Burns: We Can Still Win the League
at 15:34:27

I like your positivity Wes but remember where we are in the table and the top teams are walking away at an alarming rate whilst we are hoping for a one nil win? Basically, our team if you can call it that yet, are naive and sloppy. We go off with a bang and then end up as a damp squib. There appears to be no resilience in the defence and I include the midfield because they don't get back quickly enough. Looking at the top clubs in the premiership you don't see the defence left alone. The backtracking by the forwards is amazing let alone the mid fielders. Looking in slow motion during the game on Youtube, the lack of team defence is criminal.
As to tactics in this league, having one up front is a joke. Why has Cook bought in so many forwards when he plays his current system where one player is isolated up top? I have a horrible feeling it will be another year before we can get anywhere near the playoffs playing as we are at the moment with the current system. I really hope I'm wrong but having been there in the good times beating Man U with ease makes me very sad dropping to the near bottom of the third tier in football! COYB things have to get better.....don't they!???

Morsy and Armin Make Debuts as Cook Makes 10 Changes

Have they had time to gel!!! LOL.
Seriously, good to see a new combination at the centre of defence and Morsy in the mid field. We can only hope that these guys can get us a win to lift the spirits because it has been like living under a dark cloud for a long time. COYB

Wycombe Match Postponed
at 19:48:52

There will be more gel than on Italian's hair soon. More reprieve time. I hope we don't get another disappointment when the gelling is completed. Getting just a bit fed up now with all the excuses. Faith is one thing but the scales are tilting in the wrong direction at the moment. New keeper and new central midfielder could be the answer if they are available. But what happens to those acquired already? I know more time geling.

Ipswich Town 2-2 AFC Wimbledon - Match Report
at 18:17:45

You don't make progress without a decent goalkeeper. Does he speak English? Sounds like the defence don't understand him or he doesn't understand the defence! Two nil up and then concede two is absolutely crazy. Close the doors while you build a team. Robson built from the back. Hunter and the 'Beat' took no prisoners and Burley and Mick attacked when safe. Super Cooper in goal, how we need the likes again. Cook should have concentrated on building from the back first so now we are sinking slowly into a relegation zone. For heaven's sake this is the third division and we still fail to win at home. Clang clang clang, wake up this is a f***ing disaster! A 20% win rate is not acceptable. The gel has dried up. We need more than green shoots because we haven't even faced top teams in this division! PC had a whole week to practice for this match so... whats the excuse this time? I hate knocking my club that I have supported since 1961 but this is truly a really low spot for the supporters who remain incredibly docile. I really want our club to succeed but does anyone really see this happening soon with the defensive errors and tactical ineptitude when in a winning position. COYB this has to change and quickly. The supporters can only take so much of what you are dishing out. The motto should be when two up ' none shall pass'.

Cook: Soft Goals Are Hurting Us
at 11:44:46

PC you're running out of time. The win lose score games in charge is a horror story and has to be close to an all time record at this once illustrious club. The fans didn't expect miracles but this has to be an all time low. Yes there are positives but that has to be down to the owners giving you the manager a decent budget. I was always under the impression you build a team from the back and the signings have been the reverse. We now have a surfeit of forwards with only a couple who seem capable of scoring goals and well done to Bonne. Our club history in the modern game is not good. Under investment has been the main cause now we have good backers and the club should be striding forward again.
I "really really" hope we can achieve this in the next month but its going to be down to a system of play that suits the guy's on the pitch. Round pegs in square holes has been our constant downfall in recent years. SO PC its down to you and your tactics because the players in general look the part. Prove to the fans you have the tactical ability required to use the players to their best abilities and not expect to them to fit your plans at least not not immediately. Good luck Paul we all want the same... ITFC to be great again!

Cook: We Played Really Well, But You Just Can't Miss That Many Chances
at 11:00:33

Looks like we're in for a long haul. Patience required until November methinks. If the results are not positive before then then PC will be in the firing sights of many especially the owners. However until that time KEEP THE FAITH and support the team and the manager because its hard to build a winning team especially when they are mostly new faces. Good luck Paul you are going to need it. Get some tall hard ba****ds in defence and we won't be letting silly goals in. COYB

Cowley: Jacobs Has Been “Mucked Around, Messed Around” By Town
at 10:57:23

Cowley sour grapes?! He has now bought another player he wanted out but he's got another on the books he didn't want. We do need more in midfield but hell let's concentrate on quality central defenders otherwise we will be fielding all attackers LOL. Please PC, don't keep us waiting any longer its nail biting.

Town Sign Ex-West Brom Forward Edwards
at 15:50:24

Wow the videos look awesome. Does he play like that all the time?!! Will the rest of the team keep up with that pace? Really excited with this guy. Beginning to believe that sideways & passing backwards is a thing of the past.
Seriously concerned about the lack of defensive players not being signed. But now in Paul C we trust. I can't believe he hasn't anyone in mind. Let us know soon guys because the supporters are getting just a little worried. Its time for some steel at the back.

Ashton: Character is Key
at 12:31:53

'Blueears', Terry Butcher didn't seem strong enough when he first appeared and he made some terrible errors in his first few games but he grew into the part so give the guy from Rangers time. He has youth on his side but I have the feeling he will be a great addition eventually and with his stature a real presence at the back. Several supporters didn't think much of Mings at the beginning but look at him now. We have to have faith in PC in his choice of players and the scouts who report back to the club. I think it looks promising, so like many, cautious optimism is the current situation.

Jackson on Target But U23s Lose at Chelmsford
at 10:01:28

O Lordie! Sad days. This is a team game which is worrying. Senior players should be leading from the front and I would have expected a much better result. PC must be disconsolate after these preseason games. Its gonna take a whole lot of patience from everyone if this continues. COYB

Cook: We'll Have to Be Adaptable and Patient
at 17:31:39

In general I don't think its the fans that will be impatient its more likely it will be the new owners who have bought into the club with large amounts of money. American owners have a reputation for wanting results and quickly. I do hope PC gets his team going reasonably quickly and certainly before Christmas otherwise Santa will not be calling at his house with any presents from America. Good luck Cooky you have my support and many other supporters.

Legend Butcher Exits U23s Role
at 10:47:31

This is the first strange decision I 've seen from the new management. Terry has been brilliant for this club and England. Surely he will be missed massively with his experience as a defensive giant. He is a club LEGEND and will never be forgotten. There has to be an extremely good reason for him to lose this post and I guess it is very unlikely we the fans will ever know what this was. Terry, saw you when you played your first game for the club in the first division (now Premiership) and will never forget it. Home grown and a star. Thank you for your undiminished love for Town.

Lee: It Was a Mad Time to Work at the Club
at 17:30:15

'The King is dead long live the King'. The trouble for us the fans is that we mostly didn't realise fully what was going on. Looking back I now have a degree of understanding for both Mick M and PL . It must have been extremely difficult for them under ME. If what Alan Lee is telling us is the unadulterated story then this ship has been sinking for a long time and our future success is now in the hands of a far more professional group of owners and a manager with proper backing. Good luck to all those in charge of our beloved club and thank you for giving us the fans something to hope for over the next few years.

Blues Target Millers Midfielder Crooks
at 17:25:06

Great to see some serious height in the squad especially from midfield where so often we have been bullied off the ball without losing quality on the ball. Hope we get him as we have for far too long now been lightweight. You don't get out of this league with boys alone. Muscle and skill will be needed on a budget so Matt seems a good target to me.

Ashton: Too Big an Opportunity to Turn Down
at 20:18:08

Good Luck Mark and welcome to a club that out gunned some of the top of clubs in the country and Europe. I just worry at the amount of chiefs being brought in and little sign of any quality players. Is there going to be enough money in the bank to fund all this? The club has limped along for a long time cash strapped with little in the way of money available to buy decent players to get us out of this league and back at the top where this wonderful club should be. I just hope I live long enough to see this happen again having supported it since Sir Alf was the manager. Ambition on the pitch is what the supporters want to see and that costs a great deal of cash these days but time will tell. We're all keeping our fingers crossed in anticipation.

Blues Linked With Former Pompey Keeper-Coach
at 12:37:39

Looks like finding actual quality players is much harder than PC thought. To be fair on last season's results who wants to come anyway. I hope this is not the case and that soon we shall see some decent players signing on the dotted line. Perhaps PC is being more circumspect and taking into account players less prone to injury before buying and in which case this can only be a good thing. I think we all must be patient and trust our new manager and the massive backroom staff that are joining the club. Good luck PC and I just hope it all works out. To be honest still a little concerned based on results towards the end of this season.
