‘He never learns’ – Plenty of Ipswich fans react to Paul Lambert’s decision making last night

Ipswich Town supporters haven’t taken too lightly to Paul Lambert’s decision to deploy a plethora of young players in their Leasing.com Trophy clash with Colchester United.

Lambert’s side had already booked their place in the next round of the competition after wins over Gillingham and Tottenham Hotspur Under-21s.

Their 1-0 defeat to the Essex-based club, though, ensured that the Tractor Boys finished in second place behind their last opponents. This means that the side will face an away trip in the next round of the competition.

In the game, the likes of Brett McGavin and Lewis Gibbs made their debuts. Also, Tawanda Chirewa – at 16 years and 31 days – became the second youngest player in the Club’s history when he appeared as a substitute late on in the second half.

In turn, though, Lambert’s youngsters lost the match after Ryan Clampin’s late strike proved to be the only difference between the two side. Lambert’s men managed just one shot on target all game at the Colchester Community Stadium.

On the final whistle, the club released a graphic on Twitter, confirming the defeat.

It would be fair to assume that the many of the supporters were unhappy with the tactics their manager deployed.
