Lambert - Spirits Will Remain High

Lambert - Spirits Will Remain High

Paul Lambert has said he won't let the players get too low after our last two results, just as he didn't let them get too carried away with our two recent victories.

Quotes from the Official Site.

'I have belief they will do it, they will give us everything again. People get carried away after the Norwich and Liverpool wins but I didn't and neither did the team. I never let them get too high or too low. The nature of football is that you can get hurt at any moment. If you win, let it go. It's the same with a defeat. They will be fine. You have to bounce back, there's no other way.'

Lambert rightly again today after that performance singled out the fans.

'The fans were brilliant. They are fantastic in the way they have supported us. It's pleasing to hear them back us, but we know we have to get results. We are in a semi final in a few weeks, and if you look at the league you're not a million miles away from mid table. That's what you have to strive for.'

And as for the performance, Lambert wasn't happy with the first goal as he believes we should've had a freekick for a foul on Fabian Delph.

'We rode our luck massively in the first half. We started the second half well, I thought we were in the ascendancy, but the first goal was a foul on Fabian. The second goal we had a good chance to make it 1-1 and then they go up the other end and score again. That's what can happen.'

We have very winnable games in January that we really need to take advantage of, but we've got to get into our groves again and get back to the performances we were putting in prior to Chelsea. Lambert talks about keeping spirits level, but it's as clear as day Chelsea knocked the lads and today was not the response anybody was looking for.

I suspect that will be borne out by the comments that follow this.

He is 2-3 games away from the P45. If that occurs, ie we dont get the results we need between now and mid to late Jan, then this time Lerner should act sooner rather than later (as he did last season when we were, lets NOT forget, INCREDIBLY close to going down in the end). We need 6-7 pts from the next four league games, and Wigan and Soton at home are must win really, more to deprive them of the points than anything else. If hes any way short of that by the Baggies game then its crunch time.

Sorry mate but the jury is out on your tactical nous and your man management skills. I was hoping it didnt come to this but shipping 13 goals in 3 games puts a major question mark over your reign.

I am with those supporters who stayed until the end and showed their belief in Paul Lambert Of course these are worrying times by nature of the size of defeats to Chelsea and Spurs but a win against Wigan would see us into the New Year six poins clear of the relegation places. I sill believe that here is lot of talent in that squad.We desperately need some luck on the injury front. To have Dunne missing all season and more important having Vlaar missingthe last umpteen games is massive blow. Compounded today by the loss of Baker who was defending so well at 0-0...Also no Gabby, Andi, DB9 or Zoggy takes away so much potential threat goinforward. Hard to thinkof positives but I think Delph is finally starting to show some real ability. Lowton an Westwood continue to impress and Bennett showed a lot of ability on the ball (need to mprove defending)... I really believe we are only two or three experienced players away om being a very decent team..Buying them and getting some of the injured players back quickly is the key...Stay up and we will be a top ten team next season IMO

So it's come to this!!! We are now having to look to the ***** bottom table teams to keep us safe yet again. How much has Lerner just sold the Browns for?, what has he done with the Villa? how unwilling is he to invest with the Villa? well the evidence is there! ***** OFF LERNER!

Sorry PL but I'm sure confidence is shattered after those 2 results, if they feel for the club like we do (the fans) then they'd be absolutely shattered at the past 2 performances. PL will get it right but I agree with all the Randy comments and that he should open his wallet. Where the hell is he anyway?? For an owner he certainly does nothing to assure the fans.

"If you win, let it go"????? Surely they should remember it and build on it. We want a winning mentality. Remember the losses aswell and how painful it is/ should be!!! Randy and PF have been ghosts since appointing Lambert and its not fair on him to become the scapegoat for the cheapest squad in the prem if you take away the benched/injured/overpriced bent.

Lambert is 2-3 games from the sack??????? Get some perspective. Dear me. Such a massive bunch of bandwagon jumpers. We could win the next three league games and what then? Before the Chelsea game it was all coming together and now it's sack the man Let's wait to Feb eh.

The Norwich players say Lambert never took training sessions unlike Hughton, who works with them every day. PL apparently fancies himself as a Mr Motivator or fantastic man-manager in the O’Neill style who in turn fancied himself as the next Clough. To me Lambert has already peaked. That type of manager has no place in the modern highly tactical and technical game where the best players demand far more attention than just pre-match psycho babble and full time hugs. Lambert is on a par with Paul Jewell (Wigan) or Phil Brown (Hull). He reached the Prem but there is no potential there for advancement. He might be young but many oldies at the top are far more forward thinking. Give me a proper young coach like Martinez or Rodgers any day. Or even Steve Clarke or Hughton. Someone with the vision and a hands-on footballing philosophy to take a big club forward. Not someone who fills a side full of lower league youngsters, benches the club’s only quality striker just to ram home how important and powerful he is in the dressing room on a Saturday afternoon. The man is out of his depth. If he had one ounce of footballing nous he would be on the training ground at every chance with those players working on team shape, tactics and patterns of play. Not swanning around until match-day and then setting them up in a wing-back formation that was old-fashioned and easily-sussed 15 years ago.
