Aston Villa fans react to Lambert’s Stoke City appointment

Paul Lambert is one of those football managers that has a busy CV having coached at numerous clubs.

The Scotsman’s longest spells were in charge of Norwich City and then Aston Villa.

After taking the position at the Midlands outfit in 2012, Lambert had a shaky term, during which he oversaw a damaging 8-0 defeat to Chelsea.

In the end, the club managed to stay in the Premier League and the former Borussia Dortmund player managed to guide the team to the semi-finals of the League Cup.

The 2013-14 campaign was fairly mediocre, and the following season was not completed by Lambert as he was sacked in February 2015.

Since then, the 48-year-old has had stints as manager of Blackburn Rovers and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

After being out of work for almost eight months, Lambert has been picked up by Stoke City, who have hired him on a two-and-a-half-year contract following the recent dismissal of Mark Hughes.

The news prompted a number of Villa fans to tweet their views on the appointment.
