So where is the line for everyone then? 15:47 - Oct 3 with 3501 viewsMJallday

For me, enough is enough now . i'd have been prepared to give PH until christmas if id have seen 1 or 2 wins, but no, nothing. so im nailing my colours, i think its time to move on quickly.

it just my opinion, but after 40odd years of town support, i think im allowed one.

where does everyone else see the situation right now?

End of the month really, people are saying it's a tough run, and it is, but he's also had to play Blackburn, Rotherham, Bolton and Hull ... all arguably 3 pointers for a normally average Ipswich team and he's not even managed that much. If we cannot win in 3 months he has to go.

I also don't see how by allowing him another transfer window to empty the remaining dregs of League One and Two into our team will be of any benefit to anyone bar the players themselves!

It's time to make the best of it.

Even Jackie Milburn won nearly a fifth of games he was in charge of.

Paul Goddard managed 0% wins, but he was only a 4-game caretaker. Likewise Chris Hutchings, who was only in charge for one.

I don't think we should wait until Xmas, I'd give him 5 more games and then decide. I feel the biggest problem is the 4-2-3-1 formation doesn't suit the type of players we have, has to go back to 4-4-2.

Maybe I'm being impatient but I'm out already. Brentford set an amber light flashing but yesterday highlighted just how many things need fixing and they are too many and varied for a manager lacking experience at this level.

Where to begin? Shambolic squad management when it comes to player recruitment, sales and loanees out of the club, unnecessarily radical changes with selections and formations, poor organization and tactics on the pitch and both questionable line-ups and substitutions. I am steering clear of the off-field rumours - this is only going on what I have witnessed on the pitch.

We now have a team bled of confidence and energy, lacking a consistent cutting edge and with an error-prone and unprotected defence. We cannot sustain a performance for a full 90 minutes and opponents know they can be patient and wait for their time to come.

This team reminds me so much of the Barnsley team who came to Portman Road and lost to us on the night Mick departed. It will get relegated unless all of the above problems can be fixed.

A good manager can create a virtuous circle which will start to turn these problems around, but I would be stunned if it was Hurst. I will be the first to apologize if proved wrong, but he has completely underestimated how difficult the challenges are of managing in the Championship.

I'm trying hard to stay positive. I've been to all the home games barring the last two, but I've watched every game on the laptop and barring the odd really good 20 minute spell here and there I can't see any real progress.

There's a bit a Damned United vibe to it, he's changed too much too soon I think and the people at the club/academy who he should be leaning on for information and support seem to have had their noses put out of joint by his approach. The whole situation on the pitch and at Playford Road seems to be a right mess.

When you have respected posters on here who have genuine links with the club and are ITK are posting here that it's all kicking off behind the scenes and have no reason to BS then you have to wonder.

I can't see where a win is coming from on current form, so many things that are going wrong even with this 'settled' system that I can't see how it will all click together over 90 minutes to win a game.

I'm at the 'this many games without a win isn't 'bad luck' it's 'incompetence" stage.

Mullet Gtsb Blue badger Bloots N2 Blue ITFC Joe …and the rest. Do you not understand that these forums have massive sway these days? You’ve killed it. We may go on to bigger better things, who knows? Your bitching and whining on here is picked up and has a massive ripple effect. Fking knobs the lot of you. For weeks you’ve been stamping your feet like little girls and it gets picked up when all you needed to do was ride it out for a bit. Pathetic. Cook always comes good, he always has done, talk to any Pompey, Wigan or Chesterfield fan. I’m in Pompey tonight and they’re all shaking their heads. Dkheads the lot of you. Happy to get banned on the back of this. You’re ridiculous. The ramifications are massive which may be placated with money but fk me; learn to kick a ball and know what you’re talking about before you lash out in anger. A massive shame and a massive shame on you. Cook is working hard. What are you doing other than idly pointing fingers and drawing on nonsense stats. Nothing but contempt for you lot and your baseless insights into football when you’ve never even kicked a ball.

I wouldn't. If we still haven't won a match by late December (preferably at least three or four), then we are likely to be so far adrift in the table that turning the situation around and avoiding relegation might simply not be achievable within the time left.

I too have had enough.

I didn't expect much, just enough wins to keep us out of the bottom 3 and a clear joined up plan of slow improvement, but we are not seeing or getting that.

I have posted elsewhere in my own thread last night of the reasons and frustrations in a little more detail..

I have seen most of pre season and every game except Exeter and Brum, and we are not getting any better , I cannot see where the first win ( let alone any after that) is coming from.

I have no faith that we will do any better against Preston , Millwall QPR and Reading( in those matches that can already be termed 6 pointers) .... than we have against Hull, Rotherham and Brum so far.

Winners win, poor managers lose , 1 or 2 games without a win might be a fluke, but we are well past that.
