Coulson and Walton Closing in on Returns, Aluko Back But Setback for Nolan
at 11:10:18

Obviously more to it with Nolan than just recovering from injury. The club have a duty to get him fit but unfortunately don't seem able to. Couldn't last season either. Think best for all concerned that an agreement to be reached between player and club. Both need to move on.

Morsy: We Let Ourselves Down
at 11:53:01

Get used to teams playing like this, until you do you'll stay in this league. If you don't work as hard as the opposition you can have all the skill in the world but they will overcome you. As a team you need to have different capabilities to change tactics if certain ones are not working. Mr Cook if you always play to the same pattern as a team and have not got a plan A, B or C you are very easy to counteract as the opposition know exactly what to do and what you don't like. I have worked it out and I'm not a manager! Don't let us play out from the back, play a high pressure game and that makes us nervy in possession and makes us lump the ball up long to as isolated forward.

Butcher: I Want to See Football With No Heading
at 11:44:39

Would be a bit like boxing without the punches. Don't agree with no heading. Older players used different balls to the ones now in use. Older balls were laced up leather balls, as heavy as hell and doubled in weight when it was wet.

Ipswich Town 1-2 West Ham U21s - Match Report
at 22:39:41

I went tonight and for a lot of the game it looked like West Ham had more players on the pitch, never a good sign. The system Cook uses has been sussed by every club we have played so far and quite honestly I can see any team which is put in front of us we would be able to beat. It is painful to watch. It's like going to the dentist every game now. Cook with all his new players seems lost and devoid of any actions to get us going. Players now look even more disjointed, unfit and unsure. I can see us still trying to gel next May. I was one who could see a poor start coming and had low expectations with all the changes in place but we really should be starting to see positive signs by now, but it seems we are going backwards and all signs of any confidence with the players is slowly draining away.

Town Close in On Celina Loan Signing
at 13:07:54

Personally I think this is now a pointless signing, no doubt I'll get shot down for saying it. Were starting to get too many players in certain positions which will cause unhappy players. I get you need competition but not sure Celina is a good fit. We need a commanding midfielder. Last 2 games we've not controlled midfield. Thank goodness we hopefully have just signed a goalkeeper who can catch and hold onto the ball. Hopefully that will give the defence a bit of confidence too.

Cheltenham Town 2-1 Ipswich Town - Match Report
at 22:46:41

A game of 2 halves. 1st half excellent, only one team in it. How the hell Bonne could mess up that certain goal scoring chance is beyond me and no doubt he will relive that moment for many nights to come, very poor. If we'd have gone 2 up the game would have panned out differently........or would it? Penny's goal, what can you say, he'll probably never ever score another and certainly not better than that. 2nd half was the opposite of the 1st a complete shambles of a team, no cohesion and a defence that looked like conceding from every free kick, corner and throw in to Cheltenham. Cheltenham were a well drilled side that played to their strengths, as all sides that play us do. Forget another player signing, what we need is a good defensive coach. Whoever is responsible for our defensive organisation needs to step their game up. 2nd half the whole team were bad. Couldn't defend, couldn't create, didn't look like scoring and didn't put pressure on our opponents. Edwards for me looks a player.....but fell asleep like the rest of the team in the 2nd half. Team needs time to gel and play to our strengths and be able to sustain it for 90 minutes, not one half wonders. Paul Cook you have a lot of work to do, things need to start to improve and come together. I'm sure they will, you can't just buy a successful team or squad.

Fans' Forum Streamed Live This Evening
at 19:40:00

Excellent evening of questioning and answering from both sides. 3 gents on top table came across as positive, full of passion for the club and their beliefs of where we are going, going forwards. I thank them all for arranging the evening and would have loved to attended if invited. Thanks for providing the live stream and I for one can't wait to take my season ticket seat for the 1st game of the league season.

Colchester United 3-3 Ipswich Town - Match Report
at 22:03:42

Hell of a game to watch on live stream, when they got technical problems sorted!! Game played like a semi final. Very competitive, with both teams competing hard for a result. Old Ipswich boys wanting to prove a point. I have to say Colchester looked the more organised, Ipswich played well in patches but still looked disjointed at times with so many changes to personnel. Holy in goal once again didn't do himself justice and on that showing can't expect to be Town no. 1. At times he looked like a Clown not coming for crosses what he really should and rushing out of his goal when not necessary. We conceded a goal from one of these. Woolfy for me not good enough. To laid back and not showing enough urgency to win balls and defend. Dobra by far the best player on the pitch for the full 90 minutes. Only a friendly and result not important, but in this game it so was........so much at stake for both sets of players and management. Gone are the days of lucklustre displays from a Town team. Plenty of energy and skill on show but it will take time for the new squad to settle into a rythm and get to know each other. The future looks bright!

Edmundson Bid Accepted
at 17:38:02

I know nothing about him, the same as most people on here. I admit I was looking at the club signing an experienced centre back who could captain the side going forward. I'm not impressed by Woolfy and Nsiala if I'm honest, both have lapses in games, make mistakes and give goals away. Hopefully with the right coaching Edmundson will turn out to be a shrewd signing, no doubt the new setup have done their homework and we have to place our trust in them.

Town Confirm Fraser Signing
at 20:14:50

Also just watched youtube highlights of him. Just in brief clips he looks very forward and positive thinking with a lovely eye for passes to forwards making runs. In one of the clips he out muscles Dozzell with ease. Looks a good signing at a good age. I'm very excited at what we are building.

Rotherham Receive Championship Bid For Crooks
at 12:05:36

All I can say is remember Marcus Stewart? Huddesfield didn't want to sell him to us and were desperate to hang onto him. The rest is history. I find it refreshing to see us going after players that clubs are not wanting to sell and other clubs also wanting them. Beats shopping in bargain basement for cast offs and injured players or players coming back from injury who are not fit. I support the club and what it is trying to do, it was so necessary and is proved by the fees got for players leaving and/or where they have ended up. Excited for the coming season and seeing total commitment all over the pitch. COYB'S.

Hawkins: I Just Want to Get Out There and Play Football
at 11:13:25

Another player I felt sorry for. Never got a chance to play in a team set up to play to his strengths. I wish him luck in a team that plays to his strengths. Hawkins is good in the air, wins balls and sets up others. If no quality balls are played into him and they weren't, what the hell is he or any striker supposed to do. If he did get a game he was left isolated as were any strikers played up top in our team last season. It was a team coached and managed appallingly. Hopefully now new beginnings and players who weren't good enough or not up for the fight to claim a 1st team place have either gone or will go before the new season starts.

Edwards Linked With Wigan Move
at 13:07:24

For me he couldn't cross, couldn't take freekicks and couldn't get corners over the 1st man. No doubting he has the skill but his attitude for hard work was missing, like many others at the club last season, wasn't up to the challenge. I hope he finds another club where he doesn't have to work too hard. Lets hope Paul Cook will replace him with a skillfull, hard working committed player who can do all that is asked consistently.

Speculation on Town's Available Players Gets Under Way
at 10:40:56

Over the last few seasons I have been as unimpressed as Cook. Not worried by any of this. I want a strong squad assembled that have skill, commitment, and a great desire to win. None of them have shown nowhere near enough of any of those attributes for me to be sad if they move on.
