Right, He's Going To Villa. Lets Forget Him Now

Right, He's Going To Villa. Lets Forget Him Now

Well I must admit that when all this lot started about McLeish, I did not believe for one minute that Villa would really sign the ginger haired one, but now it`s just a matter of when they make the move official.

I think it`s safe to say that most Blues fans wish Villa and McLeish the same fate that Blues suffered last season for a second time under McLeish. Let`s face it, things were not good. Boring football, no goals, strange formations and starting line ups. But hey, we won a Carling Cup and oh how I would like to shove that where it would hurt McLeish without KY.

Personally, I don`t care that he is going to Villa, but I fall short of finding it funny because these things tend to come back and bite you on the bum, can you imagine if he finished the season with Villa in the dizzy heights of the top half of the table? Villa fans would be dancing in the streets, and telling us how they knew he would come good all along.

I`m more pee`d off at the way he disrespected the club who stuck by him by sending in an email, and yes I know there is the theory that McLeish was forced into going by the club and all this has been twisted to make him look the bad man, but I`m not having that.

My advice to Villa fans, for what it`s worth, would be to stop the protests and get on with giving the man support and that is the same advice that I would be giving Blues fans should the situation have been reversed. My advice to Bluenoses is now forget about McLeish, wash our hands of him and forget he was ever here, until we play Villa again.

And that day would be here sooner rather than later if the right man is appointed to the Blues hot seat. Personally I prefer that man to be Chris Hughton who I believe would be a man in his element if he came to St Andrews and that can only lead to him performing his best with our great support behind him.

That`s it, I won`t mention him again

I'm a Villa fan, and I agree with you. Biggest problem of most Villa and Blues fans is that they moan like it's going out of fashion. It pi$$es me right off. Situation is what it is - let's all just deal with it. You won a trophy last year so considering your history you should revere the man. Our board have decided he is the right man for the job, and if he wants it, they we should back them both. End of.

Likewise as a Villa fan the moaning is doing my head in. We all know that when it comes to the football field we hate each other and wish each other the worse luck! But I am happy to go to work with and be friends with Blues fans the next day, because at the end of the day, football for me is about entertainment. The tribal element, is dated now, and although its fun sometimes, it doesnt warrant the sort of vitriol and abuse that has come from some fans this week!

Good article, but what if he brings Foster, Dann and Johnson with him? The ***** hasn't even got near the fan yet!

I think this is the first time in a long long time that both Villa and Blues fans are united in distaste. You ********s better get promoted first try so we can pay you back for the cup tie the following season ;)

He could well take Foster, I think he will in fact. But thats because Foster wants to go and that would be the best move for him. You wont get in the England team from the Championship.

i expect Mcfadden to go also and the entire Mcleish backroom staff and others. I don't think Fahey is good enough either and hasn't been since day one. Murphy will also leave i think. I also expect Gardner, Zigic, Johnson, Possibly Dann and Foster to also go. This is the problem with getting relegated and also affects any potential manager who would want to know before coming here who is potentially to leave.

Cheers for the genuine article. This whole thing leaves a sour taste, but we have to just get behind the Villa boss. Also, on the point about Foster, he might join Villa with a view to playing for England, but as we've seen so often, he'll be off shortly after that. Anyway. UTV

I would take Foster and Dann if we end up with Mcleish - but please no more!

Still can't believe it, it's mad. What a reception he'll get at St Andrews when you get back up. There again, it probably won't happen because we'll go down at the same time. Good luck guys.
