|This game sums up where we are at the moment|

Complete dominance, Shrewsbury a poor side and creating nothing.
Then, Burgess with a stupid late challenge and they score from one of their only opportunities.
We need to be better in the final 3rd. So many times we got in great positions but the final ball just wasn't there. Once we sort this, we will be a fantastic side. When I checked at half time, they had only had ONE shot! We should have been home and dry by half time.

thing is; we need to learn how to break down teams that are going to sit back and play on the counter attack. We've seen that we can beat the better teams in this league that will come at us and give us space to play, that's not in doubt. But teams like Cheltenham, Cambridge, Morecambe caused us issues whereas they really shouldn't. We often overplayed it yesterday which gave them too much time to get all their players behind the ball.

Got one and also 2, stretching 3 spare seats if anyone needs a lift. Ticket face value.

Somewhere that's reasonably hot ideally. We've not had our honeymoon yet but want to go somewhere at least. This is of course all dependant on Covid. I'm hoping the majority of fears have gone by then, but we will most likely book last minute as if it's still this bad, it's not worth the risk.
New York and Barcelona we've done already.
Considering Thailand but a friend has recently had a bit of a nightmare after testing positive on arrival that has put us off, so we were thinking perhaps Europe or USA, but USA may be a bit expensive over Easter.
Over Easter holidays which seemed a great move at first to use the double BH, but forgot about schools!!!
Would highly appreciate any advice.

Not seen anything about it until now as someone posted a picture of sheets on seats. Also noticed in Celina's photo, there appears to be some in the Cobbold too?

Perhaps I'm seeing this through my blue tinted spectacles, but with many names being ruled out, I'm surprised, as I thought this would be a very appealing job for many.
In league one of course, but:
We have one of the largest fan bases in the league.
We have one of the largest budgets in the league.
We have (Arguably), the best players in the league with crazy depth. Although I'm wondering if this is true at the moment.
We have Takayama, which is a fantastic restaurant.
I'd have thought that this would be really appealing for someone, as there is a real long term vision too. Surely someone like Lampard would see this is as a great opportunity for his CV? Not saying I'd want him, but just an example. Phil's story suggests that he'd want to be in the Championship at the lowest, but that seems strange seeing as we have the players and budget to get there, we just need the right man to guide us.
|Quick look at the Blackburn forum|

Seems they're not bothered if he goes, and one poster in particular was surprised at our excitement.
Starting to think this may just happen. Especially as he's coming to the end of his contract and would likely have a 3 year deal here.

Some of those misses were beyond belief. Frustrating to lose our heads for that short period before and after half time. Hopefully some players are back on Tuesday, but unlikely in this short time.
Celina made a huge difference I thought.
|The 3 behind the striker|
at 19:07 19 Oct 2021
Am I the only one that thinks this set up tonight is probably one of our weaker 3 behind the striker?
I know Fraser gets a lot of stick, but he's been played out of position. Many of our attacking moves go through him. He has the ability to split defences.
Celina Fraser Burns
They should be the front three in my opinion. 2 proper flair wingers with Fraser as the creative 10.
I do rate Chaplin, but I think Fraser is much more suited to the role. I know people will disagree!
|I still can't believe how bad that was today.|
at 17:16 2 Oct 2021
Our midfield was nowhere to be seen and the play was all sooo slow. So predictable and easy to defend against. Considering the quality we have against theirs, it's not acceptable. To think it's now October and we're 19th. Being an Ipswich fan is never easy!
I think Evans was one of our weaknesses today, I look forward to seeing Morsy and Carroll. I think it's a better balance.

But even I can see many positives from today. We were the better team, I don't think anyone can dispute that. On another day, that game would have been buried.
I really like the creativity of Fraser and Carroll.
I think Morsy and Carroll in as the 2 centre mids would be a perfect match.
Celina didn't look great, but think he will grow into it. Especially after suffering from Covid bad and playing in a completely different league.
Looking forward to Tuesday, hopefully we can get our first home win.
