Aston Villa Fans

The recent announcement of 20 per cent cut out of the Club’s total workforce as a result of the relegation, has sent shock-waves through the Villa Park. DailyStar reported there was an emergency staff meeting attended by the worried staffs, at Villa’s Holte Suite on Monday.

Aston Villa’s new chairman Steve Hollis has taken a drastic action as they prepare to fight in the Championship after getting relegated from the premier league. Steve has wasted no time and took the decision with strong determination.

The 2015-16 season went horribly wrong for Aston Villa and no wonder mathematically they have already been relegated from the Premier League with still 5 games left to play. A shock for the Villa fans, but it was inevitable, seeing their poor defensive performance week after week. The former European champions and staff at Villa Park and the club’s Bodymoor Heath training complex are in shock and they will pay the price as their 30 years in the top flight football has come to an end.

Chief executive Tom Fox resigned last month along with Sporting Director Hendrik Almstadt, and were among the top people in the hierarchy who lost their jobs. But there are still many workers left who will be removed soon, and that is the worst part.

With a loss of £27m in its annual accounts the club’s commercial revenue will surely go down by a huge amount. Alex McLeish, Paul Lambert, Tim Sherwood and Remi Garde were the managers who got sacked in recent times and the club has paid way too much to end their contracts.

The club is looking for their sixth manager in the last five years. It is obvious that the upcoming manager will also be instructed to offload some of Villa’s big earners who have not been up to their value. But the problem will be deciding the future of those who have joined one year back in the summer and still have four to five years left on their contract, as cutting them off from their contract will lead to a huge amount of compensation which will be needed to be paid to them.
