Lack of fitness is a big part of the problem
at 16:56 17 Apr 2021

Cook has mentioned it. Gary Roberts has mentioned it. It's probably why we can only play well for half a match (apparently we were excellent for the first 20 minutes today). It's probably why we have had so many injuries. What I find difficult to understand is how everybody at the club (owner, directors, manager, coaches AND players) allowed lack of fitness to become a problem. Surely the ability to run hard for a whole match 2 or 3 times per week should be a fundamental, an absolute basic.

It does explain a lot, if a player feels he cannot last a whole match it will impact his confidence and lead him to hide and to take 'breathers'. A team of players that are at peak fitness and have a little talent will always be confident of giving any team a match.

Now that Cook and Roberts have identified fitness as an issue, I'm not sure what can be done this season but it does mean the whole squad should be on notice to keep themselves fit over the summer break and to expect the most demanding pre-season training they've ever experienced.

Best XI from current and ex-Ipswich players still playing
at 21:29 5 Dec 2019

Prompted by Adam Webster scoring this evening, here's my stab at best XI if allowed to select current and ex-Ipswich players (not loanees) still playing. A "what we could have had" team:-

Nick Pope (Burnley)

Vincent-Young (ITFC)---Mings-(AV)---Webster (BHA)---Cresswell (WHU)

Hourihane (AV)---Skuse (ITFC)---Flynn Downes (ITFC)


McGoldrick (SHU)---Keiffer Moore (Wigan)----Waghorn (Derby)

Seems a bit light in midfield. I must have missed out one or two. Not sure whether Jack Marriott should be ahead of Keiffer Moore- Moore gets the nod cos he's scored a couple for Wales.

Defensively this team is Premier League- overall it could be Championship play-off standard. What would be your XI?

Team I'd Like to See Today
at 13:05 18 Aug 2018

Bart

Donacien-Chambers-Toto-Knudsen

Chalobah

Jackson-Edun-Nolan-Edwards

Harrison

Understandably, I suspect Hurst might go a bit safer and pick Skuse ahead of Edun

ITFC team- 2019
at 15:08 16 Aug 2018

We could have this young team (with no loan players)

Bart

Donacien Woolfenden Nsiala Nydam

Edwards Dozzell Huws Nolan Bishop

Jackson or Harrison

Aoart from Nart- oldest players Nolan and Nsiala (2y?)

All good footballers with lots of pace and running power. I know Nydam at left-back is controversial- but I could see him developing into a good wing-back

Hurst's Anger was directed mainly at Chambers
at 11:49 16 Aug 2018

It's only logical. The vast majority of the team were newcomers and youngsters. Hurst would have expected his captain and most senior player to step up to the plate. When Hurst said he asked for explanations in the dressing room and got nothing- who would you expect to speak up- the number one candidate has to be Chambers. He might have expected Knusden or Sears (the other experienced outfield pros) to also pipe up but Chambers should have had the most to contribute. I wasn't there but based on the radio commentary and reports- Chamber's and Knusden's contributions were poor and, at times, careless.

When we eventually get a new centre-half, I expect Chambers will be on his way out- gone in the next transfer window. Unless Knusden improves he will also be sold.

Parallels Between Southgate's England Project and Hurst's Ipswich Project
at 13:31 9 Aug 2018

- Young Managers
- Unproven at this level
- Succeeded dinosaurs
- Teams have under performed for many years
- Teams previously lacking confidence, playing sterile football
- Clean slate for all players- reputations count for naught
- Emphasis on positive attacking football
- Players asked to enjoy their football and play without fear
- Trust young, unproven players
- Open style with press and supporters

I believe that Hurst will be just as successful as Southgate
