Hull at home on 3rd of March
at 15:33 23 Feb 2018

I think this has to be the time that the fans actually do something and show ME how we're feeling. I propose a rousing chant of "Mick McCarthy, we want you to stay" at the start and the end of the game.

Could Mick be staying?
at 16:50 26 Jan 2018

I'm probably reading too much into it but Bart signing a new deal, other players being let go, a few lads in on trial who look ones for the future - all points at a manager who might stick around maybe? Can't help but think that the quip about walking off at the end of the season might have been a deliberate red herring.

Currently dismantling Chung. Hard to see him not picking up a 21st major here as he has a great record against Cilic, and I wouldn't bet against him winning Wimbledon again this year. Absolutely phenomenal sportsman.

Back in training and hopefully playing in the under 23s next week. Good news, he could still have a big part to play over the rest of the season if we can keep him fit. I liked the little I saw of him, proper box to box midfielder.

Current bottom 3 in the Prem
at 16:28 14 Jan 2018

Swansea, Stoke and West Brom. Is it just me that would really like to see the bottom 3 stay that way until the end of the season? No disrespect but they're all just very meh and have no real ambition beyond trying to survive in the Prem year on year. They've been in that league for a while doing nothing interesting at all and it just feels like their time to go. Be nice to see all three promoted sides staying up too.

I'd be happy with that as a short term signing. Prem experience, good on the ball and has a bit of physical presence about him. Could be a good addition if the story is true.

£750k for Moore
at 10:00 5 Jan 2018

I'm assuming we'll have included a sell on in there and possibly some other add ons as we tend to with these deals. If so that looks a reasonable deal considering how little we paid for him and that he really didn't look a Championship player last year (whilst appreciating they weren't the best circumstances for him to perform in). I'm not sure he'd have played much here, we're playing one out and out striker and he's not as good as Garner or Waghorn in that role imo. It's a good move for him, sounds like he'll get a decent wage and a chance to prove himself at this level as you've got to think Barnsley have signed him to play.

Not too far away by the sounds of it. Much as he has his limitations I actually think him alongside Skuse or Connolly in the holding roles could work. He gives us energy and whilst he's no Pirlo he keeps it simple and gets play ticking over.

Got to bring someone in now you'd think. Huws, Bish and Doz all out for the season, Adeyemi missing, Nydam and Downes not able to be relied upon for a run of games. We need another option to see out the season.

Best line up going forward
at 08:56 27 Dec 2017

I think we need to stick with the 4-2-3-1 system we've been using for the past couple of months, yes we've still had a few flat performances but for the most part we've looked a much better side since changing to that system and sticking with it. Connolly and Skuse have been excellent in the holding roles so let's hope Skuse is back for Derby. We know our best back 4 now, injuries and rotation aside. For me the problem is how to get the right balance in the attacking four. Specifically, is it possible for us to get Didz, Garner and Waghorn into the same team at the same time?

We saw yesterday, and earlier in the season, that the balance looks off when all three play as one of them has to nominally play on the right-hand side and that has left us exposed defensively and a little lopsided going forward. We also tend to go long with more forwards on the pitch as we've got less players in the side capable of linking defence and attack. For me we've looked more balanced when sacrificing a forward for a midfielder whilst keeping the same shape, it's meant we've looked more solid and we've had a bit more structure and shape to our play.

The question then becomes who do you leave out? Didz is technically our best player and can produce moments of magic that nobody else in our side can. Waghorn is our top scorer and has been superb overall. Garner started the season brilliantly and when he's on top of his game he gives us so much but when he's not on it and can't get on top of the centre backs he doesn't pose a threat. He's had more anonymous performances lately than good ones so reluctantly he'd be the one to miss out for me. Waghorn showed he can play up top in this system when Garner was out injured and that would mean Didz can move to the number 10 role, Ward on the right and Celina on the left. Garner coming on against tired defenders might be just what he needs too to get back into top form.

For me that attacking line up gives us much better balance and also enables us to drop Ward back into midfield and go for more of a 4-3-3 or drop Ward and Celina back a touch and go 4-4-2 if the system isn't working. Having four forwards on from the start really limits our ability to change anything.

Sounds like a right sore loser. They lost because they gave away poor goals, it was the ref's fault, they had loads of chances and we only had two attacks. What a plonker.

I love Ipswich
at 17:32 16 Dec 2017

There, I said it. After a poor season last season and a frustrating one the season before that, Mick has got us ticking again. Today was everything good about us under Mick, really organised and disciplined but able to attack with pace when we could and always capable of opening the opposition up. Celina today was immense, a threat going forward but worked so hard too, he's come on leaps and bounds lately. We look a proper side again, great spirit and some genuine ability going forward too. I know it's not fashionable to be positive about Town these days but I don't really care - COME ON YOU BLUES!!!!

Is he still at City in some capacity? I'm sure I saw him (or someone who looked very like him) on their bench encouraging Pep to go and celebrate after the derby win.
