Surely even Marcus Evans must see the time is right to sack Ipswich Town manager Paul Lambert

More news, no ads


Football is all a matter of opinion and that’s what makes us love it.

I must start by saying that this column is strictly a personal view on everything happening at Portman Road.

Like all of us Town fans, I am just here to share my view, vent and give my opinion on certain topics.

I read a poll on Twitter this week which was asked whether people were ‘Lambert in’ or ‘Lambert out’ and after more than 3,000 votes, I could see 87 per cent were ‘Lambert out’ – and I was most definitely one of them.

Paul Lambert has to be one of the worst managers this football club has ever had. In just over two years he has managed to relegate us, embarrass us and is now stagnating us in League One.

I can’t see how any Town fan is happy with this and I am certainly not. It is imperative the club gets promoted this year, both financially and for the reputation of this historic name. We, as fans, can simply take no more and I for one am demanding change.

Lambert is not up to the task. He has no idea what his best team is or how to get the best out of them.

Yes, Tuesday’s 0-0 draw was ‘a point on the road’, but the performance and manner in which Town came across against Oxford United, who hadn’t kept a clean sheet in 18 previous matches, was humiliating.

And the comments that followed that match were disgraceful.

Lambert is now blaming everybody else but himself.

Yes, he’s got injuries and yes it’s tough but own up to the fact you aren’t good enough instead of abusing local, trusted media who have supported the club for years.

It seems an impossible task for him to win the fans back now.

Marcus Evans must be one of the worst qualified football club chairmen in the country. But surely even he must see we are crying out for change to move forward and ensure this club saves itself from further heartache.
