Ipswich Town have sacked “Agent” Paul Hurst, the club have announced.

Hurst and his staff have been relieved of their duties this afternoon after just five months in charge at Portman Road.

It seems that enough was enough for the owner, Marcus Evans after yet another defeat at the hands of Leeds United last night.

Ipswich are currently rock bottom of the Championship table with an appalling record of P14 W1 D6 L7 and a goal difference of -11.

The interesting thing about all this is that according to the Daily Mirror Evans has reportedly already sounded out former Norwich boss, Paul Lambert to replace him.

I can imagine how well that would go down with the Ipswich faithful, although in their situation, I imagine they’d take him right now.

A long-standing lack of investment from the reportedly very wealthy Evans and running the club, basically on a shoestring for most of the last decade have hit the Tractor Boy’s hard. Attendances have dropped sharply and it makes you realise just good a job that Mick McCarthy had been doing.

Whether Lambert is the next in line to take up the manager’s job or not, the stark reality is that they’re in a whole heap of trouble and with Lambert having little real success since leaving Norwich, I’m not sure he’d be the answer anyway.

Oh dear, how sad, never mind.

  • There were so many managers living in the shadows of Paul Lambert after he had left. We have seen fans (and maybe players discreetly) complaining how the likes of Chris Hughton and Alex Neil destroying the flowing attacking play and never say die antics that Paul Lambert has instilled. Well… that’s past tense now. Number 1: The set of players used to be playing for Paul Lambert are long gone. Number 2: Stuart Webber and Daniel Farke has created a new identity- possession Football- at the club. While both DF and PL earned their coaching badges in Germany, one is clearly on the up while the other has stopped progressing since he left Norwich.
