    Aston Villa: Burning a path of glory through the midlands

    in Soccer

    We've got two things on our plates today, and both involve midlands rivals. We start by talking about last weekend's win over Leicester City. What about that tackle on Westwood? Wasn't it great that Ciaran Clark is amazing? Alan Hutton too? And are Leicester our new least favorite team?

    Of course they aren't, because then we turn our attention to West Bromwich Albion, or as I prefer to think of them: Wet Sandwich Albatross. We preview this weekend's derby match where it will be decided, once and for all, which team reallyis the pride of the midlands.

    How a battered Aston Villa can crack Southampton's defense

    in Soccer

    The Holtecast, like football after the international break, is back! And, like football after the international break, we're battered. Battered down by watching Villa play seven matches since September 13 and not grab a win in any of them. But that doesn't mean that we've given up hope entirely! No thanks to circumstances, of course.

    This week we dive into everything that has happened since our last episode. And given that it was a break, there's a surprising amount to cover. Ron Vlaar got injured, Villa got connected to his replacement, and lots of meaningless international football went on. But we spend the bulk of today looking ahead to Monday's match against Southampton. How can Aston Villa's anemic offense unlock the Premier League's best defense? Can it be done?

    Aston Villa defeated 3-0 by Everton; does QPR offer hope?

    in Soccer

    Alright, losing 3-0 to Arsenal is fine. Doing the same to Chelsea? Acceptable. A 2-0 loss that was competitive for 82 minutes to Manchester City was even, dare we say it, encouraging. But 3-0 to Everton? A team that had allowed more goals than any other in the Premier League? Well, that's just infuriating.

    And it doesn't help that Aston Villa played terribly to boot.

    Jack and Robert are back to dissect yet another loss. Four in a row in a stretch that we knew was capable of producing exactly that kind of run. And in fact, that's the only thing keeping most Villa fans sane right now. Lose 3-0 to QPR on Monday, though, and you can bet we all lose that tenuous grasp.

    Aston Villa prepare for Everton after the international break

    in Soccer

    Jack and Robert are back, and so, too, are Aston Villa. After an international break that saw plenty of players out on duty (and one injured) the club are ready to take on Everton at Goodison Park this weekend.

    And after three straight goalless losses, it sure would be nice to see Villa get SOMETHING from this matchup. The good news, of course, is that Christian Benteke is back, and he should help add some potency to what has been an absolutely anemic attack. 

    So we've got coverage of all this and more on today's Holtecast! Remember, you can subscribe on YouTube, or to our audio-only feed at iTunes, Stitcher, BlogTalk Radio, or anywhere else you get podcasts. Thanks, as always, for listening!

    Basking in another result at Anfield

    in Soccer

    We've got plenty of discussion of the win at Anfield because how could we do otherwise? We also talk a lot about Villa's back line, the area of the team that have been absolutely key in this blistering start to the season.

    And of course we preview the visit from Arsenal this weekend. Can Villa keep the momentum going against a tired and injured team? We certainly hope so!

    You'll also find out that we record the day before we release these, so you'll hear a mention or two of wanting Paul Lambert to get a new contract. I'm going to claim that we made that happen. You're welcome.

    As always, you can subscribe to us on iTunes, Stitcher, BlogTalk Radio, YouTube, or practically anywhere else you might normally find a podcast. Enjoy, and up the Villa!

    Holtecast - We're back with four points!

    in Soccer

    Aston Villa have gotten out to what is, by any means, a fantastic start. The 2014-15 season began with the win at Stoke and was followed by a draw at home toNewcastle United. Both results were the type Villa should expect, but didn't get last season. 

    And Jack and Robert are back to talk about it. We've got discussion of the matches played, a look at the summer transfers, and previews of this week's two matches. Join us live, in the Google Hangout below, where you can follow along, and feel free to send us questions on twitter @crabsauss and @7500_Robert.

    Can Aston Villa rebuild with £15 million? Do they need to?

    in Soccer

    Jack and Robert are back to talk about what's new with Aston Villa now that summer is really underway. We've got chat about the players who have already come and gone, including some discussion of whether or not letting Marc Albrighton go was a good idea. 

    We also dive into the Hong Kong Soccer 7s tournament going on right now. Jack Grealish, in particular, seems eager to prove himself in the tournament. 

    And our main focus today is whether or not Villa can actually rebuild themselves into a contender with the reported £15 million budget that Paul Lambert has to work with.

    How will the sale affect Aston Villa's summer?

    in Soccer

    Just because the season is over doesn't mean that the Holtecast is. Jack and I have too much important stuff to talk about to skip a week. First there's the match against Spurs. That's important, right? 

    And then there... well... I know there was something important. 

    Ah yes, the club's for sale. No big deal! We're going to dive into everything we know about the sale thus far, and plenty of things that we don't. Who will buy? Why did Randy wait so long to get his act together? What does this all mean for Paul Lambert? And perhaps most importantly, what does this mean for Villa going forward?
