The Scot had a tough time at Villa Park and is going through a similar rough patch at Ewood Park.
Paul Lambert certainly had his struggles whilst Villa boss and the Scot was clearly in charge of a sinking ship at Villa Park.
He was often criticised by the Villa fans during that time for some of his comments in the press and the transfer dealings at the club.
He took over from Gary Bowyer in November last year but has failed to have a major impact on the club’s fortunes.
Now, with the club winning just once in their last five games, Lambert’s future at the club is coming into question.
One thing for sure, he will not be making the same mistakes he made at Villa.
Speaking to the BBC he stated:
"I can't keep being a spokesman for the football club.
"I went through the same at Aston Villa and I'll never go through that again.
"We need to wait and see what is going to happen. Once I've had talks with the owners, there's not much more I can say. It's the same as I've been saying for the last few months."
There is no doubt that Lambert outstayed his welcome at Villa and problems behind-the-scenes did not help his fortunes.
If he finds himself in a similar situation at Ewood Park, don’t expect him to be sticking around on this occasion.
