Fans beginning to turn on Roy Keane as Ipswich record another home defeatby Mick Bates / 15 November 2010, 12:17Tweet
Barnsley recorded their second away win in 15 games as they played Ipswich Town at Portman Road at the weekend. The game ended 3-1 in the Tykes favour to give Ipswich their second defeat on the trot. The loss also meant that the Tractor boys have recorded as many losses at home so far this season as they did for the whole of the 2009/10 campaign. Throughout the game the disgruntled Ipswich home fans cheered every time that the visitors passed the ball successfully to show their frustration.
The Tractor Boys are not having the worst of seasons they are currently resting at 12th in the Npower Championship table and as the league is so tight they are just 3 points away from the play off spots. However, being an Ipswich fan is full of inconsistencies at the moment being up one week and down the next and gaining no forward momentum.
The yo-yo ness of the team has resulted in the teams second lowest attendance so far this season in the Tuesday night game home defeat against Derby. Whether this will result in Roy Keane being the next Championship manager to leave his post this season remains to be seen, according to bookmakers Victor Chandler he is around the 12/1 mark to go.
On top of the defeats Ipswich boss Roy Keane was blasted in the press this week by the former Ipswich captain Jon Walters for his management style and the axing of veteran club coaches Bryan Klug and Charlie Woods. The former skipper famously fell out with Keane prior to joining Stoke in the summer as the player tried to engineer his Town exit prior to the club agreeing a fee for the player.
