The trouble is we've not got a natural goal scorer to partner Keane. Thought Edwards made a difference and would now pick him to start in say 5 man midfield. It does look like the new defensive line up works so just need to find a way to score more than two goals and keep the ball. Thought Chalobah made too many mistakes and may now need a rest.
|Norwich City v Ipswich Town Your Report added at 16:43:25|
The big problem fro Lambert is finding how his team can score. Neither Keane nor Quaner have a history of scoring many so after losing Morris Folami Lankaster we're really only left with Freddie. But he needs a big guy alongside so unless Quaner can fill the role there isn't anyone.
Thought our midfield did well but Skuse days are numbered, too often he just punted upfield in hope! Would love to have Chalobar next season but that's unlikely.. However Bish now has chance to grab role of play-maker with Nolan and would like to keep Judge as he could be big player in L1.

encouraging performance against a good side. Super goal from EH and very solid from our CBs but still would like to see MP at RB with new left CB signed/loaned. Once again our full backs lacked quality as there was so much space for them.
Thought Nolan worked very hard and was always available but while Dozzy tried he needs more time so hope PL finds someone to strengthen midfield.

the horrendous weather was as much to blame for the poor game. It was bad enough in SBR stand!
Some players deserved praise namely Chambo/Pennington for holding out under pressure, Freddie for his goal and efforts in chasing lost causes and Gerks for keeping the sheet clean.
I hope Pl doesn't perservere with Roberts at CF as looked completely out of touch and missed so many chances that could have made a difference.
Trouble with playing a poor side like Wigan is that the the game doesn't flow so hoping next week we'll up our game and surprise the Blades.

Thought Chambers was immense both as captain and has become a better player than under previous managers.
Bart - still not happy with his distribution otherwise did all he could
Spence - had his good moments but sadly lacking in ball skills/passing
Knudsen - had his work cut out and some good bits
Pennington - good all round but for me not imposing enough at CB, would be better at RB
Skuse - ok but lacks drive and energy
Downes - getting better every game but needs more attacking mids around him
Shalobah - he's very determined and while some mistakes he makes up with energy and skill
Edwards - has gone backwards and was marked out of the game
Roberts - disappointing but has proved he can't be lone striker, better on left wing as provider
Sears - whole-hearted again but needs ball on pitch or part of 442
Bishop - muddle with Edwards led to their second but hope he can start soon as we need his skills
Lancaster - very nearly scored in last seconds with super delivery so expect him to be given more time
Jackson - took goal well and would work well as part of two up front

Much better all round and thought some players took the opportunity to show they want to play for PL.
Pluses were definitely Roberts Sears Pennington Chambo and Rowe looked ready for 1st team. The rest played their part and looked to take new orders very well.
However, we need a forward who can score as I have no confidence in
Jackson. Maybe one of the youngsters will step up.
|Millwall v Ipswich Town Your Report added at 20:34:04|
It as a game that we should be winning but it showed what a v poor squad Hurst had put together.
It would be difficult to find any pluses apart from the fans. For me Downes stood out but so young to take on so much!
Bart - did ok but very exposed by poor defending
Ward - very poor, bad crosses
Chambers - badly needs tall left CB but did his best to rally side
Pennington - tired very hard but gets out -jumped
Knudsen - just rubbish, apart from throws
Skuse - he's too slow and cannot create, should have taken control but passed backwards or nowhere
Dozzel - tried but found it difficult
Downes - MOM was everywhere and showed quality
Chalobah - not a CB but at least tried to open them up and showed that he's a midfeilder with attacking skills
Sears - whole hearted but poor support, needs a Murphy type with him
Jackson - out of his depth, just runs and runs but not much else
Spence - less said the better
Edwards - too late to make a difference
Antone who thinks that Hurst should have stayed would've thought differently after this. Millwall were nothing special but once they realised we were no threat they played with more confidence and goals would come and they did.
Lambert has a huge task but glad he saw with his own eyes what he's up against . Maybe some non contract signings will give temporary relief but he's going to do well in January to avoid the drop,
|Ipswich Town v Middlesbrough Your Report added at 08:47:34|
Hurst still doesn't realise that his signings are worse than the players that have benn loaned out. He persists with one striker when it's clear that two are best. In the post match interview he was never challenged about his constant changes and why he loaned out better players than he's using. It's no wonder that Garner etc wanted to go faced with the prospect of playing for him.
We need Warburton to sort it out or even Burley but somehow I doubt anything will change until it's too late!
|Ipswich Town v Bolton Wanderers Your Report added at 22:40:45|
Very poor with team looking like EFL 1/2 level. I feel sorry for Chambers trying to pull the team together only to see them giving the ball away. I bet he wished he was elsewhere!
I don't understand why having sold our best PH thought he could replace them with League 1/2 players. Plus he's got shot of youth when in reality they probably would do better. And then he signs loans that are well below the standard that are needed. To think we had Fraser Townsend Laurence bringing mush needed quality but PH has resorted to last minute loans that add nothing.
Bring back Wolfy Morris Emmanual Nydam et al so at least we'll be cheering our own. They can't do any worse!!
|Ipswich Town v Norwich City Your Report added at 12:58:09|
Too many passes went astray at critical times. Plus crosses/corners were too high with attackers little chance of converting.
Walters was great as was Chambo and Pennington. Hope Huws and Bish are back soon as PHs recent recruits look below par.
Cant understand why Rowe wasn't given a run as Graham well short of match fitness and ward offers no threat. Hope he plays well for U23s as do others to add more competition for places.
|Derby County v Ipswich Town Your Report added at 22:52:26|
Still don't think that playing one up front works. Harrison isn't good enough so time for Morris to step up. Plus we only need one holding mid so if neither Huws nor Bish is ready we definitely need an attacking mid to help Nolan
|Ipswich Town v Aston Villa Your Report added at 10:18:27|
fantastic atmosphere and great performance by the Team. Although thought Skuse did well harrying their players and got in some good tackles, his passing was poor with quick flicks giving the ball away when a more measured pass was needed to keep possession.
|Ipswich Town v Aston Villa Your Report added at 19:50:59|
We've got some very average players that will need to be weeded out out by new manager. Thought jk was mom for us and showed that he's better at centre half. Celina very poor so shan't miss him and doubt he'll have many takers in UK.
|Ipswich Town v Aston Villa Your Report added at 20:39:57|
I've been promoting Ben for months so pleased he got his chance today. Thank goodness Mick picked a more attacking formation (at Last) but that was his trouble playing for draws! Millwall showed what can be done with no money but the right Manager.
But why can't our players hold the ball instead of kicking it anywhere or giving it away? I liked that we tried to pass out from the back but you could tell that players weren't comfortable at times. looking forward to new manager who I hope will change it all for the better.
|Ipswich Town v Aston Villa Your Report added at 22:31:37|
Trouble with MM is that he doesn't have a style that can cope with poor teams like Burton. Passing was shocking, movement was painful and pace non existent. Apart from Celina and CCV the rest were shameful.
Ok Skuse breaks up play but what does he do then? And to think he's with us for two more years!
|Ipswich Town v Aston Villa Your Report added at 18:54:51|
Too good for us and showed that we've got many slow players who can't take opportunities when they came and went. McGoldrick looks disinterested and Garner is too short to play as lone striker with their tall defence. Once again MM lost chance to change game when subs were tried too late. Should've had young striker on bench instead of Sears, we'll never know how good they are if they're not given a chance.
|Ipswich Town v Aston Villa Your Report added at 08:46:19|
Can't believe it took their second goal to force Town to pass on the ground! I realise that Derby took their foot off but it showed that we can do it and don't need to rely on hoofs from Webster Jonas etc. Waggy was amazing , non stop performance that deserved a goal.
|Ipswich Town v Aston Villa Your Report added at 09:36:34|
What's going on! No ratings!!
Very poor game but after some decent performances expected more but MM decided otherwise. It would have been an ideal game to introduce McKendry but Mick decided to play Sears who's a shadow or his former self. Iorfa his usual game, can't head the ball, can't pass and can't take throw-ins. All in all a waste and should be sent back. I'm sure Emmanuel could've done better.
So sad that Bishop went off after showing glimpses of why he was rated so highly. Back soon I hope.
|Ipswich Town v Aston Villa Your Report added at 17:11:04|
Against teams like Reading Fulham who play a keep ball style it was clear from yesterday that Mick's plan worked. WE worked hard and closed them down so they didn't really hurt us. However with Connolly providing more pace and getting forward we pose a bigger threat. Waggy was everywhere and Garner made himself such a pain (good to see him nack). Spence had another good game but still feel that both Chambers and Webster are too keen on long passing when it would have been easier to keep it on the ground!
I thought our movement was better and there were clearly some signs that the team are varying their game and get a better understanding. Just hope Mick can apply the same approach away.
