  1. I can also only assume that you now hope are sold on... Strange behaviour from a so called City fan.. there again you do get more excited at the fees raised rather than them performing for the club so I really should not be surprised.
  2. Historically we have been on the same terms as them, investment and some ambition plus a huge degree of luck meant they won the league....
  3. [quote user="hogesar"]We''re on a good enough run that its got to the stage posters like Mike and Lincoln end up saying something positive, panic a little and then caveat it with some negative. We must be doing well![/quote] Christ you are a child...
  4. Thought Max was particularly good at QPR... Cantwell show some god touches and we all know about Lewis... Good news...let''s hope they are not sold on before their peak...
  5. Was a snip at £25m and it was a pathetic that we only got one season out of him... Still gutted he is not here and take no pleasure at all with him playing for someone else... Especially a club of the same stature as us...
  6. [quote user="king canary"]"If you could just bring yourself to give praise without the negative caveats, caveats which are often based on the flimsiest of ideas - you might be given more credibility." Oh christ my irony meter just exploded.[/quote] LOL!
  7. [quote user="hogesar"]Of course no-one wants to see him become he next ''Marley Watkins'' but that is primarily up to him. If he can''t deliver then he will readily be replaced by a younger alternative where possible. If he delivers more than our younger group of players then he''ll get a chance. As for mentioning Watkins in terms of his performance for Bristol it''s kind of irrelevant as he was shocking here. Thankfully we have a much more talented player in Pukki, who I guess you could class as his replacement. Or maybe Buendia, who again looks a much more talented footballer.[/quote] Watkins was great for Barnsley & doing well at Bristol City. Marshall has always looked good when I have seen him but started poorly here.... still hoping he comes good but weird that they have both struggled & not getting consistent games in their preferred position maybe one of the reasons...
  8. Hanpey started poorly due to a lack of pre season but against them he was collosal... A major blow as he is far and away our best defender. The season is already shaping up to be one long slog
  9. Thought it was daft to let him go....good luck to the fella
  10. [quote user="lake district canary"]You need help Vince. It seems as if you post this negative rhetoric all the time in the hope that you might fool one or two people into believing you, but if they do, then they are as stupid as you for being taken in. Good luck with your crusade, however, most of us thankfully have a more realistic and balanced view of things. [/quote] I agree but would say you blind optimism also negates some f your valid points
  11. If our results get much worse, I doubt that we would be seen as attractive to potential young talent... would the 3 lads in our first team have joined from Luton (2) & York if we had been in L1?
  12. I''m extremely happy to be in the company of the people I am... Imagine the alternative...
  13. [quote user="JF"]Delia. Not one fan on this forum bleeds yellow and green more than her. Quick poll to the fans on this forum. How many of you have been pictured wearing an Ipswich scarf?[/quote] To be fair, I think she was handed that on a live TV programme.. it was not hers....
  14. [quote user="Essjayess"]Well done Lakey, a realistic, positive, honest opinion from you that i mostly agree with. The negative nancy''s on this board spurt the same old nothings any time someone tries to put a decent appraisal of where our club is at right now.Im positive about whats happening on and off the pitch at this moment, in fact more positive than ive felt in years. To many seasons being a yo-yo club, must be a pain in the butt to try to build a finance model that will change drastically every 12 months because of the enormous difference in revenue each division yields. So for now, you can keep your Prem and your L1. I love our club being in the Championship if im honest, its the most competitive league in England, likely in all of Europe.Colney is getting the upgrade it badly needed, and on the pitch the youngsters that are coming thru are being given their chance. "Lewis..academy product, Aarons...academy product, Godfrey..academy product, Thompson...etc etc". DF''s own words after Sundays match. Further down the line the likes of Idah and others will to come thru to enhance what i personally have wished for and wanted to see for so long. And some on here want Farke to go now?..crazy.Delia. Not one fan on this forum bleeds yellow and green more than her. That''s all i can be bothered to write. Some still churn out the rich investor needs to take over the club mantra...ok where are they?..show me the line of them queing at the club gate waiting to buy up the club..maybe you guys can conjure these mythical figures out of thin air. OTBC.[/quote] It''s about competency not whether you bleed yellow and green. No doubt everyone at the club wants to be successful it''s whether you think they think they can be or whether there are maybe others you think could be more successful. This is not a hate Delia thing..

The intolerance was being shown by JF to Lakey. [/quote] Yes was happy to see you change tack... PS it''s not all about you.
  16. [quote user="Aggy"]The balancing act between board and fans is probably quite important here - the board’s expectations are probably lower currently than a lot (but not all) of the fans. If we’re looking to stay up, secure our finances and look to rebuild for a promotion push in a couple of years then Farke will get more time following poor results than if we want playoffs this season. As long as we aren’t seriously in a relegation scrap, I think his job will be safe for this season and probably next.[/quote] It''s whether 22 points from 22 games is enough...hopefully will pick up not that confident
  17. [quote user="Mike "][quote user="Samwam27"]It is exciting to see Aarons, Jamal, Godfrey, Thompson all playing, and does show we''re trying to invest in our youth product. But on a more negative side it''s a results driven business. One win in six is poor by all standards. And having been soundly beaten by Leeds it''s Middlesboro up next. Another defeat, followed by two tricky away ties and we could be in serious trouble. We all said we''d give Farke 10 games (imo the board will stick with him) but we could realistically be in bottom three by time these games are up, IF Farke can''t get results. And if that happens it''s hard to see how any manager starts to turn things round. What do people think[/quote] Professional sport is 100% a results business. You win, you drive atmosphere, ticket and merch sales, you as fans feel better, better players want to play for you and the area you play in gets a big boost. If you can not get the results then the opposite happens. Our results need to improve.[/quote] Glad we won at Cardiff because I will be at Wycombe but that result was against a Cardiff B side and Colin was not that arsed. 5 points in league is not great and needs to improve given that Farke and Webber both said they were very happy with business done in the summer. One major positive yesterday was Hanley who having missed pre season now seems to be getting back to his best

  21. [quote user="norfolkngood"]If Farke was such a wonder Coach he would have a style / Tactic that is producing far more on the Pitch than we are getting now He has been here long enough now Alex Neil got his style across very quickly to players that were not signed by him when he first came Lambert had a lot of new players when he arrived signed before he got here but he got those to gel and play to his system why Can Wonder coach Farke not get this team producing results ?[/quote] We have a system now that allows Webber to buy / identify targets, Farke then coaches these players and we have an identifiable way of playing. I would like to know what people think that system is and if they think its working in this league. What identifiable improvements are we seeing after the 3 transfer windows that Webber said, he should be judged or do we need more time?
  22. Interesting view from the Guardian... ''In truth, neither team looks remotely equipped to bother the promotion challengers and both looked exactly what they are: mediocre second-tier sides in flux, with new relationships yet to be perfected but no sign of the presence or cutting edge possessed by the best at this level. Both were denuded of key players over the summer; both are, in different ways, rebuilding and the only sure conclusion can be that East Anglian football has seen far better days than this.''
