The future of Aston Villa manager Dean Smith in the club remains threatened after reports from the national press say he could face the ax.
Smith led Villa out of the league, returning to the Premier League, with two Wembley appearances added for good measure.
But recent results, five defeats in all competitions, have seen Villa slip into the relegation zone, with their maximum power status looking more precarious with each passing week.
After losing to Leicester on Monday evening, Villa now has four games against the teams in the top six, while relegation intensifies.
First of all, it’s Chelsea at Villa Park and the national press has reported a heavy defeat by Frank Lampard, who could see his term ended after less than two years.
His job security has become one of the big talking points in the whole game, with experts and former players all having a say.
Now, Peterborough President Darragh MacAnthony it influenced the story when one of his followers on Twitter asked if he would stay with Smith if he was in charge.
He replied quickly: “At this advanced stage, yes”.
At the Villa there are ten games left to preserve their Premier League status, with three of those appearing in front of their fans – where they have tasted almost all their successes during this period.
