I have to agree with you, the Premeirship is not at all what it''s cracked up to be, you end up feeding huge amounts of money on high earning prema donna''s who have little respect for the fans or the club. I really don''t know why we all look to this as being the holy grail! it''s not, it''s just a whpping ground for the big boys who are protected by the FA & Sky.

 

I am bored to tears with it and it doesn''t make for better football, I am so looking forward to the real crunch games, Wolves, Leeds and Binners!

 

I''m also looking forward to blodding some of our youth winning FA cup players, we have some great potential here and player with something to prove.

 

I have to say it''s uncanny how both the binners and us spent so much on two strikers with big reputations and yet not good enough for the premiership.

 

Bring it on BINMAN KING, even if you have Mick as the manager you will still be looking up the table to find us next season!

It''s very uncanny indeed - I think what it underlined for us Ipswich fans is that we have to go back to what we were best at: unearthing raw talent and nurturing it ourselves rather than buying ready-made prima donnas that simply saw us as a stepping stone to bigger things. I still remember seeing Gary Hooper''s first interview as a Norwich player and the first thing he said was how he hoped it would put him in the shop window for England - nothing about what an honour it was to play for Norwich! That said it all for me.We may look up the table at you next season, but I can assure you under Mick we''ll be a much tougher proposition than you faced under Keane and Jewell.

mork is too stupid and has his head so far up his own poop chute that he can''t see Reggie is attacking BOTH he and PK.

He''s an embarrassment to the team and to this forum. Give it a rest, you simple minded blowhard.

Courteous you may well think you are old binner but then your disgrace of a club were very courteous when not paying their debts to local businesses Smiling assassin etc!!

Best thing was when your chairman at the time was awarded the freedom of Ipswich for his efforts!

I have to agree with you, the Premeirship is not at all what it''s cracked up to be, you end up feeding huge amounts of money on high earning prema donna''s who have little respect for the fans or the club. I really don''t know why we all look to this as being the holy grail! it''s not, it''s just a whpping ground for the big boys who are protected by the FA & Sky.

 

I am bored to tears with it and it doesn''t make for better football, I am so looking forward to the real crunch games, Wolves, Leeds and Binners!

 

I''m also looking forward to blodding some of our youth winning FA cup players, we have some great potential here and player with something to prove.

 

I have to say it''s uncanny how both the binners and us spent so much on two strikers with big reputations and yet not good enough for the premiership.

 

Bring it on BINMAN KING, even if you have Mick as the manager you will still be looking up the table to find us next season!

[/quote]FINALLY - a reasoned, sensible response!It will definitely be nice to lock horns again. I find the Prem is almost demeaning to the bottom third of teams in the league as they all know full well that it''s anything but a level playing field. It''s very uncanny indeed - I think what it underlined for us Ipswich fans is that we have to go back to what we were best at: unearthing raw talent and nurturing it ourselves rather than buying ready-made prima donnas that simply saw us as a stepping stone to bigger things. I still remember seeing Gary Hooper''s first interview as a Norwich player and the first thing he said was how he hoped it would put him in the shop window for England - nothing about what an honour it was to play for Norwich! That said it all for me.We may look up the table at you next season, but I can assure you under Mick we''ll be a much tougher proposition than you faced under Keane and Jewell.[/quote]Oddly I didn''t get a response from you about whether or not you were proud about defrauding local traders when you went into administration....[/quote]Because you''re frankly boring me, and your fellow contemporaries by the sounds of things.Yes, we made mistakes financially, but we weren''t the first (or the last) and we''re certainly being more responsible now. In fact we''re one of the few Championship clubs to truly champion the FFP rules.[/quote]

Awwww, the truth about your grubby little club hurts, does it?[:(][/quote]What about the truth of your South Stand which ''burnt down''? Or are you too young to know about all that?[/quote]Seriously, you consider your conspiracy theory somehow makes as scummy as you? You really that desperate to cling onto something?[/quote]I''m not clinging to anything. I''m playing devil''s advocate.Enjoy this evening, anyway. I''ve got a few Adnams in the cupboard to toast the Black Cats.[/quote]Enjoy your evening, it could be a lucky one, if you can run faster than your sister.[:)]
