Yes/No - Are there actually any fans of Lambert left?
at 07:06 26 Feb 2020

Started season well and its got away from him. We're in a bad spell but going to wait until end of season still. If he gets us playoffs i'll stick with him. If we continue to slide then its hard to justify him staying. If we pick up form.but just miss out then its tough one.

I do think he has approached a lot in the right way. I thin he is trying to bring the kids through and part of me wants to see this carried through with dobra an El mizouni etc next year. Rotation gamble has backfired but next season he'll hopefukly start with players with more time back from long term injuries e.g hurst and bish etc so less need to do that.

He's not a bad manager but he's got to be at risk now as we come to the end.

My predicted final top 6
at 11:58 19 Feb 2020

Eh? We have Cov, Fleetwood and Portsmouth. I would also add Oxford in as one of the top sides in div. Our key advantage is the weighting to home games but we have to be winning them!

It won't be undeserved. You get what you deserve across the season.

Keane looked really good yesterday

Garv summed up my opinion above.

Jackson has to start ahead of Norwood on form. I think Norwood has struggled with his injury and getting back to form and confidence. Pre-season and start of Season Norwood was very different to how he has played last 2 months or so.

I think there is an excellent player there. Jackson has some really dangerous attributes but his actually footballing skills are not fantastic. His pace is great and works really hard. Give Jackson massive credit. Didn't mean to come across as knocking him. Just feel from what i've seen there is more.to come from Norwood.

Still can’t work out what happened for Burton’s goal

I think the two things can exist at the same time. Defensive shape was odd. Edwards was sucked across and initially did well to get back in front but the goalkeeping was very very odd. Dreadful positioning in no mans land and got his angles totally wrong. He has to be more central.

Injuries have cost Keane a fantastic career. He does need a few goals but need to his strengths and he'll score a lot. Really good finisher but he's playing more behind Jackson right now and dies a good job of it.I

If as a team we start purring Keane will look at world beater. (Or at least a L1/champ) beater.

Certainly agree at the minute. I do think.a confident Norwood is a better striker then Jackson and a better footballer. Jackson has some good qualities at this level but think he'd struggle back at champ level. Norwood needs games but he cant expect to get them.with the competition.

Deserved a goal but he just sees the right pass. Numerous times he put Jackson away. Lots of people seemed to slate him playing over Norwood but he's a class act. If we are taking it to teams he's excellent.

Jackson
at 11:41 16 Feb 2020

It was a beautiful goal because it went in. Really hard one to put away. Just behind him on his head. watched it a few times and i think it's a complete accident. Misheaded onto his own shoulder and its looped back right and up and wrong footed keeper.

Loved it! He did what he could and got his reward!

I don't think he's useless and base an opinion on faulty logic. Anyway i already disproved the myth you perpetuated about him failing everywhere. You aren't very good at analysingprocesing information unfortunately (dear boy - cringe).

And just to repeat it as again its not going in for you...i said i would rate him on this season.

Strange question.
at 23:25 14 Feb 2020

We have our initials on our own training kit. Not always been washed. Sonetimes you leave tops on training pitch or on side during game. Just makes life much easier to find your stuff. Simple. It's also just a nice touch.

I think you've got confused about posts that were written a while ago and linked on this thread.The stuff about rotation were old posts where i was just saying i think Lambert will move to a settled side later in season which he did.

If you go through a lot of my older posts i said i think his plan was to finish the season strong. The fact that we aren't means it isn't working. I'm not feeling positive aboit that at all. Its gutting.

Lambert has taken tough jobs. I've posted his stats previously and they are actually not bad other than Stoke and that was loads of draws. Stoke fans actually rated him.

anyway this whole thread has moved into something else. Was just a bit of parody. We've been here before a bit. For the record Keane and Hurst i was glad to see the back of. But Lambert is not the awful manager he is made out to be. A bit like Mick but Mick was actually an excellent football manager.

He's not right. I've been quite consistent on what i think Lamberts plan is and i think that has been right. The below is maybe slightly clumsy worded but i stand by i'll judge him on if it pans out.

I can accept an opinion that i've been over-positive as that is an opinion. I think ive tries to be more balanced. So many on here only have an opinion after things have gone a bit wrong. When we sat top 4 games ago i didnt see people making blanket statements of praise! 4 games later he's awful and useless.

If we dont make top 6 minimum its failure and their a decision to be made.

Oh here he is. 26% Nonsense man. I cant remember the arse from elbow bit (Disagree) but you did bang on about 26% a lot which remains utterly pointless.

Again i'll remain consistent and we'll judge Lambert on this season. If the season ended 4 games ago we were top and he would be successful. If the season ends today he has failed in my opinion. It doesn't end on either of these dates.

Right now he needs to turn it around and fast! If we dont least make top 6 it will be a failure. It Doesnt make your 26% Nonsense any less stupid. Its judging what we should be judging him on.

Whether we sack or not is another debate. Depends if there really is a long term plan in place etc.

You are welcome to go back through my posts btw. Think i'm fairly consistent. An example from Nov 2nd (Copy and paste and not amended):


For what's it's worth, I think he made too many changes on Sat. There are pros and cons to his rotation for sure and doesn't NEED to rotate as much. But He has us top so.He is right so far. Still think his plan will be to settle the team more for run in.

Don't see how i'm waving anything in anyone's face.

Sorry but you're just making stuff up. I have a real issue where people just make stuff up to fit their viewpoint.

I defended him only to the extent of stating i think his plan was to move to a more settled side. this proved right. You've absolutely made up a statement about it working wonders. In actual fact i said thinks like its a gamble and we'll see if it pays off. Don't just lie ok?

This was a light hearted thread which some cottoned onto. Not sure why you are so annoyed. You're entire argument is having some sort of go at me for something i said which proves to right. I'm not Paul Lambert, it wasnt MY system.
