Oh I love it when Ellis speaks, it is fantastic, like in the good old days every pronouncement is utter rubbish.
The Evening Mail finally pulled out the Villa in Crisis issue and they have headlined it with
Of course they refuse to have a go at Mcleish like they have all season. they have issued the boring and bland club line of
‘get behind the team’
It is almost what the club said last night, make your own conclusions.
However Ellis pops up. It has never failed to amuse me why anyone thinks he adds anything to the debate. Ever since I have known of him 30 years ago his words were utter rubbish. He has surppased himself this time by backing Mcleish. Like in the old days always against the vast majority of the ‘man on the terraces’. However when he says
‘Villa will finish in the top 6 next season’
He must mean the Championship surely ?
Is he expecting us to get relegated then and still keep Mcleish ?
Or if he actually meant the PL then it confirms what we all knew about him over the years, out of touch.
If this is the best the club can rustle up to stop protests it is shameful. They tried to stop freedom of speech and now use emotional blackmail through the old and tired get behind your club.
Old Ellisan tricks, the Padawan has learnt well.
