HOLTECAST | PREVIEW - Aston Villa v Newcastle United w/ The Athletic’s Chris Waugh!

Our Sebastian Bacon caught up with The Athletic’s Newcastle United correspondent, Chris Waugh, to chat about The Magpies’ season thus far and look ahead to this weekend’s clash at Villa Park. You can listen for FREE on AcastApple Podcasts, and Spotify - dig in!

What Do We Discuss?

  • What are the main reasons as to why Newcastle United has exploded up the Premier League table even though they haven’t spent an absurd amount of money in the market under their new owners?
  • From Chris’ perspective, is their a ceiling in terms of how far Eddie Howe can take Newcastle?
  • Has there been a surprise/shock in regards to Howe’s success thus far as Newcastle boss throughout the fanbase?
  • Alexander Isak has been outstanding for The Magpies as of late; how does Chris think he’ll do against an Aston Villa side who haven’t conceded at home for a good while?
  • What has been made of Anthony Gordon’s time at Newcastle thus far?
  • How’s good ol’ Matty Targett been?
  • What has Chris made of the job that Unai Emery has done at Villa this season?
  • How would Chris set up this Villa side against Newcastle on the weekend?
  • All of this and so much more! Enjoy the podcast and Up The Villa!
