My Old Man Said Aston Villa Podcast – Episode 12 It's been almost three weeks since the last My Old Man Said podcast. Apologies for the delay, but we have been migrating the podcast over to podcast specialist hosts Acast. They don't accept everyone, so we are happy [...]
I've seen Leeds comments that have suggested that this is a massive fixture.
And indeed it is.
The current top two big clubs in the Championship are us and Newcastle; that's without doubt, in my opinion.
The next level might be a bit more debatable and you could include Norwich as next on [...]

The Villa Appetiser: Leeds United v Aston Villa 2016 It's been a while since we played this weekend's opponents. The last time we headed to Elland Road, James Milner was in Leed's starting XI. Three points against Leeds, who we play for the first time since the 2003/04 season, would [...]
After drawing against Brighton and Hove Albion and enduring a tough matchup against Cardiff City, Aston Villa Football Club is getting ready to take on Leeds United twice in the month of December. The first match will take place on 3rd December at Elland Road and the second match will [...]
Championship football has brought with it an array of surprises for Villa fans. Perhaps the biggest shock of all was the return of a certain Gabriel Agbonlahor. Somehow managing to make the bench against the Blues, Agbonlahor then made his first start since March against Brighton and Hove Albion. Under [...]
By Ashley Preece INSTEAD of being the centrepiece of Aston Villa's jigsaw for immediate promotion, Ross McCormack is rapidly becoming the odd piece. McCormack Rep Everyone knows his exploits in the Championship – he's a one-in-two striker and has been for nearly a decade (116 goals in 303 appearances before [...]
By Thomas O'Brien Slow Start Having been banned for three games after picking up a ban in his first game under Steve Bruce, it's been a slow transition into the new Villa manager's plans for Jack Grealish. With Villa dropping a level this season, Villa's Championship campaign was seen as [...]
Eerie Elland Road The unbeaten run continues under Steve Bruce as Cardiff were rolled over by an impressive home display spearheaded by Jonathan Kodjia, who picked up the PFA Player of the Month. A late Saturday night kick off will leave Steve Bruce with a lot to think about however [...]
Katie Wilkinson writes about the injury that has temporarily put a halt to her footballing. We're absolutely thrilled to present Katie Wilkinson as a part-time writer on the site. She is one of the stars of the Aston Villa Ladies squad, but has had to sit out from injury [...]
This weekend we play a similarly famous old team with which we have plenty in common.
More than many other teams, Leeds United can teach us a lesson about the dangers of bad form and bad decisions.
The club has really suffered in the last few years but fans are enjoying a [...]
Jack and Robert are joined by Jon Mackenzie to talk about Leeds United Unbeaten in seven games, Aston Villa have found a run of form for the first time in several seasons. This weekend, Steve Bruce's side will travel to Elland Road for a Saturday primetime match against Leeds United. [...]
Kodjia is so good, and the Professional Footballers' Association agrees A hardy congratulations to Jonathan Kodjia for being awarded The Professional Footballers' Association player of the month for November. It was well deserved and celebrated by the club, fans, and fellow players. The ridiculous and joyful gif (hard g) below [...]
Despite the poor start made during Di Matteo's reign, the Villans have been hard to beat this season. In fact, only one team has lost fewer games than Aston Villa so far. The trouble has been the number of draws, leading to a gradual accumulation of points. That team that [...]
I have no doubt that Leeds is a wonderful city, but why is it that over the last 100 years the city has been associated with more football irregularities than any other place? It's about that length of time ago that the Leeds City club went under after “financial irregularities” [...]
There is this thing around Leeds that I simply don't get. Sure, they had a time under David O'Leary where they were playing in the Champions League, but David O'Leary took them backwards and continued that decline with us. But that's because football began with the Premier League.
Before that, [...]
Chester, who led Villa to victory this weekend despite a broken nose, is quickly emerging as Villa's best defender and defensive leader. James Chester, despite suffering a broken nose two weeks ago at Brighton, was Villa's standout defender in Saturday's win against Cardiff City. Chester's partner in the center [...]
Neil is the worst man ever. I'm going to preface this prose of pettiness by telling you right now I've got absolutely nothing against Cardiff City and I wish them all of the success that this world can hopefully bring to them. Ideally it won't be under Neil Warnock, though.
Embed from Getty ImagesVictory over Cardiff certainly improves the mood, edging Villa closer to the dizzying heights of The Championship playoffs.We are used, after-all, to staring at a trapdoor of late. Looking upwards is almost a new concept.Glancing back at what has been an eventful few months, the club [...]
I wrote something yesterday about expecting a win because we're Aston Villa and we should be expecting to beat Cardiff. The truth is, we should be expecting to beat most teams in this League and I hope that most see this.
Those that don't understand that will get lost in [...]

What can I say Uncle Steves Claret and Blue Army marches on and on. All of a sudden the life support machine has been switched off but we didn't die we rose from the dead to fight our way back to where we belong!
Bruce has done wonders so far [...]
After Steve Bruce goes seven games unbeaten and Villa can suddenly have the play-off places in sight. This episode looks at the last couple of Villa games, the promotion picture and the game against Leeds. Also, Jedinak, Grealish, Westwood and the Villa midfield are all under the microscope. Then there's [...]

Aston Villa's modest but essential revival under Steve Bruce continued this past weekend with a 3-1 home victory against Cardiff City.
