Smith took over Villa when the club was in the low Championship position of 15th place.
After guiding Villa out of the Championship by setting a club record of winning 10 games and winning the final play-offs in 2019, Smith hasn’t looked back since.
Villa spent most of the 2019/20 Premier League campaign floundering in hopes of breakthrough until Smith appeased his staff to set another record, by becoming the first team to survive the division with more than six points to make up for just four games remaining.
The following campaign, Villa recruited well and Smith landed his main targets, Ollie Watkins, Matty Cash, and Emiliano Martinez. An incredible start to the season saw Villa beat Liverpool 7-2 at Villa Park, with victories against Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea, and many more to follow.
While a spot in the top six leagues will eventually escape Villa by May, in this term, there is a real belief that Smith could orchestrate a more memorable night under the light and challenge for the European. football again.
Villa supporters praised Smith for a good three years as Villa gaffer.
Rest : Managing us through a global pandemic gives us his all, no one I would want more than Deano to lead us through it all from the Championship to the Prem League in the middle of the table, big season or two before him now to show that he can lead us to Europe and a trophy would be nice.

@ J4M45_AVFC : Didn’t get all the hype for the first time, I just thought Jack was the one who got us up. But I was especially impressed over time by his range of tactics and getting presentations from some sure average players. Hoping for another 3 years of improvement under him.
