On Sunday the statement Randy put out I believe fully was supposed to dampen down speculation. In fact it has done quite the opposite. By responding to rumours he has in fact opened up a can of worms he can not put back.
Most of us now fully expect to go, the press do. We can not wait until the end of the season for that promised statement can we ?
However what happens if that statement simply says he will stay or the worse situation of all that the club is for sale. that is the worst situation because it could mean weeks of delay, delay in getting rid of players and manager and getting in new ones. Of course the key person is the manager.
I can not believe any Villa fan believes Lambert ‘deserves’ another shot at it. IMHO he has not proved anything that shows he is capable of dealing with a big club, big ego’s and big expectations. All he has done whilst here is to downplay all that through his actions and words.
But then who replaces him ?
This is where we go into fantasy football of some. Some fans seem to want a golden moulding of Pep and Fergie to deliver wonderful football with the likes of Bowery ….
Without knowing what will happen, who will be owner and manager and funds available then all speculation is just that. All Randy has done is to inflame this speculation, make it worse, get some fans too over excited and all due to Randy ‘wait until the end of the season’.
That can not come quick enough.
