Cornell and McGuinness in Team of the Week
Monday, 26th Apr 2021 10:27
Blues pair Dai Cornell has been named in both the Sky Bet EFL and League One Teams of the Week with Mark McGuinness in the latter for their performances in Saturday’s 0-0 home draw with AFC Wimbledon.
Cornell saved a penalty on his return to the side, while McGuinness was part of the backline in front of him as the Blues kept a clean sheet.
Former Blues loanee Matt Pennington, now with Shrewsbury, joins Cornell in both select XIs.

Is this a joke? Mcguiness was woeful and Cornell didn't come out and his area once. Quite hilarious really.

Just how many times did McG get his body on the line,funny I must of been watching a different camera,goalie saves a penalty think that’s massive, maybe when he’s played a game or 2 he might command his box more, yes they made a massive mistake but McG got them out of it

I like to be optimistic and praise the performances of our players......when they deserve it. Not trying to bash the lad down....hes had a few decent games for us. But McG gave away a needless penalty, got caught out of position and was turned a number of occasions by their forward. Agree he did improve as the game went on......but best player on the pitch....heck no......our team......absolutely not.........team of the week......what game were they watching!?
Cornell didnt come off his line for corners/crosses(like Holy) which looked as it could cost us but he made a handful of very good stops and deserves his place in team of week.

Having said all of the above....I guess it was a clean sheet so congrats to McG.

It's really come to something when we have a goalkeeper and central defender in team of the week against the mighty Wimbledon at home...this lot should bow their heads in shame.

Funny how people watching the same game see different things. Mick Mills was slating McGuiness which whilst I could understand from a 'ball-playing' perspective, felt was harsh simply because he was getting his body in the way time after time.

If the players are reading some of the stuff written about them in these columns, no wonder they are disillusioned.
Isn't it time we 'supporters' were more positive?
|Aussieblue added 12:25 - Apr 26|
Just goes to show how bad league 1 really is.

Blimey! I've actually thought that overall McG has been quite reasonable, but I would have had last Sat. down as one of his poorer performances.

Other than the penalty MMG foolishly gave away he was solid and won almost every aerial challenge. He also made some excellent blocks and interceptions. He wasn’t perfect but he was definitely the pick of the defenders along with Cornell who not only saved a penalty but also made other decent saves and was quick and brave off his line to deal with one on ones. He could be criticised for not claiming crosses but again we would be splitting hairs. In comparison with someone like Edwards they were both ten times better.

Good to see Pennington also in the team. Excellent defender whilst with the town.
|positivity added 13:38 - Apr 26|
mcguinness?? gave away (another) pen, and although he got a couple of toto-esque blocks, i'd say he was the weakest of the backline.
cornell started nervously, but played pretty well after the pen save, deserved motm (for us at least)

However loads of our fans think McGuiness is rubbish!
|VanDusen added 13:51 - Apr 26|
Jeez - did Arsenal pay the compilers to raise his value in this way? Clearly no-one watched the actual match anyway given McGuinness was a liability pretty much every time he got the ball... Maybe they were misled by Brenner's commentary when he incorrectly credited McGuinness with a fantastic clearance by Woolfenden?!
|Linkboy13 added 14:39 - Apr 26|
Remember Maitlen Nials was rubbish when he played for us, he's now playing regularly in the premier league. McGuinness came to Ipswich on the back of some very good performances for Arsenal u23s and was outstanding against us. Mcgoldrick and Webster move on and also play regularly in the Premier league. Now what does that say about the state of our shambles of a club it's not rocket science is it.

Managers and supporters see things differently shock...
|PortmanTerrorist added 17:09 - Apr 26|
Geeez. What were they watching or is this based on stats alone ?!
Be nice to win something and feel proud rather than a fraud; hopefully neither player takes this seriously, though it probably matters not either way now as we need better and that is bl**ding obvious.

The bar for this award must be so low its under the ground.
