  • S, proper football is back and there is talk of a near full house to see Dean Smith take control of his first game. I think it's fair to say that optimism is high. I think it's also fair to say that Dean Smith has probably had his eyes opened to how bit the job really is this week too.

  • I've not written since last week but watch the video below. Don't you just want him to succeed after hearing that? You want him to put his foot down and take grip of everything at Aston Villa and turn it around. I think it will be easier with John Terry and I think he'll be given more time. I hope

  • Dean Smith has been named manager of Aston Villa and John Terry his assistant. Let me be clear from the first paragraph; I like the appointment. But let me also say that it's a romantic one and a strategic one. John Terry will learn and should things not work out as they're supposed to, John Terry will be there to

  • There is a talk of John Terry assisting Thierry Henry and there is talk of Brendan Rodgers and to say neither really excites me, would be just about right. Sure, both offer a degree of you don't know what's going to happen, so as a supporter you enter that world of blind optimism. But neither are going to get a

  • There is a game today so we're going to get to that, but I need to write a little more on Steve Bruce and the open position. And I've also got to say that I'm not actively looking for news or stories on this, it's really just what I've stumbled on. And I'm not stumbling on many stories where a

  • Sky are reporting it and well, as I've written the past couple of posts, I'd not be surprised. Is it right or wrong, there is no definitive answer but there are opinions. And I should write more and I'm going to, but this will probably not mean much other than we have a new manager, pretty much at exactly as

  • I don't know why anyone trusts what they read in the papers or on the websites of those papers. Reporters are paid to write what their publisher tells them and so much of it is just rubbish. I write this because one paper this week has said the manager has two games to save his job. What absolute rubbish. The

  • I wrote last week about how the new CEO would probably like to stamp his authority and that they were probably creating a list of potential replacements, maybe even speaking to them or representatives of them. That was my head. Today, my heart believes it. And I know that the table is tight and that we're three or four games

  • I've had a rough week. I went to bed last Saturday night and woke up with fever. I didn't get out of bed until Wednesday and then it was just playing catch up. I was actually looking forward to a Friday night with a nice bottle of wine. Then I remembered. And we'll get to the football in a minute,
