I will not say the Forest game proves anything or not.
However for a number of seasons it has been obvious we are missing a strong and determined Central Midfielder. Can anyone really be convinced by the midfield today. The problem is that when it comes to the West Ham game it will be the players that start.
Lambert is no fool at all and he can not believe a midfield starting lined up of KEA, Bannan and Ireland will work in the Premier League. I have posted many times how we need some power in that midfield and all today proved was that was correct.
Now I know many of you will have read my thoughts on Ireland before. Frankly I totally disagree with a lot of Villa fans on him. If he is to be successful he needs behind the two midfielders to do all the donkey work. We do not have them. Without those players in the team he becomes a liability.
Look at the squad and look at the midfield resources does that not actually scare you on how poor they are.
I am not reacting to today’s game. I have said this all close season. All today did was to prove what I was saying was correct. Lambert will know this and what really worries me is that the money is not there unless we sell someone and would clubs pay money for whats left ?
