The one word angry Aston Villa boss Dean Smith has used to nail the shocker at Wigan


Dean Smith has blasted Aston Villa s ‘rubbish’ showing at Wigan and admits he’s reached his lowest ebb in management.

Wigan ran riot at the DW Stadium with Gary Roberts, Michael Jacobs and Joe Garner firing them to a convincing 3-0 win.

Villa’s players left the field to a chorus of boos with fans aiming chants of ‘you’re not fit to wear the shirt’ and ‘we’re f****** s***’ at Smith’s underachievers.

And the head coach admitted after the match that today’s dire showing has hurt him more than anything he’s previously experienced in eight years of management.

“Rubbish,” Smith said. “It was poor today.

“This is the bottom of where I’ve been in my managerial career and I’ve just said to the players it should be the bottom of where they’ve been in their careers.

“Listen, I’m an Aston Villa fan so to come and lose 3-0 two weeks on the spin is very disappointing.”

Smith’s side trailed 1-0 at half-time after Roberts deservedly gave the Latics the lead minutes before the break.

 

Villa’s 4,499 fans weren’t pleased after a poor first 45 but they were seething at full time – those who hadn’t headed for the exits anyhow.

Smith added: “I’m bitterly disappointed. I didn’t see that second half performance coming, especially after the first.

“There was nothing between the two sides in the first half, apart from the goal. Kalinic has made a good save early on, Tammy’s had a good chance from their mistake at the back, we had good possession, they had good possession, but nobody has really opened anybody up.

“I felt, second half, we just got frustrated and started playing a little bit individually rather than as a team.

 

“The amount of times the ball went out of play and it took (a long time) to come back into play, the amount of times the forward went down just killed any chance of us getting any fluidity in the game. We got frustrated and gave away stupid goals from there.”

Smith played his hand after 63 minutes in bringing on Kortney Hause, Glenn Whelan and Albert Adomah for Tommy Elphick, Birkir Bjarnason and Anwar El Ghazi – but things got worse with Jacobs and Garner making the game safe.

“Sometimes I have to take some responsibility myself,” said Smith. “We couldn’t get any fluidity in the game in the second half so I decided to be a bit radical and make three changes to try and keep the ball in play, which shouldn’t be my job it should be the referee’s. It didn’t work.”
