|Ashton is going to be humiliated on Saturday |
at 06:26 16 Dec 2021
Isn’t he! You just know it.
Sacked a manager (not the wrong decision in itself) and had no idea who to replace him with, even Evans who is a complete numbskull had a manager ready and waiting when he eventually pulled the trigger. We have essentially written these games off and as a result our season is now officially over on the 16th December.
In my view it will be announced today that some or all of the Americans are now unable to make Saturday (due to covid will be the reason given)

Is it just me or is the coaching team more important than the manager himself. I would love the idea of Lampard mainly because he would hopefully bring Morris etc with him and we would have a proper coaching set up. I think this Cook situation has taught us is don’t underestimate the importance of the coaching set up around the manager. If a manager has a proven track record with a certain assistant and coaches than bring them altogether or not at all!!!

There trip will be coincidentally “put off”. No way will they want to come with the way things are on the terraces.

The minute he assembled a coaching team not fit for purpose.
Lack of No.2 of any sorts
Lack of any experienced first team coach
The GK Coach has a managed to turn supposedly the best gk outside the championship into one that resembles a non league Sunday morning goalie with a hangover.
Failure to nurture and improve the raw ability of Edwards and Harper who I believe will be the two main players that we see a drastic improvement from following Cooks sacking.
These are all things that Cook had control over and failed to identify instead keeping his “pals” in a job even though it was clear from day one what we lacked off the field.
Even when asked in that fans forum if he had a defensive coach and he laughed and said “obviously not” I know he was joking but it was a serious question by a fan and clearly one of concern and all he could muster was Jeffers does the defensive set pieces…
This was the right decision for the club if we want to move forwards!!

then Cook will be gone very soon. If they aren’t bothered which some seem to suggest whether it’s this season or next he will always do just enough to stay in the job. Before anybody says it’s not just a defeat to a top 6 side. Our home is poor and shows no signs of getting better any time soon then we must take points away from home.

Whenever he goes whether it’s today next week or next month, no doubt a load of players will come and say he wasn’t to blame but the players etc etc yawn yawn just recycled nonsense. If they cared about him staying in a job we wouldn’t be losing to Accrington in the manner we did with arguably a first choice side. I am sick of seemingly decent players arriving and the non existent coaching that’s seemingly been in place for years and still is unable to “coach” players!! It’s a basic fundamental of any football club surely!!

I’m selling an unused 2 year old Carrera Crossfire that was purchased new for around £1200/£1300. What sort of depreciation do they have and where is the best place to sell one? My friend is moving away and left me to sell on their behalf.

Set up a “Phoenix club” say for example “AFC Ipswich which obviously started at the lowest level, if it started to rise through the divisions could you ever imagine following them?
If Ipswich Town continue the way they are then I think I for one could easily be convinced without me thinking like I am cheating on my club!!!
|This news we can all be excited about?|

Must be DOF related surely?
We have seen what a decent DOF can do 40 miles down the road. Money or not Webber has arguably been there best signing of the lot in the last 4/5 years.
Knowing our luck we will end up with a stooge and be no better off but we can but hope.
|Disgraceful from the worse bunch of players|
at 15:02 20 Mar 2021
Ever to wear the town shirt. The lot of them can sod off for all i are, not a single one I would want to keep, bunch of bottlers.
As for the manager, you’ve just seen the impact a new manager can have in one poxy half time team talk so for everybody saying Cook can’t do anything and it’s too soon to get a reaction, well you’ve seen what most teams get with a new manager. Except us off course!!
|In a way that was the perfect result in every way|
at 21:28 2 Mar 2021
We won first and foremost however the weaknesses are very obvious in which Paul Cook needs to address and quickly. The subs offered nothing and Bennetts was appalling however the one ray of light was those two Center halves absolute brilliant performances. Bishop and dozzell struggled to impose themselves like they have in recent games and I suspect Downes will be back in on Saturday but who knows. PC will be left in no doubt what needs to happen in order to improve us. I can’t friggin wait!!!
|Evans preoccupied managing |
at 06:11 17 Feb 2021
His other business interests!! Yes he would have kept one eye on the club but LON pretty much said his not working from his Portman Road office (overlooking the training pitch) and is occupied with his other businesses strongly at the moment. They are worth far more to him that ITFC realistically ever will be. Also a few thousand disgruntled fans is hardly enough for him to think any different. Lambert won’t be gone before Saturday and has basically been left to manage despite the untenable position that even he seemingly accepts, Evans had waining interest before COVID and now pretty much zero interest. Lambert has got to go but with this clown at the top Lamberts “torment” will be over but ours will continue.
|Imagine a new manager comes in and takes his first|
at 22:38 16 Feb 2021
training session. Where on earth does he even begin!!! How will he be able to closely look at the 30/40 odd players there is to choose from to know who he wants to start with!!
|How low are the standards being set by Lambert and Co!!|
at 06:13 10 Feb 2021
These supposed award winning performances they all talk of to most of us are pure garbage?? Therefore there is going to be no improvement whatsoever is there because within the club the players are being told they are brilliant and we can’t ask anymore from them so they are not going to give more. Saturday was a fluke because of the number of new players who will now follow suit with the others and be poorly coached and there performances will drop off to a standard that is accepted by everybody within the club.
When Lambert goes I want all this happy to be yes men gone with him (Taylor, Gill, Pullen) everybody who has come out and defended these performances have to go and we need to raise the bar and bring in somebody who isn’t going to accept abject failure and out the bar high enough for players to either have to improve or go simple
|Evans you are a joke of an owner!!!|
at 05:48 10 Feb 2021
You bought this club to make a quick buck and it backfired massively now do the honourable thing and hand the reigns over to somebody else, your supposed value of what the club is worth is laughable. We are worthless with a management and coaching team devoid of any ideas and have mismanaged players who have only decreased in value since their arrival. Downes and Wolf aren’t worth half of what they were at one stage as promising youngsters when they first broke on the scene. When will you be happy? When we are in league 2? The conference? At what point will you be a man and admit you are not in the best interests of this football club and you aren’t wanted anymore.
|Nobody asked for Lambert to be |

Given that 5 year contract just you and your sheer stupidity and naivety (10 years and still making schoolboy mistakes)
Yet it is the fans and only the fans that being punished as a result!! You haven’t acted when under normal circumstances every football club in the country would have by now, lambert ain’t walking away and the players and cushty earning money for doing nothing and not having to work to a standard.
My family ask why doesn’t my 10 year old son support Ipswich, why the hell should i make him!! What’s he got to look forward to as a town fan!!! Nothing whilst you are here ME, lower your expectations of what the club is worth and sell up!!!
