Giving Mick one more go 11:18 - Apr 21 with 724 viewsBobbychase

Renewing ST. Don't think he's going anywhere but will see what the summer brings. Great performance Monday and we've lost three of our last 16 games. Genuinely don't think things are as bad as it's been portrayed.

That said, Evans is on borrowed time and big investment needed. Someone to replace Lawrence for a start.

Good luck. I can't take another year of defensive, boring football.

It's not completely the results though, we are one of the most boring unimaginative sides in the league (Monday aside). Like you I'm giving Mick a chance to turn it around next season but it has been very poor.

I'd still argue that it's more entertaining than the football Keane offered us. FWIW

Interesting that Newcastle played a very direct approach against us, looking at long diag balls or to hit Murphy......

EDIT: I should also say that, without doubt watching football under Jewell was arguably more exciting that Micks team this season. We were as likely to ship 4 as score 4 under Jewell so it wasn't dull.

Ive renewed for no reason other than I'm a town fan. I hold no hope that MM will change his ways, and no hope on any real spend from ME.

Same sht again

I was lucky enough to see the final 8 mins of the game vs Aston Villa (season 2016/17)

Oddly, football doesn't work that way though does it. Which is what makes it interesting.

At the end of last season I said this, and was proved right. This season was as pointless as many of us 'negative' ones predicted

Yeah, but, no back to back losses. Extend his contract

From a positive it keeps continuity and a mass upheaval in changes if MM stays. However, one decent performance does not detract from the fact we have been woeful for more than 18 months. I would imagine statistically we must be bottom of the league for ball retention, passing, shots on and off target etc. I'm still sticking with my stand that I won't be going, until there is significant improvement and possibly changes. Regardless of what MM thinks, I still want to pay my money and be entertained with a decent style of football. Instead of looking at our line up thinking are we actually looking to attack this game with two defensive midfielders at home? I just don't believe he is capable of delivering what I crave. Lets see how we fare against Rotherham, that should be an acid test or was the performance against Newcastle a one off!
In addition, I'm expecting ME to make more effort to reconnect the fans and the club. There seems a large void at the moment and some mending of bridges needs to come from Ipswich to entice us back and that needs to come from Mr Evans. The summer could be very interesting. On the other hand we are talking about Ipswich Town and If there is the opportunity to be underwhelmed they often deliver, especially under ME!

When you say, "expecting" - in what sense of that word?

Same here.

Going in with my eyes wide open. The previous hope that we'd actually provide some intent in transfer windows has long given way to blinding realisation that it's not going to happen.

And I retain the right to moan and groan about the appalling standard of the football I'm paying to watch.

Good on you. I think Mick should step down after these 3 games and walk away with some dignity in tact. He's done a good job on balance but to me he's not the man to take us forward. He's not the source of the problem, Evans is. But nor is Mick the solution.

At this moment in time I don't intend to go anymore, but I respect you for renewing. Each to their own.

You may have been proved right in that instance but he did deserve to start the season imo.

He could have been sacked at points during this season.

I think the dwindling crowds are in part due to the 16 consecutive years with very little to distinguish between them.

When Keane took over there was atleast the (albeit fading) memory of our time in the top flight and the optimism of getting back there one day. That has all disappeared as we trudge into another season safely ensconced in lower mid table mediocrity

Not sacking an experienced manager that has overseen such a downturn hasn't been tried before - so it'll be interesting in that respect.
