Paul Hurst is officially my least favourite person in Football now........ 13:31 - Nov 12 with 3668 viewsGeefunk

Think he has overtaken fleck, huckerby, holt, bellamy, mourinho, allardyce all of them.....

How one man can inflict so much damage in such a short space of time is ridiculous

(I do of course know its really Evans fault)

And there is a view that, surprisingly, he wasn't doing it on purpose.

In the 38 games in which ALB played in goal for us, we averaged 1.53 points per game which, had they been over the course of a single season, would have seen us challenging for the play offs. This at a time when we were otherwise struggling against relegation. Oh, and didn't Mick Mills have terrific posture.

Evans has many question to answer in the bigger picture but the blame in recent times falls squarely on Hurst. Evans' only crime was appointing the young up and coming manager we craved and backing his decisions. Many Town fans are judging Evans harshly for recent events.

I dont' get the Evans hate.

I know I wasn't keen, BUT the majority wanted Hurst, Evans backed him, I'm not sure why any of this is Evan's fault.

Evans tbf to him needs to be applauded imo. He could have waited and waited months on months supporting Hurst.... October is very early to make a change. Yet no one says good move.

Take your point but wouldn't be too hasty.
Lets see if PL turns this round. No defeat so far and arguably could have won both games.
Perhaps we might be thanking PH for at least signing some players that make us a profit. Or, maybe NOT.

I agree with this for the most, and I too shared your scepticism over Hurst, but where I feel you can blame Evans is for allowing Hurst to flagrantly disregard the parameters of the fabled '5 Point Plan'. He immediately jettisoned the youngsters, made no (apparent) attempt to play attacking football, and had 6 loan players in! It was too much, too soon, and he needed reigning in. But then I guess hindsight is a wonderful thing....

Indeed. I gave him the benefit of the doubt as I could sort of get the need for 25-year-old athletes if we were going to play 46 games of high-tempo, high-pressing football but we saw almost nothing of that.

Even then, when it has come under Lambert, I'd say Downes looks one of the best suited to it. And we could have had him and Nydam dovetailing all season.

It's all very strange the 5-year plan was allowed to be ignored ... but presumably that's also why Evans was so quick to act.

It really is black and white and no in between on here. Hurst is suddenly the worst manager ever and Lambert is suddenly the best thing since sliced bread.

The thing, it might actually prove to be the best thing that has happened to us in a long while, even were we to go down. The darkest hour is before the dawn and all that.

I have more faith in Lambert than I have in anybody since Royle, and he had to win me over at the time if I'm honest.

In time Hurst's appointment may prove to be an accidental masterstroke, a quality manager coming in, and maybe just maybe a realisation that we might have to spend a little bit.

I do find it strange in that surely at the interview it was mentioned by Evans what the five point plan was which we would assume that Evans would want him to buy into, then Hurst flagrantly went against all of it.

The team looked reasonably ok in Hursts few games.

We even had a few half’s which had everyone purring with satisfaction and had us all saying ‘it’ll come right in a few games’. But it didn’t.

I'd be worried that relegation this season isn't the darkest hour ... it's dusk just before our football club slips away into the night.

With a new generation of Suffolk and North Essex fans able to support a player and his team in a foreign league, let alone Man U and Liverpool, there's no reason that Ipswich couldn't go the way of a Notts County. That's unlikely, yes, but falling out of the top two leagues for the first time in 70 years could take us to a depressing and fairly permanent place down the football pyramid, and certainly won't make us stronger.

I'm not sure "purring" is correct. There were signs of potential but we didn't play that well bar occasional flurries in the first few games. I think people were staying positive or trying to push their agenda against Mick.

It's early days but I saw nothing like the crispness and threat of our play against Reading. Or the interplay, like they actually knew what they were doing.

Spot on. Evans done what the majority of us wanted and it all went t1ts up, which we all knew was a possibility. but now he’s trying to rectify that mistake and has in my view got this appointment bang on the money. Lambert has already made an impact and this group can only get better under his guidance. I really do believe we will stay up with Lambert in charge.

It isn’t just the Hurst appointment, it is the last 10 years that has caused the hate for Evans.

One fluke play off season due to a freak season from Murphy, in which Evans had the chance to boost the team to help sustain our good start that saw us in 2nd place. Instead he chose to do nothing and just hope we could carry on and in the end were we not depending on other results to get that play off spot?

But keep kidding yourselves that is all Hursts fault.
