MOMS #49: Aston Villa's Search for Style, Snap, Crackle & Pop

In the second show of the week, David Michael is joined by Chris Budd, for an impromptu show discussing a wide range of matters from, Villa kits and Lego Villa Parks to a full assessment of the current Aston Villa squad and a look at the shortfall in Bruce's tactics.

Into the third Championship season for Villa and Steve Bruce still seems to be going game-to-game relying on player's quality to pull them through, rather than having any team style or identity. Is he in the progress of changing that? Is he learning from his mistakes Is new boy John McGinn a key cog in his plan?
