HOLTECAST | Aston Villa 1-1 Manchester City - Ashley’s feeling Young!

Cole and the well travelled Simon got together to react to an extremely surprising and unexpected 1-1 draw for Aston Villa against Manchester City, with Leon Bailey finding the back of the net and VAR controversy rearing it’s ugly head. You can listen for FREE on AcastApple Podcasts, and Spotify - dig in!

What Do We Discuss?

  • Well, that draw was very unexpected! What did the lads make of the hard-earned point at Villa Park against Manchester City on Saturday?
  • With pressure only building on the shoulders of Steven Gerrard, was the tweak in formation and tactics a sign of a manager who is starting to learn a valuable lesson or was this more so a case of a management team setting up to play one of the best sides in the world?
  • 37 going on 27 - how impressive was Ashley Young on Saturday and how important is it for Villa’s bench to put in key performances when called upon?
  • The lads read out thoughts sent in by the listeners in regards to the confidence levels heading into the next few games following Saturday’s results and hone in on one particular theme: “What should Aston Villa’s identity look like this season?”.
  • Ah, VAR is just lovely, isn’t it?
  • All of this and so much more! Enjoy the podcast and Up The Villa!
