Lambert: Totally Deserved, We Dominated the Game
at 01:52:53

Well done all today
Especially those who were there
PL was right when he showed concern at the number of fixtures many months ago
Although deeply unpopular on here his rotation policy could yet proof wise
We now have many players who have had a fair chance to stake a claim to their shirt
Some have done that and others maybe not so much
We are third(despite a two month blip!)
We have players who have improved as the season has gone on
We also have players coming back in who know they have to perform
Look at Huws for example
Proper quality
Teddy, Flynn Jackson and others all learning and improving rapidly
We're in a good place
All the players worth their salt will want to be part of the next chapter for ITFC
Upwards and onwards
Tranmere Rovers 1-2 Ipswich Town - Match Report
at 17:27:45

Agree 100% dirty
But in that run of tough looking fixtures other teams can worry more about us than we will about them
If we play our A game we can beat anyone in this division
Nice to read positivity on here
Lambert: If They Want to Go and Employ Another Manager, No Problem
at 19:57:39

I do feel for PL even though many on here don't
We all want to win (apart from those who will always want MM back) and some feel a divine right to success
It must be hard to be obliged to attend those inane press conferences with ridiculous questions that he gets every few days
He's wastes dozens of hours of his life on that and that comes through if you read between the lines

I feel that one of his problems is that his best team doesn't pick itself and thats down to the players
I,m not sure his best spine of the team even picks itself(on merit)
None of them stand out week in week out
Most of them flatter to deceive and although PL praises them every week I feel they all have a bit more to offer to help him and the team
Maybe it's a byproduct of searching for "gems" in the lower leagues and developing our own
I,m not sure

But one thing I am certain of is that if you can't make their keeper pull off a save or even throw his cap on one then you won't win a game and the good work done will be undone and gates will slide back to where they were

Please prove me wrong PL and ME and invest in a shot at goal!

zero shots on target............zzzzz
Holy: I Need to Do Much Better Than I Did on Sunday
at 20:01:19

I also had him down as the one who played ok!?
Dose not say much for the rest of them I'm afraid
Can't change that now so take it on the chin and move on
Important to make sure it was a blip not a reality check
Need a strong reaction Wednesday
Town Look to Bounce Back From First Defeat as Rotherham Visit
at 19:52:43

This will be a good test for us
Rotherham absolutely battered us in the second half last year (I was behind our goal in the front row and it was unbelievable how we kept a clean sheet)
I thought then this could be the turning point for our club
We'd finally showed some steel so hopefully that spirit will see us through this seasons challenges
It's all about how you deal with disappointment much like life
Wark: Just Like One of Mine!
at 08:19:29

What a player Walk was
Flynn has learnt a lot from playing alongside Skuse
But he could learn a lot more from a chat with the great man and that goal had his stamp on it
A nightmere to defend against and helps your strikers so much to have another angle of attack
I'm lucky enough to still remember "he's here he"s there he's every....."
Thanks PL for giving us our club back
Debutant Norwood Partnered By Jackson as Blues Start League One Season at Burton

We're off and running!!
Bolton Wanderers 1-2 Ipswich Town - Match Report
at 12:05:18

Congratulations to those 1452 who made the journey yesterday
I hope you one day get to say "I was there when we finally turned the corner"
Bolton Wanderers has been a pivotal fixture before!
That I believe is the first time this season we've actually won and been undoubtably the better side
Although we can't get carried away by beating the mighty Bolton I do sense the tiny green shoots of recovery are and will bear fruit soon
Thanks to PL and his team along with BK etc the foundations are stronger than they has been for years at our club and they deserve this rare victory as much as anyone
Hopefully if we can retain the youngsters who buy into the long term strategy because they feel it will make them the best they can be then the future could well be bright
I know the ME haters will shoot me down but I see a shrewd man there who I hope will invest more when there is something worth investing in and PL is going to build that on good foundations
To believe in that we'll have to gloss over last weeks debacle!!!

Collins, Bishop, Emmanuel, Quaner and Dozzell Start at Bolton

Thanks Saxonblue
You live and learn hopefully
A little gallows humour makes this season pass more easily

Lambert Praise for Academy Kids
at 11:49:42

I agree with most on here thankfully
It's ironic and I have to pinch myself sometimes because this is the worst league position we've been in my memory and yet I'm loving seeing our own young players cope and develop with each week
Some on here threw in the towel in and mocked those who were critical of "anti-football"tactics(hoof it as far away from our goal as possible and fight like hell)
Well to transform the club from that where the youth teams were pointless to this stage where it must be great to have the potential to work up to the top rather than being blocked by proper blokes(stoppers who can't actually play but can disrupt the opposition)
Thanks Paul
I last felt like this when Joe Royle was here
The old ethos had to be dismantled in order to rise back higher
Kind of like Ajax used to play the same from under 8 to first team
I could of course be wrong
We all know you don't win anything with kids!!!
We all know you don't win anything with kids
West Bromwich Albion 1-1 Ipswich Town - Match Report
at 17:23:55

Well done lads
A performance to be proud of
Some will say too little too late but when you're at rock bottom life is tough and luck goes against you
Let's hope this time next year we can look back to today as a turning point(we all need something)
Players coming of age or proving to us/PL and most importantly deep down themselves that they can perform at this level

Town Return to Four at the Back at West Brom
at 14:48:24

Hats off to those who are there
Town Return to Four at the Back at West Brom
at 14:47:20

Kind of sums up our problems at that end
One striker whos hold up play is neat and tidy but can't or wont strike
The other can't hold it up or score unfortunately although I agree he hasn't had a run of games to be fair
He is our player however
Lambert Wants Chambers as His Skipper Next Season
at 22:45:24

Luke Chambers has been a good servant to this club both on and off the field but the legs have gone or are going IMO and that won't change next season
I'd like to thank him for all he has done and retain him as either club captain(non playing) or mentor for those coming through and help him get his coaching badges
I think his best position over the next couple of years would be alongside PL in the dugout
I'd hope he could organise our defence better from there than he has this season
Someone he respects needs to tell him his time has come
I don't want to see him try a season too many as some have done
If he wants to try Chicago then I would say thanks and good luck
Kenlock Pleased to Get His Chance After Early Frustration
at 23:06:21

For me it's very hard for a young defender to come into a team with the losing habit so I,d cut him some slack
The back four should play as a team within a team,always covering each other so if one makes a mistake or gets caught out of position someone else can help out
Our back four look like four individual rabbits in the headlights hoping it,s not their fault for the next inevitable goal
We compensate for a lack of pace organisation and positional sense at the heart of our defence by having two carers(defensive midfielders) to protect them
This leaves our proper midfield(ie the ones who occupy the midfield) outnumbered and when they do have some success there is nobody fit in the squad who whos primary focus is on sticking it in the net!!!
Possession football and most of what PL has brought are far better than before but they count for little if you can,t score or defend
We played some terrible football at times even in our one good season but Murphy kept banging it in which papered over a lot of cracks
It would take a lot of pressure off the likes of Kenlock etc if there was confidence at the other end of the field
Although Saturday was an all time low for me I'm still hopeful we'll turn the corner soon so COYB
