Aston Villa – Should We Be Concerned? / RIP Ron
In a less light-hearted show than usual, we pay our respects to My Old Man Said’s first Aston Villa manager Ron Saunders, who sadly passed away last week, before analysing what is going wrong for Villa at the moment and should we be concerned?
We analysis why the possession trademark of a Dean Smith side seems to have expired in the Premier League, while putting recent results like the 4-1 home loss to Leicester City into context.
Is Smith’s ethos failing? What’s up with Wesley? Did someone just utter the phrase “Doing a Fulham” again?
Also, outside of the Villa-verse, we look at the concept of fan engagement through Socios, the latest crisis club, and the football implications of Russia’s Wada drug ban.
Coming up later this week, we will put out a second part of the podcast answering the Mad Few listener questions, before the next full episode, so stay tuned for that.
