The Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert will be holding talks with the owner Randy Lerner over the possibility of funds being available to him in the final few days of the transfer window. Aston Villa suffered the second consecutive defeat of the season in the home match against Everton. It has been a bad start for the new manager Paul Lambert, but it is widely acknowledged that the team is nowhere good enough to what they had under Martin O’Neill a few seasons ago. Aston Villa have cut their spending to drastic levels in the last few seasons and it has had an effect on the club as a whole.
As result, in order to provide another season of relegation trouble, Paul Lambert will be holding talks with the owner for the possibility of funds being available for him to spend on new players in the final few days of the transfer window. Aston Villa lost 1-0 against West Ham in the opening match of the season, while they were defeated 3-1 at home by Everton during the weekend. Aston Villa have had just one victory in the last nine months at Villa Park, which is set to continue if they do not bring in new players before the end of the transfer window.
“There’s not a magic wand. We have got to win games, that’s the main thing. If we don’t do that then it becomes a problem so I’ll see the chairman and Paul as I always do and speak with them and see what happens. I’ve got ideas in my head, but I have to speak to them and see. It’s not a quick fix, I know that myself, but it’s something where you don’t want to be left behind, you want to try and win as many games as you can,” said Paul Lambert.
