Disgraceful! Stewart White having a go at Lambert and horrible leering scummers being interviewed.

Can't be overly harsh or critical. Would have been great to get something, and looked at points like we might come away with a draw, but in the end a more balanced and familiar team wore us down.
We looked like what we are: a side with promise who are recently assembled, still getting used to each other and still prone to defensive frailties. No one played terribly, although Freddie had a frustrating afternoon, but they just had a little bit more nous than us.
Remain impressed by Lambert. We continue to try to play the right way and had passages where we were well on top. Judge looked v promising- easy to see he's technically v gifted and he was trying to play people in and get us going from off. Will only improve.
Keane and Quaner continue to give us physical presence up front and we do look more dangerous. Final ball still lacking.
Thought chalobah v good today. Is prone to mistakes but played well I thought. One or two dodgy moments aside Collins very classy again. Never panics.
Very good of Lambert to fund coaches. So glad he's staying. He will get it right. I've got a nightmare train journey back now but despite disappointment feel upbeat. Lambert has brought unity and I like his brand of football. Today was entertaining mostly. World away from the grim grindball at the end of Mick's time.

|No fan of Evans but there are many worse owners|
at 19:02 8 Jan 2019
Depressing but reality is that Evans looks like a model owner compared to people like Anderson at Bolton. Story in paper today about him being disqualified from being a company director for 8 years previously, reneging on legal contracts and paying himself £500,000 in 'consultancy fees' from club.
Evans clearly has got his fingers burned, but in fairness to him he has never done anything like Anderson, Oystons etc.
My worry is that if we are sold we could end up going to someone worse.
Still think Evans could get everyone back on side by admitting mistakes, listening to supporters, taking more care of the ground etc and accepting that we need some more investment. Why not sort catering? Get local companies in. Lower ticket prices. Get ex players doing more work as ambassadors. Create some pride!
And Evans must, must keep Lambert!

|Burley in 94? Crumb of comfort!|
at 10:32 2 Jan 2019
Anyone see any similarities between the situation Burley inherited in 94 and Lambert coming in? I was only young when Burley arrived so would be interested to know how older posters think it compares. Both inherited poor teams with relegation all but confirmed. Burley began building for division 1 with youngsters - Lambert doing the same?

|Lambert v impressive in today's presser|

Steely, honest, determined and forthright.
Didn't duck any questions and speaks with authority. There's something about that Glaswegian football man persona that is v reassuring. Ferguson et al! He's not afraid to be honest about club's failings with high turnover of players/ loan deals. Says bringing in too many loan players/inexperienced players creates vicious cycle where team is constantly rebuilt and never settles - he's absolutely right. Like 'throwing your money away in the street' says Lambert.
He's right about the football too - we are playing much better and moving the ball well. Just need threat in final third.
Very clear that we need a number of players now with experience after what in hindsight looks like a mad transfer window in summer.
Loved his response when Brenner asked where saving Town from relegation would rank in his achievements in the game should he do so: "It's not about me; it's about the football club and the supporters. "
Whatever happens we must hang on to him. Do not lose him Marcus!

Had a lot of the ball, everyone put in a shift and kept trying to play until very end. Before first horror goal we looked better side after we weathered the early storm. But we are toothless up front. I like Harrison but he needs help up there.
This is nowhere as bad as the Leeds 3-0, but everything rests on January signings.

"I find it very difficult to sit on my backside right enough,” he admitted. “That’s me again. I’ve said before, I’ll give 100 per cent for sure, I’ll give it everything I’ve got in my heart, the experience, the drama, the whole anger bit, everything. You go through every emotion and I don’t see that changing.”
