and take the positives which were we created as many shots on target as they did and we defended as team and looked like they were playing for the managers job.
Yes we rode our luck but when you play away from home against a good footballing team as Swansea are who by the sounds of it played their best football of the season then sometimes thats what you have to do.
Yes they got behind our fullbacks several times and yes they bossed the possession but apart from the two goals Gherks only really had to make one top class save. But that also helped us break catching their fullbacks high up the pitch so worked in our favour also.
Looking on the Swansea forum they all state that after we got battered for the first 20 minutes they could see us grow into the game and were concerned how easily we carved them open on the break several times.
Play with that intent and intensity for the next 4 games I can see us picking up at least a couple of wins possibly more.
Have we turned the corner? Not quite but the indicators are blinking so lets hope the monkey is well and truly off our back and the boys can go out and play with a little less pressure and give us a little more harmony on this divided board.
I thought we played two different Ipswich teams tonight. The first was relegation fodder and could have been two or three down at half-time. The second was sharper, quicker to the ball and more self-confident, and will challenge for a respectable mid-table position.
