So our lonely eyes turn to a new man. Unknown for now, but hopefully our search for the man to fill Lambert’s shoes won’t run on as long as the interminable searches conducted by Liverpool and Villa.

Lambert Resigns: Reaction

Lambert Resigns: Reaction

So this is it. This is what it feels like to be Colchester. Lambert has offered his resignation, and though it has so far been rejected, he’s as good as gone, his personal ambition outreaching what he feels can be achieved with Norwich City and moving on to revive another ‘sleeping giant’, Villa.

11/12 Review: 6. Zak Whitbread

It’s 17 May 2012 and Zak Whitbread is released by Norwich City. My heart nearly breaks. A tear forms in my eye. A cruel twist of fate as I come close to finishing my Whitbread wordings. However, with a heavy heart, what follows is my review of the strawberry blonde defensive lynchpin’s final season at Carrow Road. Back in August with the sun shining, City started their first Premier League season since 2004/05. After a shaky...
