Lambert Buys Christmas Drink for First 125 Supporters in FanZone
Friday, 13th Dec 2019 12:17
Town manager Paul Lambert has put money behind the bar in the FanZone to buy drinks for the first 125 supporters ahead of tomorrow’s game against Bristol Rovers.
“It’s just a thanks to everybody,” said Lambert, who made a similar gesture last Christmas.
“My time could end here tomorrow, it doesn’t matter, I could leave next summer or whatever the case may be, it’s a brilliant club and it’s a thanks from me to them and the support I’ve had since coming here has been great.
“I can’t thank the supporters enough and it’s just a thank you for them to have a nice time.
“We don’t play here until Boxing Day so it’s the last game before Christmas and it’s important for me just to say thanks to them.”
The first 125 supporters entering the FanZone, which opens at midday, will be given a voucher which can be exchanged for a drink, beer, wine or a soft drink.

2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
