This squad is an embarrassment 10:56 - Mar 17 with 1340 viewsBlueBlood90

I'm still seething at that display last night and there's genuinely not a single player that I would be bothered about leaving the club.

No spine, no fight, no passion, no quality, no anything!

In my opinion, if we were somehow able to achieve promotion this season then we'd either be humiliated every week (again) next season or in desperate need of an entirely new squad.

The only saving grace is I think Paul Cook comes across really well and I'm confident he can sort this mess out long term.

Either way there's going to be huge change in the Summer isn't there.

For the first time ever, perhaps with the exception of Downes and Dozzell, I genuinely wouldn't care at all if the entire squad moved on.

Yep, I tend to agree, I was prepared to give a few the benefit of the doubt when Cook came in, but the fact that we have an infectious new man at the helm and a number are still stinking out the place tells you all you need to know.

Is there? Who is going to fund it?

Evans has offered nothing in the past decade to suggest that Cook will get anything.

Players might be falling out of contract but I’m sure we’ll offer them new ones to avoid actually having to invest in scouting or new permanent contracts for fresh players.

I couldn’t believe what I was watching, but obviously I could. Four games under a new manager and none of them appear even remotely bothered. The squad is rotten and when things are rotten you have to cut out the rot. For me, Downes is the only player I’d be fussed about keeping, the rest are easily dispensable

Cook will sort them out if he's given the time and tools he needs. I trust Evans to give him the time, but I'm less confident on the latter.

I fully expect Sears to be part of any takeover.

Didnt see the match, listened to it on Radio Suffolk. It was a very dull & uninspiring listen, with a bitter & rather depressing morning after feeling. To hear that the takover is off & then to play as badly as that makes for a very rough week. Some right morons on the FB page. Who would I keep? KVY, Donacien, Wilson, Woolfenden, Kenlock, Downes, Lankester, McGavin, Dobra, Nydam, Bishop, & possibly Norwood. Need a totally revamped forward line & new players everywhere else. Surely Evans will give Cooky enough cash to at least do something?

I have nothing but anger and resentment towards them. That performance last night will go down in Ipswich history as one of the worst ever, given what a statement a win would have made.

But no, our blue shirted cowards waved the white flag yet again.

Blow it all up, Cook, spare nobody.

Although as O’Neil has publicly stated recently that town pay good wages, the problem is we will need to buy players rather than just rely on picking up free transfers. A massive clear out at the end of the system with drastically reduce the wage bill but money will need to be invested to buy better quality players. We also can’t rely on loans.

My main issue among many last night is the player’s inability to actual control a ball, which is a basic part of football, ruddy unbelievable 🤬

Oh come on. They've only been playing football since they were about 6 years old.

Plenty of time for all that control nonsense later.

In fairness, the balls don't help with control either, being round and all.

Also very noticeable v Gillingham; so many times a poor first touch led to ball being given away. Must be the L1 pitches making life hard for our boys in blue.

My feelings exactly!

If I was Paul Cook I would be absolutely insulted at that performance last night. If that was their levels of how much they care about promotion and wanting to impress their new manager then they should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.

I'm sure Cook is just biding his time and making an assessment on everybody before dishing out a few home truths if this continues. He didn't have to come out and protect the players last night so they owe him on Saturday.

Notable also that this was a line-up with 4 over-30s, plus another 4 senior pros, none of whom are going to suddenly going to discover another level.
