i get why people don't like Lambert, he annoyed me too, but compared to O'Neill who wasted a fortune then actively sabotaged us, I find it hard to get too upset about him. He was also more respectful in his pre and post match interviews than professional moaner Spudfaceosaurus.
Lambert repeatedly took the fans for idiots with his bizarre post-match observations. It was almost as though he didn't realise other human beings had been at the game and a score was kept.

"I thought we were excellent, couldn't have asked for more" after lying down and letting Ipswich face fuck us for 90 minutes.

I agree, but he still didnít waste millions then fuck off at the worst possible time to deliberately fuck us over. In terms of whoís damaged our club the most, there is no contest.

Despite the way he left us I far preferred the MON days when we were challenging for Europe and playing cup semi finals and buying up some of the best English talent available to the regular embarrassing defeats and relegation battles under Lambert and his 'young and hungry' bunch of misfits and journeymen. I am sure MON could very well be a bloke who is hard to get on with and left us at an inconvenient time that could have been motivated by spite but you could say the same for Ron Saunders. I would have a Saunders or an MON back in charge like a shot rather than a Lambert, who deserved to be shot.

He signed some great players but also paid over the odds for average to downright poor player (I give you Marlon Harewood). A decent manager given his budget would have had us in the Champions League.

I understand your gist here but feel duty bound to point out there's always the option of avoiding the thread which has his name in the title.

Yes I know that, but when itís at the top of the list with new posts, you think maybe itís something interesting, like the fucker has been sacked AGAIN, but no, itís discussing his fucking transfer policy at the Villa from eons ago.

Meanwhile, Bolton are having their games suspended.

I completely agree. The MON years were an enormous missed opportunity. Lambert didnít actively fuck us over like MON did, he was just largely incompetent.

he was a shambolic fuckwit who got lucky with Benteke and screwed up with every other signing. A car crash that kept on crashing.

I'm obviously slow on the take up - sorry if it's already been mentioned but I've just realised the he's taken 3 different clubs down in 4 years. 3 years actually, because he was out of work for one of those years. Incredible

Isn't it 'only' 2, Stoke last season and Ipswich this?

It probably is, though he has to take a lot of the 'credit' for our own relegation.

I am not sure about that as it was over twelve months later we went down. About the only good thing I could say about Lambert is that he didn't actually relegate us. Although I am sure he would have done eventually if we had stuck with him.

I think I said something semi positive about Paul Lambert there. Maybe I need a lie down. That is akin to an atheist saying there probably is a God.
