  1. Some sort of platforming element that takes everyone a different amount of time to complete, allowing those that have already got through to try and push each other to their deaths. Other raid groups put most of their time and effort into killing each other too right?
  2. Bit of a schooling today - was surprised that we played the same team as against Brentford; you can't keep getting away with it and today we didn't. There's no getting away from the fact that our squad is paper thin at the moment, but it really showed up Mick's lack of flexibility and tactical nous today. Basically Fulham had watched a video of the Brentford game and set up to exploit our weaknesses. We're basically playing four strikers, but not in an all-out-attack formation, Waghorn and Sears are sort of playing midfield, and sort of tracking back. So Fulham doubled up on their
  3. Played well again and suited the game as he's good at getting foot in / stepping in when someone tries to go past him. Also had a couple of good marauding runs forward. Again, not really sure what Wolves' motivation was in sending him out on loan; have you got someone really good as your right back?
  4. Brentford is a good day out - good pubs and good stewards. Based on today, they play too much football - just checking the stats they had 65% possession but didn't really do anything with it. Given our make-shift defence they should really have just ran at us, played it behind the back-four, anything really other than nice neat intricate passing, which we just stood back from and then just tackled / blocked when they actually got anywhere near the goal. It really was an immense performance by every single player - such a change from last year's half-arsed crap. Crystal Palace on Tu
  5. Great game today - absolutely immense performance from Ipswich. Our squad is paper thin with injuries and illness; our starting 11 included four full backs and four strikers. Still, got to enjoy it whilst it lasts.
  6. WE'RE GOING TO WIN THE RUDDY LEAGUE!!! Wolves can come second.
  7. Join us Dennis! Search your soul, you know blue is a much more sensible colour for a football shirt than yellow!
  8. Three wins out of three for Uber Mick and his team of bastards. I hope he sticks to his guns and doesn't bottle it when the inevitable loss comes - we haven't really been the stereotypical 'McCarthy Team' for the last three seasons and, should this be his last year at Ipswich (and I hope it is) then I hope he really goes for it and goes out on a high. The new strikers are total bastard, Robert Fleck types (showing my age there) and it could be a good mix of the likes of them, players like McGoldrick who can actually pass the ball and then, hopefully, some of our youth team coming through - who
  9. We've signed a striker!!! What the shitting hell is going on? I can only assume that, whist walking to the game last Saturday I was hit by a car and the subsequent good game, win and now signing are all some weird fevered dream brought on by the copious drugs required to keep me alive. None of this can be real! https://www.twtd.co.uk/ipswich-town-news/32007/town-confirm-waghorn-signing
  10. Most importantly, with the closure of the Robert Ransome - where was I going to drink before the match? As my old man is suspicious of anything that isn't a Wetherspoons we moved over the road to the Cricketers. First signs were terrible - drastically understaffed, but as the crowds lessened (probably with people getting bored of waiting to get served going some where else) it settled down and my Dad was happy with his burger and beer deal and I got stuck into drinking away my heart ache over there being no Pitman (he scored two for Portsmouth against Rochdale). Onto the game, I t
  11. You cheerful, optimistic bastards. Buying players - who do you think you are? Melchester Rovers? The main Ipswich fan forum is Those Were The Days - there's a guy on there (HarryfromBath) who before each game does a 'View from the opposing fans' kind of thing where he goes on opposition teams' forums and collates a report on what they think about their team, the season and their chances against Ipswich (they usually think we're shit and that they're going to win). They're very good. He's just done a pre-season report for all the various teams - here's the Wolves one:
  12. Quality coverage of the shit leagues in the Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/football/2017/jul/24/football-league-club-season-championship-league-one-league-two "Who are these teams ... Ipswich ... Town? Fuck that, source some below the line quotes and that'll do".
  13. I started a couple of months back on PS4. I really liked it up until level 50 (the cap in the base game) - and bought Heavensward. I'd been warned that you needed to finish the main story quest line before you could go onto the expansion, but hadn't been prepared for what a boring grind it would be. I should stress that obviously if you were playing it at the time then it was probably quite cool - new content being released in each end game patch and a lot to do in each, but for someone like me trying to catch up it was dull and they don't even try and hide the grind. An average ev
  14. Have we done predictions yet? First - Aston Villa I've decided that John Terry will get them promoted. We've just let Stephen Taylor go (yes yes, I view everything through a prism of Ipswich Town Football Club) - I can understand why as he only has one working leg but in the few minutes he actually managed to play last year he made everyone else look so much better just by telling them what to do. In his last game his hamstring went, he was obviously in pain but he was still the guy keeping everyone together, telling them not to panic and just keep the ball until the bench w
