McLeish Out Day Press Release

McLeish Out Day Press Release

Again, for clarity, this isn't opposed or supported by Vital Villa... we are simply communicating this press release:

************************

McLeish Out Day
Sunday 6th May

**PRESS RELEASE**

This statement is in direct reply to the Chairman and CEO`s statement of the 25/04/12

On the 6th of May 2012 - 'McLeish out Day` is a day dedicated to broadcasting the message, loud and clear, that the vast majority of Aston Villa supporters are extremely unhappy with the current situation at Villa Park.

This is more than a protest to remove McLeish.

It is an opportunity for all Villa fans to express their dismay at the ignorance of the Clubs owner and management and the apparent disregard of the concerns of the loyal supporters. There have been measures taken by Aston Villa Football Club to suffocate the ground swell of discontent, and we offer all Aston villa fans the opportunity to peacefully show their dismay at our Board and management.

McLeish Out Day is the culmination of a series of planned events, taking place around the ground, before, during and after the match, organised by a number of fan groups, that will leave the Club and the watching media in no doubt whatsoever that the fans have had enough and will take no more.

McLeish's position as Aston Villa Manager is now widely perceived as untenable. A concern that was voiced by many Villa supporters before his appointment was confirmed and throughout his disastrous tenure. We absolutely will not accept another season under his stewardship.

It is not about where he came from. It is where he is taking us.

Our worst home record in the History of Aston Villa Football Club.

On course for our worst points tally since the formation of the English Premier League.

Our lowest amount of wins in Villa's proud Premiership History.

Just one win in our last 14 games.

An alarming slump in matchday attendances.

The team will receive our full passionate and vocal support during the game as always.

Before this season is over, the fans will have the final say.

end.............

Talk about embarrassing! Who releases this rubbish ansd why do they think they talk on behalf of the fans. I want AMc gone, but a press release! Give me strength. We are not safe yet and this is counter-productive to the Villa cause.

Personally think the Holte has found its voice, at Bolton it was pretty clear. With that said, at least these guys are standing up for what they feel is right, people can choose whether to join in or not. I personally think it is shutting the gate after the horse has bolted, I can't see how McLeish could remain after these two games or indeed why he'd stay.

Not many alternatives if you ask me. What with Lerners' Gestapo attempting to quell the fans displeasure and disgust. The media seems to of been tapped up as they turn their backs upon true Villa supporters and stick to the Lerner Mafia Line. This is the True Villa Fans chance to respond and show their feelings. Of course back the team 100% during the match, but before and after..... it's our time!!!!........

Nowt to lose to be fair, the season has been woeful, the cost for fans is high, fans were patient and gave him a go, he hasn't done much apart from fail so fair play.

Fair play to Chris Hearn for actually trying to do something. Everything he has stated is true. Mcleish was and still is and abysmal appointment. He is deluded and a liar when it comes to defending his football. So nice guy but these aren't great qualities are they? His methods fail at this level, end of! The villa board have a long way to go to repair the damage of this disastrous appointment and frankly are very lucky its not culminated in relegation.

I dont get RoyalVilla what you are saying - "I want Alex Mcleish to go" then do something about it instead of sitting about picking negatives in everything.

Please, just hold fire until we're safe, there will be plenty of time to protest at the end of the season. I'm sure it's no coincidence that our away results are better than our home ones. These protesters will be the 12th man all right - for Tottenham. Everybody get behind the team - and yes, the manager - until we are safe. Then by all means vent your frustration.

We will all be 12th Man in the ground - do not worry about that. I believe we are safe now - on GD. But I will be in the ground roaring on the boys and involved in actions b4 and after game

Not sure this is the right time or place really. It’s clear he’s GOT to go, but I don’t think there should be any distractions for this of all games – we’ve got to be 100% behind the players and just ignore McLeish. If his terrible performance this season won’t get him the sack, then our protests won’t either. Lerner has made it clear he isn’t interested in what the fans have got to say, but a fragile team composed of young kids, up against a resurgent Spuds side who know they’re keeping their manager after all, will need every bit of encouragement we can give them.

We need City to need a win the last Day of the season, otherwise they just might be on early holiday. I would not like to have to need a win at Carrow Road. COTVABU
