The usual garbage from Lambert afterwards - eg: 'The Lads couldn't have given me more' A goal or two perhaps, Paul ??

For an incompetent head coach called Paul
The writing is now on the wall
He's steering us to
The depths of League Two
And soon we'll have no point at all !

Enough is enough. I agree with Timmy H - it's time ro get tough with Lambert, whose record is awful (at least with us) and appoint the Burley/Holland/Butcher team. To be lower in the table than teams like Fleetwood and Wycombe is a disgrace and a betrayal of a once-great club.

OK, we had a few chances, but for Lambert to claim that we dominated throughout is simply papering over the cracks. The stark reality is that we were playing a poor team which was fourth from bottom and that we haven't scored from open play in four games now. The midfield lacks any sort of genuine creativity. It's not just a question of money, though I have no respect for Evans. We once enjoyed great and loyal service and team spirit from players like Simon Milton, Micky Stockwell and James Scowcroft -quite apart from home-grown stars like Kieron Dyer, Titus Bramble, Darren Bent, Darren Ambrose, Richard Wright, etc., who cost us little or nothing. It's a question of good management. Lambert is so joyless and it shows in the way the team is now playing. For God's sake appoint a manager who looks as if he is enjoying the job.

I weep for the once-great club that once boasted Beattie, Mills, Butcher, Burley, Muhren, Holland and Wark. There is currently no leadership at any level and the brittle nature of the current team cannot be disguised by increasingly anodyne and cosmetic bluster from Lambert. Can anyone explain what O'Neill actually does ?

When fans leave in droves before the end, you know you're in deep doo-doo as a club , and not just on the pitch. Mu mind goes back to a 0-5 home defeat to Liverpool, but then we were playing a class team, not an average third tier side. I cannot forgive Evans for the club's total failure to bolster the team in the transfer window and I fear that our better young players will, as always, move on.

I agree with almost all the comments on a very poor show by Town. We are clearly far too fragile when faced with top six sides. One simply doesn't have any confidence that Town are going to string a series of wins together and anything short of a victory against Peterboro will be unacceptable. Why on earth can't Marcus Evans put in some really worthwhile investment in the almost ended transfer window ?

I'm getting heartily sick of the rubbish coming from the mouths of the management and coaching staff. They all talk a lot but never seem to accept any personal blame for this disgraceful winless run. What on earth does Lee O'Neill actually do as 'Director of Football Operations' ? I don't remember John Cobbold or Bobby Robson needing such help !!

One bright spot yesterday was the return of Teddy Bishop. All we need now is another ten like him.

Ipswich Town 0-0 Gillingham - Match Report
at 09:34:48

I would much rather be saying nice things but yet again disappointment is huge. A 0-0 draw at home in front of 22,000 fans is a disgrace, made worse by zero shots on target against a very average League One side. There is insufficient creativity from midfield, no punch up front and indecision all round. Give the kids a chance - they can't do worse, and what crime did Wilson commit to be left out so often ? Lambert's recent record of no wins in six and one win in twelve is appalling. Worse, he injects little or no spirit in the team. How were Gillingham allowed to dominate the first 25 minutes ? Yes, taxi for PL. Bring on Burley and Butcher.

PL's recent record with Town is no better than that of his toxic predecessors. He talks a good game but, at present, seems incapable of putting any fire into the bellies of his team. Oh for a player with the spirit of Richard 'Bam Bam' Naylor. Remember him in the 2000 Play Off final at Wembley? I am getting heartily sick of PL's bland post-match summaries. He never seems to admit that he is one of the problems.

I am increasingly depressed by the utter lack of momentum and spirit on the part of PL and the team at the moment. Given that Garbutt is scoring goals at the moment, is there a case for playing him up front ? The present 'strikers' can't hit a cow's backside with a banjo at present. As all fans are saying, stop this ridiculous rotation policy the elbow. And put some genuine zip into the team by giving players like Modra and Georgiou a real chance, instead of tired and uncreative figures like Skuse.

To be fair to Lambert and the team, only two defeats by mid-December is pretty good going and deserves some praise. BUT - as many other fans are saying - we're going nowhere if (a) we don't start playing for the full 90 minutes (b) if we don't drop this absurd policy of one up front (c) win some more home games,

Its about time that Norwood stopped posturing and whinging, and got on with doing what he's paid for. 5 bookings at this stage of the season is not helping his cause. Older fans might remember James Scowcroft, who generally go on with the game, contributed important goals, and didn't seem to pick up injuries too often. Norwood would do well to follow his example. Forwards who can't muster a shot on goal at home are about as usefu as an 8 quid note !!l

I agree with the majority here. Three observations. 1. For God's sake play more than one up front, especially at home. Lone strikers give the opposition encouragement. 2. Buy a striker who can stay fit for more than a week. 3. Find a team selection that IS capable of exerting pressure throughout the game. At present we look far too brittle for automatic promotion.

Can't complain about the result and there were some good individual performances, so well done PL and the lads. I still worry that we are not truly dominating games as a whole and it would be reassuring to see us really put teams to the sword. There is still a somewhat brittle look to the team at times. If we can up our game and put in good performances against Oxford and Wycombe, then I might really start to believe !

Good to see us plying with two strikers again. Add Georgiou to the starting line-up and we may begin to mount a genuine threat with some consistency (include Dobra in that when available)). We need a fit KVY. Nolan looks a better bet than most in midfield and deserves a run in the side, while Downes needs to calm down a bit and receive fewer yellow cards.

As the great New York Yankees catcher, Yogi Berra once said, 'It's déja vu all over again'. There are disturbing echoes of last season. Two successive defeats against mediocre sides simply is not good enough, especially for a club which can draw crowds of 20,000. For heaven's sake Mr Lambert, stop this silly rotation of players, get a settled formation and stick to it. Get a midfield sorted out that can put sustained pressure on the opposition. Only two or three shots on target when one has had 68 pet cent possession is pathetic, particularly at home.

I'm full of admiration for what Lambert has achieved so far, but this was a wake-up call. We should never be second best to a team that was in the bottom three !! Several things for Lambert to ponder. We have rarely, if ever, played with real intensity for the whole game this season. Too many times our match summaries refer to a 'poor first half'. Second, it is now clear that we need Downes, Wilson, Norwood, and KVY fit. Without them we look less effective. Third, our midfield is too lightweight in terms of exerting and maintaining pressure on the opposition. We need to be taking games to lowly teams, not allowing them to play above themselves, as on Sunday. Fourth, please abandon this absurd one up front system. It doesn't work for us or play to our strengths. Jackson is more effective with a partner.

Again a clean sheet and a creditable away performance. All praise to Lambert and the lads for another clean sheet. But, as I've stressed before. we must increase our dominance to the full 90 minutes ; get Norwood and KVY fit again, along with Sears and Keane; score from penalties ; get Norwood scoring from one-on-ones ; and give some opposing teams a real hiding, in order to increase our psychological edge over teams like Wycombe (we must, however, beware of man-mountain Akinfenwa)..

Again well done on a good scoreline, at least two fine goals and another three points. But we need to play well in both halves. We are too often shaded by the opposition over the first 45 minutes. More intensity over the game please. The fixtures against Fleetwood and Wycombe will require a higher level of pressure throughout and will show us where we really are. Having said all that, some fine squad members are emerging - Jamie Nolan, Jackson, Garbutt and the excellent KVY.
