There is a protest scheduled Saturday at Villa Park.
From what ive read, this seems to be an issue that has divided Villa fans. I was just curious to what everyones views were on this as well as the controversy around McLeish (will he or wont he take the England job, he is basically a shoo-in).
Undoubtedly, this is a tough issue for our club. From a fan's point of view, it seems like the executive portion of the club has taken a turn for the worse. Obviously non-sir Alex wasnt going to be a popular choice, neither was selling our past three players of the year and letting other key squad players leave on bosmans, but mistakes have been made. At this time in the season, it would be difficult to replace the manager, and might not be smart either, as Villa have been playing better ball in recent weeks. Not always receiving a better result, but it looks better. The club clearly is in a transitional period after a few years of financial splurging and yes the wage bill has to be cut, but moving forward we have a lot of bright, young talent and as the nextgen series shows, a top academy that can compete with any in Europe. I just cannot believe that McLeish can be the manager for the future of Aston Villa with where i see the clubs potential, but i guess i am not the chairman either.
sorry for the rant, feel free to comment on that or on the subject of the protest (what this post was supposed to be about)
