Anyone who has read the Millenium trilogy holding out much hope for this?
Looks like they are going to sell out of half and half scarfs.....
at 07:51 26 Aug 2015 shouldn't be this exciting going to Old Trafford for a League Cup tie surely?

I hope Mick still rotates the squad about, making 7 or 8 changes from league game immediately prior to it as will keep squad players fit and interested. Guess some of the senior boys will want to play though which makes it awkward.

I'll definitely go, but people do realise if we go up we'll have games like this every other week?
Hat trick of assists for McGoldrick.

Class act
Good to see Alabi score
at 22:00 25 Aug 2015

Only negative tonight is 120 minutes for McGoldrick.

Great to win, and give the squad players another game in a few weeks - especially as a potential money spinner

...that I've contributed a few words towards.
I reckon tonight's U21 game must be in doubt.
at 16:11 24 Aug 2015

Not good to play on the pitch in these conditions as it chops it up too much - if there are 20k paying spectators turning up you don't really have a choice....but for tonight the groundsman will want it cancelled.

Think there is an ad that is taking ages to load and means I can't do anything - have put on ad blocker and all works fine now.

Just constantly says 'Processing...' at bottom of window (Chrome) and then I get the option to Kill the page as it is unresponsive. AdBlocker has solved this so must be to do with that but I don't like to leave that on on TWTD as know that stops revenue.
That sounds against run of play - get in! (n/t)

What do we reckon then?
at 14:48 22 Aug 2015

Personally I'd say 442 with Sears out wide on right flank
NFL Fantasy Football - Dynasty league
at 08:16 22 Aug 2015


I have a spare few of spaces in a Dynasty Fantasy Football League for ITFC fans that is being set up this year.

If anyone is interested, or wants any further details then let me know either on here or via PM.

The league is set up on ESPN so if you already play on there you'll know the formats - it's Standard Scoring.



Sam Ford and Shane McLoughlin have also travelled with first team to Preston
at 16:13 21 Aug 2015

U18 striker who has scored in both games this year, and was very impressive v Crewe last week. Not played much for the U21s though and still a long way off in my view.

EDIT: And McLoughlin

George Moncur?
at 08:27 19 Aug 2015

Could he be about to follow Sears up the A12?

Left out of last nights game, and looks a cracking player when I've seen them, good on the ball and a hard worker. Only thing is he's (another) central midfielder so may be unlikely.

My thoughts from last night
at 08:12 19 Aug 2015

Maitland-Niles is something else, that touch to bring the ball down over his shoulder before little interchange with Pitman was just different class. He was excellent on and off the ball and we need to manage him carefully to keep him fit.

Whilst Murphy has picked up a knock, he looks like a player that hasn't had a pre season, annoying that he is in Ireland squad as that 2 week international break to work on his fitness would be handy.

Douglas is good off the ball, but his distribution was woeful last night, I'd been told he is an attacking midfielder who was playing in a good passing side last season - his distribution was worse than Hyam's last night and I think we miss having a Bru/Bishop in there who can pass incisively forwards.

McGoldrick has to play, he is just pure class (even though his goal was an OG as headed it into defenders back!), once we stopped going long we looked like we could cut them open quite easily.

Knudsen looks a hell of a find, his positioning and touch were so good, and he made excellent decisions between when to play and when to just clear his lines - excellent technically and seems to have picked up pace of English game very quickly.

Chambers got caught out badly a couple of times, including when they hit the post, still not comfortable with that side of the defence.

Great save from Bart at the end and he had a quiet game, some of his kicking in first half wasn't very good though.

I backed Sears FGS and 2-0 so was a doubly happy an, the finish from Sears was sublime - made it look very easy but if you can see a replay of it from behind the goal you'll see just how good it was.

And to anyone moaning when people are celebrating being top of the league in August, what better place is there to be at the moment?!
My 2 favourite football watching experiences...

A bright sunny day when the pitch is looking perfect and the temperature is high.

A rainy night game when the pitch is soaked through under the floodlights.

U21 thoughts...
at 15:46 17 Aug 2015

....I missed all the goals and got there shortly before half time so bear that in mind.

From what I've seen at Leeds and today, Alabi looks a handful. Strong and quick, and holds the ball up well. Exactly the type of striker we need for the U21s to allow our young players to play off him and flourish. We struggled last year as no physical presence to hold the ball up and allow us possession in the other teams half. I'd sign him.

Parr looked good at both right and left back, got through 90 minutes comfortably and defended well while used the ball well also.

Stewart needs to leave, he shouldn't be playing U21 football at this stage in his career - hopefully something happens soon as his career is being wasted here. The fact that he is behind a totally unfit Toure says all you need to know.

Why wasn't Toure playing, he needs to get fit and this is a perfect opportunity. Also Henshall didn't play so I assume he is in the Matchday 19/20 for tomorrows game.

Dozzell is a great player to watch, he'll have moved past Benyu in the pecking order soon, who doesn't do enough for me.

GK was relatively untested from what i saw, made a decent save the only time he was called upon so hard to judge.

Shame he couldn't run his old one down and sign here as looks top drawer
