  1. Does anyone know if you pay on the gate for the Ipswich match tomorrow night?
  2. Just got 4 tickets by phone - just kept ringing 0871 900 1867 and eventually got through
  3. Since last Sunday we've played 2, Utd 3 and we've gained a point on them - I'd certainly have taken that 1pm on Sunday.......no brainer really
  4. Couldn't agree more. This is a very poor league, to get out of it you don't have to be a great team - an average team with one or maybe two talented players is all you need to be. Before January that's what we were - now we're just an average team who will make the play offs but almost certainly get no further.The answer is quite simple and doesn't involve discovering the South Yorkshire Messi or going tens of millions of pounds into debt.
  5. Ten minutes to stitch the worse cut he's seen in 17 years - either he's f*****g quick or he's not seen many cuts!!
  6. I don't think many clubs are going to get out of the Championship (the right way) with a player budget of £6m pa (I'm sure at this point someone will remind me that Chiping Ongar FC have won the Champions League for the last 3 years paying their players with washers and empty crisp packets). Our problem isn't that we can't finance our debt (although that may change if our revenue falls and interest rates go up) - its that we can't attract new investment because no one is going to put £25m into a team that has no prospect of Premiership football. Without investment we won't be able to get a squad capable of challenging for promotion - its a circular argument
  7. I for one was bloody glad it was him that put the ball down on the spot in Cardiff in 2005
  8. You may be right - however basically same team finished mid-table last season. So were they over-performing then or under-performing now? I daresay the truth is somewhere in between.
  9. Fair point..........font size a bit OTT though?
  10. Exactlly chaferswfc - there's nothing wrong with the players. Ok they aren't world beaters but they certainly aren't sh*te like a number of posters on here would suggest. I have several Ipswich friends from down here and they feel Miller was a descent championship player - especially going forwards.
  11. When AI comes to pick the team for Saturday he may well be thinking - "What a bunch of ............." However he might be thinking: Grant - top 5 Championship 'keeper Simek - ex fringe international coming back to form/fitness Buxton - not a bad centre-half Purse - solid/experienced championship player Beevers - a season ago being tipped as future England player Hinds - good squad player Spurr - last season was highly rated up and coming prospect JJ - very talented/erratic - how do I capitalise on the former JOC - descent centre midfield workhorse Potter - can I get him to venture over the half-way line? McAllister - see JOC Soares - 2 seasons ago up and coming prospect Esajas - see JJ Gray - very experienced ex-premiership player.............hold on though isn't he a L back????? Tudgay - one of best players in Championship last season Sodje - big centre foreward - my type of striker Clarke - see Sodje Jeffers - end of contract in summer thank................ but hold on......didn't he get 13 goals in 16 England U-21 appearances!!? "So how come this squad is 23rd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????????????? And by the way who's got the no.6 shirt??"
