Still not worrying.

Pissed off after Saturday? Yes.

But we've just had the sort of run of games that would have any team in difficulties.

We really mustn't give in. There were always going to be some torrid spells and results, let's give the first team a break, let the reserves play against Liverpool and take it from there.

I think he's maybe avoided a rough ride in recent weeks because of the fact he's a Villa fan, if he wasn't I think people would have turned quicker - regardless of him getting us up.

This first half is like it was under Remi Garde. it's lifeless, no fight, no leadership, no organisation, basics all wrong - the players just don't seem to be as interested as they was a few months ago. I'm worried for Smith, there's no plan B.

Big half time talk.

Iíve been squarely in the not worried camp but that first half was horrific.

Extremely worried now. Wouldn't mind if we were losing playing well. Smith needs a fucking idea fast, but appears to have zero.

It will all be fine ........Dean is one of us so he can't fail :(
The new contract or pay rise, whatever it was, seems to have been somewhat premature
It would seem that neither the club nor this coach were ready for the step up

As it stands there are not three teams worse than us in this league

I agree with you, TV.

It's very worrying.

100%. That first half had relegated stamped all over it.

If we don't even look like turning this around in the second half, then we're right in the shit.

I'm worried for Boxing Day now and we're only at HT here!
