Brighton and Hove Albion v Ipswich Town Your Report added by nthstd at 10:13:33 The worst game I have seen in a long time . Tyrone Mings was redefining lazy. He hung Tab out to dry. No central midfield attack what so never . Defensive line far to narrow and deep. Failure to deal with wingers. Failure to yank le. Failure to pass to a town player. General the worst game in years.
Ipswich Town v Southampton Your Report added by Pilgrimblue at 15:19:44 A game to forget, there wasn't a plan or enough passion the players just looked dead. Passiong was terrible (as in Derby game) with too many players unwilling to hold the ball up and think what they were doing. Couldn't believe Hyam just passed it straight to opposition and if he did find Town player it was backwards or very near. He needs to go out on loan and learn hopw to hold ball and run forwards! Only bright spots were Hunt and Mings, shame they weren't on pitch at same time. Time for McG to pick his game up. His shooting is unacceptable and has forgotten hoiw to link up with Murphs. He does ok outside box with some skills but its inside the box that counts where penalties can be earnt or more effective layoffs to team-mates! His blast late on was desperate. Bru looked good (as always) but needs Bish and JW to work with. Ambrose looked ok but slow on right, centre best.
Ipswich Town v Southampton Your Report added by Pilgrimblue at 13:45:58 So disappointing but surely MM now will realise that the squad isn't good enough to sustain challenge. The team has definitely over-performed and has relied on Murph's goals. If he dries up we're in trouble. Hyam should be loaned out he's been very poor with only his tackling being of any plus. If McG is out and Sammon gone we're very light on strikers. Badjer needs more sub experience and that leaves junior Hunt, wow!! January could be very bad month so unless MM can find a jewel or two we'll be lucky to keep up in top 6.
Ipswich Town v Southampton Your Report added by Superblue95 at 11:37:56 I think the only positive that could be taken from this game was that it wasn't in the league. Hyam waa worst player on the pitch by far, our usual sturdy defence looked very shaky with too many sloppy passes back to Bart who messed up just about every kick. Mcgoldrick very selfish trying to do everything himself and Murphy couldn't get in the game at all. Bru was the only one trying to make things happen and split open their defence but it just wasn't coming off. Mings looked good when he came on but other than that thoroughly poor performance against a premiership team who were there for the taking
Ipswich Town v Southampton Your Report added by aljames at 11:16:08 Disappointing Ipswich! What a let down, plenty of effort but no quality. Not a single goalworthy effort apart from the early marginally offside goal. Defended comfortably but on that performance midfield & upfront still a long way off premier standard. Could MM get his players to spend a few hours each week practising passing to each other? Lets hope we can get it together now & improve for the league matches.
Ipswich Town v Southampton Your Report added by northstand1962 at 08:06:14 Very disappointing with such a large crowd to cheers us on, Luke Hyman may be one of our own but not creative enough for me. With Salmon being released hopefully Mick will look at getting a decent strike to give Murphy and Mcgoldrick some competition (they have done nothing wrong) but we could become too predictable. Bru again showed he is a very good player and should start along Skuse, Bishop and Ando in midfield Only a couple of bad results, keep the faith and believe in Mick Millwall on Saturday, a win and the start of another unbeaten run
I thought we were unlucky to be losing at half time and that the first half performance was very good. We competed well and passed the ball as good as, if not better than Southampton.
Second half Southampton upped their tempo and looked in control without making us look silly.
Overall I didn't think it was a match to be disappointed about. Ambrose played well and was far more effective than Anderson normally is and Bru looked a class act. If we play like we did in the first half against most of the teams in our league we will win comfortably.
Ipswich Town v Southampton Your Report added by RomfordBlue at 23:50:46 Another consecutive hugh dissappointment. Little skill and a lackluster performance in front of the TV cameras. Apart from Bru and Hunt - and Ambrose in the first half, the whole team were again quite amateurish. McGoldrick really must stop this selfish trend he has adopted in his frustration about not scoring. If he is not working in partnership with Murph, we are in trouble. 4 - 0 v Millwall Saturday is what is needed or else warning bells wil really start ringing - again!
Ipswich Town v Southampton Your Report added by Juanforthemoney at 23:26:44 I thought that Bru once again showed that he is worthy of a starting berth on a regular basis. At least he demands the ball and is prepared to look for a forward pass. Sadly poor Hyam is looking bereft of ideas at present. The squad looks a little stretched at present and given the illnesses and possible injuries we will be picking up, there must be some thought to increasing the squad numbers. Both strikers look like they could do with a rest and the midfield still lacks creativity.
Ipswich Town v Southampton Your Report added by BigG1983 at 22:34:25 Pretty poor game. Feel we resorted to long ball and although Lawro's commentary annoyed me he was right to point how often we passed back to Bart. 2 games in a row where we have failed to impress but hopefully this is our blip done and it might even alert Mick to the fact that we don't have any backup for upfront, definitely not worth persevering with the Badger!
Ipswich Town v Southampton Your Report added by spiegal at 22:33:55 Why oh why do we continue to play Luke Hyam...not an ounce of class..not an ounce of vision, not a clue about how to link play....somebody tell him that the only way you pressure a defence or a midfield is to be at least 40% positive...such a very frustrating player. Couldnt play a forward pass all night.
Ipswich Town v Southampton Your Report added by broseleyblue at 22:25:59 Really disappointing especially as large crowd and terrestrial tv. I know selection restricted by lack of availability but so little quality, just work rate. I just can't imagine how we'll cope if we somehow get promoted. However, the last two games demonstrate the futility of not strengthening this transfer window (assuming we don't). Maybe these two games will convince MM and ME to add some creativity, pace and a backup striker with the ability to score goals.
Ipswich Town v Derby County Your Report added by paddypowell at 11:10:31 too many wayward passes from chambers &smith in the first half murphy must have thought he done something to upset the others with the rubbish passes he was given hyam is a liability in midfeild with his tackling he is always going to get booked bru is a far more productive player,and i think mick has to tell didzy,he has to concentrate on playing as part of the team instead of getting frustrated at not scoring,after all that we are still the same 1point off the top as we were before this game,dare i say its down to our enemies in norfolk giving us a lifeline,and 2 losses out of 22games is not a crisis ,so come on lads lets pick up from here coyb
Ipswich Town v Derby County Your Report added by austractor at 03:22:25 First game I have been able to watch in sometime, and very early on it was apparent that we waste way too much ball. Sides like Derby who like possession should have hurt us more than they did with the way we were handing them possession.
On top of that we didnt put away the good chances we did get (Tabb Murph in particular) so the result was who blinks first and it was us.
Bishop and Hyam didnt work for me as a combo. Bru Bish or Bru Hyam based on what I saw would have served us better in my opinion.
