O'Neill: Resume the Season When It's Safe to Do So
at 17:04:07

I would think the season will soon be declared null and void. Will no doubt upset several but realistically can anyone really see the environment be safe enough in the next two or three months?
Even if it is the players are unlikely to be match fit enough to go straight into playing games.
I would have thought the best chance we have is to prepare for a new season starting in August. Hopefully that time frame may be achievable.

Confirmation of Behind Closed Doors Games Expected Today
at 17:18:24

Judging by the majority of previous comments I know I shall be caned but if we as season ticket holders are not receiving the product we paid for then compensation should be made. The facts could be that if all future games are to be played behind closed doors that will mean we can only see a maximum of 75% of the games we paid for. I include Bury’s demise in that figure. How can it be right for the club to expect season ticket holders to pay for a service they are not receiving? That applies to services paid for in any industry too.
I also am mindful, respectful and appreciative of the terrible fate some have endured with the virus. I am in no way trying to put money before health but fairs fair.

Town: EFL Guidance is Business as Usual

What’s the point of playing games behind closed doors other than to finish the season.
Football is supposed to be a spectator sport.

Town Announce Needham Link-Up
at 15:58:19

Pleased for Needham but why do Ipswich not show any apparent interest in linking with clubs such as Lowestoft Town as well?
I am somewhat biased having been born and brought up in Lowestoft but sadly it annoys me when I see the efforts of Norwich City who do forge links with Lowestoft.
Over the past few years Lowestoft has been turning Yellow and Green and it seems that Lowestoft and district is not of interest to Ipswich.
It’s not just football. Years ago my daughters had to fight through all sorts to get a chance to play Hockey for Suffolk. That was because the selectors did not look past Ipswich, Bury StEdmunds and Framlingham.
Lowestoft is by a long way the second most populated Town in the county, there is much football talent to be scouted. Clubs such as Lowestoft, Kirkley and Pakefield, Beccles Town and Mutford & Wrentham have considerable talent.
Basically wake up Ipswich Town you will need all the good local players very soon!

Skuse: Performance Showed We’ve Not Thrown in the Towel
at 13:13:10

Currently on holiday in Tenerife which is where my money for not renewing season ticket next year will be spent.
Life is about enjoyment. Sadly I have not enjoyed much football at Portman Road for three or four years. Our club is a shambles.
Enough is enough, decision made I can get more enjoyment watching local football at the likes of Mutford and Wrentham!

Ipswich Town 0-1 Oxford United - Match Report
at 06:33:26

Sorry to post dreary comments on such an equally wet and dreary morning weather wise but there has been much talk by many including myself who would like new owners for our club. That really is the only way for us to move on. We are good at producing youngsters but very rarely do we keep them. The concern is that we are far from an attractive proposition for potential buyers. Please correct me if my understanding is wrong but an ever increasing large debt has to be paid for, we do not own the ground we play on although own the buildings (a lot of which are in a poor state.) Geographically I think we are ok as we can easily be reached from the South and the Midlands. The North is a bit different. The big saleable asset is the training facility but if that went we would still need somewhere else.
All in all and the point of my post is that I cannot see how we are going to climb the divisions again. Certainly not in my lifetime.
Sorry again for a dull post. At least the weather should improve this afternoon.

Ipswich Town 0-1 Oxford United - Match Report
at 20:00:57

Apart from conceding the goal I quite enjoyed the first half. Quality was not great as you would expect from third division teams but there was plenty of action. Second half was poor and we never looked like getting anything out of the game.
Oxford were efficient and well organised whereas we largely did a lot of running but with no end product.
I don’t blame the players as they are playing to the best of their ability. Although it did baffle me how last week they finished off moves like Harry Kane and this week finished them like Harry Worth (for those of you old enough to remember him!)
I fear our fate will be a continuation of our decline in to mid table mediocrity next season and beyond that will result in quite low attendances and an even poorer quality of football.
I looked around the stadium today and thought what an unattractive place it now is. A traditional old ground with heaps of history that has been allowed to deteriorate. Thousands of £’s are required on maintenance. It is very shabby. I also noticed Many light bulbs not working on our floodlights both on the corner pylons and in the tops of the side stands. The playing surface is the worst I can recall seeing it too. Our old groundsman Mr Ferguson wanted to have it dug up and deep renovation work carried out years ago but instead all they did was to replace the turf!
What an absolute mess our club is in.

Former Blues Defender Smith Joins Sunderland
at 07:36:18

I don’t think there would be so much discussion about this had Tommy not been such a likeable chap. His attitude and effort could never be faulted but his performances did not always reach the same high standards.
Sentiment aside I think this is the right move for both parties. Hopefully Tommy will do well at Sunderland as it’s always good to see the nice guys do well.

Ipswich Town 4-1 Burton Albion - Match Report
at 19:07:23

I have been critical of late but fair play today as the lads didn’t let their heads drop after a poor opening twenty minutes or so. Thankfully we didn’t rue missing those early glaring opportunities.
Need to go on a lengthy run to convince me that we can cut the mustard though.
Flynn Downes just gets better as the season wears on, what a player we have there. Thought the chap from Preston looked composed as well in trying conditions.
Here’s hoping for a good run!

A great opportunity for Hogg but sadly more evidence of our fast declining club, losing assets and unlikely to replace them with similar quality.
