MOMS Aston Villa Podcast Ep. 24: Season Starts With Progress and Question Marks

Aston Villa are unbeaten and still in the League Cup. That's two things they failed to do after the first two games last season in the Championship. David and Dan reflect back on the league opener against Hull City and the mid-week League Cup away win in the rain of Colchester.

They have a closer look at players that haven't really got up and running at Villa, such as Scott Hogan, Conor Hourihane and Birkir Bjarnason. And also access whether the team's young hopefuls such as Andre Green and Callum O'Hare can play a big role in Aston Villa's quest for promotion.

The logic of Samba's cameo up front is revealed and there is concern over the left-side of Villa's team.

Also, in the show is Twitter With Tony and a couple of appearances from Negatron to spoil the early season optimism.

* The audio quality is not totally on point due to the wi-fi messing things up. Rather than ditch the show, much effort (and many hours) were put in to make it as good as possible, so at least you could listen to it. It's still not bad, it's just not how we'd ideally have liked it.
