What is it about East Anglian clubs there's only really 2 and both have or will become bug bearer's to Leeds again, we had it with Norwich for one reason or another and now where getting with Ipswich.

I don't know but it's frustrating, especially with Ipswich being one of my local teams. I wish they'd jump on their tractors and f**k off home!

Looks like Neil Harris is going to land back at Millwall, just in time for us to play 'em. Always a thorn in our side, that man!

Gotta be happy with the table now.
100% in our own hands.
Still a long way to go.
Bit by bit things are going our way for once👍
Ipswich still a puzzle though and saints wobble I didn't see coming.

You had Ipswich about 10th by now did you not Aus?

What’s your point baz?

21 Feb 2024 07:19:40
Aus : That little ole Ipswich continue proving so many doubters/ critics wrong ; still in top 3.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2024 09:58:35
Baz, I don't think there are any doubters re Ipswich; I argue and continue to argue that they won't make second, as do you. The difference being that I forecasted that when they were potentially 12 points ahead of us coming into the game at Elland Road. anyhow, it's a little immaterial now, given what has actually happened / is happening. I accept you forecasted them as 3rd at the beginning of the season [on what basis at that time is anyone's guess / probably yours as well! ]

The season is developing in a very interesting way. Leeds and [particularly] Southampton, made poor starts, whereas both Leicester both had incredible starts.

Did we have our "wobble" in December - let's hope so!
No doubt, Ipswich have had their wobble late December / January, and whilst they are getting back to form, they still ship a lot of goals.

Are Southampton and maybe Leicester about to have theirs?

Obviously, it is imperative that we build on the recent misfortune of our competitors this Friday.

21 Feb 2024 10:07:09
Ipswich will fade away in April, they’ve got much tougher opponents to play. Struggling to beat bottom of the league Rotherham doesn’t convince me at all. I still think the last few games will be a battle between Leeds, Southampton and yes Leicester!

Agree3 0Disagree

21 Feb 2024 10:51:20
Ani I like your summary build up to the crux end of season. a bit like the back cover of a novel 😀

But come on your ' Ipswich are gone ' proclamation definitely happened (way) AFTER they had lost to Leeds not before as you say.

Ipswich had lost only 2 matches prior to that Leeds match . best stats in Champo.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2024 10:57:10
Some people wwre stating Ipswich would fade away long ago

April is the last month of the season!

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2024 12:19:03
Baz Gonners do face a difficult April. OP is right. If we keep winning, nothing can stop us. Friday night is huge. I'd like to see Joseph start.

Agree4 0Disagree

21 Feb 2024 13:10:38
DF will keep same starting 11 Georgey

Ipswich finishing 2nd imo should not be discounted .25 % chance imo Leeds 40 % Saints 35%

People kept saying Leicester would fade away in 2016 yet they never did and won EPL.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2024 13:50:07
When we beat Ipswich at their er field I predicted they were rubbish. I said their defense was useless. Check out goals conceded.
Apart from Rotherham they are the worst Team out of about 10 I’ve seen this season.
They continue to strangely hang on. They can score goals. We all know that’s not a real recipe for success.
Winners are defenders.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Feb 2024 13:59:05
Baz, for absolutely accuracy in my suggestion that Ipswich has gone.

I said that a Ipswich has a real tough set of games, starting with our match with them [23rd December]. "This will define their season, "

After they drew with QPR [29th December[, I said they were "gone. " aka as 6 weeks ago.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Feb 2024 15:08:40
So yes Ani after Leeds match

And have those matches defined their season detrimentally? Nope.


Aus ; Ipswich are " rubbish"? Sure they have conceded more goals than Leeds and three or four other teams

But they lose the least of all Champo teams ;

Discounting them entirely . hmm . madness.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2024 15:59:27
Let's have it right, anyone who's watched Ipswich this season can see they're not the best. They ship goals left and right and they don't have a great team/ squad like the other 3 mentioned (us included) . Somehow they keep eeking our results (very lucky last night against a woeful team who've struggled to score all season) . There's not a cat in hells chance that will last all season based on their proclivity to concede. They don't pass the eye test at all for me.

Massive overachievers who've rode a momentum wave.

Agree2 0Disagree

21 Feb 2024 17:28:36
Not many games left for Ipswich to fade away

Just 13 out of 46

Just 4 defeats in 33 requires a lot of "luck"

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2024 22:30:22
I said last night was lucky, Baz. They are overachievers this season.
They don't pass the eye test for me at all. Conceding a lot then trying to outscore opponents is a recipe for disaster imo.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2024 23:33:09
Baz, I argue that Ipswich’s season has been (re) defined. Them and Leicester had unbelievable starts and according to most pundits couldn’t be caught, yet both Leeds have caught and passed them. Their form over the last 12 matches is on average 9th/ 10th (boosted by the latest improvement) .

They won 16 of their first 20 games and yet (with the recent improvement) , still only managed 4 from the next 12 (1 in 9) …you continue to defend “little ole Ipswich, ” but I doubt you would be so forgiving had Leeds had the same record over the last 12 games.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Feb 2024 21:52:23

An excellent performance by Rotherham. Deserved a point.

Both Ipswich and Saints defending and gks iffy . a promising development

They both though can score plenty of goals themselves.

Class no matter how they look mate because they just keep winning.

21 Feb 2024 07:12:19
First time Rotherham have scored more than two goals in a match this season. Could point to Ipswich’s defence not being that great. Hopefully better teams can exploit this going forward. I really don’t understand how they’ve done so well. When we stuffed them 4-0 at Elland Road, I thought they were as bad as any team we’ve played all season. 🤷🏼‍♂️.

Agree3 0Disagree

21 Feb 2024 07:17:55
How many have saints now conceded in the last 3-4 games. If you look up the word “wobble”, it’s this year’s Saints team photo! That said, it’s far from over. Tractors keep pulling results from the jaws of defeat, and as bad as S’ton are right now, they have shown what they are capable of over the last 6months. We MUST maintain our momentum, and build a gap while the opportunity is there.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Feb 2024 07:21:32
Indeed Whitey :

And Ipswich have the easiest remaining fixtures . they could easily finish 2nd.

100% agree, WD.

Sounds like you’re gunning for Ipswich to come second Baz?

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2024 19:31:38
Nope OP I think Ipswich will probably come 4th .

but it will be quite possibly very close between 2nd and 4th come May.

Good news that Saints lose again! 2 defeats in 3 games.

And Leeds superior gd ( worth a point that someone on here erronously disvalued) keeps them in 2nd top 2.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Feb 2024 22:10:13
They're so bad defensively and got a little lucky here. against Rotherham. Ipswich far less of a worry to me than Saints, but as long as we do our job it shouldn't matter anymore as it's in our hands once again!

We need to get the result on Friday now. A win against Leicester will really pee the other two off.

Out of interest…where did folks watch the respective matches?

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Feb 2024 23:20:20
Conceding 3 against Rotherham is abysmal tbh. Rotherham has scored the least goals in the league prior to this game.

Ipswich's defence rank joint 9th on the league but ha e comparable goals conceded to floundering teams like QPR, Millwall, Stoke. Insofar as saying, they're very close to being even further down that rankings defensively.

I'm not convinced at all by a defence such as theirs. They will drop plenty more points this season, in my humble opinion.

Mr Mountie Canada hmmm

but in all seriousness I look forward to your admission in May that you were indeed proved wrong if/ when goal difference does indeed decide 2nd place

A huge slice of humble pie awaits you with lashings of your Canadian maple syrup lol 😏☺.

Baz, if we are second on goal difference at the end of the season, and Canada has to eat humble pie, how much humble pie are you eating for predicting we were more likely to be relegated than promoted this season?!

Agree3 0Disagree

21 Feb 2024 07:13:38
Brockers
that was said early pre season in gest muxed with disgust specifically in response to the R loan clause fiasco apparent for so many LUFC players

When Leeds signed quite a few good new players and didn't lose quite so many key players keeping CS, DJ, WG and GR my end of summer window official prediction of playoffs 6th place thoroughly documented fella

But more than delighted to eat tray loads of humble pie if it means Leeds are promoted . promotion is essential!

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2024 07:21:23
Lol Brockley!
I was only watching the live text on the BBC (old school, me! ) , but the stats suggested Rotherham gave Ipswich the run around, and Hull were more than worthy of their victory too. All good stuff.
Now let’s slay dem Foxes!

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2024 09:53:19
Exactly Baz, a prediction you made that is very wrong, based on your very wrong reading of the situation at the time and your very incorrect belief about how things would pan out. Just because you were so wrong, doesn’t mean it doesn’t count or didn’t happen.

If somebody else made that prediction you wouldn’t let it go, and would tediously put it in response to every post they make ever again (thank god OP didn’t make that prediction) .

People in glass houses etc.

21 Feb 2024 10:36:45
Oh Donald try reading posts, what you were told was don't worry about GD as we don't need massive wins.
We had a better GD than Soton and a much better one than Ipswich when behind both in points. Anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of mathematics would understand when we caught them up it would be even better and it is!
We know your maths knowledge isn't the best as when blatantly wrong you claim to be 90% right 😆.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Feb 2024 11:02:43
1) No Brockers it was a statement " made IN GEST and DISDAIN".

2) But yes the situation has panned out better than expected.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2024 11:49:32
Canada at the time of your post 3 games ago Leeds GD was only a very narrow plus 4 better than Southampton ( just a meagre 2 goal swimg ) .

Thanks to Leeds winning fairly big ( 4 nil, 3 nil, 2 nil ) as I stated was needed in past 3 games it has now risen to plus 10

Leeds now need to keep it at this level because a convincing Saints win against Leeds 3 nil would wipe out +6 GD for starters.

Rotherham are really poor tonight, apart from the shock lead it’s been all Ipswich but Hull 2-0 up at saints and nearly had a third…. long way to go though as we know!

Not at all Aussie

Lasr match went wrong . it happens

But still Bazball under captain Ben Stokes 62 % win percentage in test

A better win percentage than Aussies under captains Benaud, Chappell, Hughes ( now that's a real loser Aussie team🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣) Border, Taylor, Smith, Cummins etc etc

Come on England 😎.

Morning All,

So another huge game on Friday night and a chance to close the gap to the leaders to only 6 points. Although we'd also be doing Southampton and Ipswich a huge favour by beating Leicester, in my opinion a Leeds win would turn what is currently a 3-horse race for 2nd place into a 4-horse race for 2nd and 1st.

A bold statement to make but I believe that if we beat Leicester we will go up as champions! All of our rivals have shown weakness in recent weeks but we are going from strength to strength. I think we looked a little tired at Plymouth but that's understandable with the number of games played and distance travelled in recent weeks. Hopefully with a good rest this week we will be firing on all cylinders come Friday night.

I do expect Southampton/ Ipswich to win their games in-hand, so let's not get to down about dropping back to 3rd.

This is in our hands, if we keep winning we will go up and won't have to worry about the evil that is the play-offs.

MOT.

20 Feb 2024 10:00:33
Spot on Danny!
Only bit I may disagree with, is Saints winning their game in hand tonight. It does depend on which Hull turn up, but I can see a score draw this evening for them.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Feb 2024 11:18:41
I hope so mate. Any dropped points from any of our rivals from this point forward will be vital.
