Illusions of grandeur? 17:41 - Oct 24 with 1005 viewsBigeze

Is it time to forget the past and acknowledge our beloved club isn’t as it was when growing up?

The sooner we accept we are a average L1 team, with no steel, flair, who cannot change/influence (for the better) a game, it may just make it better for us all.

I fear all we can hope for is a brief flirtation with the championship maybe once or twice in the next decade* and only dream of ever of the heady heights of playoff to the promise land ever again 🥴

*if the club last that long with shocking parity of league money and Covid ransacking clubs

I don't think that 'we can do better than mid table in the third division' is a massively entitled view to take of ITFC.

Err, I accepted that 10 years ago , tho not the L1 bit.

There is no grandeur at this level unless you win every game.

You mean delusions.

However, either way there's nothing wrong with drawing on inspiration from our history and having aspirations based on that.

It feels wrong where are for good reason.

The size of our fanbase far exceeds the likes of Lincoln and Doncaster, as does our current wage bill, so no, mid-table Division Three is not acceptable.

You are technically correct with your subject too many fans think because we won the FA & UEFA cup we have a right to go to clubs like Lincoln and win by default. History means nothing.

However I don't agree we should accept we're an average L1 team as we should have the ambition to get out of this league. The is a difference between ambition and illusions of grandeur

I'll never give up on believing that ITFC can play at the top level again, otherwise what's the point?

Whilst your analysis is broadly correct, the one colossal detail you forget is Marcus Evans and the way he has systematically let standards slip at the club season after season. Ultimately the reason we are midtable League One is because a) our owner doesn't know how to run a football club and b) our owner has no serious ambition for the club. It amazes me and depresses me at the same time how certain elements of our fanbase still hold Evans in such high regard as being the man that ''saved us'' and ''where we be without him'' etc.

Take away the three trophies and we still have, by far, one of the biggest fan bases in the league with lots of season ticket sales and a large squad. Yes we might struggle in the championship but we should not accept being an "average" league one team. My suspicion is that we will eventually stumble across a manager that can take us back up, more by luck than judgement.

Like Chris Wilder at Sheffield United - it took them time to find him but they eventually managed it.
