New manager. Same old Ipswich. I'm off to cry myself to sleep.

This is all Jewell's chickens coming home to roost! His failure to get to grips with the defence and to get a balanced squad is now so apparent. MMc has a hard job until the window opens again but even then it's looking like a delegation battle all the way to end of season.

Seems as if the 'loans' were committed to one good performance at the weekend - we couldn't expect another obviously.
Shows the magnitude of problems at the Club - it needs rebuilding from ground level. The only solution for any Manager I'm afraid - midnight oil will have to be burned Mick McCarthy, otherwise you will have the same old problems as your predecessor.

A chastening result that feels no better 24 hours later. In the first half it was an even match, we had more of the play whilst creating nothing and Palace looked a lot more threatening. In typical ITFC we gifted them a goal due to a howler from Chambers but by half-time were still in the game.
Second half though was a different story, pretty much every Town player was poor and Palace had everything we didn't have, pace, power, confidence and organisation. 3 penalties in just over 10 mins is unheard of, from my view each seemed a little a soft and not many referees would have given all 3 in 1 match, however you could see why each was given. The timing of these took the stuffing right out of the players and we soon conceded a fourth due to more poor defending.
The fifth was quite clearly offside but the manner of it showed the void between the 2 sides which was worrying to say the least.
McCarthy's hands are somewhat tied until Jan and its a tough job to instil some belief, confidence and organisation into our current ragbag of loanees, journeymen and freebies. ME must back him then in the window, I just hope we aren't too far adrift by then.
A win Saturday is vital, if we dont, I really think we could be going down
