Thanks to MorganVilla for submitting the following;
Having now fully absorbed the game on Saturday and thinking about performances this season and beyond, I have read varying views about Villa. Most agree this is not good enough and then at this point the views vary on who to blame, the need for continuity and then the obvious changing of the manager.
We need to forget about arguments against the chairman because without some kind of plan in place then we are just going to drift into the championship, I personally believe throwing money at it will only delay the inevitable of relegation.
We need to create a philosophy at the club and we need someone on that board to come up with, promote and help the club sustain a model that represents the club and the fans. I don’t think anyone at the club is capable of doing this.
“The project” as it currently stands is a great idea and in terms of how it was put forward sounded like some kind of plan. The only problem is the man in charge of the project imo has not got a clue what he is doing when it comes to tactics.
Paul Lambert is not the man to take us forward but I understand what a lot of fans are feeling in regards to chopping and changing the manager, this brings with it changes in playing staff, coaching staff and brings about changes and transitional periods that will happen more often than is needed.
We need to be in a place where the manager fits the philosophy and not the club fits the manager. Paul Lambert will do well at another club that is under performing in league one and turn them around. I have seen enough for me to be convinced he was the wrong man for the job. Saying all that I believe his appointment was a move in the right direction of changing how the club operates.
Money is not always the solution but we need the whole club pulling in the same direction and with the same philosophy I think this would benefit our youth set up and prove to make AVFC a more sustainable and successful club than it has been for sometime.
The only problem with this is Randy willing to take someone on who is not a “yes man”?
