|Lambert: Hughes and Other Youngsters Have Got a Chance But Have a Long Way to Go|
I understand the point Lambert is making about not pushing the youngsters to much or too soon, but it shows how football has changed from our glory days.
The likes of Burley, Wark, Brazil, Osman and Butcher et al, established themselves in the team very soon after making their debuts - and did so at the top level. (I exclude Beattie from this list as he was simply on a totally different level).
Perhaps the answer is that above players were very much superior in their own ways to our current promising crop of 17, 18 and 19 year olds, but it just shows how the attitudes towards bringing on the youngsters has changed across football.
This is not a grumble, just an observation really.
|Wilson: I'd Love to Stay at Town|
I certainly would urge the club to agree an extention to his contract.
He has very much exceeded fans (modest) expectations and has rarely put a foot wrong in all the games he has played. He's still a good age for a defender and seems a very sensible, reliable character who wants to stay so...just do it Town.
|Jackson: I've Only One Target This Season|
I like his selfless attitude very much. He is now enjoying his football, is starting to score goals and seems to appreciate he will need to keep up his standards to keep his regular place in the team.
He clearly returned to pre-season very fit and with an excellent attitude to kick on and I think this has played is a big part of his early season form. With his three goals boosting his confidence lets hope he can kick on and justify the massive fee (for us) we paid to bring him here.
|Beattie Statue Campaign Hits Target|
Surely there cannot be many other clubs in the country (not least a relatively small town based club), with three statues outside of their ground to reflect great manangers and players of the past.
Everyone involved in organising this tribute and donating towards it's cost should be very proud of the part they have played. I can't wait to see it and I'm sure that goes for all Town fan's.
|Norris Loan Signing Confirmed|
What we want to hear now is that Harry Wright has gone out on a loan to a team playing at a decent level, to gain experience playing the senior game week in and week out, as he is still an important part of our future all being well.
|Crowe Signs First Pro Deal Ending Months of Speculation|
This is really good news. He appeared, as far as we supporters could tell, to be stalling on signing a contract for a while and I expected him to be off, so well done to club and player in getting this sorted at long last.
A nice long contract too, which should help protect his value if any big clubs do come calling in the future.
|Town Confirm Lambert and Staff Will Stay Even If Blues Go Down|
This is exactly what I have been longing to hear. This is the most positive I have felt for years about our longer term future. How ironic is that, given that we are stranded at the bottom of the league. It's madness but true and it seems reading the above comments that many other supporters share this view which is brilliant.
Shorter team, relegation is still odds on but we have a little hope to cling on to with three points last week. We fans must now show our support in response to this statement and turn up to as many remaing games as possible and make as much noise as possible to give us the best chance of helping the team escape the bottom three.

|Harrison: We're Playing With No Fear|
More evidence, if it were needed, how things were very wrong with Hurst and his henchman.
Now with Lambert we have a chance. It will still be difficult, we we have a chance and that is something we can all hold on to for the second half of this season.
|Drinan's Sutton Loan Ended|
He has a contract for Town which runs until 2021, a year longer than Lankaster!! He must have impressed MM that's all I can say!!
|Bart: Reading Assist No Fluke!|
Very good news that Bart has immediately struck up an excellent personal and professional relationship with Walker. Hopefully its now onwards and upwards for Bart again.
|Town Confirm Lambert Appointment|
The right manager for the position we are now in, and the best man currently realistically available
Please, lets all get behind Lambert and start the move up the table.
|Arsenal and Spurs Linked With Renewed Dozzell Interest|
Unfortunately I'm not surpised by this story.
I suspect the big boys may want to snap him up for a few million as soon as possible to avoid the possibility of having to pay 20 million plus, if Andre does start to perform to his potential over the course of the next year or two.
|Collins Not Joining Town and Expected to Sign for Stoke|
It may or may not be a financial decision, but I supect he will earn at least double at Stoke than we can offer.
Salary must surely come into most players thinking when agreeing a move, especially what may be your final move.
|Blues Legend Beattie Dies|
I am so taken aback to hear this news.
I was lucky enough to see him play in the 70's when I was a lad.
Rest in Peace Kevin and thank you for everything you did for my beloved club.
|Knudsen Confirmed in Danish Squad for Wales Clash|
Crowe has still not signed a professional deal at Town and is playing in the England U18s.
I dare say he will be the next one taken by one of the Premiership big boys for a handfull of beans.
