Aston Villa: 5 Bold Predictions for the Paul Lambert Era at Villa Park

Aston Villa's search for a manager came to an end this weekend with the news that the club has appointed former Norwich manager Paul Lambert on Saturday.

Chief executive Paul Faulkner had previously stated that the club wanted to find someone who would be with the club "for a long period of time to build their team." This should bode well for the 42-year-old, who will be able to steadily build a team of his own making.

After solid spells at Wycombe and Colchester, Lambert really came into his own at Norwich. He guided the Canaries from League One to an impressive 12th place finish in the Premier League.

What can Villa fans expect for the Scot though?

It is no easy task that he has walked into at Villa Park. The club is coming off the back of a 16th place finish last year in the league and serious work will have to be done to turn their fortunes around.

Here are five things that I believe will change at the club following Lambert's arrival.

How do you think he will affect the Villains? Post your comments below.
