It`s 425,000 For Lambert!


The long-running wrangle between Norwich City and Colchester United over Paul Lambert`s compensation fee is over today after the U`s were awarded nearly half-a-million pounds.

Lambert left Colchester nine months ago in controversial circumstances following United`s insistence that the Scot was induced by City to break his Us contract.

The reigning League One champions will finally pay 425,000 for Lambert`s services after negotiations between the two clubs turned frosty.

Norwich also owe as much as another 200,000 for breaking Football League regulation 20 but the arbitration stopped short of issuing them with a points deduction, as Cowling had originally desired.

At last the compensation that we deserve. How City's solicitor could criticize our approach in all this is beyond me. They (city) deserved a heavier blow in my opinion. However, this compo will inevitably help us for next season. Up the U's!!

Yeah, fingers crossed you'll be able to get a pitch with grass on it!

Er, last time I checked the pitch was covered in grass...! Not bad overall, would have hope for a bit more, but considering what they were prepared to pay we've got to laugh and be happy!
