Wes Hoolahan: Linked with former boss Paul Lambert

Wes Hoolahan: Linked with former boss Paul Lambert

The Scot feels that his Villa side are lacking a spark, which he feels a creative player in an advanced role could bring to his starting line-up.

Villa have been strongly linked with a number of attacking midfielders in recent weeks, including Porto's out-of-favour Belgium international Steven Defour.

Sky Sports, though, understands that Norwich's Wes Hoolahan is the man at the top of Lambert's list to fill his midfield vacancy and he is set to make a move for the Irishman who he previously worked with at Carrow Road.

"We don't have a specialist attacking midfielder - I call them number 10s," said Lambert.

"Players who are prepared to take a chance and take risks are important. If you can get somebody like that in your side, they can make things happen.

"We don't have that special type of player who knows how to get into little pockets on the pitch and create chances.

"They're worth their weight in gold if you can get them - and pretty dear!"

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
