We all know that we are in desperate need of both experience and players to fill the massive gaps in the team, most notably the DM and LB positions, as you can tell from the above, why not try Warnock?
Now, I don’t have a clue what Paul Lamberts problem with him is, he seemed to get a few games in pre season and I thought did ok, then all of a sudden, he gets dropped and then has to train with the kids. I know something went round back in August time that he was spotted at a Kasabian gig or something like that, when the team were playing. But if he wasn’t picked for that game, why shouldn’t he go enjoy himself? Surely that can’t be the reason for his exclusion.
Now, seeing the huge holes we have, especially at LB, why not bring him back in, he needs to put himself in the shop window again, and we need experience, and someone for that position as let’s face it, Bennett is utter rubbish, Lichaj doesn’t seem right and Stevens only has 4 games under his belt and is too vulnerable, to me, that makes two and two.
However, if Warnock has been cast out to dry by Lambert, for no reason, he may turn round and say f**k you Lambert, why should I come to the rescue now and play for you? Would you risk it Lambert has upset him for no reason, I don’t actually think he will come back to the fold; I think Lambert is far too stubborn, but I would give him a chance, can’t do any worse.
At the end of the day though, Aston Villa pay his wages and if I refused to do my job, I’d be sacked with no redundancy pay at all, so that should be the case and get him off the books.
He could also do the role as DM, he used to look useful there for Blackburn I seem to remember. Give him a chance. Definitely can’t do any worse than Delph
Failing that, news this morning that John Arne Riise is free to leave, I’d has him in a flash. Experienced defender, in a position we need, even until the end of the season as a short-term fix.
Not Hutton though, I think Lowton is doing an ok job, better than Hutton could do, but doesn’t anyone know why Lambert doesn’t like him either, apart from being awful?
