Aston Villa: Fans react to Smith’s post-Everton comments

Aston Villa: Fans react to Smith’s post-Everton comments - Aston Villa

Several Aston Villa fans have been reacting to footage of some comments from Dean Smith following the club’s 0-0 draw with Everton on Thursday evening.

Villa defeated the Toffees at Goodison Park earlier this month but failed to find a way through this time around.

Club captain Jack Grealish came on from the bench to make his first appearance for three months, with the point not enough to take Villa back into the top half of the table.

Villa only have one home fixture remaining now, with fans set to return for the visit of Chelsea on the final day.

Villa fans offer mixed reaction

Villa posted the clip on their official Twitter page on Thursday evening, and this is what these supporters had to say in regards to Smith’s comments, with more than one pleading with the boss to cut ties with loanee Ross Barkley.

“Listen to that ambition. Can’t wait for the window.”

“Please, Deano… Pretty please with a cherry on top… send Barkley back to Chelsea and give the kids a chance”

“Again you played with one striker. Watkins on his own is like a lost sheep just like Davis was tonight. You’ve got to have 2 strikers on the pitch otherwise we going to struggle next season scoring goals.”

“Please stop playing Barkley.”
