Martinez v Lambert - No, Not A Fight!

Martinez v Lambert - No, Not A Fight!

I know there are already threads on each individual however I wanted to put their records up against each other.

A lot of people have said they would accept "Anyone but McLeish" but I think we need to be careful.

This next appointment is MASSIVE for Randy, Aston Villa and us, it HAS to be right.

So I wanted to look at their records in management so far.

Martinez: (Forum thread: Roberto Martinez )

Started off with Swansea and was there for just over 2 years - they won 50% of their games under Martinez with a record of W63 D37 L26

He moved to Wigan in the summer of 2009 and while he has kept them in the premiership he has only won 26.77% of his games, with a record of W34 D36 L57

Each season he has left it late, with Wigan having a good run of 8-10 games and keeping them up.

Lambert (Forum thread: Paul Lambert )

Lambert started off his career at a small club in Livingstone, it didn't go well and he only won 15% of his games and he resigned in under a year

He moved on to Wycombe, where he led them to the League Cup semi-finals, beating Prem sides Fulham and Charlton Athletic. then in the semi-final against Premier League champions Chelsea they drew at home, before losing the away leg. This was the first time in over 30 years a fourth tier team had reached that stage of the League Cup.

He won 40% of his games with a record of W44 D29 L35

He left after Wycombe failed to gain promotion in the play offs.

He joined Colchester, if only for a short period, but in that time he had a 44% win percentage with a record of W19 D7 L17

Now he is at Norwich, who he joined after he beat them 7-1 with his old team Colchester, he has 49% win percentage, playing some exciting stuff using players from the lower leagues. His record here is W70 D33 L37

The facts and stats show that Lambert has improved every time he has moved, currently on a near 50% win percentage with a team like Norwich after a full season in the Premiership.

As much as Martinez plays a good style, its not got a lot of substance to it until the final 8 games of a season.

If I had to have one, I would have Lambert.

i really think lerner has had enough - his statement really sent out a huge message to me and is demanding more.. he wanted martinez and i think he will be determined to get him now. paul lambert is best buds with MON - very doubt it that villa are gonna get him

I'd prefer Lambert but we've got to remember the resources available to Martinez at Wigan. They have no right to be in this division year after year yet they are. He's doing nothing less than miracles at the DW. Wigan would probably be the smallest club in the Championship, never mind the Premier League. Give me Lambert though :)

Agree with that. Martinez clearly has players with talent but can't get a consistent season out of them. Staying in the Prem is an achievement for any young manager but I think Wigan could be doing better. We should cast the net wide (although Stan Collymore says there are 4 on the list: 2 in jobs and 2 not) but I would be more than happy to give Lambert some time to give his way a go.

Although I agree that, out of the 2, Lambert is probably the better choice, history shows that AVFC and Scots managers don't mix - in fact they have been nothing short of disastrous when they have - Docherty, Mcneil, Mcleish, and, to be honest, I tend to cringe every time I hear the accent now lol Villas-Boas is doing nothing - AND has a good name!

Both good managers, both styles of Football are better, Martinez for me is a little more appealing but i wonder what Lambert can do for Villa after doing so well with a team with so many Championship players in Norwich side.
