Fortuna Dusseldorf home shirt is rather nice. I like a pinstripe.

Has anyone received their Shrewsbury tickets yet?

Apologies if already discussed.
But I've just remembered I ordered my Shrewsbury tickets last week and haven't received them yet. Anyone else got theirs?
Thanks

Lincoln home game selling well

I might have missed this but the Lincoln home game seems to be selling well.

Was there a ticket promotion for that game? Apologies if already discussed.

Fortuna Dusseldorf

Sadly our friends at Fortuna Dusseldorf are having a rough season.
Third bottom now and in the relegation playoff zone, three points off safety.
Just changed their manager but heading in the same direction as us into the third tier.
I don’t think people expected them to be promotion favourites with Schalke, Werder Bremen and Hamburg in that division but they were tipped for the top six.
Hopefully they can turn it around as it’s a great club to visit and a top city.

If the choice was Cook or Harris, I doubt we’d have had a discussion…
at 13:43 12 Dec 2021

I imagine most on here would have stuck with Cook if they felt his successor was Neil Harris.
Fair comment or not?

The Ipswich Cycle is back again…

Blame the manager
Blame the players
Eventually we’ll blame the owners
And then we’ll go round and round again.

I was not convinced by Cook and in all likelihood I think we would have lost tonight with him in charge.
But I don’t think it would have been as shambolic and I was surprised we pulled the trigger when we did.
It may well prove the right decision, Cook’s record was very average, but I suspect it will condemn us to another season in League One.
The names being mentioned are very underwhelming. I just hope the owners had someone in mind otherwise it makes absolutely no sense.

Scared of Morecambe, Cheltenham and now AFC Wimbledon
at 21:53 28 Aug 2021

I hope those who thought a season in League One would be good for us now appreciate how far this club has fallen.
I readily accept the team is still gelling but it’s embarrassing seeing this side scared stiff of very average opposition.
Sheff Utd spent six years in this division, the last 2 and a bit seasons haven’t exactly provided us with any evidence to suggest we won’t do the same.
You can make excuses or dress it up how you like but today we didn’t play particularly well (maybe for 20 or so minutes) and there are definite question marks over some of the signings and the manager himself.
My rational side says keep faith with Cook and, to be fair, the substitutions were mainly forced upon him today (although why Dobra is going out on loan to accommodate Aluko is beyond me).
But when you’ve been an Ipswich fan for 40 years, witnessed the highs and endured plenty of lows, it sticks in the throat to see us petrified of the sort of opposition we’ve played this month.
And to think I used to believe the John Duncan era was our lowest point.

Subs last night
at 11:52 18 Aug 2021

Why did it take Cook so long to make his subs last night?
It was clear to anyone in the ground that we’d run out of steam by 55 minutes.
Edwards was cooked, Fraser fairly ineffective. In the first half, we moved the ball around the back but always with the intention of eventually finding that gap and forward pass.
In the second half it was just a string of sideways passing and no impetus.
Clearly Cheltenham had reorganised so you have to give them some credit but for the first 15 minutes of that second half we were sleepwalking towards an equaliser.
And yet Cook did nothing and still did nothing after they scored. And then he sent on Jackson.
I’m not calling for Cook’s head, that would be crazy and his track record at other clubs suggests he is more than capable of getting it right.
But his track record at our club is woeful. 4 wins in 20 is dreadful and no excuses can paper over that.
When he arrived, a lot on this forum suggested any manager worth his salt could get a tune out of those players but he didn’t. Too be fair, I never thought the players, particularly our youngsters, were as good as many thought.
But this current crop of players is fairly talented. Yes they need to time to gel and yes some lack fitness but that’s why you use your subs.
You could forgive him for looking at our bench last season and thinking I’ll stick with what I have.
But not last night. Carroll, Vincent-Young, Dobra, Barrie, Coulson. Decent players.
You can blame Bonne for his miss last night but Cook’s game management in the second half was the reason we lost that game.

Ticket Priority Sales Dates
at 22:09 30 Jul 2021

Might be me being daft but I can’t find anything on the ticket website which says when the priority sales dates are for tickets.
As I live miles away, I do a mixture of home and away games as a silver club member.
So It was always handy knowing when they were going on sale.
Has anyone seen them on the website??
