|Fortress Portman Road? |
at 02:20 22 Nov 2016
Portman Road is becoming a fortress for underachieving away sides. The opposition puts up a team formation that they know MM will try to match, they change to plan B before a ball is kicked, Ipswich confused and are then licked.
We must pick our team to play the way that we want, make the opposition worry about us for a change.

I think a few more games in the U23 team could help Teddy, I don't think he is the same player as he was before such a long layoff. McGoldrick or Williams taking his place, Best to play up front with Sears?
|Great week for Ipswich Town|

We haven't had much to cheer in 2016, but perhaps we are coming back!
In the last week. two wins for the U23 team against Prem teams Watford and West Brom, and a win at Hillsborough for the 1st team. Key players coming back from injury, more to follow, McGoldrick, Williams doing it instantly, some like Bishop needs more U23 time to become the player he was.
|Who picks the U23 team?|

On Monday we saw an U23 team get played off the park by Cardiff.
The Town team on paper looked good, with 1st team squad players either coming back from injury or needing game time, but the system played was a disaster.
Varney upfront on his own, Morris, a natural goalscorer put out on the wing, when he should have been on the shoulder of Varney's flick ons.
A skillful but lightweight midfield 3 of Williams, Bishop and Dozzel, had no time to create, and nobody to create for.
In previous U23 home games we had beaten Leeds and Hull, in exciting games with the minimum of 1st team indulgence...is the !st team formation wrong? the lack of a natural winger, like Fraser?
|Turning Point? Points|
at 02:15 18 Oct 2016
The Burton game has got to be the turning point of an abject 2016. We still have important players out or recovering from injury, but must have an attacking team to give us supporters something to cheer and really get behind.
Time for the back four to man up and look after themselves without the rest of the team having to sacrifice their game. Time for Best and Sears to have decent service from attacking fullbacks and wingers, a midfield playmaker, (we still really still miss this), but Bishop or Williams could fill the bill?, Skuse will still be there to cover any midfield mistakes.
|We won't win until we go for a win?|

While we put out our team to nullify the opposition we may never beat them. they know that is our tactic. Is it not time for us to play a team, especially at home, to aim to win.
|Our biggest mistake|
at 02:19 4 Oct 2016
The biggest mistake was made years ago by the people who advised a novice owner (ME) to appoint a novice manager Jim M. Perhaps those people should stand up to be counted for the demise of a once footballing club.
