TWTD Coronavirus Isolation Help Thread
Thursday, 19th Mar 2020 10:20
TWTD Forum posters have instigated a thread where older posters or members of otherwise vulnerable groups can ask their fellow Blues for help during the coronavirus crisis.
It’s expected that those aged over 70 will soon be told to remain at home for an extended period in order to protect them from Covid-19.
The idea came from a forum post by Pecker: “Is it worth setting up a coronavirus help page on here, for local over 70s who may not have others to help. Maybe us slightly younger ones could help them with their shopping etc.”
Another poster, Callis, suggested it should also be opened up to those with underlying health issues, while the large TWTD readership is not just based in Ipswich and wider Suffolk but also further afield.
The thread can be found stickied at the top of the Forum here where it will remain for the duration of the crisis.
In addition, even without matches taking place, there are always plenty of threads to pass the time, some football related, plenty not. All are welcome to contribute.

The summer of 1974 had been an anxious period for Town fans. Will he or won’t he leave us? That question hung over us as uncertainty grew about Bobby Robson’s future. Don Revie had left Leeds to take up the England job and Bobby was seen as his likely successor.
And Along Came Jim by Moggasknockdown
Life without football is a funny old thing. Currently, in these most testing of times, the idea of missing football might seem like a triviality, an inconsequential itch amidst an existential crisis. Many of us miss the routine of it, the communality and regularity of it.
City Floored by Brilliant Viljoen by clivebleedingthomas
My father, Owen Sturley Nunn, known as 'Bob' to his many friends at Portman Road, kept an archive of newspaper reports of notable Town matches. I inherited the archive upon his death in 1987 and continued to keep reports of noteworthy games.
The Way Back From Here Will Be Long, But There is a Way by SomethingBlue
It's a delicate situation now, perhaps an existential one. People need to stay engaged, focused and angry – which I know isn't easy to do given the endless stream of kicks in the teeth. But articulated vocally and consistently – which hasn't ever happened yet – it will have an effect in time.
Scapegoats by bbg
A lot of blame gets thrown about on this site and on other media with owner, manager and players on the receiving end. I haven't seen too many posts where supporters have taken the blame for the current predicament, because you had a massive role in it.
