ON THIS DAY

He might have been awful but boy was he lucky.

Offered more than nine lives by a credulous owner, Paul Lambert, once again, lucked in, and got a crucial victory to save his, and Villaโ€™s skin once again.

Given he had taken Villa to the precipice twice there was little celebration for his achievement, just relief that the nightmare would soon be over and a fresh start available ahead of another season.

Or so we thought.

Paul Lambertโ€™s Villa won just their tenth game in thirty six and recorded only their sixth home victory in nineteen.

Meanwhile, in another move of breathtaking stupidity, Marc Albrighton - having not been offered a new contract - made his final appearance for Villa aged 24 before moving on to Leicester City on a free transfer. Albrighton made 102 appearances, 43 as substitute, scored 8 goals and created many more across his 5 seasons with the club. Albrighton should have been one of the last players to be allowed to leave however such was the disarray and incompetence with which the club was being led, this yet to peak talent was discarded.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œThat was massive. โ€œI just said to the lads in there: โ€˜Iโ€™ve been involved in massive games before but the pressure on that one was incredible.โ€™ But they came through that. I thought they were outstanding and deserved to win the game. I thought Andi [Weimann] was brilliant, his two goals were probably long overdue, I thought Bowery was excellent coming on and [Fabian] Delph and Westwood were outstanding. It was a huge performance.โ€ Paul Lambert, Saturday, 3 May 2014.
