Would have been there tonight but in the Highlands instead. COYB'S bring home the points
“Up the hee’lans and a croas the trossachs, pullin oor wires, Tour 90!”

That was some holiday, Mike. Still have those t shirts with that printed on them.

If youre anywhere near Tyndrum, go into the burger joint rest stop, see if Big Janet is still there!! :lol: Was 31 years ago, so maybe not!

That team should be of record equalling potential. No more Floriana……. Cheltenham 0 Ipswich 11

Burgess is just what we need at the back. Great signing.

Is it just me or does their pitch look to be the size of a postage stamp ? Looks really small to me .

Best seen Woolfy play for ages. Maybe having Burgess beside him is making him

Still cannot get over how we are not two up though.. Biggest miss ever seen by an Ipswich player

Good goal how Bonne missed I don't know. Surprising how many long balls we play. If they don't stick we lose possession when it does stick we start to play. Edwards best player on the park. Corners have been awful.

Thought same thing

Portman Road
Field size 112 by 82 yards (102 m × 75 m)

Cheltenham pitch size

Pitch Size 101 x 65 (6565)

That really looks tiny

Everyone doing their bit and agree that Wolfy has had lots of touches on the ball and playing well. Liked how Burgess was talking tactics to Evans & Bonne during a break in play, he certainly knows when to put his foot through the ball, and sometimes those long balls have got us on the front foot.
Edwards really impressive. All in all good first half, main issues are Tozer's long throws and keeping switched on at set pieces.

Decent first half, Penney with a great goal, looking good going forward on the left, combined with Edwards, who looks great player.

Not that impressed with the front two, Bonne, jesus! what a cluster f of a miss.

Woolf ok but still looks a liabilty, Burgess adding much needed grit and vocals.

Midfield ok but not im sure on this formation, time is needed but maybe another goal and we will settle and will flow better.

Overall looking pretty decent, roll on 2nd half.

what a shocker, defence and goalie suspect, all well and good these 'flair' players but not if they cannot score.
