Interesting - Lambert Took O'Neill Advice On Villa

Interesting bit from the press conference, Lambert confirms he did speak to Martin O'Neill.

This might at last put pay to the talk that MON is anti the Villa and the board etc.

(Note to self, stop getting so angry re: MON now! LOL)

He says MON was very complimentary about the Club and encouraged.

Very interesting.

Fear, it would take a lot more than some compliments abour our club by O'Neill for me to change my mind about him. As far as I am concerned he is a very big part of what happened to the Villa over the past two seasons. Anyway enough on him, great to have Paul Lambert unvailed, now hoopefully we will be closerr to the top 6 than the bottom 6. COTVABU

LOL Fear, just waiting for you or Mike to bite mate. Know loads of people who've met him at Wycombe and no-one had a bad word to say. Same with Lambert although he's a bit drier/doesn't like the sound of his own voice compared to MON!!!

agree Irish Villa, I'm fed up being angry, any player that stays I want to give a clean slate and all that jazz. How long will that last then!? LOL

MON would recommend, we give generous payouts to departing managers.

Can't see how MON could be negative towards us a club. We gave him total control and a lot of money to spend, surely that's what any manager would dream of? Its his fault the £80m squad (net spend over 5 years) he assembled was not actually worth anything near that.

Have to agree son_of....MON was like a kid in the proverbial sweet shop - never had the sort of money available before (even at Celtic) and just got totally carried away. Had Deadly been in situ instead of Randy, he might not have got away with one or two of the signings. But letting players come in for huge fees and wages (Reo-Coker, for example) and letting them go for nothing, well surely the board have to take a long hard look at themselves. In any event, it's done now, let's hope the board have learned from their mistakes and give Paul Lambert the backing he needs, and let's hope Lambert is a bit more transfer-savvy than O'Neill was. That way, we might sign one or two decent players and actually win a few matches.
