Wadey: Feeling mildly lambent about Lambert. The countdown begins with only two weeks to go before Villa must cease their dreaming and wishful thinking and face the reality of where exactly they stand in the 21st season of the Premiership. Strong challengers in the inaugural season of 1992-3, but where are they now? Can Paul Lambert pull off a miracle? We wait with baited breath. Full article: Something For The Weekend (388)
