I think the owners need too get a manager that has been there and done it a propper manager that has managed at top level and has won things like leeds did with bielsa, and wolves with nuno, that's what i reckon we need a manager that will tell the players and not be afraid too kick there bck sides, no disrespect to deano he's only managed walsal n brentford, its a massive step up managing villa, sooner or later we will get the right manager, look at leeds its took em 15 yrs too get a good 1 ha ha.

4eva, again you are covering old ground, Same old same old.
Its like having cabbage every night for tea.

Wots wrong with cabbage ha ha.

Dave every1 talks about the same stuff on here read threw peoples post most of your posts are the same sticking up for smith mate.

17 Feb 2019 18:51:08
If you read them they are answers to posts, not statements.

So we need a new manager with a winning track record I am hearing. Like we have attracted those over the years?! My favourite managers are as follows:

Ron Saunders - can’t remember him winning loads pre villa?
Graham Taylor - Did well with Watford nut can’t recalll massive wins, promotions aside
Big Ron - perhaps class at WBA and odd cup May tick a box?
Brian Little - not great before villa other than getting LCFC up?
Martin O’Neil - as a manager did he win loads pre villa?

Give Dean Smith time to prove his current doubters wrong. We won’t get a Klondike or Moutinho or Pepp! Let’s get real and see what we can do August 2019 onwards UTV.

It all gets a bit emotional immediately after a defeat to local rivals, so as the dust settles and heads are a bit clearer my current thinking. The owners are extremely unlikely to change the management. They did not make their money overnight but through clever business accumen over a period of time, this approach in my opinion will be their approach. So Deano stays. So if the ball is in his court what can he do. Firstly he can stop blaming everyone except him self this serves no purpose whatsoever other than alienate, fans, players and referees. He needs to take a good hard look at his tactics. The current squad with the obvious exceptions made the playoffs last year so they must have something, he needs to unlock whatever previously worked, which obviously he is not doing at the moment. In Deans defence i think he has made a start with the massive task of rebuilding. Yesterday was not good enough and whilst i appreciate that it is stating the obvious, it was an improvement on Brentford. On most of the stats we were ahead except the most important one i accept that but we did have chances. I think Mings, Hause, Kalanic, Chester and Tz can become a reasonably reliable defence. Jack and Mcginn in midfield Green and Tammy upfront. After this Deano needs to step up and get the best out of what's left. This is where the manager needs to earn his money. So on the basis of my earlier comment regarding tbe managers position and my claret and blue tinted glasses i would like to adopt a more positive approach. It seems that Dean is a good guy and "one of our own" and could eventually be one of our favourites however he has got to step up to the plate, he has got to change things for the better soon or any goodwill and patience from the fans will vanish, crowds will dwindle and when it starts to hit financially then the owners commercial heads will kick in and Deano will be another managerial casualty.

Scotcafu, at least we agree that Deano has a massive rebuild to do . As you say these owners are not the type to panic . They will be prepared to give Deano, the backing he will need . Also as you say, when we get everybody back, we could have the makings of a decent defence . His biggest problem is that midfield, with Jack back, he will give us the flair, The rest is for him to sort out, be it with players already tried, or as you suggested maybe U23s. We know that Tammy, will score the goals if he’s given the service . Deanos problem is fitting in a system . that will provide Tammy with that service .
Iv defended Deano, because he’s having to use what he’s got . When he’s got in the players he wants, I think everybody will be happy .

Dave and Scotty, two very good posts, and between them I think lies the answer.
To be honest I am looking forward to a good clear out and a productive Summer window.

17 Feb 2019 19:45:35
Just had my season ticket reminder to buy early for the discount. I buy 4 tickets me my son and two grandkids, i will probably do it, however probably like many others are apprehensive to invest based on what's currently being served up. The prices are really good for premiership football, so we can forget that, they are good value for attacking football with flair and excitement absolutely poor value for what's being served up at the moment. So Deano for many like me you have a very small window to woo us and get us to part with our hard earned cash. I really hope i am parting with my money by the April deadline.

17 Feb 2019 07:05:39
WOW. I didn't realise how bad you lot were till the last few weeks,!
You lot must be embarrassed, to be outplayed by Brentford, and then get dicked by Sandwell town. oh my days, it's sooooo funny to watch from the heights of Wolverhampton.

In all honesty though, I'm going to Make a sensible point for you all.
I have seen this all too often with my own club, you have a bunch of players there who are on there last legs and earn a hell of a lot of money, ie- Hutton, Jed, Whelen, elphick, and a lot lot more.
IF and that's a big IF, they get you promoted what's the first thing the club are going to do? Bring in a whole new squad, so he relies my point,
1- you need a team who can get promoted then compete in the premier league (with maybe the addition of 1/ 2 players) -at this moment In time you haven't got 1 player who is good enough, yes that includes your beloved jack. - (overated) you fans don't like to hear this but it's true, I think there's a lot of your fans thinking the same but don't want to say it.

Point 2- So carrying on from point 1, why would these players WANT to get you promoted? They would be out of a job and on the scrap heap, with there thousands of pounds a week gone!
who would seriously buy these players?

There is a clique at your club and it's rotting the core. (I've been there and seen it with my own club), it's not done overnight, you may well get relegated again until you can solve it. enjoy your next "few" years, live in the memory of 82, keep singing for jack, and above all. MIND THE GAP (and that's with us, Sandwell, and the blue noses)

Embarrisng club, Embarrassing players,
Delusional FANS.

In the words of Vera lynn.

Are you deluded and what have you been smokeing, villa miles bigger club than your lot bigger history bigger stadium bigger fanbase, doesn't matter what league we are in we will always be bigger than your club so dream on pal how many seasons did your lot spend in championship and you got relegated too league 1 or have you for gotten about that, you have had 2 good seasons which is good fair play hold my hands that doesn't mean ote villa still and always will be 1 of biggest clubs in england, and 1 thing your lot will never do is win the champions league, so enjoy it villa will be bck soon,1 last point villa were ever present in prem for 20 seasons let's see how many u get and top 5/ 6 places, and you call us villa delusional you forget where u lot were a few years ago, so check history books to see whose won more trophys.

17 Feb 2019 16:05:51
Diamo1 apart from the pee taking your bang on the money and absolutely agree with all your points the club is rotten to the core and it’s needs a complete restructuring with a vision a philosophy and the whole team at Villa Park buying into the vision from the tea ladies right up to the owners.
As for wolves enjoy it while it lasts as you and I know football moves in cycles and Villa will be back bigger better stronger.
You referred to 1982 oh yes gone but not forgotten but at least we have that and as poor as we have been since then we are still England’s 5th most successful football club.

17 Feb 2019 16:40:06
Bang on mate.

17 Feb 2019 17:27:54
Hi Diamo it's hard not too agree with a lot of what you have said.
The 1 thing I do disagree on is Jack Grealish, I think he will have a top career but not at Villa Park.

18 Feb 2019 11:42:59
I understand that you would say what you say about jack grealish, The hype around him is wrong. he’s your boy and supports he’s team, however he ain’t that good. you need to believe this, so you can move on.

18 Feb 2019 17:31:42
Jcks not that good that's good😂😂😂😂thats why spurs, lpool ;everton, arsenal, chelsea want him, your what tean wouldn't want him he's a natch winner he can do things no other english players can do he's easy worth 40/ 60 mil mark my words when he goes he will be in eng squad he's going to be a class player.

19 Feb 2019 07:01:12
If he’s as good as you say he is, why isn’t he playing for England now? Or even being considered. ?
Your fans/ media hype him up, however in your big games he’s found wanting, sure you can agree on that.
Play off final for example. - (very poor)
I can guarantee you one thing, NO ONE will
Pay £40m for jack grealish.

However, he’s probably the best of a bad bunch down at your club, which marks my point, if he’s the best, your struggling. Wipe the club clean, backroom staff defo. Something wrong with JT in my opinion. Conflict of interest between manager and terry I fear.

Your club is going nowhere fast till this is resolved.

17 Feb 2019 05:14:40
To all you fellas saying write the season off and promote the u23's-you got more chance of us ground-sharing with the noses, with the talent we have, you're saying their not good enough like deano! -any manager worth his salt would adapt and crack on, and why hasn't he tried the u23's, because he doesn't trust them and being honest, they'd be a liability, any player with some vim would be forcing their way into the team-grealish for example? -their lazy and content to wait for something to happen rather than MAKE it happen with graft, look at forest today, got a draw but by all accounts should have won against preston, its the MANAGER that makes it happen, its plain to see our manager can't coax players to play a full 90 minutes,63% of possession today and what have we got to show for it, and don't start making excuses that if tammy or whoever had scored it would have made the difference, teams know how to exploit us, deano has been found out and he's too arrogant to put his hands up and change his system, we are becoming a club of mediocricy, deano's days are numbered, the new owners aren't schmocks, wouldn't be surprised to see him gone before the season is over-thats showbiz.

Agree1 Disagree1

16 Feb 2019 19:07:12
We all agree that today, once again we where found wanting . Deano admitted after the game, that the players just don't have the the ability. No movement and no ability and not enough flare .
The play offs are now a distant dream, so let's start thinking about rebuilding . Just a question for all the Deano outters, with the players available, what team whould they have played? Not really a lot of choice, when you come to think about it .
Hoorihan must of had his worst game ever .

16 Feb 2019 19:22:05
Good post Dave.
Deano basically said what we have said about the players.
Good to hear, I hope he acts on it.
As scotty has said, the under 23s are waiting.

16 Feb 2019 19:26:06
Just 1 point about Deans statement, I don't remember him questioning their ability when we outplayed Boro, Derby and The Baggies, what's changed apart from Jack missing?

16 Feb 2019 20:33:20
He had a chance to change things in January. Look what happened! January is not the best time to recruit that is true but can't complain about squad If you've had chance to change things and haven't.
That said I hop, and it is a hope, that the reason we didn't change things in Jan is 'cos Smith and the owners want to wait 'till the summer for major surgery.
Anyway, one things for sure, we'll get playing championship football next season.

16 Feb 2019 20:40:38
Pluffy we are talking about today’s game, today’s performance, that Deano remarks where about . We as fans for weeks have already stated this, But for Deano to actually more or less say he thinks the same, speaks volumes. As I have stated before, you could put your mortgage on Deano not wanting most of that team . But that is the hand he’s been dealt, silk purse &sows ear come to mind .
As I said earlier, with the players available, what winning team would you have picked?

17 Feb 2019 09:57:05
Sorry DD82 I didn't realise I was breaking your rules by talking about other than yesterday's game.

Dean has praised this side when we have done well, even after the Leeds game he mentioned our mistakes but still said he would back this side to score against anyone.
If he wants to bask in the glory he needs to also accept the flack when we are poor.
He blames referees and now the players, when will he realise that the manager and coaches also have a job to do.

16 Feb 2019 18:59:44
Once plan A fails which is pretty much every game there is no plan B. In saying this i don't know what plan A is and neither do the players. Our season is obviously over so Deano you have to look to next year. You are not going to be able to replace all of the deadwood ie Whelan, Taylor, Hourihan, Jedinak, Thor Hutton, Elphick, elmo Kodja. Jack Tammy Mings alghazi will be gone So you have the rest of this failure of a season to work with the best of the deadwood that you are you are going to have to keep. So bring in the best of the under 23's and show us some of your coaching skills which are sadly lacking at the moment.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Feb 2019 19:22:45
Agree with the U23 bit Scotty.

17 Feb 2019 13:56:20
Why not play 442.

16 Feb 2019 18:37:55
I have to be honest as I am a realist and our situation is very real.
After today we should look for a bookmaker to give us reasonable odds on AVFC making the playoffs.

Perhaps at the end of the season I might collect some money when we succeed in defying the odds and get to the playoffs.
Time for nursey to bring my medication for sure.
Yes I know its a forlorn hope but we can still get enough points and until it is mathematically impossible I will remain hopeful.

{Ed033's Note - Lord Flashheart might be a better bet than nursey. :)

16 Feb 2019 18:56:18
I have to agree oldvillan, we do still have a slim chance.

16 Feb 2019 17:12:38
Message for Mr Dean Smith: This Valentine's week, the romance is over. It just didn't workout. Once the reality kicked in it showed you and Villa were not meant to be.
Hopefully you will just walk and if you really do care about Villa we won't have a protracted and expensive divorce. It's best for all now. Time to move on.
