Ipswich Town manager Paul Lambert must be resigned to life in League One next season, with the Tractor Boys 13 points from safety with eight games remaining.
As he looks ahead to the next campaign, Lambert has seemingly identified Tranmere hotshot James Norwood as a potential target having scored 25 goals in 36 appearances this season, according to a report in the EADT.
So if Ipswich sign Norwood, could you see them bouncing back to the Championship at the first attempt?
“They might bounce back, but not because of Norwood.
“Harrison is a good League One striker. Nolan is a good midfielder at that level.
“One player won’t do it for them, no matter how many he scored this season.”
“Norwood would be a good addition at Ipswich but it is impossible to say he’d solve all their problems.
“Recruitment has been bad at Portman Road over the last 12 months and that squad was never going to survive in the Championship.
“I fear it’d struggle in League One and would need some serious work.”
“He’d fire them back into the Championship.
“Norwood is a proven goalscorer in the lower leagues and would be an excellent signing for Ipswich if they were to be relegated.
“I have no doubt in saying he would play a starring role if they were to win promotion back into the Championship at the first time of asking.”
“They would have as good a chance as anyone expected to battle at the top of the table next year.
“Norwood is finding the back of the net for fun for Tranmere, and there is not much difference between the third and fourth tier.
“He could well be the man to get Ipswich back to the Championship if they were to secure his signature in the summer.”
