Glad Baggott gets a start. Don't understand why Thompson starts

Baptism of fire for Baggott. It would need great to see him do well.
Starting to get excited now. Lightweight we may be but there are a lot of decent footballers in the team. I hope they can win it over bully-boy giants.

Morsy, Bakinson and Celina were below par in my opinion. We had a decent first half but only really created the one chance.
Not sure what Rotherham did differently second half to come at us but we failed to make any changes to stop it.

I think we just look tired in the second half. It's been as poor a performance as we've given under this management.

Didn't turn up in 2nd half. Needs to try a different striker on Tuesday because we won't score if he keeps playing those 3. Baggott did well Norwood and Thompson awful the rest under par except Walton.

Decent first half, second half we looked toothless spineless and clueless, and fully got what we deserved.

So, yet another season in this awful league to look forward to.

Much transfer work needed in the break, I think, because the shower of sh*te that played in the second half will not get us anywhere.

Woolfie running from one end of the pitch to the other! Looked like he couldnt quite believe he was there in front of goal. Should've shot!

I thought Baggott had a very good game, aerially and on the ground. Got a bit lost positionally early on but a good performance.

For me, Celina, Thompson, Bonne, Norwood and Piggott all need to go. We can't afford Celina's 1 good game in 6 as the rest of the time he is a passenger. A luxury we cannot afford.

I take a lot of comfort from McKenna post match interview… a small part of his interview….

“Over the last week or two we've known it was probably going to be beyond us for the play-offs this year," said McKenna. "It was always going to be a very tall ask from the start of the season we had and the runs that other teams have had. I don't think today changes that. I think it's points we dropped earlier in the season that dictates that.

"For us it's about building now. I think it's really clear for me to see, and probably for everyone else to see, the areas of the game that we're very good at and also the things that we need to improve in the summer, both with recruitment and coaching. We look forward to that process now. We go into the summer with a real clarity about what we need to do to improve the team and the squad.”

Managed to watch game back on sky today and tend to agree, really lacked up front and need to match the physical challenge that Rotherham posed in second half. Recruitment will be key. All the teams coming down will be a force in league one next season including Derby if they get the ownership stuff sorted which they will.

FFS KM Please try bloody Simpson up top do not ever play Norwood, Jackson, Piggott, & Bonne, Carroll, Thompson, ever again, just get rid of them at the end of the season even if they still have one-year contracts get shod, as has been proved their all are not capable or effective in league one, also KM has got to get players hardened up because League one is a roughhouse type of football, its not suitable for the pretty passing type of play against most of the teams in League 0ne, but for the last remaining games play some of the under 23's to give them a runout to see how they perform.

And let's get rid of this only turning up for one half of a game or even not turning up at all, it's disrespectful to the manager and the fans I would not pay them for the games that this happens, :x :x absolute Tossers.

Sorry B W but Celina will stay as he's part of the future for Ipswich, when the game is flowing Celina excels but every player in the team has to be on their game when we have absolute Tossers as strikers that couldn't hit a cows arse with a banjo, you have to say enough is enough and get rid of them all and bring in young hungry strikers who know where the F*****G back of the net is, oh for a pairing like Ted Phillips and Ray Crawford, Mariner and Brazil, Wark, there out there so go find them.

Maybe he will, maybe he won't. If he does what he can do, I would be happy but through this whole season, he has been lightweight and a 1 good game in 6 player. Given the cost as well, I just think we may look elsewhere. Still, its not our decision and I trust McKenna will do what he sees fit and that will be OK for me 👍

I agree. Celina is luxury at this level. Inconsistent also.l thought Ipswich looked a bit too nice today and lightweight. Nice passing team but need a lot more that to get out league one. Not nearly enough up front. Big test coming up McKenna now. Good communicator, interviews well and done decent job so far but the next steps are the crucial one's

Very good first half, crap second, can't blame KM for Norwood f**king up in the 8th minute, totally crap. Agree about Celina, always has been a bloody liability, woeful 5 games out of 6 and as for Thompson, wtf.

For me the most mystifying thing in KMs insistence on - whenever he starts with Aluko and leaves Chaplin on the bench - making that substitution after 60 mins. Chaplin offered absolutely nothing in the time he was on, actually he never does.

AB agree with all that. Baggott proved a U23 can cope. So in the last 3 games lets see Simpson and Humphries play, can't do any worse. Do not want to see the following kick a ball again this season. Norwood, Carroll, Thompson and Piggott. If we are going to sign Bakinson and Celina then put them in the squad if not then don't. Norwood's miss yesterday effectively cost us the game. If they had gone behind they would of panicked but that miss let them grow into the game. As for Chaplin he is so frustrating.
