Should that be for Aston Villa read Blackburn?

Either way Paul Lambert feels he’s suffering a ‘déjà vu’ moment with him acting as ‘a spokesman’ for Rovers as he believes he was at Villa before this.

This isn’t something the Blackburn boss says he wants to keep doing and appears to be putting his future, having only arrived (but surely, given the well documented issues and position Rovers were in he had some idea of what to expect) last November, in doubt?

He’s told the BBC he’s seeking a meeting (and as we’ve also said today clarity following the rising debts at Ewood Park) with the owners before deciding his next step.

‘I can’t keep being a spokesman for the football club. I went through the same at Aston Villa and I’ll never go through that again. We need to wait and see what is going to happen. Once I’ve had talks with the owners, there’s not much more I can say. It’s the same as I’ve been saying for the last few months.’

As said, personally I feel Lambert should have had an idea what he was walking into, so off the field issues shouldn’t be used as the sole reason to deflect away from performances on the pitch should they.

Could this be something he’s looking to do?

Lambert has brought in players but has, when all is said and done, only got a win ratio of around one in three with only 10 of his 27-matches since his appointment won with many of those early in his tenure after replacing Gary Bowyer taking us up to 11th with us now down in 16th with four of our last five lost.

He’s looking for summer investment, but with the debts rising beyond £100m isn’t likely to get much (if anything) to spend and wouldn’t appear to be happy with this, finishing by adding.

‘Nobody can take anything away from the owners for putting the money in that they did in the past. I am not here for the past and the club has to move forward. I’ve got to be true to my staff, the supporters and the football club. There are great people here and I’ve always said it needs everyone to swing in the same direction.’

Will Lambert walk away? Would you want this?
