Back Down to Earth From Spurs' Spaceship

Aston Villa marked their return to the Premier League with a tough trip to the brand new Tottenham Hotspur stadium to take on the Champions' League runners-up Spurs in the season opener. Despite tasting a 3-1 defeat, having led the home side for the majority of the game, Villa's players responded well to their baptism of fire.

David Michael is joined by Max Stokes and podcast new signing Jim Gough to discuss the fallout from the game - from Wesley bashers and Conor Hourihane haters to the birth of Villa's new nuclear defensive core in Tyrone Mings, Bjorn Engels and Tom Heaton.

We share our thoughts on the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium - is it the best in the UK?

There's also talk about football vegans, undercover texting security at football games and experiences of first game Premier League VAR.

And of course, the first Scott Hogan Touch Count of the season.
