Villa Need Oven Ready Strikers to Get Survival Done

After a gallant draw away at the King Power in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final against Leicester City, a tired and clueless looking Aston Villa, got hit for six by Manchester City. It again proved Dean Smith needs reinforcements pronto.

The MOMS team look at the concern over January window progress when it comes to strikers, the regression of Villa's midfield, the concern of Villa being too nice a team, and questions some of the things Dean Smith has been saying recently.

They also look at the 6-1 embarrassment, Villa's chances of getting to Wembley, the signing of Pepe Reina and come up with some reasons to be cheerful despite dropping into the Premier League's bottom three again.

Also, the show discusses FA hypocrisy over giving TV highlights rights to betting companies, La Liga taking Saudi Arabian cash for football and a heart-warming story from Norwich.
