Steve Bruce for the Norwich job
Well he'll a upgrade on Mcleish that is for sure, not that'd be too hard.
Hes a typical Villa manager. Not sure he'll be a huge success but he will probably improve them but he has very hard job on his hands.. their squad is pants and the football they were playing last season was diabolical, just bland and nothing happening.
He has to find half a dozen players with probably not much money and get them playing again.. Probably has one of the hardest jobs in the prem next season.
Plus there are talks of new owners coming in, possibly Arabs. So I wouldn't be surprised to see Leeds back in the big time in the next 5 years.
It's a good appointment for Villa, Lambert is a very good manager, two consecutive promotions with Norwich proves this.
Holt follows Lambert to Villa, seems predictable.
I can see Norwich going back down without some reinforcements and a decent manager coming in.
Good appointment by Villa I think. Feel a bit sorry for the Norwich fans tho, hope they find a decent replacement and stay up.
No surprise there really !!
Unless they spend money this summer then I think they'll be fighting against relegation again this season. Other than Given and Bent, I dont really rate their squad very highly and I think Lambert has a big job this season. Villa are still considered a mid table club for some reason so if he were to take them down it could ruin his career, at least in the short term.
Good appointment, Swansea and Norwich will struggle this season.
Probably took Norwich as far as he can. Good for Villa and good for football if they can now stake a claim among the top teams in the country.
Can't really blame Lambert. 2 successive promotions is no mean feat. Getting relegated if he stayed with Norwich, even if a lack of investment was the leading cause, will be held against him.
Big challenge for Lambert, let see how he does.
Aston Villa have done well to appoint him, A very shrewd manager who also understands the value of wing play. Yup Norwich will suffer big tome without him and they will go down now. Not so sure about the swans because they are a very well ran club.
He's probably going to make a move for Holt since Villa released Heskey. A front 2 of Bent and Holt would be handy for them tactically. Could start both of them or rotate depending on the opponent.
Really intrested to see how this one turns out.
It scares me that Lambert is a modern British manager lauded on the radio by ex-players who've seen his managerial ability that is about to be undermined by an uninspiring spell at Villa. I hope we don't become the same laughing stock that Villa always are.
I think Holt might end up at Villa too then.
