'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Press Are Wrong re: McLeish - It Isn't Just Us!

ITS NOT JUST US!!!!

Abysmal season just to start off, as I'm sure everyone agrees.

McLeish has to go and is the worst excuse for a manager. My CV on football manager is better than his, might put myself up for the job and see if i can do any better (anyone could). The reason for this article is basically to put it out their why we are not the only fans who think Mclueless is rubbish!

The following video, despite it being from a BIRMINGHAM CITY FAN, shows that we aren't the only fans who think this idiot is awful at managing a football club.

Check out time; 5:00 mins onwards {strong language, not suitable for work or in front of kids}





Just goes to show that even the blue noses's didn't like their manager when he was there. For any media reading this such as the BBC, Skyports, any newspaper with close minded journalists, and even more specifically MOTD pundit ALAN SHEARER (who I did have respect for but not anymore due his comments on Villa fans), WATCH this video.

You may reconsider the fact that we hate McLeish because of his football tactics, not his past.

At first I thought give McLeish a go, new beginnings and all that. But when it got to mid February the continuous negative football, stupid team selections, pathetic post match interviews (where he would use the most cringe-worthy similes to describe the match) and the obvious decline in the table, made me think enough is enough. Yes we may of lost some key players #pray4stan, and had to use majority of our youth players with minimal experience, but the fact that we were still mid table (before xmas) at best with a fully fit squad suggests McLeish couldn't even operate our 'best' starting 11.

With us now losing our best defender (notice how I didn't say CB, as King Carlos can play anywhere in the back 4), I fear things may only get worse, and if he continues being our manager I don't look forward to another 10 months of hell.

UTV MCLEISH OUT (for the last time, cause I'm sick of saying it)

And on the Shearer comments I`ve also had this submitted:

I don't post very often but I found myself shouting at the TV Sunday night....Shearer again spouting the rubbish that Villa fans are against McLeish because he came from Birmingham City. Perhaps he should read this article written before the season started by a wee Scotsman. Worrying thing (though no surprise) is his forecast at the end of the article... www.://odetotheweeredbook.blogspot.co.uk

If you're a journo it's so easy to say, 'The Villa fans don't like him because he came from St Andrews.' So that's what they do. A bit more difficult for them to get off their backsides and do a little research. This is why you should NEVER believe anything you read in a newspaper or see on TV.

Shearer is a nob. Got a picture of me doing the V signal behind his back whilst he was posing for pictures one at a time. He's glaring at me as his just wife grassed me up. He was proper sulking afterwards.

AMEN chocolateteapot well said m8. By the way why did have i just watched the first video above and watched the small heath athletic chavs singing nasty things about Gabby's mom and all there songs the Chavs sing about us for? I mean is there a purpose for me to watch a video of Benefit Cheating Chavs from small heath singing abuse about my club?
clivethevillan
lol v signing Shearer, fantastic lol :-)
Metalvillan
I watched the first 30 seconds and could not stomach any more. The main point though as we all know, is Idiot is as much use as an ejector seat on a helicopter!

The evidence of McLeish's incompetence is staring everyone in the face. The table doesn't lie. Even if we did hate him because of his previous club (personally I don't give them a second thought) it doesn't take away the fact that we are an awful football team. It is said that Football is a results game, in which case he has failed miserably.

And shearer is a terrible, terrible pundit. Tape motd so I can forward passed him.
General Disarray
First video has Blooze fans telling McLeish to **** off.

i think its time we all just loved him and welcome him as he will be here next season :)))

bet he won't andy...!
The Fear
Just complained to the BBC about what Shearer said. Let's hope I get a worthy reply!

Dont forget folks we were the team that beat Newcastle when Shearer was manager to invoke their relegation. I put it that way because no club really puts another down it happens over a season. But having seen Shearer celebrating on motd the day Newcastle beat us 6-0 I noted then that he had a dislike for us.One shared by Lineker who we upset when we nicked Brian Little from his beloved Leicester City .

As sais above - the table doesn't lie, and there's plenty of evidence (that isnt from some random video) that mcleish is just a pants 'manager'. Look at all the villa records he's broken this season - fewest EVER home wins in 138 year history, fewest EVER points total in premier league (even if we win on sat), longest EVER premier league home winless streak (he also achieved that with rangers - see the pattern?), fewest EVER premier league goals (think 42 was our previous lowest), ZERO goals from set pieces this season!!! He's useless - end of. Get rid NOW.
