clbick3: Well, the season is well under way now and for Villa fans, the results are not quite what we had hoped for. 5 points from a possible 21 has taken a toll on the morale of many Villans and the feel good factor that was so refreshing before the season has begun to wither away with each game. Naturally, many fans are looking for someone to blame. Many blame the McLeish effect and claim his negative influence is still stubbornly present within the squad and it's only a matter of time.

clbick3: As an English football and Villa fan living in America, I have the unfortunate task of having to tolerate a seemingly infinite amount of glory-hunting, FIFA obsessed, woefully ignorant, European soccer fans. When these Ronaldo-worshipping trolls learn of my passion for AVFC, they are simply overwhelmed at the thought that I would support a team like Villa who are sinfully guilty of not spending 10`s of millions per transfer window on overhyped ego-maniacs who they can watch on youtube every week and buy their jersey and feel like individuals because they like soccer.
