Haven't posted for a while but I've been thinking and, yes, it did hurt.
Having signed Ebanks-Blake we're looking a much more challenging prospect for other clubs, especially when and if when he's fit and ready coming into the end of the season. I've read on here that many are enthusiastic about our current league position and our potential to push for a play-off place- so I got to thinking about us being promoted.
I don't think we're anywhere near ready to be promoted- at least another season with some clever acquisitions thrown in would make us contenders imo. But, as this is football, stranger things have happened.
So, what would happen if we won promotion this season? Thinking about the current squad, I'm not sure too many would be PL worthy either yet or at all. Who would you keep and who would you let go? How much would Marcus grab back, how much would we have to spend, and could we survive on such limited money?
As I said, I doubt it very much and tbh want the club to grow at an 'organic rate' over the next season or so to strengthen properly. Still, a penny for your thoughts! (Penny not redeemable)
Off for my first holiday in 6 years next month and, as you've probably guessed, I'm off to Prague. So I thought I'd ask you lovely, well-travelled TWTDers for any insights as to what I should get up to over there.
Visiting a mate out there who's just taken a job- sure he'll have some ideas but has obviously been busy so may not have seen it all. Though he has told me that he's found an 'Honesty Bar' where you pay what you want for pints...
I'm obviously partial to a drink but want to avoid the stag-night scene. And I already shell out enough for the missus so paying for sex isn't on the cards either.
I'm not aware of Ipswich being affiliated with any historical/political/religious causes or ideologies but am curious as to whether we ever have been? Is there any 'deeper' point to our rivalry with Norwich (in a Celtic/Rangers sense) or is it all just due to locality?
A lot of clubs seem to have these affiliations and I've never heard of ours being that way, but wanted to ask you old, wise heads of TWTD if that's the case.
