Advantages: they are exciting to watch
Disadvantages: they are lacking in form of late
Ipswich town have done very well since coming back into the Premiership a season ago. They did superb last season by securing a place in Europe after coming up from division one.
Ipswich do not have many top names in their squad but manage incredible well.
I feel the main reason for their success was because of their great manager George Burley and also with a little help from their goal machine Marcus Stewart who scored over 25 goals last season for the club.
This season they were lucky to get through to the second stage of Europe after drawing at home and just winning away, but the thing is they got there. They are lacking in the league because I feel it is hard to live up to expectations of last season and the Premiership has got harder.
They are also lacking because goals have been hard to come by of late, but Marcus Stewart seems to have found his touch again and Ipswich should do a lot better if they work as a team.
They made the signing of Finidi George which looks like a good signing at the moment, but they sold a quality player Richard Wright which is taking a step down. If you get ride of all your good players you are bound to struggle, but saying that they have signed a good replacement keeper Matteo Sereni.
I feel Ipswich will finish about 10th in the Premiership this season and will go out of the UEFA cup in the fourth round.
