Before we played well and ended up losing games. Now we are just playing awful and losing games.  Not a good place.

I said on the match thread.  I know talk of sacking Dean is seen as lynching territory but you only have to look at today’s opposition to see what a well drilled, tactically aware manager can get from a promoted team.  And they’ve spent £100m less than us.

Try saying sack Smith and you voted Conservative.

Unless we step up over Christmas Smith will be gone in early Jan. If he can't cut it in the PL then the owners will take action with time for purchases. We were losing but playing well now the latter has gone.

Shower of shite. Villa, why do you hate me so much?

After being on the losing side all week I'm chucking in the towel and will be voting Tory and supporting Liverpool from hereon in.

Southampton only need a point at home to West Ham and we're in the bottom three.

Watch them take 3.

Way it's going they'll somehow get 4.

Not much fun being the whipping boys in the PL  and hard to see how a £130m spend has done anything to make us look even vaguely competent. The Southampton game is a must win.

Very Poor but what is more worrying is not doing the basics correctly. We give the ball away constantly when in possession and the lack of tracking runners today was utterly disgraceful. Fleck ran across the whole pitch for the second goal and nobody bothered to track him. Luiz could have gone with him but just left him. I would love to see the running stats for both teams.

The midfield balance is all wrong as teams have all the time in the world to just play it around in there just dropping into pockets of space allied to the fact we offer no support to the centre forward. Wesley is not good enough in that for a big man he is bullied off the ball too often but he needs support.

I just hope we can get a result somewhere to build some confidence.

Being a Villa fan is not enough of a qualification to be our manager.  Looks like a bad move.

Shocking.  Where to start with this mess.

Firstly wesly. Who the hell scouted him and thought he alone can get us goals?? For a big guy he is so weak and shit. A absolutely poor player who is not cut out for this level.

The team selection. I mean startibg lansbury what the hell was the logic in that???
 Completely flopped and a bad gamble that didnt pay off.

Defence.  What a mess. Just so poor leaving holes every where.

As usual smith leaves it too late to make any changes and games over.

Then the pen. What the actual fuck. Who thoyght grealish taking would be a good idea?? Seriously dreadful. Grealish decides ti ibsread of choose a bloody a corner and keep ut low tries to go for the .aster pen and lets us down

A massive  and hugely disappointing day that is not good enough

Utter rubbish...we are devoid of confidence and desperately need a win soon.

I'd take your hand off for a confirmed 17th place finish right now because this form suggests much, much worse is coming.

It seems the Dean Smith experiment is destined to end in tears, sooner rather than later...is Curbishly or Pardew available ?

I think Dean Smith is out of his depth here. Probably league one / championship level is more his.
That’s 10 defeats now and I see no improvement whatsoever. The persistence in calling on Wesley will cost him his job. He’s failing to motivate the players, organise them into a cohesive unit and not utilising his squad. The football is awful to watch and he’s not ruthless enough e.g. dropping Mcginn. Grealish isn’t working out wide, push him central further forward, flood the midfield! Keep the fucking players on their toes! You need to show brass balls to make big calls.

Can’t see where the next point will come from never mind win.

We are in deep, deep trouble. This result was entirely predictable.

The next 3 games are beyond massive. Adapt or die, Dean because we just cannot, cannot sleepwalk towards relegation

Someone on here said Jack got us promoted last season.  I’m now tending to agree.
