It should be no surprise that the defence needs some work

Of the three teams we've played, only Meppen are any where near what we are likely to be up against this season?

Question for the cricket buffs
at 18:09 10 Jul 2019

Four Day Cricket struggles but T20 certainly brings in the crowds

I can't imagine Suffolk are high up the list of Minor Counties likely to qualify for full status but you could put forward an argument for a combined East Anglian group from Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire

Absolutely no money available for transfers then

Have we got big money for anyone really though? We were banking on Bart going

We still have a £7 million shortfall this season before the season even kicks off?

Does anyone have a song they hate so much

I think we all have a song like that

We have the radio on at work and the new Just East Advert is particularly irritating!

Sunderland game not on TV then.

Interesting logic but we were actually the 2nd highest watched side behind Leeds a few seasons ago I believe

We clearly have a lot of closet or lapsed fans who remember when we were good?

Your best Ipswich XI since Premier League relegation?
at 23:23 3 Jul 2019

Wilnis was a very good right back and still figured in Royle's side?

Wright was solid enough and reliable without being outstanding, I thought a little light weight at times but I certainly have no complaints

The reason I have gone for Stearman is simply for height and the fact we looked pretty rock solid with him next Berra, Smith or Chambers

We got something like 14 clean sheets in that season, having been dreadful in the first half of it

We haven't exactly been blessed with right backs post Premier League relegation though have we?

Mine would be

Begovic

Cresswell
De Vos
Macauley
Stearman

Fraser
Magilton
Miller
Walters

Gio
Bent

Subs - Bart, Mings, Wilnis, Mahon, Lawrence, Kuqi, Murphy

Norris imho was massively overated and no better than Gavin Williams before his injury

Holland was still here for a season which is easy to forget

Obviously Rhodes didn't figure enough to feature with the same true for Marriott

Wickham can't be far from the team

The much underated Webster should go on to potentially bigger things than Macauley

Waghorn had he have been here longer would be knocking on the door

Edit: Westlake dropped for Lawrence

Who are our most hated Rivals?
at 09:52 23 Jun 2019

Not that far away, it is almost 70 miles as the crow flies

They are closer to places like Leicester than us, presumably a few Midlands teams will be as near to them?

Why have we just sold a £750k player
at 18:47 21 Jun 2019

I'm not questioning that, it's the undervaluing of players which is my main gripe

This isn't the first time we have done it

We did it with both Webster and Waghorn last season as well

Underselling players isn't the smartest option, whether in a lower League or not

I accept his injury record wasn't great, I don't buy the wages argument though because it can't of been on a massive wedge coming up from League One

Hopefully Lambert has a plan to reinvest these fees

How many wickets will England win by?
at 18:32 21 Jun 2019

On the plus side we have a good record against New Zealand and Australia in recent years although games at a World Cup are always more challenging

The rankings are a bit of a red herring because teams often leave out their gun bowlers for ODI series

I think India are actually the best side and certainly know how to win tournaments

England need to look at James Vince, either Ali or Rashid are vulnerable as well

It seems a bit desperate at the moment

We'll sell Bart for well under his previous valuations also

We are likely to get a sell on from Mings potentially as well

What a disastrous post this has proved to be

Losing several wickets when we were just three down looks like the killer?

to a rival for £300k under last year's fee?

Seems like a pretty bad bit of business to me, whether we wanted him gone or not

They're about to yield a decent kitty from the Clarke transfer too

Have Pompey factored that into the fee with the sell on fee coming our way?

I hope we're actually making some profit on Harrison

Millwall are presumably getting Bart on the cheap? Will Bart actually have to up sticks with Millwall or will he commute?
