We absolutely destroyed him and whatever potential he had as a manager.

Or we gave him a fantastic opportunity that most managers would kill for and he wasn't up to it.

Not only that, but two members of his back room team were sacked due to their behaviour on his watch as well.

The Scot added: "I'm not going to stand there and watch players run 30 yards to get people booked.

"And I'm certainly not going to let somebody come into our technical area - and I don't even know who it was - and provoke us, that's for sure.

"I stood my ground - do I regret it? No I don't.

"This club was in League One when I was here. Short memories."

Imagine the abuse he was getting today got to him.

I remember when he first went back there with us in the league cup and he got a mixed reception despite all he achieved so can only imagine it was 10 times worse today and he was rattled.

Paul Lambert is a manager who for seven years hardly wins any football matches. How on earth is he not managing in the SPL by now?!

We absolutely destroyed him and whatever potential he had as a manager.

Livingston - he won two games in his eight months there.
Wycombe - resigned after losing in the League Two play offs to Stockport
Colchester - one season, finished mid table in League One
Villa - two full seasons and finished 15th both times
Blackburn - finished 15th
Wolves - finished 15th
Stoke - relegated
Ipswich - on course to be relegated

I honestly don't think WE were the problem.

I thought he got both Colchester and Norwich promoted which was why we, the fans, were calling for him to be our Manager.

His problem with us as I see it was he was backed by a coward of an owner who left him to the mob.

Other than Sir Graham Taylor, I honestly can't think of another Manager in my life time who has gone on to do better than when they were at Villa.  I have been watching since the Norwich league cup win, care of super Ray Graydon.

Nope, they finished 12th. They won 7-1 at Norwich to start the next season and soon after Norwich appointed him manager.

According to my dad who supports Colchester Lambert still has the highest win percentage in their history even though he didn't last very long. They hate him for leaving for Norwich.
