Forum Thread Just watched today's U21 game. at 20:43 9 Mar 2014 Very impressive performance from a young side, with 2 good goals - Hammond's run for the 1st was superb. We seemed to tire a bit and couldn't quite get over the line, but we played done neat football and broke well when we got the ball back. Hopefully a large number of these U18s will get pro contracts so we can build a proper development side and try and bring some players through.
Forum Thread Ipswich U21s are live on YouTube today at 09:39 9 Mar 2014 @ITFC_Academy: #itfc U21s game with Cardiff is streamed live on YouTube today, 11:30am kick off. Details in this link: http://t.co/HOzeSl9hdb In fairness we'll prob get stuffed as they are a good side and we will have a team of kids but it may be worth a look if anyone's interested.
Forum Thread Chance to see Veseli on Sky tonight at 08:16 7 Mar 2014 Bury v Rochdale is on this evening if anyone wants to have a watch of how Freddie is doing in his loan spell.
Forum Thread Great to see Ted Bishop may travel. at 16:09 6 Mar 2014 Had a very good season so far and looked really good in last 2 U21 games. Most will be unaware, but he missed most of his first year as a scholar due to a back injury, and started less than 5 games all last season for the U18s and U21s combined. That must have been really tough for him and great to see he is doing well now, especially at the time when professional contracts will begin to be handed out.
Forum Thread U21s won 1-0 at 15:40 4 Mar 2014 Was a decent game, Ebanks-Blake got 90 minutes under his belt and scored a superb goal. Loach didn't have a lot to do even though QPR had more of the ball, we played fairly well though and created a few good chances - Ted Bishop and Matt Clarke had good games amongst the scholars.
Forum Thread Mick moaning about U21 league... at 08:10 4 Mar 2014 Says he would have liked to give Carlos or Ando a game last week..... Difficult to have too much sympathy when he elected to start Alan Lee ahead of them. 4 overage players out of 11 should give you a good balance between development and old pros, our problem is that the overage players who have dropped down have been poor. EDIT: And the club elected to pull out of the Suffolk Cup, that was an opportunity to get some games in less than luxurious settings against players giving their all - and help local clubs financially

Forum Thread BBC late kick off east returns tomorow... at 20:46 2 Mar 2014 Matt Holland been given the boot, replaced by James Burridge who is a rugby and tennis correspondent...his regular pundit is ex-budgie Paul McVeigh. So it will just be a Norwich love-in, despite it being a show about the Football League in the region, joke.

Forum Thread Luke Shaw in the England squad at 15:08 27 Feb 2014
That date of birth makes me want to cry though, he's just over 10 years younger than me....when did I get so old?!
Forum Thread U21s game tonight...which senior players will be invloved. at 12:15 24 Feb 2014 Loach and Mings are looking at Twitter but neither of them affect the 3 over age outfield players. I'd hope both Ebanks-Blake and Taylor are to try and get them both firing, which means one of Wordsworth or Richardson will miss out.
Forum Thread Alan Lee on the bench? at 11:44 22 Feb 2014
Not necessarily but his kit is laid out, may just end up being the spare man of the 18 outfielders?
Forum Thread Phil....is this Tunnicliffe move 'imminent' at 12:48 21 Feb 2014 This para in the match report seems to make out that it's a little further advanced than might be expected: "Alternatively, Green could start on the right with Jay Tabb or perhaps even Ryan Tunnicliffe in the centre if a loan deal to bring the Fulham midfielder back to Portman Road can be done with the same haste as the recent move for Green."
Forum Thread Tunnicliffe return at 11:26 21 Feb 2014 As per the story on main page, this was on Twitter yesterday which I found interesting:
If true, then I'd imagine the 2 boys Meulensteen signed because he'd worked with them since they were 9 may be out the door. If it's true, flogging Tunnicliffe in training when he has played 30 games this season and regularly since August is such poor management.
Forum Thread Sky games this year at 09:46 21 Feb 2014 Again, just the 1 for ITFC. Out of the 50 games that have been or shown, or are scheduled to be shown, 28 of them feature at least one of QPR, Leeds and Leicester. Ridiculous how the same clubs are just on every week, and in these FFP times, when facility fees for being on Sky are basically a 6 figure appearance per game it makes a huge difference.
Forum Thread Jack Doherty at 09:44 21 Feb 2014 On loan with Waterford until the end of July... Doesn't look good for the boy, missing the whole of pre-season going into his final year. Surely if he was suffering with homesickness, the team bonding etc that would take place during pre season would make this doubly important for him - otherwise he'll come back as a bit of an outsider again?
