Those were the first two games Id attended at Villa Park for a while after living in Somerset due to work. God knows how many of us were crammed into the Holte End for the Man Utd game but what a day that was.

Our record has to improve at some point! I trust Smith to at least try and win.

Not sure mentioning Southampton's home record was such a good idea.  Comments like that have a way of coming back and biting you on the arse.

Especially when our away record is diabolical.

Bit silly from Dean. Do the talking on the pitch. These things do not help.

Yep, pretty much always.

Then again, it may help to add a tad more pressure on them. I hope the latter but fear the former.

Spurs have taken more points than anybody bar Liverpool since Mourinho took over. They were incredible fortunate against us.

I'd love us to batter both Man United and Arsenal.
wouldn't we all - however the reality is we couldn't do that when we were a decent side let alone the team that can't beat Bournemouth home or away - I admire your optimism however
.
They are both totally different propositions now though.  Really should be nothing to fear.

A week before a cup final ? Thats not going to happen. He is here for the rest of the season, at least.

Yeah, I wouldn't have minded getting rid after the last Southampton game. You are never going to play brilliantly every week at this end of the table, but feel he has done enough to keep his job until the end of the season now, barring a hammering next week coupled with a disastrous run of league results.

For me if we go down, his position should be looked at and maybe time to make a change. If we stay up and he has money, look again at Christmas

He got a free pass this season because of the promotion. I expect the free pass expires at the end of the season.
