Lambert really was a clueless buffoon.

Judging by the first few pages of this tread he wasn't the only one.

I cant remember who his last game was against, but I do remember his contract expiring and thinking it was odd given that him coming on had transformed us against Chelsea. I think Delph scored in that game? 2-2? or a 2-1 rare Lambert victory? can't remember.

At least when we gave Berger the heave ho (again after playing well) he had touted our best midfielder to Liverpool.

Good lad, pleased for him personally that he's done so well since leaving us. I don't think Rodgers uses him much now though.

1-0 win against Chelsea. Delphtastic late winner, think Marc overhit the pass and Delph improvised.

I think I mentioned I met him through I job I did when he was in the final stages of their Champions season, a really nice down to earth family man. Very willing to stop and have a chat. Villa were never going to match the terms he got from Leicester, it was a great move for him.

Whilst he obviously had an interest in us it seemed that him going to games still was through his dad in law who was a regular match go-er.

His house is up for sale on RightMove by the way

Lambert really was a clueless buffoon.

And lovely to see he’s found his level in League 1.

Would love to see him in a Villa shirt again, class bloke.

I met him at the Junior Villains Christmas party at the National Sealife Centre several years back. He was running late and pretty much just abandoned his Mercedes right outside the entrance. He seemed a bit surprised and put out when he was told he would have to move it.

Ipswich gave him a new contract in January and from that moment up until the games were stopped their form was awful.

Marc never really kick on after his excellent debut season in 10/11 for me. A few injuries and didn't adapt his game enough. Lambert also settled on Gabby-Benteke-Weimann halfway through 12/13 which in fairness pretty much kept us up so no real surprise he kept faith with it for the following season although defenders were better at containing them.

Anyway it was an amazing move for him, doubt he thought he'd even play in europe when he signed for Leicester. Worth noting he struggled to get a regular start in his first season and Leicester were awful until their late great escape.

Wonder if he was on our radar last summer? Sort of experienced player who would've done a job.

Bit of a trend there. A new three year deal after we won at Anfield September 2014, lose the next six games and don't win for 10 until Benteke fashions a goal from nowhere on a cold December evening at Crystal Palace.

Bearing in mind we were at the young and hungry stage of our demise by then I can’t believe he wasn’t offered a new deal.  Given his love for the club I doubt it would’ve taken much persuasion if he was offered a decent increase.

Ah the young and hungry phase that let Marc and Daniel J leave, Jordan Bowery to arrive.

What a waste, we had a young team that won the "next gen" and we couldnt wait to replace them

We basically swapped Albrighton for Joe Cole.
