Not able to watch, but it sounds like the players are moving the ball quickly and in the right direction. How many of us have commented in the past about the constant backward passing and slow movement? If this is the improvement we get after 2 weeks of McKenna I can see greater things coming sooner rather than later.

Well Cook had them beat Doncaster 6-0, who aren't much worse than Gillingham, so let's see if we can hit 7 today?!!

Playing so well…

Gillingham are terrible but even so, what verve and confidence. Could be 8-0 if this continues.

On the downside, forgot prediction league. Damn

Funnily enough I logged into ifollow and it wouldn’t let me watch it. Then remembered my VPN is set to UK. Now I’m in ‘France’ and watching fine. Not sure, but I don’t think they’ve collected my sub

Id love Bonne to get a second goal next half to really set him on his way again.

Absolutely outstanding by Town! Brazilian in style . The ball is never still and by the time a Gillingham player goes to tackle , the ball has moved on two more passes .

Only criticism is I’d like to see us play that in Gillinghams half , not ours.

Need a goal second half to kill then off. Think they’ll be right in our faces with hoof ball into our box second half …

Amazing what happens when you play the right formation
Very true Mike but its not just the formation. There's not much back to front, then back again then side to side as been guilty of in the past.

We are quicker, one touch pass, Turn then pass, One, twos. Touch and go, pass and move. Such joy to watch and then Burns, what a great player he is though all played well to be fair

Steve Evens will blow a gasket now and be interesting to see how Ipswich handle this

That 48 minutes was a pleasure to watch Town in total control. There only threat is from set pieces. Town must not gift them anytime early in 2nd half.

Yes no goals but still entertaining... Pigott needs game time he looks just off full sharpeness

We are out muscling them also and love Steve Evens and his assistant acting like pathetic pair of clowns

Those two actions shows on their players. The player who just got sent off is so stupid, cannot complain in getting sent off

If this is Mckenna coaching long may it continue. We have looked like a proper team. Brilliant 3 lovely points.

So very true, in all departments we were superb. I would say that was as close to perfection as likely to get and even in the pouring rain

Superb and a lot of draws in the other games which have helped us. Only 8 points from playoffs now :D Real pleasure to watch that.
Roll on Bolton. COYB

I’ll be honest with you here, I haven’t seen a Town team pass it around like we have today, since that 81 side . Absolutely over the moon with that display . Can’t believe I’ve just seen us do that !

I think it's fair to say that McKenna has made a reasonable start to his stint as manager. :lol:
