So are some of the issues the things we actually like (*gulp*)? 23:46 - Feb 16 with 606 viewsstringy

So Lambert either in a master act of deflection, or final acknowledgement of reality, skewers the club without any specifics

Hurst similarly claimed a major issue but was too bull-in-a-china-shop to change things (and hopelessly out of his depth to boot).

OK Evans hand-off: check; sports science debacle: check

But are some of the issues related to things many of us have previously celebrated about the club, the family, friendly way of being that's maybe horribly, naively out of step with what has to happen if we actually want to progress?

We make space for our old boys in various places, most recently Dyer (who is / has been getting his badges etc) but does that link with previous worlds always risk undermining the current state of play. Should we be hard nosed and selecting the very best for each position and ex-Ipswich types need to be polishing their CV's elsewhere and then return in glory when their time is right?

Even Klug (can't believe I'm writing this); so many of us talk of him as almost immovable, and we were indignant when Keane got rid.

Should everything be up for review above and beyond tea-lady and kit man?

Have we been too chummy and keep the family going then according the manager only a limited remit to change things while the base remains intact and untouchable?

I'm categorically not letting Hurst or Lambert off the hook for being grade A useless managers but is it a matter of just conceptually being back in the days of the Cobbolds when we need to be hiring individuals to do the Moneyball stats approach (a la Brentford), the sports science, the... hell I don't know

Thing is when you offer 16k wages for a first team Physio, you know you're not going to get the best candidates available ( No offence to anyone that does that sort of thing)

What else does he not payout for

which is so utterly short-sighted when we then lose hundreds of thousands in wages for players incapable of playing

there has to be something analogous in Evans' main business world for him to understand what a bad decision this is?
