Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has pointed to the recent form of West Ham under Sam Allardyce as proof that he can turn things around with the Villans, reports BBC
“I don’t have any fears whatsoever. Sam’s been through it and he has been there and bought the t-shirt. That’s what you do, you come through it. I understand the way fans react but the crowd were really excellent against Spurs. They want to see their team winning. Since I have been here they have been great,” Lambert said.
Aston Villa have lost six games on the bounce in the Premier League, and Lambert finds his job under threat with the Midlands outfit slipping down the table.
West Ham greatly struggled in the league last season, and manager Sam Allardyce was the target of criticism from a host of supporters. But the Londoners find themselves 5th in the table following a complete turnaround. Lambert is hoping to replicate such antics this campaign.
