I'd imagine they won't know fully until tomorrow. From initially watching I think its more likely to be shorter. He seemed to hurt himself, then put a tackle in, tried to play and later walked off.

 

I'd be more concerned if he'd just pulled up.

Right on the nose with your comments Starbuy. What has happened to our midfield closing players down, has the pressure been put on the players by the coaching staff to try and create more clear cut chances leading to Clayton and Leadbitter having to change their usual positions, certainly they have not been as effective of late.

 

I think they are playing more 442 with the 2 CMs sitting further forward. It suited a Forshaw more than the other two.

I feel a lot of people are being a little too over critical about todays match. Okay i watched it in the pub as opposed to actually being at the match, but once we had scored the second goal, i felt comfortable. I wasnt in any doubt that we were gonna lose it from that point, ipswich may have had half chances, more shots and more possession, but i dont think we looked like conceding from that point. Its rare for me to not feel on edge watching the boro, but i didnt today.

 

Sure we conceded a shoddy goal right after our first, but despite the stats, bamford could have had another 2 and we should have had 2 penalties! Pretty good performance from after the half hour mark. Although i do wish we wouldnt hoof it as much.

I try to ignore shot statistics I think a fairer measure of the game is how many saves did a keeper have to work to save? For all the huffing and puffing by Ipswich Dimi didn't have a lot to do.

 

In many ways Ipswich performance today is similar to how we've been playing.

Vossen did well today, He worked hes socks of and set up Bamfords first goal with a brilliant pass..

 

First half he struggled just like the rest of our players apart from Adomah who was brilliant all game.

Second half he was getting in to the game more but then he was subbed but that substitution worked out brilliantly.

 

Imo we must keep Vossen just off of Bamford, Adomah right and Reach/ Wildscut/ Carayol left.

 

Totally agree with all of this!

Despite all of the criticism directed at reach I think he still gives us a great deal.

 

1) balance: a proper balance with players in correct position (Adomah right) giving out team alot better shape

 

2) defensive cover: despite not being the best going forward he always tracks back

 

3) 2nd outlet: like albert, reach isn't afraid to chase a long cross field ball to relieve pressure and build a possible attack

 

For all the negatives people are giving today we still scored 4 past a fellow promotion contender. I'd play the same team every week from now on bar injuries/suspensions.

I'd tend to agree with this. I do think his runs behind the defence have been good and may have potentially got a penalty today after one of them. Although he does frustrate me he clearly has the ability to get past his man as he has proven it yet he has somewhat lost belief in doing so.

Reach is a strange player, he's almost better without the ball than he is with it. Could have won us two penalties today with his runs off the ball and just by staying wide he stretches opponents, however, give him the ball and he'll invariably fall over or give away possession.

    • well the forest win ,which offerered a crumb of light in the darkness has been well and truly been put into the background. im totally fed up with feeling fed up come saturday tea time. hand on heart ive only once before been so dismayed by our state of affairs and that wasnt pre liquidation weeks, one of the historians on here might put me clear when eactly but im guessing around  2000 ish we lost about 4 home games in a row conceding 4 goals most of those and things for me came to a head after the 4-1 |(i think) home loss to newcastle and thats when i relenquished my season ticket. im sick to the teeth of our lack of attacking intent and lack of any guile around the oposition box, im done with negative tactical managers / inept managers, and ive grown suspicious of gibsons love for his club and his seperation from the fan base. i still hold the faint hope that things go in circles and some turn of events will re-energise our team and in turn bring back the belief of our future for the fans. 
    • Agree 100%. Not sure why folk are still talking about Gibbo ‘wising up’, it’s all about what Scott thinks now. My feeling is he will allow Warnock to do what he likes as long as we are winning games and threatening the play-offs. Otherwise I think there will be some very candid conversations about what the vision is for the first team. I just can’t see Scott treating this season as a bedding in period where he’s just getting his feet under the table. He has a job to do, it’s his first DofF appointment, and if he isn’t on top of every detail already I would be staggered! My prediction is that he will (rightly) begin to exert influence over tactics and playing style and Warnock will decide to walk rather than be told what to do. 
    • Even pulis had a plan, was maybe the most basic thing ever but it worked, get the ball to Adama everytime as quick as possible. Yeah we don’t have anyone as good as him anymore but at least we used him to his fullest.
    • I don't think I've ever seen a thread on here go in two different directions as spectacularly as this last page. From rest in peace to wrestling pythons in two posts.
