What's that you say? A Holtecast that isn't just sadness and dour talk about doom, gloom, and relegation? It's true! Today's episode actually gets to talk about wins. Three of them, in fact! And, just to keep things feeling a bit normal, we throw in a loss too. 

We dive into the recent Villa winning streak (the first such streak since April 2010) and try to decipher if it's an indication of things to come, a fluke, or simply a regression to the mean. We also touch a bit on the ongoing injury crisis (Guess what. By reading this your left knee is now dead. Forever. Welcome to being an Aston Villa fan!) and Steve Bruce's tactics. 

And, as always, the spectre of Alan Hutton lurks over us all.
