At what point does Lambert get the shove?
at 18:32 26 Feb 2020

Realistically, while we're in with a shout of the playoffs he isn't going anywhere, but if it becomes mathematically impossible for us to finish inside them, does he go at that point? What if we sneak into 6th and we're dumped out in the semis? Does that buy him another season? I guess it depends to an extent on any clauses that might or might not exist in his contract.

I have an opportunity to do some digging on Tuesday pre match.

Got it in a mixed selection box, don't remember having it before. Really enjoying it, wasn't expecting much given its low ABV. Quaffable.

Lambers press conference waffle
at 12:56 15 Feb 2020

It really frustrates me this constant BS he's coming out with. His constant admission that we're a big club and have a history and expectation levels like it's some sort of get out to the here and now. Nobody is saying we have a god given right to go up, nor is anyone saying that winning trophies 40 years ago has any bearing whatsover on our competitiveness now. The attendances are irreverent in that context too. Literally everyone is aligned with that. It's all a bit straw man from PL.

Ultimately it comes down to the fact he's inherited a club bottom of the championship, has unarguably got one of the best and most expensive squads at this level (despite what he says), and in picking up 20 points from the past 21 matches or whatever it is, sitting 7th in the league and playing without any real creativity or confidence is abject failure given the resources he's working with.

There's absolutely no way Wycombe should be above us. If we're generous and say there's a 'mini league' of Rotherham, Sunderland, Coventry, Pompey, Peterborough and Ipswich as the best 6, with little to choose between us all, then he needs to explain why we're bottom of it and haven't beaten any of them. It's THAT that he needs to answer. Frustrates me that he can default to this 'no right, got to earn it' BS. If we're not 'earning it', who is responsible for that? The buck stops with him.

I don't mean to brag but I've absolutely smashed it to smithereens today. Watford away-esque scenes my end. I've absolutely Richard Chaplowed it.

Lined a wholemeal wrap with a combination of mayo, dijon and a few drops of my ol' pal smokey. On went a bed of mixed leaves, cucumber and plenty of grated mature cheddar. Add in some left over roasted veg from last night (paprika coated sweet potato fries, courgette, red pepper, onion) and finished off with just a small amount of soured cream.

Deary me, he's nailed that.

I think I'll be disappointed if they don't leave at the end of the season, if Lambert stays on. For their sake they need to go on to bigger and better things. The other sh1thouses can deal with it, but those 2 deserve better and about the only 2 working to earn the right.

I'm not sure what's more embarrassing.
at 20:39 11 Feb 2020

The fact we're sh1t, or the weird air of superiority we seem to have about our side, when the reality is we've created next to nothing and looked woeful when attempting anything more than a 5 yard square ball that Wimbledon are all too happy for us to play in front of them. It's like we think we're a higher league side, lowering ourselves to this dross. Well we're not, we are the dross. Absolutely no urgency or potency about us at all.

Bizarre weekend...
at 13:34 3 Feb 2020

Got absolutely bo11ocksed on Friday night and inadvertently ended up at a Brexit party lock in at a pub near St James Park. Took a good 10 minutes to realise what we had stepped into the middle of, managing to get away in time for our lack of union jack flag waving and Rule Britannia singing not to raise suspicion.

Dragged myself to PR Saturday in my hangover state to witness the worst performance I've witnessed from us at home perhaps ever. Defensively we were absolutely awful. Wilson has done OK of late, held his own against lesser sides, but up against a more sophisticated attacking outfit in Peterborough he was comically bad. Chambers too, Kenlock, Skuse. Just terrible. I've defended Norris on here and do rate him but what the feck he was doing for their 2nd I will never know. Totally inexcusable piece of goalkeeping at such a pivotal point.

We just looked lost, no confidence on the ball, no creativity, nothing up front. Jackson was as bad as I've ever seen him. How Norwood isn't starting (probably instead of Keane) is unfathomable. Downes was about the only one to come out with any credit I thought.

A lot of talk on here that Evans is the issue, and on a longer term and more holistic level he is, his thriftiness and penny pinching is the reason we are where we are. But more immediately he's not to blame for me, Lambert is. He's got a squad that should at worst be be going toe-to-toe with the likes of Peterborough, not capitulating in that fashion. Our shape and defensive organisation was shocking, and that comes down him and his team. If he fails to get us up this season he has to go. I don't see how it can be deemed as anything other than failure.

Just to top the weekend off, yesterday the wife dented the car on a bollard in Sainsbury's. Cos-bloody-mic.

What's the TWTD etiquette...
at 13:23 29 Jan 2020

I was on a train recently and noticed the chap next to me perusing the TWTD message board (probably nodding in agreement at my posts if he's got any sense). He then appeared to reply to something but I thought it best not be nosy and went back to listening to my music. Is it acceptable to ask 'who he is'?

What would you go with today?
at 12:13 18 Jan 2020

For me 5-3-2 wing backs as follows:

Norris

Woolfy
Chambers
Wilson
Edwards
Garbutt

Skuse
Downes
Judge

Jackson
Norwood

It's great to see Huws back fit, but personally I wouldn't want to push my luck with him on a pitch that's bound to cut up right from the off. He'll play a big part in our run in, and maybe 3 games in a week is asking a lot. Obviously it's hard to know as an outsider but I would happily see him sit out for Skuse. He should be fresh and we'll need his and Downes to really get stuck in today. Front 2 and back 5 picks itself today if fit.
