I think many of those having a wee dig at those of us who are experiencing an 'Ipswich way' meltdown today are missing the point.
No-one but no-one in their right mind could possibly want to retain the failure and culture we've experienced in the past 18 or so years. But, in suggesting that those of us advocating the retention of the 'Ipswich way' are happy with failure, you are assuming that we are associating that 18 year period with the 'Ipswich way'. I would suggest that this isn't what people are saying at all.
I can only speak for myself in saying that I am absolutely 100% keen on change (who honestly wants to sit through more of the dross that has been served up during the Marcus Evans era?), but there are degrees of change and if change is so sweeping that you lose much of what binds people together, then how is that positive?
Whilst I recognise that for many it appears to be only the name, location and colour of the club that acts as the glue, for others there is a sense of history and culture (real or imagined) that is very keenly felt. Accepting that we aren't including failure and mediocrity as part of that culture, is it so wrong to want to retain that?
