  1. Bogle has to do that. Can’t moan. Team red card if ever I saw one. Pat on the back for him from me.
  2. I saw us linked with Andy King. He’d be a great signing and an improvement on bryson. We do need a right back, maybe a loan, kenny from Everton or Walker pieters from Spurs? Simpson from Leicester maybe.
  3. Has to be a right back. Whilst bogle has been playing great it’s unreasonable to expect him to play all season and it is currently the only position we don’t have decent like for like cover (not wisdom, too defensive). Options could be Walker-Peters at Spurs, Danny Simpson from Leicester, Mason Holgate or Jonjoe Kenny both at Everton. All decent attacking fullbacks who I don’t think are getting game time. Fredericks would be good but he seems to be around the team.
  4. I can understand why we stuck with the front 3 after United and Brentford but I agree we looked tired and out of ideas at times. Waghorn needs to start, his movement was good when he came on and ultimately he created the space for the goal and then provided the assist. Lawrence or Flo Jo in for Bennet who was very poor tonight, not sure what was up with him, looked lacklustre and wasn’t his usual all action self. His positional play as a winger was poor tonight as well, think he needs a rest and may be better as an impact sub. Plenty of positives, Johnson looked good again, Bryson improving, Keogh very good I thought and malone (although tired at the end) looked a pacier/better crossing version of Forsyth. Mount is brilliant and once Bogle sorts out his crossing we’ll have a hell of a right back,
  5. I see your point, I have a slightly different view/understanding but I can absolutely see where you’re coming from. Let’s hope they all get sold, Waghorn bags 20 goals and Abraham moves to villa and scores 1 goal (against forest) and costs them a couple of million. 🍻
  6. But they are assets, everything you own has a value on your accounts which helps with financial FairPlay. And of those 4 players you mentioned 2 have been on loan and we have received loan fees and a percentage of their wage paid. Also we will of course receive a fee if we sell any of those players. The house analogy is greatly simplified I agree but the basics behind it run true. Will Waghorn be a success? I certainly hope so and I think he should be given the chance. After all he was involved in more goals than any other player in the championship last season and scored and assisted a lot of goals in a low scoring Ipswich team. He has been picked specifically by our management team not just because he is available for loan from a team that a lot of them are connected to but because they think he is the best player available for the role. Perhaps I’m an optimist but I’ll be backing him and our other strikers rather than pining after a player who is so good he couldn’t get a move to the prem, the bundesliga, la liga, serie A etc..
  7. That’s not how it works though. We own Waghorn and therefore he is an asset. Abraham would be in loan and therefore would be worth nothing to us. If you buy a house for £100,000, you have £100,000 in assets. If you instead rent a nicer house with high monthly rent payments for a year at the end of the year you have nothing... but you have spent money on a nice house...
  8. I like what Frank is trying to do possession wise. The fans need to give it time. They were constantly on the defenders back yesterday when they passed it backwards or shifted it across, I think this booing/sighing indirectly lead to Keogh and Tomori overplaying when a sideways pass was on, resulting in an opportunity for Ipswich. I though Derby worked the ball around well and with a bit more movement from midfield, both towards the ball to colllect it, or away from the ball, to make space for other players and a bit more patience we should see more of mount/Bryson/Lawrence etc... on the ball in the final 3rd. This seems to be the end game but it won’t happen overnight though and people need to accept that.
