What's Holding Competitive Villa Back From Being Winners?

Frustration builds for a competitive Aston Villa side that should have picked up more wins than just one from their six league games so far. Managing to lose against Arsenal, after being 1-0 up and a man up at half-time, is their most worrisome effort yet.

David, Dan and Chris look back at events at the Emirates Stadium and try to process what had begun as Villa's most impressive performance this season to the team's most spectacular collapse.

We look at the questions of in-game management and why it went wrong for Villa, plus look at the impact (or lack of) of certain Villa players. We also grade Jack Grealish's season so far.

Beyond the Villa-verse we travel to India...from Oxford, to take a look at the curious case of Kashif Siddiqi and his move to Real Kashmir, we also discuss the Blues fine from the Jack Grealish incident of last season, before flagging up the rise of a young Norwegian giant taking the Champions League by storm. Oh, and there's another update from our Iranian news desk.
