HOLTECAST | Brentford 1-2 Aston Villa - Swatting away The Bees!

It’s the second half of December and the mighty Villa are one point away from league leaders, Arsenal...let that sink in, Villans! Join Cole and Simon as the lads huddle together for a quick recap on Sunday’s away victory over Brentford and look ahead to Cameron Archer’s return to Villa Park on Friday. You can listen for FREE on AcastApple Podcasts, and Spotify - dig in!

What Do We Discuss?

  • Right then, who said Aston Villa struggle away at Brentford...well, we all have in the past, but what did the lads make of a vital win at the Gtech Community Stadium?
  • A sluggish 70 minutes from Unai Emery’s side is aided by Ben Mee’s extremely rash challenge on Leon Bailey; how dangerous was the challenge from the Brentford defender and how important was it to see Villa make The Bees pay having gone down to 10 men?
  • Moreno equalizes and Super Ollie Watkins scores the winner; an important first Premier League goal for the left-back and a return to form for the Torquay Haaland shows the goal threat throughout this Villa side, right?
  • 30 minutes of mayhem! Ben Mee and Boubacar Kamara were both sent off at different times for their respective sides, with the likes of Ezri Konsa, Neal Maupay, Saman Ghoddos, and Emi Martinez joining in on the handbags as well - a pretty unusual reaction for this Villa side, but one we should not expect to see often!
  • With Boubacar Kamara now set to miss the next three Premier League fixtures, could this issue actually be coming at a good time considering the run of fixtures for Emery’s men?
  • Sheffield United on Friday! What can we expect from Chris Wilder’s Blades and the return of Cameron Archer to Villa Park?
  • All of this and so much more! Enjoy the podcast and Up The Villa!
