    It’s jokanovic not jovanic

    I’d hope that purslow is right in his comments about ffp and that our finances are not bad enough to worry about who we can or can’t afford to sack - if smith does finish in the bottom 8 and the board feel they can attract a better manager then I’d hope that finance wouldn’t be an obstacle - that said I’m sure we all hope smith does succeed - I certainly could never have envisaged a run like this a couple of months ago

    Bruce was allowed too long and by an incompetent owner - I don’t think finance would come into their thinking regarding smiths future - it’s a results game - I’d be tempted to give him the window and 12 games of the new season and see where we stand but he needs to turn this form around too - if we finish in the bottom 8 then he will be lucky to survive

    Too soon to call for head but not too soon to express concerns about this appalling run since Xmas - he needs to turn things around as if this carries on until the end of the season then his situation may well need to be reviewed .

    John Terry

    JT was with the England rugby squad today swapping ideas and fitness tips , apparently gave an inspirational speech to them . England's rugby players have been given a pep talk by former footballer John Terry before the crunch Six Nations clash with Wales in Cardiff. The ex-England captain spent the morning at the Bagshot training base, exchanging ideas on issues such as leadership and motivation with both players and coaches. "The players were really engaged by talking to him," forwards coach Steve Borthwick told BBC Sport. From the bbc sport app

    Proven premier league failure who got his team promoted on far less than Villa have spent on players , or a manager whose highest finish is mid table in the championship ? yes I think smith deserves more time but to be deriding the likes of jokanovic or Wagner who have achieved promotion already on far less budgets is bizarre . lets worry about who manages us in the premier league when we get there - we need a manager to get us out of this division and hopefully smith achieves it in the right direction .

    Certainly agree they would not be considering sacking him at this point - however he does need to turn this run around before the end of the season or they may well review things should we finish closer to the bottom 6 than the top 6 . ‘For me the jury is still out but after such a bright start the last 2 months have been hugely disappointing

    I don’t see why jokanovic wouldn’t be gettable - yes his style is progressive and good to watch but results wise at this level he’s achieved far more than smith . ‘Smith needs a decent finish to the season - I get the argument that Grealish is missing and these aren’t his players but let’s not forget that Brentford went on several bad runs in his reign there when they couldn’t buy a win and that was with his players and system . His time at Brentford had several highs and lows where they seemed to go on winning runs for 5 or 6 games and then go 7 or 8 without a win hence never making the play offs . i am not calling for his head at this moment but do think he needs to turn this around before the season ends or the board will be fully justified in questioning their appointment

    Would Rodgers take the job is the question .

    The main names I’ve seen touted on here are jokanovic and Wagner and both credible options.

    They had far worse runs than that during his time there too - seemed to often either be on a great unbeaten run or long winless run as our Brentford friends will confirm

    trust in Jesus - he will sort it

    Smith went on several similar spells at Brentford where they went on bad spells without a win - and that was with his players playing his way - he’s had a habit of going on winning runs or losing runs without ever really getting consistency long term

    Probably 10 wins wouldn’t be enough either - this season has truly been a massive disappointment to be in mid February and virtually dead and buried

    Not now mate , boro won away today too which means we are 9 adrift of 6th place with derby and Bristol city both having 2 games in hand and 10 behind boro who still have a game in hand - our season is over regarding the play offs
