Lambert: Without Skuse I Think We'd All Still Be In There
Friday, 21st Feb 2020 12:24
Boss Paul Lambert says the squad’s bonding session at Escape Ipswich on Wednesday was something different to break things up with Cole Skuse emerging as the star man from his team but one or two others less impressive.
“I tried to get guys not to come back out,” Lambert joked. “There’s one or two not in this morning, so hopefully they’re still in there.
“That’s all it was, just a bit of fun and you find out the brainy guys, you find out the guys that are not quite so, which is a few of them.
“Which ones? I’ll let you work that out. Well, you probably know who they are. No, the guys have been good and it’s something different for them and it breaks things up. The people at the place were good as well.”
Asked about his team, he added: “I was quite fortunate. I had Cole. Cole was good, and I had Adam [Gooderham] the chef who is incredibly not all there.
“Kayden Jackson was a brilliant impersonator of the person who gives you the clues, he was brilliant at that.
“Flynn Downes was George McFly from Back to the Future, Flynn was terrible. Myles Kenlock, dear oh dear, there wasn’t too much [from the rest of them], myself and Cole were brilliant, that’s all I’m going to say.
“Without Skuse, I think we’d all still be in there. I was keeping my wit to myself, let them guys do it. But it was really good, and it was good fun.”

The 1994/95 season ended with the Town bottom of the Premier League with only seven wins to their name. Nevertheless the season had its bright spots - Adam Tanner scoring to earn a 1-0 win at Anfield, our first victory there; the Budgies being relegated on the last day of the season, having accumulated 16 more points (43) than we managed; and in September 1994 this match against reigning Premier League Champions, Manchester United.
Lambert's Goals Take Town to the Top by clivebleedingthomas
The summer of 1974 had been an anxious period for Town fans. Will he or won’t he leave us? That question hung over us as uncertainty grew about Bobby Robson’s future. Don Revie had left Leeds to take up the England job and Bobby was seen as his likely successor.
And Along Came Jim by Moggasknockdown
Life without football is a funny old thing. Currently, in these most testing of times, the idea of missing football might seem like a triviality, an inconsequential itch amidst an existential crisis. Many of us miss the routine of it, the communality and regularity of it.
