|Ipswich Barrow on TV|
at 10:50 5 Dec 2021
Why wasn't this covered by terrestrial TV? I see we have Rochdale Plymouth today, why is that more appealing to the Beeb?
I'm not complaining, they would have been there for blood, will our replay get any coverage does anyone know?
Edit: Despite the mixed results in the cups, I do think the value of the bigger squad is demonstrated, given we can still put out some competitive second strings out
The bigger issue has been our inability to put the foot on the throat sadly

|The Vaccine effect on saving lives|
at 15:14 2 Dec 2021
Hi guys, I've made the mistake of debating the vaccine with anti-vaxxers
Always a mistake
I'm sure someone had shared graphs the other day which showed the massive drop in deaths as the vaccine kicked in
Does anyone have any of these graphs they can share?

Arsenal played in a Premiership style, there's clearly some very talented youngsters in that side
But let's be honest Town should have been out of sight before Arsenal fluked their first goal, which came from absolutely no pressure at all. That's as soft a goal as you can concede.
After that they gave it a go and their second had some quality about it, however I thought they were poor and we should have ground them into the dirt
I think under Lambert and Evans, we'd have comfortably lost that tonight, just through sheer ambivalence to the competition.
Our first choice side would surely have anihilated Arsenal but considering that side had had 11 changes made and hadn't necessarily played together all that much, they were bound to be a bit incohesive and so it proved.
The biggest disappointment was the complete lack of going for the jugular when in charge and taking the foot off the pedal when we were, which ultimately led Arsenal to penalties which we then subsequently lost
Some of those Arsenal players will go on to be Premier League regulars, others will fade into obscurity
Why Premier League clubs are in this tournament, really is the puzzler, greed I guess.
Would you take any of those Arsenal youngsters on loan, I'd be tempted to go for the roaming centre back maybe, he could be interesting, not that we need someone with a lack of experience at the back added to this leaky back four?
Adding Premier League youth teams certainly ruins the crowds for the actual League clubs but it was least a chance for our lads to play a different style of opponent tonight
Hopefully Cook has learnt a few things none the less
|Be honest, who had their doubts about Aluko?|
at 09:41 29 Nov 2021
For me he is a player and always has been really talented, I'm always surprised he didn't go further as a player
He always looked a handful whenever he played against us
I think if he could strike a ball, he'd have played for a top club

Am I right in thinking the club owned or ran the Punch brand?
Surely a fairly unique setup, have other clubs ever done that?
|Steve Bruce to Norwich|
at 09:51 7 Nov 2021
Are we all hoping this happens?
He must be one of their all-time players, would that extra nostalgia be attractive to them?
|550k for Downes|
at 10:13 9 Aug 2021
could be an absolute bargain for Swansea to be fair to them. I hope there's a hefty sell on fee in there.

It may have already been posted but it's been suggested to me today that he is in Town speaking to the club
|Edwards to Wigan|
at 21:18 10 Jun 2021
I got the impression certain players had already been speaking to clubs during the season and were playing within themselves to preserve their fitness
For me this free transfer explains an awful lot

I can remember Coquelin playing for Charlton against us an looking pretty useful in their midfield, I was surprised he didn't make it at Arsenal really
He's now a Europa League Winner
|Even the Statement from the Owners|
at 23:27 7 Apr 2021
seems to suggest they have a plan
I'm not expecting instant results, it's going to take time but they seem to know what they are doing, their track record albeit on smaller projects has been good
Phoenix Rising seem to have a modern approach, aren't afraid to try different things, they seem to have some celebs on board with Phoenix Rising so perhaps they'll have a look at this as well, marketing seems to be one thing which would be a positive for us asides the playing side
My other take from today, given the players linked to other clubs. It explains an awful lot about some strange performances from certain individuals in recent weeks.
|Ipswich have the best squad in League One|
at 10:46 28 Mar 2021
this wasn't even true when we were first relegated
I would say it was about 6th in the league and for me the issue has always been a lack of balance
We lack pace and power through out the side. The team we started with yesterday (KVY aside) was so slow and cloggy, exactly the vision I had of bang average League One sides whenever I had seen them appearing in the FA Cup.
We have a total lack of athletes with no real agility.
Bennetts is a frustrating player but he offers us more than the motley crew we put out yesterday.
The same is true with Parrott and I think both of them improve the balance of our side if nothing else.
Dozzell and Bishop are both talented players but that's a powder puff combo in the middle of the park. We suddenly look short on options with Downes out, Skuse well off the pace, Huws a shadow of his former self and Nolan seemingly cast into the wilderness. McGavin may have done a better job in there but we can't use him either!
Norwood is the only striker who looks up to it and I like the look of Parrot but he isn't ours ultimately.
Kayden Jackson has proved to be disappointing, Sears looks a shadow of the player who McCarthy first signed, Hawkins seems to have disappeared and Drinnan looks like he is playing a league or too high.
I've no doubt Drinnan is going to work hard but he doesn't look quick enough to really make a defence sweat for me. He had a rare burst forward against someone I forget and actually looked quicker than I was expecting but that seemed to be a rare flurry where he looked up to it.
If we somehow fluked our way into the playoffs and won them, we'd need a complete squad rebuild or we could crashing back down with a similar points haul to Wycombe.
