HOLTECAST | Tottenham Hotspur 0-2 Aston Villa - New Year, New Villa!

Our Cole Pettem, Simon O’Regan, and Tom Nightingale sat down last night to react to a very pleasing Aston Villa win over Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur, reflect on how terrible Villa’s squad was a decade ago, and look ahead to Wolves on Wednesday. You can listen for FREE on AcastApple Podcasts, and Spotify - dig in!

What Do We Discuss?

  • Just how good was that away win against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday?!
  • How did the lads rate Aston Villa’s performance overall?
  • Were the lads surprised to see Unai Emery pick the same starting lineup that faced Liverpool on Boxing Day, with the likes of Matty Cash and Emi Martinez on the bench?
  • Ashley Young is the ageless wonder, isn’t he?
  • John McGinn is pretty mint when playing further forward - are we starting to see shades of the old McGinniesta that we know and love?
  • Now, if we don’t talk about the midfield partnership of Douglas Luiz and Boubacar Kamara, that would pretty much be sacrilege! Just how good is Kamara and what does having a quality defensive midfielder do to not only Luiz’s game, but the entire squad’s performance as a whole?
  • Three word reviews return, Cole decides to throw it all the way back to the 2012-2013 season and have the lads reflect on an interesting squad of players (that’s being kind!), and the lads look ahead to Wolves on Wednesday.
  • All of this and so much more! Enjoy the podcast and Up The Villa!

Just wanted to take a moment to say a massive thank you to every single person who has taken the time to listen, interact, and enjoy the podcast in 2022 - we hope everyone has a very Happy New Year and that Villa make this a year to remember!
