We are getting worse!
Also comparing Lambert to Warnock and McCarthy is daft - they've had success at multiple clubs, where-as Lambert was successful at Norwich, then sacked at Villa, sacked at Blackburn, sacked at Wolves and sacked at Stoke.
You said how hard it was for us in the Championship to compete with those with parachute payments - that's true, but the same should also be true for most L1 clubs to compete with us, however the seem to be managing it.....
|Peterborough United 2-1 Ipswich Town - Highlights|
No I think their first was McGuinness's fault, the one thing we expect from him above all else is to win his headers, and he got underneath that and missed it.
Plenty of others didn't cover themselves in glory too!
|New Setback For Vincent-Young|
It's not bad luck - this has happened with too many of our players.
"Vincent-Young Facing 12 Weeks Out Following Second Operation"
12 weeks he was meant to be out for!!
|Ndaba Ayr Loan Move Confirmed|
Lets hope he can do great there and get the experience Lambert seems certain he needs before he can start with us
|Blue Action Plan Organised Protest|
Yes we've had lots of injuries but that's just an excuse how many of those would have played?
Norwood over Jackson? 50/50
Downes was left out by Lambert when he was available at the start of the season
Bishop was left out by Lambert most of last season when he was available
Skuse has likely lost his place to Dozzell now
Vincent-Young is an upgrade, but I fear Lambert has praised Chambers at right back so much he'll stick with him! (Like MM did for too long)
Edwards would start on this season's form
Sears probably would start too, however shouldn't based on his form.
Basically our players who've played aren't that much weaker than those that are out, Dobra was our MoM last game and he wouldn't have had a look in if others had been fit.
The injury situation is just the latest excuse - but is also an issue the club should be looking at.
I think this planned protest should be challenge for Lambert - change the form around before then and force BA into cancelling it or looking stupid
|Dobra Handed First League Start at Oxford|
That's about as good a team as we can pick at the moment.
I'm not sure how compatible McGavin and Dozzell are in the same team - perhaps why he's been dropped/rested, or maybe it's just to get some experience in there
|Boro and Luton Linked With Edwards|
I know we can't really use the money for wages to replace him, but I'd prefer Dobra, Lankester, Sears and Jackson all given chances to start in the wide forward roles ahead of him so if we can get decent money for him now I would take it before we lose him for nothing
|Sunderland and Oxford Linked With Edwards|
Is Edwards good enough to be a top L1 player or decent Championship player?
No - he's an average L1 player, sell him and hope we can find someone who has the potential to be better
|Youngster Henderson to Depart Town for US University|
Seems a sensible move. If you're 18 and not getting close to playing regular professional first team football or being well paid then there's a fair chance you aren't going to make it.
This is a good opportunity - he'll get an education and still has a chance to be a footballer.
|League One Salary Cap Proposed|
I agree with "Squad sizes will be limited to 20 senior players aged over 21 with eight homegrown" but limiting wages to a set fee doesn't seem to make sense when there are clubs who take significantly more than that in gate receipts
|My Best Town XI: Terry Connor|
Looks like it would be a very good and balanced 4-3-3 team, Tabb and Waghorn are not proper wingers and far better suited to 433
