Taylor: Massively Disappointing Because We Did Enough to Win
at 00:13:54

Someone on the management team might usefully explain to our players that their job is to get the ball in the net at one end of the field and keep it out of the net at the other end. They might need to say which end is which.

Wycombe Wanderers 1-1 Ipswich Town- Match Report
at 18:23:21

Watched most of it on TV. Pýortmanteau has just about summed it up. The standard is awful. These people are actually paid to play football and they practise all week. Why can't they make a better job of it on the day?

Reading 2-2 Ipswich Town - Match Report
at 18:04:40

I went to the match. Highly entertaining and It lived up to the cliche, a game of two halves. Truthful summaries by both managers. Town played well in the first half and Reading in the second half. Town could/should have scored two more goals in that blistering opening period. Disappointingly, there was a lot more long ball hit and hope after Roberts went off. But on this showing there's every hope of survival.

My Life and Times as an Ipswich Supporter
at 22:48:33

This blog chimes with me. The first Town match I attended at Portman Road was versus Bishop Auckland in the FA Cup Third Round Proper on January 8, 1954. Town drew 2-2 and lost the replay the following Wednesday 3-0. After that disappointing start, I was lucky enough to enjoy the exhilarating days of Ramsey, Robson and Burley. Keane and Jewell were, let's say, the anti-climax. I seldom get to Portman Road these days as I have a long distance to travel but I keep up with what goes on, via newspapers, radio and the telly, and I get to at least two of the nearer-to-me away games each season. I don't much like what I have read, heard or seen this past few seasons. It saddens me that our wonderful club has fallen into such a moribund state, and I hope for a return to better times in future, although, realistically, I don't think they could ever again be as good as in times past when we had local owners who cared and were seen to care, and managers who built teams that played the beautiful game adventurously. Sadly, the game itself isn't what it was then. Boringly, it is dominated by a few big boys with all the money and all the clout. As I see it, the best the rest can aspire to now is promotion followed by survival for a season or two in the bottom half of the Premier League as little more than cannon fodder for the biggies. And, of course, the consolation prize of parachute money when eventually relegated. Compared with the heady achievements of the long-gone glory days, it isn't much to hope for. Although it's a lot better than the prospect of hoofing along forever, mid-table forever, in Division Two (sorry, The Championship).

If only we could sign the entire Rochdale team. Or get their manager to give MM and TC some lessons in coaching players.

McCarthy Targeting Top Six Ahead of Season Opener Against Birmingham
at 13:39:45

A sensible comment, LondonBlue73. Mr Evans either doesn't have the money or has the money and (perhaps understandably) doesn't wish to splurge a lot more of it on players for ITFC. If the latter, perhaps his experiences with Messrs Keane and Jewell have some significance. While he continues to emulate the Trappist monk it is unlikely that we shall find out.

Lincoln City 1-0 Ipswich Town - Match Report
at 10:48:52

Valid and thoughtful contributions by Matthew Crush and Blueactually75. But nothing excuses the abysmal display against Lincoln in front of an audience of reportedly nine million viewers. Professional footballers of whatever level should be capable of passing to one another, win or lose.

McCarthy: Awful Goals Conceded on Bad Day at the Office
at 08:59:57

I saw my first Town game in 1947. If memory serves, we were not too slick then. I watched this one on TV. Not much different as far as Town are concerned. But part of me enjoyed the game as it was a wonderful demo by Forest of getting the job done with some skill. If Assombalonga had lasted the entire game he would surely have scored more. Though on this showing Forest only need him part time. As for Town players, you would think that on show to the world they would be at their best. If most of them were, then heaven help us. I felt sorry for MM. He was plainly hurt by their inept display. Sad days.

Reading is one of the few grounds I can usually get to each season these days but last night I couldn't be bothered to make the 50-mile trip and I'm glad I didn't. I watched instead on NowTV and wished I hadn't bothered with that either. The £6.99 it cost me was a waste of money - would have been better spent on a corn plaster. Would someone please inform our hoofers that Murphy isn't there any more.
