Cowans Backs Lambert

Cowans Backs Lambert

Gordon Cowans has said that Paul Lambert is the man to get it right at the Villa, and he's been delighted with the progression of our youngsters.

Speaking to Talksport Cowans said the future was bright for Villa, we just need to continue to be patient:

'Right from day one when the manager came to the club he's got on top of the players. He's got them doing things properly, working very hard and we're definitely going in the right direction. We're playing some great football as well and you can't ask for anymore. It's going to be tough and obviously the situation we're in at the minute is not great, but everyone is being very positive, the supporters are right behind the manager. This man needs time and I'm sure he's going to get it right. Some of the youngsters are ready, definitely, but you need some experience around them as well.'

Adding to the experience line, clearly the management staff see the same as fans do, as Sid adds:

'The January window is coming up and hopefully the manager will get some backing in that and be allowed to bring in a couple of players, or maybe more in. If he can do that I think we're going to be fine.'

Fair words from Sid, and I doubt anybody can disagree really, especially with the comment about a touch more experience in the camp to help the youngsters adjust and bed in more.

Agree with what Sid says & likw the bit about from day 1 got on top of the players and has got them doing things properly...The last few games has given me some much needed optimism although wil no mean much if we donot beat Reading at home on Tuesday, there can be no excuses it sa ame we just have win...We will be in & round it all come January and them hopefully he will get the 2 or 3 in as being suggested with that bit of experience and know how and as important that bit of quality...that should hopefully see us through where the rebuild can then really kick on some more the following season...Long way to go, patience required and that win on Tuesday Up the Vila...!

"Experience" has to be the operative word in the January window.

Hutton was the experience we needed - how are our youngsters going to cope with squad rotation without him? They will be lost without knowing whether its better to have an Ipad for Samsung 10.1 for battery life and screen resolution in poorly lit bench conditions...a calming influence like Hutton would help them get to the later levels on Angry Birds without getting frustrated then coming on the pitch with the wrong mindset! We're doomed without him.

Interesting comments from Sid but if the need for experience is so obvious why has our wonderful manager alienated, dropped or sold every experienced player on the books with the exception of Gabby and Stan (who unfortunately cant help)?

AV: because they were 5hite! Vlaar proves class is as good as experience. dunne is ill-er than Kieron Dyer on a bad day. The rest were here for a payday. Lambert is the bravest and most intelligent manager we've had for a long time, and, mark my words, when / if he brings in experience in the January transfer window, they will be CLASS.

I want to think like you Koolbill. I really do. I'd be a much happier person. I must change my aftershave though for starters. I am currently wearing 86-7 by McNeill.
