Mick is going to relegate Sheff Weds and Derby

I wonder whether Paul Warne might fancy a new challenge though?

Imagine selling Waghorn and replacing him with Kayden Jackson (n/t)

Jackson. Nolan. Harrison, Nsiala. Edwards. Hurst. Donacien

Summer 2018 was their big break and none of them made anything positive out of it. From the moment they got here, they’ve all to varying degrees looked like they want to be physically sick while wearing our shirt. They were supposed to be the new faces designed to rip up the comfort culture, instead they laid the groundwork together with those who followed them for a culture of failure to go alongside mediocrity.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Town squad that has made it clearer in their performances and their actions that football is their job. Clock in, clock out run around a bit, fail to perform, fail to win, go home. They’ve deserved the empty stadiums because their efforts have only really been worthy of contempt for far too long. And they seem OK with that.

Waghorn had a ringside seat throughout pre-season and enough time to be around Hurst to form his decision though.

Misspelt Town players etc

Always a favourite when writing about managers, though I expect autocorrect didn’t help when writing about Joe Royal, Roy Keen or Paul Jewel.

Back in the days of the Do You Remember....feature I remember one poster saying how much it used to annoy them when journalists/reporters used to refer to Ipswich’s greatest fireman as Nigel Cleghorn.

KVY is not in a good state

Fair enough and it genuinely is a crying shame that Vincent-Young will have to play till he’s 45 to get anywhere near Chambers’s appearance record. But he’s had 18 months out, 6 weeks back and is now into his second injury break of those 6 weeks.

Yes, he probably will do a McGoldrick at Sheffield United somewhere else, but his perpetual injuries have been every bit as much a part of the ennui that’s hung over the club these last few years. Time for a fresh start all round.

No disagreements from me. Time to cut the losses with Vincent-Young and bring in new, more reliable blood.

At least he’ll get 35 + games a season out of Chambers playing there though. He’ll be lucky to get 35+ minutes out of Vincent-Young, who you just know will break down again during pre-season training.

I’d say that was true for all of Hurst’s signings. Overawed in the Championship, disinterested in League One.

Paul Cook is utterly shaming our players today.
at 20:47 30 Apr 2021

Cook came in talking about going for the top 2 and the squad, by and large, didn't want to care because it would mean trying a bit harder than the "just about enough" that too many have put in over the last year. That could be because they're mentally weary after the last few years, but I think that combined with things like the aborted double training session flabbergasted Cook. And there's the rub, I think - Cook also expected to be there or thereabouts...and none of them have done anything to help him or us get there.

The Paul Hurst Dream Continues (n/t)
at 08:26 28 Apr 2021

Hurst’s only two positive achievements here were:

1) Highlighting the underlying culture issues at the club which have choked the club virtually to death over the last few years.
2) Being unbeaten in East Anglian derbies.

He showed perception in addressing point 1, but deserves no credit given that he compounded the problem through poor man-management and poor decision making.

I haven't replied to any one individual post on Chambers Skuse and what they have done here but I do wonder whether people's biggest complaint about them these last few years is that they weren't able to drag the standard up given the mountain of dross which Hurst brought into the club and which Lambert was unable to arrest.

They at least have the memory of playing in a halfway decent ITFC team. Those who've come in since summer 2018 have known nothing but failure, underachievement and fan contempt. because that's al! they've been a part of.

You can’t spend 18 months throwing yourself onto the physio’s couch at every opportunity without it eventually having an impact. Has he not seen what happened to Emyr Huws?

I have to say I’m pleased for Josh Emmanuel that he looks to be on course for a second promotion out of this league in the space of 4 seasons. Clearly had something about him but no-one including McCarthy seemed interested in trying to develop that.

What's quite sad
at 10:17 24 Apr 2021

This is where I do my regular post where I say that comparing most managers start to Robson is flawed given that Bobby’s first four Town matches were against next season’s league champions (Everton), the previous season’s European Cup Winners (Manchester Utd), the Present season’s league champions (Leeds) and the Double winners of two years hence (Arsenal) . To take 2 wins and a draw from that is no small achievement considering the present squad couldn’t match that run of results against Gillingham, Lincoln, Plymouth and Fleetwood.

Of course Bobby had a team to pick from which pizzes all over today’s squad in pretty much every respect, helped by the fact that itnad been on the rise over the previous 2 seasons as against this one which has been in constant decline since August 2018. Demolish away, Paul. Virtually no-one’s shown that they deserve to be kept.

He’s getting off Scot-free because we set a record for iFollow tickets in his first game, after having arrived talking about going for automatic promotion, only to see the players put in a performance which screamed, “Oh no....there’s a bloke shouting at us from the dug out again who actually expects something of us. Ugh!”

Enough is enough.

I wasn’t alive in 1969, but I’d dearly love to see any of the current squad match up to the averageness of players from that period like Baxter, Morris, Mills, Viljoen and Crawford.

A poor side made worse

This is the third manager in a row who has failed to get "buy in from key players".

Who the hell do our squad think they are? I genuinely think you could have Guardiola, Klopp or Bielsa parachuted in and this bunch would resent having to listen to them.
