This is neither an action of panic nor despair. It´s about one thing. Being
prepared. Prepared to say enough is enough, prepared to continue following
our beloved team 24/7 and prepared to roll up our sleeves and overturn Randy
Lerners irresponsible handling of the managerial situation. Fellow Villans, the
time has come to move forward.
Randy Lerners lack of a claret and blue heart has saturated important decisions
over the years and thus jeopardized the future of our beloved club. His failure
to compell O´Neill to play the first team in the Europa League led to numerous
supporters spending thousands and thousands of pounds following the club
abroad and erupted in Moscow where Villa die hards vocally demanded their
money back. His failure to understand that in order to succeed in modern
football you need to bring in the best players lead to O´Neill walking out of the
club only days before a new season was about to start. E.g.
With the reckless decision to offer the much wanted job as a Villa manager to
Alex McLeish Lerner has taken his irresponsibility to a new level. The decision
is impossible to defend whatsoever. McLeish. A manager with no trophies in
the cabinet. A manager with no experience from a top club. A manager with a
reputation for going down, going up and then down again. The decision can not
be defended from neither a financial nor a sporting point of view.
With his decision Lerner has disregarded our heritage and challenged all fans of
Aston Villa Football Club all over the world, and claret and blue common sense.
When it comes to claret and blue supporters every relationship apparently is not
a respected one.
We, the true supporters of Aston Villa, have three demands that are non-
negotiable and irrevocable.
First of all Alex McLeish must leave the club immediately.
Secondly Paul Faulkner must leave the club. As a chief executive he has the
utter responsibility for all silly comments made in association with the release of
derisive and ignorant club statements.
Thirdly Randy Lerner must put the club up for sale. As the owner of our beloved
club Lerner has in the past years clearly showed that he has neither the money
nor the knowledge to get Villa back among the best clubs in Europe. His lack of
leadership and financial strength is something that Cleveland Browns also suffers
from with being one of the few clubs in American football with no trophies.
You ask, what is our policy? We can say: It is to wage opposition with all our
claret and blue might and with united strength; to wage opposition against a
financial hoax, never surpassed in the vast, glorious history of Aston Villa
Football Club. That is our policy.
You ask, what is our aim? We can answer in one word: It is victory, victory at
all costs, victory in spite of all recklessness, victory, however long and hard the
road may be; for without victory, there is no survival for Aston Villa Football
At this time we feel entitled to claim the aid of all claret and blue hearts, and we
say, come then, let us go forward together with our united strength and throw
out the hypocrites.
Don´t ask what the club can do for you. Ask what you can do for the club.
