It’s exciting times for Ipswich Town.

Saturday saw Mick McCarthy’s men twice come from behind to secure a valuable away point at second-place Bournemouth.
The Blues are fourth in the Championship table with more than a third of the season gone. An impressive 20 points from a possible 27 have been secured at Portman Road, while away points have been achieved at the likes of Derby (1st), Bournemouth (2nd) and Nottingham Forest (8th).
Home attendances are on the rise, more than 1,400 travelling supporters were at Dean Court at the weekend, while more than 2,000 away tickets have already been sold for Town televised match at Charlton (12.15pm).

See below for what was said during today’s live lunchtime webchat.

  • Had this been last season we would have lost. Probably by the odd goal. It's nice to hear other clubs Manager's moaning about how we play. As it they are not moaning it means they are winning. Anyone remember Wimbledon when they were in the top league. Not exactly pretty was it? But they got results. While I'm not suggesting we are a team of hard men who can only belt the ball up field you have to have a setup which compliments the players available and that's exactly what MM and TC have done. As has been said we need another striker to compliment and support M & M. This will probably only happen if we are still in the top half dozen come January. On this occasion I do feel that ME will come up trumps given that the need is there and we can push for promotion.

  • SB if Bournemouth were classes above, how come they couldn't beat us at home? As for Ipswich not being a Premiership side, well we are not, we are playing in the Championship. When we get promoted obviously we will adjust for that. But at present I think more than half our players could hold their own in the Premiership, and others are improving all the time.

  • Definite similarities to the last promotion season. MickMa has the pedigree. Any insider news on Dave McGoldrick's contract negotiations Stuart?

  • Last year was Murph's first proper pre-season, following his permanent move. He looks leaner& faster, now complementing his undoubted skill, and looks much happier playing down the middle rather than being stuck out on the wing. Combine that with McGoldrick's creativity and it's a pretty lethal combination. We need reinforcements up front though, as can't risk it all blowing up with injuries at the wrong time.

  • It's great to see Town not battling away at the bottom ........but we are so far away from being a Premiership side. Bournemouth were classes above.

  • I couldn't get to the Bournemouth game, but was impressed with them last season & they look like they've improved further. Good to see a young English Manager doing well, though sounds like he likes a bit of a moan about our "rough-house" tactics. The good big 'uns can play a bit too tho, just look at that fantastic header by Murph. A great result and hope we can get all 3 points at Charlton
