Or is season tickets 3, and silver 4. Or is it something else?

We seem to get progressively worse under each new manager,
at 22:33 20 Apr 2021

until we get near the end of the season, and we hear "Just wait until next season!"

Then we have a little spark at the start of the new season before getting progressively worse again.

I think the confidence of this group of players is shot to pieces and they ALL have to move on for their own good as well as the good of the club.

I honestly thought some of these players especially Dozzell & Bishop were the real deal, but I think it's time they went out into the world and made a name for themselves elsewhere.

We need to rebuild a team with no connections to this one. Players that can play free of any association with the blame attached to this squad's performances.

Remember what Shane Supple said all those years ago....
at 10:21 16 Apr 2021

To have grown weary of football by the age of 22 is a sign of how much Supple was struggling with attitudes within professional football, as team-mates complained of their holidays being cut short by being in the play-offs and played for themselves rather than the team. It wasn’t just Ipswich that had problems but also Falkirk and Oldham, where Supple enjoyed loan spells.

“I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing around the first-team dressing room. I couldn’t believe the attitude towards the game; I was young and naive coming from Ireland, we’ve got gaelic football and hurling here, you play for your one club for your whole life and you do everything for the club.

“In football, a lot of the lads move around so much, they don’t really have an attachment to the club, so it was difficult for me to understand, and I started to get doubts around then, but I tried to put it out of my head as I enjoyed the playing the game. I was then starting to get games and I was taking it one at a time but things started to develop from there, the manager left, new management came in and I wasn’t playing as much.

“I was loaned out and I was still seeing the same things, I just couldn’t get my head around it, about how much people look after themselves. They didn’t care about their team-mates or even staff, they were just watching their own back, which wouldn’t be my way of doing things.”

Supple had made his first-team debut aged just 18 and kept the No.1 shirt for half the season, an impressive feat for a teenager in the Championship. But even at that age he didn’t feel like his dreams had come true.

“A lot of it would be the coaching staff saying one thing to your face and another behind your back, so it was hard to trust anyone, players as well. There were a lot of lads looking after themselves making sure they got the next contract, not working together as a team a lot of the time.

“There was a lot of individualism in the game and it was hard to create that team spirit, something I had in the different teams I played in when I was growing up. You need that camaraderie to be successful. You need to fight for each other and I couldn’t see that in England and I didn’t want to be part of it going forward.”

One thing Ive noticed about this forum,
at 12:38 12 Apr 2021

is that people keep posting generalisations about what "the forum" thinks, as if they are above it all.

I realised a question (indoor venues) was taking me into a minefield and that I should have just said "no" so I tried to retrace my steps - but it crashed!
Cool story huh?

Leicester are everyone's favourite PL team aren't they?
at 15:11 14 Mar 2021

Helps you understand why Ipswich were everybody's favourite team back in the day.
Nice football, successful, but not one of the usual suspects from Manchester, Liverpool or London.
