DAVID Wright today said that the talking has to stop.
The Ipswich full back was a goalscoring hero when Ipswich Town thrashed Bristol City 6-0 at home last month.
Last night their abysmal away form continued with a 2-0 Coca-Cola Championship defeat against the West Country side at Ashton Gate.

And Wright says that something has to be done about the huge gulf between Ipswich's home and away performances.
He said: "Instead of talking about putting things right we have got to go out there and do it.

"We have got to show courage both individually and collectively or there is a danger we will throw away what we have got going for us at home.
"Now is the time to do something about our failings away from Portman Road - before it is too late.
"The game at Charlton on Saturday gives us this chance."
Wright confirmed that the whole squad is feeling the pain.
He added: "We are at the end of our tether, and we are all absolutely gutted.
"What we have to do is stay together and get through this. We need to show some bottle.
"It is all so frustrating, and we were all left absolutely gutted again. In fact, too bad to fully explain in a family newspaper."
Town were two goals down inside 32 minutes with Marvin Elliott driving in an unmarked 25-yard effort and then Bradley Orr converting a penalty after Alex Bruce, who later went off with a groin injury, conceding a soft handball penalty.
They controlled most of the second period and had enough chances to have won.
"We played better in the second half and could have scored, but it was too late by then," Wright continued.
"The first minute is when the game starts and this is when we have got to start to play - not start popping the ball around in the last 45 minutes."
Ipswich have collected a paltry four points away from home in their travels this season and have now gone 14 games since they last picked up three points away from Portman Road.
After the visit to the Valley at the weekend, Jim Magilton's side will be out to make it up the table when they then play three consecutive home matches before Christmas.
At Portman Road this campaign they have dropped just two points.
