This week Woowoo61 is in the hot seat for the trip to Ipswich Town, having finally managed to get some tickets for his local away game.

Lonergan 6

He didn`t have too much to do really, his keeping was good but his distribution was shockingly poor.

Lees 7
He defended well, still tends to get turned when they cut inside onto his left foot , going forward the lads crossing was superb.

Kisnorbo 7
Solid performance

O`Dea 7
Solid performance , he is the new Kilkenny, he just doesn`t stop whinging about every decision.

White 6
The lad was solid and no way was his red card deserved. I thought it was a foul on him if anything.

Snodgrass 7
Snodgrass was lazy at times in the first half , but knuckled down and worked hard in the second half.

Howson 7
People who say the lad went missing, well he is playing in a more defensive roll at the moment. He worked hard allowing Clayton to push forward at times. good mature performance from the skipper.

Clayton 7
Was commanding in the first half and battled in defence when we went down to 10 men. A good combination with Howson.

Gradel 7
Max was Max as he worked hard. He was taken down in added time, which was a stonewall penalty. He then wanted to fight Nunez at the end.

McCormack 7
His first half performance was a right old mix with him scoring a header, a point blank save from another header from Stockdale and a poor header that wasn`t even near the goal. He should have had 3 in the first half. Brought off when White was sent off.

Keogh 8 Man of the match
The lad ran himself in the ground and he worked so hard for others. One criticism, he should have been greedier when he broke through at the end and tried to play Max in when the Ipswich defence parted like the red sea.
O`Brien 6
He did ok but for a guy with so much experience he gets turned so easy by playing to close to the forward.

Nunez & Sam
Both had good runs in a desperation move from Grayson.

This was a game that we should have had won by half time. The first half performance was outstanding, good movement and good chances created; McCormack`s goal was a classic move and a good header.

Sometimes I feel managers panic when they go down to 10 men. We had three centre half`s on the pitch. Why we didn`t go with three at the back and keep two upfront I don`t know. I feel we would have caused them more trouble by doing this.

One problem Grayson has to stamp out quickly is the problem between Gradel and Nunez. I am hoping that it was just down to disappointment and not anything else.

Fans were absolutely superb yet again , we certainly do have the best fans in football.

Grayson you really must make sure the players know this is the fact because only yourself and a couple of the players came over at the end and that was disappointing.

Thanks for your views Woowoo.
