About Turn In Poll - Should Lambert Resign/Go?

Vital Villa asked:

Should Lambert resign/be sacked
Poll Date: 23 Jan 2013
Suggested By: JP Fear

Yes, he is taking us down 64%

No, we'll be ok 27%

Still really unsure 9%

Last time we asked the same question was earlier in January, same poll options:

No, we'll be ok 60%

Yes, he's taking us down 24%

Really still unsure 16%

Big turn around. Alarm bells seem to be going off all over the place.

I'd have preferred a straight yes,no or unsure because I'd keep him even if we went down

I think either way we are down now...If no players are being signed it is almost a dead cert that we will be doing the unthinkable, playing championship football. Gutted I really am, I have no hope in this squad at all, it would struggle in the Championship.

Why didn't have these straight forward options for the Randy poll?? They were leading and confusing. Very poor show gents......
24/01/2013 17:37:00
I'm lost with it. I want to support him but i can't support what's happening. At the same time i can't be doing with another manager in/out situation.Voted stay.

He's a good manager, we won't know where we are until the end of the season by which time most of the penny pinching crap will be gone and we'll be signing the likes of Scott Dann. Who else wants the job though? RDM would probably want financial backing
24/01/2013 17:44:00
Lerner should go! He is bored with is play toy. This team is just not good enough. Plain and simple Lerner has stripped all the quality. Why did we let so many players leave?
24/01/2013 17:50:00
randy one was straight forward I thought, but hey 444, as you know, yam not as bright as me!!!!!!!!! ;-p LOL. Dunno 444, thought it was clear enough to be fair, will repeat at another time and see where the problem might have been, as said, still looks ok to me!

So do we A: bring in overpriced has beens looking for paychecks and getting stuck with them for three years or more clogging up the wage bill or B: bide our time to bring in the right players for the positions we need them in to evolve the squad for the good of the club long term…….. if we choose A, we’ll be in the same position next January like we were last. The team isn’t that far away and the signs are very good in places and very poor in others. Lowton and Bennet are good players but aren’t learning from experienced centreback because they have been out most of the season. They will come good. Three decent signings at CB and MF, hopefully fresh ones with talent as in Benteke and Westwood and we won’t be far away and the club won’t be losing £30m a year trying to play EPL Poker. It’s gonna be tight but it’s the same for five other clubs, the ones who panic will go down. We are not in the relegation zone yet, have faith Lambert inherited this squad and it will take two seasons at least to get a proper team together that works for the way the club wants to head. Ny players he has or will bring in will be for long term evolution not like QPR and Newcastle who are bidding for mercenaries to help fix them short term.

I don't think it matters who the coach is. The squad is poo because it's been systematically made that way over the last 6 years. MON bought in too many average overpriced players, then it looks like there was interference with the Milner / Ireland deal, as MON would never have accepted Ireland, despite his other awful signings. Then dodgy decisions with hiring managers and more lame/lazy poorly researched incomings with the few good players jumping ship knowing she was taking in water. Learner/Faulkner are to blame here. Yes he's put a lot of money in, but the final years of Ellis meant he had to, just to bring the club up to date. This is a huge club which needs a real football minded owner constantly watching over it while at the club, not treating it like a quaint mail order english hobby for rich kids. A founder of the football league needs treating better than this. Yes, PL has got some things badly wrong, but the rot is much deeper & I can't see us improving no matter who the coach is.

Astonmilan, you left out the C, or what I like to call the Lambert option, bring in young, inexperienced and mediocre lower league players.
