Lambert 17:04 - Jan 1 with 11270 viewsnshearman1

Are we allowed to start criticising Lambert yet? He's said and done a lot of good things, but he's stuck with this defence pretty much throughout until he realised Knudsen was off, not tried any real alternatives or alternative formations, stuck with Gerken, and fiddled about with other positions to no avail. Today he draws attention to himself ranting on the touchline, looks like he panicked in taking off Chalobah, and fails to hold what we had or even build on it. Yes, the squad generally is poor, but this is actually no better than Hurst, there has been no significant improvement under PL after something like 11 games.

Nonsense.

Until he has opportunity to mould a team, he is working with what he is given, which looks better than it di. Very difficult to identify any specific obvious failings in what he has done.

Yes you are right. I mean it is not as if he adequate opportunity to change and improve the car crash of a squad left by Wee Little Gimp Hurst.

I hate to say, but i agree a little there. No evidence of new manager bounce at all. Im not becoming anti- Lambert but I would have expected a bit more.

Fair play to him to stepping into a dire situation. It's undeniable that his results have been disappointing but I don't think you can really judge him until he has a window or two. The collapse today doesn't suggest any of the chest pumping PR around belief is remotely true.

I know that was then, but it could be again..

Give him the tools and he will get us out of league 1 at the first attempt. Whether Evans gives him the tools is another thing. Lambert, in my opinion, cannot be blamed for our impending relegation whatsoever.

Shall we just keep blaming the manager until the club is dead?

Are you for real?

Not his fault his captain gave away a stupid penalty!

We currently have two keepers with absolutely no form at all.

Apart from Spence how does Lambert change that back four. Would like to know what is going on regarding Donecian.

He changed left back which was the right thing to do but who replaces Chambers or Pennington

Any manager would’ve struggled with our squad though, so it’s very difficult to judge him at the moment. Most of that squad belong exactly where we’re heading....... league 1.

What tools are they? Transfer money? - Who on earth would we attract.

A lot more criticism for Evans I would have thought. Lambert nailed it in his press conference yesterday. The strategy of the club has been poor for too long.

Who appointed Hurst? Who stood by and allowed him to make these changes? Who was more than happy to rake in millions for Webster, Garner & Waghorn?

Hurst has to take a lot of the blame too - but this is with Evans.

PL has had no opportunity to bring in new players until today. No blame on him. I just hope he doesn’t walk away, but think he will if Evans doesn’t back him.

Yes of course you can criticise him but only when it’s fair.

He’s inherited a car crash of a squad, full of players not good enough at this level, and with its morale shot to pieces. Until now he’s had to work with that team.

He has improved morale and performances.

To start suggesting that he is responsible for the current mess is ludicrous and grossly unfair.

Just can't put a passable 90 minutes together without multiple calamities. You'd be annoyed if you saw that 3rd goal in a Sunday league game.

It is difficult to see how the manager can be blamed for the catastrophic defending that lost us this game. The only thing that he can do is change the side. His options are limited. Personally I would like to see Chalobah in the back four, and Woolfenden brought back. Do those who understand football still think that Chambers is indispensable.?

I genuinely think that had we not sacked Hurst we would now have a few more points than we would by not sacking him. That's not to say Lambert is not going to be the better long-term bet once he gets his own players in, but given the players we have, one man has done better than the other with the same personnel

Had we given the job to someone who was considered a short term solution like a big Sam or a Burley/butcher and the results had been the same most people would be bemoaning the appointment

Lambert talks a good game he seems to be getting support through words not actions

Hurst never got the chance to see the job through and you could argue he would be better equipped to get us out of league one

Starting to think lambert will be style over substance long term - we will see

Absolute rubbish. Lambert has been brilliant. Can have no complaints with him. Has lifted heads, boosted morale and got team playing some really good football. He has inherited a mess and an impossible situation. Ridiculous to be criticising him of all people. We have to hope he stays next season as he will get us out of league one.
