Soooo Mick is fuming is he?.... and for something refreshing at his own players collective incompetence is he?.... and using profane words in the process is he?
Welly welly welly well who would ever have thought THAT, particular the latter, of this sweet sweet & ever so respectful Yorkshire Man ... of Irish descent??? lol

Which brings me to today's classic 'Mick Our Swearing Dinosaur' oxymoron....



Footnote: A little 'Googling' reveals that Mick actually used this particular nasty swear -- a swear too familiar to us ITFC fans by now :-) -- in public, way before becoming an Ipswich Town manager. Here for example back in 2009 in relation to getting his very 1st home win as a Premier League manager after having failed to do so in his previous 21 attempts (in 3 seasons)!!!

We need two or three signings urgently or else we are about to have a season we will wish we could forget. In total agreement with midastouch, these preseason games are about building confidence and our first team and youngsters won't have much of that after some pretty awful results. Narrow win at Shelbourne, outplayed for large periods at Colchester, draws at Cambridge and Coggeshall and a well deserved defeat to Hadleigh. Not exactly awe inspiring.

one last thought, yes football is essentially a results business, but it's also nice to be suitably entertained and excited in the process of picking up winning results along the way. call me greedy, but i'd much prefer to watch us win pretty rather than ugly. mick would argue it's not possible on our current budget, and he's prob got a point given ME is giving him peanuts. that is a fair point of contention. but given our long and proud history and traditionally being known as a team that likes to try and play an attractive style, i think the thing that rankles with some of us is that the football hasn't been very pretty, in fact very often ugly! yes you need to mix it up as mick said the other day, but the mix (certainly for plenty of matches last season) has been far too weighed towards the ugly side compared to the pretty side. hopefully mick can find a better balance of good, bad and ugly this season. if he finds the perfect balance we might be looking at a fistful of millions in the prem, it seems like mission impossible right now. if only marcus would give him a few dollars more!!! :-)

pre-season games aren't just about fitness, they are also about building confidence. some fans on here are a lot more confident about our chances this season than others. some even sound like they are happy to dance in the streets when we finish 7th! however, as far as i'm aware the team that finishes 17th gets exactly the same as the team that finishes 7th, i.e. sweet FA!
i think we'll be lucky to finish as high as 7 this season. as for top two, i don't think we've got a hoof in hell! the thing that saddens me is i want to be in the positive camp believing we're going to defy the odds and have a great season, and believe you me if we do achieve that i'll be more than happy to eat humble pie. but i can't deny it, i've just got a nasty feeling this season isn't going to be one to remember! yes of course it's only my gut feeling and i'd be so happy to be wrong as my life will be miserable getting stick from all the norwich folk if they have a great season and we have a crap one. so please ipswich, prove us doubters wrong!
if the team can get off to a reasonable start it will do wonders around these parts to improve morale, i think we really do need that to steady the jitters and nerves. granted there's no need to panic yet, but if we keep struggling to come by goals and play it ugly, i fear panic could quickly spread to the terraces and team. let's hope the positive brigade are right to keep their faith, because if things don't go to plan, their faith might be tested to breaking point. some of us seem at breaking point already, but you know how fickle fans to be. if we beat norwich early doors and get a few valuable points in the bag, needless to say morale will be much improved. but if we don't, then panic could spread far and wide.
here's hoping to the best of starts against barnsley. be lovely to get off to a winning start, would be just the tonic to lift the mood round these parts. i do still believe that the team needs more investment to paper over some of the cracks. indeed there's still time for a couple of rabbits to come out of the hat, but the clock is ticking...
if the pre-season games are anything to go by we do need some additions. i think we can all at least agree on that.

Portman Road Policing Still to Be Confirmed
by cats_whiskers at 01:04:21

With a falling attendance
half a dozen police will soon be enough.

With the ridiculous of money awash in football today going into players pockets,
Public safety is being run on the cheap
and common sense is going down the drain

Well done MM for giving the lads a blast for sloppy play.
We're getting close to games that will actually count and need to ensure that good habits and discipline are encouraged and reinforced.
Great to see some good young contenders coming through...well done Andre.

Nydam did really well given he played 93 mins at Coggeshall 24 hours before. Rest up Hyam and hope the injury isn't too bad.

So, the doom brigade want MM to show passion yet moan when he does. They think MM has favourites but it's obvious that it's the moaners and detractors who have their own. What a bunch of ill informed, perpetually biased, non season ticket holder posters there are on here. So sad to hear these people denigrate a reasonably well run club. Thankfully, the vast majority of Town supporters are balanced people who keep their counsel and comment wisely on the basis of what they see and analyse rather than what their prejudiced brains spill out.

WELL - we've had a great pre season, signed some good players, played some strong opposition in friendlies. and had some excellent results. Not forgetting - scored lots of goals.

I know the above is all a load of sh*** - but thought I'd join the usual deluded ostrich's and post the same garbage as they do, for once - and see what it feels like to have your ears and eyes full of sand.

Right now, I would take 14th-16th. Somewhere safe from the drop.
