How long is Toto out for?
Will be a while i guess if it's a hamstring injury. Still think we need two CBs.

I think James Norwood just spoke for the Whole Stadium giving the Ref a mouthful. I've honestly never seen a more 1 sided Referee in my Life. Every time we so much as go in for a Tackle he blows up. Morecambe Players have on several occasions lunged in on Ipswich Players and nothing.

Seriously? Look, i have made comments today which could be perceived by some as bordering negative.
Yes we have conceded 2 goals to Morecambe, but we are and will be a work in progress for a while - patience is key!.
Let's wait and see what those who have seen the game say first!

Got a draw, with a new team which has been together for a few weeks . What do you really expect.

Iโ€™m not too disheartened to be honest because thereโ€™s no way weโ€™d have come back like that so late in the game last season. The old guard would have given up long before the final whistle.

A late goal saving a point is the minimum we deserved from this game. I'm not perturbed in the slightest by the result. This is a new team and it will take quite a few games for it to mesh.

There was some lovely football and, once we get our defence sorted, I confidently expect us to be a real force this season. I predict playoffs at a minimum! Ever the optimist.

Glad to hear Nors got an assist and delighted for Bonne. Hero in the making. Satisfied with that. Need central defence sorted and team to get to know each other then we will be unstoppable๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Looking forward to Mike's report.

Delighted for Bonne too and I like the sounds of that match and the look of the stats, it's encouraging.

Of course a win would be desirable against Morecombe, but two goals and a performance is great. I've been worried about goals coming from the new team, but I guess it's actually the defence that can take longer to sort out and get synchronised, especially as we seem to be a senior CB or two short.

Good signs I think.

Yes, think that is a good assessment. Delighted for Bonne too and goes to show that we have very healthy competition and options up front.

Again, just watching it on ticker on Fotmob, but it seemed there was a lot better passing and aggressive play than we have seen the past couple of years. The second half, Town was all over them. Seems a lot to build on after just one game. Glad we got the point, upwards and onwards.
