Might be a silly question. Why was burgess booked there? Can you not challenge a goalkeeper when they kick the ball?
Not allowed no

As Mick Mills has just said it’s also a night when we really should keep a clean sheet.

I wanted to go tonight but with my New Job and starting at half 5 in Morning I didn't want to risk it :(. Let's get a few more now.

I know Donny are poor but surely the doubters can start to see how much better Cookie has got this team playing.

Can see why Cook has bigged up Morsy, quality player, will have harder nights but even so

After seeing Morsy’s highlights reel, I could tell he was quality even though those highlights can be deceiving. Wish I was at Portman Road tonight! COYB!

Yes got to agree, Celina certainly has improved as the half went on

Donny are very poor but lets give Ipswich some credit for playing excellent

2 - 0 is a very encouraging score at the interval. I viewed today as real banana skin fixture territory but seems the players have risen to the challenge and gone about their business the right way. Is Bonne playing as a lone attacker ? Don't see the logic in it against home advantage with the caliber of these opponents but seems whatever was deployed is paying off.

Vaclav will continue in goal for further games ahead should these points continue to rack up. Too early to say we've won but you got to feel a certain reassurance for the next forty-five ahead.

Doncaster are terrible.

Morsy’s doing the simple things very well. Looks just the player we need.

As Mick Mills says…. as long as the defensive players do their job it’s a win.

I just worry about us getting too cocky going for a third and we gift them a way back in.

I think if we can keep it tight and get a third or more.

Looking good at 2 up, Doncaster are definitely in trouble though, very poor.

So far Burns, Donacien and Morsy looking standout for me although all round good performance but a couple could do with a firecracracker up their jacksies tho lol, would then be outstanding.

2 or 3 more next half!

Even though Donny sound absolute crap, that really would be awesome for the "belief" amongst the players.

Sheff Wed 2 up at Wigan, maybe that wasn’t a bad point on Saturday.
