Lambert have spent over £10million on five new signings so far this summer, with Antonio Luna Rodriguez, Nicklas Helenius, Aleksander Tonev, Leandro Bacuna and Jores Okore all moving to England for the first time.

However, Lambert has dismissed any talk that so many new faces could struggle to settle, something that would be likely to affect the performance of the squad.

"The good thing is there are good characters, that's more important than anything," Villa's manager told Sky Sports News.

"I think that they have bedded in pretty well. They have got used to English game. The team spirit is very good too."

Lambert also claimed that he is not worried by Villa's tough start to the season. The Villans must travel to both Arsenal and Chelsea in the first four days of the new campaign, with a home game against Liverpool to follow.

"It's a tough start but you've got to play them sometime. Anything can happen at the start of the season," he said.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
