|One criticism I made of Lambert’s ITFC doesn’t seem to hold water presently|
at 10:59 13 Mar 2019
and that was a lack of heart. We waited ages for a Lambert picked ITFC to get anything from a game in which it trailed and now we have 4 drawn matches from a goal down as well as a 5th in which we were a man light, away from home for an hour. 3 of those draws against sides in the top 6 too. Impressive stuff, and tangible improvement as well.
If we can get more clinical with our chances and cut down on errors in our own box, then next season will be very interesting.

|Fair play - that’s a good point from a tough fixture|

Shame we couldn’t win it and it sounds like we played well enough to have done so, but things could easily have gone south after that early concesssion. Well played Town.

Amid all the snarkiness and black humour, it certainly sounds like we’re battling hard and causing some problems. Just wish that I could shake the feeling that we’re going to give away a second after 55 minutes.
|The Knudsen threads - an apology|
at 15:58 25 Feb 2019
Afternoon everyone. I just wanted to say sorry for the way the Knudsen threads have gone. A discussion about someone getting sent off in a football match should not degenerate into the slagging match that it did, and I take responsibility for that.
Genuine apologies to footers, artbossbeard, bluebell, 44_not_out, pecker, bluefish and anyone else who was either directly insulted during the threads or was disgusted by what they read during the course of the thread.

|Don’t hurry back from suspension, Jonas|

We are utterly sick of you fcking us over and giving the opposition a boost. This is entirely Knudsen’s fault - the sooner he fcks off the better. He’s always been useless.
|Fk off, Jonas|
at 15:31 23 Feb 2019
Seriously, just fk off...
|I have no problem with Knudsen starting. I guess Nolan either ripped it |

up in training this week or Lambert’s looking at players we will have next season (Jackson/Harrison/Nsiala all on the bench too) and decided to start utilising them if the loanees don’t stay.
Is Kenlock injured? Or does Elder’s presence suggest that Lambert, like McCarthy before him, is going to treat Kenlock and Emmanuel as pariahs if they make a single, costly mistake in a preceding game?

He’s trying to frame it that players blocked his efforts to improve them - to me it just reads that he came in and treated everyone who was already here as though they were mediocre from the moment he got here. He demoralised and undermined his players from day 1. If there is any justice, his next job will be in an Amazon warehouse somewhere. His legacy is a side careering into League One and a ground (as highlighted in George Caulkin’s Times preview of tomorrow’s match) plastered in meaningless motivational quotes and buzzwords.
|Just wanted to send my best wishes to those going on Sunday|
at 10:34 8 Feb 2019
I’m spending the weekend with the wife in the New Forest and driving back on Sunday. Score updates on Five Live is about all I can stand to take from this fixture at this point in time. I really hope that those going do get something nice to remember - it would be a nice time to break this losing away run, and those who go to Carrow Road for this game deserve something special. I hope Lambert and the team give it their all for you.
|Have to have some sympathy for Grant Ward yesterday|
at 09:52 27 Dec 2018
Carried off on a stretcher and had to deal with the socially awkward situation of someone in a wheelchair launching the ball at his face at close range when he went to receive the ball for a throw-in, to the cheers of the QPR fans and which the wheelchair user gleefully acknowledged. I mean what could poor Grant say,
“Now, now. Play nice. I didn’t put you in that thing.”
“Well, you’ve blown your chances of getting my shirt after the game”.
“You might be disabled, but that doesn’t give you licence to behave like a dick”.
Also, that glass box to the right of our stand which had the family of QPR fans in it. I wonder if they hire that out whenever they play Millwall or Leeds?
|The thing is there wasn’t much in the game until Nolan decided to demonstrate|
at 21:52 26 Dec 2018
that he CAN play defence-splitting passes rather that powder-puffing about. A career at the altar of Paul Hurst coming into beautiful fruition at that moment - the tanned gnome must have been so proud. After the initial moment of shock that we had shot ourselves in the foot so horrendously, I looked at Nolan and tried to shout encouragement. He looked like he wanted to cry. This isn’t going to end well.
The second goal was just as bad, it looked like QPR had 4 men waiting to head the ball home. 2-0 down after 34 minutes and game over...and that’s the biggest indictment of Ipswich 2018-19. It was huff, puff and not much else from there, while QPR’s 3rd goal both in terms of the passing and the finish seemed to symbolically show just how far off we are from being a Championship standard side.
