Enough is enough. Tuesday’s defeat to Hull City was an embarrassment and in my opinion, the final nail in Paul Lambert’s coffin.

He had success up the road, but quite frankly since then it’s been all downhill and he’s added himself to the list of yet another poor manager appointed by Marcus Evans.

If we are to save our season, then he has to leave. Now let’s be real, of course we all wanted it to work out when Lambert completely disrespected ‘them lot up the A140’ to manage the biggest club in East Anglia, but unfortunately I really do see no way back now.

Truth be told, I think he was helped by the interruption caused by Covid last season as it gave him an excuse for the shambolic finish to the campaign. However, this term we’re out all of three cups, (losing to an U23 side in the process) on another poor run of form and still cannot seem to match up against the ‘big boys’ in this division. If Paul Lambert had nine lives, he’d have used about 15 by now.

Some of you will say, ‘well hang on a minute, we’ve got Charlton at home Saturday, who are sixth in the league and this could be an opportunity to end this hoodoo against promotion rivals and kick on’, and you’d be right. However, do we really think that’s going to happen? We’ve struggled and been fortunate against teams we should be comfortably turning over and the gulf between us and a good team in this division is staggering.

Imagine the hostility and anger if we were allowed to be there on Tuesday night?!

It means now really would be the perfect time for change and I think a new man, new ideas and someone who is actually capable of realising when his team are playing badly would be greatly welcomed at Portman Road.

Marcus Evans, I know footballing knowledge is not your greatest strength, (I’m not sure what is) but please realise that once again, this famous football club is on its knees dying and needs to be brought back to life.
