Lambert - No Magic Wand

Lambert - No Magic Wand

Paul Lambert has expanded on his comments about meeting with Paul and Randy today.

Speaking to the E&S Lambert explained that there was no magic wand that he could wave, and he knows the battle he faces in turning round our fortunes, which is why he wouldn't get carried away when pre season results went for us.

'There's no magic wand. That why I never got caught up in the euphoria of it because I know what it's like. It's not a quick fix, I know that, but it's something where you don't want to be left behind. We have to start to win, that's first and foremost. The chairman and Paul and myself will have a conversation and we'll see what happens. I've got ideas in my head, if something comes available, then we can look at it.'

Just simply has to be movement doesn't there. The plan can't have been only Vlaar, Lowton and El Ahmadi?

Yes Mike we have to move some out and move some in but saying it and doing it are two different things

TBH if there are not the signings out there, then we cannot waste a bunch of Club money on dross that we lose value on and have to move on in a season (Hutton etc)
27/08/2012 16:40:00
Yeah, Kevin Doyle is going to pack Villa Park to the rafters and send the club back to the big time isn't he? No he isn't! If KD is the best Lambert/Lerner/Faulkner can come up with then they shouldn't be suprised if the club goes down. Absolute rubbish!

We need a CB....John Heitinga anyone?? Seems to be a back-up at best at Everton, and may fit well with Vlaar? Or Michael Dawson. Clint Dempsey for the midfield? Or what about Joe Cole? Not exactly a spring chicken but we are crying out for experience....
27/08/2012 18:14:00
Oh dear, it all seems a bit amateurish doesn't it?
27/08/2012 18:28:00
Hold on, if my timeline serves me correctly then this quote is pre-Everton it's the E+S alluding to what the meeting outcome was/will be? Expect quotes after signings boys.
