Now the dust has settled on yesterdays debacle I feel its time to start questioning whether Lambert has what it takes to manage this great club of ours. A lot of yesterdays blogs were about Lerner and I for one would love to see the back of him as much as I wanted Ellis out. Lets face it that is not going to happen anytime soon and are there any better buyers out there anyway? After Lerner we have to start looking at the manager the facts do not lie 6 points from a possible 27 is relegation form and what’s more we have 3 of the top 4 to play in November. Now I am no fan of Mcleish but we have actually got worse since Lambert has come! Alan Hansen called us ‘embarrassing’ on MOTD last night!!
When PL came the only way was up wasnt it? Under Mcleish we at least averaged a point a game and we had technically another point due to our GD. This is very much Lamberts team where Mcleish inherited a pile of crap but his signings are just not working. Vlaar made 3 crucial errors yesterday that let them in on a one v one but Guzan saved us, Bennett well the less said about him the better, KAE pointless to say the least, Holman at best is a poor man’s Milner, Benteke is the only one who might make it but jury still out on him.
If Mcleish was in charge we would be screaming for his head now but we seem to tolerate it because it’s PL. Please note I am in no way calling for his head (yet) but how much longer can we continue like this before Lerner say’s enough is enough?
