Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has signed an extension with the club that will take him through June of 2018.
That was quick. Three games and seven points into the season and Paul Lambert has landed a new contract. There's a lot to consider here. First, Paul Lambert kept his team in the Premier League last year even though his two top strikers were injured for long periods of time. He has also kept them very competitive this season and has generally exceeded experts' projections. The bad part is that Lambert hasn't made any good moves during the transfer windows but a big part of that has been his lack of funds. Overall, Lambert is on the same level as Villa, mediocre.

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert is once again limited to a very strict budget this summer.

Paul Lambert is reportedly limited to spending £10million on new signings this summer. The Villa manager has been under a lot of pressure to perform well but hasn't been given the funds to make that a reality. He has been blamed more often than not, even though the few good players Villa own have been injured often. The tight budget has led to the signings of Joe Cole and Philippe Senderos, both of whom are mediocre and past their prime.

Aston Villa have released assistant manager Ian Culverhouse after an internal investigation.

Culverhouse was accused of bullying staff members and was suspended earlier in the year. He has now been dismissed from the club and Paul Lambert will have to find a new assistant. Backup goalkeeper Shay Given was appointed for the job temporarily but it's unknown if he will be assigned the job permanently or if he will look to continue his playing career at age 38.
