|Ipswich have approached Owen Coyle |
at 19:21 17 Feb 2021
Rumour has it he felt left out with every other ex-EFL manager being approached.

|Paul Cook assistant manager|
at 12:28 17 Feb 2021
I doubt he'll be our manager anyway and think he'll likely end up at Bristol City, but thought it was worth noting that his assistant manager Leam Richardson (who worked with him at Accrington, Portsmouth and Wigan) is now managing Wigan.
Perhaps there's a chance he'd want to reunite with Cook, but it's hard to see him giving up the Wigan job to be assistant here, so is there potentially a risk with getting him in that he doesn't have his preferred management team around him? Obviously anything's an upgrade on the dross we have now, but thought it was worth noting anyway.

You can tell he doesn't even believe his own bullsh1t excuses anymore.
|He'll be sacked tomorrow|
at 21:04 16 Feb 2021
Convinced of it - tonight had the same feel as the Leeds game in October '18.
|Paul Hurst's Grimsby|
at 18:35 16 Feb 2021
In his first 6 fixtures, they have a grand total of 1 point. Highlights include a defeat to 10 man Newport and a heroic 0-0 draw against relegation rivals Southend.
He hasn't lost his magic touch!
|Giles Coke has signed for Grimsby |
at 22:23 14 Feb 2021
A quick look at his wikipedia suggests he's played 16 league matches since leaving Town 4 years ago, 10 of them for non-league Hereford.
Good to see Hurst still savvy as ever in the transfer market.
|Has a manager ever been given this much time|

after it became clear to everyone they were rubbish? Even if we include the free pass on relegation, most of our fans knew Lambert was hopeless by December 2019, yet he's still in a job.
Steve Kean at Blackburn must come close - everyone knew he was a joke shortly after his appointment in December 2010, yet Wikipedia informs me that he lasted until October 2012. Lee Clark at Birmingham perhaps? Went almost year without winning a home game and was only dismissed during his 2nd season of almost getting them relegated.
Can't think of anymore.
|Can anyone look at that and say the boys are playing for Lambert? |

Throughout the second half nobody really looked bothered - at the final whistle none of them reacted. We barely even celebrated our goal, it was as if they all knew we'd go on to lose anyway. It's evident the manager doesn't give a fook anymore and hasn't done for a while, he's just waiting for a pay off.
As for the tactics, I and many others called it earlier. I understand that Matheson may not have been fit but even so was there any need to drop both full backs? And even if Kenlock wasn't up to speed, he should've played the 4-2-3-1 (a formation which was successful on Saturday) to give Chambers and Ward more protection. I lost track of the formation in the second half, I've still no idea what shape we were playing. 4-2-3-1? 4-3-3? 4-4-2? Not a clue. Like the game last month, Posh were pretty poor themselves, but they didn't need to be any better because they could rely on us to make mistakes and bail them out.
I honestly don't know what Evans is waiting for, it's so painfully obvious. Wouldn't be surprised if Lambert gets a statue outside Carrow Road soon - hell I'll even help build it if it means he stops ruining things here.
|The worst thing is |
at 20:22 9 Feb 2021
That he won’t even get sacked after this.
|Lambert decides to play a diamond midfield |
at 18:04 9 Feb 2021
... a formation which requires attacking and energetic full backs, and then drops Matheson and Kenlock in favour of 35 year olds.
If an idiot like me can spot that that’s a stupid plan, it beats me how Mr Dortmund can’t.

We lost 1-0 to QPR and Ryan Fraser went off injured. I still maintain we'd have got in the top 6 that year had he stayed fit. That was the last time we had a realistic shot at the Championship play offs. Oh, how times change.
|Had a dream last night |
at 07:42 5 Feb 2021
That we played Swindon at home in the cup, lost 4-2 and Lambert was sacked. I wish we had a meaningless cup game to lose which would spell the end of Lambert. Every defeat now makes the task of getting into the top 6 much harder, but in reality without defeats we aren’t going to change.
What an awful situation #LambertOut

Inspired by the York City banter era thread that Steve M posted earlier, I've decided to do one of our own. Had a look through the thread on here as well for some of the worst moments, but thought I'd lay it out in chronological order. hopefully I haven't missed any!
