    Let’s sing we want Lambert out and I’m sure Lerner will sack him lol very funny isn’t it and unrealistic…Dream over wake up….

    Rumour going around Tom Fox is set to have a press conference confirming Lambert’s staying as Villa manager no matter what.

      any progress on incomings ???? any new whispers

      1. Andrew January 14, 2015 at 5:34 pm .

        Nope, just that Lambert’s inquired about a host of other players.

          cheers fingers crossed

        Soccer Sauce on twitter claims we’ve contacted Stoke over a cut-price deal for Huth. Guessing as a replacement for Vlaar.

        Could give a few of the rumours Incog had over the last week but I’m sure by now people never believe him. Which too be fair he tweeted 2 days before any of the usual papers (Metro, Daily Mail, Telegraph) etc wrote about it.

        1. Andrew January 14, 2015 at 6:02 pm .

          wrote about Gil that we made a bid. On the 8th*

          See Huth has got himself into some ‘social network’ bother – could get an FA sanction; also reading that piece, his injury form is even worse than Vlaar’s.

          Why would we want another crock?

        3. nath January 14, 2015 at 6:11 pm .

          huth isn’t too bad, but okore baker clark and sendros, i think some more forward thinking mids attackers types. i hope they send back cleverley and get that jamanji from utd sorry about the spelling

          1. Andrew January 14, 2015 at 6:13 pm .

            Seems it could only be for around a million. And with our known defensive injuries, I’m sure we’d definitely need some replacement.

          2. nath January 14, 2015 at 6:17 pm .

            i could see this, cos losing vlaar your losing a leader. the 4 left arent leaders maybe clark but huth is a leader more vocal

          3. Ardent Villain January 14, 2015 at 6:19 pm .

            Yes, he was decent-enough at Chelsea [sometimes] — but according to that BBC link he’s only managed 3 games this season [so like for like?]

          4. Andrew January 14, 2015 at 6:30 pm .

            He’s been on the bench for the most part, which is why he’d be cheap. He did have a calf injury. Think Stoke prefer Muniesa to him, and now that they have Wollschield he won’t play at all. I have no idea if it’s true but he is decent.

  4. Jay Dee January 14, 2015 at 6:07 pm .

    Huth is currently being charged by FA for aggravated misconduct

      For playing a simple game on Twitter. Asking people to guess the gender of people’s pictures.

      1. Jay Dee January 14, 2015 at 6:14 pm .

        Yeh summat to do with Twitter

  5. nath January 14, 2015 at 6:24 pm .

    januzaj looks like hes going to spain with david moyes real socidad

    1. Andrew January 14, 2015 at 7:05 pm .

      Canales, Vela and Januzaj along with their Captain Prieto, who I’d have always wanted to see leave Sociedad for Villa, but fantastic he’s stuck with them this whole teamm. While not the marquee team, those 4 together look a frightening, quick and technical talented attack quartet.

    I don’t Grealish will ever get a look in now under lambert.
    we had the best youth set up in europe. Lambert has not used it he has ruined it.
    Buying cheap as opposed to giving our own a proper chance. A crime.

    1. Ardent Villain January 14, 2015 at 8:13 pm .

      Steve – “we had the best youth set up in europe” – how do you reckon that?

      We’ve been hearing about the youth set up for years, but how many products are actually playing, or have played, at any top-level teams in Europe?

      [Cahill the only one??]

      1. steve January 14, 2015 at 8:34 pm .

        Didn”t we win the next-gen a couple of years ago. Yet not one player has been given a run in the team. Since houllier left not one young player has been given a run in the team. You can not judge a player on one or 2 games.
        e.g. Westwood comes and is played consistently – Gardner / johnson / burke.don”t get a chance. Tonev, helenius, bowery signed before looking at grealish and robinson.
        i”m just fed up of signing cheap players ahead of giving one or two of our own a fair crack of the whip.

        1. nath January 14, 2015 at 8:50 pm .

          you can turn that argument around saying, if them youth players can’t get into the team because of them rejects. then they aren’t good enough. gardner isn’t getting good reports at brighton, their fans said they cant see the point of him, now hes at forest. johnson is in div 1. grealish shows good touches and did well on loan in div 1, but hes not premiership class as we speak. if villa were doing better and fans were not getting angry at results, manager, performances,,,,, iam sure he would be used more. but no manager would want to over play a young player, in such a bad team lacking confidence.

          1. steve January 14, 2015 at 8:58 pm .

            I agree. The point I am trying to make is how do you get prem experience. We seem to overlook giving our own free youth a chance in favour of buying cheap foreigners or players from the lower divisions. We can’t score so why not give Robinson a run of games. He won’t do worse than grabby.
            On another note lambert has now got a creative player but for me our forwards are too static and far apart.

          2. nath January 14, 2015 at 9:05 pm .

            in the current team and situation its had to blood youth. iam sure robinson and grealish will come good and may play for villa for many years. but its not the time to risk ruining a young career before its really begun. robinson i feel was brought back because the club wanted to loan bent out. he was doing very well at preston and was earning good praise from their manager and fans

      2. bencey83 January 14, 2015 at 10:01 pm .

        Yes, Cahill was the only one and we sold him to Bolton for peanuts! Absolute disgrace!

  7. Jay Dee January 14, 2015 at 9:08 pm .

    We could be bottom 3 very soon depressing stuff

  8. bencey83 January 14, 2015 at 9:54 pm .

    If we were going to sing Defoe, we should have done it ten years ago! But he’s definitely the type of player I think we need alongside Benteke. Can’t see us getting him though. Thought he didn’t want to leave London previously because he enjoyed the party lifestyle too much – are there even any clubs in Sunderland?! Anyway, I’m excited to see what Gil can offer. He looks skillful with a few tricks up his sleeve and likes to go at people – hope he gets a fair crack of the whip! Could be just what we need, but could also take him a while to settle in and adjust to the Premier League. I’m encouraged by this signing, as it shows that Lambert can see where we need improving. If he can just see where his tactics and substitutions need improving we might make some progress!

    1. OriginalLondonLion January 14, 2015 at 11:49 pm .

      There are very few Defoe like characters in football which is why the old original still gets talked up. What sets him apart is he thinks 2 moves ahead. As he sees a pass coming in to his strike partner he runs away from his marker to get 8 to 10 yards away and then he runs up to but not beyond the off-side line as his partner plays the ball. If the ball is knocked on he is on to it at least two yards ahead of the defender.

      Lambert has not seen anything that needs doing until long after the fact is written in this blog and others, even his defensive pairing of Clark and Okore came about because they were the last two standing. to give you an example of something he still does not see is that Benteke and Agbonlahor want to play exactly the same role on the same blade of grass.

      1. bencey83 January 15, 2015 at 6:59 pm .

        Yes, this point is very true. He seems to be the last person to realise what our problem is and the only one who can do anything about it!!!

        1. OohAhPaulMcGrath January 15, 2015 at 7:09 pm .

          Problem for lerner is if we go down he will lose a dam sight more than £3m. Not only will he lose around £80m sky money he would be lucky to sell the club at what he paid for it. Potentially he could lose hundreds of millions
