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.

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.

Andy Gray joins the Claret & Blue Podcast | The untold stories of an Aston Villa legend | EXCLUSIVE

Let's start with a question: 'Where the f*****g hell is Aston Villa?'Pardon!?It's not often a guest on our Claret & Blue podcast can get away with such a blunt enquiry about our beloved football club, but we'll make an exception for Andy Gray. That was a genuine question the former claret and blue hero asked himself when he found out he was joining Villa as a teenager way back in 1975.To a generation or more Andy Gray is renowned for his football punditry, but before dominating the airwaves he was dominant in the air as Ron Saunders' 70s revival took flight. For all his analysis of the Premier League era, he hasn't spoken much about his playing (and coaching) career at Villa - until now.ğŸŽ™ğŸŽ™ğŸŽ™ Learn more about your ad choices.
