7500 To Holte

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.

Jack and Robert are here to talk about Aston Villa, even if thinking about this club is seemingly more than they deserve right now. Remember the win over AFC Bournemouth in the FA Cup? Well, a 5-0 demolition by Arsenal in London has put an end to the good feelings we had for a hot minute. It was fun while it lasted. 

And then the club didn't have anything to offer us on transfer deadline day. But since we've last recorded, Villa did add Scott Sinclair from Manchester City. We'll cover the January window in full and discuss Jack and James' grades for the window.

Jack makes his triumphant return this week and it's just in time, as we've got a lot to talk about. We'll be giving a look at last weekend's Liverpool match and determining if there was anything about which we could get excited. And we'll wrap up by taking a look at this weekend's FA Cup clash against Bournemouth and determining if there will be anything abut which we can get excited. 

And in between? Well, nothing but a little transfer news, some slaking of Gabby Agbonlahor, Carles Gil, and the failed Holte End protest. And of course, we'll get your questions.

Jack and Robert are back with the first Holtecast in 2015! Since we last talked, Villa have scored two goals in five matches and still have a record of 1-3-1 in that span. So how does that work? We'll be diving a bit into the holiday results to see if we can figure anything out about this crazy mess of a team right now. 

And then of course, there's the big story looming over everyone's heads right now: the January transfer window! Will Fabian Delph leave? What about Ron Vlaar? Will Paul Lambert be able to do anything useful given what are surely limited funds?

We'll also take a look, at roughly the midway point of the season, at Villa's best and worst players of the year. As always, you can subscribe to our audio feed using iTunes, Stitcher, BlogTalk Radio, or pretty much any other podcasting service you can think of.

Alright, let's get the big issue out of the way first:

VILLA WON! VILLA WON! VILLA WON!

For the first time since our September 18 episode, we're doing a post-win podcast. Isn't it glorious?

But to make things even better, we're joined this week by Sam Tighe, lead football writer for Bleacher Report UK. If you don't know Sam, get familiar with him. He's quickly become one of the brightest football writers around, and he writes frequently on Villa. For instance, here's his match report from Tuesday's win. Also make sure to follow Sam on twitter, where he can be found at @stighefootball.

Jack and I have taken two weeks off of podcasting since Villa won at Anfield, and this is still our sixth episode since Villa have last gotten three points. Goodness. But like it or not, at least the draw at West Ham staunched the bleeding a little bit this weekend. Thanks to a heroic effort from Brad Guzan and an anti-hero-like effort from West Ham's strikers, Villa managed to come away from the match with a point.

But they didn't score, and they never really looked as if they might. It's been, obviously, a big problem all season, and we dig into that a little bit. And with the international break upon us (Again? Already?) we ask one question: what's one thing that the club could change over the break that would lead to better results starting with the Southampton match?

We've got that and plenty more in this week's episode of the Holtecast.

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.

Jack and Robert are back after an Aston Villa w... wi... win? Is that how you spell it? It's their second in the month of January, but this weekend sees the club try to get back on track in the Premier League, where they haven't won since December 7. Unfortunately, the challenge will be stiff, as Villa travel to the Emirates to take on Arsenal, who currently sit in fifth. 

We'll have a recap of the FA Cup victory (with 2 [two!] goals!), and a look at what Villa might do as the transfer window closes. We'll also be welcoming on Zito Madu to talk about the Arsenal match. Zito is one of the best football writers around, and he plies his trade on The Short Fuse as well as on SB Nation (where he writes about more than just football).

Jack and Robert are back this week! Wait, no. Jack is busy doing important things, so Robert is back this week! But to prevent you from having to hear me drone on by myself for a while, we've brought in our very own Adam Clark to make his first Holtecast appearance. And what a time to join!

We've got a recap of the dreadful Leicester City match, a look at Aston Villa's limited action in the transfer window, some talk of new boy Carles Gil, the big protest planned [takes a huge breath] AND of course the Liverpool match set for this weekend. We ALSO end up taking some listener questions.

Aston Villa lost to the Baggies last weekend. And this weekend they've got the resurgent Manchester United, who they'll have to face without a bunch of key players. So, yeah, we'll talk about that. 

But let's look at some other stuff too. Namely, it's only 2 weeks until the January transfer window opens. With injuries seemingly never going away, what can Aston Villa do to make themselves better on what will likely be a limited budget? 

Aston Villa lost to the Baggies last weekend. And this weekend they've got the resurgent Manchester United, who they'll have to face without Ashley Westwood, Tom Cleverley, Kieran Richardson (yay) and heavens knows probably someone else. So, yeah, we'll talk about that.

But let's look at some other stuff too. Namely, it's only two weeks until the January transfer window opens. With injuries seemingly never going away, what can Aston Villa do to make themselves better on what will likely be a limited budget? Will making Cleverley permanent be a thing that the club do, and if so, will it be the only thing? Is there any chance of a Fabian Delph for Mousa Dembele swap with Spurs?

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?

You may have noticed that we did not have a podcast last week. This was a deliberate move, as Jack and I decided that 30 minutes of cursing was probably not something that we wanted to broadcast to the world, and that's all you would have gotten after Aston Villa's absolutely pitiful 2-0 loss to QPR.

But cursing or no, we can't take a two-week hiatus. So we're back, and Villa have now lost six straight matches, and only scored once since September 13. Things are as dire as they can be after the loss to Tottenham - a loss that saw the only routinely competent-looking Villa striker get a straight red card and a three match band - and we needed a way to cope. So we asked Steve Green to join us. Steve is one half of the duo that brings the absolutely amazing Aston Villa Review podcast to life and we get the chance to pick his brain for all things Villa.
