With everything going on the situation is surely untenable.

I hope he isn’t. If he’s on his way, there’s no point.

He has to be. He has a contract that he wants others to honour.

So he will be there.....but behave like a bell.....as usual.

I do just wonder if he was told before the last couple of games and he’s thought it’s a bit of an opportunity. He’s been a lot more animated, he’s maybe thought about how to win against the opposition etc.
The Paul Cook thing is interesting too - would a new group not want to interview a number of candidates. He’s obviously interested but the Cowleys have kept themselves to themselves, having also been linked with the job. Wonder if that side of things is done and dusted.
Finally - who did the tweet about the caretaker role, said there was interesting stuff likely to happen (was it on the BM podcast? - read/watched so much stuff recently, I can’t remember!)

If he is leaving anyway then no reason not to put him on gardening leave and have Dyer manage the team until the takeover.

It costs nobody any money as he will still be employed until the takeover when the new owners can pay him off.

I'd have thought he would. He'll be here until the buyout happens, assuming it does.

I'm not going to worry about it. This season has gone, as either Evans has been waiting or distracted by what's happening. The team have been left to Lambert with little oversight in the meantime. It's not his fault - he was employed t do his job and his employers is obviously happy enough (or distracted/couldn't care enough) to not make a change. The rest of the season is just for pride with all the old guard. Changes in the summer I expect.

But there's no way obvious way it'll change. IF we're being taken over, Evans will only be worrying about that. He's slow at the best of times and now has no reason to change (from his perspective), unless there's a clause in the takeover deal which means they have to pay more if we go up. If not, what does it matter to Marcus?

I may be way wide of the mark here, but I think Evans has given up with the team. We'll be stuck as we are until the takeover is confirmed (no idea how long that will take).

That’ll then be a year since Cook left Wigan (July 2020) so maybe when his compensation payment becomes redundant!?

The season hasn't quite gone yet though has it. Lambert has now reportedly had a row with Evans now as well. He's now fallen out with just about everybody and now has no incentive whatsoever to do his job. As I said it's completely untenable.

The one thing we all have going for us is that the players are obviously happy with the developments and are trying again!

He will be there irrespective what is going on. Untenable or not would you walk away from 3 years wages? Would you? Really?

Our so called 'saviour' handed him a long term contract last year so the conclusion is simple. The money talks.

I'm not saying he would be sacked before the game tomorrow. Just taken off first team duties while details of him leaving are ironed out.

He will be with us as long as Evans is with us. Simple. Evans ain't interested in admitting his mistake from last year and paying him off.

The fraud will be either desperate to cling on to his contract or force a pay off. In a meantime he'll keep waffling about Celtic.

If the takeover doesn't go through for another month there may be a break clause triggered. That might explain why Lambert was so pissed off when meeting Evans. He knows he's going and he wants the full pay off where as the owners are giving him enough rope to hang himself?

IF there is a break clause close to being triggered it would explain why he's still here. Both Evans and the new owners would want to pay the smaller amount. It will be interesting to see if Lambert goes full tilt trying to get sacked before it triggers.

Takeover (officially) will be weeks away yet I assume, depending how long fit and proper test takes too?

Fear we have Lambert for much longer than we want yet

Praying it's not beyond this season as we can forget this one in terms of promotion.

That doesn't make any difference though.

The wages paid out are the same unless the takeover doesn't happen and he has to stay on the books.

He'll stay and be happy to until (assuming any of this happens) the new owners let him go. Then he won't have been let go for being not very good, just a change of ownership led to him moving on. I'm not sure how much of a future he has, or wants, in football after this but it looks a little better on the resume.

To you and Mach - no-one's talking about paying him off right now. Obviously that's not in ME's interests if he's selling up anyway. But if the new people want their own man in (Cook) they won't want the current incumbent ruining their new toy... so part of the deal would be to put him on gardening leave.

It's a reasonable suggestion - and as Stokie and others have said, his position is untenable really. If the manager knows he's done here, will he really put the effort in?

However, to the OP - the fact that he did the press conference suggests he will be here for Donny at least.

But put him on gardening leave for what reason? We don't know his contract if it's based on winning promotion it is still mathematically possible.

And I think he would have an excellent case in a court of law for breach of contract against the club.....'he was put on gardening leave because someone might buy the club in the future'.

You know what gardening leave is don't you? He still gets the same money, he's just taken away from the first team.

Absolute classic ITFC would be if he went on gardening leave now, we put Butcher / Dyer in place as caretakers but they don't do much better, then the takeover fell through, and Evans didn't want to pay him off, he doesn't want to resign, so he comes back. ROFL.
