Lambert odds-on favourite for Burnley job

Lambert odds-on favourite for Burnley job

City chief Paul Lambert has become the odds-on favourite to be named the new manager of Burnley.

Lambert is 1/3 with SkyBET and 4/6 with Victor Chandler this afternoon, ahead of Watford boss and former Canaries defender Malky Mackay, who is at evens out from 1/5 and 1/6 with the same bookmakers.

He signed a new contract in the summer and has steered the Canaries to third in the Championship - only outside the automatic promotion places on goal difference - so quite why he would decide to go to Burnley is anyone's guess.

In other news, Lambert has been nominated for npower's Manager of the Month award for December alongside Malky Mackay, Simon Grayson of Leeds and Reading boss Brian McDermott.

The winner will be announced on Thursday 13th January.

Can't understand this obsession with Lambert. I can't see why he would leave a club in third spot for one like many clubs in with a chance of the play-offs but no guarantee. Keep hearing rumours he wants to be nearer his family and would relish a move up north but to be honest I think the Clarets could do much better. I would much prefer a manager who has already proven he can get a team promoted from the Championship and more importantly keep them up

I can't see why he would either, but I wouldn't say you could do much better - you probably thought that when Coyle left!

Coyle would probably have kept us up had he not defected to Bolton. I think his motivation alone would have secured a few extra wins at Turf Moor which was all we needed to survive. Instead of that the tight-fisted,small town mentality Board opted for a complete loser with a record of mediocrity in the Championship let alone unproven in the top flight.Coyle was a one off, not too many gems from lower leagues out there that could repeat what he did! The Board need to get a fat grip and fast and get someone with proven ability. Lambert might do that with Norwich but he still does not have a proven pedigree

I see it as only one of a number of managers (6 Kilby says) on the shortlist. Hopefully there are a few who meet the 'proven and sustainable' benchmark the TMP is hinting at. I wonder if the Board are hoping to find another Coyle this time round, when what they should be doing is using this unique moment in our modern history - when we are OK for funds and attractive enough to Premiership experienced and successful managers - to go for a long-term future in the Premiership. Nothing is guaranteed, but sometimes you can make a guarantee almost stamped!
