Has the team been announced yet, can't get the requisite information on who starts. Maybe some at the game already, you know, aware of who we're going to field today.

So what’s that a 4-4-2?

Nsiala in - Wilson dropped. Downes on the bench. Edwards and Judge our wide, I guess. I’d prefer Downes and Nolan as a central midfield partnership.

Freddie’s on the bench.

It’s released an hour before kick-off. On TWTD’s forum they show the official line-up via Twitter.

Great to see Freddie back. I too would prefer Wilson to Toto who is clearly the more reliable defender and has simply performed better this season. Flynn on the bench is also puzzling.

However - COYBs!

I see there are rumours Flynn Downes may be on his way to Fulham, hence not starting. Really hope not

That’s not good news at all.

Sounds like Gillingham are all over Ipswich today. 6 shots to nil, 2 on target.

We have looked like a pub team for the majority of first half.

Midfield absolutely not existent, no service towards both Jackson and Norwood and hoofball is what we are mainly doing.

Need a drastic improvement after the break as it's been unacceptable so far.

We look so so poor. ( Am watching on iplayer)

No midfield presence in the game at all
Strikers cast adrift and totally unsupported - isolated
Defence/ just waiting for a penalty to be given, no communication apparent between any of them.

No leaders out there. No cohesion. Utterly disappointing performance so far . Not a as single player worthy of praise.


I wouldn’t give Judge or Edwards a place in the side if they were the last fit players in this huge squad . Utter garbage the pair of them !!

Totally disjointed team performance so far . I’ll be answer if we get anything out of this .

Promotion? Based on this performance and many others prior to today , forget it !

What I have just watched on ifollow is nothing short of embarrassing. Hoof ball. Defence including goalkeeping all over the place. How we are not losing is amazing. Judge sh*te Donacien sh*te Toto sh*te. Nolan, Edwards clueless front two no service.

I don’t think Downes would even be in the bench if he was leaving ........ not to say he’s not leaving because the way we are going I can see him and Woolfie both leaving I’m not too distant future .


Lambert is just creating his own problems as far as I can see it .

35 minutes of dross where we were second best in every department, nothing in Midfield at all, dodgy and hesitant in defence and a jittery as f*ck keeper, created hardly anything. Picked up final 10 mins and should have scored against the run of play. Says it all when Donacien looks just about the brightest Town player. We are starting to get some success down our Left side the longer the game went on. Level at the break is quite a result and to be fair we were against the elements which are awful. Big improvement needed.

Just part of the same slide marko I’m afraid . I think we’ve been well and truly sussed , and Lambert really doesn’t seem to know what he wants to do .

Just depressed myself looking at the League Table and seen we’re only 3 points clear of 8th.

How much we could do with a Freddie Sears goal .
