Nobody wants him to fail and I hope he is a massive success. He made many mistakes earlier for which he was rightly criticized for. However he also made significant changes post break and if we just did that this season with the new players, we will finish comfortably mid table.

Fair play to him holding his hands up on last seasons signings and supporting Suso.  I thought he'd not got who he wanted (Maupay, Benrahma etc) and suffered because of it, but he's not using that as an excuse at all.

That's a great interview I did smile at the mixed metaphor:
Quote
“At times there was just a candle flickering but we managed to get some electricity and heat things up a bit,”

Real measure of him that he passed up the opportunity to criticize Suso.

Tbf I never said anyone wanted him to fail, and yes he made errors, but the fact is there was a minority vehemently calling for his head.

He is just so impossible to dislike, whatever you think of his managerial qualities (and I strongly suspect that that likeability is one of them).

Agree Monty. He is a genuinely nice person who tries his best and doesn't really have a bad word to say about others.

Absolute hero
Have to credit Dean who is a particular favourite of mine.
One of the best fitting coaches I feel we could have.

Now on a 7 match unbeaten run league and cup.
It's 5 matches in the league. Fulham next and another 3 points is hopeful.

Then to see if Deans 'home schooling' has really stuck have a good test at home to Liverpool before international period.

If we remain unbeaten say with 4pts then he really is progressing this team !

Well done Dean Smith I would love us to win a trophy this year and feel Smith wants to try so hard to win one too and be everything for him to get us a cup!

Dean Smith only gets better.
What a guy !

I thought Dean should have been sacked earlier on in the year. I was wrong....
