Next 5 games will tell us where we are.....

Plymouth (a)
Wycombe (a)
Oxford (h)
Sunderland (a)
Rotherham (h)

Playing 5 of the top 6 - what do we need to come out of that with?

I'd take 9 points now, in fact I'd bite your hand off for it!

Really interesting comments from Roberts on Chaplin/Number 10 role…..
at 10:22 24 Oct 2021

…..bearing in mind he must be speaking from experience as well.

“Number 10, in our team is the toughest position on the pitch. You’ve got to create, you’ve got to score and you’ve got to look after the deep-lying midfielder, so it’s a lot of work. Conor will sleep well tonight.”

Enjoyable Darren Currie interview here

“Ipswich Town is probably the happiest and most productive time in my career. I thoroughly enjoyed playing for every club that I played for because of how I feel about football but Ipswich is a special place and it is an incredible football club. They are probably the most educated set of fans that I have played in front of and that is steeped in their history. They understand good football and they have had some fabulous players through the years so their understanding of the game is very good.“

Jay Metete - their number 20
at 19:51 23 Oct 2021

20 years old, out of contract in the summer, sign him up.

Not many times you watch an opposition player and think, just get the deal done if you can - but today was one of those days - less than 30 senior games under his belt across Fleetwood and a loan spell at Grimsby last year - but looks to have something

What a difference a goal makes…..
at 18:08 23 Oct 2021

…..do we have lift off?

I’ve always felt the minimum we could drift along at to stay in the mix was 1.5 points per game, now at 20 from 14 we are basically there….

A really good win, was well deserved - but the late goal took the roof of the place. Without that we end up looking at those next 2 away games in a bad place

Players that have grabbed their opportunity so far with both hands....
at 09:50 20 Oct 2021

....for me it is:

Donacien
Burns
Chaplin
Aluko
Bonne

They might not all fit in the team, but those 5 are the only ones for me who can feel aggrieved if they don't play as not put a foot wrong.

School absences - bit of a weird one
at 10:41 18 Oct 2021

My youngest tested positive for Covid last week and due to the current rules my eldest wasn't allowed to go to school for 3 days and then had to have a PCR test before he returns.

So he could go back to school today, but my wife doesn't work Monday or Tuesday so we thought it made more sense to keep him off until Wednesday to ensure he doesn't have a positive test as well (so far so good)

But the school phoned this morning, and said that because I had taken him to football on Saturday (which I didn't) that because he wasn't isolating that this was now an unauthorised absence.

It turns out that someone from the school has checked my Instagram page, and saw that I'd taken him down to Portman Road on Saturday morning to get a new shirt and we had a wander around the ground.

He doesn't legally need to isolate, as I don't, and we are testing every morning so I have no guilt on this - just seems very off from the school to be checking my social media, and then putting a black mark against his name when all we are doing is trying to take the sensible route because of how our childcare arrangements are and allows him to have an extra 2 days to ensure not infected.

He's only in reception, is it normal for schools to be like this?!

When we put performances like that last season….
at 18:47 2 Oct 2021

….we were told it was the players and it wouldn’t happen when we get new ones in.

When we put in performances earlier in the season like that we were told it wouldn’t again when Samy Morsy was in the side….

…and yet we still put in nothing performances when out battled and out thought.

Somethings not right here, and it hasn’t been for a long time

Stats dump - some very interesting things in here
at 10:28 27 Sep 2021

https://dataviz.theanalyst.com/season-reviews/2021/?competition_id=11&season

Defensively
In open play we are the meanest defence in the league - only 4.4 xG conceded this season. Means we have come up against some good finishing and bad goalkeeping, from set pieces we are 18th in the league - 2.9 xG against

Attack
Open Play - 13th best attack in the league
Set pieces - 19th best attack in the league

For all the promising attacking football we seem to see, we really do not create anything like enough good chances - final ball lacking?

Set pieces have to improve at both ends as well

Seems incredible that as we sit in the bottom 4 of League 1....
at 09:50 27 Sep 2021

.....as we approach the end of the second month of the season, there seems to be little pressure applied to the club at the moment.

For me tomorrow is an absolute must-win game, if we go into October with just one win under our belt and in the relegation zone then we are basically out of automatic contention, and the play offs will be a massive stretch.

On the flip side, if we win, which we undoubtedly should do, then it's 7 points out of 9 and things feel a bit more positive - we need to start stringing proper runs of wins together though or we are going nowhere
