The fans group behind Mcleish day (still on !!) have issued the following statement.
I find the move towards Randy Lerner an interesting development and possibly the correct one. As I just posted we will only not get relegated because of other’s incompetence, is that really good enough ? NO IS it time for Randy to show some us something and make POSITIVE moves.
On the 6th of May 2012 – ‘McLeish out Day’ is a day dedicated to broadcasting the message, loud and clear, that the vast majority of Aston Villa supporters are extremely unhappy with the current situation at Villa Park.
This is more than a protest to remove McLeish.
It is an opportunity for all Villa fans to express their dismay at the ignorance of the Clubs owner and management and the apparent disregard of the concerns of the loyal supporters. There have been measures taken by Aston Villa Football Club to suffocate the ground swell of discontent, and we offer all Aston villa fans the opportunity to peacefully show their dismay at our Board and management.
McLeish Out Day is the culmination of a series of planned events, taking place around the ground, before, during and after the match, organised by a number of fan groups, that will leave the Club and the watching media in no doubt whatsoever that the fans have had enough and will take no more.
McLeish’s position as Aston Villa Manager is now widely perceived as untenable. A concern that was voiced by many Villa supporters before his appointment was confirmed and throughout his disastrous tenure. We absolutely will not accept another season under his stewardship.
It is not about where he came from. It is where he is taking us.
Our worst home record in the History of Aston Villa Football Club.
On course for our worst points tally since the formation of the English Premier League.
Our lowest amount of wins in Villa’s proud Premiership History.
Just one win in our last 14 games.
An alarming slump in matchday attendances.
The team will receive our full passionate and vocal support during the game as always.
Before this season is over, the fans will have the final say.
