The Unapologetic and Dysfunctional Villa Christmas Special - Part 1 interesting kind of year. Set for relegation, Aston Villa managed to utilise a global pandemic to hatch a great escape, secure their Premier League status, and then swiftly transition into world beaters at the start of the following season.

To look back on a madcap 12 months for Aston Villa football club, the My Old Man Said team have sat down to knock out a two-part Unapologetic and Dysfunctional Villa Christmas Special.

Who is the 'Villa Player of the Year...that isn't Jack Grealish'? Who is the 'Most Improved Player That Needed to Improve'? What were Villa's best pieces of business - in and out of the club - in 2020? What were the 'Best Limbs Moments of 2020'?

The Unapologetic and Dysfunctional Villa Christmas Special judges these and much, much more.

There's also a few old MOMS favourites too, including a 'Villa Year in a Villa Minute', Five Reasons to be Cheerful and The Good, Bad & Ugly of Villa's year.

And we address Grealish's 'for one game only' Cornish pasty hairdo.

Plus, bells, so many bells!


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all our listeners.




Part Two coming very soon...
