As Aston Villa toil near the bottom of the table, the pressure to sack manager Alex McLeish -- a guy many Villa fans didn't want hired away from city rivals Birmingham in the first place -- has increased. But during Saturday's West Midlands derby against West Brom, McLeish got some support from the crowd in the form of a banner that read "McLeish please stay!"

Of course, it was West Brom fans holding the banner and it was obvious their intentions weren't flattering, but McLeish's Villa held West Brom to a scoreless draw. So it's clear who won in the end. No one.
