  1. Have any credible sources confirmed this as true? I have no idea who the Twitter reporter is who has been mentioned, he doesn’t appear to have many followers. Nixon not said anything on the subject. Really hope it’s true, but not getting my hopes up.
  2. Yes Theo is unreal, but having Luongo and Windass to play along side him was the difference for me. Darren, please manage these players, and wrap them in cotton wool as you alluded to after game!
  3. Luongo Windass Dunkley If these players remain fit and play most games this season, we will get promoted IMO. Big shout out to Dunkley in particular, he has really began to show what he’s about recently. A leader, and such a threat in the air. Big worry if we lose him before January as cover at CB isn’t great at the moment.
  4. Moore explained reasons for this in past. Lad wasn’t up to speed at first, and was sick.
  5. Isn’t it just! and let’s not ignore the fact that MK Dons were on a great run too. They are no mugs. Moore now starting to show what he can do.
  6. For people saying that Moore isn’t an attacking manager, just look at them stats
  7. Is that the Wigan which we beat away from home?
  8. I don’t understand why people are certain Moore is a nice guy all the time because of how he comes across to the press. It means absolutely nothing to me. I’m pretty sure Moore isn’t speaking to his players in the same way he speaks to the press if they are underperforming. I heard a very different tone to Moore’s voice when we drew to Wimbledon. He sounded really pissed off to me. Sounded like he was livid that the players threw away a 2-0 lead. First time I’ve heard him like that, so I don’t think he’s as nice as people seem to make out.
  9. Our players can’t score for toffee at the moment We were much better second half, but yet again cannot turn a defeat around into a win.
  10. Started that first half so poorly, grew into the game more after such an awful start. Wing should have scored, and once again we are talking about missing clear chances. Let’s see if we can do the unthinkable and turn a defeat into a win. I’m not holding my breath!
  11. Ryan Lowe is doing an awesome job, but that’s not to say the same would happen if he was to come here. He’s been at Plymouth a few seasons now and has been able to build something there. We’ve seen it time and again where lower league managers try to step up to big clubs and it doesn’t always work. Nathan Jones - Stoke Cowley’s - Huddersfield Paul Hurst - Ipswich Managing a club as a big as us is different than managing Burton or Plymouth. The expectation will be far higher, and our fans would hound him out if he started badly. Jury is still out on whether it will happen for Moore either, but he needs the season at the minimum. We’re 7th, not 17th! Get behind the manager.
  12. Excellent post. We played really well at the weekend, the best I’ve seen us play for a while. We created so many chances where we got in behind their defence and the players let Moore down. Gregory was unlucky with his header though, he deserved his hatrick, put a right shift in. I think Moore has settled on Patterson and Gregory as his starting forwards now. He just needs to find some consistency with the rest of the players, and it doesn’t help that his other best CB (Hutch) is injured. He will get it right IMO, and to say we are joint points with 6th after so many points thrown away this seasons, shows we are not that far away. 4 or 6 points from our next two games, win our game in hand against Sunderland, and things will start to look very healthy.
  13. Let’s be honest, if our players had actually put their chances away at the weekend, we wouldn’t even be having this conversation. Moore simply cannot he blamed for wasted chances, and falling to pieces in the last 10 minutes. What Moore can be blamed for is not knowing his best 11 yet, and not utilising the players he brought in, who are probably wondering why they bothered joining now. Chansiri will give him until the end of season IMO and rightly so.
  14. Palmer, Bannan, Patterson, Dunkley, Iorfa(was here for all Monk’s season) , Hutch and could even throw Wildsmith in there too.
  15. Nail on the head! This is exactly the point I was making in another thread, and your stat analysis shows this even more! This isn’t down to the manager, there are deeper lying issues here. Sacking the manager won’t fix this.
  16. Having said that though, I do agree that the players are struggling with playing out from back. Maybe it will come with time as they get used to it. I remember same happened under Jos, then defenders just past it backed to Dawson under pressure who then booted it long lol.
  17. Yeah I get that. But are you saying that goal only came from him placing the ball to pass out from the back? Because I’m saying that it would have still happened if he’d planned to kick it long. Therefore I don’t agree that goal was a result of playing out from the back.
  18. I’m not sure I’d class the Ipswich goal as a result of playing out from the back. It was a keeper error , He placed the ball on the floor and got mugged. That would still have happened if BPF was kicking it long IMO.
  19. Genuine question, looking at the league table would you say Paul Cook is better manager than Moore? Because his team is currently 5 points behind us, yet he’s gained promotion from this league before. At the moment based on results alone you’d have to say no. Even though on paper, we know he probably is. Both managers have had to rebuild a whole new team, and Ipswich players on paper are arguably just as good as ours, if not better. Cook is struggling to get consistency with a newly developed team, just as Moore is. Yet Moore has gained more points after 11 games than Cook has. This is going to take time, we have to give Moore the season to see what he can do. If we finish mid table under him then fair enough maybe that would be the time to reassess the options. We can’t keep sacking managers, it hasn’t worked. We need stability now more than ever. I think the strong start we had under Moore this season has raised peoples expectations on where we should finish, I’ve always thought top 2 was never going to happen this season. Let’s not forget, a couple of months before start of season we didn’t even look like we’d be able to field a team this season, let alone compete! Sacking Moore isn’t the answer. So my vote is No. Rant over.
  20. The way I see it is, we’ve taken 6 points of two teams currently sitting in the play offs, and 3 points off another team chasing the play offs. We are 1 point off top 6 after 11 games. We’ve now got a run of winnable fixtures (on paper) for rest of October. Let’s see where we are after this, and see if we can get some consistency. Granted the football ain’t great, and it’s frustrating that he keeps changing the team and hasn’t settled on a best 11 yet, but sacking him isn’t the answer for me yet.
  21. Atleast until the end of the season. Moore is building something decent here. Need to be patient.
  22. Lee was quality, but we’ve moved on. Dennis is the future now for me. Got a rate engine on him, and will only get better.
