MOMS Episode 25: Steve Bruce Faces Fire and Fury

If you believe the 'football scholars' on social media, Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce is one or two bad results away from being sacked. A judgment made regardless of the fact, that he's just had his first preseason and bought in another batch of players. In the real world, he'll certainly get more than three games to prove his credentials, but patience is running thin and the football is still woeful.

David and Dan of the My Old Man Said podcast have always maintained the brand of football hasn't been good enough for promotion or even worthy of watching. They both discuss what's going wrong on the pitch and examine the double whammy of insipid performances in the away defeats against Cardiff and Reading. They also cover former Villan Gareth Barry going to WBA.

Villa players in focus include all the cover boys. Will Scott Hogan come good? What is Bruce playing at with Conor Hourihane? What's the point of Birkir Bjarnason? And what's with Andre Green's final touch?!

Also, Negatron discusses scapegoats and what should be done to the Villa boss. A concerned Randy Lerner goes all Donald Trump on Tony Xia over a certain £30m and 'Twitter With Tony' returns...kind of.

The show will also take you to a strange parallel Villa universe...where doom and gloom doesn't exist.

So get ready for Villa analysis wrapped up in the laugh a minute ride with sketches, surreal happenings and outtakes.
