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.
