Lambert Again Rules Out Big Spending

Lambert Again Rules Out Big Spending

With the transfer window slowly coming to a close - has to be one of the quietest ever surely? - Paul Lambert has again said he won't be spending big if he can pull some deals off.

Speaking to the Birmingham Mail Lambert said when asked if he was preparing to spend like Houllier did:

'No chance, none whatsoever. I think Darren came in and the lad Makoun didn't he? No, absolutely not a chance. We're trying to do something with the structure of the club, but we won't be able to do that.'

Lambert again added that he does have deals in the offing but if they don't come off, he won't panic buy anybody and he's happy to go with the squad we have as he trusts them to beat our relegation worry:

'I get on really well with Randy, he really has been great with me. If I've got to go with the group I've got then I'll go with it. I don't have a problem, I've got nothing but praise for these lads. They give me everything they've got. Yes, I'd like two more results to get us out that bottom end, I'd like to get to a cup final and those sort of things like every Villa fan would.'

Still uncomfortably quiet really isn't it. We all know we need strengthening, we all know we need a bit more experience, so let's hope the deals do come off and they work, because we all need a bit of a lift and some belief back don't we.

The only other option then is to use the much maligned experienced players we have got. Yes i mean warnock. Hope he does it. It will be our only chance if we dont sign anyone.

Hopefully he just means not spending big... I mean Diame and moussa sissoko are reported for 3.5 and Palacios might be 5... Huddlestone on loan one of those moves should be realistic...

Oh well, we've been told a couple of times now. Over to you Lambert, you had enough cash in the summer to ensure our surival. Don't fail us !

Would 3m for the 'linked' sissoko be classed as big spending?? Hope not !

True, we just need to solid up a bit. Hopefully he can get a few 3-4 million players in who can do a job for us.

aaaaaahhhh. I can't take much more of this. Do they not realise at VP what we are going through right now? Please, just please, feed us something positive, however small.

I think the big spending refer to the round of drinks he bought at the Christmas Party!!!! Do not be surprised if it's a) another non Premiership load of junk or b) no-one.

" Yes, I'd like two more results to get us out that bottom end, I'd like to get to a cup final and those sort of things like every Villa fan would.' Subtle from lambo, just reminding us all that it could all change quite quickly.

If we dont hurry and get some transfers in we will be finished. Lerner needs to understand that this team is not good enough. plain and simple, if we go into the championship we will lose all the sky tv rights which will cost us upto 100m. do the maths better to spend 20million now than lose 100m next year.

One second I'm reading Southampton sack Adkins and thinking, that could open the door for us, what a stupid move on their behalf. Then I read this and nearly throw up, what a bloody joke. Never said this before but the time has come LERNER OUT
