Paul Lambert has questioned how people can say players from the lower leagues aren't good enough until they've been given a chance.
Speaking to Sky Sports as the window draws to a close, Lambert was honest in response to some of the flak circulating given the types of players he has signed so far.
'I know from experience if you don't have the hunger as a footballer, then there is no point in playing the game. With people from the lower leagues, you are giving people opportunities. How do you know someone is not good enough? You won't until you give them that chance and I like to do that. I have total confidence in them to go and do the business.'
There's fair points on all sides in this really, but this is how Lambert works so there shouldn't be any surprises that he's continuing to scour for what he believes are the cream from leagues below us who can come in now or in the future to do a job for us.
We just have to trust his judgment and trust that whatever kitty was agreed when he accepted the job, that he's spending it in the direction he wants to.
We'll find out if he was right as the season progresses.
"It's my decision, football decisions are mine and I will take the responsibility on everything. Hopefully the fans can trust us."
