Ipswich fans mock Norwich after seeing Canaries get battered at Plymouth

Ipswich Town fans didn’t waste time taking to mock Norwich City after seeing the Canaries get battered at Plymouth Argyle on Saturday.

A video has emerged online of the Tractorboys fans in the course, with the scores coming in on the TV screen, to which they see rivals Norwich being thrashed in their game at Home Park.

Ipswich then proceed to sing “Norwich get battered, everywhere they go!” with their own side going on to win 4-3 in quite the thriller at Portman Road.

Morgan Whittaker scored a hat-trick in a crushing win for Argyle on Saturday afternoon, a result no one saw coming in truth.

The promoted side had the points all-but wrapped up by half time after storming into a 4-0 lead through a brace from Whittaker with further goals from Dan Scarr and Finn Azaz – two of them coming in stoppage time.

It seems that some of those in the away end weren’t taking the scoreline well, with a Norwich fan getting escorted out of the ground, as can be seen in the video above.

Plymouth’s Steven Schumacher:

“I thought we played really well and I spoke earlier in the week about how our performance on Tuesday didn’t look like us. It’s been a while since we had a performance like Tuesday and we felt we could do something about it. It wasn’t a hard fix really. It was just about putting in a bit more effort and obviously getting people in the right positions and doing the basics right.

“When we get that right as a team we always look a threat and so I was really pleased with the reaction from the lads. We knew that the speed that we have got up top would cause their centre-backs problems. What pleased me the most was the understanding of what we were trying to do and then the execution of it was brilliant.”

Norwich’s David Wagner:

“It was a disappointing result and a horrible afternoon for us. I am very angry about how we responded after we conceded the first goal which was an offside situation. For the second goal we didn’t do our job in the wall when they had two players on the ball, and after the two goals unfortunately we totally lost our heads and this is something that should not happen. Then we conceded four counter-attack goal -because we lost our heads we played in spaces where we shouldn’t play.

“We have been quite solid at the back in the past and haven’t looked vulnerable on the counter-attack and today was totally the opposite and this is something that is not good enough. We lost our heads after the first two goals and conceded a deserved heavy defeat because of it. We wanted them to win the second half and make it better but we conceded two further counter-attack goals in the transition. This game is quite easily explained, and the players are smart enough they know exactly what went wrong and we will show them again and discuss this. This can’t happen. Football is a game of mistakes but you can’t lose your head.”

Ipswich’s Kieran McKenna:

“It was obviously a thrilling game. I don’t think many of us will have seen or have been involved in too many open games. It was really open at times and we scored four but we could have scored many more goals, they scored three and could have added another one. A thrilling game, I think one we need to really enjoy and enjoy in the moment.

“Lots of good things in the performance, lots of things to learn, things to improve but the quality of the players, the spirit, the effort was there for all to see and I think we deserved the three points. We have got a real belief in how we play and how we work and our fitness levels and there’s a real belief around to just keep just doing the right things irrespective of the scoreline or the setbacks. We have shown a real good capacity to move onto the next moment to try and get back on the ball and try and create chances.”

Blackburn’s Jon Dahl Tomasson:

“We knew it was going to be tough coming to Ipswich who have an excellent home record and have started extremely well in the Championship. Probably our first half cost us the game, we were not quick enough on the ball, not playing quick enough, not moving quick enough. I think coming into the second half the guys showed a great mentality, resilience and had a good performance.

“It’s tough scoring three goals away and you don’t get a result but all credit for the boys for the second half and all those traveling fans who were behind the team. We probably could have scored six or seven goals as well if you look at the chances. It was an open game for each team but coming here and creating that amount of chances was really positive. But I knew it was going to be a tough game and we saw that.”
