Player availability
at 19:38 26 Nov 2021

Why is Paul Cook so coy on player availability when everyone knows his system!

He might as well announce the team 3 weeks prior !

January key signing - Paul Cook assistant coach
at 19:35 26 Nov 2021

Paul Cook assistant coach who can contribute ideas could greatly help Paul and club.
Lambert results declined without his key #2 as did even the great Bryan Clough.
The only thing different with Paul Cook past and present is his missing #2 and perhaps this is the answer many are overlooking !

If Paul Cook was sacked in Nov 21 then our season would be over
at 16:18 24 Nov 2021

Fine margins sport and if we had won at Sunderland everyone would be heaping praise on Cook.

Aluko and Burns being out of team didn’t help last night

Cook should have played Burgess and Edward’s.

If Paul Cook was sacked in Nov 21 then our season would be over
at 14:06 24 Nov 2021

Paul Cook sacked in Nov 21 after club owners financial investment in 19 players and assembly of large off field staff after 18 games and 1 transfer window ? We would be laughing stock of the league.

And all these players who dropped down leagues to play for Mr Paul Cook would be happy to play for a new manager when they know Paul Cook wasn’t given long enough and fans went against him?

None of this talk warrants any time at all at this point. We need to support Paul Cook and give him more time even if we don’t go up this year. We can’t fix years of neglect in 5 minutes without stability. We need some patience….. and new owners should not be pressured by the fans to make decisions for the club that long term are the wrong decisions.

Everyone needs to calm down and give this project more time.

Imagine 78 cup final without Osborne goal
at 17:05 20 Nov 2021

Completely dominated the possession, tempo and created some good chances
But it was like the 78 cup final without Osborne goal. Celina missed 3 good chances and Walton made key error of coming for a ball that he didn’t win. The 2nd was a joke ref call but ITFC looked beaten anyway after not winning a game they so clearly dominated.

We said that these 5 games will show us where we are
at 18:15 30 Oct 2021

Plymouth were there for the taking and for long periods Ipswich dominated

We missed a hatful of greater chances with Harper, Edward’s, Penny and Bonne all missing in great positions.

Celina looked great when he came on.

Edmunson was great throughout

Carroll

Carroll absolutely bossed first half and controlled games tempo
Nice to see us pass forward.

Celina made a real difference at #10 also.

Did more in a half in that role than anyone has done all season

Definitely one of his better games

Burgess’s was very good also

Carroll made a big difference in the middle. Controlled games tempo and passes forward

How did Hladky play today
at 17:06 18 Sep 2021

Didn’t have a lot to do as our defense played well

But his kicking was very good and he dealt with some low long shots very well

He is get caught out once with a lob that didn’t look great

But overall the defense looked happy to have him back

Wimbledon Hype
at 18:12 28 Aug 2021

Wimbledon worst team we have played. They struggled to pass throughout the game and it took 28 minutes for them to contribute to the game. If we had a better goal keeper today we would have won comfortably

Harper and Evans
at 18:10 28 Aug 2021

They look like they are running are running out of steam after 60 minutes

Fraser is a luxury player who unfortunately today didn’t contribute enough

positives / weakness continue
at 18:01 28 Aug 2021

Positives ;
Goal scored and attacking play is real plus under Cook (easy on eye)
Great support and we’ll attended games…
Some of the new signings are clearly player upgrades on past.

Weakness ;
Injuries are like weekly buses (player unavailability is incredible)
Central Midfield disappear at 60 minute mark every game. (Is high press leaving them exposed?)
Risky passing in front of our goal continues. (Is high press leaving us exposed)
Keeper now looks backward step. Dropped Holy is arguably better…. Recruitment still needed.
Refs seem anti Ipswich (bizarre free kick decision for first goal, 6 minutes add ??)

5 minutes to go we removed 2 defenders. Given results was this a good choice ? I know Coulson had cramp but for 5 minutes could he have stayed to secure points ?
Evans and Harper struggling yet Cook ignores this as pressure on defensive mounts.

Tactically Cook got it right last week and was unlucky not to get his win.
But today his decisions were as twitchy as the team in front of him.

Last Season Paul Cook said...
at 05:36 27 Aug 2021

Rangers fans refer to him as a man mountain and we’re sad to see him go
He had fallen out Gerard over a COVID breach and things between them were so bad he couldn’t wait to get out. I think his departure from Rangers had little to do with football and we beat many other clubs to his signature.

Wolf

Wolf first half display was as good as he has played recently

2nd half he made the error and panicked giving away a needless free kick

Very harsh to say he was at fault for a goal when MK Dons free kick was very good

I think Tom Caroll staked his claim for a starting place
at 20:49 21 Aug 2021

Harper played well today. Evans didn't play as well. But I don’t think either are playing poorly.
I don’t think either are suited to playing anchor defensive role. Evans is playing supporting role following Cook instructions

It was nice to see him asking for the ball and pointing to players to where he wanted it.

A good communicator also to others. He users his arms a lot to direct play.

Has played with No fear - I want the ball attitude !
