What is Villa's best centre-back combo now?The show looks at the midfield situation in more detail with it very much highlighted as the key to Villa's success, if Gerrard gets it right.In the Three Points there's also talk about smart scarves, England Women's Euros win and a way fans can choose a team's transfer target.Don't forget to subscribe and follow the show on all social media at @myoldmansaidEnjoy!BECOME A MY OLD MAN SAID MEMBER!
