Paul cook should jump on the coach and let these lot make their own way home. Greet them all at Playford Road tomorrow with p45s in hand.
I just wish he would . There’s nothing left to say about this lot really is there ! They’re a spent force . Whimps the lot of them .

I absolutely bloody hate the lot of them .

Useless twats. Now 529 minutes without scoring, losing 3 - 0 to the team with the worst scoring record in the league. Throw in the white towel cook, put these tossers out of our misery!

To be fair Gary, Cook can't be held accountable for the defensive errors tonite, maybe in the team selection but who the hell else do we have, part of me thinks he's actually letting them cut their own throats

Well I'm not so sure Mike - what the hell do they do in training if they cant score and they cant create and they cant defend? Why pick loanees, why not have a Plan B?

Tonight and last Tuesday are worse than anything I saw under Lambert.

PC talks a good game, but he's far from convinced me he's the right manager for us.

All I will say regarding this bunch is it’s the same squad and it’s had three different managers now , and the outcome has always been the same. So it’s not the manager IMO, it’s these players . this squad. They are rotten to the core and have a losers mentality.

If I was Paul Cook , I would sack them all tonight and play the kids f9r the rest of the season.

That's what I said 3 weeks ago Liz. But he hasnt has he, he's continued to play loanees and players he knows will not be here next season. Like I said earlier, he's not blameless for tonight.

I genuinely think they are throwing him under the bus mate, I really do.

I haven’t posted on here for a few weeks. To be honest I got bored of the same individuals blaming the same players. We all have our favourites and those we don’t like and you just know who each poster is going to blame before you look.
But I’m with Rossi here. Cook has done nothing. It’s not just results, the performances have been awful. Look at Chambers; he’s had a decent season at right back. Moved back to central defence and doing ok. But then played on the left of a back 3 and struggled - can’t get forward from there and can’t make the pass on his wrong foot, so he’s dropped. And look how those central defenders did today. The decision not to play him probably cost us the game. Playing one up front when our only striker who can play that role is injured... poor management.
I appreciate that our players aren’t great - in was one of the few at the start of the season saying just that, despite others’ insistence that we had the best squad in the league. Cook might - and only might - do better when he can bring in players to play in his desired formation. My is that will be a big striker and lump it long. The players lack confidence. And since Cook arrived, they have got worse.

That’s all I can imagine is happening. They are rubbish, but not this rubbish and inept. They have downed tools and won’t play for him.

Maybe they are, Mike - maybe for whatever reason they really don't like him. But surely that's even more reason he shouldn't play them?

There was no INSISTENCE that Ipswich had the best squad.

But there was INCESSANT reminders that it was said.

You need to get that accurate.

Will be interesting to see how the new owners look at the current situation at the club. They may see it as a case of the players trying to throw PC under the bus or start to have doubts whether he was the right appointment. If they feel he is not the right person to take us forward then it would not surprise me to see them act quickly.
