Marcus Evans has allowed a culture of cosiness at the club.
Underperforming managers have been given far too much time. Journeymen have been allowed to use our club as their last decent payday. Players are allowed to do "just enough" to give the fans some hope of promotion whilst accepting in their own minds that they would be better off just missing out and playing at their current level.
The players didn't down tools in the last days of Lambert. Him and Evans were their meal ticket. They know that Cook will clear most of them out this summer and appear to have given up. They know they have no future at Ipswich and no longer give a toss. The are going through the motions until the season ends.
The majority are a bunch of w@nkers and the sooner the clear out starts the better.
Whilst you can understand a manager going for players he knows and trusts, they are usual players who were at their peak during their previous employment under the manager.
Will Grigg now isn't the Will Grigg of 3 or 4 years ago. Just as Leadbitter, Stern John and Carlos Edwards weren't the players they were under Keane at Sunderland. Jimmy Bullard? Nowhere near the same vintage as his previous time under Jewell at Wigan.
