Aston Villa Review: Episode 159 - Dalian Atkinson tribute and Villa's start reviewed

If relegation to the Championship has one effect, it's that a single week out of the podcasting racket leaves a backlog of too many matches to review at once. Since we last spoke, Aston Villa have lost at Luton Town, beaten Rotherham United, and drawn against Huddersfield Town and Derby County. There have been new signings, injuries and some horrendous goals conceded, and we talk about them all this week.

But the truth is that the football was overshadowed last week. Former Villa striker Dalian Atkinson died after being tasered by police in Telford, leaving behind a tale of tragedy. Our thoughts go out to the people who loved Dalian personally, of course, and this week's show includes a tribute based on our own love for the man as a giant of our formative football years.
