HOLTECAST | Watford 3-2 Aston Villa - Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day!

Join Cole, Danny, and Tom as the lads discuss Aston Villa’s opening day loss to Watford, assess the club’s further needs in the transfer market, and have a go at playing the Villa version of ‘Who Am I?’...You can listen for FREE on AcastApple Podcasts, and Spotify - Dig In!

What Do We Discuss?

  • Faltering from the start; what did the lads make of the starting line-up, the constant turnovers, and overall poor play for roughly 70 minutes?
  • Can we cut Villa some slack based on the fact that key players only made brief cameos due to various circumstances (i.e., Bailey and Traore) and missing the ever-important Watkins through injury?
  • Leon Bailey makes an impact already with an assist on his Villa debut; how does he look?
  • Is there reason for patience and optimism going forward after the brief comeback in the second half?
  • Tom, Danny, and Cole nominate their man of the match, listener three word reviews, and everyone’s favorite game is back as the lads play the Aston Villa edition of ‘Who Am I?’.
  • All of this and so much more! Enjoy the podcast and Up The Villa!
