That's good stuff, where was this?

Conservative Club in Great Barr, for 120 people (sold out tickets to capacity). I think Dean’s family lives around there, his Dad did my grandparents’ patio or extension.

I got my info from Villareport, but they just posted someone else’s report and tried to claim it as inside knowledge.

Oh no he's a not a Tory is he? I'm not having that. 

I doubt it, he hasnt had much nice to say about Brexit. But regardless him going to speak at a local Conservative club doesnt mean he is one. Hell I have had a pint at a Tory club as a guest and I am as left wing as they come.

But if he votes for that party then so be it. There are plenty of Conservatives who dislike the current direction of their own party, same with Labour to be fair.

My Dad was as red a socialist as they come. He used to use his local Conservative club, purely because they had the best snooker tables. He said they used to come round every election and ask if they could rely on his vote - and he cheerfully told them to **** off.

I was kinda sorta joking. I don't think our head coach should engage only with people of the left in any case, that's not his role. 

I do find it interesting though, it's an unusual venue for a football club representative to play. They generally avoid potentially divisive stuff like that. Unless you're Klopp and you know you're on safe ground.

Love this attitude. I genuinely think this approach will see us win more than lose. He’s not naive with it, he’s tactically astute enough to go and try to win games in different ways.

Dean Smith did a Q and A tonight, my family went. Work permits sorted for Doug  and Marv, they’ll be in Germany, and we are looking for a striker. He can’t recommend that the club buy Maupay at Brentford’s asking price and we overpaid for Mings because it was like having your son held to ransom.

So, is this story a load of bollocks? And if so, why post it?

No it’s true! Can’t find any info about the actual event so I’m guessing it was just kept local word of mouth, but here’s some mentions of the Club, DS and the Scott Arms ran by his uncle:

OK. But what's stuff about Douglas Luiz being with the squad about? I thought he was still in Brazil?

I suppose it would have to do. Be disappointed not to get the FA Cup as well.

Everything I said was true apart from the joke about VillaReport 😁

I'm expecting Luiz to take part today from what I was told!

That won’t happen, Doug was training in Brazil last night.
