"I don’t enjoy watching us. I feel sorry for our fans watching on iFollow"

Paul Cook provided an honest and frank assessment following Town's goalless draw against AFC Wimbledon this afternoon.

Dai Cornell saved a penalty in the first half, with a deflected free-kick from Andre Dozzell being the closest that Blues went at the other end, the ball clipping the top of the crossbar. 

"The first half performance is possibly - and I’ve been around football for a long time - as bad as I’ve ever seen one of my teams play," Paul told iFollow Ipswich

"We don’t win any contacts on a pitch, we don’t win any second balls. We don’t show any fight or desire to win. We think we can just turn up and play.

"I find it baffling. I have the privilege of managing the club, the players have the privilege of playing, yet we can turn up and basically put a non-performance in.

"I don’t want to say too much because it’s getting to that stage where it’s a little bit pointless.

"In the second half, I thought we were honest. We kept going and at least we created a couple of chances. Young Dobs [Armando Dobra] came on and gave us a lift, purely by being energetic and wanting to play football.

"You watch us in hope. I’ve never watched a team in hope, I’ve always watched a team and believed.

"I don’t enjoy watching us. I feel sorry for our fans watching on iFollow."
