|Blues Face Fine as Young XI Face Gills|
Why did Lambert play almost a full strength team against the Arsenal kids but has now gone to the other extreme? I'm fine with the first team regulars being rested but Huws, Jackson, Bennetts, Kenlock & Judge have all played very little if at all in the last few weeks & would have benefited from a game. I think a few older heads would also have benefited the kids that play otherwise it will just feel like an U23 game for them.
|Ipswich Town 0-0 Wycombe Wanderers - Match Report|
Tonight's match was originally scheduled for 12 October but was called off due to international call-ups. At that time we had just won 5 on the spin and we were 11 unbeaten. Oh yeah and KVY was consistently our best player. On to tonight and KVY is injured and our form has been patchy. But hey at least we could call upon our internationals Dozzell, Judge, Georgiou, Downes, El Mizouni & Dobra. How many of them played tonight? None. Just saying.
|Peterborough United 2-2 Ipswich Town - Match Report|
Fair result today. Solid start to the campaign given that we have played 3 of the better teams in the league. Full-backs are a real concern though. We've got Vincent -Young to come in at right back but I think we need a left back as well. Peterborough's left back Blake-Tracy looked a class above Kenlock and he was playing for Lowestoft a couple of years ago! Do we not have any scouts anymore?
|Warburton Moves on From Judge and Signs Pugh|
Sounds promising. However I'll still be holding my breath until the Championship transfer window shuts on 8th August. Don't think Lambert would have made public Judge's desire for the opportunity unless he thought the transfer was imminent but plenty of players have expressed a desire to leave but then performed well and been adored by the fans when the move has fallen through. De Gea to Real Madrid a few years ago is one that springs to mind. Judge's performance in 45 mins today with no pre season shows how crucial he will be to our promotion ambitions & I think whilst he may be disappointed not to get the opportunity (that could not be foreseen when he signed his contract in April) to work with a manager he is familiar with at a higher level, I get the feeling that he will put it behind him and be a key player in our promotion push. If we can keep him & he stays fit I guarantee he will make the league 1 team of the season. Let's hope that for once Evans looks at the bigger picture and stays strong.
|Nydam Facing Six Months Out|
Adeyemi, Huws, Dozzell, Bishop, Ward, Walters, Sears, Folami, Morris, Nydam. All have suffered serious long term injuries in the last 2 years. I can't believe any of the other 91 league clubs have suffered such wretched luck. Best wishes to all those who are still on the long road to recovery. Keep the faith folks - our luck must change soon.
