Ladapo: Buzzing to Have Signed
at 20:47:57

Talk, athletic, good in the air and a presence in the box - all things we have lacked for some time, probably since Murphy…………………

………………looks possible!?!

Ipswich Town 4-0 Charlton Athletic - Match Report
at 14:34:44

Good to sign off with a win and a convincing one, but, as McK said before the game doesn’t really mean or count for anything going forward.

Still time for him to have a full pre season now and I think a fair amount of change with incomings and outgoings needed.

May be with new owners stability and approach, we have the beginnings of a basis to push on and get out of this depressing division, back where we belong. So hope at last, but next year needs to be much, much better………..

Ipswich Town 2-2 Wigan Athletic - Match Report
at 22:02:27

Should’ve won, Wigan not a great team, but, again we didn’t and also could’ve lost but for a lucky equaliser. Played well at times, but as often we promised more than we delivered, with little end result/not many big opportunities. Burgess, Woolfy, Chaplin and Walton good, but a lot of others just huffed and puffed as usual and some just not up to it - need a completely new left side and, obviously, upfront we are at best pedestrian with little threat or creative spark.

So a lot of work/rebuilding still to do for next season with those two as the priority areas.

Ipswich Town 0-1 Cambridge United - Match Report
at 17:22:50

Well, proven not good enough for this season and our major deficiency glaringly obvious - we don’t create enough real opportunities, never mind score enough goals. Started sloppy and never really got better…………………

Didn’t understand the team selection - Norwood, Chaplin and Carroll instead of Bonne, Aluko and Bakinson??? Made no sense to me and surely we can have the option to go two upfront when it is a must win against a lesser team at home?!?

Another lost season thanks to the early matches. Not Mckenna’s fault - you can’t expect to have to win every game to catch up……………………

Very disappointing, but no question the club is at last on the up after 15 yrs of Evans destruction and despair. I can only see more radical changes in the summer with a number of players moving on. Assuming Bonne goes back to QPR think we need at least 3 new strikers, may be 4 to take us forward. Carroll and Penny also contributed little - left back/side still needs to be addressed.

Morsy Led to Believe Jackson Will Sign New Deal

……………..if Bonne doesn’t stay, we need at least one, probably two proven first choice goal scorers. Then we would really rip it up……………………!

Brilliant, we stay alive and put pressure on a rival. Thoroughly deserved particularly in our first half display when we totally dominated a decent team.

Morsy a lion MOTM and defence so good again - another clean sheet and never gave Plym a sniff. They didn’t have a shot on target…………….

Could’ve/Should’ve won by more - great team performance all round and we move on…………………..

Oxford United 1-1 Ipswich Town - Match Report
at 17:11:03

Gutted - brilliant second half performance when the whole team stood up away against a good Ox side. 30 seconds to go and we concede from a corner!?! Unbelievable - why Ipswich, why???

Sounded like a close contest between two good sides and pretty even first half while the elements were against us, albeit Burns always threatening as usual. Much better in the second half with the wind behind us and we began to impose ourselves and dominate.

Also noticeably upped our game when Morsy and Bonne came on, who both contributed strongly - Bonne should start as first lead striker. Burns and Bakinson also very influential throughout, with Celina more present in the second half. Defence also again solid and Burgess and Walton very good. Chaplin and Donacien as well, but probably everybody really………………..

……………but how can that happen?!? We toughed it out for 90 mins+ and so deserved to win!

Still alive, but need to win them all…………………….

McKenna: Jackson Injury Significant But I Can See Him Being Part of the Future Here
at 15:42:08

Have to admit KJ has surprised me over the last few weeks, so credit to him, but looking at his record over his whole time with us, come the end of the season surely we can do better?!? Strikes me as a speedy athlete, but not sure he is a technically a footballer of any note and his first touch is almost always dire………………..

Ipswich Town 0-0 Portsmouth - Match Report

Sounded like we shaded it, but a tough game where two decent teams largely cancelled each other out with few outright scoring opportunities.

Sadly not enough with the ground we have to catch up and injuries also worryingly mounting.

So frustrating and not enough - we need to win to stay alive……………………

Ipswich Town 2-0 Lincoln City - Match Report
at 21:54:16

At long last we are heading in the right direction - 9 wins from 14, another clean sheet and playing decent football as well. If only we’d had McKenna from the start of the season and weren’t playing so much catch up!

First half very good and well worth our 2-0, second half less so and a bit scrappy, but still solid at the back and gave Lincoln nothing. So game fizzled out, but worrying injury concerns.

Aluko star man and defence sound again of course. Still need to be convinced about our striking options, but with that exception think this is currently our strongest line up, with Chaplin coming on from the bench.

Hopefully Edmundson, Morsy, Burns and Woolfy fit and well.

Other results not helpful, but still believe…………………….

Like Cheltenham, except worse - 75% possession, 12 corners, dominated as much as you can, but we can’t score!!! Then a stupid goal just given away.

Celina must start every game!

4 points lost - so frustrating and rapidly heading to the last chance saloon.

We are a striker short of being a good team - none of Nors, Bonne, Pig or Jackson good enough………………….

COYB - turn this around ASAP!!!

Ipswich Town 0-0 Cheltenham Town - Match Report
at 21:52:03


Dominated the game as much as I have seen for a long time from the get go with nearly 70% possession and Morsy and Celina running the show, albeit in different ways. Lots of chances and great, fluid attacking play, particularly out wide on both sides. Should’ve been 3 up by half-time and Chelt just not in it, but we didn’t score……………

…………….and surprise, surprise they came out better in the second half and we lost our way and struggled to create anything meaningful. Didn’t give the ball enough to Celina and his influence disappeared. Similar with others and we let Chelt grow in to the game and give us some uncomfortable moments towards the end. Ambitious subs to win the game and a bit more animated in the last quarter, but a massive opportunity for another 3 points lost. So frustrating, especially given other results. Based on the first half we should’ve won easily!!!

Wet and windy to start and ref a total numpty, but defence rock solid with Walton and Morsy commanding as ever and Burns and Aluko class! Jackson also very good?!?

Could’ve, should’ve won by more - comfortable and played them off the park after the second goal.

MK Dons 0-0 Ipswich Town - Match Report
at 17:02:41

Sounded like really tight game between two good sides.

Didn’t and will never understand Jackson playing?!? But decent team apart from that with Aluko available from the bench and only Evans missing.

Dons started the better and took the game to Town in the first 10 mins, but after that we came in to it and started to dominate with Morsy leading from the front and Chaplin, Celina and Burns pushing to create the opportunity. MK then pushed back in the last 10 mins before half-time and had a couple of chances that we did well to stand up against.

Second half pretty even as well, albeit Town continuing to push, but game deteriorated as both teams got a bit edgy. Walton, as usual, crucially stood strong when necessary!

So another clean sheet, take the away point and Oxford lose! Now need to really capitalise in the next few games and then…………………

Doncaster Rovers 0-1 Ipswich Town - Match Report

Another 3 points and we controlled the game, dominating a poor Donny side from start to finish. Much better than Sat, but still not great and we made hard work of it as we again struggled to create many outright scoring opportunities or make the final pass tell. We should’ve won comfortably, by 3 or 4.

So no real standouts, just a solid team performance and we avoided a mistake at the back……………….just. Walton quality though, Chaplin busy and Celina promised - just give him the ball more!

Other results good also, so 6 points off 5th and all to play for!!!
