Lambert Passes Praise To Players

Lambert Passes Praise To Players

After today's 2-0 win over Swansea, Paul Lambert has hailed the players individually for their performances.

Speaking to the Official Site after the game, Lambert said.

'I thought Christian was unplayable, he was an absolute threat. The great thing is he's only 21, only a kid and still learning. He was excellent. The goal will give him confidence, the crowd will go with him. You heard the reaction when he came on. Even Ashley, when he came on, he's come from league one but you wouldn't think it! I'm delighted with the boys who have been here and those who have integrated here too.'

As for Lowton's goal, Lambert called it world class, and he also used the same superlative to describe Guzan's performance between the sticks.

As for the Hitman Holman, in true Lambert style, he said.

'Brett needed another lung the way he was performing. He was exceptional.'

Nothing else for me to say really, I doubt this will be Lambert's final words on the game as you could pick out the remainder of the players, Clark, Vlaar, etc - you could wax lyrical about any of them for one reason or another.

A night and day difference from the utter rubbish that we've become used to over the last couple of years. We look like we have confidence and it just shows the difference between Lambert and McLeish, imo.

Arrived back in Brum this morning after a week in Ibiza. If I'd have gone to a Villa game after a week in Ibiza last season I would have been suicidal tonight. As it is the win and the confidence inspiring performance from Paul Lambert's Claret & Blue Army capped a great end to a fantastic week. How many new Holte Heroes were born today? Vlaar even got granted God's song, Holman proved himself to be the singularly best thing AM ever did for The Villa (Nice parting gift), Lowton scored a screamer & Guzan won over any doubters that there may have still been. Happy, happy days. UTV. Buzzin...!!

Its going to take a season of these performances to make the players, supporters realise Villa have the potential to again fill the ground with true supporters who will back the club 100% with the right manager and the right "Villa ethos"
