|Message to Marcus Evans|

Desperate times need desperate measures. Cut price tickets in an attempt to get bums on seats. Time for Marcus Evans to come out of hiding and show himself, stop hiding behind MM, letting him take all the flak, start coming to the front, start using your business acumen to rescue our/your club.

Poor display throughout by Town, and to make matters worst, two attacking players finally put on to grab a late result, a free kick for us and a chance for an undeserved winner, poorly executed and then the chase was on...just look where Arnold was before he was prepared to bust a gut for the cause, deep in defence but with the desire to get forward with pace, while our outwitted team wandered back as he grabbed the winner.
|Time to get rid of the injury prone to bring in the new? |
at 06:11 15 Jan 2017
We are in hard times and seem to be carrying a lot of injury prone players at this time?
Coke, Best, not good enough to make the first team, McGoldrick and Bishop, fading fast, long gone has the memories of them creating havoc or scoring like the past, they don't seem to want it enough. Smith and Hyam to be given our best shot to overcome injuries, they seem to have the heart.
|The Lincoln game, my view for what it's worth.|
at 02:14 8 Jan 2017
Lincoln City and their supporters can feel very proud of a performance that was worthy of a win. Only two superb pieces of individual brilliance by Lawrence saved our day, with Emmanuel IMO the only other Ipswich player coming out of the game with much credit. Without Skuse to protect them, centre backs Berra and Webster looked very vulnerable, as was the game plan set up by MM, totally outwitted by the young ex Braintree management team. It's nice to still be in the next round draw, but today we looked lightweight, lacked width, movement, confidence and most of all leaders on the pitch.

|Fed up of the same old defensive tactics? |
at 02:46 29 Dec 2016
We are all fed up watching the same defensive/negative tactics, team selection, time for us to select a different type team, using the players we have on our books. I will select a team of footballers, all of which should have been coached to use both feet, control, and head a ball from a very young age. I put to you and I know I might get down arrows for this, an attacking team using what we have at the moment.
Emmanuel, Skuse, Berra, Knudsen
Ward, McGoldrick, Lawrence
Skuse to be Captain.
Skuse reads the game well and could organise a back four, Webster is a true footballer and could protect the back four but has a forward thinking killer pass in his locker. McGoldrick has the ability to be the playmaker/goalscorer. Emmanuel/Ward, Knudsen/Lawrence to attack/defend for each other, Sears and Pittman to keep the opposition required to defend. Just a thought?
|We have lost our soul as a club|
at 04:17 27 Dec 2016
I listened to the Wigan game, 1 nil up no emotion, 1-1, 2-1, 2-2, 2-3 win, no emotion? I was pleased for the win, but got no emotion from it?
Today Fulham played us off the park, we had not a single shot on target, the only save that the Fulham keeper made was from his own player. I suggest that Mick gets one of his better coaches to watch the game at Coop Stand Upper with radio mike, they would see the lack of movement and demanding of midfield, no creativity, just having to defend two centre backs that should win their own battles, two fullbacks that should defend, cover and attack, that is the requirement now. For many years now we have missed that midfield playmaker, we now miss the main striker, and most of all we miss the soul of our Club, a John Cobbold type person...Marcus Evans now is your time to make your stamp, put your money in now when we are as supporters are at an all time low.

I was so lucky that my dad took me to watch Ipswich Town in the 3rd Division South, we won some and lost some. Then we got a real Manager somewhere along the way, Alf Ramsey, a novice from Fulham, he forged a team using a new formation that confused the norm. Bobby Robson saved his job at Ipswich by buying two players that saved his season, and then went to youth the following season, the rest is history. Mick seems so stuck in his ways, doesn't have the power players of his Wolves days in this Ipswich team. He tries to put out a formation to match but not beat a team. Always go out to win!
|Perhaps go on the front foot for a change|
at 02:07 14 Dec 2016
We are really missing a real centre forward, an out and out winger at the moment, plus for a long time a true playmaker, if that cannot be addressed, then I suggest we play a slightly different formation bent on attacking the opposition.
Chambers, Webster, Berra, Knudsen
Williams, Skuse, McGoldrick
Sears, Pitman, Lawrence
Webster and Berra to defend the main attackers and cover the full backs, Skuse to man mark the opposition playmaker, Chambers and Knudsen to attack/defend, Williams and McGoldrick to create/score, Sears and Lawrence with their pace to attack and defend, Pitman just be himself, the natural scorer.
Just a thought?
|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?
