Lambert's Words Are Music To Gabby Ears

Lambert's Words Are Music To Gabby Ears

Gabby Agbonlahor knows the fans are buzzing after the appointment of Paul Lambert, and he says the players are aswell after listening to the new man in his press conference.

Speaking to the Official Site Gabby said he believed that exciting times were ahead under Paul Lambert and the style of play he will want to introduce:

'I think it's great - for the fans especially. They wanted Paul to come to the club and it's come true. This will put a smile on their faces and hopefully that can continue throughout the season. I think if you ask any fan they favour us playing attacking football, it creates a real buzz around the place. For the manager to be saying that we need to bring those things back, I think every fan can be excited.'

Addressing last season, Agbonlahor continued:

'The fans want to see us in that top half of the league and playing attacking football, maybe in some games it won't come off but they'll still be behind the team if we play the way they want us to play. We've had a couple of tough seasons, it was almost heartbreaking for us last term and I think a lot of the players will be coming back wanting to prove that we are a better side than we showed.'

The question is, who do we give the chance to do that to? Some of them clearly don't deserve it.

Anyone would think the players had nothing to do with the disappointments of the last two years. Not me guv seems to be the message. Having seen the coaches trying to get them motivated during games, I don't quite believe it.

I think Gabby deserves a chance to be played in an attacking team, playing in a defensive sitting back team is not going to get the best out of any strikers, under Lambert we can build towards a better style of play and with a bit of luck we may surprise a few people by the end of the season, top 7 is not impossible Spurs are going to lose a few of there stars and unceratinty about there manager, Newcsatle will struggle with the demands of the europa league as Ashley has said he will not increase wages to compensate a bigger squad, Liverpool will struggle adapting to Rodgers, yep you have heard it here 1st ;)

agree Gordonsleftboot. Players got off scott free for two seasons. Now? NO MORE. Shut up or put up. Would love to see the sulkers, underachievers and those who clearly are all words and no action either leave or start to play as they bloody well should on their wages and pay back to the fans the support they have been given. Big season for Gabby at Villa if he stays, which he prob will unless MON comes in I'd think. Up to him which way his career goes now. 9 goals in two seasons, no matter how much you dislike the manager or how much you believe yourself to be out of position, is not enough for a player of that quality.

Look forward to seeing who Lambert decides to keep and who he pushes outward. Hope Gabby stays and fits into a more attacking team and hope whether they like each other or not, him and Bent find a way to compliment each other for the 90mins during a game (and I don't mean 'nice hair mate' compliments!)

gabby has just about annoyed me enough now with his performances... his contribution is so poor its untrue. we lose bent who arguably runs less and tackles less and his loss was huge for us. gabby should have been able to do a job when bent was gone and it simply didn't happen.. he can't score at all and if gabby was that good... he could have easily filled in bents role. it didn't happen and he didn't score at all when bent got injured. if someone comes for him we should sell him

Time gabby moved on, he is taking up the squad number and wages of a decent player. Same with Delph, Dunne, Collins and Warnock. Delfoneuso gone too. I would like to see Hutton given a chance as he showed vast improvement in the latter stages of the campaign and after all hadn't played competitive football for two years, same with Ireland and bring back Makoun and give him a chance to prove himself.

I'd keep Collins though. He's a unit!

I for one hope he stays and that Lambert gets the best out of him. In a decent side, in his correct position and injury free Gabby could be superb, he just needs a couple of goals to get his confidence up.

I wouldn't mind if he stayed, to give him one last season that he can cut it as a top Premier League striker, but if we got a decent offer in for him (£7mill+) I'd let him go. He can't just blame the managers, because whenever he has managed to get a one on one with the keeper in the past 2 years his finishing has been woeful!
