Thanks for this again Eastie.

Like what Guzan has said there realising just how lucky he and the other players are being able to do something they love and getting well paid for it. That's why I have great respect for QPR's Charlie Austin who has come up through the lower leagues and has had to wait for his success, yet now he has it, remains grounded.

I often wonder how today's professional footballers would react to say shift work in Tesco's carrying frozen goods off a lorry at 4.00am in the morning ( been there, done it) but thankfully not all are pre-madonnas.

Good news about Gil and it looks like we are going to see him sooner rather than later, after the first eight minutes of course.

That's what the problem is, these players think they are above 'real work'. I don't care what anyone says, these guys have it too easy. Once they sign a 4 year contract, it's easy street. Some don't even care if they don't play.

Sky Sports: Aston Villa's Fabian Delph has the qualities to replace Steven Gerrard at the heart of the England side, says Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert. In July last year Gerrard announced his retirement from international football after becoming the third most-capped player in England history with 114 to his name. Delph has impressed for club and country this season, claiming his first three England caps, including starting roles in the European Championship qualifying wins over Switzerland and Estonia.

ESPN: Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has suggested Fabian Delph could be the man to replace Steven Gerrard at the heart of England's midfield. In July last year, Gerrard announced his retirement from international football after becoming the third most-capped player in Three Lions' history with 114 to his name. Gerrard's boots are naturally big ones to fill, but Delph has taken strides to that effect this season by claiming his first three caps for his country, particularly starting in the European Championship qualifying wins over Switzerland and Estonia. Lambert can certainly see Delph going on to star on the big stage on a regular basis as he said: "If he keeps progressing he is going to have a massive career."

Daily Mail: Paul Lambert has urged Fabian Delph to provide a huge boost to beleaguered Aston Villa by signing a new deal and becoming the club's Steven Gerrard. Delph is out of contract in the summer and could leave Villa Park on a free, with Liverpool said to be interested in replacing outgoing Gerrard with the 25-year-old. The possibility of seeing Delph stay had seemed remote, as he looks to explore his options, but Lambert struck a more confident tone than in previous weeks. When asked if Villa could realistically keep Delph, the Villa manager said: "Yes. With Fabian it will not be about money. He's not a money-orientated guy. He just wants to play football."

Birmingham Mail: Fabian Delph has all the qualities to make it at the very top, admits Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert. The influential midfielder returns for the claret and blues on Saturday as they take on Liverpool - one of the clubs interested in acquiring his services if he decides to leave Villa. Delph, who is out of contract in the summer, has been tipped by some to be a long-term replacement for Steven Gerrard in the England side and maybe at Anfield, too. Lambert, meanwhile, would love the 25-year-old to pen a new deal in the Midlands but at this stage all talks are deadlocked.

Daily Star: Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has warned Liverpool they're not certs to Kop England midfielder Fabian Delph. Brendan Rodgers heads a list of top clubs poised to try to get the 25-year-old out of Villa Park. Delph is out of contract in the summer and could go for nothing. He's holding out on a new £50,000-a-week deal sparking fears that a transfer window bid of around £8m could force the issue. Liverpool boss Rodgers gets the chance to see Delph up close today as he returns to the side after suspension at Villa Park. He is looking for a man to replace Kop legend Steven Gerrard and Delph is the leading contender among the new England guard. Lambert said: "Can we keep him? Yes. With Fabian it will not be about money. He's not a money-orientated guy. He just wants to play football."

BT Sport: Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has suggested Fabian Delph could be the man to replace Steven Gerrard at the heart of England's midfield. In July last year Gerrard announced his retirement from international football after becoming the third most-capped player in Three Lions' history with 114 to his name. Gerrard's boots are naturally big ones to fill, but Delph has taken strides to that effect this season by claiming his first three caps for his country, particularly starting in the European Championship qualifying wins over Switzerland and Estonia. Lambert can certainly see Delph going on to star on the big stage on a regular basis.

Goal.com: Tom Cleverley believes Steven Gerrard remains Liverpool's biggest threat and has urged his Aston Villa team-mates to nullify the 34-year-old when the two sides meet at Villa Park this weekend. Gerrard is set to leave the Reds at the end of the season, having agreed a move to LA Galaxy when his contract expires in the summer, but the midfielder remains a key part of Brendan Rodgers's squad. The ex-England captain has made 28 appearances in all competitions in 2014-15 thus far and is set to feature against his former Three Lions team-mate this weekend, with Cleverley acutely aware of Gerrard's talents.

FourFourTwo: Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has tipped Carles Gil to become a "top player" after being impressed by the Spaniard's Premier League debut. Lambert was gushing in his praise of new signing Carles Gil after the Spaniard made his Aston Villa debut against Liverpool on Saturday. The Spain Under-21 international, who scored one goal in eight Liga appearances for former club Valencia, has signed a deal until 2019 for an undisclosed fee. Gil played half an hour of his new team's 2-0 home defeat to Brendan Rodgers' men, but Lambert believes the 22-year-old put in a standout performance. "Gil coming on was excellent," he said. "It was as good a debut as I've seen in a long time from a lad who's just come from another country and doesn't know everyone's name. "He's a top talent. Not a regular at Valencia, but a top talent. "I know from experience [Lambert played in Germany for Borussia Dortmund], when you play in a foreign country, you don't understand the language and you play without fear. "He was outstanding. He has a good temperament and has played at a massive football club in Spain. "When he finds his feet, Aston Villa have a top, top player on their hands."

Birmingham Mail: Paul Lambert is hoping for more signings this month after watching the instant impact of new arrival Carles Gil. Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair is still firmly on the Aston Villa radar and a loan move for a striker might be considered after another goalless showing in the 2-0 defeat to Liverpool. Lambert's only January acquisition so far is Spanish midfielder Gil and he showed plenty of promise on his debut on Saturday. "If you can do things and it's not going to put the club in trouble and it's good for the chairman, then it's something we'll try and do, bring one or two more in," Lambert said. "Carles was superb, it was as good a debut as I've seen and if he continues the way he has been he will be a big player for Villa."

Daily Mirror Online: Paul Lambert is desperate for Aston Villa to enjoy a decent FA Cup run after their Premier League goal drought continued. It is now eight hours and 42 minutes since Villa scored and Lambert knows Sunday's home fourth round tie with Championship leaders Bournemouth is vital. When quizzed about the importance of a decent Cup run, the Scot replied: "Absolutely. We'll go with as strong a team as we possibly can to get through. "The pleasing thing was the way we played against Liverpool. Carles looked excellent when he came on - as good a debut as I've seen for a good while. "There's a good chance we'll start him against Bournemouth and he'll play. For the money we got him for, doing what he's doing, he looks good."

Daily Mirror: Aston Villa starlet Jack Grealish is a target for three Championship clubs. Brentford, Wolves and Nottingham Forest are all keen to take the highly-rated 19-year-old winger on loan. Grealish signed a new Villa deal in October but is still waiting for his first league start and has made only a handful of appearances off the bench.

Daily Mail: Under-fire boss Paul Lambert has dismissed suggestions he is feeling the pressure at goalless Aston Villa after another defeat. They slipped to a 2-0 loss at home to Liverpool on Saturday and have not scored in eight hours and 42 minutes of action. Villa are the lowest scorers in the Barclays Premier League with just 11 goals in 22 games and have won just twice in their last 18 league games. But Lambert, who won the Champions League as a player with Borussia Dortmund in 1997, insisted he knows how to handle the heat. "Listen, if you saw me before the European Cup final that was pressure,' he said, after Villa drew a fifth straight league blank. "No, no. Pressure? High-level football? I'm fortunate, I've been at the top level playing in European Cup finals and things like that, so pressure is part and parcel of my nature. It's part and parcel of the game of football."
