  • What did Cole, Tom, and Seb make of Aston Villa’s 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Villa Park on Wednesday evening?
  • More importantly, what can be made of Villa’s form under Unai Emery, securing 10 out of a possible 15 points?
  • With a very slow start during the first half and Emery’s determination to change things up early on in the second half, things started to really turn around for the Villa. Should we consider this a fair point earned or two points that should not have been dropped?
  • What can be made of Matty Cash’s play as a wide midfielder/winger?
  • The enigma that is Leon Bailey and THAT miss in the final moments of the match...
  • All of this and so much more! Enjoy the podcast and Up The Villa!
