    ASTON VILLA 2-1 LEGIA WARSZAWA: Moreno’s back, baby!

    ASTON VILLA 2-1 LEGIA WARSZAWA: Moreno’s back, baby!

    Our Cole and Tom got together after the final whistle at Villa Park to reflect on Aston Villa’s fourth straight win in the UEFA Europa Conference League, with Unai Emery’s side beating Legia Warszawa 2-1. The lads also look ahead to Bournemouth on Sunday and a jam-packed fixture list in December.

    WHAT DO WE DISCUSS?
    On what can only be described as a wild evening at Villa Park, what did the lads make of Aston Villa’s fourth straight win in the UEFA Europa Conference League?Squad rotation certainly hasn’t been a surprise when it comes to this competition, but what does this lineup tell us about Unai Emery’s squad management heading into an extremely busy December fixture list?No Watkins, no problem! With the striker missing out on Thursday’s action due to a slight injury, does this sort of problem come at the perfect time considering Bournemouth are next on the league fixture list for Villa and there’s no real urgency to play him until December 6th against Manchester City?MORENO’S BACK, BABY! How impressive was the Spanish left-back on Thursday and what sort of rotation could we see between him and Lucas Digne in the coming weeks?With Villa going top of Group E, our destiny is in our hands; how do we think Unai Emery will approach the Zrinjski match on December 14th?More minutes for Jacob Ramsey, Leon Bailey almost scores a stunning goal, Bournemouth next, and the lads have a crack at predicting how December may unfold for the mighty Villa - enjoy the ride everyone!All of this and so much more!

    TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 1-2 ASTON VILLA - Welcome to the top four!

    TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 1-2 ASTON VILLA - Welcome to the top four!

    Our Cole, Simon, and Dom dusted off their microphones after yet another international break and return to reflect on a vital away win for Aston Villa as Unai Emery’s men beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 on Sunday.
    You can listen for FREE on Acast, Apple Podcasts, and Spotify - dig in!
    WHAT DO WE DISCUSS?
    Well, that’s a lovely way to return to action following an international break, isn’t it?How are we all feeling after a massive away win?From an opening ten minutes that could have resulted in a 2-2 scoreline, to Douglas Luiz teeing up Pau Torres for the leveller before the break, what can be made of Aston Villa’s performance on Sunday and what does it say about the team spirit that Unai Emery’s side has developed?With Son Heung-min scoring a hat-trick of offside goals, does it just exemplify the faith that Villa fans need to maintain in Emery’s high line going forward?Some interesting subs from Emery paid off in the end as the Villa boys settled into a good rhythm in the second half; Leon Bailey showed his quality once again and Youri Tielemans set up Ollie Watkins for the game-winning goal - what a bargain the Belgian is turning out to be!Villa break into the top four! How much confidence should this give the lads and the fanbase as a whole heading into a hectic December schedule?Might be crazy to say, but surely Villa fans can go into the early December fixtures against Manchester City and Arsenal with the confidence and belief that they can get a positive result...or is that too delusional?All of this and so much more!

    Well then, what did the lads make of the performance at Villa Park from Unai Emery’s men on Sunday?13 consecutive top-flight wins at Villa Park for the first time in 40 years, with 37 goals being scored across that timeframe, it’s a truly incredible statistic, isn’t it?Considering Aston Villa’s performances at Villa Park, what could this mean in terms of how Villa approach games for the rest of the season, especially during the hectic fixture congestion throughout the entire month of December?Welcome to the John McGinn Appreciation Society!

    ASTON VILLA 2-1 AZ ALKMAAR: Gettin’ Puggy Wit It!

    It certainly wasn’t the best performance, but getting all three points is what matters most. Join Cole and Tom as the lads reflect on another European night at Villa Park and look ahead to Fulham’s trip to B6.

    WHAT DO WE DISCUSS?
    Fantastic performances don’t always matter if a team is still picking up positive results and Thursday’s match was the perfect example of this; what do the lads make of the win at Villa Park against AZ Alkmaar?15 consecutive wins at Villa Park is truly impressive; how far can this run go?Was playing with such a high defensive line on Thursday the right call?Youri Tielemans is certainly growing in confidence and is finally showing his quality on a consistent basis in a Villa shirt. How crucial is the Belgian becoming within Unai Emery’s squad?What’s the actual ceiling in regards to Douglas Luiz’s abilities? Is the sky the limit?Fulham travel to Villa Park on Sunday! Surely everyone is feeling confident regardless of the team that makes the trip to Fortress Villa Park these days?All of this and so much more! Enjoy the podcast and Up The Villa!STAY CONNECTED:

    NOTTINGHAM FOREST 2-0 ASTON VILLA: A valuable lesson!

    NOTTINGHAM FOREST 2-0 ASTON VILLA: A valuable lesson!

    It was a bad day at the office for Aston Villa on Sunday after our first loss in the Premier League since September 3rd. Our Cole and Seb sat down to react to the match and look ahead to AZ Alkmaar’s trip to Villa Park on Thursday.
    You can listen for FREE on Acast, Apple Podcasts, and Spotify - dig in!
    WHAT DO WE DISCUSS?
    Well then, surely that result was just a bad day at the office for Aston Villa?Two freak goals from Nottingham Forest and very little from Unai Emery’s men in terms of producing quality scoring chances meant it was a frustrating day for the Villa faithful; can’t really read into the loss too much, can we?What can be said about Villa’s away form this season and is there a particular reason for it?Villa have a fantastic habit of quickly rebounding from a defeat this season and churning out a positive result at the next opportunity; should we expect the lads to do the same when AZ Alkmaar make their way to Villa Park on Thursday?Given that Alkmaar will be desperate to climb up the Group E table, does this fixture suit Villa more knowing that they don’t have to chase the game from minute one?Let’s all keep the faith in the mighty Villa and back the lads to a week full of wins, yeah?All of this and so much more!
