The Athletic's Gregg Evans joins Dan Bardell to bring you an exclusive interview with Howard Hodgson, the Villa fan who nearly bought the club.
Howard shares his story on how close he came to a takeover, and discusses Villa's financial plight at the time.
They also debate Jack Grealish's role for England. Why is Gareth Southgate so unwilling to find a place for Jack in his team? And is Mings set to replace Harry Maguire in the starting XI?
They also build up to the Premier League match against Leicester and focus on the career of Ollie Watkins.
