PAUL LAMBERT - Approach Expected In Next 24 Hours

PAUL LAMBERT - Approach Expected In Next 24 Hours

Sky Sports have just had an interview with Midlands Sky correspondent Pete Colley.

He said it is his understanding that Paul Lambert is Villa's number one target and they will approach within the next 24 hours to speak with him.

Pete goes on to say 'I fully expect him to be named the next Villa manager in the next 7 days'.

The report also suggests that although Roberto Martinez was interested in the job, it is the Norwich manager they want.

Congratulations you are our 4th choice, do you feel special, only kidding I know we don't really know who they have and have not spoken to, and it what order, but damn it is taking a while, seeing as Dalglish was sacked after Mccrap and Liverpool now have a new manager and we might be announcing something in the next 7 days, maybe
30/05/2012 20:14:00
Will he bring his Butler with him.......sorry bored :-) Either him or Martinez but why the wait, let's get it done and start chasing any transfer targets please.

What the hell takes us so long? And why 7 days, why not tomorrow? So bored of all this by now, I bet come next week it WON'T be Lambert and they're will be more hulabaloo about who it is or isn't! So bored but excited at the same time I cannae take nae more!

I can see this ending with more public embarassment for the club
30/05/2012 20:30:00
I know we don't know whats going on, and who has been approached or not etc etc but it seems like a huge coincidence that we announce we're going to talk to Lambert after Martinez decides to stay Wigan.

Happy if this goes through, Lambert was my orginal 'head' choice, OGS was the 'heart'. Seems like he doesnt take any crap which is EXACTLY what Villa needs at the moment, ive got a funny feeling Dunne and co wont be stepping out of line with this chap as they will be playing for new contracts next season. Carte Blanche if he takes takes the job as the squad is so bare, lets hope he has some interesting transfer targets. My main worry is that he's never had any cash to spend before so we could end up with loads more overpriced U.K players.

Just thought id add, what happens if he turns us down!?
30/05/2012 20:44:00
We say to someone, congratulations you are our 5th choice, do you feeel special....
30/05/2012 20:46:00
What's the problem? Rodgers said no to meeting Liverpoo and they went for him after talking to Martinez and others. Lambert said he was happy at Norwich and we go for him after talking to others. The order of the meetings with candidates we may never know, but Lambert has always been high on the list according to those itk. Martinez and Whelan deserve each other, we deserve a winner. Go and get your man, Randy, before it's too late, then we can, hopefully, all back Paul Lambert's Claret and Blue Army.
