Lambert: Don't Expect Me to Shake Your Hand
Monday, 7th Oct 2019 18:18
Paul Lambert says he has no plans to shake hands with Gillingham manager Steve Evans either before or after Tuesday’s Leasing.com Trophy tie at Portman Road in the wake of the visitors’ boss’s comments at the recent League One match between the teams at the Priestfield Stadium, which the Blues won 1-0.
Evans, who had spent virtually the entire 90 minutes sniping at the fourth official and Town’s staff, claimed Lambert had “said something rather concerning during the game”, which the Blues manager later described as “complete rubbish and lies”.
Asked how he felt about Tuesday’s reunion after Saturday's game at Fleetwood, Lambert said: “I’ll give it the respect and credence it deserves. That’s it, I’ve nothing to say about him.”
He confirmed he would blank fellow Glaswegian Evans: “If that’s the way he wants to work, then no problem, but don’t expect me to shake your hand before it and don’t expect me to shake your hand after it. Nobody’s ever done that to me.”

How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
Stick With It by Moggasknockdown
Last season, following our most recent derby day disappointment, a late Monday afternoon discussion in the office had prompted a colleague to wonder what he might say to Marcus Evans if he were stuck in a lift with him.
The Beat One Year On by ElephantintheRoom
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).
