He is meant to be attracting top clubs and not signing a pro deal with us. Now we're in League 1 would this guy be good enough to start for the first team if he were to sign a deal?
I know he's young, but if he's being tipped for moves to Champion league clubs I'd imagine he is good enough to play League 1 level at 18, but I have never seen him to know?
|Where do we have to finish next season for you to be happy?|
at 15:31 18 May 2019
Everybody has there own opinion for next season of what would be a good season. When we get to the end of next season where will we need to finish for you to say “that was a good season”?
Personally top 6 for me. Anything less I would class as a failure, but in my mind I want top 2.
What’s your outlook?
|What players have we released / sold / Lost a while ago who weren't deemed |
at 15:26 13 May 2019
good enough or had a better replacement coming in that are now in the same if not better leagues than us? I'm talking over 3+ years ago, not last summer, we all know what happened last summer.
I can think of these but let me know who else:
Clarke, Rhodes, Marriott, Hourihane.
|Season ticket help|
at 12:48 17 Apr 2019
Quick question. I keep seeing about if you “Renew” your season ticket the price will be £333 for lower tier sections. But I can’t see if you didn’t have one last season but want one this season prices..
Or are they using the word renew but meaning everybody?
|Went to Hertha Berlin VS Fortuna Dusseldorf on Saturday|
at 10:04 9 Apr 2019
What an atmosphere both sets of fans create but Fortuna were on another level. They literally do not stop singling, clapping and jumping all game long. You can see the players absolutely love it and as soon as the final whistle went they stood side by side with arms around each other in front of the Fortuna fans singing the same song and jumping in sink with the fans. Absolutely brilliant!
Fortuna won 2.1 and played very good counter attacking football with a little guy up top with a magic left foot called Benito Raman. Goalkeeper made an amazing save in the style of David Seaman against Sheffield United in the FA cup years ago.
Would love to play them in preseason, although they would be a class above our players currently!
|All players being fit and here at the same time|
at 11:22 2 Apr 2019
What would be your starting line up be from the players used this season. Doesn't matter if they weren't here at the same time, or have been injured or have too many loan. If they've made an appearance for the first team they can be used, just for a bit of fun.
Mine would look something like this:
For whats it's worth my bench (7 max) would be:
|Jon Walters retired!|
at 15:53 22 Mar 2019
Just seen on Jon Walters Instagram he’s retired from football! Great player for us and a real shame an injury with us was his last contribution on the pitch.
|League 1 promotion at first attempt|
at 12:16 7 Mar 2019
I've seen many people who believe this relegation is the start of a long stay in league 1, but when I look through our squad it actually gives me confidence we could bounce straight back.
Emmanuel - Won promotion and young player of the year at Rotherham last season.
Chambers - If stays is clearly a natural leader, some performances may have dropped but we're also dropping a league to a lesser standard.
Woolfeden - Having a very good season at Swindon this season and will hopefully be ready to slot in.
Dozzell - Managers have discussed about his strength in the Championship, if we don't give him games in league 1 I'd be very surprised as he's clearly talented.
Bishop - If he can stay fit he would easily be one of the better players in league 1.
Judge - If we manage to keep him he will also be one of the better players in league 1.
Huws - If by some magic we can get him fit for next season he would be one of the better players in league 1.
Edwards - Brilliant player early in the season, had a dip in form and an injury but now looking back to his best. Also knows league 1 and has done very well previously.
Downes - Had rave reviews on loan in league 1 with Luton last season and become a regular for us this season.
Harrison - Injuries haven't helped but I have liked what I've seen when he's fully fit. League 1 may be his level to shine.
Jackson - Personally don't rate the guy, always seems offside and although people talk of his pace I just don't think he looks that pacey in the championship. League 1 which he skipped may well be his level.
Obviously these are all my own opinion and I haven't mentioned every single player we own, but I think we have a real good core of a team here with the youngsters coming through. All depending on being fit/staying etc. But this is where Evans needs to choose if league 1 is where we're staying, or if a return to the championship is a must!
at 14:59 6 Mar 2019
Against all the odds we win 80% of our remaining fixtures, the other 20% a combination of draws and loses. We survive relegation and stay in the Championship with a summer to build on the good end of season form. Bart is back on top form, Harrison is scoring goals like there is no tomorrow, Judge signs a new 2/3 year deal and Chambers has given his 8th fist pump in a row!
Next season we go on to win the league like Leicester when they won the Premier League.
We're back in the promise land and this was all scare we look back on and laugh about!
|Brexit / Currency people |
at 09:29 4 Mar 2019
I need to change up some money into euros for a trip away in April. Does it matter when I change up my money or is there literally going to be no difference if I were to get them now instead of the start of April?
|Any Berlin advice|
at 11:32 3 Mar 2019
In April me and 6 mates are off to Berlin for a lads weekend and have only arranged a couple of bits to do as most of it will be drinking.
So far we’ve got tickets to the Hertha Berlin vs Fortuna game and also booked to go to Hofbrau for some Oktoberfest style food and drink.
Any Berlin based or people previously been Berlin able to recommend any activities or places to go/drink?
We’re staying in Hackesher Markt and aren’t into museums/site seeing etc.
Cheers in advance

|People losing faith in Paul Lambert|
at 11:51 11 Feb 2019
I'm just unsure how people are losing faith in a guy that took over an awful team that had been ripped apart by Hurst and Evans. When he took over most people were saying they won't judge him this season or some even said until hes had 2 or 3 transfer windows etc.
The amount of times I've heard people say we don't play the 'Ipswich way' anymore and we shouldn't be playing hoof ball. Yet Lambert introduces a style where we pass it out from the back and as soon as we do it the fans start moaning.
Yes we are lacking up front but who else could Lambert have got in that would be better than we've managed to get or already have? He said himself they spoke to players who weren't up for the fight so they move on and Evans is never going to pump millions in to attract a striker when we could end up in league 1.
If by some miracle we stay up this season or if the more than likely happens and we go down to League 1. I'm not judging him until he's had a full preseason, all loans have gone back, all out of contract players are gone or resigned and hes had the same amount of time as Paul Hurst had in this season.
I didn't expect, as much as I wanted him too, for him to be able to turn this side around and keep us up with our financial issues and league position.
Paul Lambert is a blue!
|Would you play Knudsen on Sunday?|
at 08:47 6 Feb 2019
I personally do not like Knudsen, I get others do but the way the guy has conducted himself with comments about McCarthy leaving, the contract situation etc I just can't change my mind on him.
HOWEVER, as happy as I was to see us bring in a left back and also give Kenlock a chance, I do very much feel as a left back he is currently the best at the club. Personally I think if we have any chance on Sunday as well as any chance of staying in this league, we have to play our strongest line up, meaning I would put Knudsen straight back in.
|Can't wait for Norwich this Sunday!|
at 11:33 4 Feb 2019
So we go to Norwich this Sunday with a sold out allocation as always, few beers on the way up to counter the no alcohol in the stadium stuff, everybody singing how bobby conquered Europe and we get behind our team.
Stranger things have happened than Ipswich beating Norwich. Wimbledon look as if they could be relegated from League 1 but beat West Ham a few weeks ago. I know people will say 'But its the hope that kills you'. Well it's not in my opinion, it's the hope that keeps me going and makes me never give up.
Come at me morbid people.

|Everything is against us|
at 11:25 28 Jan 2019
Does anybody feel that this season was never going to go our way and our luck just won't change? I get the phrase 'You make your own luck', but I can't remember a season where so much has just not gone our way. I also understand we simply haven't been good enough, but every team gets that luck once in a while.
We've had a few spot kicks against us this season and I'd never blame a goalkeeper for not saving one as it's pot luck, but when are we going to save one, or them even miss the target?
Refereeing decisions this season have been awful, I do understand it's not every game, but when they happen they're crucial. Nsiala's red card, Villa pen and many more. When are we going to get that decision out of nowhere like others manage to get against us?
Injuries happen to all clubs but with Ipswich this seems to happen to any player that shows they might be able to help get us out of this mess!
Maybe I'm just on a massive downer today as I've been positive all season, but I feel the Sheffield Wednesday game is my last chance at keeping the hope. Lose or draw that game and I fully believe there will be no coming back.
|Who are you?|
at 13:47 25 Jan 2019
Basically, you lot are a bunch of random blokes/ladies on the internet who all share the same love for Ipswich Town that I do. But I quite often wonder who I'm talking to when writing or replying to comments just out of pure interest.
Nobody has to respond, but if you're willing too then feel free to follow suit.

at 12:06 15 Jan 2019
How often does Norwich away make the sale of Silver members? I might as well have got a season ticket this season but didn't as my daughter was born, but have been to all but 2 home games anyway! Therefore I got a silver membership at the start of the season to still give me a chance but I just can't see it making it that far!
