The international break may have brought the Championship to a grinding halt, but that doesn’t mean that nothing is happening in the second-tier of English football.

To the contrary, it’s proving to be perhaps the busiest international break in recent memory, especially for fans unfortunate enough to be Aston Villa supporters.

The Villains decided to sack Steve Bruce earlier this month after a run of bad results, and after days of speculation, he was finally replaced on Wednesday evening. Brentford boss Dean Smith was the man chosen, with John Terry set to be his assistant.

It’s certainly a bold appointment, and it will certainly be interesting to see how well or, indeed, how poorly they do.

Unsurprisingly, it’s a move that has got a lot of Blues talking online, and it’s fair to say that they aren’t too impressed. Indeed, many of the Birmingham City faithful aren’t expecting much from the appointment, and they’re expecting their rivals to struggle.

Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…

  • Smith’s talent as player and management is small clubs primarily in the lower divisions. He is a proper football bloke but how will he sit with John Terry? He has already appointed Richard O’kelly (Ex Blues I think) as coach so what is Terry going to do? Grealish’s moral guidance? What every he does he wont do it cheaply. For a club who was going bust three month ago they are heading to FFP big trouble.

  • Birmingham City – the only set of ‘fans’ in the world predicated entirely on their spitting hatred of their neighbours. The only ‘fans’ in the world who would take relegation to avoid their neighbours winning something. Hooliganism is the only thing they are good for.

    • You won’t catch a Birmingham supporter wearing Blackburn or any other team shirts wanting thier team to lose so their rival’s go down. But that is what you lot did. The sadist fans in Football. The most heated club in England. With the most deluded people in the Midlands.

    • Small heathen big prick, you gota be joking right , what happened not too long ago when you horrible little fans started fighting among each other , or back further when ur fans wore Blackburn shirts wanted your own team to LOSE so we would go down , you thick Knut run along and come back with a valid point you little rat

  • The #announce promotion tweet and the ‘right management team to take us where we belong ‘ statements from villa fans shows how arrogant villa fans are. You are in the championship because you weren’t good enough in the EPL. You are where you belong. Your history when Jack the ripper was walking the streets of Whitechapel mean nothing. You’ve won nothing for 40 odd years. Dean is a good manager but it will be interesting to see how he handles big expectations and big egos.

    • Brentford’s tackle coach as a lot more to do with how they play than Dean Smith he is the Brentford fans favorite to get the Job.
