HOLTECAST | Brighton & Hove Albion 1-2 Aston Villa: Unai Emery’s Claret & Blue Army!

With Aston Villa’s season now on pause due to the World Cup, Simon and Cole got together shortly after the final whistle on Sunday to discuss Aston Villa’s come-from-behind win over Brighton & Hove Albion and take into account how we’re all feeling about the Villa these days. You can listen for FREE on AcastApple Podcasts, and Spotify - dig in!

What Do We Discuss?

  • It certainly wasn’t the start we were hoping for, but what did the lads make of the come-from-behind win away at the Amex Stadium?
  • More importantly, what does securing the first away win of the season and doing so after trailing very early on in the match mean for this squad and the mentality that Unai Emery is trying to build?
  • How impressed are the lads with Unai Emery thus far as Aston Villa boss?
  • With Danny Ings stepping up and delivering in the place of a missing Ollie Watkins, what can be made of his performance on Sunday and what should we expect from the striker for the rest of the season?
  • Boubacar Kamara — he’s brilliant, isn’t he?!
  • The great centre-back debate! Once Diego Carlos returns from injury, who should be the starting centre-back pair for Emery’s Villa and why?
  • Emi Martinez, Ashley Young, and John McGinn are just some of the current crop of Villa players that aren’t afraid to drive opposing players and fans crazy with their antics — how nice is it to see some character in this Villa side?
  • How beneficial will the World Cup break be for Emery and his squad?
  • Are we all feeling confident about the Villa heading into the World Cup break and where do the lads think Villa could potentially finish come the end of the season?
  • All of this and so much more! Enjoy the podcast and Up The Villa!
