GarethVilla has submitted this and it makes up for a good debate.
BBC sports have just produced a managerial performance chart and not surprisingly it makes dreadful reading as a Villa fan.
As I scrolled down the list and then scrolled down some more, I eventually found our current ‘manager’ placed as high as 107th!
Nicely sandwiched between Roberto Martinez, whom we failed to attract to the club and of course Alex McLeish.
Makes shocking reading and really shows up Randy Lerner and Paul Faulkner for what they are-a pair of clueless fools who wouldn’t recognise a good manager if he disguised himself as Ron Saunders.
For the last 3 years the club has been run into the ground by these two and I’m afraid we have bitten off more than we can chew this season with relegation looking certain.
It’s a sad and frustrating time to be a Villa fan.
This chart has also caught my attention, the stats are absolutely revolting. Lambert has managed 0.84 points per game. That’s pretty poor, but I still can’t blame Lerner because there was honestly no other managerial targets. At the time, I was very happy with Lambert; a young ambitious manager. Of course I’d rather have the likes of Di Matteo or someone with a good CV, but at the time it wasn’t a reality. Now, we need to stick with our manager and support our team. But this BBC chart definitely makes for a horrid read, especially since we have to scroll almost to the very bottom!
