Players we should have signed when we had the chance
at 21:10 22 Nov 2014

Charlie Austin (over Burnley)
Matt Ritchie (over Bournemouth)
Andrew Surman (over Nodge)
Henri Lansbury (over Nodge)
Robert Earnshaw (instead of targeting Nugent)
Chris Iwelumo (he had a house in Ipswich)

There must be countless others, realistically we could have got all of these players

EDIT: Further back - Kevin Phillips, countless times although there would have been no Marcus Stewart

So what do you make of the play-off contenders so far?
at 17:39 22 Nov 2014

Here's my opinion

Derby - Decent, Title Contender

Bournemouth - excellent side, could push for the title

Middlesbrough - not sure, haven't seen enough of them to tell but they've spent heavily and in Adomah have one of the best wingers in the league - title contender?

Brentford - no idea

Blackburn - average

Watford - decent, playoff contender

Forest - average and expensively assembled, will they pass FFP?

Charlton - again not sure, probably likely to finish just outside the top six

Norwich - they could turn it around, the longer Adams is in the job, the better!

Wolves - average

Cardiff - They clearly have plenty of talent but it's all a bit of a circus there

It's frankly miraculous we're doing so well
at 17:33 22 Nov 2014

despite all these injury set backs, credit to MM for keeping us competitive, particularly amongst the richer sides likely to fail FFP in January

Hopefully we can reap the benefits of half the division suffering a transfer embargo :p
I really don't like how we're finishing games this season
at 17:16 22 Nov 2014

we're organised, work hard and have enough quality to be where we are on merit but with the odd tweak, we can be a real contender if we recruit well in January.

Bournemouth are a very vibrant side with pace aplenty, good technique, close control and movement. They're more ready for the Premiership than us currently I'd suggest but should that really be a shock given the money they've spent to build that side?

I think we're probably one or two players away from being a title challenger, not just a play-off contender.

Cameron Stewart if he ever gets back to what he can do may cover one of those slots, we'll have to see what happens in January when half the league have a transfer embargo following FFP :p

I'm happy where we are, MM has done a brilliant job but I'd like to see him take us to the next level over the course of this season.

Exciting times at Town for the first time in a long time, bring on the next game!

Very good point in the end
at 17:04 22 Nov 2014

We need a little bit more if we want to compete with sides like this on the deck

Not convinced by Skuse, Anderson or Chambers (at right back) are up to it, not at the top end of this league.

Keane was a fool not to go after Surman before Norwich got him, very good player imho. Ritchie is a useful player too, Jewell was interested in him, surprised he ended up at Bournemouth really.

Pugh's a handful, we need a winger like either of those two and we'd be a very dangerous side!

Anderson is looking knackered down that right hand side
at 16:52 22 Nov 2014

really should sub him
All a bit hectic currently, Bournemouth looking more likely
at 16:48 22 Nov 2014

we desperately need another sub imho
Mings injured, that's a big blow! (n/t)
at 16:41 22 Nov 2014

There's the set piece :)
at 16:34 22 Nov 2014

Bournemouth don't do set piece defending!
New player on, crippled almost immediately :p
at 16:23 22 Nov 2014

That's one pacey outlet dealt with
We're getting exposed down the right hand side far too often
at 16:18 22 Nov 2014

Anderson and Chambers, not helping one another
We missed out on Ritchie under Jewell? (n/t)
at 16:13 22 Nov 2014

Shocking defending for that second, oh dear
at 16:12 22 Nov 2014

Not what we wanted to happen :(
Teddy Bishop you legend :) (n/t)
at 16:08 22 Nov 2014

Ipswich Player
at 16:01 22 Nov 2014

really is hopeless isn't it, it drops out far too often

Currently listening to the Bournemouth half time coverage now
I presume these are tactical changes
at 14:50 22 Nov 2014

because Skuse and Anderson don't exactly scream ambition to me :p
Here's one for Callis and the Taco Crew
at 17:31 7 Nov 2014
Is Veseli still at the club or has he been released? (n/t)
at 15:47 7 Nov 2014

EDIT: Ah on loan at Port Vale

He's unlikely to be a left field selection for our midfield then :p

Kevin Bru gets better with every game
at 22:35 4 Nov 2014

He ran the show in the first half, its a shame him and Hyam and now going to be broken up, that was a good combo!

For every moment of genius, there is a moment of madness with Bru, hopefully he'll learn to get a little less risky when we're slightly vulnerable

He was about half a foot away from scoring a cracker though, I wouldn't be surprised to see him chip in with the odd goal given the positions he got into tonight
Beat Wolves tonight and we go above them in the table
at 18:08 4 Nov 2014

That would be a useful leapfrog

We haven't beaten anyone by three goals for some time, surely this is overdue?
