Lambert: I'm not a quitter

Under fire Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert insisted he would fight on - despite seeing his side knocked out of two cup competitions in the space of four days.

Villa were beaten on aggregate by League Two Bradford in the Capital One Cup semi-final on Tuesday and then saw his side exit the FA Cup at the hands of Millwall on Friday night.

The latter defeat came in the cruellest way possible as, with the tie seemingly headed for a replay, Villa conceded an 89th minute goal at the Den.

However, Lambert vowed his side would bounce back - and insisted he would be at the helm to oversee their revival.

"I'm not a quitter and I'll keep going," Lambert said. "You take the knocks - but you have to come back stronger.

"I thought we dominated the game - the very least we should have got was a replay.

"We bossed it really, with the possession. It's individual errors that are costing us on set-pieces and the second goal was just a crossed ball and we should deal with that.

"I thought we showed grit. I thought we dominated the game and I never thought either team looked as if they were going to win it towards the end. It looked as if it was going to a replay."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

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!
