Why did Lambert get 5 year deal? 18:20 - Nov 29 with 813 viewsstiff_talking

If Marcus is going to stick by his man can he explain it ?

The answer will say a lot about his ambition and desire for the club.

The only reason I could think of at the time was that it was to remove any remaining excuses. At the time Lambert was starting to look left and right for excuses to a form ‘blip’.

5 year deal was offered whilst we were flying high. Lambert dragged his heels and then signed it just before we played Wycombe - by which time we were no longer flying high and people were gobsmacked!

The glass is half full!!!

I think it was to shut Lambert up.

From memory Lambert had started to make noises, in the months before the contract was given, about the squad needing strengthening and was heavily implying the owner would have to do more. At that time Lamberts standing with the majority of supporters was still quite high and I think Evans saw that he might have a problem from that. I genuinely think he decided it would be cheaper to buy Lambert off with a long contract.

I might be completely wrong but, coincidentally, since being given the contract extension not one more word of criticism of our illustrious owner has passed Lamberts lips!

Evans runs the club then based upon his own image and not what the club actually needs ?

We were far from flying high. We were on an awful run of results. I think it was more to do with all the good things off the pitch that lambert had done to make the fans feel wanted. Inviting ex players back etc. Sadly as always it was badly timed as those good actions were a distant memory due to the poor results. This time last year was when Evans should have wealded the axe. Whilst we were in the midst of an awful run at the lowest level of football out once great club has played at for 50 years. However instead of his P45 he recieved a contract extension. Unbelievable Jeff

My opinion is he didn’t want a manager who was effectively saying the same as what most supporters were thinking, namely that Evans needed to spend more on the squad or our decline would continue.

At the time the contract was being negotiated we had started well and Lamberts stock with our support was high. Evans might have thought he could be forced to defend his way of doing things rather more than he had been up until then, or indeed since, and didn’t fancy that so he bought him off.

Purely a guess on my part as I say.

We were top of the league when negotiations started. The fact that it wasn't withdrawn when our results started to slip is the biggest mystery.

I've always thought it was because in the original contract there maybe wasn't a failure to get promoted clause as it was still unclear we would be in L1 when he was appointed. And as a compromise, Evans made it 5 years, but he'll get the boot if we fail to get promoted. Or something like that.

Lambert has attempted the same formation and tactics since leaving Norwich. It has never been successful but he is very comfortable coaching it. Coaching isn’t easy without the spot light so he needs to be comfortable with what he is doing. Last year he was looking for answers which did happen. So this year he reverted back to comfy slippers. He is being lazy.

When he came he was heading every ball and you could feel and see his enthusiasm. Now he looks jaded, bored and out of answers

Five years is a really long time in football.

For a supposed master businessman, Evans really is wet behind the ears when it comes to the ways of football.

When you consider that his two closest footballing confidantes are Harry Redknapp and Barry Fry, who is obviously deeply involved with a rival League One club, you have to worry...

Poll: Most pointless?

Agree 5 years is unprecedented period of time to give anyone a deal

Evans never explained it.

Is Lambert too safe in the role to warrant actually performing.

Not entirely unprecedented. Pardew got given an eight year one at Newcastle!
