Lambert Expresses Wish To Stay - Weimann Agrees

Lambert Expresses Wish To Stay - Weimann Agrees

Paul Lambert has expressed his wish to stay at Aston Villa telling Sky Sports it is all up to the Chairman now.

He goes on: 'Albeit the last couple of years have been tough. I think the chairman has said himself I have had to work within the parameters he has set between me and him. You either take the challenge on or bottle it."

Now it is fair enough to say he`s not had the previous managers fortunes, but the parameters haven`t been that bad, his choice of players quite often has. Sheffield United, Bradford and Millwall would be my retort, all beat us, all had less of a parameter than this manager.

On Lerner he says: 'The season finishes on Sunday and I am pretty sure he will say it after that. You saw the statement as well as myself. I respect the chairman's statement and what he is going to say. It will bring clarity, and it will not be a problem whatever way he wants to play it himself.
I will respect his decision, no problem with that whatsoever. Randy is a really top guy and I've said before it is his club.'

So it does look like he really doesn`t know as yet.

Meanwhile Andi Weimann believes we were doing fine until the last six games and that Lambert should stay.

He told The Express & Star "There`s no reason for him not to be here. It`s been difficult, the last couple of months, but only for the last six games when we started losing," adding, "Before that we were sitting in 10th so we were doing OK. He gave me the chance last year and I`ve played pretty much every game this year so I like it."

Quite frightening if this lot think that this season has been acceptable in any way, shape or form. Hey ho, we`ll see. If it is more of the same then I can see the attendances reflecting the quality of football and our ambitions.

To say that Bradford, Sheff Utd and Millwall would be your retort is a pointless statement as I'm sure Lambert's retort to that would be the fact that we beat Chelsea, Man City and Arsenal this season and beat Man City last season in the cup. It is undeniable the financial shift which has been put in place, and the job given to Lambert has been achieved, keep us in the Premier League. The football this season has been garbage but Lambert has not had a fair chance in my opinion

its very complex the premier league, top 4 is crazy money and anything between 5th and 17th is kinda the same. spurs spent 100 mil (ok they sold bale), and what do they have to show for it. a lot of owners have to think out box. i personally really like the idea of young and hungry, but within young and hungry i would prefer us to go for players like ox, walcott, wickham, zaha, delph, young, milner, ince etc

No, no and no -just no okay. Just go. And shut it Weimann, turning up for one game although welcome does not justify you having an opinion that I'm going to listen to.

Touché crimsondonkey. Agree with Jordan entirely. We weren't the only team beaten by Sheffield anyway. They made the final FFS. Bradford last season. Who else will want to come here and work on this budget with a squad full ( albeit sparse) of Lambert players and not get us relegated??

I don't mind as long as there is investment in the team. Ideally I would like a better manager but I won't be up in arms if Lambert stays.
