    Seems a straight forward appointment to me but cant see them doing a great deal.
    Is it true that WM tried to ask last night if wolves fans are worried now villa have mendes links? Because if so i got some rolling on the floor laughing to do .

    DS may or may not be the next best thing since sliced bread but the fact remains their current squad is inadequate for promotion. The appointment of a DOF points decisively to another round of heavy recruitment. The January window will see the mother of all 'rolls of the dice'. Even that might backfire since the EFL can deduct points for flagrant FFP breaches.

    The only role that Yorke goes for is the Villa job when it comes up, the difference between him and Lampard and Gerrard is that they haven't spent years out of the game, and they've both actually worked as youth coaches at Chelsea and Liverpool, as has Henry at Arsenal. I think Yorke has to try and so something similar if he's really serious about becoming a manager, either that or start in the lower leagues, like Joey Barton.

    Smith has to get them up this season or FFP means that they're on a shoestring budget next year.

    Probably why they've gone with him. The likes of Henry won't want to prat around in the Champ with no transfer budget whereas it's all Smith's ever known

    Brentford is a machine with their owners statistical approach I do wonder what ratio was Smith and what was Benham.

    Its no fluke that they've transitioned seamlessly from Rosler to Warburton to Smith.

    Funny you should say that but having once again not been selected for Southgate’s squad I have informed him I do not wish to be considered for any future International squads.

    There have been lots of up and coming managers who don't make the step up when moving to a bigger club. We've had a few of those. Interesting to see how this pans out. Nothing against Smith but still hope there's a good few years of misery for the second ****ty claret and blue half. All together now, mind the gap, mind the gap, aston villa...

    From the BP: "Dean Smith's trusted right hand man Richard O'Kelly is set to join the new manager's Aston Villa backroom staff." Maybe JT needs to bring in his own "trusted right hand man"...Shouldn't your "trusted right hand man" be the assistant manager?
    Gonna be interesting to see how the dynamics of this all works out.

    That's what Swansea said as well, the reality is it's all a load of nonsense, it helps to a certain degree but ultimately it comes down to the manager. Swansea quickly went from good footballing team with a great setup to hoof it and hope after a couple of poor appointments, the setup behind the scenes didn't help them when Clement was sending them out to defend for 90mins. Brentford will drop like a stone unless they get another manager as good as Smith.

    Villa Talk is its usual laugh to read. In a matter of days they've gone from assuming Thierry Henry was a shoe in for the job to getting excited that Richard O'Kelly is joining as assistant to Smith.

    They have to go up this season. They really do. Otherwise they will crash big time... for a long long time!

    So...they appoint a blues fan. They must have spent to cancel Bruce's contract. Terry won't be cheap. They are off the pace, and may feel they need to spend in January. There were rumblings over FFP last year, and bear in mind figures are submitted in March. I would like to hope the powers that be are keeping a close watch on them. Perish the thought that they should also cultivate links with an agent.

    I hope they fit in obscurity for a good few more years yet.

    Boy where did that year go? Just 2 months into the season and we were that good already! Loved that little overhead flick by Neves to set Jota on his way for the 2nd goal. What a season!!!!!! great memories that will live forever.
