Lambert - We Didn't Deserve To Lose

Lambert - We Didn't Deserve To Lose

Paul Lambert has said that he is disappointed following the Fulham result as we didn't deserve to lose, but overall he was pleased with the performance.

Defensively maybe, otherwise I'd imagine plenty of fans disagree at this moment in time.

Speaking to the Official Site after the loss Lambert said.

'It was hard to take because I don't think we deserved to lose. It's a tough place to come but I thought we gave as good as we got. To lose from a set piece was really disappointing. It was a close game, I didn't think there was much in it. I thought we did fine, I thought some of our play was really good.'

Admittedly I didn't see all of it, but in attacking terms we were back to the West Ham performance, very little movement or dare I say effort upfront for most of the game and then sitters missed.

We all know the team will have its ups and downs as we click and nobody knows if we'll get a Southampton or a Man City performance, but lately whilst we seem to have been finding some consistency in performance, it's hard to not say today was a total reverse of what we've been building on and developing.

I still say the time to worry though is if we haven't clicked and started picking up consistent results by mid November, even allowing for newbies to the English game and newbies to the league, they should've totally adjusted by then and know the game we are going to play.

In the meantime it's where we need the experienced players to give their all, and sadly I don't believe that was the case today.

In the remainder of the interview he talks about how Gabby Agbonlahor and Darren Bent did really well up front and how he thought Christian Benteke had found the net with his chance.

About time we saw Andreas Weimann and Benteke methinks.

Fulham Match Thread - not for the faint hearted this week.

Now this does worry me because although the timing of the winner was bad we never really looked like getting anything other than a 0-0 .

Consistent results by mid-November? Have you seen the November fixture list? Sunderland (A), Man U (H), Man City (A), Arsenal (H). I obviously hope I'm wrong, but I keep having this awful dream that our beloved Villa are bottom of the Premiership by the end of November..

Must admit, I think we did deserve to lose. Sorry to disagree with the manager, I'm sure he will be distraught!

Lambert was my pick for manager, I support him and his decisions but does anyone else think this narrow diamond system we play is total ****??

Yup YamYam. Lose the inconsistency in performance, turn these losses into draws and really dig in deep and take the game to the names we will now face. Do that and I'll call it consistent and proof we've clicked and gelled as a team that can see us through in the second half of the season - not into Europe, but safely surviving for further building in the summer. Don't forget we already stuffed Man City and most claim their second string is better than our first team...we just need to be at our best and find that consistency of performance and we'll get points.

If we haven't by the start of December then serious questions need to be asked for the January window, but we need to give the newbies time to bed in and 8 games isn't enough to judge.

Lion, I think it's fine once we have the right players. We remain unbalanced, I seriously would go for KEA, Delph/Herd defensive, and then Holman/Albie, Bannan at the moment. In too many games we either have too many defensive or too many attacking. Get the mix right like Newkie/Swansea are we are stronger in defence and more free flowing creatively.

Even if we didn't deserve to lose, the act still remains WE DID and it's not good enough......

New ideas.some new players...same old lack of quality in the last third..I`m all for the nice passing game but at times somme players seem to move the ball on, just for the sake of it, without looking at what`s on..problems in midfield..Ireland just did`nt spark, Holman worked his nads off (as per) but lacked quality..surprisingly Delph was our best man in the middle yesterday, for a fleeting moment I thought he might flourish into the likes of Ian Taylor (legend), fingers crossed he will get somewhere close..

No idea why he could say we didn't deserve to lose, football is score a goal and win, Mr Fear remember my words before we started well now I am really worried but chill not stop hoping we recover and consolidate ready for next season.
