If we don't even reach 30 points (which looks a very strong possibility now) I think he'll be sacked.

We were on 25 points after beating Watford on January 21st ffs. And have winnable games straight after.

Poor poor poor.

Getting to the final has ruined us. 25 points with 14 to play should have been relatively comfortable. I've said it before but Smith doesn't know how to draw a match and that's crucial in the Prem

The home matches are where it's at now.
That game in hand v Sheffield utd and a rousing performance ,some how , vs Chelsea and still fighting chance.
Leicester didn't even have to do so much to win the match tonight which was most frustrating.
Other than the first 10 minutes and a period before the 3rd goal Villa never in it.
However playing the 3rd best team and that was a match which was difficult to get something from.
Liverpool away will be the other perhaps
Apart from that the rest of the fixtures are down to villa and how they perform

Only one question. Where's all the "rousing" and "fighting" coming from?

Must be outside the ground because it's certainly not happening on the pitch.

Staying up was paramount. I am so angry with the club. I would have happily gone out in round two of the league cup just to prioritise survival. Staying up was everything-

Anybody that watched our last 4 league games, Bournemouth, Spurs, Southampton and Leicester and still thinks we’ll stay up needs sectioning. 3 of arguably our worst performances of the season and the other we gifted a win. All of those teams were and are on terrible runs accept when they play us.

We are genuinely awful.

I really don't think getting to the league cup final has significantly hurt us.

Ultimately we've stopped trying in away games (not that the away form has been great all season) and that's pretty unforgivable in this situation.

My thoughts exactly. Some of the performances of late really have been down there with anything the class of 2015 could muster. Absolute dog shit.

We conceded exactly two goals a game on average that season, and so far we're on course to match that.  Well done Dean, it takes some going to be as crap as that.

Do you really, really think we are going to start winning games? Why should we beat Sheffield United? They are a good team. We are going down because of inept performances against teams around us, with the exception of Norwich away. Watford and Southampton should have sealed his fate. Dean should have been sacked then. Before the “keep the faith” brigade start, oh yes it’s my fault because I walked into the ground last night not believing we would win, because as fans we can mind control the game!!! Dean Smith (this season) is not a Premiership manager and at the end of the season Aston Villa will not be a premier league club.

I’ve watched Norwich more than I’m comfortable with this season and you get the impression that they are a little unlucky to be bottom, that they are one or two players away from being a reasonable side.

We have no shape, allow teams to completely dominate us, give space in the box and are completely one dimensional in attack.
I have zero belief in this side.

This is it, we’re disorganised in defence, passive in midfield, and don’t appear to have a plan in attack. Those are three pretty critical failings and it’s why we’ll get relegated.
