MOMS #53.5: Dean Smith Reaction - Beyond #OneOfOurOwn Hype

A bonus two-part episode first of all reacts to Aston VIlla's appointment of Dean Smith as Head Coach. David Michael and Chris Budd give their first impressions and play the devil advocate at times to make sure it's not just a hype job.

Brentford fans, as well as being happy with Smith's style of play, have often raised concerns about their gaffer not being able to kill teams off, so can he add a more ruthless mentality to his make-up at Villa? As he'll need to beat his career best 9th place finish! Also, what's John Terry's role in the new look Villa coaching staff?

In the second part of the show, Dan Rodgers joins the duo to answer listener questions - from JT, Villa's lack of continuity from academy to first team, Villa's best back four. Memories of Cahill, Ridgewell, Baker,Clarke, Graham Turner and pyjama bottoms are all visited.

Also, the show features some Villa-isms from Dean Smith himself.

The show is also now available on Spotify.
