Accrington Stanley 1-0 Ipswich Town - Match Report
at 22:58:48

Northstandveteran is spot on; ME bought the club (took on it's debt), appointed Keane and threw sackfuls of money at him expecting a quick payback with instant promotion to the Premier League. Keane was disastrous - sold the club's promising youngsters (Rhodes, Garvan, Haynes) for a pittance, paid big money for mediocre players, and dismantled the youth structure. ME got his fingers burnt and has been miserly with the cash ever since. We are still suffering from the legacy of Keane.

Lambert: We Got Caught Up With the Emotion of the Game
at 20:21:28

Classof81 I believe that Lambert has a better right back in Donacien. He's no world beater, but I believe he looked competent under Hurst, far more so than the hapless Spence.

Lambert Has Handed Evans List of January Targets
at 19:12:22

Given our current situation it makes sense that January signings are loan deals. The type of player we'll need for next season will differ depending on whether we're plying our trade in the Championship or in League One.

Loanee Graham Training With Oxford and Set for Town Exit
at 21:10:28

Fortunately, it hasn't taken PL long to work out which of the two Jordans is worth his salt (Roberts) and which is a waste of time (Graham).
I agree with DJ27, Donacien in the right back position hasn't looked out of place. Along with Chalobah, Edwards, Pennington and Edun, these make up only five players that Hurst has signed that have been fit to wear the shirt.

Millwall 3-0 Ipswich Town - Match Report
at 18:35:37

Obviously Evans and Hurst must take a huge amount of responsibility for this hideous mess. However, I believe Roy Keane is also culpable. When he was appointed, Evans threw a stack of money his way in an attempt to get us promoted, but failed miserably. This served to burn Evans' fingers and he has acted in a relatively miserly way ever since, denying any of his subsequent managers the funds to build a squad that could consistently challenge for promotion. Keane was also responsible for weakening the structure of the club, as well as selling many of our most promising younger players for relatively small transfer fees. This should not be forgotten.
If Lambert keeps us in the Championship this season, he may well deserve a statue outside the ground.

Blues Linked With Renewed Tilt Interest
at 19:12:39

I believe that we're well loaded with players from lower leagues, I would prefer to bring in Cameron Carter-Vickers again. Also, how about Gareth McAuley? Ok, he's 38 years old but he was a regular Premier League player up until less than a year ago. He could be a useful squad player, bring experience to the dressing room and - as a free agent - wouldn't use up any of our loan allocation.

Double Signing From Shrews Confirmed
at 13:50:03

It's all looking promising.
Not too fussed about bringing Tilt in. Reckon that Woolfenden is well capable of stepping up, so along with Chambers, Nsiala, Knudsen and Spence we're well covered in the CB positions. Hurst obviously also feels that Donacien can play centrally as well, and I always think that Josh Emmanuel is built like a centre back.

Evans: New Manager Unlikely Before End of Season
at 10:31:31

I don't know that this appointment is any more, or less, important than Evans' last two, given the league positions the club were in at those points.
Steijn or Paul Tisdale of Exeter City are top of my wish list.

Updated: McCarthy’s Future to Be Clarified "Well in Advance" of Early Bird Deadline

If the club changed the manager they wouldn't need to drop prices to sell season tickets. I fear that this is a sign that McCarthy will be here next season.

Cardiff and Birmingham Linked With McGoldrick

Football is a business/sport that defies all logic. It seems highly possible that David McGoldrick will leave the club this month and bring in less money than Keiffer Moore.

Milne: Massive Rebuilding Over the Summer
at 13:04:29

Perhaps the launch of the new kit has been delayed as talks to sell the club are at an advanced stage and a new owner certainly wouldn't retain ME's shirt sponsorship. Such unprecedented uncertainty at the club - manager's position and so many players' futures up in the air - would back up this theory. A new owner, manager and playing squad along with plans to relocate and build a new stadium on the old sugar beet factory site would be the ideal way of consigning this most forgettable of eras to the dustbin.
I guess I'm living in dreamtime but clutching at straws can sometimes help you to remain sane.

Leeds Midfielder Close to Joining Blues on Loan
at 18:03:55

In the 4 years that Mick has been at the club, how many players has he signed that another club has wanted? Without trawling through the full list, I can only think of Webster, Sears and Wordsworth (not counting non league signings eg Mings, Moore). The rest have been loans, free transfers, free agents or players bought that haven't been able to make the first team elsewhere. Diagouraga is another unwanted journeyman.
