Yes itís good but all of this Roy of the Rovers is starting to get on my nerves. Aston Villa is bigger than any fan or manager. Thanks Dean but for Gods sake come on. An unpopular view yes I know.

Sums most of this up rather eloquently.  Normally when the Villa have parted company with a manager I've viewed the future with excitement yet to hopefully come, not today, at the moment I actually feel as though I don't give a fuck.  It won't last, we'll see who comes in and it will be back to normal, as normal can be.

For me, a lot of it has been about Deano being a Brummie, I'm a Brummie and I feel this one deeper than most of the others as I'm sure he does.  Football management is a world of inevitables and unfortunately Deano's time had come.  At the end of the day, I feel certain Deano only wants what's best for the Villa and will be disappointed that it couldn't be achieved under his stewardship.

A good passionate piece Dave.

An unpopular view because it completely lacks empathy.

Nice work, and i agree  the Grealish saga did untold damage to Smith and the club.

Great article. The last point really stuck with me. Who is the last manager to leave Villa in a better position than when he started?

Little, possibly.
