Ipswich Town 2-0 Accrington Stanley - Match Report
at 17:18:48

In these rather grim, challenging, and unpredictable times, I am coming to LOVE Saturday afternoons, when I can enjoy a brief moment of fulfilled hope, at the news of another Town win.

I can't be bothered with any 'ifs' or 'buts'; I just want to celebrate shard of pure happiness that my team keeps winning, and we're Top of the League!!

Onwards and upwards, you beautiful Blue Boys... #ITID #COYB

Superb!!! What a great start to the season, and with three two-goal-margins, three clean sheets, and various different scorers, what's not to like!!

Lambert: Some of the Football Was Excellent
at 14:05:22

When Lambert arrived, I put my ex-Norwich prejudice aside, for the sake of 'progress'/moving forward. I gave him the benefit of the doubt in every regard, and was pleased with the intial feelgood factor.

Standing on the cusp of a new season, however, the budgie-stuff is irrelevant, as the cold evidence of his tenure has shown he's simply a poor manager, with an awful record, and a delusional/narcissistic outlook...

I fear the worst this season, and think we'll be lucky to finish in the top 10.

The blunt bottom-line is he's simply not fit for our purpose, and I look forward to him moving on ASAP before we fall too far to ever come back...

Lambert: I Think They'll Go for Points Per Game
at 16:36:02

The truth is, we're more likely to come out of this season with more points if we're GIVEN them, than if we PLAY for them...

Lambert Not Giving Up on Play-Offs
at 14:20:13

So, Paul, you're not giving up on the play-offs?

In other news, I am not giving up on being the next Prime Minister, and winning the lottery for 18 consecutive weeks.

Exeter City 2-1 Ipswich Town - Match Report
at 21:06:12

Even the most optimistic fan (note: I am not saying 'delusional-fan', they're irrelevant, because their opinions are based on blind faith, not evidence, or facts...) has to admit that over the past decade Town have limped from one supposed 'low point' to another.
I now have a feeling about Town I've literally NEVER had before in my whole life - hopelessness...
I've followed Town through thick and thin, and I'll always want the best for them, and will always give my support, BUT, at the moment, I don't have any hope whatsoever that we're going to turn things around.
The whole set-up is chaotic, lacking structure, stability and purpose; this is powerfully symbolised by the five-year contract offered to Lambert in the midst of such an appalling run.
Nobody has an idea how to turn it around, including me, and so we'll just float along, assailed by the waves of chance until we're eventually and inevitably ship-wrecked. The only question is how long this will take, and will anything be salvageable so we can try again.
Phew. I needed to get that off my chest, and as a teacher, I am not looking forward to returning to school on Monday, knowing how much abuse I am going to suffer at the hands of my pupils. Worst of all, I have no response to their criticism...

Wycombe Wanderers 1-1 Ipswich Town- Match Report
at 17:20:34

Looking at that form-table, MidasTouch, leaves me incredulous as to why we'd sign PL on a five-year contract at the moment!! Am I missing something??? He still had 18 months left on his current deal - why didn't we wait to see if he's able to turn things around.
I JUST DON'T GET THIS... :0(

Blues Out to End Winless Run and Sky Hoodoo Against Leaders Wycombe
at 12:53:08

Wooly74 - thanks for posting. You've helped us all to refocus our perspective on the real issues here.
It's impossible to even consider slagging off our club, or wishing we supported someone else (although the latter has often crossed my mind over the past decade...), and instead, we just have to strap ourselves in for the ride, even though we suspect it's going to be horrible.
Sigh.
It's REALLY hard being a Town fan isn't it?
I am afraid I have no optimism AT ALL about today's match, or indeed about ANY match we're involved in at the moment.
Nonetheless, I wish Paul and the team well, and give a special shout-out to the amazing Town fans who're willing to spend their hard-earned cash on such an unpredictable team.
Happy New Year everyone, and COYB FOREVER...

Lincoln City 5-3 Ipswich Town - Match Report

Goodness. We've really hit very worrying times, haven't we?

Having said which, I sense things are only going to get worse. A lot worse.

Evans wants to see, but nobody wants to buy (can you blame them??); Lambert is devoid of ideas, and is becoming fractious with fans and journalists. He's bound to leave before the end of the season.

I wish there was an obvious way-out, but I fear we're in freefall, with nothing to break our eventual splat, and little/no hope of any meaningful, long-term rebuilding.

Strap yourselves in folks - it's going to be dire - VERY dire indeed...

RIP Town. I'll love you till my last breath, or yours, whichever comes first.

Lambert: It Would Be Great to Go Through and Draw One of the Big Guns
at 10:37:19

Look. I am NOT trying to be negative/cynical, but I am struggling with this one...
Do I always want Town to win? Of course I do!
Would it therefore be good to get into the third round? Yes, I suppose so...
Are you therefore rooting for Town today? Um, yes, but, um...

The thing is, if we're honest, we all know Town just aren't really good at the moment. Even in League One, we're struggling to look impressive. Therefore, I find myself thinking, "What's the point of winning cup-games, that'll distract from our already-difficult league battles?"
Therefore, all things said, I think we should just quietly bow out of the cup, and concentrate on the league. After what we've seen so far this season, it's not a foregone conclusion we'll be going up. Even worse than this is the other truth that if we do somehow get promoted, what kind of season would we have in the Championship with this squad, and this manager?

Okay. Now I've written it, I'll hunker down for the potential claims that I am negative, or don't support the team.

I can assure you I do, and have done so for a VERY long time. It's just all so very disappointing and painful at the moment, and I wondered whether airing my concerns would be cathartic.

Let's see, eh?

If Town are going to field even a half-decent team, I'd be more than happy to attend this. If it's second or third string, however, I feel they ought to tell us in advance, to inform our decisions.
The match at London Road was AWESOME, earlier in the season, so come on Town, tell us the truth - how seriously are you taking this match? We're willing to give our time and money, so we deserve to be told...
