My Old Man Said Aston Villa Podcast – Episode 8

Steve Bruce is the new Aston Villa manager after replacing Roberto Di Matteo who chalked up one solitary win while he was Villa boss. On the latest episode of the My Old Man Said podcast, we look at the changing of the guard at Villa and look at the other runners who were in the race for the job.

We also discuss what’s up with Mile Jedinak. The Villa midfielder may have scored this week while on international duty for Australia, but his performances for Villa so far have been well below par. Also, we take a look at the midfield issues on the whole.

In MOMS QT we answer listener questions, look ahead to the Wolves game (the calm derby before the end of month storm at St Andrews) and have five reasons to be cheerful as Villa fans.
