I think he will get the sack come the summer if we go down.

 Its hard to justify him staying on spending 150m and relegating us. I think we look a lot wrse than we did last year tbh
Be interested to know which game you were watching today??

Sorry i didnt word that properly i meant tk aay defensively.

There is no question we are a lof worse this year. The defending today as a lot of games this year has been a complete an dutter shambles

You canít compare this year to last year for fairly obvious reasons.

I have my doubts about Smith but actually think if we go down heíll be kept for the promotion push and if we stay up itís not a certainty the board would stick with him if itís a tight finish.

This time last year we lost 2-0 at Fulham before getting a point at home to Preston (who had over 20 shots against us).  We ARE a better side than last year, we're just playing teams of a much MUCH higher quality.

Wrong season, that was 17/18!

This time last year we were coming to the end of a 2 win in 13 game run after losing a game at home 3-2 with the winner coming in the 94th minute after a defensive blunder.....

Have to hope history won't repeat iself.

This time last year we'd just lost 2-0 at home to Albion. I hope history does repeat itself.

It worked out well in the end but ultimately losing to Leeds last minute heralded a near three month winless run where we were awful in most of those games. We simply can't afford that same sort of feeling sorry for ourselves feeling but a few of our players looked broken at the end so not hopeful as this club hasn't recovered well from setbacks over the last decade.

Horribly defeatist comments from Smith in his BBC WM interview.

His substitutions made us worse again.

His subs made sense to me, most wanted Drinkwater off for Nakamaba, AEG was subbed because of the whack he took so he was replaced with like for like considering we were creating a fair bit, and Samatta is most likely not match fit so subbed him for another striker. You could say he could have gone more defensive when subbing Samatta but if that hadn't worked and Spurs scored he'd have been absolutely slaughtered for leaving us with no strikers on the pitch at home.

God knows why he took Samatta off. He was giving them something to think about, then that Swansea reserve comes on and touches it once as heads the ball back into our own area and that was about it. Trezeguet was his usual rubbish self as well.

Add AEG to that who had a physical presence up there too.

I agree. Baston looked really poor and almost gifted spurs a goal. Offered nothing, y strange sub.

His moaning about var was stupid. He should be dealing with these amateur defensive errors that are costing us most weeks.

You think? I canít see them sacking him if we stay up. It will be a huge gamble to stick with smith if we go down. I also am worried about what type of players he would go for after the shit signings of baston drink water and Wesley

Maybe he'll sign shit players like Mings, Samatta, Guilbert and Heaton.

Jesus, Baston has played five minutes of football and is a shit signing? He was also on a free as we clearly didn't have more funds after splashing out on Samatta and before that Wesley in the CF position.
