He is loathsome and completely unaccountable; he is the worst of British. And aligned with all the hate that’s building in the US under Trump.
Farages attacks on the BBC are just sickening - his approach is just to shout down any diligence of his views and history. That’s the Trump method. Are people really going to validate him at the polls? WTF is going on in this country.
This video almost seems like a parody, but for me it sums up the uninformed under current that has got us to this place!
"cause Wilder is our gaffer who leads us all the way playing proper football the sheff united way allez allez allez"
Says it all to me..... great leadership, technical football as it should be played, and a team with an identity
We've so lost ours through the Evans reign, and we really lost our identity on the pitch especially the two previous seasons. I seen signs of a passing system returning... I just really hope Lambert is the man to build us back up again, into a club we can all be proud of again.
1. In the play-off season of 14/15 we did not get goals from a long ball style, only 3 or 4 goals from the on form Murphy were from long distribution, the majority were from his individual brilliance and a large amount from corners,
2. Our demise is not all down to Hurst... Evans allowed Hurst to destroy the quality of our attack and gamble on lower league strikers... but Hurst also inherited a team that had no established right back despite this being a problem for seasons, loaners leaving left us exposed in key positions, players had been drilled to play in a conservative way, senior players failed to transition and the team was reliant loanees and was carrying long term injuries
3. Success in this league is all about money... no it’s not, it’s about a progressive manager playing a progressive system and making astute purchases - the Blades are the proof before us, but also look at what Preston are doing on a shoe string. At the extreme is Ajax - system, ethos, coaching, £40m budget
4. Mick was a sh!t manager... no he was an astute and relatively nice guy, who chose the most conservative path to keep a team of a lower quality than he was used to in a safe position. The problem was every team that came to Portman Road was playing better football than us - top teams, middle teams and lower teams.... and that was not sustainable from a fan base perspective. Then his ego and belligerence took over
5. Lambert just needs a pre-season... no Lambert needs to settle on a system that makes the best use of his players and will be effective in League One... he is failing to make the best use of Judge and Jackson right now
I did say I wasn’t going to comment on Mick anymore... but his ridiculous comments need some feedback and who better than Mick Mills.
His frankly brilliant insight to where it all went wrong for Mick M and why his tenure was unsustainable is all people need to hear. And what the 80% numbskulls would all agree with.
It’s simple - after some losses we moved to a very reserved style of often 8 defensive players, players became more and more conservative, the style less and less expansive, a reliance on LOANEES and a few flare attacking playing out of their skin converting minimal chances does not a sustainable team make, AND THIS IS THE CRITICAL BIT, to be outplayed at home by the top teams is one thing, to be outplayed at home by mid table teams is another but to also be outplayed by the lower table teams was beyond the pale.
The Sun and Telegraph getting things pretty spot on...
"McCarthy, a decent and respectable chap, did his best under testing financial circumstances. The fans could not stomach the football but McCarthy finished 14th, ninth, sixth, seventh, 16th and 12th without spending a cent."
"Hurst arrived as one of English football's bright young coaching minds, and was supposed to be the antidote to the more prosaic football offered up by his predecessor Mick McCarthy. That football was enough to keep Ipswich safe but fans had turned long before his departure; surprisingly, few now consider that to be a mistake."
I assume this is part because he hasn't had one with a club for while, and has been in damage limitation mode. And also because he feels he can start a clean slate and that players can work afresh in his system and ethos.
And of course he knows that we need a good start in that league - i.e. get a confidence and a momentum with our squad and it would be hard to stop.
BUT.... it does mean a wobble start is going to be questioned.
I'll back the project come what may, until I start seeing poor football consistently. Which we have yet to see under Lambert, poor results yes, but more down to error and a lack of a form striker.
I still think he's going to need to invest in another striker beyond what he has today.
On another - a big part of the MASTER plan will be a HUGE promotion bonus for players, surely this is a big factor in the Chambo / Judge deals.
