Goals were hard to come by for Lambert..
Aston Villa have parted company with Paul Lambert and on the basis of the numbers alone, the Scotsman’s future was untenable.
Lambert’s Aston Villa have been in horrendous form since the back end of last season and recently went almost eight hours of football without scoring a goal.
The lack of creativity is what ultimately cost Lambert his job with no answer on the horizon.
Having flirted with relegation for a number of years, it seems as though the real threat of succumbing to the drop due to a lack of goals forced the Aston Villa board to react.
