Who knows wot the next 2 months will hold?

I think we will finish outside play-offs now. We have been poor now for several games, with no sign whatsoever of our defence tightening up.

My tip for the play-offs: Crystal Palace.

I voted for the same, we're making the same stupid errors we were in Agusut, you'd hope with two defenders in Mowbray and Donachie there they could iron these things out, but obviously not.

I've said it before, and I'll say it millions of times in the future:

If Richard Naylor continues in the centre of defence we will never keep clean sheets. It's as simple as that, the guy is no defender, for all the heart and commitment you need some skill, and he has none whatsoever sadly.

Naylor's not the only problem though to be honest, granted he gives the ball away in some awful positions, and is probbably part of the problem, but I don't think he is 100% to blame.

Never said he was 100% to blame but he contributes to a tremendous amount of goals conceded and it is a worry. Hopefully we'll see Santos and Diallo next week, which did ok in 2nd half tonight.

Would agree with that, Naylor is prone to the odd lapse here and there and thats cost us a lot in the past, he's got great commitment and would die for the club, but I simply don't think he's good enough to be first choice centre back.

Would also like to see Santos and Drissa given a go over a longer period, but I think Royle's a big McGreal and Naylor fan from comments he's said in the past so I'm not sure if we will see it.

as ive said b4 id like to see both of us go up this season...it would be good for east anglia having both teams in the top flight & wouldnt be the same without the banter between us especialy around the derby games...

was your game as bad as it sounds today, i didnt get a chance to see any of it... Im sure you'l pull a few results together soon, lets face it if you'd won today you'd be 3rd now & you'd all be feeling alot happier...Im sure you will atleast make the play offs & hopefuly do well in them, unless we're in them aswell :wink:

Cheer up you lot!!!!

Trust us! We were awful today! Worse than we were against you lot!

There is no way both Ipswich and Norwich will go up this season...I would bet my mortgage on it.

Diallo was as bad as naylor and he is supposed 2 b a centre back! i'm not just saying that becos he made a mistake 4 the 1st goal. He was awful thro-out but so was whole team so........
Just gotta say i thought Bent made us a lot more lively and threatening. Definately kuqi and Bent to start next game!

To get the money that you get when entering the prem, investing wisely, maybe going back into division one and starting all over again but with a better financial footing.
