Lambert: More Due After Hackney Miscarriage

Lambert: More Due After Hackney Miscarriage

After this week`s failed bid for Simon Hackney, Colchester manager Paul Lambert remains focused on bringing in other transfer targets.

The U`s boss had a double-bid for Carlisle player Hackney, who was interesting Leeds United in the close season, rejected this week.

Lambert spoke on BBC local radio yesterday of his determination to lure a few more faces to the Weston Homes Community before the deadline at the end of the month.

He said: "We`ll try. As I said before, there`s no point in bring lads in that are just going to come in and pick up a wage and just sit about the football club. You want lads that`ll push the ones that are in and the rest is up to them. You want hungry players; if you get that, you`ve got a chance."

The manager said he had no hesitation in sticking with his current crop of players to try and help Colchester achieve his League One promotion aim.

"There`s other players I`m in for that`s not been documented so if we can get them, then great. If we don`t then the lads will keep going," he added.

We certainly don't seem to rate player's value that highly, just hope we manage to bring a couple more new faces in! I read we only offered 25k for Hackney!

... that is true, if he really wanted him then we should have offered more, but it is good to have the odd bid that might just be accepted one day... good management to have many options!

Yeah, if we keep being unsuccessful with these somewhat small bids then we look a bit silly but if one gets accepted we could get a real bargain!
