same old story every match. We dominate possession but fail to create clear cut chances. When we do create chances we dont take enough of them. Whilst defensively we are far too easy to score against, looking vulnerable to every punt down field, players make individual errors weekly and there seems to be a lack of leadership on pitch, bench & boardroom. This club could go either way right now and despite the soundbites eminating from club, to the outsider we look a good bet to really struggle this year. Its vital we turn this round now or a relegation battle will enshew and I really doubt whether those that matter at club have the strength to survive that.

All I need now is for someone to tell me that Jordan Rhodes scored a hat-trick today....

I think the next 5 games will be vital to our season, yes we played well and there are some positives to be had, sadly no points though!
The point has been made about new players and it will take time. I don't like the idea of frequently changing managers but even I'm getting fed up with the PJ excuses show.
Is he the man for the job?? Jury is still out for me!!!

Thanks cbower for your very comprehensive report. I always have a much better understanding about what happened when I read your reports.
Seems to me that while we made chances they were mainly only half chances rather than killer balls and it seems like we still lack that steel to win balls at both ends including nine corners with no end result. We also give the ball away too much and need a leader out there to gee the boys up...especially after conceding a goal.

First time on here, I went to the game yesterday and most of you on here have to realise we are not a top team anymore and players do not want to come and play for Ipswich. All the defenders linked do not come(we are getting desperate for two new ones), midfielders well we only seem to sign these. Strikers plenty Austin, sharp, fuller,bothroyd,look where they are now, and plenty more, go elsewhere why, because we are not the club we used to be. The players we have got well, loach so far ok, cresswell getting worse, Edwards very good no one seems to get passed him, smith and chambers are not commanding at all,very poor, come back mcauley. N'daw what was he doing in midfield, why drop luongo should of played, drury well he tries, Taylor he looks very good don't know how we got him! Murphy won headers but gave nothing else should of played jet. That leaves Martin and chopra, Martin plays very well in the roll behind chopra, but chopra definitely needs someone tall to feed off,he is only small and is not going to win anything in the air. Murphy up front with him perhaps? We have to play with two strikers up front you can't expect chopra to get 20 goals on his own that is not going to happen because our midfielders don't support him quick enough and when was the last time one of our midfielders scored 10 goals in a season. Finally jewell is not good but perhaps nobody else would come!

Thank you cbower for you report, I can't contribute about the game as I only listened to Ipswich Player...but we had numerous corners that came to nothing...coaching staff get this sorted...perhaps a phone call to Tony Pulis required? The number of times we give a goal away after an attack is rebuffed? We are in real need of a CAPTAIN who can demand an extra 10% from the team, who can read the game even if he is not the best player. Mogga was a good example?
