The Warwickshire and England duo discussed their passion for Villa, reaveling their favourite games and top current and past players.

Bell - man of the series in the recent Ashes victory over Australia - and his team-mate Woakes also give an insight into coping with pressure as top sportsmen.

They give their score predictions for the Magpies game too.

Also in this week's show, Fabian Delph talks about the great family feel at Villa and stresses his desire to open his goalscoring account in the league.

We hear from striker Andreas Weimann about the impact of the crowd as Villa's players go in search of their first points at home this term.

The show closes by reliving some past goals scored against Newcastle in B6, including efforts from Tommy Johnson, Andy Townsend and Dwight Yorke.
