Lambert Won't Be Rushed On Signings

Lambert Won't Be Rushed On Signings

Paul Lambert has said that whilst he could flood the club with players who'll never play, he'll wait and see when it comes to additional signings.

Rumours were rife yesterday again linking us to Andy Carroll, following speculation about Kenwyne Jones and Jermaine Defoe, but Lambert won't be drawn or rushed.

Asked the question of whether we are in the hunt for a new front man, the boss said:

'I don't know. I will wait and see. You could flood your place with people that might not get a game. For the ones that do come in you have to make sure they're right. We will wait and see.'

Lambert did however say he'd love a squad of 54 players, and added:

'Losing Gabby has been a blow for us.'

Clear as mud that ain't it!

Lambert has his poker face on. Obviously Mr Chairman wants to wait until the end of the transfer window so he can hammer the prices down and ensure we have a couple of weeks without extra wages. I can imagine that phone call now and I'm sure the target clubs have got the message, I'm sure they already know who they want. We would just like to know. We are professional fans after all.

I'd want a couple of new wingers - we need better service or Gabby/Bent won't fire. olofthegreat, Dempsey is a good shout, but is a little old now.

Hijack Sunderland's move for Adam Johnson. Bargain at £10m.

Villa wont sign Dempsey and Dempsey wouldnt chose Villa when he can go to sit on the Liverpool bench like all modern day footballers... Our days of paying top whack for ageing players are gone and also he is the type who may be useless when he moves, Right player at right club now for me

Lambert is doing what our club does best, keeping things close to their chest1 We don't do our business in the media

Would take Charlie Adam for 5 mill. Think he could give us the drive we need in midfield and link the midfield to the attack. As far as wingers go pity Albrighton got such a long term injury think this manager could have given him his confidence back.
