Lambert on Owner's Statement: Everyone Knows Where the Club is
Friday, 9th Aug 2019 11:48
Town boss Paul Lambert was keeping tight-lipped on the prospect of imminent new additions at this morning’s press conference where he also commented on owner Marcus Evans’s message to fans, which was released earlier in the week.
Asked whether there was any chance of a new arrival in the next couple of weeks, Lambert said: “You were probably told not to ask me questions like that, but it is what it is, you saw Marcus's statement, so we've got to go with what we've got in this moment, so let's see.”
Was he pleased to see Evans release his statement to clarify a few points, something Lambert had urged the owner to do at last week’s press conference, he added: “I'm pretty sure it's not any different from a lot of things he's said in years gone by. I think if you report it right and you listen to it, then people are informed about everything.
“The great thing is everyone knows where the club is, everyone knows the stance of the club, everyone knows the financial parameters of the club, and there shouldn't be any more questions asked on that side of things.
“But it is what it is, and it is where it is and I'm glad everyone knows exactly what's happening. The support of the football club is phenomenal, as I've said, it's unrivalled, so I'm pretty sure the fans were happy with what the owner said.”
He says the transfer window closing for Premier League and Championship clubs yesterday wasn’t too much of a relief in the end.
“It wasn't too hard that, it wasn't too difficult as such,” he reflected. “Now it's shut no one can really move, but it wasn't too difficult.”

All old news now. It's taken endless interviews to come to the conclusion....that we push for promotion on the cheap.
Something I knew to be the case last April.

All getting a bit tiresome now...succinctly put 'we're cash strapped'!

everyone knows where it should be as well !

“I'm pretty sure it's not any different from a lot of things he's said in years gone by".
Ha ha, you betcha Paul - new season, same sh!te.
At least there'll be a lovely shiny clean roof to look at in the North Stand tomorrow, that'll be a great comfort when I watch the team at their lowest level for 57 years.

That said your approach (which hasn't changed despite abject failure) is definitely working and we're all really happy. Thank you Marcus...
|MurcianITCC added 13:28 - Aug 9|
And thanks for another pointless and sarcastic post bluearmy81. I doubt many are happy at this position maybe just a little more realistic. If the owner won't spend his money that's his prerogative and all the bitching on a website he will never read will change that. I don't agree with it but it is what it is.
Looking at the positives, we have Norwood and Judge and some promising "kids" with us and I for one can't wait to be "home" tomorrow.

We already knew where the club is before Evans statement... We're in League One.
So just the 2 leagues away from where Evans said he envisioned us being when he first took over! Never mind the law of attraction, more like the law of retraction.

Our owner is still naive on football front. We all know it’s been ropey for over 10 years here. Us as supporters (me anyhow) will lub all of ITFC past and present 💕 💗 win lose or draw I know I’m a soppy git!
|Bluearmy_81 added 14:43 - Aug 9|
No worries Murcian. I'll keep at it until Evans is gone. I guess some have more passion, pride and fight in them than others...
|Bluearmy_81 added 14:47 - Aug 9|
. If the owner won't spend his money that's his prerogative
There's the problem. Up north and I'd say pretty much at any club bar Ipswich that fact would have fans baying for his blood. No one made him buy Ipswich and he has a responsibility and a duty to the club and the fans. I think it might be a feudal landowner hangover for you folks. You're a better serf than you are a fan if you can sit by and just accept someone killing the club.

Yes we all know where the club is - kin rock bottom !!! Still the only way is up hopefully.
|Dozzells_Bobblehat added 15:46 - Aug 9|
" I'm pretty sure the fans were happy with what the owner has said" . So in summary Lambert thinks it's reasonable and was asking M.E. to tell the fans.
So Bluebarmy81 not as you and your mates said a huge rift between the two.
|Bluearmy_81 added 16:04 - Aug 9|
Yeah everything's just great mate!! Woohoo. Keep gobbling. Will probably see some Norwich fans in the city centre in a bit, shame you're not up here you could have a friendly chat together about how much you all love Evans... 😂🤣
|Bluearmy_81 added 16:28 - Aug 9|
🤣Says the guy that changes my name to bluebarmy... Genius. No, barmy is backing an owner who's killing us
|Cheshire_Blue added 17:03 - Aug 9|
'more passion pride and fight' but little common sense.
|Bluearmy_81 added 17:17 - Aug 9|
That's just like... your opinion man... 😂
Debt from 30m to 90m with interest paid to him. Gates from 25k to 14k. Knocking on the door of the playoffs to third tier in 12 years. That's what you're backing. And you don't think I've got common sense?!! Football fans up here are staggered by you blind loyalty, they simply can't get their head around it in the face of such chronic and abject failure.
|Bluearmy_81 added 17:19 - Aug 9|
Just to n put things in some context, Everton fans were moaning (they do that a lot) yesterday about their transfer window!! And the good little serf sheep in Ipswich keep 🤫 when we don't spend a penny!! Yeah piss all.
|Saxonblue74 added 18:24 - Aug 9|
81, "Everton fans moan a lot"?! Priceless!!🤣🤣
|Bluearmy_81 added 18:37 - Aug 9|
They do saxon. Everton fans themselves will tell you that. Meanwhile in Ipswich where zero fees are spent investing in the squad... 🤫🤫🤫🤫
|Saxonblue74 added 18:38 - Aug 9|
Ok 81, let me put it another way pot and kettle, people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones etc etc!
|Dozzells_Bobblehat added 19:26 - Aug 9|
Why is it Bluearmy that when you're wrong you just ignore it and rant on about something else. Come on admit it that you were wrong when being all smug the other day about PL and ME
|MurcianITCC added 20:14 - Aug 9|
As I say the owner won't hear your keyboard warrior words...
If you want to make a stand, organize one. As we did during the dark days of Duncan.
I'm not convinced of your facts, I'm guessing you're guessing? Or do you follow Trumps lead and make facts up?
