No Tommy Smith??? He should stroll into this team every week since the turn of the year, he has been immense. I haven't seen Tabb yet, any thoughts?

Not sure who picked that team.... They probably just looked through the results and plumped for those who had scored and then added a couple of other names to throw us off the scent.

These teams are a joke. They always go for goalscorers. Very insightful.

BlueMachines added 12:47 - Mar 20
Surprising to be honest. Not sure about Tabb although he worked hard. Carlos should definitely not be in there. Was poor apart from the goal.

Look how much Chopra's loving it in that photo!

I didn't make much of Tabb tbh, he dosen't seem to possess any upper body strength, constantly losing possession. The only part of our team I think played well was the defence, barring some of Stearmans attacking play. I think Carlos was good cover for the rb and his work rate was excellent, but was lacking going forward on the whole. I liked what I saw of McGoldrick although I wanted to see him in the middle instead of out wide all the time.

Neither of these should make team of the week. Carlos was a passenger for most of the game and without cover from the, once again, impressive Stearman would have cost us the game. Tabb was busy but ineffective, maybe a couple of weeks to bed in will help him.

Whoever chooses team of the. Week must have been looking at a different game top the one oi saw. Dithering in defence and ineffective going forward. The only plus point for Edwards was his goal , which he needed 2 attempts to convert. Tabb on the other hand had a so so game which hardly merits team of the week entry. Chambers and smith would have been my choice everytime

Great to see Ipswich players getting in the Team of the Week on a regular basis nowadays!

ChrisMakin2012 added 13:52 - Mar 20
This is nonsense! Tabb struggled in the position he was put in (out wide) and Carlos only scored, other than that was abysmal.

How about heroes like Smith, Chambo or Stearman?

Completely pointless exercise. Few actually at the game would have made either player in the top half of the Ipswich Players performances. Most of the Bolton team played better than Carlos. Why we have to put up with these nonsensical judgements is beyond me. I wonder how close the Wolves Goalie got to being included in this bizarre selection.

Michael11 added 14:07 - Mar 20
How?? Carlos was pretty useless all game except for the goal and can't remember Tabb doing anything neither but hey ho better that we have players in best team of the week instead of worst!

Rjitfc added 14:08 - Mar 20
I like Tabb Im sure he will prove to be a handy player for us, but never in a million years should he be in team of the week! The same could be said for Carlos! Smith, Chambers or Stearman deserve it far more

Maverick_Mitch added 14:39 - Mar 20
Makes me laugh. People want to moan what a waste of time this TotW then use it to slag off our players. I'm sure MM is more than capable of pointing out the errors of their ways. Overall you can't fault Carlos for effort over the 90 mins and Tab although tiny kept bouncing back and for his first game showed promise. Granted the back 5 a becoming quite awesome and hopefully we can expect more clean sheets. Easter will be the big test! And finally - Carlos wouldn't have got two bites at the cherry if JET had produced that one piece of magic.

maxharrold added 15:29 - Mar 20
A very poor selection from whichever half-wit picked this team. Edwards was poor until the goal and Tabb had little strength and gave away possession easily. In my opinion, Smith should walk into that team and McGoldrick should be in contention

wkj added 16:03 - Mar 20
I love seeing town players selected but I think Tommy Smith was definitely missed off; oh well I'm sure he'll just have to make do with player of the season for town :)

itfcjc added 16:11 - Mar 20
Carlos had a bad game other than the goal
The football league clearly don't watch the games when making their selections

francisb123 added 16:40 - Mar 20
100% agree with itfcjc, edwards was nothing more than average and jay tabb wasn't really in the game. If these 2 got in team of the week then everyone else must have been awful!

Dozzells_Bobblehat added 17:48 - Mar 20
Any, or all of our back five could have walked into that team, but our midfield were non existant second half. Very strange decisions.

Blue041273 added 20:27 - Mar 20
Maverick Mitch,

I guess your comment is directed at me. You are, of course, entitled to your opinion. I would just say that I was not slagging off our players but just offering an objective view that the TOTW selection is plain daft. No-one at PR on Saturday would have rated Carlos' performance as being one of the best in the Championship on that day. I happen to rate Carlos, but apart from his goal his general level of performance on Saturday was, in my view, nothing more than ordinary. If that gets him into the best eleven performers in the twelve Championship games, then the 'experts' selecting the TOTW need to look at other things than their own navels.

Always good to see our boys in the team of the week, But Both players were very shy at crossing saturday. But tabb for his ball winning, and I can only imagine Edwards goal got them in the team. By the way, Anyone else find it odd that tabb for his size always seems to get his head on the ball?

wkj added 22:29 - Mar 20
isn't it odd Johnny! the shorter players always seem to get their head to the ball while the big fellas (crouch; jet) all seem to favour staying on the ground

budgieplucker added 23:59 - Mar 20
Jay Tabb was excellent, unfortunately most supporters don't watch the players when they don't have the ball. I tend to do this when watching new players when they first come into the team its all too easy to make judgements simply when they have the ball. His tracking back, closing down and off the ball runs were excellent, I can see him playing in the centre as well. A very versatile player - I think Mick McCarthy is a shrewd judge players and I think this could signal the end for Lee Martin.

brockleyblueboy added 13:13 - Mar 21
How can you call yourselves ipswich fans. 2 of our players get in team of the week and all you can do is moan!!

Dammed if they do dammed if they dont.
