Fair comment SHQ ........ I want to see him succeed but we can't afford any sentimentality towards him because he is a nice guy and Villa Man
I never want us to lose any game but I would forego cup wins for league victories over our closest rivals right now

I wouldn't be doing anything rash. Let's stick with the guy and see if he can turn round the current slump we are in. He's earnt that at least.

Yep.  Let's see how the next three league games go and where we are after that.

So far though we're the only team in prem yet to play either Norwich or Southampton. They are both below us for a reason. We beat one of them 5-1 away from home two months ago.


So we haven't played Norwich yet but have beaten them, can I have some of what you're smoking/drinking please!

Ha have to say it's a good job I'm about as far from being famous or newsworthy as you can get. Never mind penning an autobiography I need a proof reader just for my posts on here that I have to constantly edit because of repeat words used or wrong use or adjectives etc.

I meant to say Watford and Southampton but also put in the Norwich 5-1 game.

Anyway we have yet to play two of the weakest teams in the league so let's see if DS can boost our points tally after playing them like Pellegrini and Marco Silva did which kept them in their jobs for a bit longer.

(proof read over).

I'm sorry, it was just too tempting.

Assuming he realises he has to buck his ideas up, or change them, I agree.  But how long does he get?

Is the Simpson's reference due to the fact it appears Dean Smith struggles in away games and is therefore considered a "Homer"
I'll get my coat :)

I still think he's fine. There are so many mitigating factors that he deserves a long while yet.

I like Dean Smith and I hope he turns it around but I am not sure there are that many mitigating factors. Did we back him in the summer, yes. Have we been decimated by injuries, no. Is it okay that we are below Sheffield United, Palace, Newcastle, Burnley, Brighton, Bournemouth and West Ham?

I think the club will keep Dean even if we are relegated I just hope it doesn’t turn out that way, there must be a limit to continuity.  I have noticed recently he has referred to himself as coach, I just wonder if he is distancing himself from the responsability  of new player signings.

Losing faith quickly in Smith. Just totally inflexible, making the same mistakes over and over, dreadful game management plus we look far less fit than other teams. This is his domain and we’re constantly coming up short.

Needs 7 points in the next 3 games or he’ll be in massive trouble and I really won’t gave much sympathy.

His title is head coach, not manager.

The answer is yes to your last question. All of those clubs with the exception of Sheffield United are established Premier Lge clubs, we are not. We are not half way through the season yet and I’m sure we’ve all figured out that there are no easy games. Sheff U will eventually go through this kind of spell as will the others with the possible exception of Liverpool. Two wins and we’ll be pushing the top ten.
