Lambert's managing career didn't begin very well when he started with Livingston and only won 5 in 32 games. And as a result his first Job ended after only 6 months with a win percentage of only 15%.
Later the same year that he was fired he took up the new reigns at Wycombe where he did considerably better. He led Wycombe to the League cup semi-finals after defeating Premier League sides Fulham and Charlton Athletic. Then in the semi-final first leg he led his team to a 1-1 first leg draw against then Premier League champions Chelsea. Unfortunately Lambert resigned after 108 games with the club after elimination from the League Two play-offs by Stockport County. He left with a much better win percentage of 40%.
Lambert's 3rd managerial stint was with Colchester United where he only managed for 10 months before leaving in that time he managed 43 games and won 19. Ironically Lamberts last game with the club was a 7-1 victory over his team to be Norwich City. Which was the clubs biggest away victory in its history!
Then came the club where all the magic happened for lambert. On the 18th of August 2009 lambert took over a league 1 Norwich city. He then went on to win the league with them in the same year. Then one year later lambert became only the second manager ever to lead a club though 2 successive promotions to the Premier League since Man City in 1999. In his time with Norwich he managed 142 games and won 70. Giving him a win percentage of just under 50% over 3 years and 3 different leagues.
Then finally his latest job at Aston Villa. Where in 3 years at the club he managed to keep them secure in the top flight for all 3 of the years. And after 115 games with the club he was sacked with a win percentage of 30%.
So do you deem him as the right guy for the job. He was incredibly successful with Norwich in the championship and managed to keep Aston Villa in the Premier League. But once again only time will tell.
