|The Penalty Vs AS|
at 12:28 3 Mar 2021
I've watched it a few time this morning and I'm surprised they feel hard done by.
- We were one-on-one with the keeper.
- Their player slid in recklessly
- They made no contact with the ball ( the reason it goes off to the side is because our player hits it with his hand as he goes to ground)
- He was the last defender
I get that in the moment you could see it as their player hitting the ball and making a good challenge. But they said they watched it on a monitor, and he clearly didn't hit the ball.

Because it has been said many times by people in the know. It seems to be from when there was a change in formation to 2 up top.

Okay, so you want me to say my point, but cover my back
Cook is a high quality manager, it will be the new owners fault if he fails.
Marcus Evans demonstrated an excellent transformative ability to take Ipswich from a promotion-challenging championship team, to a middle of the road League One side. The new owners would have to be Paul Hurst levels of incompetence to not improve upon our situation.
As the past two games have demonstrated, the new manager and new owner have a team at their disposal that have been worse than the sum of its parts for the past couple of seasons.
It will be tough, but Paul Cook has the ability to make the play-offs. It just depends how ingrained our bad habits are.

According to my imagined fake John McGreal account, yes. :/

If I had the time I'd set up an account pretending to be McGreal, complaining about a fan stalking me on my way to Sports Direct.

Funny how this has turned out to be true. I didn't say the rumours were a load of ********, but I was certainly thinking it.
Well done to those who stuck their neck out. Even if it falls through, you were still correct.

If he writes off the debt, then he has actually invested money as he promised. It is clear that he isn't very good at running a football club and has only taken us backwards in our time here.
The platform he gives us would be a salary-capped league one side with new, unproven investors. Let's hope he is better at doing due diligence on take-overs, than he is of managers.

I'm not going to comment about the main part (his experience) because I don't know. But I think the recommendation of enforced 1-2 year programs would be a positive step.

Brings back memories of when a friend of mine died whilst at college. Including him, three died from his history class that year, all unrelated. I remember speaking to my history teacher about it. He didn't know we were friends until the funeral. We both had him as our teacher and he was pretty cut up about it.
|The constant referring to 'games in hand'|

I don't understand how you have calculated that. 3 points for every game in hand for every team?
This is what the points per game indicate. Consider our ppg is 1.52, but over the last 10 games we have a 0.9 ppg, which would change the below figure to 43.74, making us 7.26 pts off 6th with a worse goal difference.
1. Lincoln City 60
2. Peterborough United 58.8
3. Doncaster Rovers 54.3
4. Hull City 53.1
5. Portsmouth 51.3
6. Accrington Stanley 51
7. Sunderland 50.4
8. Oxford United 48.9
9. Blackpool 46.2
10. Ipswich Town 45.6
11. Charlton Athletic 45.6

|How can we get at the owner?|
at 13:20 21 Feb 2021
Correct me if I'm wrong, but Ipswich is in debt to Marcus Evans, so it is more like a loan of money. He expects the next owner to take-on or pay-off that debt. I see no indication that he plans on writing that debt off.
I freely hold my hands up and say I don't really understand the situation. The fact that I don't understand it means I don't trust it. It doesn't feel like he is actually investing that money into the club.
