7500 To Holte

Shared publicly  - 
 
With the help of a swanky London design firm, we've retooled the podcast this week. Our lyin' is bigger and we're not even vaguely "PREPARED." And the good news is that the effort cost us neither £2 million nor £80,000. In fact, it was entirely free, and we're passing the savings on to you, dear listeners!
And really, that's the big news of the week. A badge re-design. We're about to be relegated from the Premier League and the most exciting thing we have is a new badge. Good heavens. So in reality, this week's episode is another lightning-round version of the Holtecast. We're going to briefly look at the loss to Chelsea, the new badge, your twitter questions, and this weekend's match against Bournemouth.

So that was a rather eventful week, no? We've seen Hendrik Almstadt and Tom Fox fired. New board members added. Oh, and losing. Because Aston Villa. That's what they do. 

We also have swirling rumours of an impending sacking of Rémi Garde. Will he stay? Will he go? Should he stay or should he go? We look into possible trouble and see if a change could make it double. 

Aside from that? Well, there's not much else happening. We, as always, delve into your twitter questions, and we'll take a look at a lovely 20-year anniversary.

I spent my day enjoying some utterly bizarre early-spring warmth by walking around Washington, DC. It was glorious. But in the back of my head all day was one thought: "What are we going to talk about on the Holtecast this week?" You see, Aston Villa are bad. But we've said that before. Numerous times. And repeating it at length and ad nauseam seems like a bad choice for everyone. 

But then it hit me. And I texted Jack. And we're happy to present you the (first? last?) Lightning Holtecast! Five topics! Three minutes each! One beer per host! This is podcasting as it was always meant to be. We figure that Aston Villa aren't worth spending much time on, so why spend much time on them?

To that end, here are our topics for the day:

Manchester City match
Finances
Jack Grealish
Twitter questions
Spurs preview

Six to nil. 6-0. A lot to none. The last time we saw Aston Villa on the pitch they spent more time picking the ball out of the net than they did actually doing anything useful. And then they compounded the misery by admitting they didn't try, tweeting out pictures of cars, and trying to lie to us. HOORAY FOR FOOTBALL!

So of course the fans are angry, and we're on board. They've got every right to be angry. But Jack and Robert delve into the Out the Door on 74 movement. Is it the right thing to do? Could we do better? Would it matter?

We also take your twitter questions and preview this weekend's match against Stoke.

Jack and Robert are back, and it's safe to say that neither of them are too happy after what Aston Villa have done in the past week. After a glorious five-match unbeaten run that saw hope revived, Villa managed to get curb-stomped by Manchester City in the FA Cup and rode some Jordan Ayew anger to a two-goal loss against West Ham United. 

Goodbye hope, it was nice knowing you. 

We get to those matches, of course, as well as this weekend's tilt against Norwich City. Plus, your twitter questions, transfer ratings (hahaha) and more!

Aston Villa have won again! It happened! No, really, it did! And to celebrate, we're having all three Holtecast hosts on this week for episode 76 of the podcast. Jack and Robert are reunited and it feels so good and James joins us to tell us what it's like being at Villa Park for an honest-to-goodness win. 

After reveling in the glory of three points for a while, we take a look at what Villa might have in store for January, this weekend's match against tied for points at the top of the table Leicester, and plenty more.

Hello and welcome to Aston Villa. Please have a seat. We'd like you to be here for four years, so we've made this contract. Please sign this contract. Alright, now please stand up. Turn around. Walk out the door. And be sure to get the party favor! We're handing you a few million quid just for being here today! Ta ta!

And just like that Jack and Robert are back talking about yet another sacked manager. Er, mutually consented manager. Whatever. Rémi Garde is gone, the options to take over are... less than inspiring, and we've got Chelsea on Saturday. So yeah, we're very happy tonight.

Did you know that Holtecast anagrams to Lose Chatt. This week on Lose Chatt Jack and Robert are tackling the important questions. Questions like: Why? When? How? What? If you'd like those expanded, we examine when the misery will end, how our eventual fate will befall us, what Rémi Garde can do while Rome burns and why, God, why?

We do this, of course, by looking at losses to Stoke and Everton. We also preview this weekend's upcoming loss to Manchester City. In between, we talk protests, schisms, and the ultimate question in red candy. That's right, it's time to settle Twizzlers vs. Red Vines once and for all, and there are hot takes to be had.

We're back and winning-er than ever! It's episode 80 of the Holtecast and we're riding the high that can only come from beating a team by multiple goals. I'm sorry you had to be the punching bags, Norwich City, but I'm actually not sorry. 

So yeah, Jack and Robert spend a bit of time on that this week. Talking about winning is fun, it turns out. We've also got the news of the day. News like Rémi Garde's commitment to the club so long as the club shows a commitment to (spending) money. And news like... uh... it's a quiet week. 

We've also got a very special game to celebrate Jack's 24th birthday!

Does something feel different around here? Is it the air? Maybe the water is different. Or maybe it's the fact that we're getting to do our second podcast in a row that doesn't talk about losing. That's the most likely answer. 

Jack and Robert return to delve into all of the important issues. Issues like, "How bad WAS that ref against Leicester City?" and "Does a 2-0 win over Wycombe Wanderers in the FA Cup count if no one was able to watch it?"

We also get to your twitter questions on this, the 77th episode of the Holtecast.

Well, it was a point, right? And we should all be thankful that it wasn't (yet another) loss, right? But it is hard to be too excited by Aston Villa 1-1 draw at Southampton last weekend. It doesn't help that the team didn't look all that good doing it. 

But, it's a point. We'll take what we can, especially with Arsenal on the docket this weekend. You may remember the Gunners as the team who ripped apart our dreams of FA Cup glory in 4-0 fashion at Wembley back in May. Or you may not remember, because you've wisely blocked that moment from your mind. Anyhow, Jack and Robert are back to break things down: where do Aston Villa stand and what can we expect going forward?
