Aston Villa Message Board
i have been an avid (family noses say rabid) follower of this THE GREATEST FOOTBALL CLUB IN THE WORLD, since the mid 60´s, attended my first match in 1967 aged 9, (parents thought that i was riding around kings norton on my push bike), i have suffered the gloom i have witnessed the glory, for many the essence of ASTON VILLA is jimmy rimmer raising his hand in rotterdam and a young almost unheard of nigel spink standing from the bench to prepare for his finest hour. old barstewards like me remember bournmouth in the 3rd division with memories that are as finely tuned as that night in rotterdam, our finest hour, well we all have our own, but if what i am reading this morning about the stand of many of our 25 man squad is to be believed, then our club now faces its most desperate hour. i am no lover of those who would blackmail or so called men who earn a decades wages for some, in a week threatening to withdraw thier labour, but thier is a problem here, it is major and it seems to be coming from "the boss" and that scottish pussy at his side.
what the hell is going on, we all have work proceedures but there are ways and means of introducing them, do we have some kind of dictator running the club, is there no consultation process, who in this day and age (apart from the fcuking prime minister) thinks that they can simply introduce these draconian measures without consequence?. can no one at the club see that we are in trouble, and that without a united (no not that lot, (god i wish) ) workforce we will become victims of our inability to perform as a unit. we MR HOULLIER,are ASTON VILLA, you are just another money grabbing jobs worth, no creativity, no vision NO FCUKING HOPE, it is time to do the dignified thing, GO, RESIGN, pi55 off back from whence you came and give us a chance of survival.
MR LERNER, i do not care if you once watched villa while studying at uni, IF you are as you claim ASTON VILLA IN YOUR HEART, then you will know that i am right and will push him if he will not walk, if you are other than what you claim then it is also time for you to go.
THIS IS THE CLUB THAT DOUG BUILT, DEBT FREE AT POINT OF SALE, we are now up to our arses in it, THIS SIRS IS ASTON VILLA and if it isnot to your liking i for 1 mr houllier will show the 2 fingers to you that our english archers showed to your forefathers,
PUT THIS RIGHT GENTLEMEN OR BEWARE OF THE DOOR HITTING YOUR ARSES ON THE WAY OUT.
ASTON VILLA FOOTBALL CLUB, ´til i die.
Mike - there's no point in calling for Houllier to be sacked now. It's too late. He should have been sacked at Christmas.
What is upsetting is that this moron has given up trying to understand the players and the fans and has resorted to being a pathetic little Napoleon.
We all know MoN was a hard manager who demanded everything from his players and mostly they gave their all, sometimes a bit more. To do that he had to gain their respect.
Houllier hasn't gained anyone's respect. Certainly not the players or us fans. Only very recently did he start to talk about relegation (instead of about Man City and Liverpool), and now, all of a sudden he's noticed that we are in deep sh1. So he's blaming the players, and he's doing it as if he's threatening to take sweets from little kids. That is so pathetic that the board should have chucked him out immediately.
If by some miracle (which won't come from Houllier), we manage to stay up, I think Houllier should be shamed by the fans and players into resigning.
