Callum Robinson: Villa prospects

Lambert handed the 19-year-old his first-team debut in a Carling Cup tie against Tottenham last September, following that with four substitute appearances in the Premier League in the closing stages of a disappointing campaign for the club.

But Robinson, a Villa Academy product, was rewarded with a new two-year contract and is keen for his performances to match Lambert’s trust.

"The season I’ve had, I wouldn’t really have expected," he said. "There were so many positives out of it. To do what I've done and for the gaffer to give me a chance, I've loved every minute of it.

"Any gaffer who gives you your debut is changing your life because you're going into the first team. He watches all the under-21 games and he's been helping me out on the field.

"If I'm not doing it right he'll tell me. He's helped me massively in the last year. He's got faith in me so I've just got to make sure I perform and give it back to him."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
