Dean Smith years:
1st year promotion
2nd year stay in PL
3rd year mid table in PL
This man and his team have gave us our Villa back. Facts youngest team and one of the smallest squads in the PL. Best season in God knows how many years.3rd best defense in PL. Youth set up getting better and better. CV outbreak this season ruined momentum. All these and there are many more facts which I'm sure MOST are aware of have bode us well this season. Remeber the deadly Doug era sacking a manager for the sake of it well I'm afraid with these owners it's not going to happen we have our best manager in years and some have the audacity to question his judgement? Dean Smith along with his backroom staff for me are doing wonders so what if performances are not as good we are now in a position as a club to move to season 4 with hope and optimism with the right blend of youth and experience from this season we will move to the next level. Rwmeber the 5 year plan well we are 1 year ahead of ourselves. And just to quote the Spurs manage on Sunday" We are 5 years behind Man C" This is a Spurs side who have been in the PL for god knows how many years. Sacking ain't the answer we need to all be singing off the same hymn sheet and like someone said on here a bad apple ( Barkley) could be our downfall imagine what 500 bad apples would do. IN DEAN I TRUST.

I’m absolutely with you Daz when assessing a manager it should be over an extended period of time not 3-4 months and as you say his track record over the 2 -3 years he has been in charge is good. I agree we are ahead of schedule based on the plan developed by NSWE when they took over, and given the money I am confident based on the signings he has made up to now that future investment will be good and that we will kick on again next season. We know changing managers regularly doesn’t work we have done that often enough, we have tried putting up and coming managers in charge (Paul Lambert) and that didn’t work, let’s hold our nerve and show some confidence in one of our own. God forbid we have someone like Bruce or Mourinho in charge.

2.) 27 Apr 2021 08:59:09
Thank you John.

3.) 27 Apr 2021 16:42:41
Daz, you are correct in what you say, and I have a great belief that we will continue to improve.
I want Deano to succeed as much as anyone, and I will support him if I think he is doing the right things.
However having said all that, If I think players are not performing, and our form is suffering, I will say so.
Would people rather I said all was great, when in truth our results are showing that is not the case.
In my opinion team selection is showing uncertainty, and a lack of confidence in our back up.

4.) 27 Apr 2021 17:02:34
Good posts Daz and John. I haven’t always agreed with some of Deano’s line ups, substitutions, reluctance to try some of the youngsters etc., but I wholeheartedly agree we should stick with him.
To be a top 6 side, we need to have a much stronger squad. When Deano’s got that, I have every confidence we will be.
With the current squad, I doubt there’s a manager out there who would have got us higher than a mid-table finish.

5.) 27 Apr 2021 17:14:00
But we have Jack tho, so surely top 2 is guaranteed? 🤔😁.

6.) 27 Apr 2021 18:21:51
In response to Dave I agree performances haven't been as good of late and yes team selection sometimes are questionable but this is why he is paid the money to do a job for us which I believe he has done so with great effort. People say why don't he play 2 up top and I believe the reason he hasn't is because all season we have had only 2 fit strikers imagine if 1 got injured that would leave us with 1 fit striker it don't take a rocket scientist to work that out mate. As for the youth playing Ramsey has come on this season and he has given some a taste of the 1st team set up. I think next season you will see a couple of our youth team getting their chance but as all managers know you can't play 2 or 3 as that would weaken the side so much. Take the Liverpool game for instance that youth team played well but faltered in the end against a side when let's face it have struggled this season. All in all I think its been a great season and here's to next season when Deano should be judged.

7.) 27 Apr 2021 18:22:24
Hahaha Moose love it.

8.) 27 Apr 2021 18:26:42
And to Mark i'm so glad we didn't get into Europe this season our squad is nowhere near good enough nor big enough to compete in 4 competitions. Hopefully next season we can push on that little but further and build further.

9.) 27 Apr 2021 18:51:36
Thank you Daz, in your first two lines, you have agreed with what I am saying.
Performances haven't been as good of late, and team selection is sometimes very questionable.
Ok so change things, mix things up a bit, try something new.
So why is it different for you to say exactly the same thing mate.

10.) 27 Apr 2021 19:25:07
Dave, please name a manager in the Premier League (or anywhere) who has majorly changed their system and selections based on a run of iffy form.
Managers have their ideas and they stick by them. We can disagree with them but other managers can't be better in that regard when they don't do it either.
Other managers may have a system which works better for certain teams, may have better training methods or get their ideas across better or the big one, just have better players who've played together for a longer period of time.

11.) 27 Apr 2021 19:33:14
I to would like to see some of the youngsters given a chance before the seasons end to gauge progression and I guess in some ways influence the transfer targets for next season. My worry is with the likes of Elmo, Engels, Taylor, Lansbury, Hourihane, Heaton, Nakamba, Trez, and El ghazi will be moved on, we will upgrade a number of those positions, that being the case the opportunities for our youngsters will be less than it is now, and I wonder whether the plan will be to loan a significant number of them out to give them experience of league football if not then as others have said we run a real risk of losing these talented kids particularly if they see no path to first team football with Villa.

12.) 27 Apr 2021 19:56:51
With all due respect Dave and please don't take this the wrong way there is saying it and there is repeating it over and over again. As RK has said different games different tactics players Deano has been a PL manager for 2 seasons he is growing along with the team.

13.) 27 Apr 2021 20:09:37
Rk I can give you four instances, that contrary to what you are saying would disprove your theory.
Derby twice under Clough, and Leeds twice under Revie, system and formation changed with great results.
Players involved, Davies, Hector and O`Hare for Derby. and Giles, Gray, Yorath and Lorimer for Leeds.
So guys I will let you have your space, what's that saying again, oh yeah
"you can`t teach an old dog new tricks".
Shame really.

14.) 27 Apr 2021 20:41:00
So 2 managers who are no longer with us? Very great managers but I was looking for something more in the now as you say he has to learn to change or be replaced by someone who will.
Klopp didn't change his tactics and Liverpool have suffered this season. People have questioned the high line and him not changing tact but is anybody questioning his managerial abilities or suggesting he is on borrowed time because of it?

15.) 27 Apr 2021 20:52:39
Yeah Klopp never changed his tactics, that again is my point, you have to change things.
And rk, I have never said Deano needs replacing.

16.) 27 Apr 2021 20:56:36
I wonder whether the reluctance to play a different system revolves around the protection the two defensive midfielders provide the back four, we are a lot tighter at the back than last season but that compromises our attacking capabilities, I know at first we produced some stunning results but as all premiership teams do other teams have sussed us out a little bit, that combined with Jack’s injury and Barkley to all intensive purposes going AWOL we have been left woefully short in the creativity department hence we have at times looked average at best. The more I think about it we need at least 1 quality defensive midfielder we could then play McGinn further up the pitch where, as he is for Scotland much more effective than he is for us currently I also think that would give us more options in terms of changing systems.

17.) 27 Apr 2021 21:52:48
Brilliant assessment Daz👍.

18.) 27 Apr 2021 22:03:16
Dave, I know you haven't said he needs replacing now but you also said he needs to change something or he would need to be.
If the players pick their form back up and we add, as expected, in the summer then would the system and other things still need to change? Smith has seen that the players can go on a good run with how it is. Ripping up the hymn sheet doesn't stop them passing to the advertising hoardings when they get a rush of blood or aren't focusing properly.
Klopp has players out injured and out of form. People suggest the high line isn't helping but a lot of people would also suggest they'd probably still ship goals regardless with the second rate defenders that are having to play.

19.) 28 Apr 2021 17:02:05
Rk, if there are new additions in the next window, then things will probably not need changing.
Hopefully any new players we get, will be better than what we have, and be more capable of carrying out their duties.
We have got most of the juice out of what we have, and at times have been found wanting, all I am asking, is realisation that is the case.
And I reiterate I have never asked for Deano`s sacking, I have said he needs the remainder of this season, and next season, fact mate.

As far as Liverpool are concerned I will leave that to my son-in-law, he is the one who is up to speed on their problems.

20.) 28 Apr 2021 18:32:15
I was listening to TalkSPORT this afternoon where they were getting into the Arsenal takeover and having a real go at Arteta and in essence asking for his head, what’s that got to do with us I hear you ask, well someone who apparently who follows the NFL and American sport in general said that by and large American owners are generally really reluctant to get rid of coaches/ managers rather they tend to get rid of the players that are not doing it for them. An interesting perspective I thought maybe Deano’s position isn’t as under threat as some journalists would have us believe.

21.) 28 Apr 2021 19:39:15
That`s worth a thought John.

22.) 28 Apr 2021 22:31:11
Wes Edens basketball team suggedt that also John, they took a young coach and focused on the money moneyball tactic with the players until it clicked. I imagine he's probably the more hands on of the owners with that experience and he's recently done an interview backing the stats based approach.

Jack Grealish signs new 5 year deal.


1.) 15 Sep 2020 11:59:01
That seemed to come out of nowhere - fantastic news.

Its the signing of the transfer window get in utv.

3.) 15 Sep 2020 16:22:32

You need to send in the original post Kingy as I don’t remember you posting anything like that at all.

Me neither Kingy.

8.) 15 Sep 2020 22:04:54
king not even jack knew before Saturday so how you work that stop talking s#$t again.

kingy not even jack knew before Saturday so stop talking s@$t again.

10.) 15 Sep 2020 22:11:40
It was posted on 13th August, and it is as kingy stated.
Still think its guess work.

11.) 15 Sep 2020 22:20:33
Fair play Kingy.

Dave thanks for putting me straight I must have missed the post.

12.) 15 Sep 2020 22:31:28
You are welcome John.

13.) 16 Sep 2020 11:03:16
Thanks Dave and John your King will pardon the rest especially badger boi but an apology would be nice.
Jack knew well before Saturday my sources told me he always wanted to stay he had told Villa that it was the negotiations over the new contract with Jacks agent that took the time.
And I was also told that not one single bid or offer came in for Jack.

14.) 16 Sep 2020 11:11:08
My sources were also correct about the Oli Watkins deal the only thing that took the time was the negotiations for the transfer fee and add-ons Villa began to panic as time was running out and Spurs had entered the negotiations hence why we paid much more than our valuation although Watkins had already agreed terms with us.
Another one from the king.

15.) 16 Sep 2020 12:48:50
As james Mason famously said in Salems Lot- "Bow down to the Master" 👏😂😂.

16.) 16 Sep 2020 14:53:17
OK kingy so jacks a lyer then when he said 50/ 50 we await Friday and see if rashica is in i bet he won't be.

17.) 17 Sep 2020 13:31:13
Any news on rashica.

18.) 18 Sep 2020 23:52:08
Its that time kingvilla. still nothing from you or rashica, told you I would be right.



09 Sep 2020 10:17:07
Perhaps a ED could enlighten me on a transfer fee? We are reportedly paying £28 mill for a player rising to £33 million with Exeter reportedly getting £4 mill. Is this why the fee is so high and Brentford held out to get let's say £24 mill for him or will Exeter get that money over a certain time scale?


{Ed002's Note - Exeter will recieve 15% of the fee that Aston Villa pay Brentford. It typically works on the basis of 15% of each installment paid by Aston Villa is passed on to Exeter by Brentford.}

1.) 09 Sep 2020 11:00:08
Cheers Ed. To be fair to Brentford they held out for the best possible deal for themselves which you can't blame them. To be honest I think overall this could be a very astute signing for us but only time will tell.

{Ed002's Note - I think it will be a very good signing.}

2.) 09 Sep 2020 12:38:03
When you consider we paid 18 mill for Bent 6 years ago i think this isn't too bad.

He scores more than 1 in 2 in the championship. i think linking up with Grealish he could be extremely prolific. I would try and sign benrahma no if i was Smith. Having someone who he plays well with and with the skill quality of benhrama i think we will be knocking on top 10 door providing we can get a keeper in and we survive injuries.



27 Jul 2020 21:57:00
Suso has left AVFC now what happens is anybody's guess.


1.) 27 Jul 2020 22:02:15
Great news Daz.

2.) 28 Jul 2020 00:21:05
Maybe we won't buy anyone from the Belgian league!

3.) 28 Jul 2020 08:51:36
Sure is Dave personally I think it's a step in the right direction. Will they employ another one or just let Deano have a free reign? I just don't know but if it's the latter and we get the players Deano wants and we struggle you can bet your bottom dollar he won't be in a job by Christmas that's for sure.

4.) 28 Jul 2020 14:23:14
Spot on Daz, if they are going to use someone in that capacity, why not use Brian Little, Stan Petrov, or Ian Tayor.
People who have the club at heart, and not the money.
I am sure Deano would flourish with people like that behind him.
The final decision being made by the manager.

5.) 28 Jul 2020 17:16:26
Dave excellent shout. Just glad suso has gone.

6.) 28 Jul 2020 17:22:50
Petrov is a hero but he was the one who pushed to sign Tonev. Club legends don't necessarily equal good scouts.
Wouldn't say no to Little though, he had a decent recruitment record and gave youngsters chances.

7.) 28 Jul 2020 18:21:29
I also think Terry might leave which if that is the case I'd get Martin Laurson in as Deanos assistant.

8.) 28 Jul 2020 20:17:09
Another good shout Daz.



08 jul 2020 21:30:30
we are not down yet. its a good job we are playing behind closed doors imagine the toxic atmosphere instead of trying to be that 12th man!


1.) 09 Jul 2020 06:03:46
Where's the goals going to come from and also clean sheets and add too we need 4points points come on daz we ain't going to win another game, we had our chance in the summer and at Xmas and blew it just like the 148 mil spent on crap.

2.) 09 Jul 2020 07:42:19
No such thing as the 12th man at Villa anymore Daz, hear any ex players for us or other teams talk and it’s always the same “get on them for 5 minutes and the crowd will turn, then you’ve won”. In many ways we’ve got what we deserve this season and previous, toxic fan base for the most part.

3.) 09 Jul 2020 10:07:53
Theres a result in us somewhere just waiting for it. Tonight we have nothing to lose go out there and give it a go. Then the next 4 games I can personally see us getting 4-6 points then we have to rely on other results to go our way can we? Do we deserve to No but it's our club we have to believe. Well apart from the few.

4.) 09 Jul 2020 10:14:38
I agree its a good job we are not going watching us lose every single game without sometimes even having a shot thank god we are getting a refund on our season ticket! Villa fans back there team big style but when you play as crap as we do every football fan in the world would boo!

5.) 09 Jul 2020 14:08:36
Agree we all support villa and want us to do well, no one is going to say they are happy when we have been crap.

That was only the 1st leg Daz, we play the return leg at home in a couple of weeks, the away goals are welcome though.




30 Apr 2021 10:36:44
VillaDave I hope you know its nothing personal and I also hope you know I have a lot of time for you. The reason I got on my high horse was because of a couple of posters was saying "sack him" "clueless" "Not watching this shxt no more" and it seemed as though you was jumping on their bandwagon. I detest negativity as you know for my personal demons and their are a few on here who seem to dwell on the past and are hellbent on causing let's say mischief on here. You also need to understand from my point of view that we have been in my opinion a joy to watch for most part of this season so to have anyone say anything bad about us will provoke a retaliation from me as I said before at least we have a club to support now. In relation to the other 2 people and I think we all know who they are negativity breeds negativity so heres a clear and plain message to them. If your not happy with supporting a club we nearly lost why support them at all? . Again Dave if you took offence to any of my post I apologise whole heartedly as it was never my intention to do that UTV.


1.) 30 Apr 2021 11:48:32
I'd also like to clarify that I used the term people in my first post on the matter to try distance Dave from the group I was referring to but that point was clearly missed.
We both know the people we refer to, the ones who are just waiting for the chance to say something bad and hide away when they can't do so.
Dave, please don't caught up in thinking when we question certain people's motives that anyone is referring to yourself just because our posts are in proximity of yours.

2.) 30 Apr 2021 14:42:32
I know that Daz, blimey I am a bit long in the tooth for that.
Look it seens we differ somewhat in our opinion about this subject, so I think it best if we agree to disagree.
I have a lot oft time for you as well Daz, so its the same for me, nothing personal at all.
I have nothing personal against anyone on here, I consider you all friends.
So if I have offended you or anyone on here, I am sorry it was not intended OK 👍 👍.

3.) 30 Apr 2021 14:44:24

Another player signing a contract extension well deserved Matty. His word "Progression" All these players signing contract extensions must trust the club the owners and also the manager. Why can't fans?


1.) 29 Apr 2021 22:26:34
Players are no different to the rest of the working class, someone offers to double your wage and for a longer period, I wouldn't blame anyone for looking after their family and future. I don't see it as loyalty just pragmatism and I think it's OK, I don't see much loyalty from either side in football.



29 Apr 2021 07:42:57
I'd love a couple of Eds take on Dean Smith and your thoughts on what some people are saying?


{Ed001's Note - I have no idea what some people are saying. And by take on him, what do you mean by that? Do you mean how he is doing? I would say he is doing about as good a job as he can in the circumstances of this season. You need a bit of normality before you can judge him, but he has clearly made progress and surely that should be what you are looking for? The only question for me is whether he has reached his peak and stalled, hence the poor recent results, or whether those results are down to current circumstances?

I don't think anyone can answer that, as it is impossible to tell due to this season's unique nature. The games are coming too thick and fast for a coach to have enough effect to fix any issues that arise. So a lot of it comes to down to the individual quality of the players, quite simply Villa's individual quality is not that good in Premier League terms. Overall, I mean. There are a few, such as the keeper, that stand out, but mostly you have a core of players, such as Trezeguet and Traore, that have shown flashes of quality throughout their career but tend to struggle to produce it consistently.

Hardly really a surprise as you have not long returned to the Prem, so you need time to rebuild the squad. Personally I think Smith deserves to be give that time before he is judged.}

1.) 29 Apr 2021 09:13:56
Summed up perfectly Thank You Ed I think some on her just can't grasp what's happened this season its our 2nd year back and some want miracles its just not going to happen overnight we are light years away from the Spurs and Leicesters of the League sacking someone for the sake of it is just not right in my honest opinion.

{Ed001's Note - people lack patience these days it must be said. No one seems to understand the value in waiting and working for something. My parents would save up when they wanted something and buy it when they had the money. These days people buy it first, then pay it off later. That is the mentality in football too, which is why so many managers are sacked for no real reason.}

2.) 29 Apr 2021 10:03:14
Thats very true Ed. We had a fantastic start to the season and the football was great to watch unfortunately after our CV outbreak we seemed to have steered off the road a bit. Me personally don't think that's down to Dean and his staff its down to games in days and the fatigue of CV afterall footballers are athletes also Its no coincidence that there are more injuries this season to players due too the amount of games played in time frame. Us as a club are heading in the right direction under our present staff but some just can't see this and to be honest that's why I feel so passionate when it comes to Dean and the staff they are the right people for the job.

{Ed001's Note - exactly, it is telling how much better the team with by far the biggest and strongest squad has looked than everyone else this season. Pep has been able to constantly rest and rotate throughout the season, no one else has had that luxury, and it has helped them look even better than they are. Everyone else is struggling to perform consistently as players are tired, others are missing through injury and the coaching has been mostly limited to recovery work between games as there is no time for actual coaching.}

3.) 29 Apr 2021 10:25:27
Many thanks Ed for your take and time on things. So for all those who question Dean and his staff ability to manage and do tactics for a match its like most have been saying give him time and we will reap the benefits. don't forget last season we had to buy near on a new team and I think if you put your hand on your hearts you can't say we have had a bad season really. A few more additions and let's kick on for next season in the words of George Michael "Youve got to have Faith"

{Ed001's Note - very welcome daz.}

4.) 29 Apr 2021 14:41:38
Some very valid points in there guys I agree with some of the points made. however I feel dean had a large part to play in our players getting tired early in the season with his persistence in not making subs till the last few mins in the first 18 games, even when we were winning comfortably. He was 100% at fault against the baggies he stood watching us dominate them without final product for at least 25-30 mins more than he should have, just like the Fulham game when he made subs the game changed and we got something from it but could of being 3 points instead of 1 v West Brom, in my opinion he’s to afraid to get beaten with his team selection, for instance Sheffield, Fulham, West Brom, Newcastle all these games starting with such a defensive setup when those teams have struggled all season, we shouldn’t need 2 CDM’s against the relegation clubs, no ambition whatsoever he’s a decent manager but not and never will be a great 1 in my opinion, look at Brentford for example they were always a decent team under him but he couldn’t take them any further than just outside playoff places, he leaves and along with a lot of their best players and straight away they in the playoffs 2 years running.
fair enough our players are suffering from fatigue but so are every other team, he’s not getting his team selection right he’s not getting the best out of what’s available and he’s afraid to take any risk even though we are safe with nothing to play for. Conor and Freddie have also being a big loss they should never of bring let go on loan.
I’m grateful for everything he’s done for us I really am but my opinion remains “he’s reached his peak he’s never getting us ahead of the teams currently above us, if we want to push on to the next level we need a better manager with more experience at top level. u can say he’s still learning but he didn’t learn from the Fulham game and it cost us against West Brom and could of being worse if West Brom hadn’t completely f**ked it up. the club is bigger than 1 person Aston Villa will still be here when we are all dead and gone. this year was a huge opportunity for us but he’s sh** the bed in my humble opinion.

5.) 29 Apr 2021 15:42:10
I think the same people think he's the king on here just because he supports villa, he's not a good manager at I've said it a few times if we want to go to next level deano is not the man to lead us there we need a big name manager, not a championship manager and before people have a go at me it's my opinion, I think villa go do a lot better but if people are happy with what's going fair play but all I can say is if he's still in charge nxt season nothing will change and we probably end up in bottom half again.

6.) 29 Apr 2021 16:13:33
What like Big Sam or Sean Dyche? youve mentioned them names before Villa4eva and exactly where are they? Utterly clueless!

7.) 29 Apr 2021 16:22:57
Whack with all due respect we are still building from last season Jesus Christ. Weve had to build a completely new squad from 2 years ago do you not get it? Championship players coming into the Big boys league learning our manager learning old players learning coaches learning our owners learning me learning you learning you learn something new everyday. It baffles me really does how you cannot see the bigger picture what's going on. All the teams above us are 10 PLUS year vetrans of the PL with squad depth and experience its like me going in the ring with Fury.

8.) 29 Apr 2021 17:05:32

It's about opinions and views other people want different things for there club, but I respect your opinion but mine won't change, we won't be top 8 team with Smith in charge not a chance in a million yrs.

Daz I know we are still building I get that but it’s the simple things he’s not doing right that bug me the most. We were behind on Sunday after a few mins of the second half but he waited till the 78th min to make a change, we needed a goal so he took off a cm and put on another cm? That makes sense to you after how we turned it around against Fulham with the extra striker? 3 goals in 13 mins or something like that when the proper subs were made with over 20 mins left on the clock. he had 2 strikers on the bench so he had the options available. real good managers earn their money by picking the right team and making the right subs when needed and he’s not consistent enough with those 2 simple aspects of management in my book. Davis had 10 mins on the pitch he had at least 3 shots on goal in that period 1 goal 1 hit the post and the other I remember was a timid enough shot on target, he done more in that 10 mins than most of the guys on the pitch. W have being poor now for about 12-13 games it’s not just a bad patch it’s our form, you can’t just say “oh we are going to buy in the summer so we will automatically be better cause it will take players a while to bed in, plus everyone else will buy players aswel so they will have the same chance of being better.

With all due respect Dave and please don't take this the wrong way there is saying it and there is repeating it over and over again. As RK has said different games different tactics players Deano has been a PL manager for 2 seasons he is growing along with the team.

And to Mark i'm so glad we didn't get into Europe this season our squad is nowhere near good enough nor big enough to compete in 4 competitions. Hopefully next season we can push on that little but further and build further.

In response to Dave I agree performances haven't been as good of late and yes team selection sometimes are questionable but this is why he is paid the money to do a job for us which I believe he has done so with great effort. People say why don't he play 2 up top and I believe the reason he hasn't is because all season we have had only 2 fit strikers imagine if 1 got injured that would leave us with 1 fit striker it don't take a rocket scientist to work that out mate. As for the youth playing Ramsey has come on this season and he has given some a taste of the 1st team set up. I think next season you will see a couple of our youth team getting their chance but as all managers know you can't play 2 or 3 as that would weaken the side so much. Take the Liverpool game for instance that youth team played well but faltered in the end against a side when let's face it have struggled this season. All in all I think its been a great season and here's to next season when Deano should be judged.

We also have the best coaches we've had in years and years ie JT CS NC all who have more knowledge in the game than any fans and to Judge DS is like judging them too. Dave its nothing personal don't take things to heart mate just look at the bigger picture what is going on and in time I'm sure you will see like so many on here see that our club is on the verge of something good just please don't jump on the bandwagon that's going in the opposite direction.
