How much longer. Ohh why not wait until the end of Jan until it is too late? Really looking forward to visiting Walsall, Exeter, Stevenage next season - far more cosmopolitan than going to Paris!

Stonewall penalty not given, go on to lose 2-1. Such is life. Wonder if McCarthy thinks we're in a relegation battle now? For once the result wasn't Jewell's fault in terms of team and tactics, but again, argument stands - his players, his team, his coaching team. Do we even have a defensive coach, or a fitness coach? Jewell out.

I love the fact some of you so called 'supporters' are getting so wound up and stressed over all this with your negativity - proves you're suffering! (and boy I find that so satisfying)
Now a word for the true fans that turn up and SUPPORT their team. GOOD ON YOU!! We don't need the dross and all their hot air

its not luck or luck against us!!! its the bloody manager and the players he puts out!! this is one of the crappest squad since 2007!!! we are in deep s*** and are sinking deeper
|TimmyH added 22:13 - Jan 11|
We've got the losing mentality, even when we play ok we seem to narrowly lose, when we play bad we get hammered. Not clever reading for Jewell, the worst Ipswich manager since the early 60's!! ( his losing record must stand at 50% now).
|AndyStannard added 22:16 - Jan 11|
on top of that we've got blackpool, leed and west ham next!!!! Good luck!! bloody hell just want to go to seep and wake up at the begining of next season!!
