Unless Lambert goes, and we spend a bit of money, the yes.

 I'd replace him with McLaren now.

Right now I'd replace him with McLeish to be honest, at least he had a plan, it was a shit plan but he had one and he could coach players to play to it. 

Lambert makes McCleish look like a genius.

Not sure what Plan TSM had. He was worse than PL

The only way we will go down is if our injury curse keeps going. Which it has to be said it seems determined to do.

4 goals in 9 games. Suggests 17 goals in the season total. Our lowest ever total is 36.

We are short odds I imagine to get lower than 36 this year

Really cant see goals in the side. Hutton and Cissokho are solid defenders but hopeless going forward so there is little chance of us getting behind teams.

I dont see any goals in our midfield or even assists. Maybe Westwood from set pieces.

Im not sure where we go from here really.

We won't go down this season but we will eventually if this carries on.

Is it heretical to suggest that it might just be more fun in the Championship, where at least we should meet sides who are more alike to ourselves?

It is the season if Lambert remains.

We've got to take drastic action now like Palace did. The signs are all there. We're probably going to get trounced in the next three games and I don't see where the goals will come from. We're hanging on in the hope that we can beat Burnley who are all but down already. But they will win at some point, and Villa law dictates it could be us. I honestly don't see where our next point comes from, let alone our next win.

Sack Lambert. Have a pop at Moyes. If he doesn't want it, Pulis.

At least McLeish's plan was actually working while Bent was fit. He lost our entire spine of Dunne, Stan and Bent within a month and it all went wrong. He may not have had a plan B, but Lambert doesn't even have a plan A.

With how desperate Lerner has been to get Moyes in the past, it must have occurred to him that he would probably jump at the chance right now. The new 4-year deal is looking like another great piece of business.

Lambert equalled his points tally though and has smashed a lot of records in the last 3 yrs
