The derby is this weekend and I'll be hoping for a good Ipswich win.
Do I really have to explain that I disagree? Probably not! I am very concerned, to be honest, despite having had by far the best of it over the last few years, It could be a disaster. Earnshaw should make his debut... I'm hoping for a Leon McDouble style entrance...
I won't disagree with you though that Norwich have a better team, we are pretty banged up as well, especially in strikers.
Hopefully Ipswich will win for local reasons. Don't think they will though. Going to have to go with a home win i'm afriad
Fantastic victory for Ipswich. Hopefully this jump starts them. Promotion places? Dunno. But we are above Norwich now at least.
1 nil and you fvcked it up 1 nil and you fvcked it up....
Another victory- 2-1 against Burnley.
They may look a little too far away, but I think we could mount a challenge for the promotion places. But if anything, we are still ahead of the Canaries.
It was a great win. Keeps the momentem going. The play offs are still a long way off but who knows, if they get a great run going then they have a chance
Up the tractor boys
The difference is the past years in playoffs where we've failed, we've usually played well enough all year that we deserved to be 1 or 2. but we didn't. Now we have the momentum. Good for the Tractor Boys. Jimmy Juan has been truly a great player for us, and somehow, we are scoring enough even though Bowditch, Parkin and others are injured and we lost the Bents.
It will be difficult for me though if they are promoted...Ipswich were the first team I liked, but now I am Evertonian through and through. Oh well, we will have to beat them I guess.
But first things first Ipswich has to maintain their run.
Who is that masked man?
Whatever happened to Bowditch? Seems to have really struggled over the past few months after such a bright start to his career.
Gone to Wycombe on a 3 month loan deal
It was supposed to be his break out year but it never happened for him.
Didn't he score an hat-trick as a 17 yo?
Yep he scored a hatrick against Watford at just 17. hasn't really been used alot since then, Joe Royal probably though best to keep his feet on the floor but this year was supposed to be his year to shine but he hasn't
I was disappointed at him too...I think some Prem teams were interested in him earlier this year.
What do you guys think of Joe Royle? I think he's a quality coach...and an Evertonian!
He's done a great job whereever he has been
Got Oldham promoted to the top flight and kept them there for about 3 years. He got Everton into the top 6 and won them the FA cup, He took over Man City in division too and got them promoted in consecutive seasons to the premiership.
Anyone who knocks BFJ is bonkers. When you looked what he has put up with: nearly 2 teams worth of players shipped out, what he has done is amazing. We came within a hair of getting back into the EPL twice with one or two cash signings.
whew! Beat the Foxes and now only 5 points outside a playoff spot. But Preston has 2 games in hand - so it's worse than it looks. If Preston just lost their 22 game unbeaten streak how are the only 5 points ahead of us? Did they draw 22 games? What gives?

Play offs still look unlikley but if the winning form continues then you never know. Good win yesterday.
Don't like that goal difference though. :-/
Ok, so we're 5 points behind PNE for the playoff spot. They have 2 games in hand. One of which is...
Against Ipswich on Saturday.
Big big game....
Considering all the players Ipswich have lost they've done rather well this year.
When do you think Juan will be back...IMO he's been our best player this year.
well that was a let down- frozen pitch- gee England gets cold.
After Liverpool- Ipswich is my second team (which is why I had mixed emotions when we won 6-0 or whatever it was in the last premiership game)
For a re-building year they aren't going too bad, how must those idiots who left to go to a premier league club like Sunderland, was it Miller and Davis?, feel- they are going to be straight back down playing in the CCCL next year again.
Does Ipswich want them back?
That game against Liverpool was cool in strange kind of way. There was letter to the Liverpool echo about it praising the Ipswich fans. I was there; Ipswich losing 5-0 at home, and nobody, I mean nobody, left the ground until Owen scored to make it 6-nil in the 90th minute. Full house as well. Then, and only then, did people leave. The letter to the Liverpool echo praised the Ipswich fans for their loyalty.
