|Terrell Thomas caught my eye last night|

Centre half, thought he played really well for Wimbledon.
Him and Eoghan O'Connell (Rochdale) are two centre halves that have caught my eye so far.

Our most naturally gifted number 10 and he is out on loan, meanwhile we are playing Huws/Skuse/Downes in front of a back 5 away at Wimbledon.
No disrespect to them by the way, all very good footballers but aren't the creative spark we need, all do very similar jobs and don't need 3 in the same team v Wimbledon.

Forget your comedy clubs come and watch Ipswich.
Absolute sh*t show, 9th if other teams win their games in hand. 9th-12th is realistically where we belong.
State of this club
|Time to move away from the 3-5-2 for good?|

I'm not sure Lambert genuinely knows how to implement it?
I'm actually not too sure what, if anything is being coached during the week at the moment but that is a different thread altogether.
I think if we go the Sunderland with the same back 3 that lack so much pace we will get ripped apart again. Any team that is dynamic and creative in attack can easily get in behind Chambers/Wilson/Woolfenden as they play a stupidly high line for the pace they have (as seen first goal - Dembele).
As I have said before, my preferred formation is a 4-2-3-1, the most balanced formation in football imo.
Starting XI has to included our dynamic options :
Donacien - Chambers - Woolfenden - Garbutt
------------------Downes - Huws---------------------
-----Edwards------- - Dobra --------- Sears -------
|Lowest day as a Town fan for myself...|

Battered, and truly battered by P'boro at home in League 1, 4-1. It hasn't been as low for myself.
It is so difficult to support Lambert after a week at Rotherham and P'boro. Think you've turned a corner but it's just horrendous.
But the f*cking players hold just as much accountability for me, they don't give a sh*t, turn up, have a knock about and a laugh with their mates, take the cheque and feck off again. They get it easy at Ipswich, and it was Paul Hurst who said that. I'll tell you now, the only man to come here and upset the applecart was Paul Hurst, but that sh*t needs to be done. Absolute easy troll here.
Evans, in a realistic world, I don't want fortunes pumped into the club on wasted talent like Jay Emmanuel-Thomas and Chopra.
But when you have talent for example like KVY (500k) but we turned him down for free, Sammie Szmodics (Free) and Frankie Kent (£350k) 10 minutes up the road at Col U (just an example), and they go elsewhere, is that unrealistic to expect £350k etc on up and coming talent out of the realms of realism.
I'd give him to end of the season, but we won't go up, no where near good enough. And I have supported Lambert and Town up and down the country, but when we don't make promotion, he has to leave for me. A totally fresh start, rip this f*cking squad apart.

Fecking waste of my time.
It’s almost impossible to be that bad, the technique of the Town players was inexcusable! You play like that you will never, ever deserve to win a football match no matter the level.
A bad day at the office, on to Saturday.

Really enjoyable game to watch first and foremost. Really think this system is something we can settle and build a full squad around in the coming years, very much in the Sheffield United mould of things.
Thought first half we really dominated the ball, controlled the game and opened a few half chances, thought Lincoln looked quite sharp on the break, however, having seen them at home in Cup they didn’t look half the danger they did that day and that is credit to all the players and staff.
Before the goal I don’t have a fear in the back of my head it was going to be a day on domination with no reward, but when we went 1-0 up we never truly looked like we were going to throw it away which is another progression sign as it is something we have done for years.
Thought the squad was outstanding to each man. Shining performances for me were the back 3, again superb, 2 better players flanking a no nonsense rock in Wilson. What another great bit of business by Lambert.
Quick mention for Keane and Jackson, the amount of work rate the front 2 (whoever it may be) have to get through in a 3-5-2 to press the full backs to stop them doubling up on the sides is incredible and the every striker we have (inc Norwood and Sears) is a really good fit to execute that.
On to the big one Tuesday. COYB!!
PS: Lambert must burn some calories on that touch line!! He fecking loves this club.
