Wow looking back at some of them old buys turns my stomach lol Heskey Harewood Beye thank god these are gone oh and Collins man he is poo, anyway the amount of players Rambo Lambo has got us for is amazing and when pulls this off and turns us into a proper team who fight and play a bit Randy Lerner pulled off a masterstroke in appointing him!
clivethevillan
O,Neill did most of the damage, I notice Sunderland have not learned from the Villa as he is stil payiing too much for players. I think Paul Lambert is taking a gamble on his purchases, certainly he will not break the bank and is system just might work. We will not be Champions, hopefully he can take us up the table to 10th or there abouts. I
irish villa
So much money, so much waste. SOME good buys along the way, but I do feel for Randy in the amount he's backed the managers and how badly they have bought. We've hardly built for the future at all until now, but now we have built for the future and I'm worried for the present! Arrgghh! lol
The Fear
LOL Fear how true, we really need to do what Lambert is doing, i didn't get it but when you realise its juts unsustainable to keep buying the saem run of the mill players year on year that do the rounds around the prem bouncing from one prem clubto another whilst picking up 50 plus k a week its got us nowhere, at least we are trying to do the right thing now we are now THE ''lambo's lambs''
clivethevillan
Merse and the boys destroying us on SS as usual, unfortunately making valid points about experience etc. Bottom 3 for us they say. I really hope this new look Villa click soon and ram it back down their and our throats!
Stephen Jay Hawkings
I fear they are right Stephen Jay... lets hope not.
The Fear
the Sky Sports mob have a vested interest in perpetuating the "experience" mantra - big fees big wages for English players, any foreigner however good will always take a while to acclimatise in EPL etc etc blan blah blah. we have bought three with UCL game time, is that not actually more valuable than EPL game time ?
