|Perhaps we need a German Manager?|
at 00:49 11 Mar 2020
Perhaps we need a German Manager, with good contacts, and coaching staff, prepared to give youth a chance, moulded with key older/experienced players, and with a definite style of play.
Instead we have a Manager that lives in his own past experience in The German League, but has nothing to give to ITFC apart from being a very good PR man.
I am Ipswich Town through and through, so sorry if it has a 'Nodge feel', please add a Mananger, plus coaching staff that you think could brighten up our 'love of football' and get Town more upward?
|Has been sacked? I hope so|

Has Paul Lambert been sacked, or is it just gossip?
I hope that he has been, because he is not good enough.
Living in his past, not looking to the future, has ignored our young talent,
dismissed it, sent them out on loan instead of making them part of the team.
|New young Manager with nous?|
at 02:13 5 Mar 2020
I am Ipswich through and through, old enough to remember, an ex player Alf Ramsey coming to Manage our Club. Things went wrong for him at first, he soon sorted the problem out, (always backed by The Cobbold Family, our owners at the time), bought two players to keep us up, devised a new way of playing, and brought success to the club. Then taken from us to be England's most successful Manager.
Bobby Robson, an ex player, learning his trade as a young Manager, also had a hard start, but had an undercurrent of very good young players, that he blooded, alongside two astute buys Muhren and Tyson, from our overseas scouts, the rest is history of our club. Again our Manager was taken, to be the second best England Manager.
George Burley, another young ex player, Manager did his bit for the Club, gaining promotion to the (new Premiership) via a play off win at Wembley. Our 6th place finish the following year, has proved our downfall as a Club.
Commitments to European games, new stadia built for a stay in the Prem, bad player buys, saw us relegated (with no parachute payment that is enjoyed by those under performing teams today). The Club is in the hands of the Administrators, enter Marcus Evans to save us.
Not a real footballing man, he decided to throw money at a Club that had a really good pedigree, to make money, or lose it through tax? He got his hands burnt through not knowing the game, throwing money to Managers that wasted it, and is doing it now.
I will not add MM to this, cos he always had an eye for a player, and made £millions for ME but not Ipswich Town. PL is an old school has been, has nothing to offer to our Club, I would rather have a new up and coming ex player. Any ideas?
|Time to attack?|
at 03:53 3 Mar 2020
Two, season defining home games, if we lose either our season is over as serious promotion contenders.
Please Paul Lambert, pick a team/formation to attack, at least give us a team to cheer, no comic defending or powder puff shooting, after laborious build up play.
I would go for 3-4-1-2 formation, but it must be designed to attack.
Woolfenden, Chambers, Earl
Edwards/Dobra, Bishop, Skues, Garbutt
Skues would have a major task in covering the defence, but that is what he is good at, the wing backs, must play to their strengths as attacking players, but be prepared to do their bit as defenders, allow the surging runs of Bishop, and hold up play of Keane to create for Simpson and Sears?
|Oh the decline of our club.|
at 02:14 13 Feb 2020
In 2007, I watched Debenham FC (a village team) play AFC Wimbledon in a FA Cup game, obviously the visitors won the game.
Town finished 8th in The Championship that season while AFC Wimbledon gained promotion in 3rd place of The Isthmian Premier League.
That is food for though? as our once proud club battled out a 0-0 draw on Tuesday.
Something is really wrong?
On Monday at Playford Road, I watched an excellent U23 game, played at pace, despite unhelpful weather, our Town team gained a 2-2 against current league leaders Watford.
There was a clear pattern of play, each Town player moving, working for each other, attacking, and most of all prepared to SHOOT.
Our U23 Academy Managers/coaches have the art, time for our 1st Manager and his coaching team to up their game?
