Unai Emery Lifts United Curse and Villa Players Regain Respect

Great Start for Unai Emery

We’ve waited a long, long time to see an Aston Villa team beat Manchester United at Villa Park. For 27 years Villa have been serially tormented at home by the red half of Manchester. Is that about to change now under Unai Emery? Who until the mid-week cup loss, hadn’t lost against United.

It was an impressive first game in charge for the new Villa head coach, and suggests that the team should make their way up the league table and, at least, they shouldn’t face a relegation battle this season.

In the latest main show of the My Old Man Said podcast we look back at what Emery got right in terms of his selection, the players that impressed, the tactical tweaks, as well as catching up on on the latest Villa news, Three Points, Reasons to be Cheerful and Media Muppets. Plus, we introduce a new segment called ‘Emery’s Clipboard’.
