Hutton Gets On Fine With The Manager

Hutton Gets On Fine With The Manager

Alan Hutton has said he gets on fine with Paul Lambert and reckons his demotion from the first team is to do with finances.

Speaking to the Birmingham Mail Hutton explained that his omission was nothing to do with his ability, it was to do with the other side of it.

'At the time I was told it was nothing to do with my ability, it was all about the other aspect of it. If that's the case then I don't see why I won't be considered for the team. I'm still on the book, so there's no reason to leave me out altogether.'

No doubt Lambert has taken the decision to hopefully get Hutton and Warnock off the wage bill, but given that not playing them only affects match day bonuses that it inself isn't a reason to have excluded them the way they have been.

If he's looking for a response, Hutton certainly seems to be demonstrating it in this interview.

'Myself and the new manager get on fine, there's no problem between us whatsoever. I've actually had really good conversations with him since he's taken over. Hopefully, now the window is closed, I'll push my way back in. It's frustrating, of course it is. It's hard to take, but the only thing I can do is keep working hard and show him if needed I'm ready.'

Well attitude seems spot on, and his performance against Burton was probably his best in our shirt, so who knows what the future might bring?

Yup. He's on the books, so we may as well make the most of him. No one played well under that other fella, and if nothing else, we need to put him in the shop window again. Of course, he still has to prove his worth in training.

Still can't see why he and Warnock were dropped to train with the kids. There might be a good reason, if not it is just the new manager showing he is boss syndrome which is a bit *****ty really (reading the I Am The Secret PL Player book at the moment, he says it always happens, one player humiliated to show the rest of the team who is in charge)...!

Translated - "I have no problem not playing as I will still get paid the stupid wages I managed to negotiate under my old mate from Rangers. My Saturdays and Wednesdays (or whatever day Sky move a game to) are now free for me to get more sportscars and crappy tattoos" *chortle*

....No one else was stupid enough to look at me and, now the window is closed, I'm just going the sit on this contract and milk this cow until it runs dry. I always wanted to retire by the age of 30 :-)

I thought he was terrible against Burton.

We'll still look to ship him out on loan to anyone who'll contribute anything to his wages. He's probably behind 3 or 4 others at right back now.

he will return to train with the first team once the young uns have had enough of him, and so on etc etc......I have to say that I have seen "personnel mgt" situations like this whilst working in corporateworld, but I wasnt s*** at my job.

I read it that way too Heavy D. He's obviously either stupid, gullible or in denial.

Well if it's about finances Alan, how about taking a pay cut? It would show that you are willing to make a sacrifice for the team. Will be interesting to see if Dunne gets the same treatment when fit.

In fairness to Hutton if he wants to milk his contract for all it's worth then that is his right. Winston Bogarde was slated for earning 40k a week at Chelsea whilst training with the youth team twice a week (He'd fly in from Amsterdam). Chelsea were to blame for that situation not Bogarde (They apparently decided to sign him based purely on a recommendation from his mate Mario Melchiot). Lerner and Faulkner are to blame for allowing the previous manager to bring Hutton to Villa. It's not Hutton's fault he's an average footballer. It IS his employers fault for signing him.
