I went to watch Logan last night and was very impressed with it. It is nothing like any other Marvel/DC/Superhero film has been before. It's lot darker and much more violent than most other films in this genre but the performances from Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart were exceptional. It certainly much more akin to an old Western rather than the over the top CGI and stunts which plagues most superhero movies. Even if superhero movies aren't your thing, I highly recommend going to watch this.
Mick you have to go. Why the feck would you wait until 75mins to bring on the best player at the club then.proceed to stick him on the wing just to accommodate skugless. If you're going to take off the wingers the switch formations. Put freddy along side best with mcg in behind. Have a midfield 3 allowing johnny to get on the ball. Crosses were never going to work against that man mountains in defence. We have the players to be a really.good football but it's him who is holding us back. I will continue to back the players but not the manager anymore. F.O.M.M
Of 'don't argue with an idiot because they'll bring you down to their level then beat you with their experience' Is the perfect way to describe how ipswich are set up to play because not one team we have faced has looked that much better than us.
Edit- just realised the analogy would work better if we were winning but I think the basic point is correct
It was a good point at the end of the day. We could have nicked it at the end. Just a few things we need to address if we want to finish in the play offs. If we are going to continue with skuse and douglas, who were both solid 7/10 today, we need the full backs to push forward. Knudsen is capable of this, however, Chambers isn't.(I'm not going to turn this into a chambers thread as there is plenty already) Freddy just needs 1 to get 10. He was desperately unlucky to not score today. Mick is right to keep playing him because of the milage he puts in each game. Having someone who can sprint box to box 10 times each gane is a huge asset. Best and Reg could really be our joker this season. For the former j wouldnt be suprised to see him replace Pitman as the starting striker. Webster is class. He will f*ck up this season but we have a serious player on our books.
One final word. I've now gotten used to micks style of play of making it hard for the oppo and try and nick one on the break but please try and be more adventurous. When fit the creativity in our side is really quite impressive. Didzy johnny Lawrence bish ward grant and even bru and Webster we are really capable of playing a much more attractive style of football
Got a text from a mate who went to the Woking match. The two goals he conceeded were the fault of the defence as much as his. He could have done better for both of them but did make a top class save in the second half to help Woking to a 3-2 win. He also said he looked a bit nervous to start off with bit grew into the game as the match progressed
Coming away front the game today definitely feels like two points were dropped today. Stuart Pearce and his merry men seemed to take a leaf out of the supposed Mick style of football- boot the ball long into the channels between the cb and fullbacks. You can really see why they struggled to score in the last two games. No doubt they will be in and around the play offs but very unlikely to be promoted. On to the towen. First half we were very very good. Johnny was a real livewire pretty much picking up where he left off last season Berra is hands down the best cb in the league Mings is getting better with every game made some fantastic last ditch tackles Murphy. Oh Daryl. brilliant goals today constant threat in front of goal.
Now onto our goals conceded. Both set pieces. Both times gerken(who did make two unbelievable saves along with some goal line blocks from our defence) was completely in the wrong positions. For all the top quality shots he saves, he still is a liability from crosses.
Overall we deserved to win the match. We have started to play really good football but we need to cut out the silly mistakes at the back otherwise is may cost us an automatic/play off place
