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.

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.

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.

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 BACK with another scintillating Holtecast. Coming fresh off of two wins over West Bromwich Albion, Aston Villa will be looking to put even more distance between themselves and the relegation fight this weekend. The trip to Sunderland comes as seemingly the entire defense is injured or dying, but improved performances in the past few matches are giving us a little bit of hope. 

Before we get to that, though, Jack and I look back at Saturday's glorious, amazing, wonderful, FA Cup quarter-final victory over the Baggies. Was this what we can expect going forward? Which goal was the best? How terrible and horrifying were the crowds rushing the field? What will happen when civilization falls thanks to those same mobs?

We answer all of those, your questions, and more. Thanks, as always, for listening or watching!

Jack and Robert return for another Holtecast. And we've got our third manager in three episode. First Paul Lambert, then the double-headed beast that was Scott/Andy Marshall, and finally we're onto Tim Sherwood. We take a look at whether or not Tactics Tim is a good fit at Villa Park. 

And over the weekend something strange happened: Villa scored two goals and beat a Premier League opponent. Now, it wasn't in the league, but still. That's a win! And it sends the club to the quarterfinals of the FA Cup, one win removed from Wembley.

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!

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.

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.

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 Burnley took 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?

So here's a novel idea: we're podcasting after an Aston Villa win. Yes, that's right. And what's more, it's a win in the Premier League. We haven't gotten to do a podcast like that in nearly three months, so you can imagine how excited we are. 

We begin, of course, by recounting the thrilling win over West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday. There is no shortage of gloating over the win, and especially the gut-punching manner in which it happened. After that we take on all sorts of Aston Villa news: the return of Stiliyan Petrov, the defensive injury crisis, and more. 

And how can we leave you except by looking ahead to tomorrow's FA Cup quarter final clash against the Baggies?

We were going to record at our normal Wednesday morning time this week, but Robert had a scheduling conflict and thank heavens for that. We would have spent half an hour speculating about the news that we can now spend half an hour actually talking about!

After losses to Chelsea and Hull City since last we had an episode, Aston Villa have finally put Paul Lambert out of his misery and sacked him. We take a look at the leading candidates to replace him and what they might do once they get here. 

And of course we preview this weekend's rubber match against Leicester City. After splitting the series in the Premier League this season, they head to the FA Cup for a Sunday draw in the fifth round at Villa Park.
