Hey Oxford, I know you're looking. Here's the lineup

Collin Quidditch back in on a season-long loan deal I think yeah, £25,000 a week.

"Hence why he's been brought in"
at 20:00 30 Nov 2020

Or even worse "Hence that's why he's been brought in."

No, no, no.

"Hence he's been brought in" if you really want but why not just say: "That's why he's been brought in."

Have put in £20 to cover the next two matches as well. Would be surprised if he lasts beyond that, but who knows.

I'm pretty pessimistic as well

If Lambert isn't resigning he's committed to paying it anyway. The only question is whether he's willing to employ someone competent to run the football team or not.

If I were Evans I would be ordering Lambert to do a sit-down 1 hour live-streamed interview with Phil Ham to build bridges, and if he said no I'd try and dismiss him for breach of contract.

Did KVY have an operation on his achillies do you know?

He'd refuse and they'd have to pay up - he has a contract to be manager.

On a slightly related note, I liked PL's description of Huws' injury: "He's done his back and it's gone all the way down into his hamstring."

Think the diagnosis of KVY in pre-season was that the hard pitches were giving him a sore achillies.

Worst ever Town manager
at 11:00 30 Nov 2020

Absolutely, and Hurst was streets ahead at being sh*te in the transfer market, Lambert's transfer dealings have been OK, apart from the Collin Quaner transfer window which was bizarre.

Just think that the absolute nuts and bolts of being a football manager is consistently sending players onto the pitch with some kind of coherent gameplan, and the pile of evidence showing Lambert's inability to do this is definitely bigger than for any other ITFC manager in my time supporting the club (since Duncan).

Had Hurst got two years, suspect he could have been ahead, though.

at 10:41 30 Nov 2020

Hurst and Lambert have been terrible in quite opposite ways - Hurst focussed on coming across as an absolute tw*t from the get-go, being massively insecure and ridden with small-man syndrome, and completely out of his depth with higher quality players. He was determined to smash things up as much as possible in a couple of months.

Lambert on the other hand started out as everybody's mate, just wanted to get the feeling back, make it feel like a proper football team again, but he married that with utterly incomprehensible and awful tactics and team selections. He genuinely appears to have absolutely no idea why we play well or badly.

So for me, it has to be Lambert - he's just an utterly awful football manager; with Hurst we never truly found out how bad he could've been, because his personality meant he was out the door so quickly.

Wild guess but would think this is most likely scenario.

Value of ITFC
at 13:35 29 Nov 2020

The equation will completely change next year regarding this possibility - if a long-term sustainable salary cap is introduced, then it could be possible for the club to run at break-even without needing millions pumped in.

Pretty sure he offered his resignation at least once and it was rejected, think it only extended his stay by a week or two, though.

I usually pay for a pass, had wondered if everyone paying for a pass from Oxford United ifollow this Tuesday, rather than ITFC ifollow would be a nice protest.

It's obviously massively petty and thus perfectly suited to the situation, and if loads of Ipswich fans posted pics on itfc twitter of their Oxford ifollow page it would be quite funny.

Yes, that's what I thought - no surprises that Lambert is spiteful like this, but depressingly predictable that the club don't have anyone who can stand up to him and say, no, we don't do things like that at Ipswich.

Gibbs - Disgusting by Lambert
at 17:32 28 Nov 2020

Gibbs was picked ahead of Jackson, Drinan, Huws (if fit), Lankester, Dobra etc. All would have looked much stronger and it would have been easy to move Judge into the midfield 3 if necessary.

That'll be all we see of Gibbs this season as well, so it won't 'help his development' - the best thing for his development would be to put him on the bench, have him around the first team for a while, get used to things before throwing him in like that.

McGavin was 20 when he made his debut, so not that comparable.

Have you got a link to a post where someone said to 'throw in a youth' in place of Judge?

Today it clearly should have been two strikers, because we had 4 fit strikers available and lots of midfielders out injured.

Two out of Dozzell, McGavin, Judge or Huws (if he was fit) were fine as the two central midfielders, then two of Bennetts, Lankester or Dobra in the wide midfield positions. There was absolutely no need to throw in Gibbs.

Post-match interview will be interesting

Think he'll try to blame it on the people who (in his head) said he should be throwing in the kids.
