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?

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.

Listen. We know it's not good news, per se, but we've got something very exciting in this week's Holtecast: talk of something other than a loss! Sure, it's the sacking of Tim Sherwood, and sure that sacking came as the result of another loss, but it's something different! Sometimes it's all about the little things in life. 

We sit down to try and figure out who might be the next man in charge in B6, and we do so even while speculation is swirling about Remi Garde, formerly of Lyon, canceling his weekend TV appearances. What would the Frenchman mean for Aston Villa? Could he help? Could anyone at this point hurt?

That may have been the most refreshing week ever. We're back and ready to talk about Aston Villa again. That's not to say that the club have become any better, but we're recharged!

And what a match to come back for. With speculation swirling that Tim Sherwood may only have two matches to save his tenure at Villa Park, he must lead his club to Stamford Bridge for a tilt against Chelsea. Sure Jose Mourinho's squad aren't as good as we've come to expect this year, but that doesn't mean this won't be difficult. It's Chelsea. It's always difficult.

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.

Jack returns for another week of the Holtecast, and he's without Robert (who is apparently an idiot at scheduling). But never fear, Robert's place is being taken by the fantastic James Rushton!

There's a new sheriff in town at Aston Villa. Or whatever it is that they call sheriffs in France. That's right, just as expected, Rémi Garde has taken over as the club's new manager to replace the recently-discarded Tim Sherwood. And the look on his face as he sat in the stands and watched Villa get trounced by Spurs was one that does not bode well for the players. I hope they enjoy strenuous workouts!

And oh yeah, there was that loss to Spurs. If you focus on the 15 minutes of good, tough play, it was really encouraging. If you ignore them, it was absolutely terrible. We'll try and fall somewhere in between as we take a look at the match and see if there is anything we can take from it and apply to this weekend's match against Manchester City. And some player. Some player we all dislike.

Well then, last weekend didn't go as well as we had hoped. The first half hour, wasn't bad, but then Brad Guzan did Brad Guzan things and it all fell apart. At this point in the season, any loss is bad, but at least losing to Chelsea is something that we expect and can deal with. 

But those excuses don't exist this weekend. Swansea are a very good club, but they've hit a rough patch and if Villa want to survive this year, they need to take advantage of teams like this. There's a win to be had here, and while it won't get Villa out of the relegation zone, it could close the gap. 

Jack and Robert and back to talk about the Chelsea loss, manager speculation, and this weekend's match with Swansea.

It's been nearly two months since Aston Villa last won a match in the Premier League, and aside from a late-August draw against Sunderland, it's been all losing in the meantime. And if you're Tim Sherwood, you might be starting to worry about your job at least a little bit. This weekend Villa host Stoke in their last match before a brutal run through October and November. 

So what can the club do to right the ship? Does a win this weekend against Stoke before the international break allow us all to take a deep breath and stop worrying, or is it just plugging a hole in a dam that's riddled with them?

Jack and Robert dive into that and more, including your twitter questions, on this weeks episode of the Holtecast!
