  1. It's a fair point, but the performance was very good and a few commented in the match thread that they were satisfied. Before we had scored the winner. On a similar note, if you flipped our season around and we were poor to begin with but excellent in recent weeks, would the frustration be there with Smith?
  2. Speaking to a pretty well spoken Liverpool fan yesterday (I know!!!), who was extremely complimentary of us. Singled out Watkins and cash as fantastic signings, said Watkins should go to the euros. It was his comments on Smith that made me proud as punch to be a villa fan. Talking about how we've come on in the last couple of years, how good the recruitment is, how we play lovely football to watch (even commenting that it hasn't been as good recently) so has clearly watched us a bit. Talked about how it's unique having a genuine fan and captain in charge of the club and what an unbelievable job Dean has done. Even stating he should be in the running for manager of the year. When I said that there's some dissenters toward Smith amongst the villa fan base, he was in complete shock. How come other fans can see it? I was more pleased for Deano than anybody else Saturday night (couldn't sleep I was so buzzing), it was a testament to his belief and philosophy that he stuck to his guns tactically and with the shape and it bore fruit. It clearly what he believes in, we will buy players to fit his way of playing so changing the system unless in drastic circumstances won't happen too often. Would we have won the game with Davis and Ramsey starting, or going 2 up top? We can't be sure either way, but deano got some abuse for the starting XI, he got it absolutely spot on. I thought we were were getting better in recent weeks... And then excellent Saturday night. I hope, and my gut feeling is we will, continue the improved form (2W, 1D, 2L - those two losses to Liverpool and man City and the Liverpool one was a 90th minute goal). A number of posters inconspicuous. Usually very vocal ones. Fantastic work deano, keep proving people wrong. I hope you do.
  3. It's funny isn't it, just a couple of weeks ago, a number of posters expected us to finish 14th. And how disappointed they would be with that after the start. Id be amazed if we finish below 11th now. I said after Liverpool we were starting to look better. Culminating in last night. Hope for it to continue.
  4. Consistent Leeds struggling to a limp defeat without their best player today. Welcome to midtable lads, this is what it looks lads. It might not be glamorous, but it's a damn sight better than the last 10 years!
  5. Except things have been answered, in many informative posts, across many repeated points on many different pages. If you don't agree or those opinions differ to yours, it doesn't mean it hasn't been answered.
  6. @paul514 has an opinion on Koopmeiners. Not sure if it's good or bad though!
  7. Excellent point. Potentially not even missing out on it!
  8. I'm not a social media type but do find these kind of rumours exciting so can you post some of these rumours for me please JV?
  9. Were we good to watch in Jack's last few games? Southampton away, Brighton away, west ham at home come to mind. I've seen you criticise the arsenal win too. Those are the last 4 games before Jack's injury. I won't talk about the game before that (which we lost) away at Burnley because I though we played really well. You're clinging to this theory about Jack, but the disappointing results and performances started before Jack's injury. It's the inconsistencies of a newly built young squad, for me.
  10. Seems like the general consensus is for a 10th - 6th placed finish for next season. I would completely agree with that. Consolidation in these places is huge progress. If we don't see us near that, then I think we would rightly begin to start questioning the manager. Not bloody now! Next season will probably be deans biggest, in terms of pressure on his job.
  11. These 2 along with players like oyarzabal amongst others mentioned and you can really see why what Dean has done isn't enough for some supporters. We were a championship side 2 years ago and now we are expected to be interested in the best young players in the world? Realism on this forum has hit a new low. Disappointed that we didn't go for Bellingham is another one.
  12. Is there a video of the tackle which caused his injury as I still haven't seen it?
  13. What point are you trying to make?
  14. In absolute full troll mode this evening.
  15. Exactly, and someone like that would do it again if they thought they could get away with it.
