Surely He Must Go?

Surely He Must Go?

By Matthew Lingard

Surly now....After another humiliating and disgraceful performance against Doncaster, David O'Leary must go.

It was a performance that lacked spirit, fight and any idea of how to open up a team that was leagues below us in both club and team status and to me that has summed up O'Leary's reign since he joined us.

Even in yesterdays (Wednesday 30 November) Birmingham Mail, the paper is now finally realising that it has a responsibility to the city's greatest club and had an editorial siding with the view that Ellis and O'Leary have to go.

Ellis must make sure that the takeover goes through smoothly and quickly to finally give Aston Villa a new lease of life and hopefully the drive and ambition needed to take Aston Villa back to the top of English
football where we belong.

O'Leary must also stand up and take responsibility and resign. If not, he should be sacked regardless of how much money is involved as he is taking the club nowhere, and in doing that he is also belittling our club
publically and our supporters. Today in www.avfc.co.uk in response to our outcry that O'Leary is not up to the job his response was 'Il take no account of it. Il take notice of people who know sport'.

Not only has he produced a team full of players who don't care and are one trick pony who if that plan fails we resort to launching the ball fowrard like a scottish
lower league team, he is now suggesting that Villa fans dont 'know sport'.

I have had enough of his and his bosses pompous know it all approach in the face of mediocrity. ELLIS AND O'LEARY OUT!!!
