    Mental that it's even a possibility that someone who got relegated two seasons running from first to third tier would even be in contention.

    I don't think we would sack him. Or have the cash. But when we appointed him we were on our arse so he's probably got some sensible clauses

    Lambert is an odd one. He was handed a shit pie at Villa and he didn't really excel during his tenure but I don't feel like he was given a proper shot with the support of the club.

    His pedigree as a player is really strong and he says a lot of the right things but I don't know if he is actually a good manager. His track record is not exactly sparkling.

    He managed to make Benteke look good which is an achievement with how he is now.

    Happy with Smith as we are playing decent football.

    Interesting. That's what's keeping the numbskulls in the crowds happy at the moment, I think.

    Plays some decentish football, but results are very poor, even with my realistic expectations. 3 wins in 28 is even worse than our squad deserves

    Rotherham. Fucking. Rotherham. This league really is a cunt.


    Sorry about Ipswich PES. I was ready to give up with football when we went there in 98. Not all bad though. Lambert is an alright manager I think, he's just picked absolute shitters. We're 2 managers post Lambert and still picking up the pieces from Hughes' reign. He did an alright job and think he would have done better than Rowett did.

    I think I'm okay with it (League One), but it's 64 years since we have been that low.

    Can't say we don't deserve to be there. Hope we can do what every fan thinks will happen after relegation (build an amazing dynasty with youth products and win the Champions League in 2024

    Sounds very familiar, he was always good at talking a good game without the results matching his patter. Has he been saying the infamous "we go again"?

    That is an incredibly poor eaten of return. He is such an odd manager.

    Honestly can't often understand what he says, the years of living in Germany and England seem to have done nothing to remove the deep Scotch

    Maybe that is part of it, people are so bamboozled by how he speaks that he gets away with being rubbish.

    So this relegation will be the 8th change of division in 60 years. We are so boring.

    In the time since our last change (relegation to Championship), Norwich have had 9 division changes

    Hey Alexa, is it possible to get 'super' relegated

    Hey Alexa, if youíre 2nd, playing the team in 21st at home, they have the worst away record in the division, and youíre a goal up and a man up after 40 minutes, what are the chances of winning?

    Lol @ Leeds, spend the entire season in automatic promotion spot and lose it 3 games before the season ends.

    The thing which would really top off our season is if Leeds fans (whom we have given one of the big stands to, because reasons) fuck up our stadium. Again

    Ooof that was some goal by Forestieri.

    Need some Pukki magic for those 3 points now.

    No. Rotherham are down, Norwich and Sheff are up, Villa won the playoffs.

    Is there any chance of Ipswich winning by 11 at Sheffield United?

    Please don't fuck up our stadium on the final day, we probably don't have the cash to fix it

    @fontgeeksogood I sincerely doubt there will be any trouble, itíll be solemn and subdued with nothing to play for.
