Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert is never shy to try out new ideas. His latest being a trip for his team to watch Real Madrid in the hope that it would make them play like them. The trip didn't quite go to plan though when the team were turned away from the ground because they were under the influence.
The problem arose because the team had hours to spare before kick-off; so decided to sample the Spanish ale in a local real ale pub. The ale was obviously stronger than anticipated and was too much for youngster Jack Grealish who had to be wheeled to the match in a wheelbarrow.
Villa's Scottish defender Alan Hutton said "Apparently it was a really potent brew. I didn't try it personally as I was the designated driver; so I stuck to lager."
Unrepentant manager Lambert defended his decision saying the team gained "Invaluable experience."
