Town Appoint Director of Football Operations

We have to be pleased this is happening, but can't help wonder what was possible with the generation of undoubtedly talented youth we have recently discarded with the right structure. Better late than never!

Reid Could Reprise Wigan Role at Town
at 14:52:30

I get that PC knows him, but why Peter Reid but not Butch (recently discarded)....or Mr Burley who is local and would am sure be delighted to assist in this way. Though am George could be seen as a threat to PC if things start to slide again.

Approve of the idea, just not being a home for any available friend of PCs; if anything we should be interviewing for such a role to see who is actually out there and can add value which am surprised Mr Ashton is not doing given how professionally he is addressing everything else.

Accrington Chairman Shares Messages Exchanged With Burgess Ahead of Town Move
at 18:53:15

Why pass judgement, this is an honest man sharing his thoughts.

The thing I take away from this, is how bad must agents/clubs be to deal with generally for this to warrant going public! Either way, kudos to Mr Ashton and this bodes will for our near future and the signings we will need to make to reach the next level.

Even in U23s our group of high claibre individuals loses to a good team. That lesson must be learned quickly thruogh the Club and have to hope we see signs of the Team contiunuing to come together again tonight. We cannot afford anymore backward steps.

Morsy Set For League Debut and Edwards Expected to Be Available as Blues Host Bottom Club Doncaster
at 13:25:00

Edwards and Burns on the wings, Fraser at 10.....Celina on Bench.....just for this game. Celina can replace any who do not perform = competition for places !

Morsey presumably comes in but for who ? Presumably El Mizuni, but what does that say to the squad, as thought he was outstsanding on Saturday. Can't keep looking ahead, as has been said, we MUST start winning now.

Morsy Receives Egypt Call
at 09:56:06

Given we are as far into the season as we are, am sure our manager has a plan when Morsy has and is not available; he was not even stuck on to join us until the last minute.

With or without, we should be beating those teams. COYB

Burns: Supporters Need to Stick With Us
at 15:20:44

The support has been amazing this season. PC has mismanaged that to the point of some booing. I don't and wouldn't, but the level of tactical failure has been breathtaking so far.....even after seeing our recent other managers.

PC can't be this bad, the players can't be this bad, but if this carries on then we all will have to consider otherwise whatever public statements they come out with.

Ipswich Town 1-2 West Ham U21s - Match Report
at 22:03:33

Manager was in self preservation mode on Saturday. How is he going to unwind his pre match drivel this time. Either the players are not being coached or they cannot/will not take instruction from PC. Either way it's a disaster. We need to stop allowing him to play the need more time routine, it does not wash anymore.

Immediate results from Sat or jog on. Burley and butcher will sort this in no time and create a succession plan with Dyer.....why not@

Dobra's Colchester Loan Move Confirmed
at 18:46:26

In theory this is a great move for Dobs, but why Col U and their rather large group of our 'losers' as PC would have us believe. Following that logic, surely better for him to have gone somewhere completely fresh and learnt something different to bring back to Portman Road....including a winning mentality too even ?!

Celina: Fans One of the Biggest Reasons For Return
at 17:11:49

Are you kidding Fat_Boy_Tim.....my lad has been singing it since yesterday.

Big thanks to our new owners and Exec group for their work, commitment and investment to get us to this point. We have definitively won the Transfer Window, maybe still time to win the League! One thing is for sure, there can be NO excuses now.

Cook: Recruitment Has Been of a Very High Standard
at 16:49:53

Sorry itfcserbia, you may have some sort of point, but the guy is rooted to his line, is not vocal enough himself and his body language is really poor and was from minute 1 on Sat....his first action was a mis-kick as if to confirm that !

We sit close to the goal so we are neither blind or deaf and he looks like an accident waiting to happen, we all were saying it in the seats around us on Saturday, we got nervous every time he went near the ball, and sure enough he drops the ball in front of their player to cost us 2 points at the death. I do not doubt his ability as a Keeper to have had the career he has had, but based on what we have seen so far, he simply is not coping with the pressure of being at ITFC.

Cook: Recruitment Has Been of a Very High Standard
at 15:53:35

Recruitment has been as fantastic as the results have been poor. Having said that, having watched all but 1 game, some concerns:
1. Hldaky is so poor and does not command his box. Holy would have been OK i think, but Walton should be the solution now. TICK!
2. CDM keeps getting mentioned, but Evans is a far better player than he is showing currently so give him time. Plus, Tom Carroll is here and nearly fit. Must be good enough. TICK!
3. Edwards covers 1 wing, but the other looked weak, but then Burns shows us what he can do on Sat! Now we have Celina too. TICK!
4. Almost all goals conceded have been from mistakes, Goalkeeper fault, and/or set piece. Virtually nothing from open play ! THIS IS ALL ON THE COACHES

Basically I think we cannot ask for any better squad in this league, but am worried about our ability to coach a team to defend. Been saying it for weeks now and Mick Mills said it on Sat; all our current coaches are attack minded! And we then let Terry Butcher walk away from coaching at the Club?! That I do not get.

PC will be given time, we will score goals and be entertaining for sure, but can he stop us conceding....not so sure.

Dobra Set for Colchester
at 15:48:26

Don't get this. Apart from the debate on OUR first Team, I thought the big problem was that PC thought we basically had a bunch of loses, so why send him out to a club full of those players....and presumably that mentality?!

Evening With Burley in Bury
at 17:13:59

Seen it said here and I keep saying it. GB's methods were not new, they were a hybrid of Sir Bobby's. His ethos was not new either, but it worked and it was all ipswich.

I firmly believe he could have turned around LAST season's squad, and properly progressed some of your youth instead of dumping them all. Maybe the moment has passed but if PC is winless in another month's time then what better option do we have?!

Cook: We’ve Had No Choice With Some of Our Selections
at 12:34:51

Am not a knee jerker, and WILL give this team time, but please let's keep it real and acknowledge that he had wide player options to not HAVE to stick Fraser out there to basically shut down 1 wing. Dobs, Barry and I would argue even KVY would all have been better options rather than sitting on the bench.

PC is definitely already trying to squeeze players into the starting line up, and will need to get past that quickly if we are to succeed this season

Town Closing in On Carroll
at 14:34:52

blues1 we keep getting told Piggot is better as a 10 and I know our Keeper's stats....but have you not watched him play for us in pre-season and at the first 2 league games. Maybe it's nerves, i really hope so, but if his decision making does not improve he will cost us dear.

Town Closing in On Carroll
at 11:32:19

Delighted with this of course. Sadly I do not think we have enough to get promoted as our weaknesses are in the key areas of up top and at the back. Not convinced about either of our Keepers, jury out on CBs and we are short of an out-and-out no.9 to fire us to promotion. However, I trust that the Management have a similar view and have more recruits still to come.....and hopefully players gel soon, before the season has gone.
