Celina: My Best Goal So Far
at 11:02:09

Well done Bersant, one of the very best goals seen at Portman Road. With Bersant in the team we always have a chance of producing key moments. When our players don’t have time to think too much the end result is usually a goal. Macauley Bonne is a good example of that.

PS I thought the number of supporters Crewe brought considering they are bottom of the league and the game was played on a Sunday was impressive.

Ipswich Town 2-1 Crewe Alexandra - Match Report
at 19:52:01

Very pleased with the three points in a game that could have gone horribly wrong.
Not for the first time we were absolutely brilliant as an attacking force for the first twenty or so minutes. Crewe could not get near our slick one touch passing and during this time our players showed great skill with movement and passing made through instinct. Then after that the players started to think about what they were doing and this slowed our game and allowed Crewe more time to shore up their defence.
I think this is our problem, when we overthink what we are doing. Moments of brilliance such as Aluko for his amazing run and trickery with our first goal and Celina for his outstanding goal are prime examples.
When we play to our instincts there is no team in league one that can live with us. Sadly we do it only for short periods in a game.
The players don’t need to get hung up on formations as they are capable of drifting in and out of positions across the park. Our management just need to drill this into them as it will raise confidence and ultimately produce many more points than we are currently picking up.
PS I’m disappointed to still see so many negative comments about Paul Cook. We have just won the game and I would have thought that should be enough to be happy about today.
Paul Cook may or may not be the man who takes us up. I hope so but let’s give him a full season to see what he can do.

Very pleased for him. He deserves success with the excellent attitude he has always shown during arguably the most difficult times in the club’s history. I also think he has been one of our best players this season.

Cook: Performance Against Rotherham Everything I Dislike About a Team
at 13:29:31

Paul Cook is correct with his views, which I would think are shared by most supporters. At the beginning of the season although results weren’t great at least we gave it a good go. I don’t see that so much with our home performances of late.
We need to just go and give it a go and trust that we score more than we concede. Playing sideways and backwards will not allow that. It may be we will still lose some games but at least give it a good go.
There are old pilots and there are bold pilots but there are no old bold pilots!

Well done lads, great win. Never a classic but kept going and the effort paid off.
We are brilliant going forward but I can never sit comfortably with how we struggle to defend crosses. If that can be sorted we will be unplayable in league One.

Nsiala: Three Points Would Be Massive
at 10:01:37

Toto is one of the nice guys who I’m sure all our supporters would like to see do well. He has come through some difficult times at the club and had to battle hard with the out of depth Paul Hurst and seemingly Paul Lambert who wasn’t too keen on Toto as a player.
It was interesting to read that in his opinion it’s completely different to what it was two years ago!
I wonder just how bad it was then with a mix of management who lost their way and a squad with some players who were just too comfortable and in my opinion just going through the motions.
Keep battling Toto because we can only get promoted with people showing your commendable attitude.

Cook: I Don't Have Yes-Men Around Me
at 11:59:44

Well said blues1, I was thinking the same regarding bringing Nsiala on and it’s always easy in hindsight. Nsiala is a whole hearted player but experience tells us he is very prone to giving away free kicks in dangerous positions or even penalties.
We should have had enough fire power to kill off Cambridge and on another day we would have. To try and shore up the defence and probably end up sitting deep would have been asking for trouble.
Our defence had an off day along with us stopping to attack is why we lost.
Going back to the actual subject I hope he has people around him who are strong enough to voice their own opinions. Being honest I am bemused by the vast number of opinions he could end up listening to. His supporting staff numbers are huge.

Hladký Plays Down Penalty Prowess

I wish Vaclav the very best of luck in Suffolk.
Sorry but there is only one penalty king though, that being Paul Cooper. If Vaclav can perform anywhere near as good as Paul then we will have a good keeper on our books.
PS we don’t have too much fried food here. Cannot beat a Brontosaurus sized piece of fried Haddock served up with plenty of chips!

Ipswich Town 2-1 Shrewsbury Town - Match Report
at 07:33:39

A welcome win and good performance in patches. I cannot quite get to grips as to why we are allowing nearly all opponents back into the game though. The only observation I have which could be relevant is that we always have large gaps in centre midfield. With the preferred two of Evans and Morsy now in place I thought this issue would be resolved yet time and time again teams get through us down the middle. Even Shrewsbury managed it. That is still a worry for me.
I know it won’t happen but we really need to get another one in the middle which could only happen if there was a formation change.
