Lambert Tight-Lipped on Ward Return Claims
at 15:13:30

Agree with Terry N.

Ward has a good engine, is skilful, can take on a defender and would be useful cover at either wingback or in midfield.

WORTH A PUNT UNTIL THE END OF THE SEASON.

Ex-Blue Mings Set for England Debut
at 12:50:45

After friday's lacklustre performance from England, Tyrone can't do any worse than Keane. Not sure about Rice and Rose either.

Thought we would move forward after the World Cup where our level was exposed by the top three Teams, France, Croatia and Belguim, but we seem to be going backwards at the moment.

The defence and midfield has got plenty of problems.

Town Open Lambert Contract Talks Claim
at 18:10:44

If you look at all the positive things that have happened to our Club they have all emanated from the Manager.

Paul Lambert has worked wonders in such a short space of time and has certainly rekindled my love for Ipswich Town, which I'll be honest was in serious decline after the Keane/Jewell/McCarthy years.

Lets hope that period in time will soon become a bad memory.

Keane Reignites Walters Spat
at 18:15:00

Lets remind ourselves....this was possibly the worst Manager in our history....bizarre Team selections and tactics. Bloody awful Man Management....wanted to change our strip from blue to red and oh yes...sold Jordan Rhodes to Huddesfield for peanuts.

He may have been a decent player but as a Football Manager and it appears human being he leaves alot to be be desired.

Bolton Could Be Liquidated as Takeover Collapses
at 13:50:26

Sad to see a once great club and founder member of the football league this situtation.

The playoff semi-final at Portman Road still rates as one of favourite matches, although winning the FA Cup and the semi-final at Highbury against West Brom probably edge it for me.

As for us losing 3 points in reality we'll be no worse off than any other Team in the Division should Bolton Wanderers go into liquidation. Anyway I'd rather win the Division in style than because of some hollow victory last saturday.

Lambert: There Was No Respect for the Place
at 14:49:35

Good to see that Paul Lambert has noticed how tardy the place was looking and has been for many seasons.

Kind of makes you think did previous Managers pick up on it but couldn't really give a toss about the fans.

I'm sure most Stands need some serious TLC. The Sir Alf roof for instance has been leaking water when it rained and vegetation growing for many seasons. Also the hand driers need replacing with ones fit for purpose. The current ones cut out after about 5 seconds.

OK many of us remember the hot bovril days and smelly toilets but come on it's 2019 not the 1960s. Going to the Match should be a memorable experience both on and off the pitch.

The Club afterall should be making sure that the younger generation want to return.

Lambert Expresses Transfer Frustrations: It's the Way the Club's Run
at 13:42:14

I've said this all along, Evans came up short in The Championship and will do the same in League One. Sorry but it's a recipe for disaster. If you want to improve you've got to invest in quality players year on year. You don't need to spend a fortune but you have to show intent. If we don't we will be languishing in League One for quite a few seasons with little or no prospects and you can bank on Evans cashing in on his saleable assets.

The centre half issue should have been sorted out weeks instead of messing around in the bargain basement!

Elliott and Norris at Town to Conclude Loan Moves
at 18:32:23

Probably suits all parties.

Bart is on loan and depending upon circumstances could return to Ipswich next season.

Elliott move could be a look before you buy as he's out of contract next season.. and Norris from all accounts is a decent keeper

Now just sort us out a couple of defenders and we should be sorted.

Owner Evans Determined to Keep Judge and Dozzell at Portman Road
at 23:16:44

Very happy to eat my words of a few days ago.

This is excellent news and if it becomes a reality will show the Club's intent to get out of this division.

Also pleased to see the young fullback Crowe has signed a contract after much speculation.

If we can now get in the players Lambert's after in the next few days it will be the icing on the cake.

Lambert: Dozzell Would Cost a Helluva Lot of Money
at 06:52:41

After the feelgood factor built up after our most disasterous season it was inevitable that the bubble would be burst sooner or later.

Lambert said our young players are our future so if that's really the case and we are not just a feeding ground for other wealthy Clubs than just say NO.

Unfortunately we have an Owner who has not invested in the Club. OK he has kept it running but if he'd brought in our own players maybe one or two a season we would have avoided the situation we are now in.

I've supported Ipswich for 58 years, mostly as a season ticket holder, but I had a feeling this would happen once the dust had settled and the Club had cashed in on the supporters goodwill .

and folks that's the reason I did not renew my ticket!!!

Mayor Joins Plymouth
at 16:53:43

Was on the cards as he seemed to only have a whistle stop rather than the grand tour with us.

Can't see the Plymouth fascilities having a bigger wow factor than ours.

Probably realised with the likes of a fit Freddie on the scene his game time would be limited.

A bit short sighted moving to Plymouth because he was familiar with the Manager as what happens if the guy gets the sack?

Long term surely his prospects would be better with us and a bigger salary?

Maybe we were also just going through the motions on this one?

Robins Set High Price for Webster as Villa Bid Turned Down
at 21:01:01

Whilst the likes of Garner and Waghorn may have wanted to leave and lets face it at the time letting McGoldrick go was no big deal for most supporters, I really felt , at the time, we should have done two things. Made more effort to keep Webster and tried to get back Carter-Vickers on loan. We would probably have still been in the Championship with two good centre-backs. Mind you we'd have probably sold Webster at the end of the season for £5 mill.

Unfortunately we let Webster go and never replaced the strikers with anyone already proven in the Championship.

Lambert: We're Still Looking at Free Transfers
at 16:16:15

Whilst I agree with Arnie M and I'm certainly not expecting ME to throw a load of money at getting us back up, I do think the root of our problem has been the lack of one or two quality signings each season over his tenure. That way we could have built sensibly and they would have been our players rather than the volume of loanees during McCarthy's time, which was only ever going to be a short term fix.

Investing in maybe a couple of decent players could make a difference and possibly get us promoted.

My fear is that ME will follow the same pattern, maybe not so many loanees which will give the young players a chance, but will ultimately see us still languishing in Div 1 for another season.

It's a tough division to get out of and several Teams will fancy there chances.

Chambo: Supporters Will Expect a Reaction
at 15:27:26

The Teams that get out of this Division lose only 4 or 5 matches during the season.

They also win the majority of their matches.

I just hope that we find some consistency as there are a lot of tough Teams in League 1 who'll fancy their chances.

We can do it but it's going to take a big effort and everyone needs to be at it week in week out.

Celtic Linked With £500,000-Rated Crowe
at 10:19:36

Very confusing...what is it that all these other Clubs have seen in Dylan Crowe that we haven't?
I appreciate he is free to go where he wants to, but surely if he's that good his first objective should be to push on into our first Team?

At the moment he doesn't get a mention by PL so what is going on?

Norwood Coy on Future as Tranmere Secure Promotion to League One
at 00:13:12

A lot of pessimistic comments on here.

I think he was being respectful to Tranmere with his comments after the game and clearly wants to celebrate and savour the moment.

Coming to Ipswich would be a major deal for him and I reckon a signing is imminent.

Lets have a little faith in the management to get this one over the line.

Gills Keeper Holy at Town for Medical and to Finalise Deal
at 13:13:50

Looking at the video he certainly saved a variety of shots but can't say there were too many times when he actually held the ball.

Would imagine if Bart goes they will also be looking at another keeper, possibly Christy Pym who seem to well thought of.

O'Neill: We've Learnt From This Season
at 12:49:07

Fixing the leaks in the roof of the Sir Alf would be a good start and replacing hand driers that only work for 5 seconds with more efficient ones.

When it rains in The Sir Alf it's a case of dodging the drips from the roof and its been like it for many years.

Surely the days of putting up with inadequate toilet areas and massive cues for your hot bovril should be long gone.

Does no one check these things.

Taylor: Loan Players Not Forgotten

Donacien looked a decent right back, especially up against Adomah when we played Villa.

Not a centre half or left back in my book!
