Pigott: We're Ready For the Challenge
Wednesday, 4th Aug 2021 19:29

New Blues striker Joe Pigott believes the Blues are ready for the challenge of what he expects to be a tougher League One than last season ahead of Saturday’s opener against Morecambe at Portman Road.

The 27-year-old joined Town from AFC Wimbledon last month and scored his first goal in a Town shirt in the friendly at Colchester.

“When you look at the players here and what is going on behind the scenes and the foundations that are being put in place, this club is ready to go," Pigott told the club website.

“League One is a tough league and I think it will be harder than last season but we are all ready for the challenge.

“We are all looking forward to Saturday and experiencing the atmosphere at the stadium.

“I don’t want to call Ipswich a sleeping giant but it’s a massive club and if we build up some momentum and kick on, I think we can be a real force.”

Am too old to be this excited but am soooo looking forward to the next few seasons in which am sure there will be ups and downs.

However, to correct the statement that "its the hope that kills you", we ITFC supporters know it is the singular lack of hope which really does for you. I am delighted to have hopes again and genuinely believe that even if it takes time, better days lie ahead! COYB

I can live with whatever the score line is on Saturday, win or lose, as long as I feel entertained again. I've missed that with previous seasons. I'm optimistic that we all will be & fingers crossed it'll be a solid win!

PortmanTerrorist - Those are my exact thoughts too. It is the lack of hope, more than anything else, that has taken me to an all time low as a lifelong Town supporter.

I do think that a revolution has happened at Town over the summer though and we have two days left to start the revolution on the pitch. My hope is now off the scale but my expectation levels do remain realistic as we are in for one hell of a battle this season with all teams looking to raise their game against us. COYB
