    With traumatic loss, Aston Villa assure Premier League safety

    in Soccer

    After a one-week hiatus that likely had you holding your breath in antici...


    ...pation, the Holtecast returns! We've got a lot to talk about, too. There's the slaughter at St. Mary's last weekend. The following demolition of Hull by an aimless Tottenham Hotspur. And, oh yeah, safety! After weeks of worrying, Aston Villa are, finally, officially safe.


    So we've got all of that, plus we dig into your questions on twitter. Mainly: what will be the fate of Christian Benteke? It seems as if everyone is assuming that he's gone this summer, but why have we all suddenly jumped on that bandwagon?


    And of course we look ahead to this week's friendly against Burnley. With the Clarets relegated and the claret and blues safe, there's naught on the line but pride.

    Villa only get brief moment to bask in Spurs win before Liverpool at Wembley

    in Soccer

    Well this is unexpected. We're back for another week of podcasting and Aston Villa... won? They traveled to White Hart Lane and pulled off an unexpected victory. The Great Tim Sherwood Narrative™ was fulfilled and Villa managed to salvage a week that began with a disappointing result against QPR. And oh the things it did for their league standing.


    Now, although relegation safety isn't assured, it seems more likely than ever that Villa will be a part of the Premier League next year. And that means that we can turn our eyes to this weekend's FA Cup semifinal against Liverpool at Wembley. Unfortunately, Villa go in looking like a MASH ward and what once looked like a tough but winnable match now looks like an immense uphill climb.


    We dive into both matches as well as Jack's relegation poaching series, your questions from twitter, and more.

    Can Villa right the ship after Manchester United loss and QPR draw?

    in Soccer

    Jack and Robert are back, one week older and one point to the better. But we all know it should have been three points.


    On this week's Holtecast, we break down Aston Villa's performances against Manchester United over the weekend and Queens Park Rangers on Saturday. One was expected, the other wasn't good enough. There are sure to be calls for heads to roll and things that we'll regret saying later, but what is a podcast for if not snap judgments?


    Then we turn our focus to the future. Can Villa get anything out of a tough trip to White Hart Lane against Tottenham Hotspur. Probably not! But we see if we can find something that might work for Tactics Tim.
