Aston Villa's Premier League Restart Advantages Discussed

Before the 2019/20 season was suspended Aston Villa boss Dean Smith bemoaned Villa having “too many training-ground players”, who only turn it on at Bodymoor. With the Premier League restart on the horizon, will this now be an advantage for Villa?

We look at this phenomena in light of Villa's remaining 10 games being behind closed doors. What other advantages will Villa have? How big a plus will the return of John McGinn be too?

Also, the podcast looks at the Villa Women's team's promotion success and the resistance to the Newcastle United take over bid, which is warming up.

In a very entertaining Overrated or Underrated, the ex-Villa player trio of Mustapha Hadji, Earl Barrett and Saša Ćurčić are under the microscope, while we examine Juan Pablo Angel's position on the Villa Pantheon of stars.

As usual, there's plenty of laughs along the way.
