LMA play their usual game

The league managers association, have unsurprisingly came out on McLiesh's side. This is their job, they do it well but I would urge you to take a pinch of salt with what they say for Alex's departure.

'LMA chief executive Richard Bevan said there had been 'aggressive and seriously undermining communications' that had made McLeish's position untenable.'

Now, he`s referring to certain transfers, the sacking of the chief scout and probably the constant mist that we've found lingers around the boardroom. Not to mention the sheer bolshie attitude of Peter Pannu. Whatever happened to doing your job?

Things happen at my work that make me unhappy, but normally those things are the managers decision and essentially I'm paid to do my job.

Sometimes your boss makes your life more difficult, clearly Alex is one big child, not to mention he`s a miserable sob, maybe that`s where the negative tactics come from? I realise that`s a lot of opinion, feel free to comment I don`t mind, I'm a bitter blue nose.

Moving on .. As the LMA have quite a bit of clout, being realistic they are now going to apply pressure to the club. Don't be surprised to see McLeish put on gardening leave, meaning he can`t join a club much like QPR did to Ian Holloway a few seasons back, or a settlement reached to make this all go away for everyone.

It`s hard to call when there's a new revelation every day. Pannu may also be in trouble for breach of confidence, for telling us all about the termination clause McLeish has, again that's for a judge to decision what`s confidential and what isn't in the world of sport? I'm going to reference Ryan Giggs here, he`s a great example.

On a brighter note, I hear from several Facebook groups that the protest of vile support is going ahead at 6pm on Wednesday. Avoid it, it`s no place for a bluenose but sign their petitions and stuff just like we have shown Alex the love, it`s time to show him a certain hand gesture reserved for people who cut you up on the motorway.

Aww the Villa fans have turned their crayons onto the training ground facilities now.. "SOTC" & "Bluenose Scum Not Welcome" scribbled everywhere.. hope the cost to clean up and replace isnt coming out of our 5m compensation.

I am alone in thinking the board have treated AM badly, jobs safe only if we are going up, then hawking the better players around the league, removing trusted backroom staff without consultation. Sounds like setting up AM as a scape goat for the board to me.

I don't get it. Christians can become Buddhists, Russians can live in America, blacks can marry whites in South Africa. I've got a Jewish mate who is married to a Muslim. ...but a bloke can't manage two football teams from the same city.

nicely put Latchford59... having seen a 41 year old mate die today - AND good wishes sent through from Blues fans from the Alliance and former Rivals lot where we all used to 'play' it just puts life into perspective.
