iPhone : Smith: “We haven’t even thought about playing Liverpool & we'll start building up to it this week. The thoughts were on the first four games, we planned for each game & they’ve gone how I expected them to go. Unfortunately we haven't got the results we probably deserved.” #avfc

iPhone : Dean Smith: “When we play poorly & get battered then I'll say we've got a problem. The lads are standing up to everything & defensively we have been really good in the four games. There are a lot of points to play for. These lads will keep battling away.” [telegraph] #avfc

iPhone : Smith: “They have played three games in 7 or 8 days, we have played 11. And I thought it was an average game because of that. We are the only team to have done four games in 11 days, thank you very much for that.” #avfc

iPhone : Dean Smith: “Going back to the scheduling, four games in 11 days, we are the only club to have done that. You are always going to get injuries because of that, errors and fatigue, and I thought we showed that today.” [bt sport] #avfc

iPhone : Smith: “What gets forgotten is he walked in the door two days before the Tottenham game at the start of the season. There wasn’t an awful lot of pre-season Douglas had with us. Now he’s got a really good understanding of what we are about.” #avfc
