    Finally one of these 'big' clubs make a sensible appointment. John Terry as his assistant. I rate Dean Smith highly. He is a Villa fan as well.

    I hope other clubs don't start appointing fans as manager. We could end up with Dai Hunt.

    Agreed. I was kind of hoping they'd go for Chris Wilder as I've got a bet with a Sheff Utd fan this season and he's unfortunately doing the business yet again.

    I wanted Smith before we got Warnock. We've done fine of course but Smith is way more progressive. Brentford play some lovely football. This was despite Smith not always having full control of transfers there and losing his better players most years. It will be interesting to see what he does with a decent budget for once. People are questioning John Terry being appointed as his assistant, but I read that he was a very popular member of the squad last year, he impressed the others with his attitude and dedication to training. He won the squad over and was a leader so that looks like a good move as well.

    Poor Brentford. Looked the real deal this season. I hope they can keep up a promotion push without Smith.

    Sensible appointment. His teams have always played good football and punched above their weight.

    Different challenge at a big club like Aston Villa with their expectation so be interesting to see how he copes.

    Not sure about the appointment of Terry as his number 2 though. Feels like It has this potential for Smith be undermimed there.

    Like Smith but can’t stand the self entitlement of Villa fans so I’m caught in 2 minds how I want this to play out.

    Pressures on big time at villa they got to go up this season or they will hit FFP next according to Simon Jordan on talk sport who said he looked closely to investing in them earlier in the year.
