Someone needs to sort their bloody flag out though.
Worryingly for the Ipswich contingent of my timeline, we are behind their banner that has been hung in an amateurish way - no bottles of water to provide ballast and anchor the hang. Though the Norwich one is, to be fair, more shit. pic.twitter.com/4H0XKsvfHE
I've enjoyed plenty of away matches this season but I think Saturday was the best for a number of reasons - the day as a whole, coming from behind, finishing a good week to get the season back on track. Just one of those matches that I'm glad I was there for.
What else come close in recent years? Swansea probably although I wasn't at that one. The 0-4 at Reading was fun but it was an end of season, slightly freakish result.
- Millwall 4-3 2017 - Watford 2015 - Brighton 2014 (Smith & Murphy) and Dec 2015 - Derby in 2013 (Edwards late winner)
Conditions were awful, parts of the pitch was sodden at times and we were playing a decent League One side in better form than us. And yet we controlled the midfield, conceded few chances and created decent opportunities. The only real criticism would be not getting more shots away.
But we look more like a team again rather than the disjointed bunch of players against Gillingham less than a fortnight ago. The belief and intensity is back up and, especially given conditions, that was a good point.
It's been a long time since the last one, and that was my first day aback at work after three weeks in Australia.
One win doesn't solve everything of course but the infusion in confidence after the first goal was good to see. It wasn't just that though the tempo was right from the start, the support - a slightly smaller crowd - was positive almost throughout.
Lambert has always had it within him to turn things round on the pitch, mainly by not over-thinking and over-analysing. That has lead to the recent heavy rotation and subsequent incoherence. Hopefully we can build on that this week and it will turn out that December is a better time to have a poor run than March and April.
