How have we not had any players in this before?! Hard to think that there's been better performances than some of our individuals recently, murphy's scored 9 in 9 where's his mention? I quite like the fact we're going under the radar in terms of the media but it would be nice to start getting a bit more praise than we are!

Agree 100% with simonds, bit of a fix all this player of the year , team of the week stuff , same players always win.

It is a bit of a difficult task in all fairness. How do they choose? Has everone on the panel watched every match in the football league? Bit of a toughy.

But surely Murphy is a no-brainer...this week especially.....

Green_Army added 15:17 - Dec 8
Who cares if we don't get the praise we deserve. Keeps us under the radar that way. The lads and Mick know they are doing a good job and that's all that matters.

I'm a big fan of Chambers, and his cross for the equaliser was very good (as was his knock down at the beginning of that move). But I felt he made a mistake for their goal.

Actually, I thought S.Hunt's set piece deliveries were excellent. Murphy's heaader was outrageous, but he should have made more of two other chances on his left foot, one in each half.

Yes, I'm being nit picky. In general it was a very good display.

Basically all the strikers on the team of the week scored a hat trick, that's why they're in there above murphy. Who needs to be in a poxy team of the week anyway. As long as town keep winning and the players keep playing with confidence, that's all that matters

We will get all the praise and more if we are in the premiership come the end of the season!!

How on earth is Murphy not in there instead of bloody Martin?

Guthrum added 18:16 - Dec 8
Isn't it nice to be debating which (and how many) of our excellent squad ought to be in some "team of the week", rather than scraping around for anyone who might just about qualify?

dusth added 19:30 - Dec 8
I fancy us to beat this team even without Chambo. They're playing a rather dodgy 3-4-3.

CavendishBlue added 20:49 - Dec 8
Agree with commuterblue about Chambers as he played both assister and scorer of their first goal 'onside'.

This must just be a crude analysis from prostat or whatever they call it?

gazzmac4 added 08:47 - Dec 9
Dusth- hahaha that made me laugh! Someone tell the owners of this team that 343 only ever works on Fifa!!

Much like the 424 of World Cup 98 on the N64/PC!

Kirbmeister added 09:46 - Dec 9
Town have always been 'under the radar' both with the BBC and the amateurish local TV sports reports where they are so biased towards Norwich it's untrue! They hate it now we are above them in the league.

Kieron_FJ added 10:47 - Dec 9
Great to see!, good confidence boost for Chambo and MM.
Lets crack on and see more of these throughout the season, since they really deserve it ,
Couldn't agree more with you Kirbmeister!,

ipswich_Jordy added 10:49 - Dec 9
sorry didn't mean to dislike Kieron FJ agree with you 100%

dusth added 19:32 - Dec 9
Don't tell me about local TV. "Norwich battled magnificently to keep the deficit down to two goals while at a rather dispirited Portman Road Ipswich managed to come back from a a poor first display to scrape home 5 - 1."
