There seems to be two trains of thought when it comes to Aston Villa’s season so far. First up, it’s perhaps stating the obvious to say the club has made good progress on last season. Considering failure to improve on the previous campaign would have led to relegation, there had to be progress, especially when you consider Villa were one of the biggest spenders last summer.
With an improved first XI and a glittering start to the season, there’s also an underlining disappointment though that a stuttering 2021 has undermined the full potential of the team in a season full of opportunity.
Progress is progress though, but the interesting question now is what is considered a ‘good season’ from this point forward?
Certainly the fixtures don’t get any easier, which is why there has been frustration over dropped points in 2021, especially against the likes of Sheffield United and Burnley.
Villa’s 0-0 draw with Wolves was perhaps further evidence of what is good about the current team and where it has cause for concern.
On the latest My Old Man Said podcast, as usual we ponder all the issues relating to the team, as well as taking look at topics further afield like the collapse of Chinese football and England’s hopes of hosting the World Cup in 2030.
Overrated or Underrated takes a look at one of the opposition players from last weekend, former Villan, Adama Traore.
