An Unprecedented Twist to an Aston Villa Season

With Aston Villa players in self-isolation like the rest of the world, the Corona virus has already changed society in an unprecedented way. But what will its impact be on Villa and the football world at large, going forward?

Press Play to Listen

The My Old Man Said podcast looks at the implications of the virus shutdown on Villa’s season, as the Premier League tries to find a way to close the 2019/20 season out satisfactorily.

While football is very much secondary to life as we’re currently experiencing it, there’s still plenty to discuss.

Is it possible for the season to end with integrity? While the Premier League has suspended play until April 30th, is that date merely biding them some time to come up with a solution?

Have Villa actually benefited from this enforced break? What’s Dean Smith’s position now? What does he have to rethink?

These are just some of the issues that are discussed over an hour of insightful debate.

There’s plenty of chat, including even a cameo from actress Gwyneth Paltrow…

Enjoy the show.
