I hope people are listening to what these commentators are saying about this club needing time to settle in a brand new squad .

4-2-3-1, or 4-4-2? Seems to make little difference to Ipswich!

TC’s playing style;
Thomas James Carroll is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for League One side Ipswich Town. Carroll plays as a deep-lying creative central midfielder, and is particularly valued for his high passing percentage accuracy and creativity. (Source Wikipedia)

For me Cook and Co have a hell of a lot to answer for, these players look an absolute disgrace and bereft of quality, confidence, concern, you name it.

0-1

To be fair, we do occasionally pass forward. The issue is we never do it two passes in a row.

One or two up front makes no difference if you don't actually try and pass to them.

Surely not with the best squad in league 1. This lot are making last year’s squad look good.

There will be a few in my personal opinion will be shown the door, not good enough, we need to dig deep or we are onto a hiding.

Mcgreal needs to make some changes and hate to say it, formation tweak, 4 4 2 is not working tonight.

If this is the best that he can motivate the players then McGreal needs to get the f*ck out of the club too god help us if he hangs around much longer, League Two beckons.

At least 4,2,3,1 potentially gives you goals from 4 players and allows the wing backs to attack. At the moment we look clueless which will just add to their confidence.

Think there is more than a few need to be shown the door. Absolute disgrace so far I really feel the fans who have made the effort to go there.
