HOLTECAST | Aston Villa 1-1 Brentford - Please Don’t Take My Emi Away...

Cole was joined Simon and Tom to go over the weekend’s draw to Brentford in a bit more detail, look at the long list of injuries hitting the football club, and reflect on the bright future’s of a number of Villa youngsters. You can listen for FREE on AcastApple Podcasts, and Spotify - Dig In!

What Do We Discuss?

  • Are we beginning to feel slightly entitled as a fan base after the successes of last season and therefore expecting instant good fortune as a result this season?
  • Is a win, draw, and loss out of our first three games really the worst thing in the world?
  • Buendia produces the goods! Do we expect to see more production from the Argentinian in the near future or could he require a bit more time and patience?
  • How good were the likes of Carney Chukwuemeka, Axel Tuanzebe, and Anwar El Ghazi yesterday and how do these players fit into the club’s plans throughout the season?
  • How important is it for the leadership team at Villa to continue to provide first team opportunities to young players?
  • International duty & covid policy debate! With the likes of Emi Martinez and Emi Buendia set to miss at least one game through isolation due to leaving the country in order to represent Argentina, are we for or against the decision to let the lads go?
  • Simon, Cole, and Tom nominate their man of the match and have a crack at the Aston Villa edition of ‘Who Am I?’.
  • All of this and so much more! Enjoy the podcast and Up The Villa!
