Sicknote Villa Midfield, Deep Defending and can Ashley Westwood Improve?

ashley westwood statsMy Old Man Said Aston Villa Podcast – Episode 6

Greetings Villans,

The sixth episode of the My Old Man Said podcast reflects back on a run of three Villa draws and discusses the two main areas of the team that need attention if the team is to mount a credible promotion challenge – the midfield and defence.

Will Aaron Tishbola become more than just a ‘sicknote’ this season? Is Jedinak 100% fit yet? Will Gardner step up? And can Ashley Westwood actually improve or is he actually regressing?

In terms of Villa’s defence, what’s with them defending so deep and leaving not a single player outside the penalty box as an out ball? What’s Di Matteo playing at?

All this and more is discussed in episode 6 of the show, along with a look at what’s been happening in the Championship, Jedinak’s jungle and Five Reasons to be Cheerful.

MOMS editor David Michael is once again joined by Dan Rogers from the Villa Underground and MOMS writer Chad Wrenn is discuss all these issues.
