Jon Nolan
at 14:08 16 Nov 2018

As I'm fed up of Brexit and 'Ipswich Town players as types of potato crisp duck legged obese giraffe testicles' I'm starting a Jon Nolan thread.

Do we think he can improve under Lambert? When I've seen him I see a tidy player that almost seemed scared to take a chance; safe balls galore. Had he reached his glass ceiling at Shrewsbury?

I've said before that I think he needs to add a little 'swagger' to his game. Chalobah, although not my favourite, has footballing swagger in abudance - almost too much at times. No one particualy stood out in Hurst's tenure apart from maybe Edwards. In less than a week Lambert has got Jordan Roberts doing reasonably well up top. Can he do something similar with Nolan in the midfield?

My God does that man run. I think he may be the hardest worker I've seen in a long time.

Napoli vs PSG

Really good second half. PSG look like they've taken a solid punch this second half. Napoli are playing such lovely football. Neymar isn't diving about either. Great game to watch.

Under 23's

Who's going to push through under Lambert? McLoughlin is a hopeful for me. Captain of the U23's as well?

Well that was a pleasure to watch from an Ipswich perspective. Quick movement along with quick sharp passing. Hull were poor but we were very, very good. I was writing stuff down during the game. Here's what I have:

Harry Wright - Not much to do but made a quality save to keep his clean sheet.

Josh Emmanuel - He's like Iorfa. Leggy and athletic. Today he was the good Iorfa which is a compliment.

Bailey Clements - A very calm, assured performance.

Emyr Huws - Never got out of third gear and never needed to. He has a certain quality where he offloads the ball at the perfect time. What I mean by this is the opposite player just starts to go to tackle and the balls gone. He always wants the ball.

Chris Smith - I think he's a really decent centre back. Very calm, reads the game well, passes to midfielders (!).

Corrie Nbada - Again, another good player. A loan move and I can see him being around the first team in the not too distant future. If him and Smith keep improving imagine them as a CB pairing in 4-5 years!

Jack Lankester - Hard worker with a trick or two. Caused loads of problems for Hull.

Idris El Mizouni - I thought he played really well. Quick passing and then he's gone and in space somewhere else. Don't know much about him but was impressed.

Ben Morris - Carries on scoring. Let's actually try to keep one of our hot striking prospects.

Danny Rowe - Good wing play and 3 (?) goals? Decent play and stuck some wicked crosses in. The only negative is that the short passing can sometimes be awry but that's a very small blight on an otherwise very good performance.

Shane McLoughlin - My MOTM. So good on the ball. His first touch allows him to play quick forward balls most of the time. He hit one ball in the second half where the defender had read it and went to cut it out... only Shane Put some 'swaz' on the ball so it curved the other way straight into the winger. It was a unseen little bit of quality. I've got 'forward thinking' written down next to his number and 'uses the ball very well'.

Ben Folami - Interestingly, I've wrote next to him, "Quality when he has no time'. When he's under pressure instinct kicks in and he produces quality. When he had time to think sometimes he dawdled a little. Improve the decision making and there's a quality player in there.

The other lads that came on looked busy, but the game was already won by that point.

I'm looking at our first team and that left wing spot is up for takes at the moment. Ward/Sears vs Rowe/Morris/Lankester/McLoughlin can play there (he's our John O'Shea). What a positive game though! Now, let's replicate that on Saturday!
