strangely enough, Cook also goes to Liverpool games with his mrs. So you'd assume he might know him personally

"He has been a weight dragging us under the water for way too long. I know he didn't mean to and he's not a bad man but his time is up."

I think that's spot on!

yes, quite right. Of course, that's the benefit... these new prospective owners will only make money (on the club side of things) providing they turn our fortunes around on the pitch.

But I do have something in the back of my head reminding me that we could have 3 or 4 years of improvement, but at what long term cost? The pitfalls of being a town fan for 20+ years don't allow one to get to carried away

I know this won't be the first thread on this.. but I'm feeling, despite the exciting prospect of on-field improvements, a little bit uneasy about the thought of a takeover.

Whilst I acknowledge the fact that Evans has got so much wrong in his tenure as our owner, I genuinely believe he does have the best interests of Ipswich Town at heart and I don't worry for our future (at least financially!) whilst the club is in his hands.

What concerns me most is that if he sells to a consortium looking to make "quick money" a couple of years down the line, whether they would be so thorough and careful about who they would sell the club on to (of course, none of us know).

I guess it's a classic ITFC case of "Careful what you wish for"... based on the malaise of the past 14 years, can we dare to dream? We're certainly due a change of fortunes

The Cowleys
at 17:58 25 Jan 2021

Whilst respecting the superb job they did at Lincoln, I've never really been a fan of the Cowleys in terms of their style of football and also, to an extent, their personality. I'd argue they probably wouldn't have got Lincoln to where Michael Appleton has so quickly, though of course, we'll never know.

However, it was when watching Danny Cowley providing punditry on a Birmingham game and claiming "Yeah Jutkiewicz probably wanted that 'eader on the other side. We say footballers are right or left footed and I think he's the same with 'eaders" that really turned me off. Certainly wouldn't be my choice of next Ipswich manager!

Mick

When hearing Mick would shortly be announced as Cardiff's manager, one of my first thoughts was "wonder if he'll come back for any players"...

Apart from the fact there's almost nobody left from his time here, I can't think of anyone from our current squad that Cardiff would be interested in

Charlton

Just spoke to a Charlton supporting colleague who tells me they have 0 fit centre backs. They played with Chris Gunter and Darren Pratley there on Tuesday and are expected to have the same pairing tomorrow.

That, combined with our lack of midfield options, could make an "interesting" game...

I have to say, I do have concerns over the midfield. Huws is a must tonight, in my opinion

What do we think for tonight?

Personally, although I'd be frustrated whilst watching, I'd probably be more than happy to come away with a bad performance and a point in the bag - especially considering the players available for this one and the lengthy travel etc.

Can't see us getting a win, but would be a real statement of intent if we were to pick up 3 points

personally think much of the criticism has been way over the top. He's never going to be the best left back in the world, that's why he's a second choice in L1.

Having said that, I think he could easily be a starter and a solid player for a middle of the league side in this division and we're lucky to have him as deputy. It's a little too easy to criticise someone who's stepping in here and there for not being fully at it

For all the rubbish that's been said on here in the past week about a very able deputy we have at LB who, by the way, is one of our own he's barely put at foot wrong in that first half. Great to see him prove the doubters wrong

Even more impressive considering he's completely nullified Blackpools star man of the season in CJ Hamilton

seeming as I'm spending my working hours trawling through previous line ups of a second division Swedish side to see if our 3rd choice keeper is playing or not, I guess I need not reply

Just checked and Harry Wright is yet to make an appearance for GAIS. I wonder if he was signed for them as a back up keeper, as he's been on the bench for all their games since joining?

A good life experience nonetheless, though one may have hoped he may get some first team football (not to say he still won't)

Pros = no Brenner
Cons = strong Bristol accent and the promise of updates on the Weston-super-mare game...

Think I’d prefer Brenner

Lambert was not having Phil's questions this morning
at 12:29 14 Feb 2020

Perfectly good questions, well asked.

Ridiculous response. How can Lambert honestly say we don't have one of the biggest wage budgets in the league. Or suggest that it's not intrinsically linked. We have been using it as an excuse for being in the bottom half of the Championship for long enough, so why's it no longer relevant when it's the other way around.

Bottom line is that if Lambert does not get us up, he will have failed in his job. He should be relieved of his duties at the end of the season.

Real lack of creativity tonight... but then we played with 5 centre backs (Donacien included in that, according to Lamberts assessment) and 3 central midfielders.

What did we expect?
