    Lambert off ?

    Bill, your tractor photo in your OP is, I think, a "little grey Fergie (Ferguson)". Either a TEF model or a TED. They were a great little machine in the fifties and sixties. How appropriate that you show a tractor dating back to 1p5wich's glory days, the Ramsey years they constantly harp on about.

    The Daily Ipswich

    Some are now suggesting that when he described their supporters as the best he had encountered in his playing and managerial career, he might not have been being entirely honest. Quite a few on Twatted have turned against him since an interview today on Radio Suffolk but the majority of criticism still heads off in Evans direction.

    Is Lambert heading for a new record?

    What a season I'm having. After I've gorged on all that's going on for City this season, I can then turn to twatted and get more entertainment from our boy Paul. Listening to his regular post and pre-match pressers (which usually last well over half an hour), he has drained me of the admiration and gratitude that I hitherto had for him.The desperation he exhibits in trying to endear himself to all things Ipswich is sickening, to Evans, to the supporters, to the press and at great length in one interview, to the town itself. A couple of weeks after his appointment he walked into the town centre for the first time and was blown away by what a wonderful place it is! Part of the reason for the length of these press events is the time he devotes to reminding everybody of his footballing pedigree (certainly not his breeding as we saw in the derby match). We hear about Celtic and Scotland and his European success in Germany but never the slightest mention of his managerial career. I guess there is not much to say about Livingston, Wycombe or Colchester, his one success he doesn't like to mention in those quarters and then there is Villa, Blackburn, Wolves and Stoke. Again, the less said the better. I didn't see mention of what contract he was engaged on but the effort he is now putting into being allowed to continue next season "even if we go down", suggests that it is not long term. I'd recommend TWTD to any City fan who might share my perverse mind.

    Bryan Gunn

    ABC, you speak of the three speeding offences as being the "sum total" of his offending. I read the EDP report and understood it to say that these were all committed at a time when he already had nine points on his licence. Not really that clever if that was the case, so dumb in fact, that even hiring Simon Nicholls didn't get him off.

    Ipswich going to complain

    I admired Lambert when he was here and indeed since. His positions since he was with us have all been appointments at clubs already in trouble and he has not been able to progress then in the short periods he has been allowed. Many say that the loss of his back room has not helped, I would not know. My opinion of him did not alter when he joined Ipswich. He wanted a job and they had one, why would he not take it, after all he clearly had no allegiance to us after his manner of leaving. But after Sunday, my admiration for him is non-existent, his behaviour in the build-up week, during the game of course and in the days since, has been thoroughly reprehensible. And it is getting worse by the day. Today he has announced that he was approached by our keeper-coach and challenged to a fight. It has taken him two days to come up with that one, no mention of it in all the lengthy interviews on Sunday and Monday. He is desperate to keep his job next season and his crying to the Ipswich supporters (and Evans) is stomach churning.

    Paul Lambert

    Of course, he'll never concede to any inappropriate behaviour but with the Sky cameras present, everybody can make their own judgement. He says he was perfectly happy with the policeman's actions but was not prepared to accept the same request from a steward. Well the steward was doing the job that all stewards do up and down the country, encouraging a mobbish individual to return to his seat. Granted it is not customary for the individual to be the manager of one of the teams but it is not usual for him to be such a jerk.

    Don’t boo lambert...

    Harry53 wrote: I am a new city fan having moved from Cambridge 2 years ago. I fully get the rivalry thing but if Paul lambert was a good and respected norwich-city manager, why even think about booing him just because he has a new job at Ipswich. To me that is childish and disrespectful. Just one more thing, why is the club and fans saying it's a big game? It should be the easiest game all season. It's often said that incomers need to live here for 30 years before they can be considered "a local". Having read your post Harry, I think you're going to need a fair bit longer than that.

    “That was the boss… Google her”

    I've always known a left arm bowlers equivalent of the right armer's googly to be a chinaman. What are the commentator's having to call it nowadays?

    The shepherd calls his flock....

    Lambert: "I’ve never known a crowd to be like this when their team is bottom of the league." That's quite a compliment to their supporters when you consider the vast experience he has had of bottom of the league clubs. Or is he saying that there was less delusion at Villa, Blackburn, Wolves, Stoke etc.

    BBC joining in the bias.

    BBC just updated their full Championship table with the AV v. Leeds result. Have managed to get Leeds top with one false win and one draw too few. A touch of the Sky bias, or plain incompetence.

    BBC joining in the bias.

    Idiot calling. I had not heard of the late winner.
  13. United's people had been in touch long before your post Apples. Will be a major blow for Town, not just losing a manager who has completely turned things around but will he want take a number of players and staff from their rich pool of talent with him.
  14. Superb goal from Stiepermann on Saturday but his effort completely outclassed by Sears magnificent strike. Definite candidate for goal of the season. Look it up on Sky site if you haven't seen it, pity there were only 14,000 there to see it.

    Half year ST’s

    My first season ticket was a half season ticket, purchased as a Christmas 1958 present. There cannot have been a better year to have bought a half season ticket.

    I think the "somewhere" is Cringleford.

    If it was the only goal of the game it could be nothing but the winning goal. Hardly a consolation goal was it?

    Wazzy's Ref Watch - James Linington

    Canary King, you are correct in being pretty sure that the lino didn''t raise his flag at any point, he didn''t and he has to be responsible for the mayhem that ensued.

    What puzzles me is why Klose''s "offence" becomes legal on the basis that the ball was subsequently deemed to be dead when he committed it. How does that make it acceptable as far as discipline is concerned? Obviously can''t be a free kick but doesn''t alter anything else.

    Oliviera's here until at least January then?!?....

    Err sorry Ben, if it is on another thread I missed it. As in I don''t live on here.

    The window doesn''t close today in all countries and the one that I believe is last to close is NO''s home of Portugal. Around 20th September.

    This Comment From Farke!

    LDC wrote:

    The thread is about Farke''s comments, which is what I''ve commented on and no, I didn''t see the match which is why I haven''t commented on it.

    Not seeing the match hasn''t prevented you from commenting at length on certain incidents within the game, has it?

    I even applauded their 3rd goal yesterday beautifully worked.

    It was appalling defending. The player behind our two defenders was in oceans of space to take the through ball and then place the ball where he wanted to. Well taken, but it was a soft soft goal to give away.

    Come off it LDC, slating our defenders on this forum will do nothing for their confidence. Don''t you know everybody at the club needs all of us to support the boys as Daniel attempts to work a miracle with what he''s been dealt?

    Disappointed in you.

    Tim Krul

    LDC As we say in Norfolk, you''ll argue ''til the cows come home.

    Whose odds were in favour is a total irrelevance. The simple facts are that a header from 12-15 yards should have been easily dealt with (simply by catching it), yet ended up as an open-goal gift to a guy on the penalty spot. Play the footage a few more times. It only took those at the game one viewing to "get it" and those seeing it on the clip also only needed one look. Is there a reason why you are unable to accept what is so obvious to others (even Farke).
