I'm a literature graduate, prone to being opinionated about anything and everything, but most likely to be found espousing my thoughts on Films, Football (Soccer for my American and Australian friends and readers) and books.
It’s Friday night lights at Villa Park this week, and with it, an opportunity to move on from the frustrating defeat at the hands of Bournemouth on Saturday. This time, Everton are the visitors and it’s a welcome return of two famous old clubs locking horns in the top flight.
In advance of the match we here at Heart of the Holte sought the opinions of Dave Whitehead from agrandoldteam.com (@grandoldteam) (click here to check them out) to give us the lowdown on things from a Toffee’s perspective.
As Villa continue to progress with the building process required in crafting a Premier League squad, there are going to be players who face an uncertain future. There’s already been the cull of the out of contract Championship squad members + the Ross McCormack pay off.
It’s already a fortnight since the day that was, and the realities of Premier League preparations are settling in. The recruitment drive has begun in earnest and it’s fair to say it will be a sizable rebuild that’s required to be as Premiership ready as possible.
