Paul Lambert admits frustration regarding Ipswich Town situation



Ipswich Town boss Paul Lambert has admitted the club may need to sell players in order to raise funds for any further new signings.

The Tractor Boys have added four players to their ranks this summer, but Lambert has now revealed his frustration with the club for not signing the players he wants.

Nine players have departed Portman Road since the club’s relegation to League One was confirmed, which has left Lambert’s squad looking thin ahead of their season opener against Burton Albion.

Luke Garbutt, Tomas Holy, James Norwood and Will Norris have all arrived at Ipswich in the off-season, but the club do have time to make further additions with the window open until September 2 for League One sides.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Lambert claimed he has not been given any money to spend on players and said he did not know what has happened to any fees received.

He claimed that Bristol Rovers have received all the club received from Portsmouth for the services of striker Ellis Harrison, while he cannot account for the sell-on fees received for former players Tyrone Mings and Matt Clarke following their moves to Brighton and Aston Villa respectively.

Championship Picks

The verdict

This is another worrying update from Lambert which suggests his relationship with the Ipswich board is currently frosty at best due to the club’s transfer activity.

The board should not be expecting Ipswich to cruise back into the Championship, as there have been so many departures at the club since relegation last season.

I think Lambert has made these admissions in an attempt to encourage the board to free up funds for further transfers, while he will also want the fans to know that he is not at fault.

It sounds like there are major problems at Portman Road at present which does not bode well at all as they begin life in League One.
