Pre Match Thoughts - Mike



Another Late Late Show


Wow !!!! The ending to Tuesday nights game against Wimbledon had the 18,000+ fans all going hope in buoyant mood following another late show form the boys in Blue, after Chambo's header at Peterborough salvaged a point it was the turn of Norwood & Jackson to turn the game on it's head with Two goals in the last Ten minutes of what was a times a dour and dull effort from Town. In truth the opening hour was even worse than dour, it was dreadful from a Town point of view, I think it is fair to say that the boss got pretty much everything wrong from the kick off, the formation had most scratching their heads as we resorted to One up front, the personnel too seemed a bit peculiar and the tactics on the pitch seemed to be playing right into Wimbledon's hands so when they grabbed a lead just before half time the writing really was on the wall as I just did not see us scoring such was the lethargy in our play. As has been said we weren't passing the ball, the Fullbacks were just not dynamic enough and were failing to get forward to support the attack, the Midfield too was very laboured and created little although once again Downes & Skuse did well but the creative part of the team was found wanting.

All too often in recent times Town managers have been accused of never having a plan B but on this occasion I think we can say the boss corrected his errors and the switch to 4-4-2 along with the substitutions worked a treat as we looked so much better in the final third of the game and really took it to them, finally we wore them down as first Norwood and then Jackson sent the home faithful into raptures and the saying it's not how you start but how you finish was never more apt, the celebrations as Kayden Jackson fired home the winner were incredible and so loud, they seemed to go and on, and to get over 18,000 for a night game against Wimbledon confirms that Town fans are really buying into what Lambert and co are trying to do and I do think that by and large there is still a togetherness among most of the fans etc.

I think prior to the game not many fans were exactly jumping up and down at the loan signing of Anthony Georgiou from Spurs but man he changed the game, his direct running at the Wimbledon defence caused them problems, he has good feet, good speed and a good delivery and looks a real coup, the fact he had only arrived the day before and so had little time to get to know his team mates augers well and I think we have another really good loan signing on our hands if first impressions are anything to go by. Much has been said about the lack of transfer activity and the usual moans from the usual suspects have been very much aired due to lack of spending but for the additions of Georgiou, Garbutt, Holy, Vincent-Young and now Will Keane is actually very good business indeed given that we've spent very little, add to that the impending returns of Nolan, Nsiala, Huws, and in time Bishop, Lankester, Sears and I really do think we have a very strong squad for League One, for me it is capable of a top Two finish so it could well be an exciting few months ahead.


Crisis Club Up Next.....


Next up for Town is a trip to crisis club Bolton Wanderers and the fact the game is on is nothing short of a miracle, already hit with a Twelve point deduction Bolton are now facing another deduction on top due to having their midweek game called off, apparently to safeguard the wellbeing of their young players who are now faced with the responsibility of making up the nucleus of the team, last weekend there was only Three senior players fit and available, the rest were kids and the 0-5 thrashing by Tranmere was hardly a surprise. As if things could not get any worse, at the time of writing their manager Phil Parkinson and his assistant have resigned leaving them pretty much as a rudderless ship, it really could not get any worse. I think it would be foolish for anyone not to expect a Town win here, there is never a bye in football but surely this is as close as you are likely to get to one !! I think Town will win and it would be nice to boost our goal difference just a tad but this is Ipswich Town remember so it will be a 1-0 win with a 95th minute winner.



The Opposition – Bolton Wanderers



Image



The club was founded by the Reverend Thomas Ogden, the schoolmaster at Christ Church in 1874 as Christ Church F.C. It was initially run from the church of the same name on Deane Road, Bolton, on the site where the Innovation factory of the University of Bolton now stands. The club left the location following a dispute with the vicar, and changed its name to Bolton Wanderers in 1877. The name was chosen as the club initially had a lot of difficulty finding a permanent ground to play on, having used three venues in its first four years of existence.

Bolton were one of the 12 founder members of the Football League, which formed in 1888. Having remained in the Football League since its formation, Bolton have spent more time in the top flight (Premier League/old First Division) than out of it.

The period before and after the First World War was Bolton's most consistent period of top-flight success as measured by league finishes, with the club finishing outside the top 8 of the First Division on only two occasions between 1911–12 and 1927–28. In this period Bolton equalled their record finish of third twice, in 1920–21 and 1924–25.

On 28 April 1923, Bolton won their first major trophy in their third FA Cup final, beating West Ham United in the first ever Wembley FA Cup final. They followed this up with two further FA Cup Final victories in 1926 & 1929.

From 1935 to 1964, Bolton enjoyed an uninterrupted stay in the top flight.

The years of the Second World War saw most of the Wanderers' playing staff see action on the front, a rare occurrence within elite football, as top sportsmen were generally assigned to physical training assignments, away from enemy fire. However, 15 Bolton professionals, led by their captain Harry Goslin, volunteered for active service in 1939, and were enlisted in the 53rd Bolton Artillery regiment. Only Goslin would not return from the war.

On 9 March 1946, the club's home was the scene of the Burnden Park disaster, which at the time was the worst tragedy in British football history. 33 Bolton Wanderers fans were crushed to death, and another 400 injured, in an FA Cup quarter-final.

Bolton Wanderers have not won a major trophy since 1958, when they overcame Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium.

While Bolton finished 4th the following season, the next 20 years would prove to be a fallow period. The club suffered relegation to the Second Division in 1963–64, and were then relegated again to the Third Division for the first time in their history in 1970–71. This stay in the Third Division lasted just two years before the club were promoted as champions in 1972–73. Hopes were high at Burnden Park in May 1978 when Bolton sealed the Second Division title and gained promotion to the First Division. However, they only remained there for two seasons before being relegated, and then slipped back into the 3rd Division at the end of the 1982/83 season.

Bolton failed to win promotion in the 1983–84 season, and would remain in the Third Division for another three seasons. In 1986 Nat Lofthouse was appointed President of the football club, a position he would hold until his death on 15 January 2011. At the end of the 1986–87 season, Bolton Wanderers suffered relegation to the Fourth Division for the first time in their history, but won promotion back to the Third Division at the first attempt.

Bolton reached the Premiership in 1995 in the Division One play-off Final. The same year Bolton progressed to the League Cup Final, but were defeated by Liverpool. Bolton were bottom for virtually all of the 1995–96 Premiership campaign and were relegated.

The club won promotion back to the Premiership at the first attempt thanks to a season in which they achieved 98 league points and 100 goals in the process of securing the Division One championship. Unfortunately yet again, Bolton were relegated after only one season in the top flight. This season also marked the club's departure from Burnden Park to the Reebok Stadium.

In 2000–01 Bolton were promoted back to the Premiership after winning the play-off final. Bolton struggled in the following two seasons, but survived in the Premiership.

Bolton reached the League Cup final in 2004, but lost to Middlesbrough. Nevertheless, the club finished eighth in the league, at the time the highest finish in their Premiership history.

In 2005 Bolton finished sixth in the league, thus earning qualification for the UEFA Cup for the first time in their history. Between 2003–04 and 2006–07, Bolton recorded consecutive top-eight finishes. Bolton survived in the 2009–10 season as they finished 14th with 39 points. This secured a tenth successive top flight campaign for Bolton.

On 13 May 2012, Bolton Wanderers were relegated to the Championship by one point on the last day of the season.

The Championship season started badly for Bolton, with only three wins in ten league matches and a second round exit from the League Cup following a loss at Crawley Town, Bolton sacked manager Owen Coyle on 9 October 2012. Fourteen days later Dougie Freedman joined the club as manager, who guided them to a 7th place finish at the conclusion of the season.

Although Freedman made a number of signings for the 2013/14 campaign, Bolton ended the season firmly mid-table, with the expectations of another promotion push not met.

The 14/15 season started similarly, failing to win any of their first 6 games and only one of the first ten. Freedman left the club on 3 October 2014 by mutual consent, with Neil Lennon taking the helm.

In December 2015, Bolton, who were £172.9 million in debt, were handed a winding-up petition from HM Revenue and Customs over unpaid taxes, and a transfer embargo for the following month's window. On 18 January 2016, the club avoided an immediate winding-up order after their case was adjourned until 22 February to give it time to either close a deal with a potential buyer or raise sufficient short-term funds from asset sales.

On 9 April 2016, Bolton confirmed their relegation to the third tier for the first time since 1993. Lennon was removed from his position for the final few games of the season, replaced by Academy manager Jimmy Phillips.

The financial situation was somewhat improved as a takeover bid by Dean Holdsworth's Sports Shield was successful.

The 2016-2017 season provided some much-needed respite for beleaguered BWFC fans, as the club successfully achieved promotion from League One at the first attempt. New manager Phil Parkinson was instrumental in this, working despite an ongoing transfer embargo and ownership disputes between Holdsworth and Ken Anderson. Wanderers finished their first season back in the Championship in 21st place, avoiding relegation by 2 points.

Throughout the 2018–19 Championship season Bolton were faced with ongoing financial difficulties. Following the collapse of the permanent signing of on-loan striker Christian Doidge, Forest Green Rovers commenced legal action over lost earnings. In February 2019, Bolton were again issued a winding-up petition by HMRC which was subsequently adjourned, first until April, and then again until the end of the season as their search for a new owner continued. The financial difficulties affected the football operations with the training ground temporary closing in March 2019 and games against Ipswich, Middlesbrough and Aston Villa being threatened with postponement or being played behind closed doors as the local council Safety Advisory Group (SAG) threatened to revoke the stadium safety certificate. The Bolton Whites Hotel, owned by Ken Anderson, was also issued with a winding-up petition in March 2019. The team was relegated back to League One in April after a 23rd place finish. In a further development on 26 April, the home match against Brentford was called off by the English Football League 16 hours before kick off after Bolton's players, supported by the Professional Footballers' Association, refused to play until they had received their unpaid wages. On 3 May the Brentford game was cancelled by the EFL and a 1-0 result and 3 points awarded to Brentford.

By May the club had collapsed into administration due to a £1.2m unpaid tax bill. Five days later Fildraw appointed administrators from insolvency firm David Rubin and Partners. In accordance with league rules on administration, Bolton will be required to start the 2019–20 season with minus 12 points. On 14 May it was reported that some non-playing staff were forced to use food bank donations from local businesses and a local Championship club, believed to be Preston North End, as Bolton had not paid them for April's work.

Phil Parkinson resigned today so they will be under Caretaker Manager for this weekend I assume

Marko's Caption Contest - THE DON CUP



Must say, the standard in the 2019/20 DON CUP competition is second to none. Some real funny stuff. Doing a “Paul Lambert” this week and tinkering with the “formation”! Past few weeks have been individual players / managers and it’s been hilarious. Going to see if today’s picture lives up to those other pictures successes. Must say though, captions like the Jack Ross caption with him looking reflective in his mood were hilarious.

Anyway, first league table will be in next weeks preview.

Ok, “THE IPSWICH TOWN SUPPORTERS”, let’s see some good tits captions.

It is just awful to see a proud club like Bolton falling apart. It puts our recent travails into real perspective.

Bolton's misfortune is our opportunity for three more points. We haven't been great for the last couple of matches but we are picking up points. The season is coming along nicely. 3-0 to ITFC.

The Reverend Thomas, and his wife, Hilda will be spinning in their graves with all this Bolton misfortune.

Another great preview..... actually just finding out that it was an 18K + attendance at PR for Dons on a Tuesday night? That’s great stuff 👍

The good feeling amongst the Ipswich fans will almost certainly turn sour if this isn’t a win. Not only a win, but a real convincing one. And Lambert will most certainly be in ruthless mode and be out to have it won by HT.
Predict 0-3 HT, 1-4 FT..., giving Bolton a goal because I think my 95 year old granny can get down quicker than Holy.
Now have visions of my granny “going down” ....... NO! Stop it.

So we just need to give the youngsters of Bolton the respect they deserve and play at 100%.

Give them a good footballing lesson, hold nothing back and see them off soundly.

Minimum of 4 goals please.

Bit of a cliche thing to say, but can see us making hard work of this one. Even if you trying and guard against complacency, it's hard not to go to bed the night before and expect an easier game. Also if you go out there with the mentality to try and stick 4 or 5 past them, then you get frustrated even earlier waiting for that first goal. Could be an interesting little test of Lambert's management!

I’ve been thinking the same. The last few years has left a few scares but I keep telling myself things will be different this season. The team defo has to keep focused and not take their foot off the gas if they take the lead, just be relentless and show no mercy. It would be nice to get a lead then rest a few later in the game.

Every vote is for an away team win, there's confidence for you.

Went with it too. The opposition have fallen away badly in recent time, you go back to the 1950's for the last time Bolton achieved anything of recognition, feel genuine sympathy for one of the founder members of the league and the fans included to see the direction the club has taken. Lofthouse was a player of tremendous caliber, it's almost kind arguably their most recognized and accomplished name is not alive to see the plight of his team.

Won't participate in a feeding frenzy if there's a duplication of the last game. Realize we're also a team with issues that has lost it's way over time and best course of action being, to address each game as it comes and not plan too far ahead.

Bolton 1 Ipswich 3

PL must take this game very seriously and not under estimate a weak Bolton playing squad. They did not play in mid week so they will be fresh. They are young so they will play without fear, they will raise there game because they are at home and playing Town. So we don't want PL trying to be clever with his tactics and the players he picks. Yes Bolton are there for the taking but we all know how many times Town have come unstuck while playing supposedly inferior opposition. So lets go there with the strongest side possible and get the 3 points and hopefully a few goals and a clean sheet.
