You have no idea what the new "strategy" was in replacing Bruce. You have seen speculation in the media about other managers the same as the rest of us. For all you know the Smith/Terry duo was their aim from day one. If you do have some inside knowledge on the new owners feel free to share it but you will be asked to provide some kind of evidence by everyone on here.
Stop it please it was just a passing comment on a discussion forum. I didn't realise I was standing up in Court:)

Back to the pitch, Smith has a favourite role and player in the ten position, Romaine Sawyers. Sawyers followed him to Brentford from his time at Walsall and heís a player that is pivotal to how Smith likes to attack. A number ten that controls the game on the edge of the oppositionís box.

And now he has inherited potentially the most exciting and able player in that position in the league!

Jack must be chuffed reading that

https://twitter.com/davidanderson_1/status/1051027246109118466?s=21 Worth a read on Dean Smith Villa fans, from a Brentford fan in peace.

I have the same reservations about Dean Smith - in that his performances might just be as much down to how Brentford operate as a club as much as his managerial skills.

The rest of it is plain bollocks though - Bruce was shite and should have done better with the squad at his disposal. Outdone by a one dimensional Cardiff side and a filthy Fulham side in the play off final. Both are getting found out in the Prem right now - absolute garbage teams.

Finally, this paragraph made me LMAO:

'I do see a similarity in how Smith may use the ineffective Grealish but that is probably giving the Villa hierarchy too much credit in the foresight department. Villa do have a player that with the right coaching should be devastating and he can mature into as an effective weapon as Sawyers has been for Brentford.'
