Lambert: 300 Games For One Club is a Brilliant Achievement
Friday, 30th Nov 2018 12:54
Manager Paul Lambert has paid tribute to skipper Luke Chambers who will play his 300th game for Town on Saturday, coincidentally against his previous club Nottingham Forest.
“To play 300 games for one club is a brilliant achievement,” Lambert told iFollow Ipswich. “Not many players in the modern game stay for that length of time at a club and make that number of appearances.
“It shows his consistency and I can’t give him a bigger compliment than say that you know what you are going to get out of him every week.
“He has the respect of everyone at the club and rightly so. He’s a humble guy and that has stood him in good stead. He is very steady in his temperament and that is a major part of being a footballer.
“We have a young group of players here and they look to him as well. I’m delighted to have him here. He’s been excellent for me.”
Chambers, 33, who was signed on a Bosman free transfer by Paul Jewell in 2012, has made the second most appearances among those currently playing in the Championship, 434 for the Blues and Forest, behind only his former City Ground team-mate Lee Camp, these days with Birmingham, on 465. Town midfielder Cole Skuse is third on 412.

My first season following Town was 2002/03, just after relegation from the Premier League and in full of optimism for a quick return.
It's Not R*********, It's the Promise of an Adventure by BaltachaFanClub
Let’s be totally honest, we’ve not had a good year. I know that’s an understatement and come August we begin in a league we haven’t played in for the majority of most readers’ lives.
Reasons for Relegation by rickw
This week has seen several newspapers print their stories on Ipswich's demise giving their simplistic reason on what's gone wrong.
If Stats Won Games: Small Victories by Kropotkin123
If you think the Premier League is over analysed with meaningless stats by meaningless contributors, have I got a treat for you! With six games to go and a 44% chance of relegation even if we win all six, my attention has turned to more realistic, less fruitful objectives.
