Lambert - The Onus Is On Us

Lambert - The Onus Is On Us

Paul Lambert has said the onus is on us this weekend to go out and put in a positive performance on home soil to get the result we want.

Unfortunately it's that fact that has a lot of fans worried!

Speaking to the Official Site ahead of the game, Lambert talked about pressure and expectation:

'I'd rather have the pressure than not. You've got to have pressure to perform and that is the making of football. The onus is on the home team to make the running. If you win that, you might go up a couple of places but that is how tight the league us. You have to be ready for everything that is coming your way.'

Would that include the experience these lads need to guide them on the pitch?

Lambert also addresses the fall out following the Bradford game, and he assures fans that he and the team are feeling the same:

'We've feeling probably the exact same way the Aston Villa fans are feeling. They are hurt by the embarrassment of getting beat the way they did, we have another leg to turn it around. We shouldn't have conceded the goals we did and that was the most disappointing thing. There was enough chances to win two games and you have got to take them.'

"We shouldn't have conceded the goals we did and that was the most disappointing thing". Agreed, but expect the same thing tomorrow against Southampton, because we are NOT learning the lesson!

He says he wont put the club finances in jeopardy which, on the face of it, is commendable. But with potential relegation looming surely two decent additions to the centre of the team - my views on who we could get have been stated enough, and would be available within the original £10million budget - are worth it to prevent the potential loss of £70-£100 million in revenue (increasing each year we fail to get promoted), the club as an asset being devalued expenentially, and being stuck with a massive wage bill for a squad of unmotivated players that can't be shifted on and will just sit tight and run their contracts down so we don't even get transfer fees when they leave? It's also alright mentioning the defending but has this even been addressed on the training pitch? Extra drills practising the basics like defending free kicks/corners? Based on Livingstone, Wycombe and Norwich probably not! How do you get better at something? That's right. with practice!!!!!!!!

Stop being so dam fickle. We still have a great chance of getting to the League Cup final, have a winnable tie in the FA Cup, some very winnable fixtures in the league and all you lot wanna do is whine like children. In a couple of months there's a good chance you'll all be saying the guy's the best thing that ever happened to the club. Can't believe 66% of self-pittiers think we'll lose tomorrow, that's just pathetic.

Schoolboy, the fact is its not a happy time and the positivity is draining fast. We all want the best for the club just like you but we are where we are due to poor performances and for as long as I can remember we are going to go right to the wire. The saints game is a massive one for us IF we are going to even try to climb out of this depression we are currently in.

Words I'm afraid mean very little at this stage. We've heard it all before, or something very much like it. Actions are needed Paul, not more meaningless ramblings that fool or inspire no one anymore. Home to a team actually below us in the league table, just as Wigan Athletic were. Hopefully we aren't about to witness another insipid performance from our claret and blues.

Schoolboy, you sound just like your account name ! We maybe fickle but you sir are a dreamer! Wigan was a winnable game... Oh dear.southampton away was a very winnable game and is up their with our worst results of this campaign? I suppose your bring up the liverpool result to back your theory.....we always seem to have just one shock win a season and that's it ,the rest has been yes at times more flowing than last term but come on,stringing two passes together is better than last seasons effort. Facts..fewer goals,fewer points ,worse defences in the prem and Bradford gave us a lesson in football.. A lesson by a lower league struggling team who had just failed to Win a game in five on the trott could get more fired up than us for a semi cup match! Fans aren't getting on at lambert..yet,but we all knew this season was going to be tough...but this is worse all round.the silence from the boardroom yet again is deafening,and the so called targets being talked about since last summer have yet to be seen and god do we need them! So yes call us fickle but after last season and how poor this one is going many of us fear the worse. You can stick your cup runs by the way,it's prem football we want mr errors!

I said all along PL was a poor choice and perhaps now somebody will believe me. WE SHOULD HAVE GIVEN ALEX A CHANCE. But, oh no, those loud-mouthed idiots had their way and now where are we?? The majority of fans do not have a clue, do you??
