MOMS #64: We Need to Talk About Dean Smith

It's now just two wins in his last 13 games for Dean Smith at Aston Villa. Is it time to be concerned? Villa now will realistically spend a fourth consecutive season in the Championship. Will there be any more? I think it's time we talk about Dean Smith.

The second part of the latest MOMS podcast dedicates itself to a big Dean Smith debate, as we discuss recent rather unimpressive performances and results, and look back to signs of concern from his managerial career, so far. Does he ultimately have a lack of pedigree for the Villa task? Does he just need time and a bit more luck? Have some fans been providing false hope about him on social media?

Before David, Dan and Chris get into all matters DS, they also look at the recent games against the Baggies and Smith's former club, Brentford. They also share their thoughts on the new 'Part of the Park' marketing slogan, host a mini 'Conor Hourihane Show', pay respects to Gareth Barry, and address racism and toxicity at Villa Park.

Also, outside of the VillaVerse, we look at crazy Italian games, dissolving Franco-Welsh relations and the conclusion of Spygate.
