HOLTECAST | Pre-Season feelings, Leon Bailey, and the Jack Grealish transfer saga

Cole, Tom, Simon, and Seb got together to discuss Villa’s pre-season thus far, the imminent signing of Leon Bailey from Bayer Leverkusen, and the ever-present Jack Grealish transfer saga with Manchester City...You can listen for FREE on AcastApple Podcasts, and Spotify - Dig In!

What Do We Discuss?

  • Pre-season rarely means much in terms of what may happen during an actual league season, but we’ve seen some promising performances - could we see some of the youngsters step up this season and what can be made of Buendia thus far?
  • The away kit was released last Friday - is this one of our better away kits of the last decade?
  • Leon Bailey is closing in a move to Villa Park! Is he a good fit for the squad and what can we expect from the pacey Jamaican during his time in B6?
  • With the likes of James Ward-Prowse, Todd Cantwell, and a number of other targets linked with Villa this summer, could we see another midfield addition join the club?
  • The Jack Grealish transfer merry-go-round continues - will he be moving to Manchester City this summer or will ownership stand tall and convince Jack to stay?
  • All of this and so much more! Enjoy the podcast and Up The Villa!
