According to papers Smith has 3 games to save his job, owners are not happy and with bottom half finish last season, if this is true fair play to them because they can see what our weakness is.

1.) 15 Sep 2021 22:53:51
Hopefully just made up paper rubbish talk ??.

2.) 17 Sep 2021 13:08:15
You always see a paper wrote about a prem manager on the way out when someone from Europe is doing the same.
This time it's Ronald Koeman
Wouldn't be a bad addition to the staff.

3.) 18 Sep 2021 18:32:11
Complete rubbish as usual, I'm not even in the concerned in the slightest.

4.) 19 Sep 2021 13:19:43
I think Deano answered that one today .



25 Jun 2021 13:02:01
Is the rumours true about jck or bs every paper and on net saying its a done deal 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬.

{Ed077's Note - what rumour?

1.) 25 Jun 2021 13:44:56
About jck going to city ed.

{Ed002's Note - They are interested in him - this has been explained.}

2.) 25 Jun 2021 15:58:14
Villa4eva, it is not a done deal and as far as I am aware Villa have not received any offer. In fact there appears to be talk of Villa considering a new bumper contract for Jack.

3.) 25 Jun 2021 13:14:26
I thought that was you I spotted in the Twilight Zone earlier Ed007 😁.

{Ed077's Note - I dont follow much of the mainstream "media" these days so wasnt sure which club Grealish was getting linked with today.}



03 May 2021 19:12:56
It looks like bayern Munich want chuk.

{Ed002's Note - Carney Chukwuemeka (CM) Aston Villa will do all they can to keep the player amid interest from Manchester City, Juventus, Hoffenheim and Bayern Munich.}

1.) 03 May 2021 20:02:50
I hope so Ed I'm excited about chuk.

{Ed002's Note - I understand he is very well thought of.}



09 Apr 2021 08:24:48
Rumours that owners want stevie Gerrard, what are peoples thoughts I think it would be a great appointment if true.

1.) 09 Apr 2021 10:00:31
Er, yeah, you know like, er, la - roughly translated as - not for me Jeff. Totally fabricated BS, more chance of my dream of signing Coutinho 😁.

2.) 09 Apr 2021 10:15:31
This strikes me as the press trying to drum up a story where in reality one doesn’t really exist. When our owners took over they were clear that we were going to have a long term plan to deliver the club success, we got promoted ahead of schedule in addition we got to a cup final, we maintained our premiership status and have kicked on from there why oh why when we are on an upward trajectory would we take the risk of changing coaches now? I could understand it if we were in free fall but we are not, don’t get me wrong I like Gerard’s approach to management but success in Scotland is very different to managing in the premiership and whilst i wouldn’t be averse to him managing our club at some point in the future that point isn’t now we should all get behind Deano.

On a separate point I see the likes of Leeds are being linked with Aguero when his contract expires, given he apparently wants to stay in the premier league what about us throwing our hat in the ring? And again before Ed 02 says he won’t sign for us and that’s more than likely true it would at least show the ambition of the club in terms of the type of signings we are competing for.

3.) 09 Apr 2021 11:40:07
Quite stunned that there should be any talk about replacing Dean Smith whether it be with Steven Gerrard or whoever
We all know that managers have a “shelf life “ but surely Dean has done enough to improve things to warrant more loyalty
Been a Villa fan long enough to realise that constantly changing the manager very seldom has long term benefits
Naturally there will come the time when we change our manager but surely not yet
We are moving forward at present and things are looking more positive than they have for a number of years
We need to be patient and stop expecting to achieve great things overnight.

4.) 10 Apr 2021 13:21:11
Spot on BigTone.

5.) 11 Apr 2021 12:21:21
Although I wouldn’t mind gerrard as manager I don’t think they would sack dean to replace with gerrard. If dean were to be sacked I’d be disappointed if he wasn’t replaced with a big name established manager with experience in either the premier league or 1 of the other big leagues in Europe. I don’t think dean can take us much further but I think stick with him for at least another season unless it’s a proven upgrade.

6.) 13 Apr 2021 01:15:41
I wouldn't take too much notice of that one to be honest and for the majority of fans I don't think it would go down to well. If Smith has a bad season and the club go backwards then it's a different tale, but for now I would suggest that it is a media generated story. UTV.

7.) 05 May 2021 10:38:59
villajohn, I suggested Aguero a couple of weeks back and got slated that his is injury prone and isn't worth the money.



21 Feb 2021 23:29:42
One of the reasons we're easy to play against is that we play the same every week and teams know now too have 2 defenders on him, trez, elgahzi, elmo, Davis, all need to be sold, barkley so lazy and is overrated, we so need another striker, winger, and that's without squad players that need replacing, we were always going to have a blip every team has, I do worry for Smith if this continues because old habits are creeping in our game again, Smith is a decent manager, but if we are to push for top 8 and top 6 in nxt 3/ 4 yrs is he the right man too take us there, I'm not calling for him to go but he doesn't have a plan a, b, c, and never uses his subs properly, and isn't ruthless he comes across to Nice, look at westham in the same position as us last season but this season like us improved but they have a manager who knows how too mix it up moyes is a very good manager, and has made great signings soucek, coufal, signings of the season in my view, where ever we finish we have made improvements and need to go again and improve more in summer 6/ 7 players need to come in squad, 6 out as well.

1.) 22 Feb 2021 09:30:48
4eva I agree with you completely re who we need to ship out and you can add Hourihane, Taylor and Engels to that list. With regards Deano this is only his second season at this level and it’s a steep learning curve, if someone had said at the end of last season we would be where we are now with only just over half the season gone we would have snapped there hands off. and to my mind that earns Deano some time however I do think he has to adapt to the requirements of the league so as a number of posters have already pointed out we need to have a plan b which we don’t seem to have at the moment we continue to play out from the back when teams employ a high press against us, if you look at City on occasions they can mix it up and play long ball as evidenced by Ederson’s assist the other day so for me it shouldn’t be a one size fits all. He definitely needs to make better use of the bench and be more ruthless when it comes to selection and I would like to see a couple of the kids at least make the bench and it was good to see that yesterday. I think we are ahead of where we thought we would be when our owners took over but again our summer recruitment is going to be vital in terms of the clubs progression if this time next year we are making no progress then I think it’s fair enough to start to ask questions about the manager but not before.

2.) 24 Feb 2021 01:27:18
Well said there. If and only if the team struggle next year after continued investment is it really fair to ask any 'big questions' of Smith. Until then he's certainly earned the right to be given time to develop the squad. Most people would admit we're probably a season ahead of where we were aiming with winning the playoffs when Smith took over, so we've had to progress even quicker which in itself is tough going. With such a positive start and being comfortable in the league I can understand the frustration some show about wanting squad players out, wanting more consistency and the fan mentality of always wanting more, but as a fan base I'd hope most would be able to look at the big picture, recognise the huge strides we're making as a club, get behind the manager and players and enjoy it. Just think where we were 3 years ago!

people forget were astonvilla why should we be happy finishing mid table every seaseon that's no ambition, with squad we have we should be finishing 8th at best . most fans on here only bck him anyway because he supports villa so that gives him leway for bad performances, people need to wake up most people i know who are villa supporters can see were not going anywhere with ds in charge, we are 3 players short from being a really good side in my opinion, i just hope our owners see sense and get rid of the weakest link and take mings and target with him there 2 of worst players I've seen at vp and one shouldn't no way near be captain of our club not even vice its a joke, i fear for us this season we could struggle even ncastle could finish higher than us with there wealth now.

1.) 17 Oct 2021 17:19:28
Nathan Baker, ciaran Clarke, joe bennet to name 3 defenders a heck of a lot worse than mings and targett. can’t blame the players, they ain’t being coached properly imo, if they ain’t playing the way dean wants them to they shouldn’t be on the pitch, the buck stops with smith, I can’t see Newcastle finishing higher than us this year, I fancy them to go down and I really hope they do as it will give us an extra year or 2 to flex our muscles before they can spend stupid money.

2.) 17 Oct 2021 17:36:31
Well done for highlighting just how childish and ridiculous some of the statements in that post were ?.

Disagree with you in the coaching but, but can sort of see where your coming from. I just think they were good enough to limit them to two real chances, one being the Traore run and the other when Konsa played it straight to their man and Mings got back to block the shot. What happened in the last 10 minutes for me is just inexcusable from the players, if the whole management team walked out the ground and told them to get on with it when it was 2-0, as professional players, there is no way on this planet you should be losing that game. Some of the stuff leading up to the first and second was beyond coaching.

3.) 17 Oct 2021 23:51:54
I guess your right we shouldn’t be losing from that position and players should be able to remain calm and compose themselves at this point, they have had some big games, being under huge pressure at times but that came out of nowhere, we were winning easily while not playing anything like our best, as soon as nakamba came on our defenders started to panick, our players should of responded better after conceding the first, I know the subs were forced in a way but each one had a negative effect,
I don’t want to be in a group of smith out posters, I just have huge doubts about his ability to bring us any further, our owners come across pretty ambitious so I don’t know how long they will remain patient, the Newcastle takeover will make our goal of top 6 even harder, if the ownership don’t see a way to progress up the table they will stop pumping money in.

4.) 18 Oct 2021 14:04:29
I don't think anyone has said on here that they'd be happy with Villa finishing mid table every year. just that mid table is probably where we should be expecting to finish at this time. If someone had offered us 3/ 4 years ago a scenario where we'd go from a mid table championship side to a mid table premier league team in 3 years and then it would take us another season or two to build a squad capable of challenging for Europe I bet everyone on here would've snapped their hand off. We're in the middle of a plan. We just need a little perspective and dare I say it patience.

5.) 18 Oct 2021 17:13:27
Exactly DBS no other words needed.

6.) 18 Oct 2021 21:33:18
Well said gents?.



16 Oct 2021 21:21:21
Does anythink aswell that watkins has become arrogant since becoming a eng player and believes his hype or has his head been turned, in my view he needs dropping for archer who is a better finisher in my opinion.

1.) 16 Oct 2021 22:17:53
He was like that spoilt brat at a wedding.
I don't know if it's the Eng callup or the lack of sleep with a new kid.
Hopefully he'll get a kick up the a** in training.



16 Oct 2021 19:16:25
Personally i'd like sean dyche as manager most on here probably won't because of his style but burnly haven't got a lot of money so you have to play that way, we all know burnly won't go dwn, dyche is the 1 holding all together there.

1.) 16 Oct 2021 19:55:19
I bet you wasn't moaning when we was 2-0 up though eh? FICKLE!

2.) 16 Oct 2021 20:11:40
I wasn't totally happy at 2 0 i could see a problem which proved to be correct.

3.) 16 Oct 2021 20:21:18
Not fickle questioning the manager after we threw a 2-0 lead down the bog
I bet if our manager wasn’t a fan who likes a sup with the lads who wears luke you’d have been moaning about today
That’s fickle.

4.) 16 Oct 2021 20:23:27
Calmed down a bit now put it down to another learning curve for dean and it wasnt all his fault southgate turns mings into a clueless pudding for a week tuanzebe being dropped last time out possibly affected his confidence not sure what to say about buendia its just not working for him in this 2 up top formation i'd like to see the return of the wing formation and 1 up front probably ings. benching watkins is harsh but he's the one lacking in the 2. I want bailey and traore and ings in the middle of em and the 4 at the back that worked so well last season utv.

5.) 16 Oct 2021 23:52:58
The constant calls for the manager to be sacked every time things don't go our way is getting really boring now. It's just so reactive it's like listening to kids at times. fair enough if you are I suppose.
3 years ago we were a mid table championship team, today we're a mid table premiership team. We now have a team of relatively new players, lots of youth, lots of potential and genuine hope for the future. Realistically, there are at least 6-8 teams who have more mature squads and/ or better players, so by definition we're a mid table team and part of that means that we're going to win, draw and lose in fairly equal measure over the course of the season while our team hopefully matures and progresses. I hope we do better than that, of course I do, but I don't expect it. Today was frustrating and yes, it's fair to ask questions about tactics and subs, but calling for Smith to be sacked now is ludicrous. Take a breath, look past the short term pain and appreciate the bigger picture.

6.) 17 Oct 2021 04:49:43
Who cares its now that matters and my opinion won't change while he is in charge we won't go anywhere the mans clueless he s not a good manager at all.

7.) 17 Oct 2021 10:04:20
Took a break from the site recently but have to weigh in here lads. It's perfectly fine to be critical of Smith but not want him sacked, I think calls for his head are excessive but I absolutely can understand why fan have become slightly disillusioned with Smith. 5-3-2 works against certain teams and doesn't against others, there is a distinct lack of flexibility despite now having a squad filled with options. If he doesn't show more adaptability and improved game management then he will ultimately lose his job, and I don't subscribe to the "well who do we get that's better" argument, Smith deserves a chance to continue in the role but if performances don't become more consistent he will pay the price. Now let's get behind the team!



16 Oct 2021 18:07:33
This team does has potiential, we need to drop 352 formation doesn't work for me you need to fast wingbcks we got 1 with cash plus also you need 3 good cbs we got 2 konsa, hause,

1.) 16 Oct 2021 19:57:33
It’s clear Villa4eva that you are a little vexed by today’s result looking at the number of posts and also the variability of them also. I can assure you I share your frustration at today’s result and avoided kicking the cat into next week by the barest of margins (heard that somewhere else? )
Mr Smith might not be the man to take us on but he is in charge at the moment and we should continue to back him. He hasn’t let us down in the 3 years or so he’s been in charge. If a change comes, I’m sure the owners will have it sorted, until then we should get behind the him and the team and help drive them on next week. UTV!



16 Oct 2021 17:26:51
Theres 4 managers who are on borrowed time in my opinion, ogs, farke, bruce, and our manager.

1.) 16 Oct 2021 17:42:16
So let’s assume your right, and I hope to god you aren’t who do you replace him with, and let’s keep the suggestions sensible.

2.) 16 Oct 2021 18:01:01
Stevn gereard, potter, blanc lampard.

3.) 16 Oct 2021 18:09:52
But if i was our owners i'd go fr joachim lowe out of work would be the dream appointment for me ticks every box.

4.) 16 Oct 2021 18:17:29
Putting Lampard in there takes away all credibility. Gerrard still needs to do anything credible, winning the SPL when Celtic didn't even turn up isn't an achievement.
Brighton have had a good start but they won't stay where they are. Potter is decent but not an upgrade.

5.) 16 Oct 2021 18:22:30
Gerrard isn’t going anywhere other than Anfield. Lampard achieved nothing at Chelsea and was shown to be tactically inept both there and whilst losing to us in the Championship final at Wembley. I am not sure what Blanc is doing presently but would he be interested in us? I doubt it. Potter is a decent shout but I fail to understand why after a bad result a number of ‘fans’ seem intent on sacking Deano just a couple of weeks after we win at Old Trafford beggars belief.

6.) 16 Oct 2021 18:30:08
Low ticks all the boxes does he? As a club manager I think his record is something like one Austrian Championship and 1 German cup hardly sets the world alight added to that he has no experience of English football bit of a downgrade if you ask me.

7.) 16 Oct 2021 18:48:55
Paolo fonseca would be high up on the list

If it’s British then what about eddie Howe?

8.) 16 Oct 2021 18:52:43
We talking about same manager who managed germany and bloodied loads of youngsters and won world cup.

9.) 16 Oct 2021 19:13:39
It’s different managing a national team as opposed to a club side as a national coach you have your pick of the best talent available you don’t have that luxury as a club coach. I would take a successful club coach over a successful national coach every day of the week.

{Ed002's Note - Perhaps you should read what I have written. You clearly don’t understand FFP, you certainly do not understand anything about the Aston Villa finances, and you don’t seem concerned that the club sold the ground. The major asset has GONE.

Ffp right like you always keep going on about il believe it when it comes out our chaiirmens mouth or our owners the 1s who know what is going on because there at the club, and plus if we were going to be hit by ffp it would of happened by now, plus it's flawed anyway city clearly cheated and got away with 8million fine, why a fine when you have done nothing wrong, anyway I trust the owners they know what they are doing, I'm sure you like just winding us villa fans up.

Agree dave he's good but he's know, platt, little, Atkinson, Yorke, and Ashley Young all of them world class jack needs to do way more for me, his 2nd half of the season wasn't great thou but if he stays and we get more quality like benerama, and quality mid and 2 strikers he would be much better.
