    Agreed. The epitome of average in an unadventurous and stagnating Ipswich team who suit his languid style down to the ground. We can all see exactly what he does, and that he still fulfills his limited and relatively undemanding role adequately.
  2. This is a four horse playoff we can win

    Magnússon, or more likely ANO. Hörður was reportedly close to moving to Rostov in both the last 2 windows, interest also from Serie A apparently, and although he's featuring more, through necessity, he doesn't seem much closer to really breaking through and making a place his own since. He's 25 now and I doubt he'll be satisfied as a bit part understudy too much longer and unfortunately (imo.) I'm not sure LJ sees him being here long term anyway.
  3. Engvall to Djurgårdens IF?

    Never again, surely, after the way their fans treated Akinde. Plymouth if they stay down, Exeter if they come up possibly.

    Hörður walked off in the end. It's the refs. decision, and his alone, to stop the game - either for a head injury, or an injury he considers serious. Hörður's injury wasn't deemed as serious enough by the ref. to stop play, so he rightly allowed the game to continue. For a manager to then instruct a player to go against the advice of the F.A. to referees and all cubs, that being that the players should play to the whistle and not take decisions into their own hands by kicking the ball out, is not only wrong but very irritating to many supporters. It doesn't matter if it was one of our players down on this occasion. It's a competitive game, get on with it unless the ref's whistle dictates otherwise.

    My suspicion, based on his spells with us, is Baker may well have a long term weakness that needs to be managed. It means he will probably miss half a dozen games a season, plus of course at least 3 more through ill discipline. Fine player though he is when fit and on form, you can almost guarantee him missing a large chunk of every season, and coming off half way through 2 or 3 other games too. He's only played over 30 games in a season 3 times in an 8 year career, and never more than 36. Contrast and compare with Flint, for instance, who missed only 2 league games in 3 consecutive seasons up to this one, with 46, 44 &46 apps. Baker's recurring lack of availability may be one reason Villa were prepared to allow him to leave.
  6. This is a four horse playoff we can win

    I think the opposite, that Baker downs tools when he gets a niggle to insist on being subbed off in situations where other players might play on. We saw it several times during his loan and we've seen it again recently. Either that or he has a recurring injury known to both himself and the club which needs to be managed and they have an understanding he will simply sit down as soon as he feels it and a change will be made.
  7. Positives v Ipswich

    Basically a complete non event bar the goal, and it was bloody freezing! The only good moment was the goal, without that one chance to rise from my freezing seat it would have been a very depressing day at AG.
  8. This is a four horse playoff we can win

    I think we may need them when we come up against teams capable of getting more than 2 shots on target like Burton and the ever unadventurous Ipswich. Though consecutive clean sheets are very welcome, the defence hasn't exactly been massively tested in the last 2 games. Baker, as you say, is unreliable and seems to be more unwilling than some to play through niggles; Flint and Bryan though will be straight back in as soon as they are available. Rightly so, they are experienced at this level and proven to be 2 of our best and most reliable players.
  9. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Mmmm, didn't hear any mention of that on RB after I got home, just loads of excuses and fawning sympathy for Dopey.

    Passed the Hoskin screeching test, that's probably all we need to know.

  12. Renewed or not renewed. Please post here

    Not directly affected but still not renewed, and still very much undecided. Tbh, the disgraceful treatment of @Harry by some fellow City fans has disappointed me almost as much as the unacceptable and overbearing attitude from the club. I've always felt I was surrounded at AG by like minded fellow City fanatics who were as one; now it appears a new breed may have infiltrated and usurped them. If I don't renew - and I'm wavering for the first time in 48 years - I doubt I'll go much at all. Being used to having a ST and therefore not really thinking about the individual match price, the prices for POTD are off putting afaic.
  13. Protest Vs Ipswich - Sneaky & Dirty - I’m Out At 30

    With you Harry, and maybe a loud rendition of the above by S82 on 29 minutes as the catalyst to the walk out?
  14. Statement from Jon Lansdown + SC&T reply

    In the absence of any better ideas I'll go with this. Make the point very visibly for 15 minutes then full noise immediately the 2nd half starts.
  15. Statement from Jon Lansdown + SC&T reply

    I wouldn't have gone and would never have got hooked. Young fans want to be as close as possible to the action and atmosphere, not in a special rarified location the maximum distance away they could possibly be. Put the first couple of rows all the way round the ground aside for youngsters. The other thing is, when did it become necessary for children to be accompanied by an adult to gain entry to the ground, and why?
