Rodney Marsh lambasts Villa fans who wanted Doug Ellis out on Twitter

The former forward has been discussing Aston Villa once more.

Aston Villa supporter unrest under their current owners is well documented.

But Rodney Marsh took to Twitter on Saturday night to point out that many Villa fans were similarly unhappy several years ago under Doug Ellis.

They wanted the Villa man out then and duly got their wish. However, the direction Aston Villa have taken since is far from what they would have envisaged.

As such, Marsh took to social media lambasting those who took issue with Ellis in the past.

It's simply how the modern game goes, of course. Leeds United, Aston Villa and Newcastle United are struggling with their owners.

But Manchester City, Chelsea and West Ham United have clearly benefited from theirs.

That's what makes the Everton case so interesting, as their new ownership could go either way.

Villa have suffered more than any other team currently in the Premier League (although Newcastle fans under Mike Ashley run them close).
