Totally agree that we should not be getting rid of Bruce. if we did we will be even more of a laughing stock of club than we are already with our merry go round of managerial appointments.
My recollection of Lambert is that he is an honourable bloke who tried to do his best but he did fail just like subsequent managers to get us doing the simple basics properly. Maybe the situation at the club prevented that but I do struggle with concept that he failed to turning out a side who are at minimum difficult to beat. His tactics ended up being totally hit and hope. Maybe he was the right manager at the wrong time but either way he was a poor manager at the club and had to go. Other managers have managed in similar circumstances...Rowlett for example and been better.
Having said all that the players today must shoulder most of the blame. They are professional footballers and mindful of that I would expect, for example, Jedinak to be able to pass to his own player more than one pass in ten. The playing staff needs a complete overhaul. We need players who actually think the result matters. Bruce needs the chance to bring is own men in.
