line up for the first game - Team Skuse.

Wright, Vincent-Young, Ward, Nsiala, Woolfenden, Skuse, Bishop, Huws, Dobra, Edwards, Drinan.

Subs: Smith, El Mizouni, Folami.

Drinan looks like the lone striker. Would have thought Folami would be in front of him.

Yes I'm watching it, awful commentary but ok to watch. 1-0 up, KVY missed Two sitters, should be 3 or 4.

I’ve had no problem.

But it’s .... difficult to see anything from the footage. It’s like watching ants on a field.

2 - 0 up. Drinan two.

:) I can hardly make out the players.... especially the far side of the pitch. Could be Toto or Skuse on the ball.

The commentator is by far the most incompetent one I’ve heard. He’s like Alan Partridge - “ I can’t tell you what’s happened as I wasn’t looking”.

I can see it pretty well tbh but yes Skuse has a hell of a tan :lol: I thought Bishop looked decent and ward got forward well a few times.

👏👏👏👏

Were they wearing the new Carers Trust shirts?

My shirt arrived couple weeks ago, I flippin love it. Best Ipswich shirt for over 20 years..... in my opinion of course.

Well done tonight........ 4-0, superb.

El Mizouni goal was excellent. Kvy looked fit and lively. Thought Huws and Skuse were both poor. Opposition very poor. Good run out though.

Team Chambers.

Przybek, Donacien, Kenlock, Chambers, Ndaba, Downes, Judge, Dozzell, Lankester, Sears, Jackson.

Subs: Smith, McGavin, Folami.

Ndaba in there - no Wilson. Or Nolan... or Cornell or Hawkins.

Christ, we’ve got a big squad.

Closer 2nd game but a good work out and a win is a win, I thought Corrie Ndaba did well. Two clean sheets is pleasing too but weak opposition

If that is the way of playing to get us out of Lg 1 I fear for our chances. Tippy tappy football around our own box side to side and back again. Better teams than Colchester would press us and force us into hoof ball. We will see. 2nd match nobody was poor but nobody stood out either The goal was well worked from a corner and taken well.

Not sure what to make of these games, but good to win and a good work out.

I liked El Mizouni - not just for his goal - but he likes to attack and make things happen.

The problem is we’ve got so many players, I think it’s going to be hard to find a best team. The back four should pick themselves and Downes.... but not sure who else will start. Haven’t a clue who Lambo would pick in midfield and out wide. And I have a feeling Lambo wants that lone striker and that doesn’t suit Jackson
