Whilst I was waiting today for the train I saw an Birmingham Mail report on Makoun.
The headline was
Lambert not spoken to Mak
The online report is lightly different to that and is HERE but in this online report that seems to have been missed out.
Lambert makes it clear in the report that he has not seen in training (obviously not) but like the headline in the Mail, has he even spoken to him. Given all the issues we have in midfield which I have discussed in the last post I have to ask is it time to simply admit defeat and simply release Makoun and get another midfielder in ASAP.
Herd is injured, so it appears Gardner is and looking at today you can see that we have nothing left in midfield. the longer we give Makoun to come back the shorter the transfer window is. and the less time we have to get a replacement if Makoun is not coming back. Again for Lambert this is another fire he has to try and tackle and maybe now he realises some of the mess he was left with.
I have total faith in Lambert if backed by Lerner fully he will succeed.
My doubts are now with Lerner.
