The Fight Goes On

The Fight Goes On

After leaving Rangers in third position in Scotland and Small Heath in the Championship and facing administration, Mr McLeish is still talking up his job at the Villa despite the fact that we all know he is being shown out of the door next week.

His current bluster is simply his way of trying to secure his pay off instead of doing the honorable thing and walking. He has shown his complete disregard for the fans with this stance. He is spoiling for a fight with all Villa Fans, so lets ensure he has one.

So although we know there is likely to be the biggest fall off in Season Cards in our history (for the record, Villa's research has indicated only 4000 renewals if McMuppet stays) we must make our voice heard again at Norwich. We are safe. No need to worry about the bleeding heart liberals who say please support the team during the game and do the protests after. At Norwich the fans that go watch Villa home and away have a chance to spend 90 minutes giving McLeish as much stick as possible. It will not affect the club.

It will not relegate us. It is not going to prevent us finishing higher up the table. But we need to make our voice heard louder than it has before. So take your banners, lubricate the larynx and be as vociferous as possible to ensure that the Randolph knows exactly what he needs to do as soon as the game is finished next week.

The 19th Minute. UTV Prepared!

hopefully the last protest article we need for a good long while. Personally I think he's gone and that we should enjoy the final day. Bit harsh blaming him for Blues in receivership there! LOL Their owner isn't the best to be fair !

Not sure Randy needs any more reminders of the fans' feelings towards McLeish. If he doesn't realise that he has to go by now, I don't see how another protest will help.

I wholeheartedly agree with VOTH. I've said it on another thread, but as VOTH says, this is the last chance to ensure Idiot is given a send off he'll remember. We are safe, so lets give it 100% so he and the board are in no doubt. I'm wondering how you can enjoy yourselves JF when that Idiot is still managing a Villa team..... with all the suffering we've endured with that turd......

Tend to agree Nimmo. Think McLeish has been so low key last two games that despite his comments, he knows what is needed.

I'll be glad when he's gone, but slagging McLeish off for 90 mins is a pretty lame way to spend the last game of the season. And let's have less of the selective use of stats: he's won the League Cup and made the last 16 of the Champions League in recent times, which is more than we've managed. There's more to life than abusing other people.

fear knows something.

Just a thought..... a lot of people seem to favour Lambert for our next manager, I'm sure the sight/sound of the away following slagging the current manager for 90 mins will really help to sell the club to him...... anyway Eck is going so ignore him and get behind the lads and give Carlos the send off he deserves.

there is no way he will go, he will be here next season i am sure, of course i hope not but i cannot see RL sacking him
10/05/2012 17:23:00
90 minutes of abusing Mcleish will only make the club and us, its fans, look bad and give the london media an excuse to ridicule us again whilst putting off potential managers and players. It will not influence Randy's decisions one bit, does anyone know if he will even be there? Falling season ticket sales coupled with letter / emails to the club explaining what needs to change to drive renewals is about the only way things will happen. If Fear is right, then it has already had its effect, if not then here's hoping

Everyone is fully aware of McLeish's track record but the "3rd in a 2-horse race" argument is void for me, as I've said many times before. Rangers finished 3rd behind Hearts, who beat them by 1 point and were 18 points ahead of Hibs in 4th. Hearts had an amazing season!!!!! Don't take that away from them by slagging off McLeish!!!!
