Allan Evans Total Overhaul Needed AND Patience
Villa legend Allan Evans has told www.dailystar.co.uk that Villa fans need to be patient, Paul Lambert has to have time to re-build.
He told the paper:
"Paul Lambert is a fantastic appointment and a young guy who has lots of his own ideas about what needs to be done. But he has a hell of a job on his hands because if you look at Villa`s squad, there`s not enough top quality players there."
He also warns of the expectation levels at Villa and admits that Villa are "crying out for a creative midfielder, like Gordon Cowans. I watched them last season on TV and I was bored. It pains me to say that but it`s true."
"They`re no better than Norwich. But expectancy levels at the club are much higher. It`s not easy for me to say that as I love the club and would walk there tomorrow to help out with the coaching."
He says Villa need to have a total overhaul, 'the whole club` including staff, players, everything`.
Wonder if that means he expects root and branch changes in staff behind the scenes to freshen things up?
Most importantly he adds "Paul will need to be given the time to do that as Villa won`t become top six in one year."
Fair enough, we`ll accept 7th then?!?!?
Evans is the first team coach of Truro College's football academy. He was also involved in the Plymouth Argyle youth set up, but I can`t see any mention of him at the moment on their official website or his wiki page @ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allan_Evans_(footballer)
Our new anthem?!?!?
