No I am not being naive, I can understand the football divide. Does it go back to history, ie the Northfolk and the Southfolk and is in our genes? Is it the way local media coverage always seems to favour our Norfolk neighbours , or government money seems to be spent on improving Norfolk roads and not the Suffolk routes to such an important port...Felixstowe. Perhaps all of this incurs the wrath? That should open a debate in electoral year? In football history terms there is only one winner and that is Ipswich Town, a late starter as a professional team compared to our Norfolk neighbours, that is why so many from North Suffolk support Norwich, but as Division 1 winners (equivalent to Prem winners) FA Cup winners, UEFA Cup winners and providing England with two Managers, a Scotland Manager and having a former Ireland manager now in charge we deserve to feel proud of our team and history.
If we don't pick an attacking team against Blackpool, then we deserve to lose the game and our chance of a play off place. Our defence should be man enough to stand up to do their own jobs without the midfield having to do it for them at the sacrifice of serving our attackers. Time for the midfield to demand the ball from the back, score or make chances for the front runners?
Do we pick a team to go for it, to win, even if we let goals in, no time for a a draw a point in the pocket is no good any more. Go for it Mick, pick a team to delight, set PR alight, if we go down blazing well that will be alright. But to sit back and defend one nil is a cardinal sin, that has blighted a good season, go forth with swagger and force in the dagger. WIN, WIN, WIN, WIN,WIN.
Clubs get kids at a very young age now...why are they not taught to use both feet, be taught to head/chest, pass and move? Why do we have professional players said to be playing in a square peg position, unless it's centre forward at right back? Pace is the answer, that is natural and can't be taught. Get pace in your team, teach kids with pace to learn to use both feet, defend, head and chest and shoot.
What a difference when the defence is sound and then midfielders score to earn us 6 points from two consecutive games. Great performance on Saturday by all at ITFC, supporters, MM selection and substitutions, and Skues looked real class in that game.
re:McGoldrick poem Great to have some fun rhetoric on here. We are poets and know it and know how the Town tick ME gives money to clowns who are so thick that they waste it on players that don't click He hits on a winner and gives him nowt perhaps it's ME that we now doubt?
The introduction of Bruu and Varney for the second half got us the win against a Bolton side that squandered 3 guilt edge chances. Skues outstanding throughout came close to getting his first goal for the club before the hard working Tabb grabbed those so important 3 points.
