Doug Wades In Over McLeish - Might Surprise A Few!

Doug Wades In Over McLeish - Might Surprise A Few!

Allow me a moment of silliness fellow Villans!

I`ve had Doug Ellis thrown back in my face a few times this season due to my 'role` in anti Doug protests etc.

The old Doug arguments are passed us now but so many have said to me that Doug would have sacked McLeish by now and at least he got us (ie got the fans)

Did he?

Doug Ellis today said:

'It would be foolish for McLeish to go. Despite the fact most of the fans are upset he came from Birmingham, McLeish is a good manager."

So, our 'good` manager has the worst home record ever.

And all our hard work informing press that the dislike of Alex McLeish undone by the former Chairman.

Cheers Doug!

So maybe next time I`m on the road following Villa, or trying to 'enjoy` the torture at Villa Park, you could refrain from the bile and foaming mouth crap about Doug. He`s gone, he had to go, he is now an irrelevance. The current situation is far more pressing.

End of silly mode!

are we really taking this at face value? It is part of a concerted pr campaign since the bolton game, along with tthe statement and sending out a few players to take the heat off the useless *****.

It's good to see ol' Dougie hasn't lost his sense of humour! "McLeish is a good manager" hahahaha classic!

In fairness I don't think, given his club role, he would turn around and say, "I woods have sacked him by now, in fact I never would have hired him". He b also seems to be going along with the belief that most fans are upset about where he come from, not his inability to do the job. The media think it, abd I honestly think Lerner and Faulkner think it. It's unspeakably insulting.

No surprise, Doug has no idea or cares what Villa fans think or feel. He was exactly the same during his tenure as Chairman. It will always be the Witton Lane Stand.
