Who is setting and enforcing any standards at this club?
at 20:02 9 Feb 2020

They've fallen through the floor. Evans awarding PL with a 5 year deal on the back of a terrible run of form really sets the tone. Everyone and everything at the club seems far too comfortable, it has been that way for many years but it's even worse now we've dropped a level. We are still being expected to swallow that we are performing well, there are positives to take and that it's no disgrace to lose to the likes of Rotherham and Peterborough in the manner we did.

Did anyone else pick up on this?
at 08:59 30 Dec 2019

“Me and the staff we try and help them the best that we can. People think the game is about managers. It’s not about managers, the game’s about players and supporters and that’s what people want to see".

What a bizarre quote. Almost as bizarre as his quote earlier in the season about players being more important than tactics and formations.

What happened to the Lambert

that threw caution to the wind at Norwich? Chucking every attacking player possible on the pitch and nicking late goals.

What is the end game for Evans?
at 21:16 16 Dec 2019

I've posed this question many times, but today seems a good time to raise it again.

With a balance owing to him of approaching £100m he seems to have about reached his limit in terms of funding. It's going to be a 1/2 decent sales per summer approach to ensure that debt remains fairly stable and the club can operate virtually neutrally cash flow wise. That fits in with the approach of cultivating academy players to reduce signings needed and to bring in cash from future sales.

All perhaps well and good and not a bad model for operating but my concern is we are going to see the heart ripped out of the side every summer for the foreseeable future. People clinging onto us holding onto Wolfy and Downes unless huge (i've heard the likes of £10m bandied about) offers come in might be sadly disappointed.

We are getting further and further away from the Premier League every season. And with that ME is getting further and further away from recouping his money. When does he cut his losses?

He could be one hell of a player for us. He looked a man against boys today - reminded me a lot of Wickham when he was breaking through.

Has the introduction of VAR improved decision making?
at 10:47 21 Oct 2019

In the Premier League I think it's tough to argue that it has. There seems to be a reluctance to acknowledge when a referee has made an error and wrong decisions are being doubled down on. The fact that not once has a referee reviewed an incident on the pitch side monitor is bizarre.

Was our first goal bad from their perspective?
at 08:07 1 Sep 2019

I've seen Ricketts has said it was a sloppy goal to give away, "naive" and "we gave them a goal". You hear this all the time - it was a decent move and a great finish. We won the game because we have better players and outclassed them in moments, that is the short summary.

Downes is a proper player
at 21:35 3 Aug 2019

If he plays like that every week he's the first name on the team sheet.

Rowe also had a fantastic game. The goal came from him taking the ball, being positive and driving past a couple of players. A proper old school winger.

Norwood is an absolute handful. As Lambert said, a nightmare to play against.

I was impressed with our resilience and battling qualities today in a game that was far from easy. We ground it out IMO deserved the 3 points.

What have we learnt from the last 10 or so league games?
at 08:39 28 Apr 2019

We've developed no consistent pattern of play, not found a formation that works, chopped and changed players and look as devoid of confidence as we did towards the end of Hurst's time.

I guess all we can say is it has reinforced the need for several new players this summer.

Awful today
at 17:48 30 Mar 2019

That really was pretty spineless. Hull had to do very little to comfortably win that 2-0. First and foremost we need to be able to compete, it isn't going to get any easier in L1 next season on that front. We are a proper soft touch. And anyone wondering why we seem to end up on the wrong end of refereeing performances needs to look no further - who in that side is getting in the refs ear? We have loads of midfield options but we lack an enforcer - that is something Lambert needs to address along with a big striker, we may as well have played without anyone up front today.

It's a bit bizarre
at 12:50 17 Mar 2019

But anyone else here looking forward to going down now? I can't wait for next season. New grounds to visit, plenty of home grown players to be integrated into the side, the club is united and we should win some games again.

I don't feel even remotely disappointed or upset. I am at peace with it. It feels like the start of a revival.

Am I the only one that finds blaming Birmingham mad?
at 18:44 12 Mar 2019

I've seen and heard people on the radio and the TV doing so but would any club have definitely stopped that bloke getting onto the pitch? We don't have the same outrage at the club when a streaker gets on the pitch.

On a similar note, has anybody ever been checked going into Portman Road? If I so wished I could get a knife in there easily or a heavy object to be lobbed at a player. Checks at football grounds are virtually non-existent. It is a sad state of affairs if everybody has to be checked as they go in but I am very surprised given the climate in recent years that this isn't the case at football matches.
