Confirmed: Paul Lambert new Villa boss


Recommended Posts

Don't shoot the messenger, didn't think this would fit the McLeish or Lerner thread so starting a new topic.

National newspapers The Sun and the Daily Express are running articles that we are after Paul Lambert to replace McLeish, even if we stay up.

Exclusive: ASTON VILLA could turn to Paul Lambert if they sack Alex McLeish.

Villa Park bosses will review McLeish’s position regardless of whether the team remains in the Premier League.

A run of one win in 13 games has left the Midlanders just three points clear of third-bottom Bolton.

Tuesday’s defeat to the Trotters means Villa will end the season with their lowest tally of home league victories since they were formed 138 years ago.

Owner Randy Lerner and chief executive Paul Faulkner have publicly backed the boss

But Big Eck, an unpopular appointment after managing rivals Birmingham, looks doomed and the Villa hierarchy have been impressed by Lambert.

The Scotsman, 42, has taken Norwich to successive promotions and guided them to a safe position in the Premier League.

The Canaries, who host Villa on the last day of the season, would fight all the way to keep Lambo.

But if they were forced to look for a new boss, Cardiff chief Malky Mackay — a ex-Norwich hero — would be a contender along with Birmingham’s Chris Hughton.

The Sun: Lambo Leap

Express: Lambo high on Villa List

We bring in Lambo, Blues lose Houghton to Norwich. Perfect scenario :lol:.

Been on Norwich's PinkUn forum. Heres some reasons for him to leave for us from one of their fans.

Wealthy owners prepared to bankroll him if he chooses to rebuild the squad.

A better collective squad of players including fringe England players

A bigger club with a bigger fan base and larger stadium

Freedom to rebuild the club his way

Bigger transfer budget

Bigger personal salary

Higher profile club and a good stepping stone to prove he can do it at a bigger club than NCFC

Closer to home

Not sure about the "Wealthy owners prepared to bankroll him if he chooses to rebuild the squad" part though!

Our manager appears to be quite rubbish. Lambert appears to be quite good. Aston Villa is a bigger club than Norwich, but lower in the table.

Therefore: we would be mad not to want to get Lambert in and we probably do want him in. But there's almost certainly nothing in this story at this stage.

There. I've stated the obvious. Anyone posting in this thread from now on will have to go beyond the obvious. Good luck :)

Would be nice but focusing on anything other than the next three games would be very silly. Get safe, sack McLeish, hire whoever...

I prefer, Sack Mcliesh, get safe, hire whoever.

Well unfortunately that ain't happening man! McRelegation is here until the end of the season.

This would be exactly what we did last year with Houllier.

It's never a matter of "whoever". It MUST be the right man.

Well if we went down he'd be mad to leave Norwich to come to this mess! In fact, even if we stay up he'd be mad to leave Norwich to come to this mess! He's done an amazing job with Norwich. I like him and I would welcome him. Let's see where we find ourselves in three weeks time first though.

Hopes spring is eternal mate :) Besides I think if/when he loses at WBA even this board will recognise sacking him is our only chance of getting any points from the final two games. They are idiotic not to recognise it now.
