Let's hope Lambert believes what Gill has said!!!!!!
at 19:46 21 Aug 2020

Consistent style of play will be "vital" according to Gill. Rotation of a few players will not be a problem if the management team have learned their lesson. Find a pattern of play, develop a style and with those players we should be well in the mix. I really hope Mr Lambert can show the talked of "consistent" approach. Seeing is believing I guess.

Lambert can be sacked for free if fails to deliver top 6 finish
at 15:49 4 Mar 2020

According to Daily Mail (no I'm not a regular reader of it but have seen the article!), Lambert can be dismissed for free if he fails to deliver top 6 finish. It claims that a clause in the contract extension could "backfire" on him. If true, Evans will not sack him until mathematically impossible and this would certainly be far too late for any short term appointment to make any difference to the outcome of our season. More likely, he will wait, sack him with 3 or 4 games to go and use the appointment of a new man to help (once again) boost the all important flagging season ticket sales. Alongside this, the promise of a bright new era and some "extra" funds (which will be the result of losing Downes and Wolf but only partially reinvested in the playing squad). Do you think we might just fall for this one more time

Lambert has played a blinder
at 17:13 29 Feb 2020

All the smoke and mirrors nonsense before Christmas with little quips about maybe not staying with the club worked a treat. Evans bought it and even if he sacks him soon or has some break clauses in the contract, Lambert will make some good money out of it. Great work by Paul, nae bother!

Recovering from a disastrous transfer window.
at 17:03 29 Feb 2020

On 5Live today, Tony Puils said just before he arrived, Boro had a disastrous transfer window. Spent good money badly. He suggested it would take the club three years to recover from it. Hurst's one transfer window was our complete disaster. Lost Webster, Waghorn, Garner. McGoldrick departed too. Hurst brought in Donacien, Roberts, Nolan, Nsiala, Edwards plus Chalobah and Walters. With the exception of Chalobah (not ours anyway) they all flopped. Perhaps we will never recover from such abysmal recruitment. No football oversight at the top of the club is really to hlame.

Sears brought on for 5 mins. I'm done. Lambert is inept.
at 17:09 22 Feb 2020

Desperately need a goal. Running out of ideas. Striker on bench publicly stating he needs minutes after his comeback to first team action fully 7 weks ago. So Lambert brings him on with 4 minutes to play. Ooh, be fair, Sears is not 100% I hear you cry. Jesus, if after 7 weeks in the first team picture he can't manage 20-25 minutes then he shouldn't be on the bench at all. Norwood out and Jackson now suspended. Sears better be fit after all 'cos there is nobody else to play up top with Keane now (who will, no doubt, get an injury soon and certainly cannot lead the line on his own anyway). Dobra to come back into contention, nah, Lambert doesn't trust the kid. Our manager barely has a coherent Plan A. Right now we must be looking at Plan D up front. God help us. I may be slow at catching on, but Lambert is a fraud and I have had it with him. Dear oh dear, it's nae normal - claptrap Paul. 5 minutes for Sears in those circumstances. 5 bleeding minutes you idiot.

Blackpool and Jon Nolan
at 18:31 26 Jan 2020

According to the same source that gave me the early info on Town and Hughill, Lambert as boss and Bree coming on loan from Villa, Blackpool are signing a midfielder from Prem League on loan so he cannot see anything in the Nolan stuff. Just passing it on so don't come back and shoot me if it is wrong and before anyone has a go, I am definitely not trying to be a Billy Big Bollox either!

Shocking defending for every goal
at 20:38 29 Dec 2019

Woolf too easily beaten for first. No real danger for second just rubbish goalkeeping. No challenge for third - Dozzer jogging along. Nobody taking any responsibility for a cross for number four and goal five we had totally lost all shape (kind of understandable given the need to get an equaliser and time running out I guess).

Why is he not getting a sniff? Punishment for Accrington? He certainly would look to move us up the pitch at speed unlike Judge, Nolan, Skuse et al.

Ffs, Curtis picked that ball up in his own half and carried it unchallenged to the edge of our box whilst Edwards jogged behind him and various others backed off. Dear oh dear.

Far too little forward drive from midfield
at 19:02 21 Dec 2019

This has long been our problem. Skuse is an out and out holding midfielder. Nolan claims he is box to box but I see far too little of that from him. His first instinct seems to get the ball, pirrouette, lay it off (normally square or back) and then make himself available again. All very neat and tidy but lung busting runs to get into the box are few and far between. Downes is a fine prospect with all the ingredients but right now he seems reluctant to drive forward. Edwards is pony, Judge I fear his legs have gone. He no longer beats a man and prefers to check back inside. Huws could and should be a force but his performances have been patchy at best and the necessary run of games are not happening. Dozzer can look sublime or anonymous and is not driving us forward when he plays. You know what, I'd like to see young Dobra closer to the starting 11. He has the drive, the turn of pace, the direct running that scares defenders. I know he is a kid but that hunger could be nurtured. Of course, there is Teddy Bishop but we cannot really go there with any confidence. If only we could!

Sears and Bish in warm up. Two players who could genuinely make a difference if they could stay fit. Bishop on form moves the team forward and can play on half turn. I know, staying fit, staying fit, staying fit.......................

Strange stats

Of the rop 14 teams in L1, the two teams with the best away records also have pretty much the worst home records - Rotherham and Town. Just coincidence?

You deserve everything you get. As soon as I hear anyone moaning over the next five years I will simply ask them who they voted for. If they say "Tory" then I will dismiss them instantly, tell them in no uncertain terms where to go. If you can't see all he is doing is trotting out obfuscation peppered with the tedious "Get Brexit Done" claptrap whilst, as Andrew Marr has just said "chuntering" then you don't want to see him for what he is. A fraud.

We used to go toe to toe with the best. Hard to believe
at 17:08 27 Oct 2019

Watching Liverpool now in full flow against Spurs brings memories of the 70s and early 80s flooding back. I know we didn't beat Liverpool at Anfield until Adam Tanner in 94/95 relegation year but I attended some great games there and a few good draws when they were European Champions. A few wins at PR in that time, Mariner and D'Avray headers spring to mind. All distant memories I know but never to be forgotten. Amazi g times to be a young boy and Town fan (from Liverpool!!)
