MOMS #61: Nevermind - Aston Villa's Start to 2019

The Old Man Said podcast is back for 2019 in what has been a winless year for Aston Villa so far. David Michael, Dan Rodgers and Chris Budd discuss the foundations of Dean Smith's 2018, the FA Cup exit and the stuttering recent form and Villa's mid-table limbo.

The episode discusses Villa sans Grealish struggles, the steep dip in form, current defensive woes, the returning loans, the January transfer window, and the key recent non-Villa issue of Manchester United switching from Jose Mourinho to Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

The latest 'Where Were You, When We Were Good?' section goes back to December 1998 to take in the fight back against Champions Arsenal. Villa, 2-0 down at half-time, went on to win 3-2 and climb to the top of the league. Dion Dublin, Stan Collymore, Julian Joachim, Gareth Southgate and co are all remembered, as is John Gregory's toils with Doug Ellis, that ultimately blunted Villa's quest to create a Premier League legacy.
