O'Neill: Lambert a Part of the Club's Plans Going Forward
at 16:15:47

I'm not sure who is more irrelevant O'Neil or Lambert. If Wolfy and others sold then next season's excuse becomes player sales and squad in transition. Surely with Lambert on a 5 year deal we are stuck with him for at least 2 more seasons and sadly that almost certainly means more of the same dross we've had since day one. What a shame that Evans doesn't have enough ambition for our club to replace a manager who has done no better than Hurst on the pitch but won a few PR battles with stuff like beer vouchers and past hero dinners unlike Hurst who seemed over confident and just a dog with different fleas. For our on pitch fortunes to change we need to roll the dice again.

Blues Lining Up Millwall Striker Elliott as Bialkowski Move Could Be Revived
at 07:19:33

Millwall outplayed us on this one and held their nerve on offloading unwanted player rather than cash. All that said Norwood plays off scraps so we need 2 up top or it's gonna be more difficult to get the best out of Norwood

Lambert: Judge Has Indicated He'd Like the Opportunity
at 00:00:59

Probably puts me in a group of one but genuinely not bothered. Over hyped in my opinion. How many games has he bossed it since he arrived ? In truth was given too much freedom much of the time and left us out of shape when he deserted his flank going on a free role.

Bart you absolute legend. Knudsen dreadful. Bishop just gets better and nearly back to his best. Skuse and Edwards just ineffectual. Lambert just not good enough at this level to make any difference.

Lambert Hits Back at Farke's Staff 'Lack of Class' Claim
at 16:21:47

Looked like a diversion tactic to me. Lambert was the only person pushing and shoving and the tackle from Nolan was awful. Lambert no doubt delighted everyone talking out the hand bags rather than the scoreline

at 16:10:04

Lambert and Hurst both got 9 league points with Lambert having 2 games extra under his belt. Only difference is Lambert has won over some of the fan base with great PR.

Hurst: Leeds Knew We Were Switching System
at 11:26:09

At all levels managers lose good players they would of preferred to keep but they still manage to win more than 1 in 15. Some might he was unlucky not to have won more and they might be right but if you saw the Swansea game we won we could of lost be 5 or 6. I'd be surprised if his next appointment is with a championship club.

Marcus Evans Needs Our Support Not to Be Hounded Out
at 15:16:21

A lot of nonsense is spoken about Evans on both sides of the argument.

He has actually said the club is up for sale but at the right price which is his right. Our losses reduce his tax liability they don't eliminate it so lets expel that myth. He does have to put money into the club each season and isnt raking off transfer fees so lets eliminate that myth too. He keeps a low profile but thats better than some show off who just wants constant media attention. Calling Evans a ticket tout on this site is not helpful and that just shouldn't happen. Keep that sort of talk for the pub but don't put it on here as just gives Phil a headache he doesn't need.

On the flip side Evans has told us himself that he knew little about Ipswich when he bought us which is less than ideal for me and I'd prefer an owner from the local community. The ground is looking tired and needs investment. The current squad isn't fit for purpose. Home crowds have been on steady decline under Evans. There is much to criticise about his ownership and apparent lack of ownership but our budget is well documented to be about average for the championship so its wrong to say that we are bottom of the table for financial reasons. Evans doesn't have anything to do with transfer policy other than doing the deal and he doesn't train the players or pick the match day squad.

Lots of us hated the McCarthy style of football and demanded change. Lots of us thought Hurst was the answer. I was in both camps. Lots of you but not me are thrilled with Lambert so why is Evans to blame for any of the team management and squad performance.

For me the sooner Evans sells the better but while he remains lets get our facts right. He is a very wealthy guy who bought us expecting to make a (quick) profit. It hasn't worked out for him or us but in the meantime lets be fair about what he has done wrong as in some respects he has been very unlucky as I thought Roy Keane was a really ambitious appointment at the time and although I never wanted hoof ball Mick there is no doubt he was another 'big' name.

Now we are in a total mess and league 1 beckons. The budget takes a 10 million hit ( from memory) at that level so more challenges lie ahead but I remember the Bobby Robson side being dismantled to fund the debts from ground development so the truth is there always has been a budget and there always will be therefore its not so much a new owner we need but a gifted manager who outperforms his budget
