"It was a set of labels tonight" – What Dean Smith said about the possession of Aston Villa so far


What do Aston Villa managers say after the games of the season?

We will keep you up to date with Dean Smith's comments after the song throughout the 2017-18 campaign.

This story also includes the words of former boss Steve Bruce and manager of administration Kevin MacDonald.

We start with the answer to Friday's victory over Bolton on the evening.

Jack is disappointed

Aston Villa 2 Bolton Wanderers 0 (Friday 2 November)

"We talked about it (playing deeply) at halftime and I showed him three clips in the half-time.

"When it causes the problems of the opposition is when it comes into that little pocket of the space that the right-back does not want to go and the center of the half does not want to get in.

"I thought McGinn was wonderful, he does these routes all the time, and you have to stop him sometimes and tell him to stay still.

"Jack is disappointed and wants to come and pick up the ball." I told him to be patient and let the other youngsters find him.

"There are moments that come a little too short and it's easy to defend."

Jack Grealish

He kicked everywhere

QPR 1 Aston Villa 0 (Friday 26 October)

"They have to protect Jack Grealish more. It was a group of labels tonight.

"Luongo had five kicks in front of him. He kicked everywhere.

"If the referees mark a yellow card early may stop things."

Both groups were canceled

Norwich 2 Aston Villa 1 (Tuesday 23 October)

"It was wrong if we were not defending two crosses. That was the be-all and the end – all really.

"We had a spell where two players descended – Albert with a crash on his knee, and Tammy with his head.

"We had to make two quick changes, and normally in the area where Tami removes it, they score from the corner.

What happens to Aston Villa?

"I thought we had a good magic after that.

"I was disappointed at the game because I thought it would be a good football game.

"In general, I thought both teams were canceled a little bit. Players can feel a bit unfortunate that they have hit because I do not think they deserve it."

We want to try to get the bums out of the seats

Villa 1 Swansea City 0 (Saturday October 20)

Dean Smith for the welcome received from Holte End

"It was a wonderful touch and it was great to give them their victory today.

"We want to try to get the bums out of the seats here and get them all out here.

"We are grateful for their appearance today.

"It's like one of the biggest crowds of the day, including the Premier League, so it shows what can happen to this football club if we have a plan to move on."

Individual Errors – How Do You Stop It?

Millwall 1 Villa 2 (Saturday 6 October)

Kevin MacDonald on villa errors had to cut

"You can not legislate for international players who make fundamental mistakes, as are most. If I knew the secret, I would take it to a lot of football clubs.

They must try to return where they were in the best moment of their career. This focuses on the first job and everything else in the periphery.

"If you are a defender, keep the cards clean. If you make a pass to start a goal, then good, but the defenders keep clear cards and win you games."

"There is no respect"

Villa 3 Preston 3 (Tuesday, October 22)

Steve Bruce for the fan who threw cabbage to him

Bruce spoke after a fan threw a cabbage to him before he turned out to be his final match Villa.

"I found the whole thing extremely disrespectful.

"To say that it is disappointing is a devaluation of such a club.

"Before we even started …

"The guy we're asking … unfortunately summarizes the society we are currently in.

"There is no respect for anyone.

"Definitely for someone like him I am surprised that he knew what was cabbage."

Where will Aston Villa finish this season under Dean Smith?


"It was tough"

Bristol City 1 Villa 1 (Friday 22 September)

Steve Bruce for the things that went against the villa at the Ashton Gate

"We are disappointed that we did not win because we had one or two terrible decisions to go against us. There is nothing wrong with Tammy's goal and we should be punished.

"The goal we have admitted, be it a mistake or a diversion, was tough for us. It was a nice effort, the first shot and we are back.

"When your trust is not 100%, you have to roll your sleeves and come back to the game and think we did it."

"In some people I will never be the answer"

Villa 1 Sheffield Wednesday 2 (Saturday, September 22)

Steve Bruce for the disappointment of Villa's fanbase

"I can understand the frustrations and disappointments of people, but this is only the fifth time in my two years that we hit here.

"It's difficult at this moment, no matter what I do, in the eyes of some people I'm not going to be right.

"I can not do anything about it, I will stay on the ropes and stay with him, something that will never change with me, I will never leave a challenge – and it is certainly a challenge.

"In some people, I will never be the answer, that's obvious, but the only thing that changes is results, so we need few results." I think we have the core of a very decent team, given time. "

"The smartest people will see through all the nonsense"

Villa 2 Rotherham United 0 (Wednesday, September 18)

Steve Bruce gets a pop in his claret and blue critics

Bruce promised to silence his critics after seeing his troops brushing Rotherham United at Villa Park.

After the heavy criticism of Blackburn, Holte End returned his name during this victory – and Bruce said the "smart" fans admit that it will be a bloody season when the newly formed team arrives.

"The smartest people will see through all the nonsense and will realize that we have the things of a decent team," said Bruce.

"We are Aston Villa and the club's expectations are enormous, I understand.

"But it takes a little bit of common ground because it unfortunately filters the crazy few.

"The overwhelming majority of supporters are just behind what we are trying to do.

"You can feel it when you are on stage.

"If they wanted me out, the stadium would have broken out before the game.

"It was just behind the team and myself.

"This is the most important thing.

"Yes, we had a bloody appearance in Sheffield, it happens.

"Fortunately we are back on the road again and we are now in sixth.

"Hopefully we will close some of them, but I doubt it."

This is the way it is & # 39;

Blackburn Rovers 1 Villa 1 (Saturday, September 15th)

Bruce insisted that he could "understand" the anger he was approached by Aston Villa fans after his recent Blackburn Rovers team.

The songs of "We want Bruce out" and You're getting wacked in the morning & # 39; was heard loud in Ewood Park shortly after Bradley Dack had given Rovers the lead in 15 minutes to go.

The villa grabbed an equalizer with the free kick of the discontinuation of Conor Hourihane.

"It has been a difficult concert in the last 12 months. We had to break a team apart from the one that took us to the play-off final.

"Then, with the problems we had financially, fortunately the new owners have come and breathed life back to the club.

"We were in a desperate way. We managed to work the last three or four weeks of the shuttle window.

"We've brought four or five players and it's like starting over again.

"But the message to all of them is that you need time and constant change means it's always difficult, whether it's managers, coaches and players.

"All the managers who manage Aston Villa will always be under pressure, we have lost one of the seven in the championship, but we are under pressure.

"The thing of the dinosaur will come out"

Sheffield United 4 Villa 1 (Saturday, September 1st)

Bruce came to flirt with parts of the final venue as Villa was at Bramall Lane.

The manager was annoyed as he was asked why he went so wrong – and came out of the fight, insisting that times would get better in the Villa under his leadership.

Bruce said, "We are Aston Villa, so when you hit badly, you have to accept the consequences.

"The thing of the dinosaurs of social media will come out and" you do not know what you are doing ".

"But, I see, I've been four times this league and hit last year's play-off final.

"I think that would encourage me to know what I'm doing.

"We had a terrible beating and you have to accept the flak that goes with him.

"It's part of being in a big club like this.

"If you beat heavily and you put a performance then they will be asked."

"Physically ill"

Burton 1 Villa 0 (Tuesday, August 28)

Bruce burst into the impromptu side of Villa and said their performance made him feel "physically ill" after losing to Burton.

He was completely smoke at the press conference after the game and described his team as "annoying" after the defeat of the Carabao Cup.

Bruce said: "" Sometimes you get a stroke on a draw with a cup when it does not go your way.

"But when you go as if it is a testimony or a friendly game then it bothers me in the handle. In fact, it makes me feel physically ill.

"Right now I have to get the rap because it is my team.

"But it will be a shadow of the group playing on Saturday.

"I would have thought that people who knocked on my door in the last few weeks would have made a better punch than I just saw tonight.

"You could use the word" annoying "."

"He will technically be a great player"

Villa 1 reading 1 (Saturday, August 25)

The villa was returned behind a penalty shootout from Sam Baldock after Ahmed Elmohamady put them in front.

The new signature Anwar El Ghazi, on his debut, provided the assisted Elmohamady headlines.

Bruce said: "He is bright and has good legs. He has to adapt to the game in England.

"He's tired, but I was expecting this. He was only trained with us for the first time on Friday.

"I thought he was doing well, he has a little pace, that's something we needed.

"It's a good debut, you can see it has flashes, technically going to be a great player.

"He has a great pace and when he's in England I'm sure he'll be a great player."

He added: "We should have been ahead and away, but we were not.

"When it reaches 1-0 in the last five to ten minutes, there's always this bit of anxiety.

"Unfortunately, as I say, we have made a mistake and punished. Everyone is disappointed, it could be a really wonderful start".

& # 39;The last thing you want to see is the players to seal the rest,

Villa 2 Brentford 2 (Wednesday, August 22)

Bruce was "saddened" by the stamp of Brentford aggressive Neal Maupay to John McGinn during the 2-2 draw.

Maupai, who scored a goal in every half of the exciting encounter that saw Jonathan Kodjia keep a point for the décolleté and blues deep inside the stoppage time, sealed middleman McGinn as he was on the ground after a fight for the ball with Lewis Macleod.

Referee Jon Miss lost the incident but was taken by the Sky Sports cameras and Maupay was hit by a three-game ban on violent behavior.

Bruce said: "The disappointing thing for me … and listen, the referees have a hard work, and (Romaine) Sawyers can stand on his way but the boy (Maupay) stamped on McGinn and the child scored two .

"That's two that I feel blameless because I should have done more in the play-off final when Grealish was sealed.

"Please, the way we played against ten men on Saturday, maybe we play better with 11!

"But it is disappointing when the boy continues to score two goals.

"I'm sure they will see it.

"The last thing I want to see is red cards, but the last thing you want to see is the players to seal on others."

A favorite crowd & # 39;

Ipswich Town 1 Villa 1 (Saturday, August 18)

Bruce spoke to his beloved John McGinn to continue to improve after he gave another impressive appearance at Portman Road.

McGinn, signed in the summer by Hibs, created the goal of Jonathan Kodjia before Trevoh Chalobah knocked back for Ipswich.

"I said when he came before his debut that he would be a favorite crowd," said Bruce.

"His work again was great. There are things that will need to be improved.

"He broke the game twice and went forward, but he would have to take a pass if I'm extremely critical.

"But he will. We have a very good young player in our hands and he will become even better."

To Kodjia, Bruce said: "I think we saw the old Kodjia back and make him the world of good.

It's always hard when it's injured. In the first half hour I was happy with us. "

"Of course, they were big, huge monsters"

Yeovil Town 0 Villa 1 (Tuesday, August 14)

Bruce cut a disappointed figure after Vikos won 1-0 at Yeovil Town in the Carabao Cup and admitted that his side was lucky.

The late strike of Conor Hourihane was settled, but the claret and the blues were not convincing.

The director said, "It's nice to keep the momentum, but we can not have the pleasure of accepting it, and I'm not.

"I told them that I was disappointed and that I would not accept that. The whole, too.

"If we are brutally honest then we have escaped with one."

Bruce started the youngsters Andre Moreira, Andre Green, Jake Doyle-Hayes and Rushian Hepburn-Murphy, but felt they were fighting to cope with the physical qualities of the League Two side.

"I made some big changes and I put some young girls on the team, but it just shows how hard it is for them," Bruce added.

"It's hard to play in the TV, on a roll, under a group playing for their lives.

"It's the final of their cup and it was right for that.

"Of course, they were big, huge monsters and we find it difficult at times.

"They did a great tie for them and another night they could have gone through.

"I would not have knocked with (Yeovil take the lead).

"Outside players have left much to be desired.

"We have moved away from this, but it was very important for new players to get to know what is really going on in a cup draw.

"They are sampling and it will be better for that."

You will come and take care of yourself, are not you?

Villa 3 Wigan Athletic 2 (Saturday, 11 August)

Bruce welcomed the implementation of Jack Grealish as he played his first fight by shutting down the shuttle window to a fascinating victory 3-2 on Wigan at Villa Park.

The aggressive Grealish, who has been the subject of increased speculation in the last few weeks of the regular window, has finally ended despite the considerable interest from Tottenham Hotspur.

"Given what has happened, I have to say how he and his family did themselves, the way he has gone for his work today was a breath of fresh air," said Bruce after the fight .

"[The way he performed] Today was why Premier League teams want to buy him.

"He overflows that little piece that was there, quite obvious. You came to watch him alone, did not you?

"He is such a natural footballer, you will come and pay good money to come and just watch him.

"The referees have to protect him, that's for sure. He is a free one for all the minutes, kicking pieces from the child.

"But they unfold pieces from him because he is so good, so he has to take it as a compliment.

"We definitely need the referee to be more powerful than today for a yellow card, because if not in this championship, then we are not going to see the talent, because they just get it back."

Birkir Bjarnason's goal won a five-goal thriller, sliding him to the rear to turn in front of the Holte End.

Bruce said: "Today, well … that will bring the supporters back I would have thought – it's not good for me – we made some stupid mistakes that led them back into the game but overall we are back in the two games now and showed λίγο από το πνεύμα που χρειάζεστε μετά από ένα δύσκολο καλοκαίρι για όλους τους ενδιαφερόμενους ».

«Έχω ακόμα δουλειά;

Hull City 1 Βίλα 3 (Δευτέρα, 6 Αυγούστου)

Ο Bruce ήταν ενθουσιασμένος που έβλεπε την πλευρά του να ξεκινάει να πετάει, αλλά παραδέχτηκε ότι υπάρχει ένας μακρύς δρόμος μπροστά στις απαιτητικές εκστρατείες του Championship.

Όταν ρωτήθηκε αν η λίστα των αγώνων μπροστά φαινόταν ευνοϊκή στις πρώτες εβδομάδες, ο Bruce αστειεύτηκε ότι θα είναι ικανοποιημένος μόνο αν είναι ακόμα σε δουλειά μέχρι τον Σεπτέμβριο!

"Έχουμε τώρα την ευκαιρία να ξεκινήσουμε καλά, γιατί ήταν δύσκολη την περασμένη σεζόν", είπε.

"Αλλά το μόνο που βλέπω είναι πότε είναι το διεθνές διάλειμμα και έχω ακόμα δουλειά;"

Ο Bruce πρόσθεσε: "Έχω διαβεβαιώσει οι ιδιοκτήτες ότι θέλουν να πάρουν το χρόνο τους.

"Έχουν ένα σχέδιο που θέλουν να επιμείνουν και αυτό με συμπεριλαμβάνει, γι 'αυτό είμαι πολύ άνετα.

"Αφού παραδέχτηκε τόσο νωρίς, και παραδέχτηκε ένα τόσο φρικτό στόχο, σκέφτηκα" uh oh ".

"Αλλά δείξαμε περισσότερους στόχους να προχωρήσουμε στο δεύτερο μισό.

"Μην κάνετε κανένα λάθος, υπάρχουν ακόμα πολλά πράγματα να κάνουμε, είμαστε ακόμα πολύ μακριά από το που θέλουμε να είμαστε.

"Αλλά ήταν ωραίο να κατεβείτε σε ένα καλό ξεκίνημα."
