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.”

On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.

As if going to an FA Cup semi-final was not stressful enough, I had added stress. I travelled on a Supporters Club coach, on board many families, including my father and my wife
