Cook: Players Need to Lift the Fans
at 13:53:46

The fans are tired Mr Cook. They have had years of people claiming this, and claiming that, all of them have never lived up to their words. So you will find, that when we have a run like the past 5-6 games, the fans will very quickly default to anticipating another false dawn. Whilst Sunderland was a good performance, unfortunately, it mean't nothing as we lost the game 2-0.

Bonne: I Don’t Want QPR to Recall Me
at 07:48:12

We have some great games coming up for MacAughley, he will love Charlton away and three full houses over Xmas will be games that he will remember for the rest of his life.

He clearly wants to stay here and get us back to the premier league. You can’t write a better script for him.

Would like to see him get 25 goals this season and also would like to see him making more of a nuisance of himself up top when the ball comes
Up to him. But he is doing great.

Cook: We Fully Deserved Something Out of the Game
at 18:41:48

Agreed we did not deserve to lose that game. But we need a reaction on Tuesday night, and more importantly, we need 3 points, and that is going to be a tough game of football.

Cook: Strongest League One Ever
at 06:01:39

Eddie1985, you are now arguing your point of view well. There is a serious risk that if after 2/3 years we have not made the desired progress, people are going to get twitchy. You are right, it has not been 15 years of toxicity, that was an exaggeration, there were some good years in the early days of the Evans era for sure. Constructive criticism is very useful, essential even.

All I would say is try and keep in mind what we are trying to achieve now:

at 17:17:59

TimmyH, if you read between the lines from the comments from the players you will see, they actually like
being supported. That makes them feel good and WANT to perform for the club. You may think they are all paid very well and should want this anyway, but in real life, players (and the managers) are human beings and do get effected by comments like yours.

What people write on social media / internet platforms has a huge effect on people, a quick news search will confirm this, and the sooner we have some sort of regulation / accountability the better. Paul Cook also appears to be quite sensitive about what is written about him, and I would rather his full focus is on getting us promoted.

We have had 15 years of Toxic negativity at this football club, I just think it would be nice if we could
just try supporting the manager and the team this year (100%, regardless of your views), as I think a lot of people are fed up with negativity. It does not mean anyone is in a delusional state about where we are at, we all see the same things. If we can all pull together, we will be far more likely to see the results we all desperately want.

FYI - I have been posting on this board for 30 years.

Cook: Having a United Suffolk Behind Ipswich Town Can Only Be Good
at 12:10:58

There will always be the keyboard warriors out there who will try and bring negativity, but they are not true supporters. Even when more regulation comes in, we will always have to put up with these people.

Overall, the positivity is very good right now, we need to keep pushing hard to keep the momentum up.

TimmyH and DaGremloid, we don't need constant negativity at this football club, we don't need so called 'supporters' (clue in the name) sniping at every word that comes out of the managers mouth. What you are doing is detrimental and quite frankly, we don't need supporters like you.

Baggott Wins First Full International Cap

Sounds like he is making good progress, maybe Barrow at home (2nd round) could be a good game for him to get more game time for the 1st team.

Schwartz: One Goal Short of the Perfect Night
at 18:25:53

Thank you Ed for supporting this initiative: PackOutPR. It is a fantastic scheme, truly well done.

Any chance you can you get Mark Ashton to sort out the Sir Bobby Robson Stand? We need a proper singing stand at Portman Road, with a well designed roof so we can generate some decent noise.

When they replace 'the old North Stand', they killed the atmosphere. There is this horrible concrete block roof in the back part of the Lower part of the SBR stand, and the roof in the Upper part of SBR stand is too high up for the people singing in the lower section to benefit from it. Also, over the years, a lot of the middle sections of SBR lower have been populated by very loyal supporters, but not necessarily 'singers'. So we now section 6 (Blue Action) stuff down the corner of the lower part of the stand, which makes the job of generating noise twice as hard.

The whole SBR stand design is not well suited to generating decent noise.

If you take a look at the noise generated at the Wycombe (away) game, and Charlton (away) will be the same. We want this noise and atmosphere at home, every week.

Cook: We Deserved to Win
at 19:33:17

We are definitely a top six side now, no doubt about it. The question now is how do we become a top two side so we win games like today.

Is it more time on the training pitch or. Further strengthening required? Difficult to say as the defence were excellent today as was the goalkeeper.

I think we did not win today as we were not quite 100% commitment, we
Need to really want it more than they do in these matches and that means 1st the ball, closing down and winning the 2nd balls. We did not do this enough today.

Cook: It Can Only Be a Great Thing For the Football Club
at 16:04:40

This idea is a genius one, not just the concept, but the way the offer spans the Xmas and New Year period.

I hope every Town fan near and far will do their bit and take advantage of this offer. It would be great to get as close as possible to selling out for these three games.

Should be three cracking atmospheres, all six pointers, against three top teams.

All I can say is thank you for your efforts on the pitch and your goals. You always put in 100% effort, unlike a lot of other players did last season.

Hopefully, you can get yourself properly fit and have a good couple of seasons somewhere else, just don't score against us!

Ashton: Cobbold Stand Has a Lifespan

Please make sure acoustics and safe standing sections are high up the list of things to consider.

But yes, what Bolton and Reading have done seems to make sense, what do their stadium finances look like is the question I guess?

Cook: Our Fans Were With Us When We Most Needed Them
at 17:29:06

Eddie1985 you are missing the point. It is not JUST Paul Cook's job to get us promoted, EVERYONE has to play their part. The supporters, the players, the physio's, the recruitment, the coaches, the manager (of course), the CEO, the Chairman, Peter Reid, the owners, and this Schulz chap who I hope will be very happy at how the project is going, and the overall positivity at the club right now.

Sunderland away, Wigan away, we ARE needed, make no mistake about it. We need to take what we had at Portsmouth and Wycombe to those two grounds as well. Cancel your weddings, cancel the birthday parties, postpone the christenings, this is the moment we have been waiting for, the tide has turned.

Well done Paul cook and the players, outstanding. we would have had six points from the top two away from home had we not picked up those late Injury’s.

You saw the support in the away end last night, that’s what you have behind you, don’t read any other nonsense.

Coulson: It Wasn't Good Enough

Straight talking, no nonsense. People can moan about our current league position, but no-one in the management or squad is happy with that position, it is quite clear. We have a team of winners now, and Hayden can play a major part on moving us up the league. Quality player, imo same level as Cresswell and Mings.
