No, he hasn’t been given notice as far as I know, but having read around the net, it would appear that reliable sources are saying that there were anti-Lambert chants at the game today, particularly at the end of the game.
It might not be news to anyone, but my view has always been that when you lose the support of those that follow the Villa around the country, you’ve basically had your lot.
I hinted that I wanted Lambert gone in my article the other day, but also said that I hadn’t seen the evidence that I was in the majority, on the Holte; hence my reticence to actually call for him to be sacked.
If it’s true that there was anti-Lambert singing at Palace, it would be logical that this will continue in a major way at the Southampton game, should we go a goal down.
Given that this is a game I’ve half promised to go to, I’m in a bit of a dilemma.
I’m not convinced that calling for the manager to go at a home game, when we’re at risk of going down is a good idea.
But then, if I do attend, I suspect I won’t be able to help myself if the singing does start.
Lambert’s “the fans need a reality check” comments have tipped me over the edge I’m afraid and I’m fuming.
The reality Mr Lambert is that we haven’t deserved the shocking football we’ve witnessed at home this season.
Football so bad that we’ve beaten our previous record for home defeats in a season with two games still to go.
And regardless of any maybe valid excuses you may have, today’s setup in not attempting to win the game means you will fully deserve the bullet.
Part of me hopes we’re cheering loud for his head next week 🙁
