Malcolm has sent this piece in, in his usual combative style !
Looks like this Lambert chap has got the Villa fans reeling, amazing stuff.
I’ve heard the odd whinge, ‘he only buys from lower division clubs’, ‘he spent 4 mill on a 70 year old’, ‘wait and see if he can buy foreign players, I doubt it’
Pretty lame really considering the vile reputation the media have built around the Villa patronage, often rightly deserved though, so this Lambert chap must have something going for him.
Or is that the problem, I mean does he have anything going for him. Lets face it he’s a virtual unknown in PL media terms. He and that Rodgers bloke both have a low profile, neither have built a big profile, neither have done much apart from impress those that matter at their respective clubs. Good for them its a refreshing change, especially at Villa, to have a manager sans any baggage and good luck to him too.
As there isn’t a transfer embargo as part of his deal I wonder who he’ll spend on.
That Holt fella, you know the 70 year old who keeps scoring goals, or perhaps that other Irish old man who probably saved last season for us, Keane. But then with a fit Bent and Gabby and Weimann too do we need either.
They have a few decent midfield players too do Norwich.
Nah, those are the sort of players the whingers will have a field day with, so lets go for some real stars, like Nzogbia, or Ireland, oops sorry.
I found it interesting, which is rare coming from Faulkners lips, that he has money to spend and will be changing the squad around, bringing in and swapping out several. (Can I add a little whinge here, something I’m not prone too, normally, but can he please, please get rid of that Hutton chap)
Now one of my concerns since Mon quit in Europe was the lack of a decent squad, its been a disaster waiting to happen for some time and as the kids couldn’t fill the holes the disaster hit last season, helped in big parts to our wonderful manager of course.
So how many will be shipped out I wonder and why, to cover the costs of those coming in.
No, Randy wouldn’t be that calculating now would he.
I’m actually looking forward to this bloke Lambert to see how he operates in the Claret and Blue and its been a long time since I’ve said that about a Villa manager. A very long time in fact. In the meantime I’ll have to suffice with another poor England showing and a heroic effort from the Irish, followed by some excellent swimming performances and some amazing close encounters in the Olympics, before the start of August and kickoff.
How about you?
