Anyone still fancy us for the play offs?! 09:15 - Mar 17 with 1411 viewsWallingford_Boy

Games left are a lot harder than they appear on paper, relegation race is wide open!

I said when Cook was appointed 8th for us and rebuild in the summer (Evans will have to back him) and see how he goes next year with his own team.

The one he has inherited is nowhere near good enough.

Anyway, football eh?! Have a good Wednesday all.

RIP Sir Bobby

Think we'll still do it. Our run-in is super easy compared to everybody around us, even with the way we play sometimes. We'll finish 6th.

On paper we should be able to beat those teams. Then you remember that it's also a mental battle and you become a lot less confident. We've been a gift to teams who need a win for a long time now.

Portsmouth get to unwrap three points on Saturday. Hope i'm wrong but when the tough gets going at Town they all hide.

Yes, still reckon we have a decent chance. Whether we'd win them is another matter, but the practice would be useful.

Cook is still exploring what is his best team, plus Downes and, more importantly, Norwood were out yesterday. We'll just have to see how it goes. Was never likely to be a smooth path, this is Ipswich Town, after all.

Good Lord! Whatever is it?

Of course the playoffs are still in reach. This division is like the championship in terms that anyone can beat anyone. There’s no real quality in this division so anything can happen.

Well, it is. Fleetwood was the hardest game left. We will probably draw against Portsmouth, but other than that, our run-in is incredibly generous and if we don't make at least the play-offs from here, it would be a significant failing.

Off course they are in reach, just not sure we have the fight in us to make it.

Our squad should be in the play-offs no doubt. And certainly that was partially why Lambert was sacked. I don't think Cook should be afforded no responsibility on trying to achieve that. He didn't take over with a massive points haul to make up. If the-worst-manager-of-recent-times Lambert can keep us in touching distance of the playoffs then Cook should definitely get us in there, if he's half as good as some on here think.

I'm just going to remind you that Gillingham tonked us, we were under pressure for large parts against Plymouth and Lincoln and if it hadn't been for a sending off against Accrington we were looking in trouble too.

None of our recent games in our upturn in form have been particularly convincing performances.

I think we’ll finish 7th.

A big rebuild job in the summer, as you say. But if Evans is still here then Cook won’t get any funding, and it’ll be another round of loans, punts and freebies.

I do not disagree with you on that. I'm just pointing out that we *should* make the play-offs given this run in, our squad, and our new manager. I don't think the Gillingham loss was much a shock, they have been beating people with ease recently. Scored three times in 4 of their last 5 games.

8th.

Freebies coming in as Evans won't pay fees. We'll get our 3rd or 4th choices as more forward thinking clubs will be in for the better players and as a result our squad, over all, will be weakened.

We are where we are by being mainly awful. I’m hoping that Cook is hoping to get a tad more out from them which should see us in the playoffs.

I said 7th from the start of the season and I still think that's the best finish this squad can manage. It certainly hasn't improved recently!

We have to get used to no Downes!


But if we don't have Downes (agree, a by no means unlikely scenario), then we need to replace the hole he leaves in the team. Something Cook hasn't really had the chance to do yet*.


* Including enough training time to rework the formation to compensate, let alone new hirings.

Although the likes of Gillingham and Lincoln are a fair bit higher in the league than the majority of the sides we have left to play. I agree performances have been unconvincing for a long time, but given the sides we have left to play it shouldn't need that much of an upturn in performances to give us a decent chance of finishing 6th.

I imagine most players see us as a big club at this level that pays decent wages. Norwood came here ahead of offers from the Championship on that basis. We won't have an issue attracting players in the summer.

what we saying, we need 75 points to make the PO?

based on that we need another 21 points, from the remaining 36 up for grabs.

are we really capable of 7 wins from 12? or 5 wins and 6 draws?

I don't see it personally

Who cares? He wants out and he's hardly setting league one alight is he?

If we can get £3m for him then job done.
