Are we going to have three assistant coaches?   What happens to O'Kelly and Terry?

If we go after any Watford players at least we should be assured that we go for the ones who have best attitude as CS has worked with them previously

Good appointment.

An old boss of mine (Baggies fan) used to date Shakespeare back in the 1980s.

It was the era of the Big Hair, she said he got through more spray than she.

I'm just picturing our new coach with a can of hairspray in his barnet and a hint of eye-shadow, dancing to the Human League at some Halesowen nightclub circa 1983. Keep feeling fascination!

He’s been here a couple of weeks and we haven’t scored a goal.

Mixed on this as will be interested in what he'll be bringing . On one hand he has a wealth of experience dealing with relegation battles and the other the famous Leicester title win with a major contribution as well as experience as leicester manager.

Time and again though he seems to have worked with the lower positioned Prem teams however I think as Smith knows his so well he can add to the coaching and be someone to triaging the squad for an improvement.

The concerns are he's never worked with Smith JT or O'Kelly. And Shakey hopeful shakes things up and he just recently was part of the Watford operation that collapsed and he and Pearson are a right pair.
Don't know what he'll be doing to players but hopefully any initially impact is both long lasting positively rather than any abject failure or disillusionment with old school methods.
Good luck Craig and welcome !

Oh and to add if JT was the owners and /or CEO say so then Shakespeare very much Dean Smith input we would imagine and that's good for Dean to be given that responsibility.

Even with Shakespeare Villa fan status and knowing Deano and O'Kelly I do hope he fits into the Smith philosophy as last thing players need is too much a change of style

Shakespeare was coach under both Allardyce and Pearson as well as Ranieriall 3 aren't interested in possession based football.
However they all possessed abilities to beat teams on occasions with the right aptitude and making use of set plays or counter attacking and direct football.

I guess it's very different to Smith footballing philosophy though it adds a great dimensions to get current squad to be more robust and use the ball wisely .
I do think there is a different football philosophy from what Dean and Villa want to Shakespeare coaching set up so I hope it somehow this fushion of football coaching styles integrates the patterns of play and a more polished and premier league wise player performances within squad
Time will tell.
