|1-4-2 record against top half sides under McKenna|
at 17:04 19 Mar 2022
Not good enough is it and certainly not going to cut it next season.
20 goals in 16 games... Not good enough. Its all well and good keeping clean sheets and controlling games, but we create very little clear cut chances or chances in general.
For all the love in everyone's giving McKenna, massive improvements needed next season or we will fall short again.

Wasn't Scott Barron meant to be returning?
We need to get something in place if we're to be successful. Can't have MA cherry picking old players and hoping things work out. Needs to be a wider and more properly thought out process if we're to be a success.
|Was just like watching us under Lambert... |

The games against Bolton and Wimbledon followed a similar pattern. Teams allowing us to play tippy tappy round the defence whilst exploiting the channels.
Offered no threat what so ever. Not having a shot on target is pretty unacceptable.
Bakinsons was woeful. Very lazy and offered us nothing on or off the ball. Strange sub bringing off el Mizouni and leaving him on when the later had started to find his groove. Another signing by Ashton that's not paying off and looks utterly bizzare when we've already got others in that position that are just as capable.
Season pretty much over unfortunately, need to build for next season
|Ashton just as culpable for this mess... |

And shouldn't get away with deflecting blame by talking rubbish.
He allowed Cook to bring in his own players and a completely new squad and to sack him 4 months later is completely unacceptable. We now find ourselves with a core of players that signed to play for Cook on big wages and long term deals who quite frankly didn't look at all interested tonight. God knows if they'll fit into the new managers system as well.
Not to mention, the players that clearly he and Mike O'Leary have signed, poor. Edwards is awful, headless chicken, Harper no where to be seen & Barry? Any others I've mentioned?
The seasons already over and it's only the start of December. What an absolute mess.
|Cooks recent record.. |
at 23:06 2 Nov 2021
4th in form table... P 6, 4-1-1
2 defeats in 11
4 points off the play-offs
Just battered the side with 8 straight wins at home in the league having deserved at least a point away from home against Plymouth on Saturday.
Playing some of the best football we've seen from an Ipswich side since the Burley days.
Clear on the field progress.
Maybe, just maybe, Cook knows what he's doing?

I know there's always alot of hysteria after each defeat, but we played pretty well Saturday and shouldn't have lost that game.
Progress is being made, that much is clear. Cook got his tactics spot on, just a poor mistake from Penney and missed chances costing us.
Need a win tomorrow!
|Downes and Dozzell... |
at 13:43 19 Sep 2021
Not had the best starts at their clubs.
Always liked Downes energy and think if we could've kept him this season then I would've done. But he's been hooked off at HT yesterday when 3-0 down.
Dozzell still can't even get on the pitch for QPR. A few nice passes here and there just aren't going to cut it, especially at the level above. Needs to improve his all round game massivley or else he will be dropping down the leagues. Warburton must be struggling to get something out of him as well?
Does just go to show that the arguement that because players are moving up a division they must be good is a load of rubbish. We'll see come the end of the season just how good they are but looking like good business to get 2.5m for the pair.
|Third lowest XG on goals against in the three games.. |
at 12:17 19 Aug 2021
2.73 as opposed to the 6 we've conceded. Would be higher still due to the pen. Suggests we've been a tad unfortunate.
Is the defence really the issue?
Suggests to me that given time, we can expect to see things improve?
|Problem you've got here.... |
at 22:07 17 Aug 2021
Is you quite clearly can't sack the manager having let him amass his squad over the summer to play his brand of football after 3 games.
Certainly positives tonight. Controlled the game for 60 minutes before completely falling off of a cliff. God alone knows why we can't seem to defend long throws and where these injured players are currently.
Saturday is massive. We've got to get a win to get things moving.
at 13:44 9 Aug 2021
Surely the Edwards signing means we've pulled the plug on Jacobs?
|Phil, what happened with the Gibson deal? |
at 08:46 15 Jul 2021
Is this similar to the Harper one? Everton new manager and its held up because of that? Although I guess its completely different in that he's well off the first team picture there
