Another solid nil performance in points and goals, despite the usual hyperbole paper talk .

It’s like one of those old films on telly every Christmas and Bank Holiday. You can’t resist watching but know the plot off by heart.
Sadly, Town have become predictable and Lambert hasn’t been able to rectify the problems that dogged predecessor Paul Hurst.
Please note - There is a health warning if watching the box set , and all NHS numbers do apply !

|Was justice done ? |
at 13:34 11 Mar 2019
After being attacked on the pitch at the weekend by a member of the public, Villa player Grealish later scores the winner, perhaps some justice was done on that score on the pitch, but what punishment off it ?

|Hall of Fame . |
at 18:36 26 Feb 2019
Note that the latest inductees into the clubs Hall of Fame are two great players Ian Allinson and Steve Foley.
Remember that the club failed to give Allinson a improved contract so he become a free agent, what would he have been worth with a fee ?
Had a brief encounter with Steve Foley, in the Ipswich/ Witton area several years ago while he was on their coaching staff, my manager was not impressed while we talked U's, made my morning !!
Someone told me he recently had been in hospital, so wish him well for the future .
|It's a sin . |

Deliberately fouling players who have gained a advantage through skill or get into positive positions to score are continually being prevented by the act of taking one fo the team, which usually results in a booking to the player.
Twice in the second half within minutes on Saturday the vistors took one for the team, this was also present in yesterday's League Cup final.
With only a yellow card at present being the punishment for this practice, most team have gained a advantage in foul play.
So it's time too go down the rugby route, booking AND TEN MINUTES IN THE SIN BIN to give a advantage to the side disadvantaged.

at 08:59 30 Jan 2019
Read on club website the passing of Arthur Turner. A impressive record of 100 goals in 164 appearances for the club .
But also served in the RAF as an air-gunner in the Second World War, Arthur was on board a Wellington Bomber plane that was shot down in the Bay of Biscay in 1943. The sole survivor of the crash, he was rescued at sea.
Seems like a story of a comic book hero, but so real to some . RIP .

Great emphases has been made lately on the fact that the club only have the twelfth biggest wages budget in the division ( although ex- academy players are not included ).
Having just played and been defeated by a club which had two recent big budget loan signings, does money talk or has the club now lost it's mojo in playing above its weight /BMI ?
|Going nowhere fast 2019|
at 18:17 5 Jan 2019
U's yet again failed to dispatch a relegation threatened side, to keep there own, going nowhere fast promotion hopes alive. Despite the noises from Head Coach John McG, nothing much changes and the reaction from the previous match at Crawley was to go 3-1 down after taking the lead.
The second half onslaught resulted in a penalty, but little in quality in the places that mattered.
On paper the squad is good enough, but the management seem incapable of inspiring those he regularly choses.
at 14:46 25 Nov 2018
At this present time pre table Christmas, the U's are in third position, leaders of the pack chasing front runners Lincoln and MK . Looking over there shoulder a queue longer than Ipswich / Harwich Rd roundabout upgrade has amassed .
So are we well placed to pounce or is the excellent home record only keeping us at lofty heights ?
No cup completions to distract can we maintain the push or will we get swallowed up .
Like all teams we look better going forward than defending, which is unconvincing especially while dropping deep with aerial threats .
We need to show that we are not a one man outfit while Norris is unavailable, and the management can cover all situations required.
Last gasp points gathering in games could make a huge say in the final league positions, something we need to improve upon .

Seems that the Chairman Ben Purkiss has suggested that EO Gordon Taylor should step down. Comments have been made regards Taylor's salary, pay gap between lower league players and several ex players have voiced his support.
