Well, not sure any of us really want to talk about the embarrassment brought to us via an exit from a fourth division team, but best give the managers reaction.
Only reaction I wanted was 'I resign` and 'it is my fault I keep changing formations, make ridicilous substitutions and tactics and I hold my hand up, those who said we needed experience were right, what was I thinking?` but of course, modern managers don`t have the dignity to resign, they wait for the golden goose of being fired.
Lambert told the official site he was 'gutted, disappointed and hurt'.
Try being a fan Lambert. Sad thing is, this is the man the majority wanted as well.
And he blames the defenders, not his instructions: 'If you have a man in the penalty area, you have to be prepared to compete with him. Everyone knows their job and who to pick up. It's man for man. It's me against you. That's your job. You know who you're picking up. You know what you're doing for corners and free-kicks. That's not hard to understand. That's black and white. It comes from an individual. It's me against you.'
And this bit really gets me, Lambert said he felt the team had 'let the fans down.'
NO. YOU DID/HAVE.
'I am every bit as hurt as what they (us fans) are. It's my responsibility. I know exactly what it's like and I know exactly what they're feeling because I am feeling the exact same."
I very much doubt it, we are steeped in this club and you are taking it down.
Then he starts talking rubbish about coming out fighting v Millwall. More talk off the pitch.
Sorry folks, his buys, he had £22-24million in the summer AND admitted that Randy had more money if he wanted it but he felt they were ready. READY? Men v boys. Watched Dean Saunders interview on Sky last night after the match and he said that Bradford had more experienced defenders than us.
If it wasn`t so said it would be laughable.
How a man can lose 8-0, lose to a 4th division side and get thrashed by the likes of Southampton and Wigan and not resign is truly beyond me.
The team have my 100% support, I can`t say any of them aren`t trying (which is even more worrying because it means some aren`t good enough, or at the very least aren`t ready/old enough/experienced enough yet) but this manager? Worst one since Billy McNeill surely?
Our latest poll asks the same question as before, should he stay or should he go?
Would have been nice to have an apology Mr Lambert.
In three teams being worse than us we trust....
