HOLTECAST | Nottingham Forest 1-1 Aston Villa - Different day, same old excuses!

Cole and Seb got together after Monday’s draw against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground to break down the nights action (or lack of), with the pressure on Steven Gerrard intensifying. You can listen for FREE on AcastApple Podcasts, and Spotify - dig in!

What Do We Discuss?

  • How are the lads feeling about the performance?
  • It’s clear that Aston Villa are struggling to create scoring opportunities, but how much of the blame falls on Steven Gerrard versus the players themselves?
  • 61% possession on the night, with 12 shots and only 2 of those being on target - we’re just not going to see success playing Gerrard’s brand of football (or whatever you’d like to call it), are we?
  • 37 year-old Ashley Young turning back the years and scoring a peach of a goal, which surely made all Villa fans feel a sense of nostalgia!
  • THAT John McGinn miss though...
  • Another point on the board, but with only 9 points from the first 9 games of the Premier League campaign, is Gerrard finally running out of time?
  • Gerrard has asked for the likes of Watkins, Coutinho, Ings, and Bailey to step up and be “headline writers”, but success starts with a positive gameplan, surely?
  • All of this and so much more! Enjoy the podcast and Up The Villa!
