When was the last time we ended the season on a positive note?
at 10:41 7 Mar 2022

I've been thinking about this quite a bit over the weekend and on the drive back from Blackpool.

Saturday was another performance where I came away from the ground and thought this is again a team with a clear plan, a way of playing and a genuine progression from week to week with new ideas. We played some wonderful football at times on what was effectively a park pitch - one-touch football, trust in possession in all areas of the field, runners getting in behind. This is a reflection of a management team with an ethos and quality in terms of both being able to communicate that in such a way that the players can enact it, and in the players themselves in being able to carry it out.

It probably is the case that we don't get promoted this season, but it would be a big step change for us as a club to go into a summer without needing to make wholesale changes to the management team, playing squad or style of play. I'm still genuinely struggling to think of the last time that was the case - even at the end of the play-off season with Mick we kind of limped over the line and went into the post-season with hopes of building a more fluid side in attack.

The worry is around there will be some churn as an inevitability - can we keep Celina? Do we need to sell Edmundson or Woolfenden to finance this model? I hope that the upward turn at the end of the season makes the answers to these (and any other questions) a little easier to answer.

I thought we were brilliant in the first half last night
at 08:51 23 Feb 2022

Properly good - playing football in an exciting and free-flowing style, lots of one touch passing, beating players and creating good chances as well as pressing in a way that didn’t give Cheltenham a second to breath.

Second half was obviously frustrating, we ran out of steam (and I thought we lost the plot a bit last 20 with the change of shape) but if that first half is a window of what’s to come then we have cause to be very excited about this Ipswich team going forward.

Quite incredible that
at 21:59 2 Nov 2021

Considering how dreadful we were in the first 20.

Walton, Morsy and KVY my highlights - I wonder if we might see Donacien move to the left because that’s becoming a problem position (although Burgess was a good man to come in when he did tonight).

Brilliant statement win - let’s bloody hope we can build on this one.

Just because a few people seem quite over excited about tonight
at 19:35 14 Sep 2021

This competition is a joke and shouldn’t be entertained as anything other than that.

Ipswich against a West Ham B side is not something that should ever be happening, let alone analysed within an inch of its life.

Would be a genuine shame if we can’t find minutes for Dobra and El Mizouni this season.

You'd have thought he'd be looking to make moves to curry a bit of favour rather than souring relations further.

Travel agent advice
at 12:24 4 May 2020

Sorry for another travel thread.

I was supposed to be flying to the USA next week for a multi-city trip. Due to the amount of flights required it was much cheaper to book through a travel agent (Kiwi.com) rather than with the airlines direct as I normally with.

Obviously my plans are now cancelled, and so are my UK return flights (London to JFK and Miami to London), however my domestic US flights are not cancelled (NYC to Vegas, Vegas to Miami).

In terms of options available to me, Kiwi offer an instant refund (of around 5% of the overall spend lol), or the option to leave them to it for 3 months and see what they come back with. I think if I accept either of those options I lose all of my rights.

The dilemma is made trickier still because my UK leg flights are with Norwegian Airlines (who may go to the wall this week). For reference, my US flights are with Frontier.

Has anybody been in a similar situation to this? I am not insured for this trip (I have an annual travel insurance thing which is just Europe only and was going to get US cover about now) and I booked it using a debit card, so I'm not sure I'm particularly well covered.

Any advice appreciated.

Have to have a kind of grudging respect for the government/medical officers
at 19:54 12 Mar 2020

They’ve backed their models, forecasts and plans, and if you don’t follow all the contingencies put in place then why bother making them in the first place?

On the other hand though, it does feel a bit uncomfortable to be the only country in the world who is following this sort of advice and it’s not fun to be part of a real-world run through of a simulation.

Baffling to me that large (specifically sporting) gatherings are planned to go ahead this weekend.
