Hiphop has sent in this positive article about Paul Lambert.
Aston Villa lie above the relegation zone with 24 points (just one point above the drop line) however there is always one glimmer of hope in my mind that will ensure the survival of this massive, historical club and that is — Paul Lambert.
Paul lambert is never short of optimism and his quirky standoffish persona with the media may irritate, however his professionalism and privacy with his team behind scenes is exactly the type of manager we needed, as opposed to someone like Lee Clark (Birmingham city manager) who publicly slashes his players.
As well as this, Paul Lambert has proven that he has an eye for young and up and coming talent and is one of the few managers that is prepared to utilise them if he thinks they’re ready for the demanding premier league. His smart purchases in the likes of: Christian Benteke, Ashley Westwood, Joe Bennet (who will come good as a midfielder), and Matthew Lowton is very risky but he is starting to reap the benefits of them, as they adapt quickly.
Paul Lambert has also been very unfearful of causing an upset as this club needed a large rejuvenation or a refurbishment if you like. The likes of Alan Hutton and Stephen Warnock left the club and he replaced them with Players such as Ron Vlaar, who is arguably better than the two. He also did the unthinkable and replaced Shay Given with Bradley Guzan and rarely starts Darren Bent over Christian Benteke which in my opinion is something that only the most confident managers would do, and it has certainly payed off to some extent (as both players newly introduced have done brilliantly).
A more obvious change is his attempt of freshening up the style of football that Aston Villa have played and: he urges his players to pass rather than smash the ball up field, which has began to be instilled into the makeup of our players and has worked in snippets (remember that team goal against Liverpool) but shall continue to work as Lambert improves every player more and more.
Paul Lambert has a great track record as well with a Double promotion at Norwich being one of them. He is the ideal man for this job with his ‘three year project’ at Aston Villa, and I understand the frustration that many of us feel, but he definitely knows what he is doing and where he aims Aston Villa to be so remaining faithful and you’ll see!
