Lambert Resigns In Shocking City Switch!

Lambert Resigns In Shocking City Switch!

Colchester United are manageress this morning after Paul Lambert sensationally resigned yesterday, with a view to coaching the team he recently thrashed 7-1. His appointment at Norwich City was confirmed this morning.

U`s Chairman, Robbie Cowling, has issued a statement in which he explained City`s approach for Lambert came hours after Saturday`s assured league home win over Yeovil Town.

Vital Colchester began reporting the intense speculation over his future last night but Cowling revealed Lambert quit the club while they were busy haggling for his compensation package.

Exactly, you are right, it is! Rather than the Platt or Ifil speculation! What do you guys think of the man? Much more than U's fans at this moment in time!

He is a winner it seems, someone who doesn't accept low standards, so thats good for us, as we are WELL below the standard we should be playing. Any specualtion on his replacement?

Not much - the local radio had a few names but I was getting out of the car on the way home for the win against the Gills tonight (Tuesday) and missed them. Boothroyd was supposedly "at our ground" but caretaker Joe Dunne is a man a lot of the fans would like to see thier full-time, perhaps for his loyalty as a player and a coach. Although we got rid of Geriant Williams, who had the same qualities, when thins went badly for him, so... it's not hard to see why JD doesn't seem to want the job full-time.

What's the points of a contract? Doesn't mean anything! Up the U's!
