City's never-say-die attitude impresses

Since Lambert and his coaching team were appointed I've been impressed with how the players are now benefiting from their input on the training field. We have seen the fitness levels improve immensely and the character of the players has been given a never-say-die attitude.

We have seen the fitness levels improve immensely and the character of the players has been given a never-say-die attitude.
This has been shown even more so in recent weeks when you look at the results against Brentford with only 10 men and then to come from behind to beat Walsall, Brighton and Southend.
It's been most evident how Lambert has been brave and changed the formation of the team at any given time when it hasn't been working. He's only interested in winning and always throws caution to the wind by going for all out attack which is exactly what the City fans like to see.
All of these games we probably would have lost in previous seasons.
At this stage of the season it's more important that we get the results rather than the performance. So it's imperative we take advantage of the position we're in and continue putting pressure on the other teams around us by grinding out these results.
With Leeds and Charlton hitting a bad patch it can only be demoralizing for them when they see we have scored a last minute winner.
I wonder if boards are putting too much pressure on the players due to what the finances of getting out of this league would mean to the long term survival of their clubs or are the fans expectations being placed too high after all there are never really any easy games in football anymore.
I was disappointed to read the comments made by Jamie Cureton as he left the club last week.
For a player who once said he was yellow and green through and through to then make comments like he should have been given more time on the pitch, well Jamie I ask you, did we see the same comments from the Doc and Lappin when they were in the same position as you were?
No, they just got on with it, worked harder and showed they deserved their place in the team. From a player that was not even hitting the barn let alone the barn door. How do you expect to get picked when we have two of the leagues top scorers in our team.
