|Colchester United 1-0 Ipswich Town - Match Report|
Yes it’s a good learning curve for the youngsters and also good for the the fringe players to get some game time. However we have lost the opportunity over the past two cup games to seriously build some momentum which could carry us through to the end of the season and beyond.
Also we all know Paul Lambert has brought the club together again to great effect but the patience of the supporters will be tested if we have a repeat of the past couple of games. 2600+ at Col U last night was a tremendous turnout but I would imagine we won’t be seeing that number anymore unless we field our best available teams. I certainly won’t be attending cup games again unless there is a rethink.
|Oxford Postponement Confirmed|
I can understand the reasoning for calling the game off and I am not agreeing or disagreeing with the decision. However, although we are top of the table and doing very well I just feel our season hasn’t got going at all. At least that’s how I see it.
It is very disappointing to have so many blank Saturdays. It is crazy that we are into November and have only played four Saturday home games!
|Smith Training at Playford Road - But Only to Stay Fit|
Good to hear that Tommy has done well since he left us. Clearly still has the club at heart and as others have said would do a good job for us even now.
Was never the most natural of talents and there was always a mistake waiting to happen but he fought hard to do his very best for us.
Wish him the very best wherever his path takes him.
|O'Neill: We're Constantly Looking at and Evaluating the Squad|
I guess investment in the January window could hinge on whether or not our long term injured people will play again this season.
The worry for me is Kane Vincent-Young as I am not convinced he will return quickly. That being the case we will need a new face.
|Ferguson: We Might Be Top Had Town and Wycombe Not Played Bolton's Youth Team|
Is this another manager trying to wind up more successful managers than himself? Remember what happened to Evans and Barton when they tried similar.....they both got some teethmarks in their backsides and also had to consume large portions of humble pie.
I am sure Dad Ferguson didn’t need to resort to such ridiculous comments during his wonderfully successful career!
|Sections of Ground Closed for FA Cup Tie|
I know I will get shot down but I agree with others who are unhappy with this. People like me who sit in the Sir Alf Upper sit there for a reason, that being because that is where I like to watch my football from.
Why do the club block that opportunity for a cup game? Yes I know there is stewarding costs etc but those costs are not going to outweigh keeping supporters happy. I know of a few others who sit near me who shall not be buying tickets now based on this.
|Wilson Signs New Contract|
Good news. A no nonsense reliable defender who just does what it says on the tin. It Must help him to concentrate now that his immediate future has been sorted.
|Lambert: I Said We'd Have Bumps and Bruises Along the Way|
We all want the best for our club but we must look at the proverbial glass as being half full not half empty. Paul Lambert says the right things and long may it continue. We all have different opinions and views on who should be playing and in what formation. That’s the beauty of the game but we must let our Manager do what he believes to be the right thing and support him with it.
Every team will have a sticky patch but good teams always quickly get through it.
Hopefully when all our players are back to being as near as possible to 100% fit then we will be fine.
|Ipswich Town 0-2 Rotherham United - Match Report|
Dreadful performance but don’t want to dwell on the past. Southend is now a massive game as it could shape our season.
If we don’t win this one I fear our evidently fragile mindset and confidence will get significantly worse. This includes supporters as well as players. If we do win then we can easily start another good run.
Either way I hope the fans stick with Manager and Team. So much good work has been achieved by Paul Lambert and Co over the past twelve months so please don’t let two back to back defeats detract from that. I was as disappointed as anyone this evening but I didn’t and never would boo my team!
|Lambert: The Good Teams Always Bounce Back|
Rotherham is an important game and one we must win to ensure self-doubt doesn’t creep in.
Indeed good teams do bounce back so we won’t have to wait long to find out.
|Accrington Stanley 2-0 Ipswich Town - Match Report|
Nothing to be alarmed about and I am sure just a blip in what has been a great start to the season.
Stanley deserved the win today. We just didn’t build up a head of steam at all.
Hopefully normal service will be resumed against Rotherham and I just think it will.
|Lambert Dismisses New Contract Talks Claim But Has Spoken to O'Neill About Wilson|
Paul Lambert is evidently a very professional Manager who goes about his duties admirably.
I am sure he will always play down speculation and rightly so. That said I do hope we can secure his services for longer than the length of his current contract. It is difficult to quantify the positive impact he has had at Portman Road since his arrival but it has been immense.
|Wilson: I'd Love to Stay at Town|
Would like to see his contract extended for sure. Basically we need to keep all of our squad for the remainder of the season at least. They have done very well so far so why change anything?
