SORT BY Relevancy
Well then, last weekend didn't go as well as we had hoped. The first half hour, wasn't bad, but then Brad Guzan did Brad Guzan things and it all fell apart. At this point in the season, any loss is bad, but at least losing to Chelsea is something that we expect and can deal with.
But those excuses don't exist this weekend. Swansea are a very good club, but they've hit a rough patch and if Villa want to survive this year, they need to take advantage of teams like this. There's a win to be had here, and while it won't get Villa out of the relegation zone, it could close the gap.
Jack and Robert and back to talk about the Chelsea loss, manager speculation, and this weekend's match with Swansea.
Chelsea continues miserable start to the new season in losing another match and losing their key transfer window target John Stones. Can Jose right the ship after the Blues' worse start since the early 1970s? After showing promise with two wins and a draw in their first three games, Liverpool gets buried in a 0-3 drubbing to West Ham. Is Brendan Rodgers the right manager for this team? After not being scored upon in three games Manchester United give up two goals in five minutes in their loss to upcomers Swansea City - and what was that fiasco about in the De Gea/Real Madrid transfer falling apart due to paper work snafus at the eleventh hour? With Arsenal scoring just three goals this season and "own goal" accounting for two of those, Arsene Wenger responds by aquiring no field players in this summer's transfer window - is this same old AW routine wearing thin on Gunner fans again? Wholesale changes again at Southampton: after getting their first win this week against mighty Watford can the Saints pull off another successfull complete player overhaul? The panel picks their Blacksheep/underdog teams for the season - Swansea, Sunderland, Leister or maybe Bournemouth? Having walked into a Santa Monica bar while being in the USA for a work project and meeting scourserCraig, fellow scouser liverpoolGary jumps on the pubcast and starts pitching the banter from word one - great to have you on the show Gary! We discuss all this and more in the latest version of the famous Two Yanks v Brits Soccer Show!
Live from the Podcast (Pubcast?) Cubby the Two Yanks v Brits react to Chelsea's solid pounding by Manchester City - is Jose Mourinho up to his old tricks of manipulating the Russian billionaire to get more transfer window action? Is John Terry being treated like Steven Gerrard was last year? Liverpool was boring and lucky in maintaining their out-of-the-blocks perfect season - which is the best player combination? Is Bentecke the strike force answer they've been looking for? Is Southampton in deep trouble or is everything still rosey as Southampton says? Is Swansea City FC the model for every newly promoted team? Can the Swans improve on last season's tremendous eighth place finish? How did the newly promoted Bournmouth, Norwich City and Watford fare this week? We discuss this and much more!
Jack and Robert are back and we swear that we won't make any predictions. Three matches without a prediction, and three wins for Aston Villa. The latest was last weekend's 0-4 drubbing of Sunderland at the Stadium of Light that led to Gus Poyet getting fired. Nice to be on the other side of that for once.
We'll take a look at the relegation race as it stands after the weekend. With their win, Villa look much better, but Burnleytook a surprising 1-0 against Manchester City and made safety a bit harder to achieve. Jerks. We'll also be taking your questions from Twitter and Facebook.
And of course we'll glance ahead at this weekend's match against Swansea. The last before a two-week international break. Can Villa keep up their winning ways?

We also take a look at what teams you should be rooting for this weekend in the Premier League to best help Aston Villa avoid relegation. Here's a hint: we want Fulham and Norwich to lose.
And of course we've got a preview of this weekend's trip to Swansea City. All on this week's Holtecast!
In this episode, we first looked back at the 1-1 draw for Fulham against Southampton at Craven Cottage on Boxing Day. Later on, we previewed the upcoming match for Fulham against Swansea.

This is our Post-Match show of Fulham vs. Swansea City
Listen. We know it's not good news, per se, but we've got something very exciting in this week's Holtecast: talk of something other than a loss! Sure, it's the sacking of Tim Sherwood, and sure that sacking came as the result of another loss, but it's something different! Sometimes it's all about the little things in life.
We sit down to try and figure out who might be the next man in charge in B6, and we do so even while speculation is swirling about Remi Garde, formerly of Lyon, canceling his weekend TV appearances. What would the Frenchman mean for Aston Villa? Could he help? Could anyone at this point hurt?
Manchester United won only by benefiting form the first own-goal to start a season in BPL history. Petr Cech's bad misplays cost Arsenal their game opener against West Ham. Chelsea muddles to a two all draw against an impressive Swansea City team. Coutihno's brilliant goal salvages and otherwise pedestrian Liverpool effort. Manchester City makes a statement as the only big team to win in a way expected of a title contender. We react to these and much more in the latest version of the famous Two Yanks v Brits Soccer Show!
