dogfight' wrote by a sportsmail reporter.

So far I haven't written much of this article, just gave information. Well, links. Like many of our fans, I would happily push this cracked nut off a cliff for how poorly he is managing our great and historic club. And I also do see the chuckle brothers (Randy and Faulkner) as half the blame for this mistake, along the Martin O`Neill spending spree. But overall, what do the club truly need?

Just a new manager? A new owner? A fresh start by getting rid of them all? Or pulling a Newcastle by going down?

n my opinion, I thing the Newcastle option is best. Sack McLeish, Put big Kev in charge and let him get experience, as well as the youngsters, in the Championship and pumping for a premiership return with blood thirsty youngsters and a well equipped Kevin McDonald. We are broke, unless we sell which we all know won't happen, and we have to work with youngsters. My idea is having a great, ready squad full of youngsters who resemble great players with a man who understands them. These are Gary Gardner, Marc Albrighton, Andres Weinmann, Eric Lichaj, Chris Baker, Ciaran Clark. We also have in the mix plenty of experienced players who can turn the wheel and pass off a few tricks.

Thank you for reading, I would very much appreciate feedback on the article and my idea. And feel free to express yourselves on anything Villa related!

Cheers for the article submission. I'd disagree with the 'we are broke' and also, think relegation is the very worst thing that could happen to us. Also, Kev Mac had his chance and kept saying he didn't know if he wanted it (don't blame him, as he said, the attention is 24/7) so .... !

First off - very well written and balanced article mate - appreciated! Second off - got to disagree with yout Fear. Under KMAC we had 2 dissapointing results - 1 against newcastle where he went on record and said "I'm sorry, i got it wrong, it was my fault" - something the current incumbent has never had the bottle to do. Secondly, he only had like 4 games - 2 of which we won!! We're fickle fans, but surely we shouldn't judge KMAC on 2 bad games?? He's been brilliant with the youth, and imho deserves at least half a season?

you're not really disagreeing with me, you are disagreeing with Kev Mac. He kept saying he didn't know if he wanted the job. If you went to an interview saying that would you get it? If he'd wanted the job and banged their door down to demand it, the job was his.

Sorry, just re-read your comment, and i suppose you're coming at it from the "He wasnt sure he wanted the job" angle.. ;) Best thing to do is sack mcloser and ask him again =)

Agree Fear,relegation is not an option,there is still a half descent team just needing a manager to manage and tweak them,a few players in and hay presto we should be top 6- to 10th next year,**** managers produce **** football.

Yep, decent article but have to agree with JF, relegation is just what we don't need. We're not guarenteed to come back up..... Though I do agree with Kevin Mac for the last 3 matches on a caretaker role, that sadly that won't happen as Idiot won't go.... not until he's finished the job......

I agree with you mate but the only thing that worries me is the financial side... and i think we'd have trouble getting rid of some of our players because of high wages etc...

I think for now the best thing we can do is just hope to goodness we dont go down, and then sack him the day the season finishes.

Relegation is not an option, we would then get an villa firesale and it would set us back years. Newcastle are the exception of what happens to a club that goes down, to get a more balanced reflection on what happens when you go down look at forest,Southampton , charlton, Portsmouth,two Sheffield clubs etc etc
