When Enough is Enough
I am a 61-year-old Villa supporter and have been going to Villa Park for over 50 years and have been a season ticket holder for over 40 years along with my 29-year-old son who has had a season ticket since he was six-years-old.
‘For the first time in my life I am totally embarrassed by my club and feel totally let down to the point where I’ve had enough’
I have seen all the ups and downs of Aston Villa, from the darkest days in the 3rd Division to travelling through Europe to watch us win the European cup.
In all those dark times there was always hope and a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.
Going to Villa Park has been my life for 50 years and my sons for the last 23 years, I have missed the odd game through illnesses etc, but just the odd game. For the first time, I can’t even remember if there has been a time where I simply didn’t want to go, until recently, that was the Wycombe game and then the Manchester City game.
Over the last four or five years I have seen my beloved club dismantled and systematically put through the shredder by an absent owner and his happless henchmen who struggle to realise what shape ball we play with. Even that I understand, as they are business men pulling all the financial strings at the club, there lies the problem, they are obviously totally inept at their jobs, that is why, this time, there is NO light at the end of the tunnel.
For the first time in my life I am totally embarrassed by my club and feel totally let down to the point where I’ve had enough, so as my son, we don’t want to go anymore, and it’s hard to say that.
Why should anyone bother, the henchmen don’t seem to be bothered, except for their own well being and bank accounts. They have already waved the white flag for this season, so why should the players bother, and so why should WE bother.
So, I would like to thank Mr Lerner, Mr Fox, Mr Reilly (who the hell is he, what does he do?) and thanks to the other bloke who’s name I can’t spell, and finally thanks to the new chairman Mr Hollis, I know you have only just joined the club, and most of the tripe precedes you, but you have knocked the final nail into the claret and blue coffin by totally ignoring the latest transfer window, all hope has now gone. If you’re a true chairman and leader, may I ask one thing? Why haven’t you fired all of the inept board of directors for dereliction of duty over the last five years or does your employment have a different agenda? Happy asset stripping!
Season ticket holders or not……that’s it, we’ve had enough, sadly no more Villa for us until we have a club and a board worthy of our support.
RIP ASTON VILLA FC.
