HOLTECAST | Chelsea 3-0 Aston Villa - Mistakes, Patience, and Promise

Cole was joined by Tom and SImon to discuss Villa’s loss to Chelsea on Saturday, the need for continued patience as the squad slowly gels together, and how Dean Smith has set up the lads so far this season. You can listen for FREE on AcastApple Podcasts, and Spotify - dig in!

What Do We Discuss?

  • Introducing our new charity partner: Acorns Children’s Hospice!
  • Could we see the 5-3-2/3-5-2 formations used more often this season?
  • The Jacob Ramsey Appreciation Society.
  • Will we see Danny Ings and Ollie Watkins consistently play up front together and how lethal could the two forwards be once they really start gelling?
  • How soon do we expect the squad to gel?
  • The importance of patience.
  • 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!
