lol this league is so great 21:48 - Sep 17 with 2653 viewschicoazul

We are playing quite poorly with random formations of players just sort of thrown together and keep winning. I love Division 3! We should have tried this years ago!

Words are a medium that reduces reality to abstraction for transmission to our reason, and in their power to corrode reality inevitably lurks the danger that the words will be corroded too. It might be more appropriate, in fact, to liken their action to excessive stomach fluids that digest and gradually eat away the stomach itself.

I have to admit that my assessment of the match reports concur with your assessment. As of yet we haven't played well at all. I read that we have good 10-15 minute spells now and again, but generally poor. Imagine what will happen if we found a system.

Not sure the random formations is entirely fair. We have shown far more consistency of both personnel and formation than Keane ever did.

I hate to think how we would have approached this league if we had done so under MM. I liked what MM did but I am not sure he would have gone for it in the way we seem to be. Maybe he would have, none of us know for sure.

If we don’t win this league by at least 10 points, then this season will be a failure.

Lambert doesn’t believe in system apparently, said so himself. Or rather said that players win games, not systems.

Which is a bit of a shame really because yes, imagine what some of these players could do in a clear, settled system.

Can’t argue with the points though. Massively important to bounce back after Donny.

I said that looking at our squad, Lambert would have to monumentally mess things up for us not to get promoted.

And whilst hes given it a good go at times, in reality our squad is just too good for a league where 15 odd teams are absolute trash

I'm not moaning but I hope we find a formation and stick to it.
I know theres still a long way to go but if we do go up I'd like us going up with a system and style set in stone so we hit the ground running back in the championship.
The first half performance would be fine with me!

I am coming round to the idea that most of our players are simply a cut above everything else (pretty much) in this league so we won't see a set formation so much as opposed to Lambert picking the best players he has available and telling them to go out and play, especially in midfield.

99 points. 83 goals if we carry on at this rate.

Disappointing really, not the 100 points 100 goals we were after.

I've always thought that I enjoy just simply watching 'my team' just win and to go into every game expecting a win - no matter what league that's in.

Does beating the PL champions at home give more pleasure? I guess but that's all rather short lived - isn't it?

Uh, I think i'd rather Ipswich were playing the best teams in the country week in week out in the most watched, arguably best league in the world playing attractive attacking football and beating the champions as opposed to beating Mk Dons 1-0 away on a Tuesday Night.

I think for those going to games this season will be fun but let's not lose all ambition in one go and start saying we'd be happy to stay around here because we win more.

Maybe, but anything can happen in football and as fans we should be aiming as high as possible.

I didn't want to go in to League 1, i don't really believe in the 'reboot the club' theory. But I have to say I am enjoying this season more than at anytime in the last 10 years. Personally, I would take a few seasons of enjoyable football with a squad of players able to actually play some football and enjoy the game with us.

I fell out of love with the Premier League (and all that it stands for) a few seasons ago, and not just because we are no where near it either. Over analysed, over hyped and over priced.

Would love a cup run though.

It's funny you say that but we seem a bit Mick 2014/15 but without having to play against good teams.
