|Quick question...Where have all the Ellis Harrison flouncers gone?|
at 22:14 31 Aug 2019
The ones who were bleating after he had scored 2 goals in a league cup game. How many has he scored in the league?
Lambert clearly fancied Jackson over Harrison and that's looking a decent call. With Keane, Sears, Morris, Folami and Lankaster all on the books and some of those coming back from injury before the year is out I'm happy with what we have.
Never thought much of Harrison so wasn't bothered but certainly pleasantly surprised by the form of Jackson, him and Norwood could be our Bent/Kuqi (admittedly a slightly different level, but lets enjoy it).
Edit: How could I forget Keane!? If he can stay fit what a strike force we have with Sears to return.

|when the hell did Blackpool sign Kaikai??|
at 20:55 20 Aug 2019
He is a quality player :(
Blackpool back to 2-2 after being 2 down. Looks like they could be a team battling for the top 2 this season. Looks a very decent squad and started very well
|Big half for Lambert to show some tactical nous|
at 20:40 20 Aug 2019
Time for Paul to show he is manager who can take us forward and make some decisions and turn around this game.
Even if we lose i'm not going to flounce and starting saying we need to change manager but i expect to see some serious change in style of play, formation and effective substitutions this half.
If there is no change in tempo and we don't create anything doubts will begin to creep in which is disappointing as I so want Lambert to be the manager we crave. But this has not been good enough so far. It's only a half of football but we've not been exactly great this season although encouraging to be unbeaten at least. Tonight i was expecting to assert some authority on a limited L1 team and its really not happening...thus far anyway.
|Next 4 games points return?|
at 09:13 15 Aug 2019
So putting the disappointment of Tuesday behind us (performance more than result) what do we feel is an acceptable points return for the next 4 league games?
With 2 of these at home and one of the away games v Bolton personally I feel anything less than 8 or 9 points would be a poor return if we want to challenge the automatic promotion places.
Peterboro will be tricky and we could no doubt lose but the other 3 really should be amongst the most winnable games in this league.
A real opportunity to get the winning momentum we've not had for years. If we can't string a few wins together in the next few fixtures it could be come demoralizing for players and supporters alike.
|For anyone that is having a flounce over our pre-season results...|

2018 Walsall 2-0 Ajax
We all know the season Ajax went on to have.
Was it a morale boosting win that set Walsall up for their season in L1? Not really, as we know they got relegated!
The results mean little, the injuries are the concern.
|Sod it! ST in the bag....one more added to the target|
at 13:38 30 Apr 2019
I'm a lapsed ST ticket having not renewed since 2016 as I couldn't warrant doing 200 mile round trip to watch McCarthy's turgid football.
Now I haven't seen much to suggest anything is going to change next season in terms of being able to challenge for promotion and I probably won't be able to make at least 6 or 7 games but I love our club and I'm back on board.
|This back 4 cannot be our defence next season!!|
at 16:41 19 Apr 2019
If we play with this back 4 next season (a distinct possibility as all our own players) we will be no where near top half in L1.
We can't score, we can't defend and everyone says we'll keep most of our squad. Alarm bells are ringing big time!

|Rebuilding...but without Chambers please|
at 21:13 1 Jan 2019
I see all these posts about rebuilding for L1 and i agree this is the right thing to do now as we are as good as relegated. However so many posters seem to have Chambers in a team for next season.
I like Chambers and his passion but the guy is just a liability. He costs us so many goals, is a weakness in defense and now i also doubt his ability to galvanize a team down in the dumps. Is he really a good captain? Can he organise? i'm not sure anymore
His constant rallying cries never deliver. I think he'a a good guy but our defence has been shambolic for so long now and i think we need a complete re-build at the back and keeping him in it would be a mistake.
|Disappointed by the reaction of many to Lambert...I'm Happy if it is him|
at 22:35 25 Oct 2018
Fair enough if you have concerns over his managerial failures, but remember just about any experienced manager has failures on their CV. Any that hasn't won't be managing in the Championship, and one thing is clear we couldn't risk a young rookie manager again.
However the Norwich connection is irrelevant and people getting their knickers in a twist because he managed them need some perspective. This is a man with no Norfolk connection other than being there for a short time. He is not a budgie, and not like it was his last job and he's moving directly to us. Yes he was successful with them but he also left on a pretty sour note. Think how much it will upset them if he achieves success with us.
Remember Hurst appointment was met with overwhelming support of our fan base and look how that turned out. Don't see many criticizing Evans when he was appointed.
Please can we just give the guy a chance, our club is at it's lowest point possibly in its history, the fan base needs to help Lambert and hopefully he can revisit his past success's with us!
|I wouldn't be unhappy if Hurst was sacked next week.|
at 18:44 22 Sep 2018
No idea what his best team is.
I've said it for a few weeks now but he is overwhelmed and out of his depth...most of his signings are struggling or don't look like the required standard for this level.
I thought this season would be a struggle whoever the manager was but this is unacceptable. The team selections are bordering on farcical now and i'd say 90% of my support for Hurst has already evaporated, which is so disappointing because I was happy with the appointment although admittedly didn't know a huge amount other than his time with Shrewsbury.
Everything he has done is pretty uninspiring and think we are in big trouble with him as our manager, especially if rumours of unrest behind the scenes are true.
Probably as depressed i've been about Town since Jewell/Keane
|Well that line up/formation worked well|
at 20:23 18 Sep 2018
How the hell do we find two goals set up like this.
I so wanted this to work but we have appointed someone way out of their depth. This is not going to work, too much has changed, too much is wrong for this to be turned around. We are L1 bound. Sad.
|Goals? Just don't see any goals in this side at all...major problem!|
at 15:08 2 Sep 2018
I see a lot of posters stating that things will improve once players gel and we need to give it time. In part I agree but I just think we are going to be woefully short of goals and i think that's what could lead to us looking nervously over our shoulder at L1
Harrison and Jackson just look out of their depth. Jackson was hardly prolific in L2 last season a reasonable return sure but I should think 50% of his goals were just down to pace and not a lot else. That alone won't be enough in this division.
Look at Kiefer Moore, out of his depth in this division but scores for fun in L1, that shows the difference. We have sold goals, yes we may have had to sell those players but to not have bought a player who has scored goals at this level is very risky! Buying a lower league punt is usually a good plan when you have at least one proven striker on your books.
At least the signing of Walters may help, but relaying on a loan player of 34 years of age is all a bit depressing and smacks of...'oh crap this isn't going right, what can we do at the last minute to try fix this?'

|Brentford....what a terrific club...where we should be!?|
at 20:30 22 Aug 2018
Love what Brentford have done over the last 5 years. This is what we should be but are so far off them. It's sad because we shouldn't be behind clubs like Brentford, a side that has never been in the premier league. Have just consistently built themselves up.
Their manager was speaking so well on Talksport this moring, said they go into every game trying to win it, where as he knows many managers play not to get beaten especially away from home...hmm that sounds familiar!
Play such great attacking football too. Put Rotherhams to the sword opening day, a side we failed to even score against.
