Football Manager In Thanks To Fans Shocker!!!!!

Plenty of post QPR win stuff:

Paul Lambert has hailed the team's 'exceptional reserves of courage' following our fightback against QPR today. Speaking to the Official Site following the 3-2 victory over our relegation threatened rivals, the gaffer said he thought we passed the ball well in the first half, but the goal rocked us, and we weren't really on the front foot.

However, the nice bit is the manager recognising the role the fans played.

I know I`m a sucker for this, hate when the fans - who pay good money to watch some very average stuff - get criticised but do so like an appreciation of what the 12th man brings to the table.

Just proves my point, give fans the right performance and effort and the claret and blue army will respond in kind... and then some.

Paul Lambert told that Villa park was 'rocking` and the noise was from all around the ground.

'The noise was deafening. The place was rocking. It just shows you the potential that is here. "

That is exactly the point. Some say we moan a lot. They don`t always stop to ask themselves why!? This is a big club, or was, and has underachieved massively since our last trophy in 1996. The fans have remained loyal in my humble and give us an excuse to make a noise, we make it. Not that we need an excuse on the road, we are superb on our travels!

Lambert continued: 'I have had nothing but praise for the crowd since I have been at the football club. They have been right behind us when we've been beaten pretty heavily. They have still come in their numbers to watch us."

Adding, 'It's big thanks from me to the crowd, that's for sure."

I have been to Villa Park on a few occasions and always thought your fans were loud and proud. A long run of poor results/displays can lower the volume but I agree that fans will respond if they see that their team is at least giving their all. Nice to see a manager saying such positive thoughts.

Saturday was a great example of supporters SUPPORTING their team, rather than just turning up and watching. This season our SUPPORT has been excellent. The crowd have not got on the players backs, but stuck with them. When QPR came back to 2-2 was a perfect example. 20 seconds of being quiet and disappointed, then the cry of 'Villa' rang out all around the ground. It must have given the players a massive lift. I believe the main reason our crowd has been so good this season (hasn't always been the case) is that the majority can see what Lambert is trying to do, and whatever the shortfall of the side, 100% effort and commitment has been guaranteed. Those given the chance who wouldn't give that commitment (eg. Ireland) are not playing. Great potential here IF we can just stay up UTV

Usually when I go to VP I am a committed Holte Ender. I took advantage of the family offer on Saturday to take my two nephews. The North Stand was rocking as well! It was a great atmosphere and the boys thoroughly enjoyed it.

Serves as a reminder of we can provide when we have something to shout about. Still, it's nice of PL to recognise and salute the fact.

Saturday's game is a perfect example of why whe us fans talk about our club we say "We/Us" and not "They/Them". We're all in it together and we all do our part. Loved it Saturday. Most fun, tension and drama I've had at Villa Park for years. Looking forward to the Sunderland game, they've got to play United, Chelsea, Newcastle and Everton before they come to VP. We could bury them!?!?!

To be fair, hasn't PL consistently thanked the fans for their support - particularly away from home?
