So, we lost to the MK Dons on penalties. So what? Ipswich have a dismal record in the league cup in any sponsor guise you care to mention. We can do without extra games. The championship is going to be tough this year and given we have a chance of a play-off place, insignificant runs in half-hearted trophies are to be avoided. What we cannot afford are injuries to key players.
I mean, well done to the MK Dons for beating us. But I’m far more encouraged that we have scored seven goals in two games at the start of the season than I am disturbed that we lost to lesser opposition. Beating Plymouth away at the weekend is far, far more important.
Can I ask, does anyone care about this cup competition? Even if they reach the latter stages?
