What Do We Discuss?
- It was certainly a statement win against West Ham United at Villa Park on Sunday, but what did the lads make of the performance?
- Aston Villa fans, in the past, have looked at West Ham as a measuring stick in terms of the football club taking the next step in advancing up the league table, but have come up short since 2015 — what can be made of Sunday’s win and is this a sign that Villa are finally taking that step forward?
- Villa are now fifth in the Premier League table and sit two points (at time of recording) off of Manchester City; how impressive has Unai Emery’s side been so far this season?
- A Douglas Luiz double! How impactful has the Brazilian been this season and how impressive has his progress been since joining the football club a few seasons ago?
- Super Ollie Watkins is at it again! Comparing the striker when under Dean Smith to how he is under Unai Emery, what are the major differences?
- AZ Alkmaar on Thursday; how important is it for Villa to pull out a result away in the Netherlands and start to take control of Group E?
- All of this and so much more! Enjoy the podcast and Up The Villa!
