The Press Association and the Mail are reporting that Paul Lambert’s assistants have indeed been sacked, just as the speculation has been saying.
What the reports are not saying however are the reasons, other than Lerner’s quote that it was something that “could have set the club back”.
We know there were accusations of bullying, but I don’t particularly see how this would have set the club back in the way it was inferred.
Of course, the illegal taking of drugs would indeed set a club back.
We do also know that it was reported that senior members of a major football club were allegedly spotted sniffing something in an opposing team’s boardroom.
I’m putting two and two together and guessing Karsa and Culverhouse were indeed the subjects of the report.
Now while I have a major dislike of illegal drugs for various reasons, I also take the view that what people do in private, is entirely up to them.
Except this wasn’t in private, was it?
How ridiculously stupid to get caught as they were.
Hence good riddance, if indeed it was them.
It wouldn’t surprise me if this was the reason that Lerner finally decided to throw in the towel.
While I’m not exactly sure of the timeline of things lately, Randy must have at least been wondering what the hell is going on at the club (along with most of us fans).
Just my own personal opinion, which could well be wrong, of course.
