    FA Cup final preview podcast: Can Villa beat Arsenal at Wembley?

    in Soccer

    We're back, and we've got an entire hour devoted to talking about the Burnley match. N'Zogbia sure was a weird left back choice, right? And how about that time when... uh... actually I don't even really remember the Burnley match. And we're barely touching on it this week.


    Why?


    Well because the is FA Cup final week. We're here to take a look at everything surrounding Saturday's trip to Wembley. What do Villa have to do to beat Arsenal? Can we finally score a goal on the Gunners this year? Will we be able to liit their damage to fewer than the four goals they've averaged against us.


    To help us figure this all out, we've got Travis King from The Short Fuse to give us a bit of an Arsenal perspective. Don't worry, we checked. He's a decent human being.

    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.

    Win over Everton sees Aston Villa edge closer to safety

    in Soccer

    So close and yet so far. After a dominating 3-2 win over Everton at Villa Park last weekend Aston Villa sit on 35 points. A month ago we probably would have told you that 35 was enough to guarantee safety, but surges from teams like Leicester and Sunderland mean that we're not quite over the hump yet. 


    Today we tackle that win and the concurrent results over the weekend. To top it off, we analyze what it will take to actually ensure Premier League survival. The good news: it's not much more! We also take a look at the incoherent ramblings of Roy Keane, answer your twitter questions, preview this weekend's match against West Ham and more!

    Despite Aston Villa's best against Manchester City, relegation race tightens

    in Soccer

    Huh. Two consecutive weeks and Aston Villa have played their best football of the season, and yet they've only gotten one win. Defensive miscues doomed the club on their visit to the reigning champions Manchester City, but the big issue is the relegation picture. A normal club would get to feel good about such a strong performance, but Villa have to immediately start looking below and above them. 


    So this week we take on that City match: what went right? What went wrong? And then we turn to the bigger relegation picture. If you trust the bookies, we shouldn't be worried yet, but never trust the bookies. 


    And as always, we get to your twitter questions and take a look at this week's match against Everton.

    Dissecting Villa's FA Cup win over Liverpool and looking ahead to Manchester Cit

    in Soccer

    Welcome back to the Holtecast: the official podcast of a website that blogs about a team who are now FA Cup finalists! It's practically like having Christian Benteke whispering in your ears if Christian Benteke were white and American. But Jack and Robert are here to talk extensively about the incredible semifinal win over Liverpool. We also delve into the fact that Tim Sherwood now has the best winning percentage of any Aston Villa manager ever. 


    And of course, we have injury news. We say of course because this is Aston Villa and injuries are just a normal part of life. This week it isn't so bad, though! Even baby steps are still steps. In between all of this we've also got answers to your questions on twitter as well as a preview of Saturday's Manchester City match.

    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.

    Villa visit Manchester United with eight matches to secure safety

    in Soccer

    Jack and Robert return after taking their very own international break. And what a week to come back to. All was mostly quiet on the Aston Villa front, but in the next few days the club have three hugely important Premier League matches coming up.


    And the first is this Saturday's trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United. We dig into that match with a bit of a preview and also glimpse ahead at the QPR match on Tuesday.


    We've also got injury news, Darren Bent rumours, your questions, and more!

    We're going streaking! Aston Villa try for fourth straight win against Swansea

    in Soccer

    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?
