Absolutely Huge Season For Albrighton

Marc Albrighton has admitted that he has an 'absolutely huge' season ahead of him as he looks to impress Paul Lambert.

Speaking to the Official Site Albrighton explained that with him sitting out the two clashes last season against Norwich, that he has to take his opportunity to impress the new boss and to be fair, he needs to show he can kick on and become more consistent in the eyes of the fans.

'It really is a fresh challange for me because I didn't play in either of the Norwich games last season, so the gaffer hasn't seen me up close on the pitch. It's a massive season and one I am relishing. I had a first season which was good but the second wasn't so good, this third season is absolutely huge for me.'

Albrighton also confirms that the nagging thigh injury he carried at the end of last season has cleared up well, so he's fit and raring to go in pre season.

It certainly is a big season for Albie. He's got to win over a lot of fans who don't see any progress in his game, and he was poor last season as he acknowledges. All players, apart from those who are serial wastes of a wage, should get a clean sheet from last season but they can't hide behind Eck, the atmospshere or his tactics (lack of) anymore. We need to see a flying Albie, delivering dangerous crosses from game one and I live in hope that we do.

massive season, hope he is up for it (I'm sure he is) and up to it (I still hope and pray he is!)
The Fear
Morning folks, I think Albrighton can definitely still do a job. I think he needs a few months to recapture confidence and form, he strikes me as a confidence player. What I'm saying is that we shouldn't write him off too quickly. We played quite narrow last year, and I'm not sure the team set up suited his natural abilities, however, he still looked below par. This is definitely a big year for him, but I certainly hope he gets a chance and takes it with both hands.

I hope so too....he deserves more of a chance. He's young enough to build on any confidence etcthat Lambert andCo can instil into him.
Pride of Lions
I believe he is talented and it most probably a confidence thing, same as Gabby I think, But if he doesn't make it next season he really needs to go out on loan to a newly promoted side, I believe if we get rid of him end of next season if he has a poor one we won't get much for him at all, I do think he will become a regular prem footballer, just needs time and confidence.

No pressure then :)
