Town's New Era Gets Under Way as MK Dons Visit
at 13:26:55

Our players have had the sh*t kicked out of them by fans and successive managers and it’s no wonder there is a crisis of confidence in the squad. PC has hopefully started to lift morale. Expectations have already changed as we don’t expect to lose, but we need to start expecting to win. As far as this season goes, while we still live in hope, I personally think pre-season has already started and players need to start showing whether they want to play for this club or not. I will still be watching today and I will still predict a win but that is more out of loyalty than belief.

Chambers: We Have to Believe
at 11:15:50

I think we have got into a lot of bad habits.
We don’t get the ball in the box early so our attacking players don’t bother going in there.
We never shoot from outside the box so opposing defenders don’t need to shut that down. That in turn means they don’t leave gaps between the two defensive lines for us to exploit. Norwood gives too many free kicks away in areas where he should be winning free kicks. We make too many sideways and backward passes which give the opposition time to get organised. We take an absolute age over attacking throw-ins with little or no movement. Too many of the second balls that we are competing for are in our own half. We need to play higher up the pitch with confidence and belief and some urgency. These are the right habits to get into. Defences should fear us not feel like they are having a day off. COYB make us believe.

Cook Faces Former Assistant Richardson as Town Visit Old Club Wigan
at 21:35:22

It was very simple in my day; if you weren’t fit enough, you didn’t get anywhere near the first team squad. I know the fixture list is very demanding and players need to recover but the old adage is still true: If you are winning, you don’t get tired. We desperately need to start winning games.

Cook: I Believe We Can Get in There, So Let’s Go and Try and Do It
at 19:19:23

Both Hurst and Lambert used to send me to sleep during their press conferences. PC makes me smile. I think he’d be great fun on a lads night out. If it’s true that a team reflects the personality of its manager, then it won’t be long before we are seeing entertaining football and Town players enjoying their football. TWTD

Judge: I Totally Dispute What Has Been Said By the Referee
at 17:54:48

Tommy Doherty used to tell a funny story about George Best:
George Best - ‘Hey ref, if I called you a c**t, you’d send me off right?’
Ref - ‘yes I would’.
Bestie - ‘But if I thought you were a c**t, you couldn’t send me off right?’
Ref - ‘That’s right.’
GB - ‘Well ref, I think you’re a C**t!’
Ref: ‘I think I’ll send you off then.’
I would just love that to be a true story.

Ipswich Town 1-1 Lincoln City - Match Report
at 15:31:01

It’s all too slow. At one point I thought Chambers was going to get booked for time wasting over a throw-in. Then I remembered we were a goal down at the time. Kenlock is even slower over throw-ins. I think he got booked recently. There doesn’t appear to be any movement off the ball. I don’t think Cook will stand for it for too long. It was a good point but there is a lot of work to do before we can be considered genuine contenders.

Cook Proud to Take Charge at Portman Road For First Time as Blues Host Imps
at 17:36:21

Kenlock had done well in the two or three previous games but he looked like the little boy lost again on Saturday. I’d give Ward a start and maybe Thomas and Judge. Parrot and Norwood would swap roles for me with Parrot up top.

Yallop: Town Couldn't Be in Better Hands If Takeover Goes Through
at 11:42:38

It really looks like this is going to happen. I imagine one stumbling block would have been Lambert’s lengthy contract. Evans may have taken a hit on that to get things moving. There are rules about how much interested parties are allowed to say publicly during a takeover. No matter what we think of this potential takeover, there has to be a change. We simply can’t keep going the way we have. I also think the problems started well before Evans took over.
I think ‘Packers financing’ may relate to The Green Bay Packers. I could be wrong.

Accrington Stanley 1-2 Ipswich Town - Match Report
at 21:50:45

A lot to work on but also a lot to work with. We did ok but I can’t understand the hopeful ball up front all the time when the opposition are down to ten men; it makes it too easy for the defence. Kenlock had a great first half but struggled in the second half. Judge and Parrot ran their socks off. I was gutted when Parrot was brought down for the penalty as I had him for first scorer. I think it was a tap-in for him which is probably why Connelly saw red. I was impressed with Accrington; they play nice football on a cow patch of a pitch. The home commentary was great on tv too (quite impartial). I also like the idea of having one of the current squad in the commentary box. It gives a new perspective, like when his ‘best mate’ was booked for diving and he said he dives a lot in training too. I knew a few like that in my playing days.

Town Takeover Close
at 09:33:55

Now would be a good time to buy. The value of our best players is dramatically depressed due to the level at which they are playing. If we were to reach the championship, whether this time or next season, one of our £2 - 3m prize assets suddenly becomes worth £5 - 10m. We probably have 3 or 4 young players who would fit into that category with another 3 or 4 knocking on the door.

Hull City 0-1 Ipswich Town - Match Report

First time in a king time that I have felt any emotion during a Town game. Mostly nerves, but also pride and excitement. Like the Oxford game, it should have been a comfortable win. There is room for improvement, especially in the final third but well done lads. Enjoy your pizzas and the journey home.

Ipswich Town 0-0 Oxford United - Match Report
at 20:51:01

The players’ response to recent off-field pressures was outstanding today (if not the performance). However, I stand by my pre-match comment: Anything less than two points from Oxford and Hull should see the end of Lambert’s time at Ipswich. A win today would have taken the pressure off somewhat. The pressure is on to get a result at Hull. A point or three could be a great springboard towards resuscitating our fading hopes. A defeat could prove terminal.

Better. Unlike last Tuesday, everyone wanted the ball and we looked to get the ball forward at every opportunity. With better finishing that could have been a comfortable win. Nsiala and Wilson looked ok at the back. Norwood is a handful and Dozzell was busy in midfield. Our most improved player for me is Kenlock who is beginning to change my opinion of him.

Blues Host Oxford Aiming to Upset Form Book

For a genius player, Downes throws himself around like a non-league thug. Who’s turn is it to get sent off this week? For the first time ever I’ve predicted a defeat. I can’t see any other result. Anything less than 2 points in these next two games and Lambert should be shown the door. Spend the money saved on players’ wages on Lambert’s severance and getting in Howe or Wilder. Last Tuesday was a real low point for me. I just felt so sad. Football should be uplifting and a joy to watch.

Gill: A Game We Have to Win
at 19:50:09

I’m no fan of Chambers but the Crewe goal came as a direct result of McGuinness missing a tackle while he was way out of position on the halfway line. Chambers had to come inside to cover for him. Any decent coach would have been screaming at Chambers to do just that. Someone needs to look after the young lads at the back so unfortunately we’re going to be stuck with Chambers for a while longer. I was hoping we were going to get an experienced centre-back but it didn’t happen. So you’ve got to go with what you’ve got.
