MOMS #47: How Many Billionaires Does it Take to Save a Football Club?

Recorded shortly after the Bass Vase pre-season victory vs Burton , My Old Man Said's David and Dan discuss the new Aston Villa owners Wes Edens and Nassef Sawiris, Jack Grealish's situation and a bunch of other issues going into the 2018/19 season...a dreaded third in the row in the Championship.

Listener questions sent in via Instagram are tackled from the serious to the dubious. Stay listening post the end credits for the burning question of dressing room nutsacks.

MOMS has actually met the owners since the recording of the show (the release of which was delayed), to get an insight into the meeting check out - Insights and Impressions From Meeting Aston Villa’s New Owners

Also, read the latest My Old Man Said article on Jack Grealish's situation that encourages you to use your brain on the matter - Jack Grealish’s Transfer Reality and Tell Tales Signs of his Destiny

Now we're caught up with things, expect a new show very soon.
