'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Lambert Fined, Fans Banned & U`s On Compo Claim


Paul Lambert was last week fined 750 and warned about his future conduct within the same 24-hour period as two Norwich fans received indefinite bans from attending Carrow Road.

This delayed fallout from the season`s opening game between Colchester United and Norwich City in Norfolk also prompted the U`s to reaffirm their stubbornness over compensation for Lambert.

The former Colchester manager, offered City`s job inside seven days of co-ordinating their record 7-1 defeat, was reprimanded by the Football Association last Tuesday for a tirade against an official in his last game at United. That incident, against Yeovil, came just hours before Norwich contacted U`s Chairman, Robbie Cowling, to ask permission to instantly appoint the Scott.

On Wednesday, Colchester held a press conference to unveil former City youth coach and Premier League manager, Aidy Boothroyd as Lambert`s replacement.

Cowling and club Chief Executive, Steve Bradshaw, confirmed before Vital Colchester and others in the assembled media, that negotiations regarding compensation over Lambert still look set for a tribunal.

Meanwhile, those Norwich season-ticket holders, Mark and Daniel Warman, who ventured on to the pitch in sheer ire during their side`s capitulation last month, are currently forbidden from attending future home games. The pair breached club security rules and caused City undue financial loss.

Very funny that the two idiots probably paid around 500 for their season tickets and got to see 25minutes of the U's pummelling there team. 20 per minute of football!!

Intriguing...there was a sizeable minority down here who saw what those two did as spending 400 of their hard-earned to make it abundantly clear to the board just how angry they were with what had been done to our club over the last few years. Reckless, yes, reactionary, undoubtedly, but braver men than I...
