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

Lambert Hearing - No Answer Was The Stern Reply!


Colchester United and Norwich City must wait up to a month for the final verdict over Paul Lambert`s switch from Essex to Norfolk after yesterday`s Football League tribunal.

The jury retired following one of the two scheduled days and, according to Pink`Un journalist Michael Bailey, Colchester are expected to receive compensation only for the Scott`s departure.

The disciplinary action concerns not only Lambert but two other former U`s employees now on City`s payroll, Ian Culverhouse and Gary Karsa. All three switched sides amid a blizzard of controversial publicity last August shortly after the season`s opening game.

Robbie Cowling, the U`s Chairman and owner, made it clear earlier this season that he would angle for a dedication alongside financial remuneration and was representing the his side as the case went before jury.

He has yet to comment on Monday`s events, which occurred after formal negotiations reached stalemate in February over Lambert`s valuation.

Although Norwich could still theoretically in the extreme be stripped of their recently won League One title, or alternatively begin next term on minus points in the Championship if a points dedication were imposed, that possible sanction seems unlikely occur.

No such precedent was set in a similar case of acrimony between Blackpoll and Leeds United in 2008 when Simon Grayson was appointed as manager at Elland Road.

Working for the U`s here could be Lambert`s achievements since arriving at City, while a factor going against the Essex club is that they actually let their former boss travel to Norwich to discuss the vacancy despite initially insisting he could not resign.

We got 500k for Burley and that was ages ago, 400k for Parkinson 3 years ago so with inflation etc etc I should imagine it would be around the same at the very least but not too sure how long a contract he had left to run.
