|Anyone seen pictures from Texas yesterday?|

First full capacity event in US pro sports since the pandemic began. 40000 at Globe Life Field for the Texas Rangers' home opener.
They're probably jumping the gun a little bit, and I'm pretty sure it was only a tester, going back to limited capacity today, but it's still nice to see that the prospect of full stadiums could be on the cards fairly soon.

Could define our season. If we come out of these next five in/around the top six we could really be looking good.
That's a pretty favourable run in from the Wigan game onwards, all of the bottom six, one of whom (Wimbledon) we play twice. MK (15th) Fleetwood (16th) and Shrewsbury (17th) also aren't much to write home about.

But out of Lewis Price and Shane Supple which was the better keeper? I didn't see either play but it seems like the last time before now that we had two number 1 keepers in the team.
|NFL Wild Card Weekend|
at 22:48 8 Jan 2021
After yet another 17 weeks where the Cowboys find a way to disappoint me, it's time for the play offs. For you NFL fans on here, what are we reckoning happens this weekend?
Bills beat Colts
Ravens beat Titans (really tough call)
Browns beat Steelers
Seahawks beat Rams (could go either way if Goff plays)
Saints beat Bears
Bucs beat WFT

Luke Chambers' late goal against QPR in 2015 remains the last goal Ipswich scored in a Boxing Day game. Somewhat surprising and depressing stat. If memory serves all of our last four boxing days have been terrible performances as well.
|Running off the ball|

The single most important part of playing midfield, especially when you're trying to play out from the back as you've got to get the ball off the defence and to the strikers.
Nolan and especially Huws basically don't do it.
at 23:08 3 Nov 2020
We can appeal that right? Arguably our most important player, would be tough to lose him.

Now won as many races as Michael Schumacher, and will equal his 7 titles won by the end of the season. Britain's greatest ever sportsman?

It's finally that time of year again, it's seemed an even longer break this time around given the tumultuous offseason and no preseason games.
I'm predicting a Saints-Ravens Super Bowl with Brees riding off into the sunset with his second ring. Chiefs and Cowboys to be losing conference teams. Mahomes for MVP.

I think most are in agreement that he was our best striker last year (11 goals 7 assists), but I'm struggling to see where he fits in this year.
Lambert's making it pretty clear that 433 is his chosen formation, and if he's learnt his lesson from last year he's not going to constantly change it to shoehorn players in. Jackson isn't a leader of the line, and he struggles with his back to goal, so I can't see him as the central striker, with Hawkins, Norwood, Drinan and possibly Folami even being more suited.
He could play out wide, he's quick and can cross well, but Sears, Edwards and Lankester are all more suited to the wide forward roles, possibly Dobra too but I see him more as a 10.
So with his contract situation seemingly at a halt and the system not really being suited to him, is it worth selling him while we can still get reasonable money for him?

We shouldn't have promotion and relegation. Coventry and Rotherham weren't anywhere close to being guarenteed promotion so they wouldn't get screwed like Tranmere and Posh do with the chosen resolution. The Prem and Championship are playing so should have the promotion/relegation between them but you can't argue it's particularly fair for clubs to get relegated with unplayed fixtures, like Tranmere.
|Overrated Town players|
at 09:26 12 Apr 2020
I feel like best and worst Ipswich players are discussed to death on here, so I'd be interested to see which players people thought were generally overrated by our fanbase. This doesn't mean they weren't good but instead that you couldn't understand what all the fuss was about.
Cristophe Berra- Good defender, but was talked up like one of the best in the league even though he could barely complete a five yard pass at times.
Aaron Cresswell- By all means has gone on to prove me wrong. The best crosser of the ball I've ever seen Ipswich have but honestly never blew me away as a defender, always thought Mings was better for us.
Keith Andrews- We've been so starved of midfielders who can score goals that people think Andrews was actually good. He barely even ran. Jonathan Douglas with a good shot.
at 22:21 11 Feb 2020
Surely worth a go in the team, Judge's position but in the hope he might actually be good, we need a link between midfield and the forwards.
at 18:05 26 Dec 2019
Woolfenden looks like he could be some player, hardly a foot wrong, so composed on the ball.
|The midfield was horrible|
at 22:29 10 Dec 2019
Skuse was horrible, misplacing passes and slowing the game down, Huws barely looks fit, will he ever get back to form after the injury? Edwards and Judge were way too narrow.
There should have been changes in the first half, it so obviously wasn't working. Why were Downes and Dozzell dropped? Dobra needs more games.
That's on Lambert.
at 18:48 9 Nov 2019
Had a good game today I thought, possibly his best of the season.
|We miss Downes|
at 12:53 20 Oct 2019
Getting over run in midfield. Would say we should go four at the back but we'd have to bring on Donacien at right back.
|So what exactly was Paul Hurst thinking...|
at 17:44 31 Aug 2019
When he decided KVY on a free wasn't for him but £750,000 on Donacien was a good move.
KVY had a really good game today, looks like the first proper attacking full-back we've had since Mings
|442 it is then|
at 22:27 20 Aug 2019
System rather than personnel was what was wrong first half, Donacien was the only individually poor player so it was the incorrect formation causing us issues.

Been detained for possible corrupt vote for Qatar. If he's found guilty there's a very real chance Qatar lose the world cup, with England being touted as a possible alternative. While in my mind he is absolutely guilty (what other reason would he have voted for Qatar?), I doubt anything will happen and personally I believe Qatar will still host. Thoughts?
