A lot of people picking up on Lapado's 'attitude'.
at 12:25 31 May 2022

I think 'ego' / 'confidence' is a fine line for sure, but you want your striker to be fairly confident in themselves. Scoring goals is all about confidence.

His comment about 'bringing a winning mentality' - well it might upset a few but let's have this right, we finished 11th last season, and we could have gone on a winning run into the play offs, we didn't. So he is right, that we do need a winning mentality. If he calls that out, I am fine with it.

Wigan want Sam Morsy back - Alan Nixon

regardless of whether it is true or not, it is just painfully annoying that such a small tinpot club like Wigan can even be linked to taking one of our players.

Nice of them to give a multi zillion dollar American company a bit of promotion.

Norwich’s LB sticking his finger up to the club, literally?
at 22:04 8 May 2022

I looked at this a few months back

There is a connection with McKenna but Den Tag may use him

If he is that highly rated I doubt he would drop to league one

But here’s hoping

ALL THE GOALS: Macauley Bonne
at 19:44 4 May 2022

I hope he returns too, he is blue, through and through. Can't help but think he is going to do a Will Keane on us if he goes elsewhere. Question is, why did the goals dry up, needs to work on his psychology (as well as maybe offside positioning), both solvable though you would have thought.

Just pulled the trigger on 2x season tickets
at 20:25 3 May 2022

I am close to M25 / M40 junction and have got my first season ticket for a while too. Happy to lift share from here - round the top of the M25 down the A12 .....

Can we now all agree

I am not saying the first half of the season was better, but what McKenna now knows about this squad of players, Paul Cook already knew in December.

you can’t compare apples with pears. The squad was still being assembled right up until the start of October.

That sacking Paul cook has NOT worked out and in future we should give our managers a minimum of 2 transfer windows unless we are clearly bottom three

I am quite sure he would have got us top six as his style of play, when executed consistently would result in top two form

Are there any serious supporters
at 08:08 17 Apr 2022

I think we will definitely be in the top six.

Would be interested to better understand why Rotherham, mk dons and Wigan have been so effective at accruing points

What do they do differently? Why did Rotherham beat us yesterday?

If we can be as effective as these teams then we could make top two.

We seem to have consistency now, but will this playing style yield enough goals?

Lots of OTT reaction to the last couple of results.

If they take a metrics based view on our entire front line,

Celina, Chaplin, Burns, Aluko, Bonne, Piggot, Jackson and Norwood.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/teams/ipswich-town/top-scorers

Impact per game (Lower score better)

**************************************

Burns 17 / 36 = 2.1 games
Celina 11 / 29 = 2.6 games
Norwood 8 / 21 = 2.625 games
Jackson 6 / 16 = 2.66
Bonne 15 / 42 = 2.8 games

**************************************

Chaplin 10 / 39 = 3.9 games

**************************************

Aluko 3 / 34 = 11.3 games
Piggot 2 / 23 = 11.5 games

Let’s be clear Wycombe d!cked Cambridge away and parrot scored a quality..

On point number 1:

9 Ipswich Town

You see that number nine there, that suggests we are in exactly the same position as when Cook was sacked (unless I am mistaken on that?).

Point 2 was an opinion, but a fairly well informed one, having seen the entire promotion winning season home and away, I have seen what a top two side looks like. I would suggest we are not one, and the closest I have seen us look like one was at Wycombe and Portsmouth. Bu of course the consistency was not there.

I do think McKenna is perfectly capable of achieving a top two side, and there have been elements of our play which suggests we will get there next year. But the reality is, we are not there yet, and if we were, we would have put away Cambridge at home, and we would not have conceded late at Oxford. Top two sides don't do those things.

What a rude individual you are!

"You don’t seem to have a clue what facts are"

and

"you don’t seem to understand football either"

what on earth qualifies you as the expert round here?

On point one, I am not saying McKenna 'should' have done better, I think he has done ok, but I am just pointing out that we haven't made up ground.

On point two, game is all about finishing, and this was not addressed in January transfer window. Our other issue was left back, and that has not really been addressed either, I would have preferred Penney, as he has a great delivery. No doubt a reason why our threat down the left hand side dried up in the 2nd half of the season.

Just balancing out the 'its all Cook's fault' rhetoric.
