SORT BY Relevancy
Spurs lay second loss in a row on Manchester City with impressive 4-1 win at White Hart Lane. Was Pochettino vindicated for his Capital Cup Derby line-up? Everton's great form continues as they come from two behind to notch another win - our evertonPhil joins live from cold England at 3:00 am his time to give up a passionate fan's take. Is scouserCraig so anti-Rodgers that he'd rather see his beloved Reds lose to get him out? After looking like they were getting iit together, Chelsea suffers through what Mourinho called the worst half of his stint as Chelsea manager to salvage a tie against lowly Newcastle - has the Eva malaise reappeared? We talk all this and more in the latest version of the Two Yanks v Brits Soccer Show.
Well let's see, what's happened since our last podcast? Rémi Garde managed his first match at Villa. And in one match he did 25% of the point total that Tim Sherwood and Kevin MacDonald had gotten in eleven. That's not bad! And then you remember that the point came against league-leading Manchester City and that becomes downright great!
Then we had the international break, and of course with that comes injury. Usually it's not to bad, but this time it cost us left-back Jordan Amavi for the rest of the season with a horrific knee knock.
With Villa back this weekend, though, they'll try to soldier on and build on a great performance against City. Going to Everton is never easy, but a win here could mean that Rémi Garde's team have the momentum they're going to need.

This week's Two Yanks v Brits Soccer Show welcomes expected and unexpected guests from far and near. evertonPhil rose at 3:00 local time in Liverpool, England to join the banter brigade at the Podcast Cubby via skype. westhamDave joined the show to share the surprising year-to-date results and the outlook for the Hammers' season moving forward. Visiting from Portland Oregon and working his Everton kit with pride, listener evertonTim unexpectedly joined the show and added greatly to the goings on. We review Costa, Chelsea v Arsenal, the the Capital Cup Arsenal v Spurs Derby. The Evertonians, Spurs fans and Southampton Bob opine about their football clubs all awhile scouserCraig torments all - and absorbs blistering counter banter punches - in a way unique to resident scouse. We cover all things BPL and more in this week's show.
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!
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!
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!
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.
