Should Paul Lambert Also Get A New Contract?

Should Paul Lambert Also Get A New Contract?

Our latest poll asks, should Paul Lambert also get a new contract.

It has been suggested by Plastic Villan who said:

"I recently read a blog somewhere that Villa have given new contracts to all the star performers from last season except one. They were suggesting that Lambert has also done a great job and should be rewarded. He now has two years left on his contract. Do you think we need to see more before tying him down for longer? Should we be ready to fully get behind this project over the long term? Was last season just not good enough?"

So there you go, should he? Yes, no, or not yet.

A great job? Their definition is different to mine. For me, not yet.

I'd say if this season is a clear progression then extend his contract. no point offering huge amounts of money, ultimately if he wants to move he will do as managers are classed as club assets and have relatively normal contracts of employment.

Although I'm excited about where Lambert is taking us I think we should wait until at least January and see where we are then. I would like to see him around long term. We need stability and I dread to think of another manager coming in, deciding he doesn't like half the players, wants to bring in his own, rinse, repeat. But it was pretty rocky last season. Now he has a squad much more to his liking he has to show us what he can really do.

I thought he was given a 4 year contract when he started, in which case he still has 3 years to go.

Definitely. He is transforming the entire ethos and approach of the club. He is going to make us mega millions and get us up the table in the process. In Lambert I trust.

Only the players that exceeded what was expected of them (with the exception to players with a year or less left) were the ones that received new deals. Westwood, Lowton, Benteke etc. Im not one of those that thinks last season was a total disaster but scraping survial is hardly exceeding expectations. Lamberts progress is judged predominantly on the teams results (as opposed to individual players) therefore no new contract. Ridiculous idea.

We need to see how he does in his 2nd season with his players Not somebody elses as over half the team was last season. To my re conning he has now purchased 13 players plus the fact that he has been responsible for bringing through some youth players, or would they have progressed regardless ? If despite all his endeavors we struggle next year with another relegation struggle then I and don't suppose most of us know what the answer is. However I agree letting him go and starting all over again fills me with dread. If he does have 3 years left then I would leave it be and review it again at the end of the season, however he may be happy to have a rolling contract like O'neil did. If however he requested a increase would be mad not to offer him one and risk losing him to someone like Newcastle or WBA. I don't see him getting a top job yet and to be honest I think managers are in an even better situation than players. If a big club came calling we don't have transfer fees for managers only compensation once they decided to go. We need to build slowly and move up the table to have the ability to keep our players and managers but with this will need to be an increase in the wage structure to follow our slow progression.
