Burns: We Can Still Win the League

Spiritofjohn,

It's mathematically possible.

Probably the sentence I have used more than any other in my 40 years as a town fan πŸ˜‚

Ipswich Town 2-5 Bolton Wanderers - Match Report
at 08:30:50

No other team in division pub ( consisting largely of teams that were non league not so long ago ) has conceded more goals than Ipswich ( who beat Inter Milan 20 years ago in the U.E.F.A cup ) that is a measure of how catastrophically low Ipswich have fallen.

I have given up saying,
" At least it can't get any worse"
Only to be proved wrong time and time again.

Personally, I was totally underwhelmed with the appointment of Cook.

I'm not sure if he was genuinely the man the new owners wanted but one thing I do know, is despite all this talk of this project taking time, the new owners will not tolerate these performances.

In conclusion, things really can't get any worse.

And if they do, could the owners please put me out of my misery and build a k-Mart on Portman road to put an end to the relentless suffering and empty hope and release me from this abusive relationship with Ipswich town and free me to support someone else?

Having said that, my 2nd team is Cowdenbeath.

I just love a bad boy!

I quite fancy a watch of the under 23's.

Ipswich is a Phaorah way from Egypt.

Ipswich Town 2-2 MK Dons - Match Report
at 10:11:26

Now I am usually very negative when it comes to all matters Ipswich town.

Twenty years of slow but sure decline have made me and many others this way.

Let's face it, these results so far have been nothing short of an embarrassment for a club of town's stature.

I've lost count of the times I've said " At least it can't get any worse " only to be proved wrong time and time again.

But my assessments so far are as follows,

Forget Cook's record last season, all this 4 wins in 21 rubbish. We were never going to gain promotion with last season's squad. I'd been saying for the last 3 seasons,
"We might have a big squad but none of them are any good, we can only swap poor players for poor"

Cook saw this and thankfully got rid.

We now have a complete new team made up of much more talented footballers.

But complete strangers to each other.

Of course these will take time to know each other's style of play, movements, positions.

I do believe that this new team will come together and let's remember, in this poor league, a team can fly up or down the league in the blink of an eye.

I firmly believe that in a few weeks time this team will click and we'll climb the table and be challenging the promotion places come December.

I am however, quite prepared to look back at this post and tell myself,

"They nearly fooled you again didn't they?"

If nothing else, being a supporter of Ipswich town does toughen you up for the disappointment that life will often send your way.

While I agree that this new squad will take time to form some kind of cohesion, I do understand fans frustration after the last two decades.

Because to be fair, I can't recall a worse set of results against such lowly opposition.

Whatever your personal opinion of the importance of tonight's result, the reality is that the investors will not tolerate failure.

Don't be fooled by their friendly, cheery disposition.

They want results and will get them by any ruthless means necessary.

I must admit to being particularly underwhelmed by the appointment of Paul Cook but as an Ipswich fan, I obviously want him to succeed.

Too early to judge the team thus far but whichever way you look at it, this was an embarrassing result.

Ipswich Town 2-2 Morecambe - Match Report
at 08:54:04

Some ridiculously, childish ( even bullying ) posts aimed at Eddie1985 on this forum.

Just because he wasn't overjoyed by drawing with Morecambe, doesn't mean a fellow town fan should be subjected to the responses he has received.

If it helps Eddie, these will be the same fans condemning the abuse the 3 England players received online and will be the same fans calling for a new manager if we aren't top six by Christmas.

Do keep posting Eddie, football is a matter of opinions and yours, as a town fan, is as valued as anyone else's on this site.
