    The best summary I have read is that someone pushed the Keegan button. I'd love it... If this continues.

    For anyone not keeping count we should now have had 4 penalties and be playing against 8 men. And you just know we’ll lose to an 89th minute penalty given for nothing.

    The best worst goal ever. I love a calamitous fuck up at the back. Doubly so when we’re on the benefiting side.

    We need to sort out the defence.

    What a shit ref. Rodriguez handballed it twice into the net. Shit goalkeeping too.

    Was disappointed to see such a late equaliser pop up on my notifications.

    :-(

    And that was a bit of an anomaly. Most teams go down with high 30s/low 40s.

    And that's how shit you are. It's such a tightly packed league, a couple of wins on the bounce and you jump a fair few places. You'd need three wins on the trot just be third bottom.

    With goal difference, we're effectively 9 points away from safety.

    Apparently the club is for sale. Only £35m. We don't own the ground. Also the buyer needs to pay off £100m debt. Line on up

    I'm starting to wonder if we'll have to settle for playoffs this season

    It's really sad. I've got a real soft spot for Ipswich. I used to live with a guy who was a proper Mr Club Shop. He always wears a bit of Ipswich gear even if it's just a pair of socks.

    Seems like a lifetime ago (it was) that we were up half the night making banners for the playoff final.

    I remember when they got into Europe with goalscorer Marcus Stewart and there was a big hoo ha over you guys signing Finidi George.

    Finidi was only 47, too. We got him in his prime

    Anyhoo, this has been brewing for at least 8 years. It isn't Hurst's doings alone, the lack of investment in the club over the years, and the resistance to admit the football world has moved on, living by the Financial Fair Play rules a few years before they came in "Because other teams will get penalised".

    We haven't won a cup game for 9 seasons. Any cup. Any resources there are, stretch thin just to stay in the second tier, on spending limits imposed after Roy Keane left. Where everyone else pretty much spends more, we have spent less.

    Fans seem to think we are going to be competitive in League One. Fuck knows why, we've got League Two players (literally, that's where they came from)

    Top of the league, six point gap to third. Oh baby.

    We’ll still fuck it up though.

    QPR, Millwall and Rotherham were the few sides I looked at the start of the season with any sort of realistic chance of points.

    QPR dicked us today. Rotherham and Millwall next home games. Woohoo

    @Zomoniac What's it like watching attacking football? The difference between Dean Smith and Steve Bruce is night and day.

    @Jono62 it's great! Would be better if we had a decent goalscorer though. We make huge numbers of chances every game. Roofe needs about 15 chances to score, though if he keeps doing so in the last 30 seconds I'm willing to let it slide.

    Wasn't that his only shot in the match?
