Ipswich Town home match reports from just another season-ticket holder

MATCH REPORTS BY SEASON

Ipswich Town 2 QPR 0

Well apparently I was wrong about Tuesday night's match, plenty of people have told me we were alright actually (but others seemed to agree with my disappointment, so I'm not going completely mad). Whatever the case, this afternoon suggests that those who thought the Charlton game showed us to be coming along nicely had a point. Because this was much better. When it was goal-less after an hour, ... More...

Ipswich Town 1 Charlton Athletic 1

Utter, utter garbage. It's hard to know where to start. Charlton fans spent much of the match mocking their own team's abject display, Ipswich fans spent it looking heavenwards in frustration, and the neutral supporter I brought with me said it was just the kind of game which makes you long for the warmth of your living room. Because it was freezing too. If you're here for the ... More...

Ipswich Town 2 Swansea City 2

Fourteen games, and fourteen different midfield starting lineups: and this one may be just about as bad as any we've suffered, as Jim flounders around searching for some semblance of solidity. At times you felt there might be a bunch of decent players in there struggling to work out what they were supposed to be doing, but it was fleeting. The fact is, we've played worse than this ... More...

Ipswich Town 3 Barnsley 0

Not sure what to make of this one. We got a far more sensible team selection than Saturday, and for periods of the match we tried to pass the ball around, so a big improvement in Jim's performance, for sure. Individually, the players' performances were unremarkable, but they were definitely better than the sum of their parts. The defence still looks worryingly shaky at times (and yet, as ... More...

Ipswich Town 1 Crystal Palace 1

Well, I'll say one thing for Jim, his recruitment policy, team selection and tactics are currently provoking more post-match discussion than I can recall having had for years. The simple and occasionally stylish display against Reading, and the semblance of a settled lineup over the past few league games, seemed to have arrested the declining support for his stewardship in the stands. But unfortunately, today's managerial display opened ... More...

Ipswich Town 2 Reading 0

Generally, a significant progression in the team's performance, which will have settled a lot of jitters around the club, I should think. Now we take our rightful place alongside the mighty Doncaster in the table, and there may be better to come. Reading were a decent enough team, but we were well worth the win. Both teams played the same sort of "pass-and-run it straight through the opposition" game: ... More...

Ipswich Town 2 Colchester Utd 1

Right, this nonsense has to stop. Home defeats in the league, an away victory in the league, and most unlikely of all, two League Cup wins. This is not my Ipswich at all! Having missed the first three games of the season at FPR, I was anxious to get my fix at last, and intrigued to see what another Summer Of Change had brought us. Compared to last ... More...

Ipswich Town 0 Wolves 2

Brendan Holmes writes: Well beaten again at home. This time it was more that Wolves were too good than we were particularly poor, however it is worrying that we were found wanting against one of the teams we should be competing with for promotion. Eubanks-Blake's difficult header was a goal I don't think any of our strikers would have scored, and it was as much as Wolves deserved ... More...

Ipswich Town 1 Preston NE 2

Stanway TractorBoy Snr writes: With last season producing one of the best home records in our history, several new signings, lots of pre-season wins, a new owner, and a goal up within 2 minutes, this was going to be a stroll in the park. Wasn't it? Hmm, perhaps not. In the first ten minutes, we created several good chances, Garvan was bossing the midfield, Lisbie and Haynes were making mazy ... More...
