Although we will never know, sounds like it may have been unchanged otherwise! Injuries mounting up. Another striker out. Bench certainly not looking as strong. Nonetheless we have a good record away to a average Derby side. I'm hopeful.

I bloody knew it.....if Smith and Sears were fit he'd play the same poor performing team that played at Reading...Not good enough Mick..
I've so had enough of this dinosaur..

I thought we had no new injuries...

North stand you're talking sh1te.
You have no idea he had no changes planned. He may have wanted to drop Sears and Smith anyway
|boroughblue added 19:09 - Sep 13|
would of liked bish and lwarence in there somewhere. hopefully they'll both come off the bench at some point.

That's 4-5-1 not 4-3-3 then. Playing for a point again.
|marco007 added 19:09 - Sep 13|
Chambers, Bru, Skuse, Douglas and long throws from Knudson zzzzzzzz
Thank goodness for Grant and Ward
I'm sure it would have been unchanged otherwise and the faltering team that played at Reading would have been rewarded with another game
Neil Warnock please save us :)

The Romford Blue ..... Behave! Do you actually watch Ipswich much of course it would have been unchanged; McCarthy has his favourites and will always play them even if they aren't in the right position, Sears would have been dropped ages ago by another manager 33 games no goals for a striker aswell! Best forced changes we could have hoped for, bout time Sears wasn't playing as he has been rubbish for ages now, hard work doesn't make up for lack of quality I'm
Afraid. And smith was woeful at reading. Need a win tonight! Can't keep making excuses for all these performances and points dropped against team who aren't actually any good

In for an 'injured' Smith and Sears. I think that's MM telling us he's letting them rest at home rather than drop them to the bench. C'mon.. How often does Smith pick up an injury.

Good to see kenlock and Emmanuel back on the bench, would love it if either came on over the out of form full backs. Also don't buy that smith and Sears are injured after McCarthys comments. I think he's finally aware of fans continues abuse of his selections.
|Seasider added 19:37 - Sep 13|
Wonder if Chambers will still be playing right back for Ipswich when he is 35?Expect he would be if we still have same Manager;but I will be nearly 80 by then;so wonder if I shall still be alive to see a different right back play for my beloved Ipswich Town lol ?!
|Bluetone added 19:39 - Sep 13|
Same style, same hoofball same manager and most likely be the same crap. Please McCarthy just go times have left you behind, way behind.
|blues1 added 19:40 - Sep 13|
Now the lawn. Out of form full backs? Yes, Knudsen made an awful error in giving away the penalty on Friday but he has been our best defender by a mile so far this season . While i agree Chambers is far from the best at rb, Emmanual is nowhere near ready for 1st team football. He's been murdered at times in the u23s and fear the same would happen in the 1st team . More 1 for the future than the present imo.
|ITFCsince67 added 19:43 - Sep 13|
How can Chambers be selected tonight at RB. Shocking
|prebbs007 added 19:45 - Sep 13|
Still the worst two fullbacks in the league. Still the slowest two CM in the league. Pathetic dinosaur
Hoping for a miracle please.
|TimmyH added 19:46 - Sep 13|
I thought Mick said the team came through unscathed after the Reading game?...so really enforced changes, quite a handy one for Mick with Smith injured, shame Chambers doesn't get injured more often!
Please Mick get Lawrence on the field tonight at some stage (not the last 5 minutes) and see what he can do.

Smith is at Blacksmiths getting his boots made
|MadDog added 20:06 - Sep 13|
Hoping for another draw then!!
|ArnieM added 20:09 - Sep 13|
"injured", my arse.Dropped more like and that's thd right decision on both counts.
|whosroundisitanyway added 20:15 - Sep 13|
Think you're right.
Just not hanging them out to dry in public.
|neil1968 added 20:26 - Sep 13|
If the radio is anything to go by we are playing like a joke team . Had enough already this season . Itfc is no more . Just go McCarthy
|northstand78 added 20:34 - Sep 13|
Romford blue...I've been around long enough to know when I'm being taken for an idiot..
Your talking like an ads....
