Time for the season to take off tonight.... 11:02 - Sep 28 with 1888 viewsitfcjoe

....no more excuses, no more gelling, no more disappointment.

Go out and beat a poor Doncaster side comfortably, score a few goals and let's start climbing this table

No more room for excuses - poor side , bottom of the league and no fire power (Doncaster not us , just in case )

3-0 tonight - convincing team performance and we’re on a roll

Whilst I totally agree with OP. If anyone going down tonight think this is going to be a “walk over“ are in for a bit of shock . Doncaster won’t come here to make it easy .

I’m expecting 11 men behind the ball. Spoiling tactics. Hit us in the break etc etc …..

The best thing Town can do is get an early goal . Fingers crossed we do and don’t get caught by the usual sucker punch !

Having witness 1 win in 10 games this season, I don't think anyone is taking a win for granted.

This notion that Doncaster will be a push over is ridiculous

BUT they are having a poor season, out of form and must be beaten

They are fighting for their lives, and won’t roll over. That’s why the fans need to BRING THE NOISE

The fans are generally good, they have stayed behind the team far more than what has been deserved since McCarthy left and we've been on a downward spiral, admittedly Covid meant the worst of the Lambert era was BCD.

Like I said, no more excuses - just win.

At the end of the day, a poor 1-0 win or a scrappy 6-4 will do the job. The important thing is that we start not only winning but stringing a series of wins together.

I agree there are no more excuses, and it’s a must win

That does put pressure on the players though

Consistent and positive backing from the terraces can smooth any bumps in the game and in confidence that a Doncaster team fighting for their lives may bring

Whilst I agree the club doesn’t deserve support without caveats, and the players need to create noise by attacking, but it is a fact that in games this season if a game has turned against us, the fans have gone very quiet

Newport at home was almost the most consistent backing

Fan support aside, for me tonight is all about breaking the hoo doo of not seizing the MUST win games… throughout Marcus reign, we have failed to do it, we must change… run to adversity as Ashton would say

And it’s sobering to think Doncaster will see us a great opportunity to get their season back on track. Can’t underestimate how important it is for us to win tonight.

If the players can't cope with pressure of beating Doncaster at home then they are in the wrong game.

The fans are the fans, it simply isn't going to be the case that they stand and sing for 90 minutes, encouraging the players no matter how the game is going - it isn't like that for any club in world football and it will never be like that here. They get far more backing than most clubs do.

You should go to Anfield Joe! Or Cruz Azul Mexico City... relentless support

But Ipswich does not have that fan base. But to be clear this season, once the game has even slightly turned in two games, PR has fallen silent. Been better recently.

But yes as you say, a lot has been made of the strength of characters brought in, Edmundson, Burgess, Celina, Evans... and now the ultimate Morsy. If they can't stand up and be counted tonight, and get the job done, then they are not what we thought.

Joe, how on earth did you used to cope in the Burley years when we'd be 16th/17th at Christmas and make a charge after Xmas? To build anything sustainable takes time and patience. Who's to say Wigan's form will last, for example?

I just feel this insistence on making every game a must win is just heaping unnecessary pressure. The players and staff will already be heaping enough onto themselves, don't you think?

We were never 16th or 17th at Christmas under Burley, and in the seasons where we were mid table we failed to get promoted

It was only at the 5th attempt (when we were 3rd at Xmas) that we eventually got up. Should we be giving Cook 5 years to get us out of the 3rd division?

However, the most dangerous leftists of all may be certain oversocia- lized types who avoid irritating displays of aggressiveness and refrain from advertising their leftism, but work quietly and unobtrusively to promote collectivist values, “enligh- tened” psychological techniques for socializing children, dependence of the individual on the system, and so forth.

We were 15th at Christmas in 1996 and eventually finished 4th. Very low points totals that year though, team in 2nd got just 80 points.

Always weird to me when people think its worth making comparisons between seasons in the 2nd Tier and seasons in the 3rd.

I know nothing of Cruz Azul so cannot comment but the idea that the support is relentless at Anfield and the fans neither go quiet nor get on the team's back is ridiculous. Of course, if you only ever go to a match where the team is doing well that might be the experience for that match.

You can bet your bottom dollar there would not be relentless support for the team, were Liverpool in the bottom 3 of the Premier League having played 5 home matches for 4 points and drawn with the likes of Southampton and Villa and been thumped 5-2 by Brentford, they would not be showing relentless support.

Indeed, you could also bet your bottom dollar that were we top of the league having only dropped points in an entertaining and hard-fought draw, our support might be "relentless".
