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.”

Well, there's a bombshell. Who would have thought it. If only he could manage a football team, he would be a credit to this club.

we want to enjoy it, we really do! Currently in the third tier with the worst record over the last ten games or whatever it is.

Yes Paul we look forward all week to the football and then it sort of doesnt happen. Nothing i want more than to enjoy my football team, currently( when we were playing) its not very enjoyable at all.

There’s no doubt Lambert’s a top bloke and he’s trying to get us playing the right way, but I just cannot get my head round that win percentage which is up there with the worst in our history. I’ll stick with what I said pre season, failure to finish top 6 then it’s time to dip!

Club Media Team - "Paul, would you mind doing a short interview for the club site to lift people's spirits and give them something to look forward to. Just do a short interview about sport playing a big part in people's lives".

Paul - "Yes I'll do that".

Paul makes a few generic points similar to everybody else in football and doesn't even mention the word 'Ipswich' yet still gets pelters from the usual idiots on here.
