We should of won today if statistics are anything to go by. But when you have a liability in your team then I'm afraid that's what happens. Wilson should never of been dropped he is a better defender. Then again so is my missus. :x

Sunderland were there for the taking in the first half.

They Got back into the match, but every chance we would have hung on if Chambers hadn’t f*cked around.

Based on that second half performance I can’t have too many complaints with the eventual result.

If Chambers thinks he can keep on making these mistakes and still be a shoe-in I hope Lambert puts him straight. It’s happening too often and he’s the skipper.

Sucks. Particularly as it seems Town were the better team. Here’s hoping that scoreline doesn’t come back to haunt us further on down the line

With the way we struggle to score goals the result is no surprise playing against the draw specialists of League 1. Seven Town shots on target really should have produced a second goal so it will be interesting to see if we missed any sitters.

Last season Sunderland drew 19 of their 46 games the most in League 1 so this was always on the cards unless we scored at least twice.

1 - 0 is a win... not a draw. Simple ... don’t give away silly goals.

I wouldn’t say there were many clear-cut chances in the game. 1-0 could have won it.

Yes, should’ve been three points. And any more match stats like that for Sunderland, and Jack will be the first managerial casualty.

Must’ve been a mammoth mistake by Luke, seems overwhelming criticism on here and other places. Hopefully get a look at that later.

Just trying to shield the ball into touch, but misjudged the length to the deadball line or over-estimated his own strength. Got robbed schoolboy fashion and a simple pass into the area and finish. Should have just belted it into touch. Mick taught him better.

The point I was making Tang is that Sunderland usually score at least one away goal which means we would most likely need two to be confident of a win.

Ok just home.

The good the bad and the ugly....

Good - Rowe , what a player and he had an awesome first half. Woolfenden had a great game, solid and made no mistakes apart from ranging too far forward one time which put us under pressure. Doancien looked fine as well. Lankaster worked hard as did Norwood but they both need a goal to kick start their season. Garbutt was awesome and I truly hope he isn’t too badly injured,

Bad - wtf was chambers doing? I was shouting to pass it back to holy, but he made a schoolboy error.

Ugly - judge couldn’t deliver a f**king pizza. Why he was taking corners I will never know. He needs to get game fit quickly and improve.

We need defensive cover , as chambers is too liable to errors and I feel he thinks he needs to cover the whole back four. We need an old head next to him if he’s going to play.

4 from 6 is a decent start, but it should have been 6 from 6 today, so disappointed,

Definitely a tale of 2 halves for me.

First half we were in total control and should have been more than just 1 ahead.

2nd half we were poor, and in the end I thought that the draw was a fair result.

2 mistakes cost us today.

1st mistake was by PL - why change a defensive line-up that did not concede the previous game? Ridiculous decision which was rightly punished - I've said it before and I'll say it again, defensively Chambers is a liability. I don't care if he is a great bloke off the field - his priority is to defend and stop goals, not hand them on a plate to the opposition.

Biggest mistake though, was by ME. Should have taken the £450k for Judge. Cos what really changed the game was Judge. When he came on we lost our shape. He drifts all over the place and was defensive today in a lot of what he tried to do. Demanded every dead ball kick, and every delivery was poor at best. I'm not interested in those who say he should be played just behind the attack - he was given a job today and failed miserably. Sears was also played out of position for months, and has been mercilessly crucified by some on this forum, but at least he did what was asked of him. Should have got rid of Judge when we had the chance - he's bloody useless. How many goals has he scored for us?

Well that was a disappointing end to a day which promised so much, everything was geared up for it to be a good return to football at Portman Road after a Three month absence, last weeks win, a bumper crowd and the feelgood factor around the Town this week had built it up perfectly and to be fair it was all going to plan pretty well with an early Town strike from Luke Garbutt and a fair few other chances in a first half that should really have seen the points safe. What we didn't plan on was a horrendous error from captain Luke Chambers to gift them a point which in my opinion they didn't deserve.

For the second week running it was Town that started the brighter of the Two teams, pressing Sunderland and forcing them back, in the opening few minutes Town had the first of Two pretty decent penalty appeals but it was waived away, Jackson in fact being booked for diving, it was hard to tell from where I was at it was right up the other end. The wind was definitely causing both teams problems with any high ball holding up in the wind but it was Town who were playing against and yet had started much the brighter. Again as with last week we got ourselves a early lead with another strike from Luke Garbutt, the on loan Midfielder somehow firing home from the tightest of angles after finding the loose ball at his feet, it was just the start Town needed to calm any nerves and no more than we deserved. Following the restart it was still all Town with Garbutt firing a Freekick but it came to nothing, then a goal mouth scramble saw a couple more efforts from Town players (not sure who) either blocked or sent wide.

In Midfield Flynn Downes had again caught my eye and was playing some good stuff, winning plenty of ball, closing down, getting his tackles in generally spraying the ball around with confidence, all simple stuff but very very effective, at the back Luke Woolfenden had again started well and was solid but in turth the whole back Four were as Sunderland had offered nothing as an attacking force. The second Town penalty claim as Danny Rowe appeared to be fouled, this time it looked a very good shout but again the ref thought otherwise and actually penalised the Town man again. Town were really cranking up the pressure on the SDunderland defence and chances for Garbutt, Norwood (Twice) and Jackson all came and went begging.

Town's luck was to take a turn for the worse with Half time approaching as the effective Garbutt had to be replaced by Alan Judge, there was still time for Norwood to try his luck but again the striker was unable to find the target. It really had been all Town and we should really have been at least Two goals to the good while in the Town goal Holy really had been redundant for long spells.

Town kixked off the second half with the wind now at their backs but found it hard to get into the same kind of rhythm that they had enjoyed before the interval, Sunderland definitely looked more lively and were playing with a bit more tempo but again creating nothing, they did not look like they had anything in the armoury to trouble us. Chances had been at a premium since the restart but incredibly midway through the second period we gifted them the most ridiculous of goals, a harmless looking ball down our right appeared to be heading out with Chambers first to it to usher it out but he totally misread it and was dispossessed by a Sunderland forward who strode along the touchline before crossing to Gooch to was unmarked and he made no mistake as he slammed it home. It really was a mega howler from the captain and totally unnecessary, they just did not look capable of scoring and yet we gift them a goal.

Town had not been as dangerous going forward in the second half but Rowe and Norwood were still trying their luck to restore the lead but nothing was hitting the target. To be fair since the equaliser Sunderland had started to look the more likely but Town did look dangerous on the break. Several times we got ourselves into dangerous positions with Free kicks and corners and every damn time Judge's delivery was woeful, either over hit or looped in the air so it was easy to defend, I counted at least Four or Five. By now Dozzell had come on for Rowe and finally he took a corner which was much better and caused a degree of danger in the Sunderland box but it would not fall cleanly for a Town player to get a strike on it, Judge did have the final chance of the game but it was easily scooped up by the keeper to send it end in a frustrating draw.

For me it was a game we should have won, it should have been put to bed in the first Forty Five, so it's Two points dropped, you just cannot legislate for that kind of individual error and while I have always maintained Chambers is an asset as a captain and leader there is no way anyone can defend that kind of schoolboy error, beside him was Woolfenden, a kid who didn't put a foot wrong, you would maybe expect that type of thing from him as he learns but not your captain, too many more of them and Lambert may have a decision to make. Focusing on the positives though and the performance for the second week running of Flynn Downes had me purring at times, he ran the Midfield, nothing earth shattering but a good professional and effective performance, I cannot recall him misplacing a single pass, he sprayed it around with a confidence that was good to see, often linking up with Norwood for a quick exchange to set us off on another attack, he has started the season in top form, Norwood too worked his socks off again, he will be judged on goals but his game has so much more, Luke Woolfenden was again solid as was Garbutt until he had to go off and Donacien at RB did a lot of good stuff, Rowe was lively without the shots on target from last week while Jackson's movement, particularly in the first half created openings, he just needed a bit more composure with the final ball, Skuse in the centre put in a typical Skuse performance, no glitz but solid and dependable.

As annoying as it is not to have won I have to say if this is the best the League One has to offer then we are laughing cus we were better than them for much of the game, the first half was a mismatch but we just need to be more clinical, everyone said we had a tough start to the season so Four points is a decent start, the frustrating thing is it should be Six but we can head to Peterborough in confident mood, with nigh on Four Thousand Town fans making the journey it will feel like a home match.


Holy (6)......Little to do, must have got bored, no chance with the goal.

Kenlock (6)....Pretty solid and no real issues at the back but did not get forward as well as last week.

Woolfenden (7)... This lad has started the season well and looks a real find, didn't put a foot wrong, pick of the defence.

Chambers (5)...Oh dear Oh dear, Captain calamity won't need telling that wasn't good enough, aside from the rick he was solid.

Donacien (7)....I thought he defended well, had the better of his man for much of the game, still finds it tough to get forward much.

Garbutt (7)....Looked good again until picking up an injury, clearly has an eye for goal but works really hard too, likes to shoot !!! Will be missed.

Skuse (6)....Mr dependable had a very good second half when those around him were starting to tail off, overshadowed by Downes though.

Downes (8)...Another super performance from the youngster, for me he ran it at times and looks a real player, MOTM for the second week running.

Rowe (6)....Another decent effort from Rowe who was one of the bright spots before the break, we need to see more of his dead ball supply. Tracked back well at times.

Jackson (6).....Good movement in the opening half which caused them problems, just need a little bit more calmness in key areas.

Norwood (7).....Such a workhorse and chases everything, gets stuck in and had Three or Four efforts, just needs a goal to get him up and running.


SUBS :-

Judge (5)... I was disappointed TBH, terrible dead ball delivery time after time and he seems to be playing for Alan Judge at times rather than the team.

Dozzell (6)... One or Two good touches but not a lot of chance to impact on the game, does have a good corner in his locker though.

Roberts (5)....Only on for a couple of minutes and not sure he touched the ball.

Thanks as ever for the review Mike. :D

Four league 1 fixtures in August (Shrewsbury and Wimbledon at home, Bolton and Peterborough away) look like they have the potential to yield plenty of points for Town if the early table is any indication of quality. Here’s hoping we can be sitting in one of the top two slots going into September.

Great atmosphere today, but it does sort of feel like a defeat in someways especially the way we conceded. I am a fan of Chambers but you can’t defend the indefensible it was a poor mistake.

Judge did not have a great game, we either lost our shape as he came inside or lambert gave him a free roll. We looked so much better with a 4-4-2, Woolfenden played beyond his years and should hold down his place for all the league fixtures. He even had a great little run on the right wing!

I hope Lambert stays with 2 up top because Jackson and Norwood both look a handful and Jackson looks better for having Norwood around him. Norwood looked a little tired towards the end tbf.

Garbutt gave us great balance and hopefully his injury is not too bad.

Nice to hear all glowing comments as to how we played today as the match commentary was similarly encouraging. Yes 4 points after 2 games has exceeded my expectations however now I'm somewhat downbeat right now. It was probably an ideal time to play Sunderland while they are managed by Jack Ross. When I read their forum and see their fans' comments online it's clear how many of them want him to get sacked. Plenty of displeased Sunderland fans regarding Ross' tenure. If things maintain as they are at the moment for them they will get rid of him and probably pick up after appointing a new manager. Therefore given all circumstances today has to be classified as two points dropped.

What is particularly annoying for me is our continuity of gifting opposition goals, a continuity of stupid defensive, avoidable errors. And surprise, surprise today one was from Chambers. People keep fawning over him because he says things they want to hear in the interviews. All this crap that he is an inspirational leader and captain, he cares blah blah blah.....Yes I know that he cares but we don't benefit from that while he is on the pitch. He was one of the worst players in that relegated team last season and nothing changes. Great stuff off the pitch whereas on it he's an utter liability.

People will say there is no point in bashing Chambers and we should support him and get behind him because 'he is a great captain'. Yes we support the team but they perhaps don't realise that there will always be a mistake in him as long as he is on the pitch and we'll keep dropping points just because of his c*ck-ups. People were so pleased when his contract was extended last season, I was one of those wondering what was so exciting in that. Am I crucifying him? Yes, maybe but for the valid reasons and I will always be in the state of trepidation while he is in the team.

Excellent review and thanks for the time taken. Few little tweaks here and there and it sounds like things could go very well in this league. Hopefully Flynn Downes remains injury free for, if not the whole season, the majority of it. Like others have said, I can't understand the need to change the defence after the Burton game. Don't fix what isn't broken unless of course there were certain weaknesses that Lambert saw last week. Chambers certainly doesn't need the criticism after the first home game at PR......., tonight, he'll be wishing Lambo had left him out.

Luton Town now......., the League One clubs win v Championship clubs......., 3-1 ITFC @ Kenilworth Rd.

Some real positives for me today. Woolfenden, Skuse, Downes and Rowe all excellent. Bad mistake by Chambers but these things happen. Apart from that I thought he had a decent enough game as he played on the left which isn't natural.for him.

Holy looked poor in my opinion. Slow to come out, punched balls he should have caught, and fumbled one late on. Looked very unsure of himself. It's only one game but if he carries on like that I think he'll be replaced soon, I expect the other keeper will get a chance on Tuesday.

I thought Sunderland tried to pass the ball through us whereas we were more long ball. However we kept them at arm's length and apart from the gift they never really threatened. If we can keep the youngsters fit we should hold our own this season......which is better than holding someone else's.

Doancien looked fine as well. Lankaster worked hard as did Norwood but they both need a goal to kick start their season. Garbutt was awesome and I truly hope he isn’t too badly injured,

Ugly - judge couldn’t deliver a f**king pizza. Why he was taking corners I will never know. He needs to get game fit quickly and improve.

We need defensive cover , as chambers is too liable to errors and I feel he thinks he needs to cover the whole back four. We need an old head next to him if he’s going to play.

4 from 6 is a decent start, but it should have been 6 from 6 today, so disappointed,
Not sure I agree with that because Chambers is the ‘old head’. That’s his job - to go about his own defensive duties and to organise others around him as the most senior player. I mean if we brought in an experienced James Collins type then you shouldn’t pick him in defence just to nurse-maid Chambers. And we’d have to drop Woolfenden to accommodate Chambers + old head defender.

I really felt this pre-season Lambert should have made the call to hand the captaincy to someone else. Take the burden of Chambers and let him focus on his own game. Except there are very few candidates. I’m starting to wonder how much the importance of the on-field captaincy really is. A lot of gesticulating and shouting but we still seem to gift goals away every game.

My point was, that I feel chambers takes too much on his shoulders. I think he would be better defensively if he was next to an experienced man. That’s not to say he shouldn’t be dropped, just that I think he would play better next to a Collins or Wilson type player.
I can’t see woolfenden playing every game, he’s just too young, so we will need a new defender in ASAP otherwise chambers will have to play more often than not.

Just remember Nsiala is back in September and we’ve brought in Wilson. Not sure we have the luxury of stockpiling CB’s. Not sure we’ll go for another CB - maybe a FB and a striker.... if we’re lucky. There should be competition for CB places when Toto’s fit.

The thing is rightly or wrongly I just dont see PL ever dropping Chambers, unless of course this happens again and again. I always thought Chambo and Nsiala would be our recognised defensive pair but young Woolfy is certainly playing himself into contention, I'm not a great believer in the too young to play every game theory.

That error certainly doesn't get any better the more you look at it, I thought Jackson looked better on the highlights than in real time.

Ando - Judge did not have a great game, we either lost our shape as he came inside or lambert gave him a free roll.

PL certainly is generous isn't he? Free beers for the fans and now free rolls for the players! 😬

Highlights for those that haven't seen them.....

That error certainly doesn't get any better the more you look at it, I thought Jackson looked better on the highlights than in real time.
Oh
My
God
:shock:

Why? Put it out for the throw in. There probably wasn’t even any shout from Holy or anyone else because it was blatantly obvious what to do. Chambo, note to yourself; must do better.
Or if Derick is writing the note; “must go get yerself to f#%k, you useless #%*^ing &#%t.

And now watched Jackson’s “dive” four times. That’s a penalty. Refs making a Cnut of it first game at PR? No surprise there.

Jackson was picked up for everything by the ref. I don’t think the ref liked him very much
