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.

Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too. Not only have we seen another club disappear as the fans of Macclesfield joined those of Bury in being locked out of the game, we might count ourselves lucky to only be locked out of Portman Road for our own good.
A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
