Villa Park fans unhappy.
Aston Villa supporters have cranked up the pressure on Alex McLeish by taking out an advert in a local paper and calling for him to be sacked.
One of the fans’ websites has held an online whipround and stumped up £600 to book space on the back of Saturday’s Birmingham Mail.

Whilst it is indeed true that Alex McLeish’s appointment has spectacular back-fired perhaps this the wrong time to make such a statement. The Midlands club has two big games left this term and once these games have been and gone then maybe a protest will be in order.
Bringing in a former Birmingham City boss was always likely to cause consternation with Aston Villa fans and the fact that we are talking about a manager who relegated the Blues last term one does wonder why Randy Lerner and co. felt that such a decision would lead to anything other than failure.
However now is the time to back the team over the next crucial 180 minutes of football rather than making grandiose statements.
