‘Now that’s a good side’ – These Ipswich fans react to starting line-up for Sunderland clash



The Kieran McKenna era begins at Ipswich Town on Monday – and John McGreal couldn’t have asked for a much tougher game to end his temporary spell as manager.

Visiting Portman Road are Sunderland – a team who a month ago put the Tractor Boys to the sword on home soil and the Suffolk side are hardly in a good run of form to turn that around.

Paul Cook was sacked two weeks ago following a draw in the FA Cup second round against League Two Barrow, and the caretaker manager in the meantime – ex-Ipswich defender John McGreal – didn’t do much to boost confidence.

Quiz: What club do these 20 ex-Ipswich Town strikers play for now?

McGreal lost out in his first game against Charlton before picking up a valuable point on the road against Wigan Athletic before the club crashed out of the FA Cup against Barrow in the replay this week.

The highly-regarded McKenna though arrived at Ipswich earlier this week though to be Cook’s successor but he will not take charge for this match as he only officially takes up the role at the start of next week.

It appears that McGreal has gone with a 4-4-2 formation with James Norwood and Macauley Bonne partnering each other – a duo that is clearly exciting some fans and there’s also a return for Wes Burns on the right flank after five matches out.

Let’s see what Town supporters are saying on social media about how the ex-defender has set his side up this afternoon for the visit of the Black Cats.
