|Still no assistant manager announced |

What do we think about this? Either we're talking to Hunt and he'll come in soon, or we might be negotiating with Wigan about when Leam Richardson can join. Would take both of course.

From drawing 0-0 to Northampton, worst performance we’ve ever seen, 11th in the table, no sign of Evans and Lambert leaving, no hope for the future of the club.
Now we’ve beaten two top 6 sides, Lambert sacked, American takeover imminent, a couple of points off playoffs, Paul Cook likely to come in, life is a dream.

Current caretaker manager of Wigan and was Paul Cook’s assistant there. Do we think that our possible future owners would be able to pay a ‘release clause’ to get him back with Paul?
|Looks like the puzzle pieces are coming together for this takeover.|

So on Saturday someone Tweeted this, saying an American consortium was looking to buy us, employing a championship CEO. Looked like just another rumour at the time, but something to be exited about.
Following that, news emerges from Bristol which suggests the consortium wants Mark Ashton, current CEO of Bristol City. This is backed up by the fact that he held talks in America in 2019 about a potential deal with a consortium which never went over the line - perhaps they are trying to arrange a similar deal with us.
Finally today, just before the match, someone (somehow) discovered that American businessman and partner in Phoenix Rising football club, Brett Johnson, follows both Ipswich Town and Bristol on Twitter, perhaps providing the much needed connection between the two clubs. He employed Frank Yallop, and therefore perhaps took advice from him on which football club to invest in.
Obviously it’s still early days and there could be nothing to it, but it’s definitely something to be hopeful for in the near future - he progressed Phoenix Rising to the brink of the MLS so there’s no doubt we could go some way with him.

And we lose to Shrewsbury (both results the most likely outcome), then we'll be 11th / 12th in the table and SEVEN points off 6th.
Surely that will be it for Lambert? Evans has said he'll keep him while we're close to the playoffs, so he'll have no excuses. If not then we'll know Lambert won't be sacked till the end of the season at least.

Another setback or is he playing in an in-house match instead?
