Lambert: Whoever You Are You've Got to Earn the Right
at 14:59:40

ArnieM I fear you give Evans to much credit, let's not forget he's been so shrewd here that he flushed something approaching £100m down the toilet in the hands of Keane and Jewell. He has repeatedly let player contracts run down, failed to sell assets at their peak and either let them go cheaply far too soon or for peanuts far too late. He has largely been hands-off, installed ill equipped figureheads and mouthpieces to run the club, while giving far too much power to managers who have run this club into the dirt. I hesitate to trust him with anything anymore.

Suffolkboy you are like the violinist playing on while the titanic sinks. They are perfectly reasonable questions and Lambert's attempts to fight off justified criticism with overly aggressive responses show him up for what he is - a manager who has lost his way and is out of his depth.

But yeah, he played for Borussia Dortmund, so that's ok then. Five more years of this ineptitude? No thanks.

Also, he keeps banging on about having to earn the right, like that's some kind of defence? You're not earning it Paul! Nowhere near! It doesn't matter what we're called, what the badge looks like or what we've done in the past, right now we are nowhere near good enough to get out of this division and the buck stop s with you. Rather than going off on one at journalists asking perfectly legitimate questions maybe you should instead acknowledge that we've been absolutely shocking of late and your own performance simply hasn't been good enough.

So after years of the wage bill being justification for us being unable to compete in the championship, now it's not fair justification for us expecting to be a top side in league one? Ridiculous aggressive response from Lambert, take a bit of bloody responsibility man!

Lambert Still Targeting Top Two
at 12:51:28

It's one thing to say it Paul, but on current showing the players don't believe in it and you seem incapable of delivering it. The wheels have come off twice now this season and we look as mentally fragile as any Ipswich team I've seen. What happened to all the boasting about having overcome the relegation hangover and entertaining the fantasy that we might go unbeaten this season?

Lambert: Skuse Contract Talks With Owner Evans Ongoing
at 12:34:57

Little bit surprised if we're considering giving him a new deal, don't get me wrong I think Skuse has been terrific for us, but he can't have that many games left in him? Unless he's willing to take a hefty drop in wages for a one year deal, I suspect he'd be better off looking elsewhere?

Lambert: Stay Off the Pitch
at 12:46:02

Westy, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say I don't think anyone is advocating that we go back to having 10ft tall metal barriers all the way around the outside of the pitch. I suspect the point TJS was trying to make is, unlike Portman Road, Prenton Park has big gaps between the advertising boards where there is no physical barrier to stop someone rushing onto the pitch in the heat of the moment.

Of course a low wall with gates etc like we have at Portman Road won't physically stop someone going onto the pitch if they really intend to (although it does give the stewards a fighting chance of stopping them), it's more of a psychological barrier than a physical one. But the harsh repercussions of entering the field of play tend to put off those who would plan the act in advance, hence we rarely have anyone get on the pitch at Portman Road.

Lambert: Stay Off the Pitch
at 12:04:32

SamWhiteUK you've never done something daft in your excitement when celebrating a goal? I've knocked complete strangers flying, been hugged by people I've never met, knocked my own glasses off my face and trampled on them, fallen over plastic seats etc. I didn't mean to do any of them, but when an important goal goes in yes it's possible to lose control for a moment. No, we don't want fans on the pitch and the club being fined, and yes the club is completely correct to calmly dissuade people from doing so in the future. But it doesn't make those fans idiots, that it was definitely premeditated and that they deserve to be called morons by their fellow town fans for it.

In short, lighten up a bit. It's great that us fans are getting excited about our football club again.

Football should be about passion and excitement, I've read some ridiculous comments from people having a pop at those whose emotion got the better of them at Tranmere. Yes, stay off the pitch, but let's not demonise our own for getting carried away in the heat of the moment. It's not like there were any barriers or effective stewarding to dissuade them from getting on the pitch, surely Tranmere have to accept some responsibility here too.

Personally I loved seeing the goal celebration and it's fantastic that winning a league game away to Tranmere on a potato field of a pitch means so much. Love it, terrific support.

Lambert: £10m-Rated Woolfenden Still Just as Laid-Back
at 12:35:47

No way is anyone going to pay £10m for the Woolf at this stage of his career and Evans would snap their arm off if they did.

Anything north of around £5m I think the club would consider but I doubt anyone is going to pay that for a player who hasn't played higher than league one, regardless of their potential. He's not going anywhere until the summer at the earliest and if we get promoted I expect us to hang on for at least another window as the price will only go up.
