    Sorry I make no apologies for stating a fact. Nothing holy about it. ” To hell with stats” ..........says it all really. This seems to be the in thing. If you don’t fancy some facts, ignore them. I will be the first to say our defence is poor if we start conceding significantly more goals than others. Im happy to comment on a poor performance in any one game. But it’s you, not me, that’s ignoring the 3 clean sheets and the two other games where we Conceeded just 3 goals. My point has simply been that ( again) sincecSmith took over our defence has stacked up. Its even been said that only looking at Smiths time is daft...! On that basis, if we play 1/3 season under Manager 1, and conceed 100 goals, then 2/3 under Manager 2, and conceed None, wed go into our last game “ with a crap defence” because we have to count the time of the previous bloke. Plain nonsense. You agree, do you not, that prior to last night our defence under Smith has been bettered by only 2 Clubs ? Oh, no, you don’t, because you want to ignore stats. Yes, they went through us like a knife through butter. Does not mean our defence is crap, any more than them conceding 5 means theirs is. It poured with rain after the game, does that mine it rains all the time ? You are right, upcoming games will show whether our defence is useless or not. I am very confident, based on what has actually happened since Smith joined, rather than on how I feel about last night, that those games will show our defence is no worse than most of our competitors.

    You know what I signed out because this was a waste of time but I’m buggered if I’ll let you misrepresent me. 1. You have NOT just said “ our defence could be better” .....you said “ we can’t defend”. 2. I have not said everything is fine, I’ve said UNDER SMITH......UNDER SMITH......our defence stacks up to our rivals. Have whatever opinions you like but don’t misrepresent me.

    Indeed, and as I have said repeatedly before last night Smiths Villa defence had been bettered by only 2 other sides. But apparently that’s irrelevant

    Yes mate sorry it read wrong ! There will always be some who see the world how they want to, rather than how it is.

    You sound thrilled. As thrilled as the minority at the game who did nothing but moan at the goals Conceeded. And you did, you said our defence was crap. ( unless “ can’t defend” means “ I’m happy and our defence is pretty good”)

    I’ve got news for you, it won’t be.

    That’s the point. W3 aren’t conceding a lot, we are conceding the norm. Forget it. We are crap, you are right, enjoy the next fiasco.

    Well @Thugif I had the faintest idea what that was I’d either wholeheartedly applaud it or dislike it intensely !

    There’s your happiness right there. Whereas I simply pointed out our defence under Smith is comparable to our rivals.

    There you go again. This debate has been nothing to do with whether things can be improved. Smith has NOT said “ we can’t defend” as you have. Of course things can be improved Im saying our defence under Smith is etc etc etc I won’t say it again. Ask Smith whether our defence under him is as good as Derby and the Baggies...I think you’ll find he will agree with me. Ludicrous comment.

    Dean Smith

    Ha that’s just pathetic ! Its me that IS happy about things, not you. I’m very very happy. Hikarious,. And all you’ve done is fail to counter the facts....hence the reference to the other issues - about which I can assure you I’ve no bee or bonnet. Our defensive record under Smith is equal to a Derby and the Baggies, promotion contenders. Its marginally worse than Forest and Leeds. Promotion contenders. Yet you insist we can’t defend.

    Dean Smith

    How hard did Derby work to score theirs ? Oh...hang on. Or free scoring Norwich ? Or Swansea ...oh.... Or Bolton ? Or 2nd in the Form Table QPR ? Between those teams, 3 goals scored . Surely you can see this ?

    This simply does not equate to the facts. Debating based on facts is clearly going out of fashion. Ive done it with Trump fans, I’ve done it with Brexiteers, I’m not going to waste time doing it on here. Our defensive record under Smith does not warrant “ we can’t defend”, but please yourself.
  14. terrytini

    Dean Smith

    I don’t think you are seeing my point. Our record under Smith does not require me to dismiss conceding as acceptable.....since it’s on a par with most everyone else’s. Im not arguing conceding goals doesn’t matter, I’m pointing to the facts that we aren’t out of step with our competitors. But I guess people will see what they want As always.

    Which would indicate the bigger problem ? Beating Boro and the Baggies 4-3 each, or beating them 1-0 each ? If you were Boro and the Baggies, which would you prefer ? Is there even any difference ? Does it matter ? If we Win each game have we (even temporarily) ‘ fixed a problem’, whereas if we beat them 4-3 we will “ have a problem” ? How about two 0-0 draws ? Good ? Two 3-3 Draws ? Bad ? Nah. Its a big big big red herring.
