    'Useless' Lawson to stay Pak coach: PCB

    Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ejaz Butt described national team coach Geoff Lawson as "useless" on Monday but said the Australian would see out his two-year contract.

    "Lawson is a useless man. But there is no use removing him now and we will allow him to complete his contract which will not be renewed," Butt told his first news conference in Lahore.

    I've never been a great fan of Lawson. But this really doesnt help Pakistan cricket a bit.

    What a **** comment to make about someone. Seriously, that's a rubbish statement to make publicly given they appointed him in the 1st place and the team's hardly played at all.

    And FWIW, even if they had been playing and losing everything, it's still a **** comment to make about someone publicly.

    Disappointing comments for mine. Geoff Lawson hasn't done much wrong, but with so much going on with Pakistan and their political climate, it's not his fault.

    Duh, Cricinfo says he's going to lose his job in Apr 09.

    It is terrible really to wash dirty linen in the public. Now, who would want to coach Pakistan with this kind of a Board at the top? BCCI, for all the controversies during Greg Chappell's tenure, did a much better job.

    He's not Pakistani, he's the obvious scapegoat for all their ills. Even then this is low but not surprising.

    Hope Geoffy walks out and commentates for Fox again. Those were better and simpler times.

    Hmmm, the comments seem to have changed from "he's useless" to "we have no utility for him."

    Think someone was being naughty somehwere along the way.

    Pakistani cricket is in such a sad state right now. Growing up, from a cricketing point of view, I never thought I'd be better off as an Indian fan than a Pakistani one, but here we are.

    okk.. why he has to say it publically? couldn't he just let him know that in April 2009 when his contract was expired?

    The level of incompetence by the PCB has reached new heights, which I didn't think was possible. Why would any self-respecting man, foreign or local, take up the Pakistani post now? With a complete **** this new Chairman is, yes even more so than the last one! If he was not satisfied with Lawson, then he should fire him right away. If he's worried about financial implications, then ride out the contract and don't announce to the world that your coach is "useless" and you plan to fire him. How can you expect anything out of Lawson now? What kind of an impact would this have in the dressing room with a lame-duck coach who's been publicly insulted by the new boss? What does this say about your ****ty leadership Mr. Chairman? You are a ****ing joke, just like Pakistan cricket. It is unbearable to be a Pakistani cricket fan right now.

    Expecting a press conference stating "I didn't mean that, my remarks were completely taken out of context"

    Well he does get paid $30,000 a month. I'd take a punt. I'd go there, and sit down and suck up to the board. The team would keep losing, but I'd keep a cushy job.

    If I was Lawson I would tell them to get ****** and tell him to coach the team. Tell him (Ejaz Butt) to do an honest days work for once in his life, not that he would know anything about it.
