Ipswich Town 1-2 West Ham U21s - Highlights
at 22:35:37

ChrisR - We have one of England's best ever cb's at the club who could be used to sort the defense out but PC and co are now looking to use him in some sort of part-time social role. I recall George Burley bringing Stewart Houston in (from Arsenal I think) when GB had similar defensive issues and Houston did a great job. We need a similar approach now to Terry Butcher but it might well be that PC is reluctant to ask for help, although if the present defensive shambles continues he may be compelled to make a move like this...... fingers crossed for Saturday

Ashton Writes to Fans at End of Town's Summer Recruitment Revolution
at 08:51:34

God, what a breath of fresh air Mark Ashton is after the succession of fumblers we have had to endure in his role. We are now landing players that Championship clubs were also interested in and now even persuading players to step down from the Championship to League 1.
Landing Morsy is another great coup. I am wondering if him and Tom Carroll will become the first choice central midfielders. At least we now have some depth of decent players there after years of light-weights. I cannot wait for our next run of matches.... coyb

Ipswich Town 2-2 AFC Wimbledon - Match Report
at 01:43:40

While the start has been disappointing, I do think that once we tidy up the defense we will get on a run and move up the table. Consistency of high performance is going to be a key requirement this season in a league where anyone can beat anyone else as shown by Morecombe and Oxford in this latest round. While I think that moving Wilson on was foolish (at this level) hopefully Edmundsen can make a difference... coyb

Cook: Ndaba Has Been Doing Really Well
at 01:44:34

Great to see him being persevered with. He is still young for a defender and being left-footed is very useful. In several years I can see him and Baggot being our cb pairing. I hope that the loan stint goes well for him. Onwards and upwards Corrie......

Cook: We Know We Have to Get Up to Speed, We Know We Have to Win Games
at 01:32:27

The stats from most of the earlier games have seen us win it everywhere except on the scoreboard, with us being undone by mistakes which can be eradicated. I am confident that we can get on a run shortly that will move us up the table. A stark contrast from last season is the number of chances we are now creating. Hold the faith..... coyb

Keane: I Got Recruitment Wrong at Town

I vividly recall being at Portman Road in late October 2009 for the first win of that season, a David Wright header, against Derby County securing a 1-0 result and being amazed when Wright was sold in the following January. What a shambles that era was.......

Cook: Soft Goals Are Hurting Us
at 00:49:42

The defense, and I include in that Evans and Harper, need some help. Posters might recall George Burley bringing in Houston (from Arsenal I think) to do some work with the defense he had in the late 1990's and it paid off handsomely. While Edmundsen might make a difference when he finally becomes available some expert tuition in the meantime could pay dividends.
Perhaps our Terry could be the man......? coyb

Cook: I’m Sure We Will See a Very, Very Entertaining Game of Football

This one would be a great one to win to get us up the table a bit.
Fraser's goal scoring ratio is very good so I hope that we see him in his preferred No 10 role, if not today, then very soon.... coyb

Well the charity shop was open for their two goals.
Hopefully the addition of Edmundsen and him forging a good understanding with his backline colleagues and the keeper will see a tighteni9ng up in the near future.

Bonne: Everything That I've Dreamt Of
at 04:01:56

Sounds genuinely enthusiastic and appreciative to play for us. I hope that it rubs off on others as well. Its a rather stark contrast to some other players we have had over the past few years who came up through our youth system who appeared to take things for granted. His setback at 14 appears to have galvanised him and I hope that he has a great season.

Cook: We'll Have to Be Adaptable and Patient

Kernewek - another great post nicely summing up the present situation.
I am looking forward to the season getting underway and also a few more new faces arriving before the end of this month. It is also worth bearing in mind that the owners will have some funds available in January if needed.
All in all this is the most promising situation the club has been in at the start of the season for a very long time.... coyb

Sounds like he appreciates the chance that he is being given. It is all in his hands as to how things go from here. If he does not shape up he will be out in January. If he does shape up then he can look forward to a great career with us. I hope that he rises to the challenge......

League One Preview 2020/21
at 06:17:04

Thanks for posting this round-up. Great to have the current state of play all in one place.
I am becoming increasingly confident about this season and more so as each new player is announced. If we land another 4 or 5 of the calibre of those already brought in we will have a team that would be competitive with those in the middle of the Championship. I am particularly interested in whether or not we can get Celina and also an established cb of the calibre of Mowbray/ De Vos/ McAually. Exciting times ahead at last.....

Would be surprised if we did offer 1M particularly as we seemed reluctant to go to that figure with Crooks.

Town Closing in on MK Dons Midfielder Fraser

The goal threat is very welcome especially when you consider the last few years. With Piggot, Bonne and Norwood up front and this guy in central midfield we are starting to develop a decent level of threat. A cb or two and a new winger, who pose a threat from set-pieces would complete the picture nicely .... coyb
