Highlights are interesting. Looks like Bonne had a tough game. Maybe should have got his head on the goal attempt and also was unconvincing attacking that long throw for the second.

Their first goal wasn't connected with the long throw at all, was a later phase of play. Maybe we could have done better to put the crossing player under pressure as it was a perfect cross.

Sheffield Weds on 1 pt,
Just in case you’re holding the table upside down, Dubai…….. the local bank holiday that is Sheffield Wednesday are 4th on 7pts.

Just over 12 hours later. Still thinking, “hmmmm, Cheltenham?”


I mean we should all carry on thinking that cheltenham is just a horse racing community and FORGET last night. It didn't happen!

My mistake Marko. I was using the table on TWTD which for some reason started Sheffield Wednesday with a 6 point deduction.

Thanks for the warm welcome all, i've long been lurking but will try to be more active in future.

As mentioned very fine lines, sort the defence out and it will all click into place (he says with fingers and everything else firmly crossed!)
Yes welcome James, nice to have some new posters with positive and constructive input, stick around.

Looking at the highlights, Cheltenham's first goal was due to poor marking. Their second goal was due to lack of movement and speed to react to the ball. Lovely goal by Penney, I thought Bonne's miss was simply because he over hit the chip. Edwards looks really good.

I know the highlights are just a small snippet of the season so far, but for me it really looks like we're lacking communication at the back. Of course we all know that's a classic example of players who haven't played together for long. I do think we need a lot more urgency in defence at least from this example...but that was a major problem before, so Cook should've addressed that already.

Having had a chance to reflect, my early optimism about our prospects for the season has reasserted itself.

I thought we looked very good in the first half and could, perhaps should, have been 2 up by half time.

Getting defensive cohesion, with new signings, was always going to be the last part of the restructuring of the team to achieve.

I thought Burgess looks a really good buy.

I do feel that we are going to give someone a hiding sooner or later and, when we do, we will soar. COYB

Having seen the highlights I have to say our defence looks an absolute shambles and unlike others my optimism for the season has been somewhat dampened if I'm honest, we need KVY, Edmundson and Burgess playing, until that happens we will continue to struggle and ship goals.

A couple of people on here reckoning Ipswich are about to start pumpin the opposition?
I hope all who think this are bang on the money.

But, is this thinking coming from watching the full 90? Genuinely asking because i haven’t witnessed itfc this season yet except the shocking colchester friendly, (pre decent signings) ……
Is it going to click soon? Are the hidings just around the corner?

Not sure he's gonna be any better than Penney, certainly not going forward

I watched the full 90 and it wasnt really much different to last season imo.

I think there are signs of progress Marko and genuinely think we will be there or thereabouts but as I said yesterday, it may not be this season that we see the benefits in all their glory. I hope we do but you never know...

What the f*ck. You must mean Revere. Warned US forces (famous overnight ride) about approaching British troops before battles of Concord / Lexington (1775) at the time of the Revolution.
