Style of Play
at 16:23 7 Aug 2022

Obviously only a sample size of two for this season but we are currently moving the ball forward more quickly and making fewer passes in build up play. Will be interesting to see how this develops over the season.

Passes per sequence

21/22 - 3.38
22/23 - 2.46

Sequence Length
21/22 - 8.92
22/23 - 5.75

Direct Speed
21/22 - 1.32
22/23 - 1.62

Stats for the Opta Data Hub.

Lots of new posts at the Foundation
at 13:41 5 Jul 2022

To go along with the EADT post about 'taking back our territory from Norwich' the Ipswich Foundation has just put out job adverts for another 11 roles.

Club is clearly putting at least some of its money where its mouth is.

Adem Atay Interview
at 20:50 1 Jul 2022

Excellent interview here with our newly departed Academy Coach. Seems like a thoroughly good guy and clearly loves Town.

A different perspective on some of our former managers/staff. Hope he does well and comes back to us eventually!

Who is your marquee signing?
at 11:56 28 Jun 2022

Lots of talk about needing a marquee signing. Not needing a marquee signing. What on earth is a marquee signing.

Interested in who people think meets the following criteria:

1) Is a big enough name to warrant the term 'marquee'.
2) Would fit into our current set up?
3) Would want to join us?
4) Is feasible for us to sign based on wages/budget etc.

Personally not convinced there's a huge number that meet all of those criteria but interested to see who people do think fits the bill.

New Dom Ball Podcast
at 15:16 16 Jun 2022

A QPR podcast has done a new interview with Dom Ball. The whole thing is worth a listen but at the beginning he talks about McKenna being a key reason he wanted to come and join us.

The more I listen to him the more I think he'll be a great character to have around the club. Hopefully he does some mentoring for some of our Academy players.

What's Your 24/7 Portman Road Feature?
at 15:22 11 May 2022

On the TT podcast yesterday Mark Ashton said he wanted to see Portman Road used 365 days a year, 24/7.

Apart from a pub/restaurant open more than match days what would you open at Portman Road to get it used more?

Team Goal of the Season
at 12:38 27 Apr 2022

Celina's chip unsurprisingly won the vote at the end of season dinner for goal of the season.
Amazing goal but largely dependent on an individual effort (as were all of contenders for the EFL award).

What is everyone's team goal of the season?

Our third against Gillingham Away would be my pick

League One Style of Play
at 09:53 14 Apr 2022

The Analyst website has a season review page including League One. One of the tabs lets you look at style of play. There's often talk of our style not being suited to League One so I plotted the current League position against each club on their chart.

All it really shows it that there isn't one style that works well in this league - you just have to execute your chosen style well.

Next Season - U23 Opportunities
at 12:22 23 Mar 2022

One observation on opportunities for younger players is that with McKenna wanting to work with a smaller squad size then opportunities next season are likely to come in the EFL League Cup and assuming we don't promoted the Papa John's trophy.

Hopefully McKenna's approach will be about integrating a few promising younger players into the first team squad rather than a wholesale rotation.

1. Partial demolition and alteration to South East corner
2. Alteration to Home & Away Dugouts
3. New 'Big Screen' over South East corner

The planning ref is 22/00206/FUL and you should be able to view and comment on the application at https://ppc.ipswich.gov.uk/searchselect.asp once the documents are live.
