Cook: Gary's Disappointed With the Quality of Player We Have in the Building
at 09:10:29

A sad state of affairs. When a manager criticises his players as a group like this, it's unlikely to improve anything before the end of the season. Terry Butcher said a similar thing at Hibernian, and look what happened to them...and him. Mind you, I don't see Cook getting sacked...yet, anyway...

Cook: You Can Feel the Passion of Our Supporters But Also the Anger and Frustration
at 15:13:06

If The Greyhound is Bryan Klug's local, and Paul Cook joined him for a pint, I'm impressed. I've been away from Ipswich for 50 years, now, but back in the day the Greyhound was MY local. All the more reason for ending this comment...'ONWARDS and UPWARDS'!

Judge to Play No Further Part as Contract Extension Not Activated
at 10:36:03

I have to say that this is very sad. This young man has had a huge amount to deal with. There was his concern about his daughter's health which made him want to return to London. Then, as a family man with a vulnerable child, he was particularly concerned about the pandemic. Finally, the illness and death of his mother, just a few weeks ago, clearly affected his life in every respect and contributed to that red card. He has had more good games than bad games for Town, and there's not many that applies to. I wish him well.

Ndaba: The Aim is to Play as Much as I Can
at 14:14:45

What he has to say is interesting. Saw Drinan for Ayr games on TV a couple of times. Good pace, skill and thinking - on and off the ball. Yes. He was popular at Ayr. Then, the comments about keeping fit and being a member of a team during the pandemic. Different for these guys from those who can work at home on a laptop.

Lambert: Morally I Think Us Playing Football is Wrong
at 23:38:18

Can't believe some of these posts. Lambert's right. This is an appalling disease. Read what he and O'Neill have to say about catching it, and suffering from it. Think about the mental toll on the players. Is it any surprise that there is 'dressing room unrest'? Fitness, heath and safety are the foundations of these guys' livelihoods. There hasn't anything like Covid-19 for four generations.

BBC Radio Suffolk Not Travelling to Burton But Brenner Back
at 23:29:22

Agree with most of the above posts! Hadn't heard Brenner, or input from Mick Mills, (see my blog!) until the beginning of this season. They must be up there with the very best of local/regional radio across the UK. Bert and jabberjackson (above) are spot on. Yes. SJ's commentary was classic - not only the missed goal, but identifying the players by the colour of their boots...only to realise, eventually, that some players were wearing boots of the same colour. Mick Millls was kind and understanding...and a great help to this confused listener.

EFL Confirm Switch to Five Subs
at 17:01:17

Aw, come on guys. Let's not use this news as another opportunity to slag off the manager. Think about what it really means. A footballer's career is short. This pandemic has affected team training for 9 months. Players lost match fitness during the curtailed season, and the summer, and are playing matches under very different circumstances this season. (There have been some very weird results across the Divisions.) Players' fitness, physical and mental health should take priority. This is the reason for the 5 substitutes opportunity, and surely everyone will benefit.

Sir Alf Born 100 Years Ago Today
at 08:57:34

Many thanks for this Asif, and Phil, for publishing. Sir Alf's record speaks for itself, but this article tell us so much about the man. So many memories, but one is unique.

On a warm day in September 1955, my mate Jack and I were cycling to school when we saw Mr Ramsey waiting at the Goring Road bus stop. We parked our bikes, and with scraps of paper we walked shyly over to him and asked 'Can we have your autograph, please?' He eyed us quizzically and asked, 'How do you know who I am?' Such an incident, such a conversation, would be impossible today. I can't remember what our answers (if any) were, and over the years those scraps of paper have been lost, but I shall never forget that experience.

Vincent-Young Facing 12 Weeks Out Following Second Operation
at 13:42:38

Very interesting that the names and locations of the surgeons are mentioned. Indicates to me that club is spending more on the treatment of injuries, and that the overall care of players is higher on the agenda than it has been for a while. Using surgeons of this calibre speaks volumes. This is another example of what Paul Lambert means when he says things like 'This is a big football club.'

Taylor: Really, Really Proud
at 08:57:46

Look at the big picture, Bergholtblue. It seems to me that the answer to your question is to do with the development of the club and every individual associated with it. Lambert wants everyone to be involved. As Taylor develops, he will have to face the media more. (He 'really really' will!) So we hear a new voice, get new perspectives, find out more of players we know little about. Everyone comes out of this with a ittle more experience under our belts, and part of this wonderful revival of our club.

Lambert: It Could Have Been Three or Four
at 19:50:56

Hear what the man says. Read what he says - "The big thing for me was getting the fans back in and getting the team to bounce off them."
“You see the whole togetherness there, it’s a brilliant thing to see and something that’s probably not been here for many years. My biggest achievement at the minute is reconnecting the football club."

"the club’s in transition because it’s having to rebuild and reconnect with people, there’s so much work to get done here it’s incredible, it’s not just what you see on the pitch, it’s everywhere."

This man understands what a football club is all about. I haven't seen or felt like this about my hometown club since the days of Alf Ramsey and Bobby Robson (and, I guess, John Cobbold). Those were the days. These are the days.
