Well, I found this comment from today’s press conference from Paul Lambert.
“Speculation about players is something you can never do anything about. That happens. It happens with managers as well and you can’t stop that,” he said. “If my players get linked with other teams there is not a thing I can do about that. It is the same situation about myself. It is extremely unfair with me being linked with Aston Villa when they have got a really good manager up there who is doing everything he can to stay in the league. It is an unfair comment for me to say anything on that.”
Not sure on the ‘really good manager’ bit but when you do not get an outright denial then the conclusion is clear from that.
Added to this, Radio WM have just tweeted
Just interviewed McLeish, he says he hurt more than anyone at Villa Park on Tuesday night. Is focussing on the next three and not long term.
Now you may say I am hoping for something by linking things together but whebn OUR manager says he is not looking at the long term, HE IS GONE.
