A short time ago this afternoon, Stoke City confirmed that manager Paul Lambert had now left the club and his position as manager.

With Lambert failing to keep us up and with us now preparing for life in the Championship next season, it was known a meeting would be held today to discuss his future and although he wasn’t sacked, it was mutually agreed that he would depart.

A brief statement from the club thanked him for his efforts over the last four months as he came in as Mark Hughes replacement and stated relegation ‘…certainly wasn’t due to a lack of effort, professionalism and dedication’ on his part, but in thanking him we now go in a different direction as we look to bounce back at the first time of asking.

Fans will now eagerly await news of a potential replacement and there are certainly a number of names being bandied around.

There was also praise for the former gaffer and for the board for acting so swiftly to try and draw a total line under the last campaign.
