The truth is that if Klopp or Guadiola tell their keepers to lump the ball forward we will all be doing it within a short period of time.

Hurd mentality!

Does not gain anything apart from increasing possession stats. And we all know possession does not win games.

Goalkeepers should just do that, keep goal. Lump it forward every time keeper.

Probably yes. Everything’s analysed to death, so if a team has the players capable of hitting certain success rates of playing out, it’ll be preferable to a long clearance with a higher chance of losing possession. After all, you can’t score if you haven’t got the ball. Mistakes playing out are relatively rare.

I think it works if you have the players to do it and not be paranoid about it mix it up and make sure their is enough midfield movement . So i suppose the next question should be have we at Ipswich got those players who can make it a success ?

Agreed. This playing out from the back is just trendy now because Liverpool do it and Man C do it, doesnt mean the rest of the clubs have to follow. Our players arnt good enough to do it. Play to your strength, not what is the trend.

On a serious note - yes it is if you have good enough players to do it. Goals conceded from this type of approach will always stand out and the benefits, especially as the benefits are less tangible. However keeping possession at the very top level does allow you to dictate the game, tire the opposition and ultimately prevent them scoring if you’re keeping the ball from them

However if you haven’t got the talent to do it it’s pretty worthless - there’s not much point risking it at the back if you’re not good enough to move it further up the field too and asking a League One CB to play intricate passes is just asking for trouble

As an aside, one thing I’ve noticed in the PL since football has resumed in empty stadiums is the number of goals conceded in these circumstances seems to have increased massively. Not sure if that’s a training ground type feel to matches with defenders getting sloppy or more teams trying to play this way - but it’s certainly not working in some cases!

And to be fair, Arsenal look better now than they have been for a while. Liverpool have been better for the past 2 years than they have been for a long time. Man City have had enormous success since Pep went in there and set them playing this way. Mistakes will happen, but you have to mitigate that risk by having the right players who are comfortable in the system. I don't think Town the side we've seen this season is all that comfortable on the ball at the back. Speaking of Pep, the first thing he did was drop Joe Hart as he saw the need for a footballing goalkeeper. It's all very well having a way of playing but you need to have the players to execute it. We're smoking crack if we think Holy, Wilson, Toto and Kenlock will be popping around anyone half decent at this level.

I think also all fixtures aren't born equal. There's nothing wrong with having options and alternative approaches. At home to Gillingham, why not? If we're at Peterborough or Hull then perhaps we can take a more pragmatic approach. It doesn't have to be a 1 size fits all.

I hope Lambert takes the opportunity to make changes for tomorrow and get towards a first XI. He's been right to stick with a winning team despite it not, on paper, appearing to be the preferred one.

I think we have got the players to do it, the issue is they're not the ones on the pitch at the moment.

It does also pose the question is it wise to almost exclusively adopt this approach when a considerable chunk of the squad is ill equipped to do it successfully?

I'd much rather see the players capable of keeping the ball do so and those who aren't, stick to what they do best. As you say, mix it up.

Opens up space. Pulls the oppo forwards and therefore the midfield forward. If the other team know you're going to lump it long, they can all get in their own half

I said they play it because they have the players to do it. We clearly don't after watching us completely fcku it up against Doncaster. I didn't say they hadn't a clue. I was saying we don't have a clue how to play that system.

But we've won 5 out of 7 games this season. Granted it went wrong on Tuesday, but why are people so quick to forget where playing out from the back has got us so far?

I think it's because it's obvious when it goes wrong, whereas the benefits of playing out from the back are more subtle and felt over the course of the game.

In an ideal world (for me) yes we should. And a coaching team with that mentality and approach. We nearly had it when Brendan Rodgers was about to join as Keane's assistant (although I'm not sure how that clash of styles would have played out).

Approaches work though. I was quite happy with Burley's slightly more direct approach - it was still strongly based around good movement and passing.

Yes, when we have played weaker teams. The moment we play a half decent team our keeper and defence look like they are juggling a hot potato. I dont personally think we have the right personal to play this system.
