Randy Lerner Speaks And Backs Manager

Randy Lerner Speaks And Backs Manager

Randy Lerner has spoken and backed Paul Lambert.



The chairman said:

'In the time that I`ve come to know Paul what is clear above all else is his strength of character and belief in his approach to football. Fortunes can shift quickly in this game and a sense that one has it right can become grave doubt in a matter of a few games.

The Villa board knew that with Paul we would begin to address the club`s multi-year lack of competitive stability by reshaping the squad with seven new signings in the summer.

It has been rewarding at times this season although certainly frustrating as well, particularly recently. During January Paul and the board have discussed a variety of players although nothing has yet materialised, which I know also can be frustrating as fresh players always give at least a sense of progress and optimism.

Finally, and on a very personal note, I would reiterate that Paul has achieved success at many levels of professional football and I believe, given support, he will continue to do so for us.'

Can anyone remind me when any of the last three seasons have been rewarding please?

Is that for real? If it is there must be crack involved.

I suppose it was rewarding when we beat Sunderland, Man City,Liverpool & Norwich . By the sound of it not a total no no for a signing or two ,as has been reported . I can at least watch the Sky deadline countdown with a little bit of hope now (I wasn't going to bother)

Your not passing that off as a statement you get more on a postcard. We dont expect 5 new signings @ 20 mill each we just need to loan a couple of reasonable quality midfielders and get Laursen in to coach the defence on corners, its not rocket science nor do we need to spend loads.

Agree with CLIVETHEVILLAN on this. He's staying put so we need to back him even if we lose tomorrow. It is nice to hear that they are trying to sign players, but I only hope they are not yet more young prospects. We keep saying it, but it doesn't get less true - WE NEED EXPERIENCE AND WE NEED IT NOW!

Well on skysports Lambert is saying there are no funds available and we wont be signing anyone, so one of them is lying. As for that Lerner speech, it sounds like something he asked his P.A to knock up for him. Not really feeling it to be honest, sounds just like a typical response to some *****ed off fans.

I guess we will just have to pick ourselves up in February and go again. Because we wont lie down. Yadda yadda yadda
