Any tips or "must-sees" in Orlando?
at 14:07 14 Apr 2015

I know there was a thread on here long ago about someone going to Orlando, Florida and there was a fair few opinions/hints/tips but I can't seem to find the one I remember but there are a few other smaller threads.

I'm off there on 23rd April (next Thursday) and I was just wondering if anyone had any recommendationss of things to do, or things I should do/buy/book before we go (excluding hotel, transfers and flights obviously)

Its just me and the girlfriend for 11 nights (is that long enough?!?). We are staying on International Drive near Seaworld but we don't have a hire car so will just use the transport there (the hotel has a shuttle to most of the main parks.)

I was just wondering if there is any "must-do" parks/attractions, and if there are any other less obvious things we should see/go to?

Meltdown alert!
at 16:25 7 Feb 2015

This site is gonna be unbearable tonight if we get nothing from this game!

We have been playing out of our skins, to our maximum and now we aren't and are losing. We all would have expected at least 3 points (if not more!) from Wigan and Rotherham!

There is always one team who is near the top and ends up dropping a lot! I really hope that isn't us! However in this form we are going nowhere! We have some hard away games left this season so we need to be getting points from these games!
I would just like to publicly thank
at 14:43 10 Nov 2014

I would just like to publicly thank all those season ticket holders (especially Textbackup (sorry I didn't get your actual name!) who got 2 tickets for me) who went out their way to give us non-ST holders £10 tickets for Saturday's game!

I know some people don't like us "part-timers" going to games but the atmosphere was decent!

A very entertaining game to watch with the right result!

5 wins in a row
at 06:44 30 Sep 2014

Not sure if it's already been said but the last time we did it (from flicking through the soccerway website) was in October 2003:-

Rotherham (h) 2-1
Bradford (a) 1-0
Burnley (h) 6-1
Stoke (h) 1-0
C.palace (a) 3-4. (Personally one of the best "normal" games I have seen!)

I hope we do it tonight! We are certainly due 5 in a row! Confidence must be high and Williams joining must be a bit of a boost as well!

Strange the difference a month makes! I feel a bit sorry for smith but since chambers has move inside we seem to be more solid at the back! I have only seen the Wigan game but I'm presuming in the other games we look more solid? Also scoring 2 goals a game is helping us at the moment. ;)

Come on you blues!!
at 12:49 23 Aug 2014

We seem to cr@p ourselves every time grabban, Redmond or hoolahan get on the ball! Need to get tight on these players so they can't turn!
So the goal was a mess-up from McGoldrick?
at 00:09 17 Aug 2014

Just reading the report and it seems like the goal was a McGoldrick cock-up? I have not seen it, so I'm not sure how bad it was. However from the report it sounds like he is at fault?

So how come there is not one thread slating him this evening? If this was say Hyam, Tabb, Nouble etc, there would be numerous threads slating them!

However, I'm not having a go, I haven't even seen it so maybe it isn't as bad as it reads, I just find it very strange that certain players can get away with big mess ups and other players get slated?
It's going to be a long game..................
at 11:57 26 Apr 2014

Not due to the teams playing, just because of Sky sports presenters/commentators.

A good start saying Burnley were favourites for relegation but they got promoted..................I don't think people thought they would go down!
Ipswich Town England XI
at 14:19 23 Apr 2014

On the Ipswich Town Football Club facebook page they have done an "Ipswich Town England XI"

It is made up of "players to have worn the Blue of Town and the white of the national side" Now, i'm guessing it means the "main" England team, not under 16s level etc.

There are some amusing suggestions (I.e. WIckham & Reuser) but I had to stop reading the Comments when I read "John Wark! Where is he?" haha
Manager of the year
at 08:36 18 Apr 2014

There was an interesting discussion on talk sport about manager of the year for the premier league.

Despite not particularly liking Pulis when at stoke, he has done a fantastic job at palace getting them to 40 points with 4 games left especially as they were on 4 points (after about 10 games?) when he took over! I thought they were going down!

The other obvious one is Rodgers at Liverpool! Again fantastic job taking them from 7th to title contenders and they play some lovely football and are very entertaining!

Others I would say is maybe Steve Bruce as hull look safe and are in a cup fina and also Martinez has done a brilliant job at Everton, though I think they will be 5th now they slipped up the other day!

I think the consensus is it is between Rodgers and pulis and probably comes down I if Liverpool win the league or not! I just hope if they don't, the award doesn't go to Mourinho or Pellegrini!

Any other contenders thoughts?
What are the chances of a tunnicliffe goal today?
at 08:43 15 Mar 2014

After being here and missing a few sitters, what are the chances of him scoring today?

Does he even start? I'm guessing by watching Wigan last weekend that he won't!
Let's be realistic
at 18:09 8 Mar 2014

All the people moaning about the team must have high expectations! Away from home we generally play for a draw away from home, which is always a dodgy tactic especially when we aren't winning at home!

We have lost our main striker and not "replaced" him adequately so I think people need I get used to the "0" next to Ipswich over the next few weeks/months!

The only person who plays and scored more than 3 or 4 is Murphy and he's not prolific! Without goals we cannot win games!

I can see us sliding down the league a bit! I just hope we stay in the top half!

Let's be positive, we didn't lose 5-1 at home to Bolton!
Anyone watching the Madrid Derby
at 16:49 2 Mar 2014

Surely a better watch than Aston Villa v Norwich?!?

What a second goal from Athletico!
Share the Promotion tickets!
at 10:07 11 Feb 2014

I like to take advantage of ticket promotions as I am one who does state that the ticket prices are too high!

Unfortunately I have a wedding to go to on 1st March (I know, priorities and all that!), so I was just wondering if anyone wants to go on 1st March, but cannot go on 15th and therefore share the cost of the two tickets?
QPR transfers
at 09:48 1 Feb 2014

I was jut going through the transfers yesterday and did QPR sign 4 strikers on loan yesterday? All if which I'm sure are paying a big % of their massive wages!

These premier league parachute payments are a joke, or this owner is putting in a hell of a lot of money!

Their team wouldn't look out of place in the premier league, though if they get there, the players are mostly old so they will have to bring in a load of new faces anyway! There is a team not really building for the future, just the short term gain!

It would be funny if they didn't actually go up!

I know we are not of the same standard and don't have the power to get all these players but I like they way we are doing it within the FFP rules! It may take a few years but we are not risking it all to get to "the promise land"!

I'm sure we will soon see how these rules punish teams, and I hope it is strongly! Personally I dot think a transfer embargo is enough, some sort if points deduction would stop it as that's where it will hurt these teams!

I'm sure we will get some sort of loan or 2 in when the loan window opens again! Definitely a midfielder!
Anyone watching this forest game?
at 13:39 5 Jan 2014

From looking at forest we are nowhere near as good as them! I know we drew 0-0 but still! However it's all relative and we have a much smaller budget so it's not surprising we don't look as good anyway!

West ham are getting embarrassed here though! Their first team isn't that great but their reserves are truly awful! Even the first team players in this team have been very poor!it is a shame seeing them so bad ;)
Online ticket
at 10:46 31 Dec 2013

Is any1 having any problems logging on itfcdirect site?

I can log on but if I press on "home tickets" or even "away tickets" if just comes on with the "you are logged out" screen!

I can get into my account and click on stuff like membership and events but actually getting a ticket doesn't seem to work!

Hyam and skuse
at 00:22 4 Dec 2013

This was only my 2nd live game this season so I can't really comment on too much!

However, people have been slating hyam and saying skuse is brilliant over the last months.

However tonight, even excluding the goal, I thought hyam was better! Skuse set up 3 attacks for Blackburn by losing the ball or dilly dallying on it, instead of just having a shot or not being so slow!

Also just to add, I have not been a nouble fan going in reports and on the games I have seen plus the TV games, but despite never really looking like he would score, did work hard and chased a lot of things down and eventually got his reward!
Parking tonight
at 16:09 3 Dec 2013

I will openly admit I am a cheap stake and park over by Christchurch park when I come to games!

However tonight as it's going to be cold and I'm on my own, I was just wondering where I can park closer. I'm guessing car parks in the town aren't that much on a night game? (my first night game for about 8 years so forgive my lack of knowledge!)

I know gatwick will be a popular answer, I'm just hoping for some others!
Thicko question about tickets
at 18:48 2 Dec 2013

I'm off work tomorrow so I am looking at getting down to Ipswich for the game.

However I am flying back to England tomorrow (albeit from Northern Ireland) and if I get any delays I may not make it!

I was just wondering if the £2.50 saved on the gate is if a ticket is bought today, and as soon as it turns to Tuesday it's the extra £2.50 even if bought inline say tomorrow afternoon, or is it jut any ticket bought in advance?

If the former I may just have to pay the extra £2.50! Haha

Weather permitting I would rather go in the lower stand
