Plenty of Aston Villa fans have been giving their thoughts to Dean Smith’s reaction to Sunday’s defeat to Tottenham on social media.
Villa, who were once again without captain Jack Grealish, suffered a 2-0 defeat to Jose Mourinho’s men at Villa Park.
Worrying Villa form without Grealish
Is Dean Smith getting the most out of Aston Villa's squad?
Villa fans react
The club shared Smith’s post-match thoughts late on Sunday night on their official Twitter page. He addressed his views on the performance, as well as Grealish’s absence in the clip, which has been viewed more than 24,000 times.
The manager insisted that there were some “good bits” from his team and was pleased with their play up to the final third. He added that players “have to look in the mirror” at spurned opportunities and goals conceded, and that he and the coaching team are “always taking lessons” from poor results.
This is what these supporters had to say to the footage, with some not happy with the comments from the Villa boss.
“Get him out of my club. Poison”
“Sounds defeated to me”
“Do something different Deano, the fans know your subs before you make them. Surely the opposition are too”
“Lampard in before it’s too late”
“I don’t have to listen to it to know what he said and know I will be bored by what he said. It’s been the same for weeks now.”
