HOLTECAST | Bournemouth 2-0 Aston Villa - New season, same old Villa!

The lads sat down to review Aston Villa’s season opening loss to Bournemouth on Saturday, discuss Steven Gerrard’s comments and man management style, and chat about what’s next for the Villa as Everton pay a visit to Villa Park on Saturday. You can listen for FREE on AcastApple Podcasts, and Spotify - dig in!

What Do We Discuss?

  • Well that wasn’t pretty viewing to say the least...what did the lads make of Saturday’s performance (or lack of) against Bournemouth?
  • Two goals conceded from set pieces - how much of a concern should that be?
  • What can be made of the lack of a visible game plan from Steven Gerrard and his coaching staff? Has anything really changed from last season?
  • Should we treat this loss as an isolated incident or could this be an early sign of a much bigger issue that has the potential to worsen over time?
  • Trying to make sense of Gerrard’s comment about Tyrone Mings - how have we gotten to this point and does this leave a sour taste in fans’ mouths?
  • No need to worry about the “Gerrard Out!” train yet, but are the snappy comments and changing demeanor from the Villa boss a major concern at this point?
  • The lads briefly look ahead to Everton on the weekend - can we muster up any sort of confidence heading into the first home game of the new Premier League season?
  • All of this and so much more! Enjoy the podcast and Up The Villa!
