I know this won't be the first thread on this.. but I'm feeling, despite the exciting prospect of on-field improvements, a little bit uneasy about the thought of a takeover.
Whilst I acknowledge the fact that Evans has got so much wrong in his tenure as our owner, I genuinely believe he does have the best interests of Ipswich Town at heart and I don't worry for our future (at least financially!) whilst the club is in his hands.
What concerns me most is that if he sells to a consortium looking to make "quick money" a couple of years down the line, whether they would be so thorough and careful about who they would sell the club on to (of course, none of us know).
I guess it's a classic ITFC case of "Careful what you wish for"... based on the malaise of the past 14 years, can we dare to dream? We're certainly due a change of fortunes
Whilst respecting the superb job they did at Lincoln, I've never really been a fan of the Cowleys in terms of their style of football and also, to an extent, their personality. I'd argue they probably wouldn't have got Lincoln to where Michael Appleton has so quickly, though of course, we'll never know.
However, it was when watching Danny Cowley providing punditry on a Birmingham game and claiming "Yeah Jutkiewicz probably wanted that 'eader on the other side. We say footballers are right or left footed and I think he's the same with 'eaders" that really turned me off. Certainly wouldn't be my choice of next Ipswich manager!
Just spoke to a Charlton supporting colleague who tells me they have 0 fit centre backs. They played with Chris Gunter and Darren Pratley there on Tuesday and are expected to have the same pairing tomorrow.
That, combined with our lack of midfield options, could make an "interesting" game...
Personally, although I'd be frustrated whilst watching, I'd probably be more than happy to come away with a bad performance and a point in the bag - especially considering the players available for this one and the lengthy travel etc.
Can't see us getting a win, but would be a real statement of intent if we were to pick up 3 points
For all the rubbish that's been said on here in the past week about a very able deputy we have at LB who, by the way, is one of our own he's barely put at foot wrong in that first half. Great to see him prove the doubters wrong
Even more impressive considering he's completely nullified Blackpools star man of the season in CJ Hamilton
Well, just two more games to go in this decade. Whilst I may not have as many years as an ITFC fan under my belt as others on here, I certainly can't think of a worse decade to be a Town fan that last?
I know this has been discussed already, but I can't think of any good reason why we wouldn't sign him. Apart from the fact he's good cover at right back, another option in CM (not that we need that, in fairness) he's also better than the majority of right sided midfielders we have.
Seems a bit of a no-brainer to sign a good, versatile Championship level player whilst we are in League One.
