We have far to many midfielders not putting a shift in . We need wingers to track back and people to work and press Ball ds has to put this right or we will get relegated

Purslow is well aware that he got some one in to buy the players. And it’s failed badly he should also be held accountable 

Smith isnt going anywhere. This side will fall apart before this board sack him. The Cup Final glosses over the non show this season. I said in the Southampton match chat that too many times

29/11/2019 : Dean Smith has today signed a 4 year contract extension, running to 2023. No word as yet regarding John Terry and Richard O'Kelly.

I hope Dean Smith is here for many years to come and I'd expect Richard O'Kelly to remain as his sidekick as for John Terry I expect he'll be off at some point in the next year or two to start his own managerial career. I wish him well...accept for when he's up against The Villa.

Not sure what i think about a four year deal. I like what Smith is doing but i feel it is a big gamble for someone who is still learning at this level himself.

Agreed, last time we did this we gave Paul Lambert a big bumper contract and we know how that turned out.  We are two results away from being in trouble or likewise pushing for the top six.  

Personally would have waited to see how the season panned out before handing out a four year deal.

Contracts don't mean very much these days and I'm sure there is all sorts of clauses. Smith has the makings of one of the best managers in the country in my opinion so why not try and provide as much stability as possible within the club. I like the way it was done, no major fuss. If you weren't a Villa fan I doubt you'd have even heard of this contract extension. 

The club appears to have a very clear vision and for the first time in a long time we are running really smoothly with no silly promises.

Seems odd timing, I can only assume that it's due to other clubs sacking players like Apollo suggested. 

I'd have waited until the end of the season personally. 4 years is a long time and you can clearly tell Smith is new in the premier league. He'll make a lot of mistakes which is to be expected for his inexperience at this level

We should have just given him a bonus or a pay rise for getting us promoted.

Although i dont disagree with what you are saying - as markymark said - we have been hurt before. Maybe as a fan i am being over cautious.

I know i have said i was surprised by it but i wonder if it has something to do with the managers? Similar with Sterling who wont sign a new deal at City until Pep signs.

Could be. Its a massive signal of intent that's for sure.
