About Turn In Poll - Should Lambert Resign/Go?

Vital Villa asked:

Should Lambert resign/be sacked
Poll Date: 23 Jan 2013
Suggested By: JP Fear

Yes, he is taking us down 64%

No, we'll be ok 27%

Still really unsure 9%

Last time we asked the same question was earlier in January, same poll options:

No, we'll be ok 60%

Yes, he's taking us down 24%

Really still unsure 16%

Big turn around. Alarm bells seem to be going off all over the place.

I'd have preferred a straight yes,no or unsure because I'd keep him even if we went down
AstonBilla
I think either way we are down now...If no players are being signed it is almost a dead cert that we will be doing the unthinkable, playing championship football. Gutted I really am, I have no hope in this squad at all, it would struggle in the Championship.

Why didn't have these straight forward options for the Randy poll?? They were leading and confusing. Very poor show gents......
Villan444
I'm lost with it. I want to support him but i can't support what's happening. At the same time i can't be doing with another manager in/out situation.Voted stay.

He's a good manager, we won't know where we are until the end of the season by which time most of the penny pinching crap will be gone and we'll be signing the likes of Scott Dann. Who else wants the job though? RDM would probably want financial backing

Lerner should go! He is bored with is play toy. This team is just not good enough. Plain and simple Lerner has stripped all the quality. Why did we let so many players leave?
ShaneBlack
randy one was straight forward I thought, but hey 444, as you know, yam not as bright as me!!!!!!!!! ;-p LOL. Dunno 444, thought it was clear enough to be fair, will repeat at another time and see where the problem might have been, as said, still looks ok to me!
The Fear
So do we A: bring in overpriced has beens looking for paychecks and getting stuck with them for three years or more clogging up the wage bill or B: bide our time to bring in the right players for the positions we need them in to evolve the squad for the good of the club long term…….. if we choose A, we’ll be in the same position next January like we were last. The team isn’t that far away and the signs are very good in places and very poor in others. Lowton and Bennet are good players but aren’t learning from experienced centreback because they have been out most of the season. They will come good. Three decent signings at CB and MF, hopefully fresh ones with talent as in Benteke and Westwood and we won’t be far away and the club won’t be losing £30m a year trying to play EPL Poker. It’s gonna be tight but it’s the same for five other clubs, the ones who panic will go down. We are not in the relegation zone yet, have faith Lambert inherited this squad and it will take two seasons at least to get a proper team together that works for the way the club wants to head. Ny players he has or will bring in will be for long term evolution not like QPR and Newcastle who are bidding for mercenaries to help fix them short term.

I don't think it matters who the coach is. The squad is poo because it's been systematically made that way over the last 6 years. MON bought in too many average overpriced players, then it looks like there was interference with the Milner / Ireland deal, as MON would never have accepted Ireland, despite his other awful signings. Then dodgy decisions with hiring managers and more lame/lazy poorly researched incomings with the few good players jumping ship knowing she was taking in water. Learner/Faulkner are to blame here. Yes he's put a lot of money in, but the final years of Ellis meant he had to, just to bring the club up to date. This is a huge club which needs a real football minded owner constantly watching over it while at the club, not treating it like a quaint mail order english hobby for rich kids. A founder of the football league needs treating better than this. Yes, PL has got some things badly wrong, but the rot is much deeper & I can't see us improving no matter who the coach is.
Windy Villain
Astonmilan, you left out the C, or what I like to call the Lambert option, bring in young, inexperienced and mediocre lower league players.
jonah
Spot on Windy.
Pride of Lions
Agree with most of what you are saying Windy, but the squad has been made pooer (!) by PL. Despite the defence of last season being far from great, there was no need to rip it apart and replace it with lower league/reserve players at one stroke. There were other parts of the team where the £20m could have been invested better without ripping the whole team to bits.
Beovilla
Go. He has embarrassed our club. We went out of the league cup not because the players weren't good enough but because the team were devoid of good tactics. That's his job and his responsibility. 4 strikers, no width, long balls...it's a joke.
PiperUK
Astonmilan agree with a lot of what you say but option c you did leave out that was to loan two or three midfielders with prem experiance yes we pay their wages to the end of the season but if it kept us up well worth a try. Enough possible names have been suggested on here so I wont repeat them. Windy I agree with you while gratefull for Randy Lerners investment not sure if he still has Villa at heart or if we have become just another business investment which like the Cleveland Browns will decline untill someone makes him the right offer.
