They weren't several years old, the last one was in April 2016, but let's move on.

He will never change to be a Villa Fan, it would be like me working for that lot, I would take the money but there is no chance that I would support them!!!

If he's the best person for the job why does which team he supports matter?

We don't apply the same logic to players, why should it apply to staff? It's just a job.

Grassing somebody up over tweets?  Fucking hell, I'd have hoped we were better than that.

It matters not a jot what team he supports. But as recently as last summer, he has publicly stated he hates Villa and enjoys nothing more than seeing them lose. How long does anyone think they'd last in their job if they'd published derogatory comments about their employer on a worldwide platform? In fairness, if their employer had been anything like thorough and professional, they probably wouldn't have been offered the job in the first place.

To be honest, I'm more disappointed (though not surprised) in Villa than some congenitally bitter, hate-filled and obsessed knuckledragger. Half-arsed indeed.

Precisely. Does he need to be a passionate Villa fan? No. But funding a social media manager without a very public record of strongly anti-Villa opinions should not have been beyond us.

There will be plenty of non Villa fans working at the club that do a fantastic job. However the bloke responsible for official club communication with us hates us with a passion, to me that doesn't sit right.

It doesn't sit right with me either. I know he's not on the playing staff but how can we all be pulling in the same direction when we employ someone behind the scenes who wants us to lose every week?

Support who you like, BUT  bite the hand that feeds you, and I say remove the offending bile before it affects others.

I'm more concerned that they clearly didn't check his twitter feed beforehand. This is a social media position for McGraths sake so that's a pretty poor show.

It doesn't sit well with me either but after what feels like decades of ongoing incompetence at the club this is probably the least of our worries.

It doesn't sit right with me either. Unlike the previous' of that grubby meeja type, the club have been eminently reasonable & mature with their response. He'd have been on his bike if it were down to me.
