It's Christmas! Well, nearly. Aston Villa kicked off the festive period with an improved performance in difficult circumstances at Newcastle United, where torrential rain threatened the match itself but Villa's players worked through the conditions and a first half Newcastle goal to push for a win in the sodden second half, eventually taking a point.
In this week's show Chris and Steve assess Villa's performance on Tyneside and discuss whether draws picked up here and there are of any use to Villa whatsoever. We also look ahead to the first couple of Christmas fixtures with previews of West Ham United's Boxing Day visit to Villa Park and Villa's bank holiday trip to Norwich City.
