Aston Villa’s Young Lions

If there’s one big positive of Villa’s season so far, it’s the exciting new crop of young players that have come to the fore after being given a chance in the Villa first team.

While the Villa boss Steve Bruce has used his old boy network to get in older heads during the summer transfer window, getting in the likes of John Terry, Glenn Whelan, Ahmed Elmohamady and Robert Snodgrass, he’s also blooded players from the Villa youth team and got in the dynamic presence of Spurs loanee Josh Onomah.

Certainly, so far, it’s the young lions have impressed the most during the opening games of the season. From Keinan Davis immense debut start against Norwich to the impressive debuts of various academy players in the League Cup.

In the new episode of the My Old Man Said podcast we discuss both Onomah and the likes of Davis and former Villa U-18 captain Jack Doyle-Hayes’ contribution so far.

Doyle-Hayes Contract

On the subject of Doyle-Hayes, the 18-year-old signed a new three-year contract with Villa today. The young midfielder made his senior debut in the 4-1 win over Wigan Athletic in the League Cup.

“I’ve got to get my head down, keep learning and working hard on developing my game. I want to try and play as many games as I can,” said Doyle-Hayes on the club’s website.

Episode 26

As well as discussing Villa’s young guns on the podcast during the international break, we look back at the three game improvement of the Norwich City, Wigan and Bristol City games, where Villa improved performances in the league and marched on in the League Cup with their second string.

During the show we look at the #BruceOut uprising, Andre Green finding his final touch, the fall of Gary Gardner, Steve Bruce’s three CB’s controversy and the mention the signing of Robert Snodgrass along the way.

There’s Twitter With Tony, that walks the fine line between being profound philosophical poetry and making no sense at all. Plus, Negatron gives his view of transfer deadline day.
