MOMS #55: Movin' on Up With Dean Smith

The My Old Man Said podcast team of David Michael, Dan Rodgers and Chris Budd discuss 'Dean Smith's claret and blue army', as it begins to take shape. As well as spotlighting the Head Coach and his two assistants, John Terry and Richard O'Kelly, we look at Villa's new sporting Director and discuss a host of subjects such as the UEFA League of Nations, the manager that got away and his new job, plus, the policing issues around cabbages, drones and streakers.

There's also a new section called 'Where Were You, When We Were Good?' that looks back on a goal that saved Aston Villa's backsides back in 1994.

What's that on the episode cover? I hear you ask. It's a homage to Screamdelica, the great Primal Scream album of 1991. Their Birmingham-born keyboard player Martin Duffy is a massive Villa fan, with whom MOMS has had a couple of good Villa chats with over the years.

Hopefully with Dean Smith, to coin a Primal Scream song title, Aston Villa are finally Moving' on Up.
