It's about time this passing across the back four was given the big heave ho, it's not nice to watch and it's dangerous with the standard of our players!

Most of the time the results of this tedious tactic is either a hoof upfield from the keeper (why can't an outfield player do it?), a narrow escape from an opposition attacker almost robbing the ball, or as per last night a Roy Orbison impersonator!

That calamity of a bad pass couldn't have been any better for them if had been set up by a Col U player.
To add insult to injury, our shot misses were inexcusable and almost comical.
I'd put the lot of them on shooting practice every day for the next month until they hit the back of the net 100% of the time. T clarify, I mean the opposition net and not ours - thought I'd clarify based on that performance.
I feel like Col U should send us all a bunch of flowers and a bereavement card with "sorry for your loss" inside.

Hope Humph finds his shooting boots as he knows how to find space & Evans shot was a cracker, but what is evident that as well as the awful pass, our central defenders are alway standing off players giving them room unlike the opposition who always mark us tight.

Do we do any "Finishing Training" ? - Should have been at least 5-1 to Town.

Ipswich 80-81 season

Ipswich play 66 games that season.
They played in the old first division, league cup, the FA cup and UEFA cup.
They finished second in the league, reached the semi final of the FA cup and won the UEFA cup.
They played a total of 66 competitive games.
Paul Cooper, Terry Butcher, Russel Osman, Arnold Muhren, John Wark, Alan Brazil, Eric Gates and Paul Mariner played in over 58 games each, that season. Mick Mills and Frans Thijssen over 50 games each.
Russel Osman played in all 66 games !!!

So 8 out of 11 players featuring in over
88% of games.

In addition, some factors worked against the players back then.
Whilst the football was no heavier at kick off compared to todays ball, if it was damp/ wet weather , the football then became significantly heavier during the game. The state of some pitches looked like ploughed fields. It was hard going. Not the powder puff state of todays game.

Explain to me why we can not have at least 8 of our first team squad, playing most competitive games ? that includes the EFL and FA cups.

Our current team might then stand some chance of playing with the telepathic , mesmerising manner that Sir Bobbys teams did.
They played a very similar backbone to the team , week after week after week, regardless of the importance of the match.

It's not rocket science, oh and please buy an actual goal scoring forward.

Defending 101... lacking options?.Lump it forward, never cross your own box

Mistakes are mistakes. Many are made in every game. Unfortunately, our mistakes were well and truly punished in this game.
As long as we have learnt from them and can stop making them this game will be forgotten in time.

Tale of a whole host of missed chances. The quota must surely even itself out over the season. Sometimes its easier to score than blast over the bar?
