It’s not totally Villa related, but it is in a way, if you see what I mean.
So Tan (I’m really not going to research his first name, such is the contempt I regard him with) has said to Malky Mackay “resign or be sacked” on the back of accusations that the latter spent miles above his budget in the summer window.
So how does that work?
Is it really the case that the manager has his hands on the cheque book and the chairman has nothing to do with it?
This is similar to what some people suggested wrt Martin O’Neil, but I very much doubt it’s the case.
Surely Billionaires don’t throw their money about like that?
Anyway, the main reason for posting this, is more a message that Mackay has my support in this argument.
Tan has changed the clubs colours, he’s written to Mackay, slating his buys, his results and even the tactics. He’s sacked his number 2, totally undermining the manager and appointed some kid who was on a training scheme to take over.
And he expects the manager to resign?
What an absolute scumbag, in my opinion.
So this is just a bit of support, even though you’ll never read it Malky.
Make him sack you and pay you off.
Even if you resign, it’ll no doubt be seen as constructive dismissal.
Most importantly though, what’s all this doing to morale for the players?
I’ll re-iterate. What a total scumbag Tan is.
Should we really be wishing for Lerner out so strongly?
Perhaps things could be a lot worse?
