Burton Albion 0-1 Ipswich Town - Match Report
at 17:40:29

Three observations: 1) Our results with Holy in goal are far far better - does he organise the defence better? This season and last it’s noticeable that our results dipped (even if performances before were poor) when we dropped him. 2) despite their detractors Chambers And Nsiala earned us that 3 points today - real bodies on the line defending 3) yet again, performance improves when we have 2 up front. Get Hawkins and Norwood in the same team and we might yet have a chance

Gibbs Already on Premier League Radar as Town Offer New Deal
at 09:50:01

Hope he doesn't go, but if he did and we got a Charlie Brown level fee for him it wouldn't be terrible - its such a gamble with youngsters, and more often than not they do not they don't push through. I remember when Dean Bowditch was the outstanding player of his group - despite all the chances it never really happened for him. I suspect the £650k we got for Brown was a good deal for everyone but City. ..

McCarthy Sacked By APOEL
at 11:47:47

Elguaj4 that comment says more about you than the comments. There is only two comments above that refer to MM’s time at Town, one pointing out his success record with generating a surplus from transfers (you disagree?) and the other suggesting he ‘failed’. And from that you deduce brown nosing? Personally I think we’d have been in a far better league position had he stayed, but similarly at the time felt that the level of entertainment was poor and we were stagnating as a club- and was glad to see the back of him. I hoped Evans would get it right with the next appt. In hindsight I was wrong, and I’m not afraid to admit it. But I’m not going to come on here just to slag off my fellow fans - seriously, what are you trying to achieve with that? We need unity and positivity now...

Town Linked With Tyke Thomas
at 08:52:43

Ryan Fraser? Celina? Lawrence? Arguably Garbutt. Not a massive fan of loans, and these were largely McCarthy signings - but I’m not sure you can say we haven’t loaned a successful wide player for 20 years.

Town: Fitness Coach Henry Now in Consultancy Role
at 16:42:49

IpswichMouse, I thought we had got rid of the 'makes good business because it reduces his tax liability' claims... I hate what Marcus Evans has done to our club, and I wish he wasn't our owner, but the idea he benefits from running up losses doesn't make sense. What it means is that the losses he makes with us can be set against other business interests, so it doesn't hurt him so much - but it still loses him money. Its all in the form of debt owed by the club of course, but I cant see that he can ever recover that debt. So from his perspective it would be far better that we were a Brentford, a Millwall, a Luton - using our comparably limited resources to punch above our weight, maximising the value of our assets when selling them - essentially doing all the things we haven't done. Essentially his tenure has been a complete car crash - giving the wrong managers money to spend, and making a series of bad appointments. He's run this 'business' appallingly. Obviously that doesn't take away from the fact that we now need his money to prop us up, and as much as I wish another owner could be found, I do wonder who would be nuts enough to purchase us.

Ward: Everyone's Disappointed, the Lads Are Hurting in There
at 12:05:22

Its the polar opposite of McCarthy-era Town. Then we were the team that would surrender possession and make every game competitive - which meant we very rarely get turned over, and often won ugly. Of course that %s style of footie also meant that we often struggled to beat 'smaller' clubs too, and were going nowhere in the Championship. Now we're trying to play attractive football, dominating possession (albeit at a lower level) but just aren't very good at it.... Difficult to see how Lambert gets us out of the division at the moment.

Ipswich Town 2-3 Portsmouth - Match Report

Whatever the debate about VAR, you don't find Prem games being ruined by stonewall bad decisions every week. I know there are marginal decisions which feel unjust, but that's a bit different to what's happening to us right now. Compare Mnoga's challenge today vs Dozell's earlier in the week - seriously...

Lambert: Oli's Been Really Good For Us
at 16:24:39

I like the way he handles himself. For a long time this club made a habit of signing the right characters, not just players with great technique- Ramsey, Robson excelled at that - Burley learned from the latter. The right team spirit is vital if we're going to get out of this division.

Premier League Clubs Agree £50m Rescue Package for Leagues One and Two
at 23:08:24

Big Picture was clearly about self-interest of the Big 6, but the fact remains it was the only suggestion that anyone has made that would have seen a major chunk of the Premier TV money go to EFL clubs. And removing Parachute Payments would have made a dramatic benefit to competition. The £50m is a sticking plaster over a gaping wound. Without serious reform of financing in the game the Premier League will become a closed shop. Just our luck that we happened to last be in it the season before the big money arrived. Difficult to see why the Premier clubs would ever vote for making the pyramid more competitive though - hence why it has to be part of something which has an element of self-interest for some of the bigger clubs. Yes, Big Picture was a stitch up to consolidate power for the Big 6 - but realistically we (and all other EFL clubs) were never going to challenge them. The impact for us would have been a far greater chance of at least getting to the top tier again. That seems more remote than ever now.

Ward Still a Doubt for Blackpool Visit
at 10:39:11

I suspect you're right MMT and similarly worry we are going to fail to get a result. Kenlock is not up to standard, and its worrying that Lambert does not see that - suspect defensively, and offers little going forward. Would rather see Donacien there.

Ipswich Town 2-0 Gillingham - Match Report
at 11:44:05

Get the point that Cornell played well tonight, but it felt to me last season went wrong when we dropped Holy. Would much rather we keep a settled defence - and key to that is the keeper, and the organisation he brings. So far this season we've only conceded one goal - and for all the flaps last Saturday Holy did pull out a couple of very decent saves.

Premier League Offering EFL Clubs Grant of Less Than £50m
at 14:30:14

As others have said, Parish and Dyche making comparisons with 'business' is completely false. Unlike normal 'business', without the 'competitors' there is no football in this country. And Palace and Burnley just got lucky to be in the Prem when it became so bloated with cash that it created a chasm in English football. If we had been in the Premier League just 1 year later we'd have got parachute payments, wouldn't have had to flog our team for a song, probably wouldn't have turned to Evans...Christ, the whole thing is so skewed that to claim it is like a competitive business environment is a complete joke...

Edwards is simply being played in the position we bought him for! Amazing what that does to a players form (!) - similarly amazing how keeping a winning side together breeds consistency....almost like what 90% have been saying for the last year...

Boro and Luton Linked With Edwards
at 13:41:21

Actually one of our better performers over the past two years, despite constantly being played out of position. Don't forget that 18 months ago he was being touted for the Welsh national squad. Factor in the wage cut and we'd need to get £1m to make it worth selling.

We need a solid left-back. Edwards is decent attacking midfielder wasted out of position, and Kenlock just isn't up to it (average defensively, offers nothing going forward). Yes please!
