In Paul Cook’s interviews he has hinted at getting Leam Richardson in as assistant manager at the end of the season. Having been his long term assistant prior to coming here, does anyone have any insight into how important he is to Cook’s success? He’s currently managing Wigan and I see they beat MK Dons 3-0 yesterday. If they stay up, presumably he’d stay on as their manager rather than come here as an assistant. I hope this isn’t another Lambert / Culverhouse scenario. I guess this is why Gary Roberts has come in as backup if Richardson doesn’t end up here.
We’ve lost 1 game after winning the last 3 with very much the same team. Yes we were bad today, but the way some posters are overreacting is a joke.
Ipswich fans used to be known for being fair and giving the players a chance. Now one bad result and everyones sh1t. Yes our squad is bloated. Some of the players are dead wood. Most of the loanees are unnecessary, but come on, we have the backbone of a decent squad here.
If Cook loses the next game will there be people calling for his head? So fickle.
Maybe that’s not such a bad thing. After all, we don’t know the real intentions of these US investors. Also Marcus is honourable in keeping us afoot and does appear to have grown more passionate about us recently.
It will only work out if Marcus learns from his mistakes in the past. He needs to bring in a proper CEO to run things. He can’t do it himself.
Anyone who’s seen or watched much about Brett M Johnson and his other clubs will know that a certain player has been quite a big factor. That player played for Galatasaray and then went to Phoenix Rising (where he also became an investor). That player is very famous and is now retired from playing. Maybe that player is now looking to get into management. That player is...
I just watched this interview with him on YouTube about his development in Pawtucket. The interviewer is a bit of a clueless berk, but I think Johnson comes across really well. He is clearly intelligent, respectful and knowledgeable. The best thing is that he genuinely seems to love and ‘get’ football (having lived and worked in London). Interestingly he calls it football and not soccer. I’ve got a pretty good feeling about this (if, of course, it happens...)
