|So Chambers and Skuse will not be here next season|
at 16:24 7 May 2021
Both are club legends and deserve a proper send-off on Sunday. It could act as a bit of a testimonial for them. If they are not on the team sheet, I will not watch the match tomorrow.
|Out of contract players - updated guess on what will happen....|
at 20:42 3 May 2021
I actually think we should give new contracts to both Nsiala and Wilson, although I think both will be released. They have done a fine job this year, and the defence has not been the problem. The CB position is the only one that doesn't need strengthening, in my opinion.
Donacien is an interesting one. Normally, I would say he is the ideal backup RB at this level, but the problem is that his is backup for Vincent-Young, which means he might end up playing the majority of the matches. If Cook trusts that KVY will stay fit under his management, then we should keep Janoi as backup. If he does not, then we need a new backup RB who could play every game if KVY gets injured again.
I also controversially think we should keep Aaron Drinan and loan him out to league 2. I really do think he has the potential to be an excellent player. But I think it's far more likely that he will be released.

So our best team is:
GK - Holy
CB - Chambers
CB - Wilson
CB - Nsiala
RWB - Matheson
LWB - Kenlock
CM - Bishop
CM - Judge
CAM - Parrott
ST - Hawkins
ST - Sears

Most interesting is that Freddie Sears, the most scapegoated player in the squad, has the best win percentage!
|What teams do you want up/down next season?|
at 17:39 1 May 2021
Yes, so would I. The teams we want are the ones that we have the bet at chance of beating, and that is Derby, Sheff Wed and Wycombe.
But it would be a nice plot twist if Wycombe were to stay up with a 20-0 win on the final day ;)
|Cheers to the Sheffield United Youths|

I agree. Many have said that we were better than the first team, but Sheffield United were better than most of our oppositions this season. Great match!

I'm enjoying this. Excellent run there from Elkan Baggott.
What time did the game start?
|How can it not be Chambers? (n/t)|
at 18:34 30 Apr 2021
I also voted for Luke Chambers, but I don't think it's a shoo-in. Toto Nsiala comes very close for me. It has to be one of the two, but I voted Chambers.
at 16:09 30 Apr 2021
I was going to say that I wonder what the odds of Elkan Baggott winning was. Arguably there are more Elkan Baggott fans than Ipswich Town fans!
But he is not player of the season. It has to be Chambers or Nsiala.

I would definitely keep Nsiala, maybe even as a starting player. He has had an excellent season.
|Hopes for next season|
at 19:19 28 Apr 2021
Good list, but for me the only thing that matters is the first thing on your list. Anything else is a welcome bonus, but if we get promotion, next season should be classed as a success, and if we don’t, it’s a failure.
|Luke Chambers and Cole Skuse|

I'm sure Paul Cook has decided on who is getting new contracts and who isn't by now, and I think it is absolutely imperative that the future of these two is announced officially before the final game of the year. Both have done so much for the club, even if it has declined over their time here, and if they are being released, they both deserve a proper send-off in their final game. Shame it will be without the fans. It would be a very unsatisfactory ending to their Ipswich careers if they were released the day after the final game, without it being officially confirmed that it was their final game. Similar to Matt Neal in the BTCC last year.

It really says something about our season that my three current candidates are Luke Chambers, Toto Nsiala and James Wilson.
