Didn't see that coming


In a neat little town they all call Grimsby
Apprentice to a tradeI was bound
And many's an hour's sweet happiness
Have I spent in this neat little town.

A sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
Never Betrayed by the black and white band.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black and white band.

Always knew that open free-flowing approach would be his downfall.

They have given him every chance except money to improve the team especially in the goal scoring department.

Maybe predictable but you have to have some sympathy. He's hardly been given a Prem budget to work with while the owners have been trying to offload the club.

They had a goalscorer at the club in Darren Bent, who they had spent £20m (+) on signing, but for whatever reason Lambert wouldn't play him.

He is scoring plenty of goals on his loan spell right now. Guess we will never know why lambert didn't play bent but when a team is struggling for goals it seems mad he was not given a chance. I think his sacking was long over due to be honest , but he wasn't given much money to invest in the team.

With Bent, I think it's the modern idea that the forwards have to work as hard as the midfielders, running the channels and tracking back etc. Bent is an out and out goal scorer.

They've overdone the football from what I can see, they've looked predictable and toothless for some time. If I get the job, I'll recall Bent, play 4-4-2 and go direct towards Benteke.

Bent was signed by Macleish and has been on loan to different clubs for the past 2 seasons with a bit of time back at Villa in between. There must have been issues pre-Lambert that caused him to be left out. I'd be reluctant to blame Lambert over this. The biggest problem at Villa is the owners who want to sell the club and therefore don't want to spend any more than minimum cash. Lambert has been sacked because of the danger the club might go down and be worth less money. The owners don't want success they just want survival which is why they stuck with Lambert so long. He's only a pawn in the game.
