The I've hated the last 4!! And before that I've just been a bit meh about it all. Still spend my money on it though, its my team from when I went with my dad when he was still with us and I would love it to be my boys team as he gets older. There is finally something to look forward too and that is the summer transfer window and next season under Cook.

Yes it comes to something when poor old Prince Phillip spends more time in the box than all our strikers put together.

I don't like them but they're streets ahead of us in terms of progression and ambition. While we were f**king around with 13 years of non events with the Evans Group they were getting things done with owners and directors that actually cared or possesed a tangible interest. Not giving then anything other than that. Pains to say it but that's the reality of the situation.

Game today, another no score draw from us. f**king hell how many is that now. You can bet your as* they'll be another or two before the season is out. Appears we played better today but one point from it that contributes zero to the end of season. Didn't Cook say yesterday we can expect exciting attacking play from us and Charlton had get ready for a real test, or something of that nature.

Guess in another dimension it may have occurred but just reading up on another blank game from us. Maybe some positives to take from today however this team couldn't score in a (insert appropriate terminology here) A mass cull in the summer is just about near imperative.

Can't remember Cook saying anything about expecting attacking football. I think he was damn well honest in saying we struggle to get crosses in, struggle to get shots taken, and don't even go with shots on target. I could be wrong, maybe I didn't hear him but am sure Cook never mentioned exciting football

We were better today but still dismal in final third, rather have lost and attacked than draw with our stats.

7 promotions , and relegations . Each time they are given over £100m (That’s a conservative figure)..... you’d expect them to be “streets ahead” on close to £1bn income from Pl coffers wouldnt you .

But all said snd done they are still just a well funded Championship Club, because they have never consolidated in the PL, and more to the point never LOOKED to even try to. You could almost say they’ve lacked ambition given the money they’ve received. Yes they have done well this season. But so they should on the money they’ve had.

I’ll say again these are simply the facts . No “ bile” , no vitriol just facts about what’s happened at their club . I’m not comparing in anyway to ITFC . I’m looking solely at what they have “ achieved “, and frankly I’d say not a lot . Nice academy and training ground , but what else ?

I think you’ll find it’s an historical and reciprocal terminology between the fans VR, and and yes they have some decent fans, just as Town do, and also some pillocks.....just as Ipswich do. It’s the nature of the sport at all clubs, sadly. But it pales into insignificance compared to some rivalries I think you’ll agree.

Maybe something to do with your use of the word scum?

All clubs relegated from Prem are well funded but not many bounce back straight away. Some even drop another level. Norwich are superbly run and made a great appointment in Farke. For me they should be congratulated on their achievements this season. For me, Norwich and Ipswich are 2 very similar clubs with similar fans. Hopefully Ipswich over the next few seasons can get back to where they belong i.e. competing with Norwich

Thankfully the ownership has changed and hopefully Ipswich Town FC can move back closer again in League status to NCFC. As it was going, it was heading towards a Stoke City / Port Vale scenario.
