Well done Dean, I wasnít sure you had it at times last season very happy to be wrong. Keep proving me wrong.

Well he's managed to keep the confidence high among the players from the end of the last season - probably was the turning point for the team that, considering we couldn't buy a win from Feb to July. Now we look like we can see off the newly promoted dross and give the also-rans a game as well. Add to that the signings and getting key players to sign-up, and you have to feel optimistic the way things are going under Smith.

I could be wrong but I think this is the first time we've gone 6 top flight games unbeaten since the start of the McLeish season (W2 D5).

Smith has had a great spell, Iím so pleased for him. Shame this thread sometimes had a whiff of the Alan Partidge needless-to-say-I-had-the-last-laughs about it. But mainly, just pleased heís got almost everything right since lockdown. Good on him.

Maybe we're seeing the influence of quality coaching now Shakespeare has been added to the bunch.

It does seem very reminiscent of SGT's time when we struggled to stay up first season and then kicked on. I'm not saying we're gonna finish 2nd or anything, but most of our players took a kicking from the premier in terms of the step-up in quality last season. You either adjust to it or fall by the wayside. We seem to be adjusting.

Good stuff so far, looking forward to what sort of plan we come up with for Liverpool.

We played alright in the two games v them last season and one of them was without Grealish so confident we'll give them a good game although they've looked pretty good tonight.

Looks like a shrewd appointment.

That's a bit tame.

Well he's certainly had an affect on the defence since him came in. Last year was a comedy of errors.
