Whether in business you're mainly a data person or rely largely on intuition, or as in most cases a mixture of the two, the only explanation for Lambert still managing our club is that Evans doesn't consider promotion is anywhere near as important as the fans do. Make of that what you will.
Has Lambert forgotten the support he got while we were relegated. We are the most patient, forgiving fans in the fooking country. There is a reason 90% of the fans are negative NOW though, and it isn't because a "youngster" hits the odd sh1te pass. Or indeed if a "senior" player does. Enough, pleeeeease.
Evans is a scandalously bad owner overseeing the ever quickening destruction of this club. Make no mistake, while Lambert stays in charge this is an exponential curve. It may flatten for a brief period if he goes, but the spectral flat line itself remains with Evans' ownership. The bar just keeps getting lower. An absolute disgrace.
I understand there would be a significant payout due to remove Lambert, and I get MEG and/or Evans' funds are finite, and there may be liquidity concerns especially considering MEG's business and the pandemic restrictions. There seem to me two reasons why MEG would not remove Lambert and his team.
1) Evans is not concerned if we don't get promoted and become a L1/2 yoyo club. For whatever reasons, this is not such a bad scenario for him financially. It's all relative after all.
2) Evans does not believe point one is a likely scenario. Again, for whatever reasons. Bizarre incompetence, bad advice, divorced from reality, whatever.
Apologies for being reductionist, but I only feel one reaction to the MEG era at ITFC. My passion has largely dissipated. I can't change the ownership of the club. I guess I can, er, boycott MEG? Whatever.
