The last time I enjoyed supporting Town he was manager.

The pattern fits, in fifteen years we've had Posh Scouse, Cheeky Scouse, Squeaky Scouse and now Dour Scouse. So it must be Ginger Scouse next?

To get the best out of Town's current predicament you ideally have to change your view of what is success/an enjoyable watch.
I've started to do that and it really works. Instead of craving great football, goals, wins and promotions you need to see ITFC as the complete soap opera they are now. Different multi millionaire owners, seemingly the best managers available employed regularly and yet everything we touch turns to complete and utter sh*te. National TV match embarrassments, cup losses and an inexorable march backwards all guaranteed.
There'll be plenty of entertainment to come, as our current predicament with dozens of expensive players signing to play for a manager who has been sacked become disillusioned. Then our CEO who really thinks he is the manager will have to sign another twenty or so presumably leading to the US owners pulling out in alarm as they can't afford to have all their firefighters have to work for another five years to support us. It should last for as long as we become AFC Ipswich or cease to exist altogether.
So go on have a chuckle. I did when Charlton scored their second last night.

Perhaps the City fans knew a bit more about him than we do. Seems to be going to a similar plan so far.

Well she brilliantly set up the second goal but to be honest there wasn't a weak link there. I think Argyle only got through on about two occasions and our goalie was well up to both of them. Yes Eloise stood out too and you can tell how much she loves the game and club when she's interviewed.
It was good sitting up high in the stand too, with some crazy weather; one minute sunny then torrential downpour. Good for photography.

I was there yesterday! It was a cracking day out and I was impressed with the whole team, they look really solid and focused. Have to give a mention to Zoe Barratt, she was everywhere and always demanding the ball. Lucy O'Brien's a skillful winger too. Wish I could watch them every fortnight which would be a bit difficult living in Devon.

Can anyone tell how I can watch the Shrewsbury match tomorrow on ifollow, when I look at the availabilty of this match it only allows an audio pass at £2.50? I thought all matches were available to watch online.

We're nowhere near a team are we. We have good players so we can thump a team out of form 6-0.
As soon as the going gets a bit tougher either poor management or poor mentality gets us found out.

I shall just park this Guardian comment here I read this morning, and say nothing.
"Ipswich CEO Mark Ashton appointed himself head of recruitment when CEO at Bristol City and proceeded to sign players left right and centre whether or not the manager wanted them or they fitted any playing plan, leaving a bloated squad and wage bill. We managed to ship out a dozen or so in the summer but are now financially hamstrung.
He is not qualified for the role but loves the buzz of a signing and it's invariably him not the manager who is pictured with the players.
At the end of the window he will do an interview about what a great job he has done but as things go wrong on the pitch he will disappear.
If results don't improve he will sack Paul Cook and replace him with a patsy who will suck up to him.
Cook is a pretty straight talking guy so I can envisage a public falling out at some point in any event. But Ashton is a mate of the owners so he will not be held accountable.
Good luck to Ipswich fans, loved your club since the great days under Sir Bobby but do be sceptical about the man running your club."

Feels like 2009/10 all over again with Keane.
All that excited anticipation crushed so early.

At least fifteen new players signed, and presumably on better wages than would be offered by other L1 clubs (and possibly some in the Championship). How will they all feel if things go badly, or if Paul Cook leaves? Are the owners being naive, or just determined?
Just a few thoughts milling around me head as I enjoy an early evening Rioja.

Can't stand it, as indicated on yesterday's thread. We should be 'Town', which would also indicate we are the best supported club with the Town name. It's the 'Boys' thing I think I hate the most, could just about live with Tractors I suppose.

The main thing I've drawn from this thread is that no one seems to find it unnacceptable that you can call someone a "cheating bald c**t".
Presumably you'd all be happy if it was said to you.
