Ipswich Town 6-0 Doncaster Rovers - Match Report
at 22:22:27

Well if you give the team ten games to get sorted, that was a great way to find that they have (with the slight hesitation that Doncaster were genuinely awful even before we started scoring). Still, you can only beat what's in front of you.

Somehow a 1-0 seems a better win - in the light of recent weeks - than 4-3. Or is that just me?

Burns: Supporters Need to Stick With Us

London_Blue 'Paul Cook is more qualified that literally every person commenting on this forum'
Some things are opinions and debatable but that comment is categorically wrong. Which isn't to say that those are the negative people - you are just assuming the forum is made up of people like you, a common error. In general, players and staff often use fan forums by proxy too.

This is like the Liberal Democrat conference assuring us that they can win the next election. Which of course they could by winning the majority of seats.

Ashton: Long and Challenging Window But We’ve Come Through It in Decent Shape
at 09:37:47

The Club looks a lot more joined up than for many years. Nevertheless, we all know that a well-run, joined up, ambitious club and being in the League 1 relegation zone are not compatible. So here's hoping the results improve in September and we end the season in or near the play-offs.

Wycombe Match Postponed

An excellent opportunity to make about eight (or eighteen?) new signings! Then they'll need a little time - say 'til the New Year - to gel . . .

As most of us have agreed, he has ten games (this season). We are 60 per cent through them. Cook has very little time, and no excuses. His choice of new players, a very kind fixture list, a supportive crowd. At the end of September we'll let him know what we think.

Evans: We’ll Get Better and Better as the Season Goes On
at 17:14:36

It's easy to explain the negativity - and it is in fact quite positive. Norwich are the marker; historically we have been generally a little ahead of them except for rare seasons. Now they are out of sight. In this context it is impossible to be positive about trying to turn defeats at Burton into draws, as Evans does here. I don't blame him, I don't yet blame Cook, but we don't get 20,000 in the ground because of the size of the town or our current manager and squad. We are there because we believe we are much more than we actually are. I agree this is increasingly delusional. But when the negativity goes away, it will be a sign that we have settled for being on a par with Col U, and there - with our history and an empty stadium - we will remain. The negativity is more positive than you think.

Clements: Everything But the Goal
at 22:02:57

“I’ve been playing with a lot of these boys for a long time now so it’s easier to understand each other’s game.” Quite.
While I understand that this Cup is a place for a B team, I thought that Cook had said he wished for another friendly or two to help his first team-from-scratch to gel. So why ever did he rest the whole of that team that needs to gel?

Ipswich Town 0-3 Millwall - Match Report
at 17:38:34

An amazingly forgiving set of comments given that this is the last pre-season friendly. Some of these observations (fitness, run out etc.) would be accurate for the opening friendlies, not the final one. Presumably we take the view that Morecambe's 1-1 draw with Championship Blackpool was because Blackpool were not really trying, like - er - Millwall . . .

St Johnstone Striker Aware of Interest
at 13:18:55

While I understand that this general system of flaying about for any half-decent footballer who has had a good season is the summer normal, I had hoped that Cook might have had more of a definite plan. Like having two or three intentional strong signings and using the Football Manager stick-pin-in-players-beginning-with-a-letter-of-the-alphabet system to add a little depth rather than form a team.

The preamble to the comments says: Please keep News Comments on topic. . . Do not post bad language or libellous content.

But I cannot see how it is possible to both stay on topic and NOT post bad language or libellous (sic) content.
