Aston Villa boss Lambert refuses to panic over battle for survival

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has insisted that he is not panicking about the club’s league position despite their recent poor form, Sky Sports has reported.

On Sunday, a stoppage time strike from Newcastle United’s Loic Remy condemned Lambert’s side to their third defeat in four Premier League outings, during which time they have scored just once.

Having sat 10th at the end of January, Villa now lie in 13th place going into March, only four points above the bottom three. Next up, they face fellow strugglers Norwich City on Sunday at Villa Park, where the club have struggled for form all season.

However, Lambert is refusing to panic ahead of the meeting with his former club, saying: "I've not really changed my view from a couple of months ago. It is what it is at the minute. The thing for us is we are playing well, we are just not getting the breaks.

"If you are playing games and getting beaten heavily then that's the type that you have to worry about. I don't have that worry. There are a lot of teams below us. We went through this last year so we know what it's like. We don't panic. We just try to win the next game.’

Villa were involved in a relegation battle for much of last season, only staying up in the final week, but Lambert hopes that the experience can help his side this time around. He added: "You certainly hope it helps you.

"When you go through something you hope it helps you next time. We're definitely better than this time last year. I don't think we deserved to lose that game [against Newcastle]. It's another big game against Norwich, we're at home. It's a game we will go and try to win."

Mad! If Villa are playing well I'm a ....... What a ridiculous thing to claim. Even the players must know they are crap. Do not treat supporters like idiots Mr Lambert. Face the truth and start doing something about it.
