Paul Lambert not sure about Plans for the Club

Paul Lambert does not have the idea at this point of time whether the plans that he has for the progression of the club would get a go-ahead from the hierarchy.

The boss reckons the picture would be clear once he gets a reply on the blueprint that he has sent to the board.

According to Lambert, what he has figured out in his 3-month Blackburn stint is that everyone is willing for the club to progress and not just stand at the same point and it would be brilliant if the owners have the same opinion too and they give him a free hand for the execution of the plans.

Lambert, since the time of his appointment, has maintained that transfer business in the coming summer would be absolutely pivotal and it’s probably in that regard that he wants a bit of freedom from the owners.
