|Lambert: his form as a manager would have seen out of a job|
at 16:02 25 Feb 2020
twice with other clubs.
We really do have a soft underbelly don't we?
I'm no advocate of chopping and changing managers for the sake of it and I am proud of the fact that we give our managers time but, by heck, this is proving most odd.

That header looks better each time I see it. Very tidy finish.
Should have had a hat trick yesterday but the thing I value and appreciate most is his work rate and ability to deliver a cross/assist.
|3 points, 4 goals and could have been more.|

I'll take that today.
However...it goes to illustrate the issues we face. Very few teams will come to PR and play like that. We had time and space and we know we can play in those scenarios.
It's against those teams that are more physical or those that chase, harry and close us down. Or those that sit and invite usto break them down.
Let's take those valuable 3 points and build on it but let's not get carried away.
Any team can create under those conditions today.
|A change in Manager - would it 'actually' make any difference?|
at 12:58 14 Feb 2020
The one constant throughout Magilton, Keane, Jewell, Mick, Hurst and Lambert is Evans.
Mick got us the closest to the Prem with Hurst then decimating what was a half decent Championship team.
As much as it clearly isn't working under Lambert - changing manager is only going to give us, at best, a potential short term lift.
It's hard to see what would happen if we did get promoted (be it Lambert or A N Other) - Evans has shown no indication or inclination to invest anything but the minimum.
The really depressing thing is that, this one single constant, Evans, isn't going anywhere soon.
|It's easy to see how P'boro turned over Rotherham|

That back line would have no problems handling the aerial direct stuff from Rotherham - they also have enough bite and close down quickly.
Couple that with Boro's ability to quickly get the ball forward, their midfield supporting the front two to create overloads and space.
I've been saying this about Town for years - the game has moved on. Teams now typically have a consistent cohesive way of playing look to close down quickly as a unit (not individuals) and more over have the ability to move the ball forward quickly, through the midfield.
We continue to be slow and laborious.
