U23s Beaten By Blades in Play-Off Semi-Final
at 09:15:09

What a totally cr@p thing to say blueboy1981. Do you ever focus on the positives? Unfortunately I managed to give you an uppie when I would have liked to have given you ten down votes to match your negativity!

Great effort by the lads across the course of the season!

Blues and Bolton Linked With Aldershot Midfielder

Can't be any truth in this because it would be madness to get rid of the likes of Dozzell and Downes to Championship clubs and replace them with players of this calibre.

U18s Reach Youth Cup Semi-Finals After Rip-Roaring Victory Over 10-Man Blades
at 20:26:37

In fairness they only had ten men for the last seventeen minutes - it underplays the achievement to say we beat ten men.

Absolutely fantastic to watch. Very exciting and something to be proud about. Well done lads!

Cornell and McGuinness in Team of the Week
at 11:57:32

Funny how people watching the same game see different things. Mick Mills was slating McGuiness which whilst I could understand from a 'ball-playing' perspective, felt was harsh simply because he was getting his body in the way time after time.

Cook: First Half Possibly the Worst Performance From One of My Teams in My Whole Managerial Career
at 18:54:23

Spot on Phil1969. Not sure what he expects.

I think he also needs to keep a lid on it now. I think he's now just saying things to try to protect his position which isn't in any doubt at this stage anyway. His honesty has been very refreshing, but now he's going too far and ends up contradicting himself. Save it Paul; we all know the situation and we all know things will change in the summer so let's just get through the last three games without the negativity because it no longer serves any purpose.

Cook: You're Not Going to Go 100 Per Cent For a Manager Who's Not Committing to You
at 11:46:54

TractorRoy, I think when you have three or four playing for a new contract you might expect an upturn. When you have 30 odd it can do nothing positive for morale or performances....

Przybek Returns From Chesterfield Loan
at 13:42:56

James Rowe is a very good up and coming manager and I think given his links with the club, could be a future Town manager. Fully trust what he is saying here.....albeit whether or not he would have fitted into the culture he is trying to create when he was younger is open to question!

Cook Talks to Blue Action Following Banner Protest Against Owner
at 15:34:03

The second part may be true Bluearmy_81 but the first bit is total rollocks. It doesn't make any sense. Why would a football related consortium seek to only purchase land? We know they are behind the searches.

Cook: The Sunday Headaches Are Back But It's a Privilege
at 13:21:51

"In my world, I think football’s about playing off your front foot, it’s about being expansive, progressive, passing the ball, looking good on the eye, but most of all winning."

This. Absolutely this.

Cook's First Town Press Conference - Part Two
at 19:21:51

Whymark4 its proper Ipswich - Robson, Burley, Royle style passing football. Whenever his teams have come to Portman Road it has been a reminder to me what we used to have and just how terrible our style has been since Royle (I don't include Magilton in the bracket because his style of play as a manager was never as good as his style as a player).

Training Suspended Due to Blue Action Protest Fire
at 07:40:07

Whilst I do feel Lambert must go, there are ways and means and this isn't it. Up until now Blue Auction's protests have been well thought-out and given the circumstances, impactful. This one was impactful in all the wrong ways.

Although the club may be pushing the truth in suggesting players' well-being was endangered, the use of flares so close to where training was taken place was far from sensible.

In addition, whilst many of us would like our voices to be heard, breaking lockdown rules when there are far more important things going on (it doesn't make anyone less of a fan to acknowledge that!) is simply stupid. All they have now done is hand the moral high ground back to the club which let's be honest, really shouldn't be in any kind of position to thumb its nose at the fan base at this moment in time.

All of the above obviously also overlooks the fact it was pretty embarrassing. Four or five lads with flares and flags isn't going to make Lambert walk or Evans take action, it just looks lame.

But, moggasnotebook you are out of line and wide of the mark with your last paragraph. Phil and Gav have remained incredibly impartial given the circumstances. You may or may not have noticed, that unlike other local media they haven't done any opinion pieces, only balanced reporting of facts. In the context of an organisation unfairly (and with some of the club's tactics, boarder line illegally) trying to stifle your right to make a living, I am not sure you would show the restraint that Phil and Gav have, I know I wouldn't. If you believe that the reporting on here is negative then by all means don't read it and go elsewhere, otherwise please have a little more respect for those putting together decent content despite the unfairness of their position.

Ipswich Town 3-2 Leeds United - Match Report
at 15:24:41

Not interested in people saying Leeds we're off the pace, we played very well and that's all that matters.

If ever there was such a thing as a 'downward promotion' we've just experienced it. Amazing possitivity in the face of a fairly desperate situation. Seventeen years of sameness, with fifteen of those being pretty dire football are about to be replaced with a new adventure. Not all adventures are positive, but there's a good chance this one will be and I can't wait for next season.

Ref the second Leeds goal, I thought it was Ayling being fifty odd yards offside that the players (and us in the stands) we're all angry about rather than the handball.

Town Spend £790,210 on Agents' Fees
at 19:56:01

Unfathomable like the size of your brain Bluearmy_81...?

You misinterpret what I said. I said "in many ways" which clearly suggests not in every way. I would much rather we were spending millions more on transfer fees, but I am glad we're not fuelling what is a parasitic industry.

Anyone with any sense would surely rather we spent more buying players - it's pretty stupid to suggest otherwise and clearly I wasn't.

Town Spend £790,210 on Agents' Fees
at 13:18:37

A few things strike me about this:

1) Why did we need to pay an agent for Tommy Smith's departure? I guess because he needed to negotiate the end of his contract (I think he was still under contract) but still...
2) Why do we have to pay agents when existing players receive new contracts? Shouldn't the player pay their agent for this (that's a rhetorical question...)?
3) Just look at the number of clubs that have paid more to agents than we have paid in transfer fees. Amazing just how uneven the playing field is in the Championship.

In many ways I'm glad we were at the lower end of the scale though, even if that is a reflection on limited transfer spend. It at least means we're not allowing vast sums of money to exit the game (albeit £790k is pretty vast).
