HOLTECAST | Reflecting on Aston Villa’s season thus far w/ Birmingham Live’s Ashley Preece!

With another break in the schedule for Steven Gerrard’s men, Cole and Tom had the pleasure of chatting with Aston Villa correspondent for Birmingham Live and fellow supporter, Ashley Preece, to get his thoughts on Villa’s season thus far and the direction the football club is headed. You can listen for FREE on AcastApple Podcasts, and Spotify - dig in!

What Do We Discuss?

  • Apart from being able to report on your beloved football team for a living, what’s Ashley’s favourite thing about his job?
  • What has been the hardest moment of Ashley’s time as an Aston Villa reporter so far?
  • What was it like travelling abroad to report on the Villa, especially all the way “Down Under” in Australia and what did Ashley make of the fans abroad?
  • Diving into the 2022/2023 season thus far, what do the lads deem as the best moment and biggest disappointment/frustration regarding this Villa side?
  • Who have been the standout performers so far this season?
  • Who needs to step up going into a busy portion of the campaign?
  • We just can’t have nice things...Boubacar Kamara is set to miss at least a couple months of action - what does Ashley make of the injury and how do we think Steven Gerrard will cope without the impactful defensive midfielder?
  • Do we think all positions were properly addressed during the summer transfer window?
  • To end things on a light note, who would be Ashley’s dream Villa-related interview? Heck, let’s see what Cole and Tom have to say about this topic too!
  • All of this and so much more! Enjoy the podcast and Up The Villa!
