Ipswich Town Hall of Fame
at 16:05 5 Aug 2020

Was just wondering how certain former players are selected for our Hall of Fame?

Just seems a bit odd that Hermann Hreidarsson and Jason de Vos are there but Marcus Stewart and Jim Magilton aren't. Obviously not meant as a slight on the first two, but if they have been inducted, why not Magilton and Stewart?

Also, no Tom Garneys despite being our fourth-highest goalscorer, ahead of Mariner, Whymark, Gates, Brazil...?

I will add that I'm glad ours isn't like Norwich's, where you simply have to turn up and play a few games and that seems to be worthy of a place.

Paul Lambert

is not a very good football manager.
Does anybody here really believe that we might get promoted next season?

I mean, truthfully?
Lambert out. (n/t)

Bloody hell, BBC Look East is so Norwich-centric

Not the happy-to-participate football club but the city and area itself.

Not exactly a revelation here, I know. Just irritating.

Favourite Joy Division track?

Those who like Joy Division, which songs are your favourites?

Very difficult for me to pick one, but I feel I should post at least one of them:

Just watched some of the Spurs-Leicester highlights and found Guy Mowbray's voice to, again, be a bit of an annoyance. He can come across a tad shouty at times.

Of those presently commentating, which do you like and dislike the most? And past commentators?

I'd say I like Steve Wilson the most out of the current BBC TV lot.
TWTD Questionnaire Question No. 55

"How would you rate manager Paul Lambert's performance during 2019/20?"

24% of respondents did not select either "Poor" or "Very poor". Surely they cannot all be Norwich fans? Honestly, who on Earth could answer that question and seriously say that he was anything other than "Poor" or "Very poor"? 215 people thought he was "Average".

Best Ipswich Town moments of the 2019/20 season
at 17:19 14 Jul 2020

I don't really want to dwell too much on the pathetic campaign that was the season just gone, but was just trying to think of the best moments for us?

- Downes' diving header against Shrewsbury after Vincent-Young and then Jackson powered down the wing

- KVY's solo goal against Tranmere (and Garbutt's free-kick in the same game)

- The relief of Jackson's late winner at home to Wimbledon

- Holy's penalty save vs Wycombe

Any others?

Oxford vs Wycombe

Surely it would be better from our perspective for Oxford to go up? Would see them as being more likely to challenge again in L1 next season. Not that we're particularly likely to do so ourselves.
It is sobering how low our ambitions as a club really are.

"When it was put to him that it was more than just the final few months, the record of four league wins in 21 stretched back to November, O’Neill responded: “I think at the end of January though we were top of the league. You can look at it and you might pick up a point away from home and people deem that as not a good result but at the end of the day the league table doesn’t lie, if you’re in and around it, you’re performing well."

I know we read so much into every word uttered by everybody in football, but it's just depressing to hear him come out and say that we were "performing well". We weren't. With a competent manager last season we would be playing back in the Championship in 2020/21. As it was, we recorded our lowest league finish for 67 years, finishing below Wycombe Wanderers, Fleetwood Town and Gillingham. If the season had been played to a conclusion we would've finished pretty much in the same spot.

O''Neill mentions how at the end of January we were (briefly) back at the top of the division but I think most of us recognise we didn't deserve to be there based on performances. The form over the MAJORITY of the season was a disgrace and would see us in a serious relegation battle if it was to be replicated next season.

I know I'm not exactly saying anything new here. It would just be nice for the club (O'Neill) to not pussyfoot around and actually acknowledge how utterly shïte most of last season was. Regardless of what has been said internally, if he and some of the players are coming out publicly with things like that and mentions of how it "wasn't good enough" and how we'll "put it right next year" it just comes across as us being content with failure, frankly. As it has done for a fair while now.
