Wycombe Wanderers 1-1 Ipswich Town- Match Report
at 18:48:56

What Wycombe have - and we largely lack - is teamwork and pace. I thought that, again, we look ponderous (or is it a misplaced arrogance?). You can see why PL couldn't cut it at Wycombe with his obsessions with hugeness and more rotation than a helicopter pilot. Ainsworth just gets his team playing enthusiastically to win for each other. I think we'll remain huge, dizzy and in League 1. I'd be more optimistic for Wycombe.

Ipswich Town 1-2 Coventry City - Match Report
at 09:18:38

This was the game when, with about 6000 others, I felt we properly arrived in League 1. Yes, it was a Cup match, but it epitomised the level we have reached. The crowd, the quality of the football, the helplessness of the manager all symbolise a provincial town club that had its glory but has found its place again. A very, very sad moment but strangely predictable - like a death really.

Wycombe Game Rescheduled
at 10:48:41

Perhaps the thinking is that, with a much bigger squad than Wycombe, two games near each other are much harder for them. Also, Wycombe are doing well currently, but are not predicted to keep up this same pace so that may be a better time to meet them. (Of course the same might turn out to be true of Town!)

Bolton Boss Departs Ahead of Town Visit
at 23:47:33

If money from the Premier was thrown at these clubs would it really help? Isn't their problem bad ownership? If these dodgy owners saw Premier money coming that would encourage, not discourage them. Bolton had plenty of access to parachute payments as they sank into this mess. The real answer is a much stricter fit and proper person test.

Lambert to Make Changes as AFC Wimbledon Visit Portman Road

Re Saturday: 'no suggestion the Town match is in similar danger'????
When a club is postponing its own matches and with no likelihood of their off-the-field situation improving by Saturday it seems obvious that situationally that match is in very great danger. Bolton certainly won't want to play it if they can avoid it without extra sanctions. They's expect to be in far better shape for a rearranged fixture later in the season.

Where Next?
at 23:04:42

I'm sorry, but this piece is just drivel. 'by my calculations we were one of the worst Second Division teams ever'. Well they were not very detailed calculations because a great many teams at the bottom of that division and its predecessors have had worse records. And arguably Bolton's record was essentially the same this season. The column is just negative hype. 'Some people think we should be aiming for the top two'. Er - what else should we be aiming for? I imagine that everyone at the club, among the fans and looking on from other clubs is certain we are aiming for the top two, whether or not we achieve it. The political analogy is especially stupid as Farage is a model of success, like him or loath him, and constantly used here as an analogy of failure. My suggestion is that the writer of this piece takes a break for the summer. And possibly the winter too.

McCarthy: I Hope Fans That Hounded Me Out Enjoy the Sexy Football in League One
at 17:03:24

Those who agree with MM on here are missing the point about his remarks - a true professional with class simply wouldn't make them at all, let alone a year on after a disappointing relegation. Will Hurst do the same? He could, but I doubt it. It tells you everything that, while MM may possibly have kept us up this season, most of us are still glad he went - that is something he should feel personally ashamed about. Better to fail and be rid of him.

Lambert: Until It's Mathematically Impossible You Never Give In
at 22:43:45

Mathematically we can still reach the play offs if we can improve our GD in relation to Bristol City (though every other club will have to arrange its results to stay below 54 points . . .). I'm surprised PL didn't spot that one. Better still, if (!) we're in the bottom three before the final game and three clubs go into liquidation there's every likelihood we'll get a reprieve. Then there's the possibility of World War 3 and the season being abandoned. There is still so much hope if you are delusional enough.

Lambert: One We've Got to Win
at 15:58:40

Arrrgggh! Did I just read 'a must win game'? If so, please accept that if we (when we) don't win you promise not to use this nonsense cliche until next season? Thanks.
We have 12 games left. If we average 2 points per game (e.g. 6 wins 6 draws) we will get a total that would only have kept us up once in the last four seasons. We really need 30 points more (lol) which means 10 wins out of 12. Now I'm off to take my unicorn for a walk.

Expectations of Paul Lambert's Ipswich
at 15:55:07

This blog looks out of date already. The 'elephant' in your room is a dead elephant and needs to be cut up and removed before it starts to smell.
Alternatively, do not drive on the A140 which is, terrible to disclose, connected to both Ipswich and Norwich.

Millwall 3-0 Ipswich Town - Match Report
at 17:49:43

Contrary to some posts on here, I imagine Lambert is quite pleased. This was the game that exposed us as the worst team in the Championship (and not just one of the poorer teams with low morale). If he achieves anything he will have achieved something. He can move on with some dignity, like a doctor who has done their best for a dying patient. Our problem is different. We love the dying patient.

Lambert to Be Confirmed Town Boss in Next 48 Hours
at 01:08:48

Whereas Hurst was a gamble that might have paid off but he proved a failure at this level, Lambert has a track record and it isn't good. He knits together hardworking teams and cares little about owners, fans or clubs. He's a team coach, and moderate at that, not a club manager and this is going to end in tears.

Favourites for Relegation
at 17:38:04

I agree with most of what is written here. I think it was well time for MM to go, that PH was a good shout but looks to be heading for failure. Where I differ is that I think it is much braver to keep him on and give him room to rescue his own reputation than bring in another MM for a one season rescue. Nobody is more incentivised to sort the mess out than PH and to a great extent if we go down then so does his managerial career. He may learn quickly. In our mess there is no incomer who is likely to turn us into world-beaters and we cannot, at this stage, attract anyone whose own reputation would go down if we do so he probably wouldn't care too much but just take the check (digitally speaking).
