This new manager needs to come quick
at 08:05 16 Dec 2021

The club needs a lift. Ashton better be working his @rse off to get this done soon. He's had best part of 2 weeks now.

We can't have this drag on much longer. The mood around the club is so low.

On the face of Phil's story this whole recruitment process looks slightly shambolic.

Sack Cook with seemingly no succession plan. Then we're left with the most uninspiring pool of managers you could hope for. Anyone else concerned?

Not sure there's an obvious candidate out there so will throw a few names out there.

Ryan Lowe
Michael Appleton
Karl Robinson
Neil Warnock
Frank Lampard (unlikely I know but wouldn't be surprised if Americans look fo box office name)

Probably won't end up being any of those but I guess their names will be on the list.

A few observations from a rare visit to Portman Road
at 17:39 28 Nov 2021

Wow we were poor. Can't see us going on a run of form to get us in the playoffs.

Aluko was a class above with his use of the ball bu god help us if Morsy is supposed to be too good for this league. Evans not any better.

If Crewe had more potency up front we would have lost that game.

What's Piggot done to annoy PC?

Still a good day out and not yet in the PC out camp but we're miles off where we need to be. Choice of beer in Beatties could be improved.
Matchday - Proof of vaccination and ticket
at 14:36 26 Nov 2021

Hi guys

It's my first game at PR for 18+ months on Sunday. May be silly question but do you know if the turnstiles accept NHS app as proof of vaccination or do they need it to be printed? Assume they can scan the barcode of the tickets on the phone as well rather than having to print them off?

Remaining games

Surely now PC has to go with players who will be here next year.

No point with the likes of Judge, Sears, Ward or any of the loanees any more. Could maybe add Chambers, Skuse and Edwards to that list too.

Something like this going forward..

Is he injured or just out of favour? Haven't seen his name in the 23's and he's not featured recently. Had such high hopes for him. Maybe he needs a loan spell at the start of next season.
at 08:42 20 Mar 2021

Thinking about our current squad, not sure why we've been wedded to 4-3-3/4-2-3-1 all season. We have a real lack of decent wide forwards and we're not really blessed with strikers who can play up top on their own. Surely going back to 2 up top would be more suitable?

KVY Chambo Woolf Wilson Kenlock
Bishop Dozell Judge
Norwood Jackson

KVY is interchangeable with Mattheson and Parrott could also play in a 2 up top I'm sure. Plenty of options at number 10 for Judge's role and lots of centre backs to choose from.

Team for Sat
at 10:56 17 Mar 2021

Mattheson Chambers Wilson Ward
Bishop Judge
Lankaster Norwood Bennetts

I feel like we might see a few changes on Saturday. The full backs need freshing up. Don't think he'll drop Chambers though so maybe he'll move inside.

Central midfield looking very bare without Downes and Nolan.

12 points behind 2nd
at 20:50 9 Feb 2021

And played a game extra. To be potentially 15 points behind the automatic spots is indefensible.
Transfer news. Bad sign re lambert?
at 12:28 29 Jan 2021

I might be wrong but would be unusual to sanction any transfer business if you're about to sack the manager. Hopefully ME is gona give him the boot shortly after Crewe!
Danny Cowley
at 10:56 29 Nov 2020

Just feels like the right guy to me. Still young and on the up rather than a manager on the merry go round. Knows League 1 well and adept at getting a team playing more than the sum of its parts. Local links too. Could be the right man for the club for the next 5+ years rather than another plaster over the cracks.
Next four games
at 07:35 25 Nov 2020

Wow, we really could lose all 4. May pick up a point or two. He really needs to be sacked asap
Do we need to wait to the end of the season to sack him
at 15:59 7 Nov 2020

Papering over the cracks
at 17:03 31 Oct 2020

It's becoming to look a lot like last season. Getting away with poor performances against teams in the bottom half. Cue losses at Sunderland and Hull.

I know I shouldn't be depressed when we've won but seems like we're just delaying the inevitable.
Let's not over react but..
at 17:06 24 Oct 2020

There's very little chance of us getting promoted this season and on the last 2 perfomances I would think there are 6 better sides than us in the league.

Not sure what the point is sticking with Lambert.
Keep checking on here hoping that he's gone.
at 08:00 4 Mar 2020

What's the consensus though? For some reason I just can't see Evans sacking him. This season is finished but it's next season I really worry about. Continue with this manager, group of players and mentality and we will end up fighting relegation. We need a totally new approach.
Staying in contention
at 09:35 3 Feb 2020

On the face of it we really need to be winning at least 5 out of the next 9 if we're to stay in touch of the top 2. Can anyone seeing it happening? I certainly cant.
Team for tomorrow
at 12:38 31 Jan 2020

Edwards Chambo Wilson Woolfy Garbutt
Skuse Downes Judge
Jackson Norwood

Can't see any changes to the back 5. Norwood has to come in for me, him and Jackson are the best combination. Skuse narrowly over Nolan for me.
Norwood for Keane tonight
at 17:40 28 Jan 2020

That would be the one change I'd go for tonight. Not sure whether Keane will be able to sustain 2 games in quick succession yet and think Norwood will be champing at the bit after being benched for a few games.

Keane doesn't strike me as a very physical player either, even given his size. Think Norwood relishes that side of the game.
