So, You Attending Now 'He's' Gone?

So, You Attending Now 'He's' Gone?

A simple enough poll I think!

I asked with reference to whether you are attending, were going to anyway etc.

Season ticket/attending?
Poll Date: 20 May 2012
Suggested By: JP Fear

Have to be honest, I`m still totally baffled as to the majority on this poll!

Still waiting to see who the manager is 59%

I always thought we supported AVFC. I could sort of understand those choosing to turn their nose up at the last appointment but...................... well, still? Really?

And the other results:

I was getting a season ticket anyway 21%
I wasn't but now will get season ticket 8%
I wasn't but will now attend 8%
I was attending anyway 4%

Why would we come back now he's gone? I see no reason to spend such a massive amount of money on Villa right now. Look at the squad, looks at how we play, look at the board and listen to the atmosphere. Villa Park is not a fun place to be anymore and causes more trouble than good. I too am waiting to find out who we sign as manager, but right now, with this situation, I wouldn't renew at half price. These last two years have been a complete waste of money, I see no reason to give Randy Lerner (who hasn't got a clue how to make Villa successful again) anymore money, until he gives me a reason to spend it. Yes I'm a fan of the club, but so much of my love for Villa died last season, I wouldn't be too fussed if I didn't renew.

With all the deals & discounted tickets last season, punters can pick & choose. No sellouts to worry about either. Unless you have an emotional attachment to your seat then it just isn't necessary anymore & I can't see that changing whoever the new gaffer is.

Well I suppose those who do not invest any of their own money in their club will hoping somebody will invest millions of theirs. If you are not prepared to put your money into the club, don't complain if things aren't going to plan on the pitch. Leave the supporting/complaining to those who are prepared to invest time and effort and money in supporting the club. I am sure potential new managers are really attraced by comments such as 'I wouldnt renew at half the price ' or 'unless you have the emotional attachment to your seat'. Good to see the positivity around to help sell the club and attract a new manager. Who in their right mind would want to manage a club of half arsed supporters?

I think that poll and voiceoftheholte comments sums up why we arnt a big club anymore...

When Houllier was appointed I agonised long and hard before renewing my ST.

When McLeish was appointed I agonised longer and harder.

Randy, being an American, will understand the phrase, Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.' I have already been fooled twice. I am not going to be fooled a third time.

to be honest, I dont believe this poll, otherwise it really makes you as fans terribly fickle. I thought you were supporters, who loved the club regardless of success or failure, but if this is a true reflection, I think it is quite damning in stating that you are with the team in fair times, but are willing to walk away when things done go well.
26/05/2012 17:24:00
I guess we just don't have the supporters we should have! My support does not depend on who is in charge or who is on the pitch, I don't understand that type of thinking, you either support your team or you don't, if you don't, fine, but stop having a pop at the real supporters, your negativity is not needed.
26/05/2012 17:26:00
I wholeheartedly agree with chocolate teapots' sentiments. I've been a season ticket holder for in excess of 25 years and last season hurt! I can't help feeling cynical about the timing of the sacking on top of the unprecedented phone lobbying by the ticket office to season ticket holders this year. Season ticket sales or lack of, has (in my opinion) made Randy and Paul realise that something had to be done about Alex sooner rather that later. Let's hope the next appointment is made with the idea of regaining season ticket holders confidence in the direction of the club.

We have our wish. The next appointment surelycan't be as bad..... can it? If I was in the UK, I'd be going down VP again.

Supporting is one thing BUT continuing to support and in a way praising the actions of those who make decisions ( when they have NO regard for the fans) is detrimental. They need to give us something to support first. Fair play to those that support regardless, they're the lifeblood of the club but for those that find it a tight squeeze ( most ) then they've got to know that they're getting value for money. How do people know that the next man will be better?? It couldn't be much worse but after the potential publicity stunt of chasing OGS, most are still wary just incase.
