If you remember a few weeks ago there was a a report that at £2M per year Alex Mcleish was the 20th highest paid manger in EUROPE.
Of course to a lot of us this is simply obscene money for him and way way over the top for a mediocre manager that Mcleish is. When you look at the official PREMIER LEAGUE STATS for his record it is simply a shocking one.

Some may excuse him by saying he has only managed Blues, but that is no excuse. Other managers have had equally limited resources but at the size of club of Villa this is simply not good enough for us. OK in some ways I am very bored of typing this, maybe you are very bored of reading this but the message has to get through to Randy Lerner.
When Lerner came to the club he claimed to be the custodian of the club and not the mere owner. If this is the case then us as fans, the lifeblood of the club are speaking in one clear voice what they want. Stop the spin, stop the defence of Mcleish, manager so in awe of Man U he made us sound like a small little club. Lerner just get on, pay the money and get rid of Mcleish then employ someone to find that young manager who can work with the youth and bring the very best out of them.
