Confirmed: Paul Lambert new Villa boss


Recommended Posts

Hope McNasty has had to eat a large slice of one of Delia's homemade humble pies! Apparently chatting to a Norwich fan last night on twitter his wife has filed divorce papers recently as well. Maybe she thinks the nickname Norwich fans gave him suits!

A bit distasteful imo, Julie (sorry!)

A bit distasteful imo, Julie (sorry!)

On this occasion methinks it's fully warranted - That CEO knows full well that Villa & Lambert acted properly and yet he did his best to intimate the opposite. I notice he didn't dare overtly say anything outright though - it was all implied.

Besides it was a Norwich fan who was bandying that info about last night - and it was THEY that nicknamed him McNasty.

Not sure people's sensitivities to supposed distasteful comments by posters normally is much of a problem on VT neither!

I'd say we have done well out of this , Norwich have been paying the Salaries of Culverhouse and Karsa during the off season .so basically them sitting around doing nothing and we get them just as the players get back.
Ha ha, good point.

It was the bit about his divorce - for me that part of his life has nowt to do with his career in football - that made me uncomfortable. Vile tabloid stuff.

NCFC and those running the club have been nothing short of a disgrace over this since the middle of May, believe me.

Those who will know my posts on this site for the last two years will be aware that I am not one who is in the business of heaping praise on our owner and would be more than willing to see fault in his behaviour. However, over this he has acted incredibly well. There is no fault on his part. He is now trying to correct a situations we have at our club and trying to employ the right people and give them the right backing. Hats off to him.

The fault / blame / bad behaviour is entirely with NCFC, I can say no more than that

This. It's well documented from several clubs that Villa are impeccable to deal with and Randy does the best he knows how. Barring the poaching of McLeish!

IIRC he who shall not be named left Blues because of dodgy goings on behind the scenes. We didn't poach him.

The fact that we paid them for the privilege of having him would suggest otherwise?

Rather than go to yet another tribunal with Peter spouting rolex to the press about it?

With all the acrimony that would have entailed perhaps. It would appear we just paid them off to avoid the hassle as there

was so much acrimony over the appointment in anycase.

Disastrous appointment I concede but Lerner & Co go to great pains to do things properly. PF is now on the FA Council.

Wasn't always the case as in DOL days AVFC were fined for tapping up Beattie IIRC.

McNally did very well by himself. He ignored a clause in a contract which meant Norwich were no longer entitled to anything from the pursuing club. If he hadn't ignored it, we would have arrived at the same position as now except Norwich would have a few more sheckles in their pocket. So he clearly messed up. But McNally knows perception is key, so he played it cleverly to his fans and pretended to play hardball with Villa for the coaches.

Fans as a general rule never want to acknowledge that their club is the one that messed up, so the Norwich fans were too ready to believe their chairman when he started ranting about Big Bad Villa. We got our manager. We got him for free. If we had done something wrong, a clearly motivated McNally would have dragged us through the courts. He hasn't done that. The only compo they are entitled to now is whatever was left (if anything) for Culverhouse and Karsa. Given that it's now July, it's likely they'll get nothing for them. Any hero status McNally has in Norwich is down to the fans' reluctance or downright refusal to look at the facts of what happened rather than burying their heads and saying 'no no, Villa are bad, la la la'.

Brief McNally history lesson for you.

When he joined us as CEO in League 1, we were weeks away from administration and approx 32 million in debt.

Now, just 3 years and two promotions on, that debt is now in single figures, plus he got us Lambert.

He's also now a shareholder and director..........yes, he's earned his hero status to us.

Patronising word removed.

Nobody cares, just go away.

Your old gaffer has moved onto bigger and better things, get over it.

Despite what you lot think, we're a bigger club than you, and always will be, so **** off.

Second season syndrome ahoy for you boys.

I guarantee not a single person here other than yourself could give a single flying toss.

*Yawn*.

So did Lambert but a lot of your fans seem to have turned on him. Without Lambert Norwich and Mcnally would probably still be down in league 1 with mountains of debt as no premier league money.

Granted he got Lambert in so he deserves a bit of praise for that.
