Rotherham in playoffs 01:59 - Jan 29 with 2823 viewsIpswichlove

If we end up getting Rotherham in either semi final or final of playoffs will be a massive mental barrier to us after getting beat twice. We can’t handle their style of football, Jackson said it in his interview.

However, good chance they will go up automatically.

On current form the only way Town can go up via the play-offs is to win both ties on penalty shoot outs

Rotherham will go up automatically. I make it 50/50 whether we'll even make the play offs at the minute.

I don´t buy the " can’t handle their style of football" crap. Jackson said we weren´t at the races and I got the same feeling. That bothers me, how can you not be at the races against another team in the top and nearly a 1000 travelling fans? I am hoping that Lambert is more angry about that performance than he is letting on in his post game interview.
If you are good enough, other teams style of play is not that important in my opinion, quality will come through in the end. The question is: How good of a team are we?

I think we lack mental toughness to be honest. We don't show up for big games and when the going gets tough we are very easily cowed.

Yeah, our players sh!t themselves playing Rotherham United ffs. Not quite sure they have the mental strength to be playing for a team our size, bottle it every time.

I think all the players need to see physicists-they can’t go on to the pitch thinking they can’t win.

We also need to win a game on tv -at some point!

We've been like that for decades, with the odd (very) rare exception.

Don't see why it will change now....

Hmmm. Maybe Huws and Downes weren't at the races but it seems that if they can't win the central midfield battle then we don't really have another way to win.

Luckily, I don't think that's a problem against almost all other teams as Crooks and Barlaser were fantastically good last night. But shows we have some work to do to get the team strong enough to get promoted with room to spare – and long-term able to deal with the Championship.

That’s right enough! Every time we get to a game that really matters they do bottle it big time. 😡

As long as we don't get drawn against a top 8 team we should be fine.

We would lose in the play offs no matter who else is there. We have for years totally dismissed cup football and wouldn't be able to compete effectively the play offs which is basically a cup KO competition.

Academic really as we will end up finishing outside the play offs, we are that bad to be honest.

More likely to get Wycombe in the playoffs. They play the same style, so thats us done for. Or Peterborough, and we wont live with their strike force.

We should really have beaten Wycombe both times we played them. I'd not be at all concerned about Wycombe.

We are proper bottle jobs .... we have competed in 8 Championship playoff semis since 1987 and lost 7.

The one time we stumbled through (albeit in exceedingly dramatic fashion) it was only because Sheepy got the away goal rule ditched the preceding summer.

Our track record in League Cup semis is lamentable ... and to make matters worse we have lost to the budgerigars in both competitions.

That said once we get to Wembley (if you exclude the Charity Shield) we have a 100% win ratio ... and as we know our home record in all European competitions is quite extraordinary.

We didn't get through because of the change to the away goals rule. Away goals only kicked in after extra time, not after 90 minutes, and after extra time we'd won the tie 7-5 on aggregate.

You're right about 2000 ... it would not have mattered .... however, just in case, a piqued Sheepy did get the rule scrapped after Bolton beat us on away goals the previous season.

However main point stands .... out of 15 domestic semis (playoffs, league and fa cups) we have only made it through two .... that's fertile bottle job territory.
