Key for Ipswich Town to take some form with them down into League One
Que será, será, whatever will be, will be. We’re going to Shrewsbury....oh dear. I have to say, like many other Tractor Boys, I just can’t wait for this nightmare season to be over.
Just as things started to improve and a light at the end of the tunnel began to appear, Saturday’s 2-0 loss to Hull City brought us crashing back down to earth.
Paul Lambert’s men never really got going against The Tigers and the dull atmosphere inside Portman Road was considerably different to that of previous weeks. It meant it was another disappointing afternoon under the Scotsman’s reign which has got many thinking, is he really the man to take Ipswich Town forward?
I think we should definitely keep the former Aston Villa man at the helm for next season. The football on show has changed dramatically to that of Hurst and McCarthy and I do believe we have a squad, albeit with a few new strikers needed, capable of competing in the third tier of English football.
‘Lambo’ has reintroduced the feel-good factor back in Suffolk and I can’t help feel that with a full pre-season and transfer window under his belt, he could create something special and ensure a swift return to the Championship. On the flip side, some Town fans have questioned Lambert’s tactics and said that although he talks a good talk, the walking isn’t being done, with results on the pitch simply not good enough.
His peculiar post-match comments on Saturday haven’t helped and a link to former club Celtic has been circulating the rumour-mill.
Our fate has been sealed for some time, but to have any hope of bouncing back into the Championship, it’s vital we take some kind of form with us.
Whether it’s Paul Lambert or somebody new in charge for the likes of Blackpool and Fleetwood, they have a real task ahead to ensure the blue half of East Anglia have something to cheer again.
