Another loss for Ipswich today, they're now down to 3rd albeit still with a game in hand. Apparently there was a "Lambert Out" banner in the Ipswich away end today. 

They need to get reality check there. 

Maybe their fans thought it would be easy to get promote from League 1. Speaking to my Ipswich mate, He says some fans are expecting too much. He thinks Lambert has mess around unnecessary with formation at times instead of keeping it simple. Says they need 2 or 3 new signings in January 

Wycombe and Ipswich both lost today

But they didnt need a reality check when they wanted McCarthy out for "only" having them in mid table in the Championship?!

Ipswich back to the top of League 1 despite going two months without a win between 9th November and 11th January. Rotherham also up to second now. Ainsworth's Wycombe have fallen to third after three defeats in their last five. Bolton 18 points off safety with 22 games left to play.

A lot of hubris on the Bolton forum that they will ‘piss League 2’.

Sounds like they still don’t have a pot to piss in and other club’s that on the surface, at least, are too big for that league -say Plymouth and Bradford seem to spend a lot of time there.

Bet Ipswich fans don't want Lambert sack now do they like only a couple/few weeks ago. I noticed that Lambert got a new contract at that time from the club owner. 

Rotherham have put a good run together until yesterday. 

Sunderland are now in playoffs after a poor start under Parkinson. 

Its wide open who gets top 2 and playoffs now

Think Bolton Fans need to careful what they expect. Probably will have to sign most of new squad next summer for the season/. Plus is Hill staying as manager? 

Bradford problems are the amount of different managers they had and they need to put a plan in place. Still in Playoffs.

Very tight division League One. Sunderland and Ipswich are in decent positions for promotion despite both having horrendous November and December periods. I still reckon Sunderland will get automatic. Coventry very well placed but for me should be refused promotion unless they resolve their stadium issues.

How do people think Grayson has done at Blackpool? 

Not very well. Good start but his true colours are coming through. Bang average manager.  The guy struggles to speak properly so god knows how he gets a dressing room of young lads on board.

I think Blackpool fans are asking a lot to expect to be much better off than they are at the moment. First season under new ownership and management, finally rid of the Oystons. Most of them going to games now were boycotting last year, now moaning about Grayson and their league position. Were in League Two with Oyston only a couple of years ago.

Nowhere near as big as Sunderland, Portsmouth, Ipswich etc. who are pushing for promotion. Not sure on what basis they think they should be higher than they are.

I think Blackpool shouldn't be in the playoffs picture under the new ownership and will take time for Grayson to build his squad. They got rid of Oyston finally cant expect miracles in the 1st few months of a new ownership reign. 

He deffo knows how to get promotion from this league

They won’t like it, and they still think they have been hard done to but for the rest of the EFL, Bolton being relegated again is probably what needed/needs to happen.

And still it does not bode well for Rovers because we have them or Bury as precedents...

Apart from the 4 promotions suggest he isn't without ability. That's 2 or 3 than a number of the incumbents we have had of late...

Morecambe gave themselves a huge help last night. Now 4 points clear of non-league trap door.

Stanley have hit a worrying dip in form though.

Paul Hurst sacked at Scunthorpe 

Been a massive downward spiral for him since he took the Ipswich job.

The job he did at Shrewsbury was his peak. He missed it up big time at Ipswich with his crap attitude

The Ipswich job was undoubtedly a tough one but his confidence became arrogance, similar to the likes of David Moyes when he went to Man Utd, Hurst thought the methods he used to be successful at a smaller club would seamlessly transfer to a bigger club. He got rid of and/or alienated key staff left over from the McCarthy era, was never really accepted by the Ipswich players who particularly hated his assistant Chris Doig, had too much faith in lower league players making the step up without the support of more experienced players to guide them, and ended up leaving the club in a much, much worse state than he found it in. 

He's young so theoretically can still recover but his stock is at an all time low at this point.
