Luton Town
at 20:07 30 Mar 2019

Always had a soft spot for Luton Football Club - we always used to get their results on Anglia News (not sure if that is still the case)

I think if I'd told you a couple of years ago that they would be starting 2019/20 in a league above Ipswich then you wouldn't have believed me

Still goes to show that it isn't all doom and gloom when you go down - and they really went down the leagues

Quaner and Keane
at 13:02 14 Feb 2019

Just been back to watch the highlights and both showed some really good touches throughout the game that were picked up - Keanes little back heal and also the touch on to Jonas at the corner were both good pieces of skill

Would really like to see these tow play together for the next few games - I doubt we'll keep both (or possibly even one of them) if we do get relegated - however it will be good for our midfield to have something to aim at (and the ball won't keep coming back)

Bishop

Offer him a contract now based on a good 2nd half

Wait another month or so but try and give him some games to prove his fitness

Give up on the guy and let him go free at the end of the season

If you were Lambert what would you do ?

Actually pretty happy with Keane
at 18:00 2 Jan 2019

Especially if it is with a view to a permanent signing.

He is the sort of player we need to be signing about now - someone who wants to prove a point and is hungry to do so. Can anyone really see the likes of Murphy or Gestede in the trenches if things are still going wrong in a couple of weeks - both sat on decent contracts knowing that they will be fine at the end of the season whatever the results

Decent first half
at 15:54 29 Dec 2018

But penalty the sort of thing that goes against you when you are at the bottom - think Jackson is still too lightweight but nearly set up Sears for the equaliser and their keeper made a great save from Trev

All not lost in this game but still massive issues with RB, CM and CF that we desperately need new players

Spence was unlucky and hasn't been as bad a people saying - still needs replacing though as he is the new Town boo-boy

Why is it Cameron's fault ?
at 12:37 12 Dec 2018

So I expect this will get down voted looking at the majority of posts on here but I am struggling to see why David Cameron gets so much of the blame for the current situation

Obviously he was PM and took us into the referendum so from that point of view the buck stops there - however I believe he did it for the right reasons

Back then the UKIP party was getting a lot of support - both from the out and out right wing and also those disenfranchised by the main two parties. They were promising a lot with very little substance but were gaining votes at a local level and looking like doing very well at national level too

So in DCs mind - and I am sure in the mind of most centralists - it was a case of proving that the country did not want to go in this direction - very similar to the Scotland Independence vote - a remain vote would have pretty much undermined anything that UKIP stated was the will of the people

From then on out it should have been up to all of us that wanted to remain to persuade those planning to vote exit that it would not be a good idea. There is no point in whining now and blaming others - we should have done more - we were all too complacent (something I think that Cameron was very guilty of too)

I know of parents of my friends married to European Nationals that voted for exit - I know a lot of well educated people that fell for all the 'anti-immigrant BS' that the exit-ers were spouting because their kids schools and doctors surgeries were full. We all know plenty of people that were not the ignorant, racist bigots that the left likes to portray as those that voted for exit - but yet we did not do enough - so the blame lies with us as much as anyone else

Who are all these players that Hurst wasn't playing ?
at 20:43 27 Oct 2018

That are going to make such a difference

Nydam, Woofenden and Morris are not getting games on loan and Drinan has scored a single goal

Emmanuel seems to be doing OK but arguably right back is probably our strongest position depth wise with Spence and Donnacian + Crowe in the youths

Maybe Rowe or Folami might get a game but really don't think they are better than anyone we have in the squad already

Unless we can get Huws or Bishop back then I don't see what Lambert can change between no and January in terms of personnel

Does anyone feel sorry for Hurst ?
at 19:57 22 Sep 2018

He’s come into a job that he must have dreamt about getting over there past 5/6 years and he’s been given the opportunity to sign players that he thought were good enough to play further up the league

He was unfortunate that heads were turned on our three better players and that the players out injured last season -Huws, Bishop and Dozzell weren’t ready to go this season

A couple of dodgy red cards and a last min goal from Rotherham have cost us a couple of points and games like today and the Norwich game could easily have gone in our favour

I just wonder if he would be getting as much abuse if they had - if we’d have been sat on 8-10 points would there be as many calls for his head

I can’t say I was impressed with what I saw today but Bolton did to us what we did to Villa

Personally for the sake of the club I would love to see us get a couple of wins in the next 3-5 games so we could get a bit more positivity around here

Is it really all that bad
at 20:48 18 Sep 2018

Having watch the first half and then come on here I expected to see negativity but really - worst team ever ? Worse than anything Jewell or Keane put out - I don't think so

Few players have been poor - Spence, Ward and Chalobah have not been at the races but overall I don't think we have been dominated - they are just a good side who have played the same position since the start of the season and know what they are doing

Personally I would like to see Donacian move to RB with Kenlock in at LB - maybe Edun and Dozzell/Huws (when fit) into midfield but overall I like the shape and hope that Jackson and Harrison can get the chance to build up a partnership

Thoughts on the first half
at 13:11 2 Sep 2018

Team does look like they haven't played together - which they haven't

We look solid at the back - Pennington is a lump and does the right things defensively - Spence is defending well

Midfield - looking overrun - Graham and Edwards too wide - not massively impressed withe Graham in open play but corners have been good - think we'll swap him for Edun soon

Walters looks busy up front but no link up play with Jackson - really need these guys to get some games

Overall two poor mid table teams

Shows what a gulf there is between the haves and the have nots in this league

Going to be a long one for us this season - but I haven't seen anything yet that makes me think all is lost - next weeks loan signings - together with getting Huws and Dozzell fit will make a big difference

Desperately unlucky
at 17:51 25 Aug 2018

2nd week in a row that a poor refereeing decision has cost us

We are suffering from changing too many players all at once but there wasn't a great deal of choice - Webster, Waghorn and Garner all wanted to leave so we couldn't stand in their way

I think we were a bit naive with our forward purchases, I have seen enough in the two lads to think that they might still come good but we are missing someone with a bit of Championship wherewithal

Still not going to panic just yet - off the 5 games every single one of them could have had a different result (in our favour) with a bit of luck - we haven't been massively outplayed and I don't think we will be

Thought all of the new signings from the lower leagues looked very good today - considering they were up against a lot of seasoned Prem and Champ players - I know the situation helped but definitely signs that we have some good players there

High player turnover in todays game
at 16:50 21 Jul 2018

Was just looking back through the 'on this day' pages and noticed that of the players given numbers in 2014 - 4 years later only 4 of those players are still at the club and two of them are goalkeepers

I know that this is pretty common for most teams but I am sure if you did the same thing back in the 1970s, 80s and even 90s then that sort of turnover wouldn't be there

Question is, is it a good thing ?

Value on Matt Clarke - and do we have a sell on for him
at 16:02 27 Jun 2018

Have heard that Pompey fans think that they got the better of the deal with Webster and know Clarke has been linked to a move up from there as well

Will be interesting to see what he sells for - and Phil (or anyone) - do you know if we have a sell on clause for him ?

Surely a good chance for one of these two to step up now - Ipswich promoting yoof players is what the fans have been calling for and now we have a chance to do that

Klug thinks highly of the pair of them - as did MM

Couple with the fact that we now have the cash to purchase Nsiala then I am not all that unhappy with Webster moving on - pretty sure he would have gotten a decent pay rise out of it as well so can't deny him that
