Paul Lambert looks back on his first year at Town in an exclusive and extended interview with iFollow Ipswich

Paul Lambert says seeing the supporters coming back to Portman Road to enjoy their football has given him the most satisfaction in his first year at the Club.

The Town boss marks 12 months in charge of Blues at the weekend and has looked back on his time at the Club and what has been achieved - and what he wants to achieve - in an extended interview with iFollow Ipswich.  

“If I left tomorrow, seeing the supporters coming back and enjoying their football again would be what I would take most satisfaction from,” said the Town boss.

“Having the supporters engaging with the Club is the biggest thing for me.

“That was the thing that really worried me when I got here. What’s gone on here? There just wasn’t any atmosphere. You can fill a stadium and have no atmosphere. People can sit there and not engage with the game. I don’t think you can say that happens now.

“There is a real vibe about the place. So yeah, I think we have helped bring the fans back and that means a lot.”

See the full interview with Paul below, his worries over taking on the job; why the fans have surprised him; getting hurt with relegation; the challenge of getting the team back up; the ultimate aim - Ipswich Town back in the Premier League.
