tant trouble for Rio organiz
Former Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert says he is not surprised by the clubs struggles in the Premier League this season. Villa are rooted to the foot of the table on 16 points - having won just three games all season - 12 points from safety with just seven matches remaining.And Lambert, in charge at Villa Park between 2012 and 2015, has told Sky Sports News HQ the writing has been on the wall for a while, and believes their problems come down to player recruitment. I could see it coming, just because the way it was happening, said the Blackburn manager. I can only speak on my time - but that club deserves big players. We tried to bring in Lukaku, Bony and others. No disrespect to the ones we got in, but we couldnt go out and do that type of deal. It was too rich for us. Christian Benteke, Lamberts only big signing at Villa Park Christian Benteke was the only big one we could get, and even then he was only 7m euros at the time. So you had to work round the restraints of it. The young French players that have come in are probably good players, but Aston Villa needs big players.Maybe three or four leaders in your team - that football club needs big players to handle a crowd and the expectancy. Any team that wins a European Cup should never be in this position. Jordan Ayew has struggled at Villa since £8m arrival from Lorient History attaches to it, and that should attract bigger players. I think theyve suffered, not just in my time, but even before. The last good period was when Martin ONeill was there (2006-2010) and he had them going brilliantly.Lambert was speaking alongside Ray Wilkins on Sky Sports Now, and Wilkins, who was assistant manager to Tim Sherwood at Villa earlier this season, does not think there is any way back for the club now.Yes, they are relegated. I dont think they can get out of it. There isnt any way, shape or form they can get out of this situation. They just keep losing games unfortunately. I dont think they can get out of it. There isnt any way, shape or form they can get out of this situation. They just keep losing games unfortunately. Ray Wilkins Paul is right, you have to keep progressing. Once youve won something, you have to keep adding to that. The support base is magnificent and the set-up is incredibly good. But, when a manager is employed to do a specific job, one of them is to recruit players.But not only at Aston Villa, theres been more of an input (from others) into which players are coming in, and for me it has to be 100% on the manager if player is to come in. Ray Wilkins (second right) was assistant to Tim Sherwood last season It has to be down to the manager. He will eventually take the blast from the supporters. The supporters only see whats on the field of play. They want to see their team win.When they do go down, the Championship is so tough. Its going to be extremely difficult, but rotation will have to come into play next season. The games come thick and really fast.

Great Britain hopes a couple of faces from yesteryear can help it continue its dominance on the track.Former Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins, the reigning Olympic time trial gold medalist, has largely retired from road racing and will be part of the British mens pursuit squad aiming to repeat its gold from four years ago in London. He has already has won three gold, a silver and two bronze medals in track cycling events dating to the 2000 Sydney Games.His good friend, Mark Cavendish, will head from the Tour right to the track to compete in the multi-discipline omnium. The sprint specialist decided the road course in Rio would be too challenging for him, so he opted for the track to finally capture the Olympic medal that has long eluded him.Ive made no secret that my aim is to win an Olympic medal, he said. Its always a proud moment to be able to pull on a GB jersey and to be able to do so at the Olympic Games is extra special. Im committed to doing my absolute best out in Rio.Cavendish was favored with Wiggins to win the Madison event -- no longer part of the program -- but wound up ninth at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. He did not factor into the road race four years ago in London.Still, all eyes will be on him and the rest of the British squad in Rio, considering the team won seven of the 10 track gold medals at the London. But there are other story lines to watch, too:GB RETIREMENTS: The British squad had to retool after the London Games when Chris Hoy, one of the most decorated Olympians in history, and popular sprinter Victoria Pendleton stepped away.Jason Kenny began to take Hoys mantle as Britains best sprinter with his gold in London, but hes had an uneven past four years. His victory at the world championships left him ranked third in the world.TEAM USA: Sarah Hammer, Chloe Dygert, Ruth Winder, Jennifer Valente and Kelly Catlin shredded the world record in the womens team pursuit in March. They offer the best U.S. chance of winning a cycling medal, but will be pushed by the top-ranked British squad and world bronze medalist Canada.I dont know if theres pressure (because of the record), Hammer said. I dont feel type of pressure and I dont think the girls do, either.dddddddddddd I think the pressure we feel is that we want to be successful.ANOTHER POWERHOUSE: Germany may be the only nation that can rival Britains dominance. Joachim Eilers and Kristina Vogel are reigning keirin world champs, Vogel and Miriam Welte won gold in the team sprint four years ago in London, and Roger Kluge has medal aspirations in the omnium.Germany also has a strong mens sprint squad and Max Niederlag is an under-the-radar contender.FROM THE LAND DOWN UNDER: Australia will be trying to replicate its success from London, when it won four track medals anchored by Anna Meares victory over Pendleton in a dramatic sprint final.Meares is still among the worlds best, taking silver in the keirin at the world championships and teaming with Stephanie Morton to form a potent sprint combo. Matt Glaetzer is a sprint medal threat, Glenn OShea likewise in the omnium, and the Aussies boast the best mens pursuit squad in the world.Ive medaled at every world championships Ive ridden since the London Games. I won my world championship in an Olympic event and posted the fastest standing lap times for the team sprint, Meares said. I have to feel confident. I back my team, my coach and the preparation that Ive done.THE VELODROME: The venue itself was among the last to be completed, the source of constant trouble for Rio organizers. Multiple test events were postponed or canceled, contractors had to be swapped out and, even after it was deemed operational in late June, there was still plenty of work to do. The track events were among the most popular cycling events at the London Games, drawing sellout crowds that included everyone from Paul McCartney to Prince Williams. Will the momentum carry into Rio?I dont want to lose any of the interest weve seen in track cycling the last few years, said Brian Cookson, the president of the UCI, cyclings world governing body. Really, the Athens and Beijing games have provided track programs that were really exciting. Im sure we can do the same in Rio.
