Since Villa failed to reach the League Cup final there has been a lot of talk about Paul Lambert’s future. Well, it’s been answered; not from Lerner himself but through rumours and speculation across the internet. Lerner can’t afford to sack and hire a new manager, and it’s not his policy. We’ll see Lambert for the rest of the season and beyond; even if we get relegated.
Lambert and Lerner spoke after the game and the rumours are about transfer activity. There is some money available but not much, Lambert has already spent 20 million this summer (that’s a lot) but will be able to buy more players.
I personally blame Lambert for our failure to progress, but that is an article for another time. For now we have an idea of what is the future of Villa. Lambert will stay, he needs to add EXPERIENCED players. Forget youth, we’ve got to much of it.
