Lambert hails buoyant Villa

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert was full of praise for his team after their 4-1 Capital One Cup victory over Norwich at Carrow Road.

Lambert's return to his former club proved to be a memorable occasion for the Scotsman as goals from Brett Holman and Christian Benteke either side of Andreas Weimann's brace helped Villa ease into the semi-finals.

"I thought we were excellent for the whole game," Lambert said. "We have been playing like that since the Sunderland game, but I am delighted, I really am."

Villa now have a two-legged semi-final tie to look forward to after the turn of the year, but Lambert is not taking a place at Wembley for granted.

"I have never been to Wembley, although I have been to watch a game," he added. "But it's not anything I have thought about - we have still got a couple of games to go.

"However, it gives the club something to look forward. The fans deserve a pick up as well. Whatever happens, Villa Park will be jam-packed.

"I will be more pleased with the pleasure the players get from it because I don't play the game any more."

ou spend £200 million in one year and you say 3 years to win the title, I don't think the Man U board signed you to win the title in 3 years after shelling out that sort of cash. Spending that sort of money you should be challenging for the title in this season, not getting an early excuse in to try appeasing the fans and board.

guess Storey was able to cancel his planned trip to the shops this weekend. He won't need to buy any food for a while because he's really dining out on those Angel/angel puns. It's going to be a long season.
