Lambert: Sport Can Play a Leading Role When Life Gets Back to Normal
Wednesday, 8th Apr 2020 14:51
Blues boss Paul Lambert believes sport can play a leading role once life gets back to normal following the coronavirus crisis.
Football is currently suspended indefinitely, while other big sporting events have also been postponed or cancelled due to the pandemic.
“People are missing sport and it can play a massive part in us getting back to normal life after this virus is under control,” Lambert told the club site.
“It’s not just football. Look at the big events that have been lost, Wimbledon, the Grand National, the golf, the Olympics. Those events would have been watched by millions and millions.
“For a lot of people sport plays a significant part in their life and they can’t wait for football, cricket, tennis and the rest to get going again.
“I think there will be a big positive reaction when life gets back to normal and sport can have a leading role to play in that.
"The virus might change the perception of supporters as well. They might realise sport is to be enjoyed and that it’s not all doom and gloom.”

One of the Strongest Squads? by NormEmerges
I keep hearing that ITFC has one of the strongest squads in League One. It’s certainly true that we have one of the biggest squads, but strongest? I would assume ‘strongest’ to mean ‘includes higher quality players for this league’. What do the facts tell us?
Tractor Boy on a Mission by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
Damned Lies and Football Statistics? by bluesman
Football is possibly the most observed sport of all time, and there is plenty of statistical information available in the public domain to make some informed observations about clubs and managers, and their performance over the years.
From Marcus's Side of the Fence by essexccc
Most of the thinking, including my own, around the possible sale of the club, has quite naturally focused on the possibilities from the club's and supporters' points of view.
