Lose today and he can go for me. He's completely lost the plot and all his mistakes/poor decisions are coming to a head (whether or not he's responsible for all of them is open to debate to be fair). We're nailed on going down with Dean so we have to roll the dice to at least try to stay up.

He should've gone after the Watford no show. It would've at least given the new Manager the whole of January to bring his own players in. What have we done? An ageing keeper and Danny Drinkwater ffs. A disgrace!

Getting relegated again I can take.  Quite enjoyed the Championship.

The crime will be losing Jack.  That will be hard.

The Championship was an utter humiliation. Getting turned over by the Brentfords of the footballing world and having part of our stand closed.

No thanks.

Still backing him
If turnaround then others would support him too

I donít accept the argument that thereís no point in sacking him because of the apparent lack of viable alternatives. There are always options if you are ambitious enough.

Love what the owners have done but if they sit back and watch us go down without decisive action then theyíre not the excellent businessmen I thought they were.

Maybe Purslow is too close to Smith? Is that the issue? He is too invested in the 'Smith project'?

Still support him but his style is exactly this. We win or lose. A couple of draws would see us safer but it isnít working as he has no plan to grind the results we need

If we lose today, and Dean gets the tap on the shoulder, I donít think he can moan.

Would getting rid of him actually make any difference? We look doomed at the moment.

Not now. Too late.

I'd like to say he's hanging in there by a thread, but with Jack saving his bacon and the fact that Purslow (mistakenly) backs him, he is staying.  Big week coming up with Watford on Tuesday and the continued transfer window.

I literally cannot believe all the talk on here of sacking smith mid match, especially when it was only 1-0 at the time. Even if Iím not at a game, like today, Iím totally fecking embroiled in it whether Iím listening to the radio or watching tv. That is a really decent point today, Weíre not cut adrift and that is a very decent point today, I think the anti smith brigade should just reign it in and support the bloody team till the end of the season.

I don't get the perseverance from some fans to keep him. Have they not seen what utter shite his teams have spewed up?

Fair enough, you go with the flow if a manager shows promise, but do any of you TRUTHFULLY think that Dean Smith is going to turn us into a top six side? He didn't even get us promoted from the Championship, Jack Grealish did that.

We should have said thankyou very much in December, and got a manager in with a bit of top level nouse. We're going down, and thanks to FFP, it doesn't matter one iota how much money our owners have.... cos they're not going to be able to spend a dime of it! We'll lose the handful of decent players we have, and we'll be down there for the long haul.   :(

How about supporting instead of being negative. Beat Watford on tuesday and bournemouth in a couple of games time and things will look a whole lot better. When the going gets tough you need some faith.
