UNAI EMERY HAS TRANSFORMED THE FORTUNES OF ASTON VILLA'S FUTURE | Claret & Blue

It's the start of May now and we still can't quite believe what we're seeing from Unai Emery's Aston Villa. The transformation in the fortunes of the club from November to now cannot be understated, and whatever happens in the final games of the 22/23 season, Villa fans have a team they can be proud of. There were a handful of players at the end of the Steven Gerrard era that you may have thought weren't good enough to mount a charge on the Top 6 and needed shipping out. Six months later, not only has Unai Emery got those players ticking again, they've arguably all doubled in value and become even better footballers. ğŸŽ™ğŸŽ™ GET TICKETS TO CLARET & BLUE LIVE: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2223-season-review-qa-claret-blue-live-tickets-628396901047 DONATE TO OUR HALF MARATHON EFFORT: https://www.gofundme.com/f/claret-blue-x-great-birmingham-run Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/ClaretBluePod Dan Rolinson: https://twitter.com/DanRolinson John Townley: https://twitter.com/JohnTownley11 Learn more about your ad choices.

POST MATCH DEBRIEF: Manchester United 1-0 Aston Villa

Unai Emery's 10 match unbeaten streak with Aston Villa comes to an end away at Old Trafford. A first half goal from Bruno Fernandes was enough to seal all three points for the home side, and Villa failed to score in a match under Emery for the first time. Villa's quest for European qualification is not yet over though, with 4 games still to go, there's plenty to play for. ğŸŽ™ğŸŽ™ DONATE TO OUR HALF MARATHON EFFORT: https://www.gofundme.com/f/claret-blue-x-great-birmingham-run Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/ClaretBluePod Dan Rolinson: https://twitter.com/DanRolinson John Townley: https://twitter.com/JohnTownley11 Learn more about your ad choices.

ALEX MORENO IS THE PERFECT EXAMPLE OF UNAI EMERY'S TRANSFER STRATEGY | Claret & Blue

The impact Alex Moreno has had at Aston Villa cannot be overstated. When the Spaniard became Emery's first signing in January, eyebrows may have been raised at the 'lesser' transfer fee, and whether he'd displace Lucas Digne from the side. Fast forward a couple of months and Alex Moreno is so important to Aston Villa's style of play under Emery, and has been a vital cog in Villa's charge up the table. ğŸŽ™ğŸŽ™ DONATE TO OUR HALF MARATHON EFFORT: https://www.gofundme.com/f/claret-blue-x-great-birmingham-run Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/ClaretBluePod Dan Rolinson: https://twitter.com/DanRolinson John Townley: https://twitter.com/JohnTownley11 Learn more about your ad choices.

WHY OLLIE WATKINS DESERVES A NEW ASTON VILLA CONTRACT | Claret & Blue

Ollie Watkins has been putting in the hard yards at Bodymoor Heath, staying behind for extra training sessions and working on his finishing. Scoring 6 goals in 8 games in 2023, Watkins' hard-work is paying off. Despite an England snub by Gareth Southgate recently (more time on the training field with Unai Emery!) - we firmly believe Ollie Watkins should receive a brand new Aston Villa contract. ğŸŽ™ğŸŽ™ DONATE TO OUR HALF MARATHON EFFORT: https://www.gofundme.com/f/claret-blue-x-great-birmingham-run Keep up to date with our latest episodes: https://bit.ly/37960mR Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/ClaretBluePod Send a question to our podcast mail-bag: https://bit.ly/3kK9Y8u Dan Rolinson: https://twitter.com/DanRolinson Ashley Preece: https://twitter.com/PreeceObserver #avfc #astonvilla #premierleague Learn more about your ad choices.

Claret & Blue Podcast #133 | LET'S TALK ABOUT THE VILLA PARK ATMOSPHERE

"It's not as good as it used to be" and "It's trendy to have a moan about Villa Park" are two contrasting opinions you'll see amongst the Aston Villa fanbase in regards to the atmosphere at Villa Park. Can the club itself do anything differently? Do the players have to inspire the crowd, or do the crowd inspire the players? What about Project B6 and their efforts? There's lots to discuss when it comes to the Villa Park atmosphere, so let's do just that. #AVFC #UTV Follow Project B6 on Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/ProjectB6_ Daniel Storey's article: https://inews.co.uk/sport/football/west-ham-aston-villa-moyes-emery-mediocre-2203710 DONATE TO OUR HALF MARATHON EFFORT: https://www.gofundme.com/f/claret-blue-x-great-birmingham-run ğŸŽ™ğŸŽ™ Keep up to date with our latest episodes: https://bit.ly/37960mR Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/ClaretBluePod Send a question to our podcast mail-bag: https://bit.ly/3kK9Y8u Mat Kendrick: https://twitter.com/MatKendrick Dan Rolinson: https://twitter.com/DanRolinson #premierleague Learn more about your ad choices.
