Unethical hair
at 12:04 15 Feb 2017

According to B.B.C. Asamoah Gyan found guilty by U.A.E. authorities of sporting "unethical hair". Ian Marshall might have failed that particular test, but what other Town players past and present might have been cited?

What a civilised chat! What charming platitudes on offer to serious questions!

How difficult it all is. Well, we need to get better, and so we will.

Jolly good show!

We missed out on him yesterday. Went on loan to Kilmarnock from Hearts where his record was identical to his spell at Town: 19 apps 1 goal.

So, on that sort of form a player could play 380 games finally becoming that famed 20 goal man as in "20 goal-a-career" striker. Still Wiki and the Star will continue to hail you as a striker. We seem in our declining decades to have had a fair few of those. Perhaps we could think of a more apt name (polite please!) such as front runner or forward thinker.

Pulis bids £10m for Livermore.
at 16:49 16 Jan 2017

A decent enough Prem player, but it highlights the financial world in which moderate but established Premier clubs are trading - the knock-on of which sends long-established Championship clubs to look at such as Jordan Spence as cover, or more.

Let go by relegated MK Dons at 26, hopefully, he can still kick on. But the size of that hope may prove almost as big as the aforementioned financial gap.

A Belated Christmas Carol of Sorts

The Marley deal was dead, no doubt about it. Scrooge looked again as the knocker smiled in a kindly, fair-play sort of fashion, then slowly faded away. He turned the key and entered his very own gloomy arena. A large chunk of ceiling, disturbed by the mere turning of the key, struck him as he climbed the rickety stair to the upper section.
open question on rumour sources
at 10:57 5 Jan 2017

Posters in an earlier thread discussed unreliable websites, debating whether passing on a rumour from such a site constitutes actual rumour-mongering.

Please don't re-hash that actual argument, but my question is: can anyone recall or find a transfer rumour from a generally acknowledged poor website which actually turned out to be accurate and to have got in there first?

2016 points per game
at 09:35 23 Dec 2016

Is Marcus a saviour or a slick operator? Is Mick a dinosaur or a savvy pragmatist? Are they both our best hope or our millstone? The arguments rage on, and sides are taken to the extent that a fan's perspective, if expressed too firmly and too often, mark him or her down as a raver, a dullard, a bore, and, even in extremis, part of ITFC's problem.

But I just find that I don't remember being bored at a football match so very frequently before this.

People often come on here and solemnly pronounce that the table doesn't lie. Well, In a table of points per game for all clubs, published in the Telegraph today, Town, with 1.3 points per match across 2016, sit above only QPR and Rotherham in the Championship. It seems to illustrate what my eyes tell me, but doubtless I may have misunderstood.

Mick praises Jewell back in the day
at 22:12 21 Dec 2016

While watching the less than gripping Newport v Plymouth I was looking up the Plymouth sub, David Goodwillie, as I seemed to remember Town being linked back in 2011. Now, only still at 27, not even starting for Plymouth.

And I happened on Mick, while at Wolves, praising Jewell as the man to make it happen

McCarthy: Town Have a Chance With Jewell in Charge 1st Aug 2011 08:28
Wolves boss Mick McCarthy says Town have a real chance of promotion back to the Premier League with Paul Jewell as manager. The former Ireland chief has a lot of time for his Blues opposite number, who like him has previously taken two clubs from the Championship into the top flight. 31
