Aston Villa Players Outpaced By Referee Michael Oliver: Video Sums Up Sacked Paul Lambert’s Embarrassing Last Game

Posted by

Paul Lambert’s two-and-a-half-year spell as Aston Villa manager wasn’t all bad, but the final six months were horrendous.

The Scot was sacked this week, shortly after Villa had lost 2-0 at Hull City – their 10th Premier League game without a win.

Villa scored just two goals in Lambert’s last 10 league games – pretty embarrassing.

Even more embarrassing for Villa fans is the video below, which shows referee Michael Oliver running considerably faster than two Claret and Blue defenders in the latter minutes of the Hull game.

Had they simply given up, or is Mr Oliver one hell of an athlete?
