Phone Call with #avfc
After sending an email to Paul Faulkner on Friday, I received a phone call from Nicky Keye. First thing it is nice to know that Paul, couldn’t be bothered to deal with me directly.
My email pointed out McLeish’s awful record at Villa, the awful football we are playing and the disatisfaction of the fans with the direction the club is taking under him.
Apparently the club has a vision (wasn’t told what it was though) and that nobody is happy with the current position, but everybody is working hard to rectify it. Didn’t say how though!
I asked them what possessed them to appoint a manager with a proven track record of failure in the Premier League and then to persist with him while he is continuing to fail, again no real answer.
I also pointed out that our squad should be performing a lot better than its current position and apparently that is a view that is shared by all at the club.
I then asked if the club was aware of the large number of fans that will not be renewing if McLeish remains in charge and she said the club are aware of this. She then asked if I would be renewing and I said
“Not a chance why he remains as manager, and neither will any of my family or friends that I go with”
She said ST details will be out in the post soon, so I replied “I will be sending the pack back with another letter explaining AGAIN why I will not pay again to watch Aston Villa under McLeish”
In summary I appreciated the fact she called and she seemed a nice woman, but on the whole it was a waste of time.
I have come to the conclusion that Alex McLeish is more important to the owner and CEO of Aston Villa than any of the fans and for that reason, they can bollocks for all I care now.
LERNER, FAULKNER & McLEISH OUT!
