I saw that tweet, There's no way they talk EVERY DAY, so I took that for sarcasm from someone annoyed with Ipswich fans contacting him as our own owner is uncontactable...

Mike Ashley
at 15:46 26 May 2020

I've always thought he'd be far worse than Evans, but thinking again Ashley has always spent whatever was necessary to get Newcastle to the Premier League, it's just when they're there he spends the bare minimum and pockets the rest......

Is that any better?

I'd be fine with Jackson going
at 10:30 22 May 2020

I agree with this.
I'd like us to play 4-3-3 next season.
I think Lankaster and Dobra are ready for bigger roles in those wide forward places along with Sears.

Is Jackson suited to the loan central striker - probably not. Could he be converted to be a success in a wide forward position - maybe.

Jackson was reasonable in L1 last season so if a good offer comes and we already have other players in mind who are a better fit or just simply better we should take it!

Gnanduillet is free and is a big targetman who outscored Jackson last season who would suit a lone central striker position far better than Jackson would

Keith Andrews deserves at least a mention - 9 goals in 20 games for us in a bad Ipswich team

Financial implications of Covid on ITFC
at 15:03 20 Apr 2020

I was 75% sure we'd lose Downes and Woolfenden anyway , but I was thinking/hoping we're better equipped to deal with this than most other L1 and L2 clubs, so perhaps Evans could cover our losses and we use this as an opportunity to sign the best young talent in L1 + L2 at knocked down prices.

But then it's been quite a few years since Evans gave us what we've hoped for!

Mick McCarthy still living rent free in many Ipswich fan's heads
at 14:52 20 Apr 2020

I can't speak for others but I quite liked Mick, just wouldn't want to pay again to watch one of his teams play football. I think the animosity at him came because fans felt they had to for Evans to hear and take note.

You are exactly right on that timing though, if he'd have left after Lincoln when most fans were still supportive of him I think the general consensus would have been he did well on the funds available and he took us as far as he could so left after doing a decent job.

Being bored in the Championship or being bored in L1 aren't the only 2 possibilities - there are other managers out there - hope for entertainment!!

I don't think fans demanded more success than what Mick was delivering, just could see we were on a downward spiral.

I don't understand those fans who were happy with what Mick was producing -
90 minutes of boredom but safe in the Championship - that made you happy?

I think the entertainment has been slightly better under Lambert (still not good though), although the results have been worse.
I think I'm in a minority and would give Lambert more time (until the end of the season) but if the slump continues then he'll have to go.

It's the club rule that's the killer, I started with your team and tried to change it - I mean if you say wanted to put Zlatan in he then wipes out anyone who's ever played for Ajax, Juve, Inter, Barca, AC, PSG & Man Utd!
I might come back and make more changes after more thought.....

Rooney- you tool
at 19:11 5 Apr 2020

I think those who are critical of Rooney and others have just made up their minds after reading a headline. Rooney has said he will give something.
I think he'll just follow what the Premier League players will do.

They were asked to take a 30% pay cut which will save their clubs £500m, but also means the govt. will receive £200m+ less in tax so they are looking at giving the 30% to charity instead, meaning the govt will still get their tax and the players money will hopefully go to where it's needed

Article on ITFC - D3D4 football
at 16:18 9 Mar 2020

When we were top earlier in the season we weren't playing brilliantly we were just being slightly more clinical than the opposition, now our strikers have lost confidence and the reverse is true.

We have changed system or approach nearly every game, unable to find a system that can work for us against most opponents.
Lambert doesn't seem like a good coach, our players still often play like they haven't met each other before

Evans just can't win
at 11:10 6 Mar 2020

It took some time for me to come to terms with Lambert too, but I know he did great with Norwich and then was rude to Look East/Anglia TV in his initial press conference whenever they mentioned the scum so I accepted him

at 10:52 6 Mar 2020

Yes people are unhappy with Evans because the team is doing badly at the moment, and yes throughout Evans's tenure the club has gone backwards.

Evans has made mistakes but he's not stupid so must be learning from them. With his managerial history, all were good managers in principle just haven't worked out.

Evans isn't responsible for how our players are performing and why they are less than the sum of their parts at the moment, hopefully Lambert can turn it around but I doubt it....
