With few Aston Villa players coming out unscathed from the defeat to Norwich City yesterday evening when it came to the more colourful on social media, plenty of fans have taken the time to show that the mad few actually know what they are on about.

Dean Smith’s post game interview was posted up by the clubs’ social media side last night and as you can imagine it garnered quite a few thoughts – as did other threads.

I have no idea if some were trying to lighten the mood with ‘Smith Out’ comments, my guess is they probably were, but others took the opportunity to precis the exact problems our new gaffer has to deal with and repeated this is not going to be fixed overnight and fans will need to swallow plenty of disappointments before we see more than momentary improvements.

I don’t think it’s unfair to mention there were also some constructive comments criticising the performance and Smith’s choice of substitutions as they didn’t work on the day and that’s abundantly clear to all, but if he’s going to be a success here he’ll learn from that and demand more and if they can’t meet his demands, they’ll be gone.
