Albrighton On Villa & Lambert

Albrighton On Villa & Lambert

Appearing at a Mars Just Play Session alongside other players in the Premiership history books, Marc Albrighton took time out to talk about Paul Lambert and the Villa in general.

The interview was with Sky Sports and obviously they talked about Albie's 20,000 Premiership strike against Arsenal in December 2011:

'It's a fantastic feeling, no one can take that away from me, that is history and I'm really proud of that.'

But it is history, and everyone is looking forward, so after pre season with an injury, Albrighton was delighted to return to action in our unexpected win over Manchester City in the Cup:

'It was a great game to come back into, everybody had written us off but it's great for me on a personal level and great for the club. Hopefully we can build on that. We go to every ground hoping we can win. In the dressing room before we said we were capable of beating this side, we knew we had enough in the squad to cause an upset and hopefully we can take that performance into every game we play.'

On Lambert, Albie says he's been very clear on what he wants and expects from the players, and he thinks our improved performances of late are starting to show that the squad is getting closer to exactly what the manager wants:

'He knows what he wants and he has told us what he wants. Hard work, people who are prepared to put a shift in and on top of that people who have the ability to be composed and perform well on the pitch. That's what we need to do to get into the team and hopefully we can have a few good days this season. If the gaffer can improve me as a player then that will be brilliant.'

Albrighton also added that obviously the Lambert plan wouldn't happen overnight, it was a long term plan to change the club from the top down, so we really should be looking to judge the new manager next season:

'The club have brought Paul Lambert in, not as a one year thing, he is not going to turn everything round in a year, he is going to have at least a couple of years to get his transitional period out of the way and then we can push on and hopefully we will be back to where we were. I think Paul will do brilliantly for us. Everything is settled and hopefully we can start pushing on up the league. We know we haven't performed over the last couple of seasons, but we want to put that behind us now. We are going to have down days this season, but hopefully we can have more good days. We've just got to get the ship steady again and get back on track after some ups and downs.'

Its quite simple really, put the effort in and you'll get results. Even a footballer can understand that, well I hope BENT, NZOGBIA, IRELAND and DUNNE do anyway ...... well to be fair to Nzogbia he has looked something like his menacing self in his last couple of introductions and can be a real asset to us. Albrighton could flourish under Lambert, sounds like his head is screwed on (unlike Bannan's). Put the work in lads and we'll support you and AVFC will be fine. UTV

Albie has been very good since he came back I thought he had lost his way last year and was damaged beyond repair but it seems thru hard work and Lamberts faith he is getting back to becoming a good player...

'transitional period'.... Does anyone know when the transitional period started because I'm sure people were talking about it after o'neil and I don't think we ever left it

Tylervilla2012 i can remember us being in a "transitional period" even when O'Neill was here to a point & way before that going right back to maybe the Ron Atkinson side of the 90's. At least thats the last time i remember us having a side of any real quality & even then we were short. Under O'Neil i don't think the job was quite finished when the plug was pulled from above... shame as we were on the brink of achieving something possibly. But the plug was indeed well & truly pulled to a level i have never witnessed before. Talk about decimation! No wonder MON left. We are now a completely different football club completely & if we do survive this season, which in my eyes is extremely doubtful, then that in itself will be an achievement.

Last year we played Spurs away & I was ashamed to be a Villa fan . It was an abject ,embarrassing capitulation. The worst display I'd seen in over 50 years of watching the Villa. This year by all accounts we could have won & we had a go & that to me regardless of staying up or not is a vast improvement. My gut feeling is that we will survive this year (about where we are now) & next year will finish mid table or better . I'm happy with what I've seen & I'm happy with the vibes coming from Villa Park UTV
