Missing Mick
by SpiritOfJohn at 08:37 21 Apr 2018

Just like Jonas Knudsen I find myself pining for the good old days of the Mick McCarthy era. This current wave of optimism sweeping over the club must surely end soon and come crashing down around us. One day, maybe sooner maybe later, you will also feel some nostalgia for those halcyon days under McCarthy. With these thoughts in mind, here is a tribute to the great man and his legacy:

Managerial Musings
by monty_radio at 18:19 19 Apr 2018

With new manager speculation at fever pitch and so many alluring names who may have thrown their hats into some alleged ring, or perhaps been bumped up in the odds due to a flurry of misplaced fivers, it’s time to step back and assess the relevant claims of the hopefuls.

Wanted: An Inexperienced New Manager
by JollyJourno at 20:49 17 Apr 2018

Usually the top attribute any employer looks for in a new recruit to their organisation is experience. Experience of doing a job at the same level, and a track record of success at that level, should surely be a guarantee of similar outcomes at a similar-sized organisation, right?

We ALL Need to Come Together, Right Now, Over Town
by IamSpartacus at 08:42 12 Apr 2018

This in-fighting is painful to see, read and hear. The Mick McCarthy was crap/great/boring/salvationesque claims are all true, and at the same time not. It is not binary.

How are you planning to spend your Tuesday evening this week? You might want to head down to Portman Road to catch Town versus Barnsley; the next match in what is turning into one of the most frustrating seemingly never-ending seasons that I can remember.

Perhaps the Glass is Half Full After All?

There’s been a lot of gloom and doom published on this website over the past few months, and for sure there is nothing happening on the pitch at the moment to blow any of this away.

Where Have Our Standards Gone?

If you were one of the 1,066 Ipswich Town fans at Ashton Gate on Saturday, ask yourself and be honest, how much does the result really bother you?

Blue Sky Thinking

For those of you in business the title may seem like a boardroom soundbite, but seeing as it looks increasingly like there will be change at Portman Road over the next few months, what do we want to see?

When, as lately, the TWTD Forum is becalmed it is usually an indication that nothing is happening with ITFC on the pitch or off, or at any rate, nothing of public note.

This Might Rub You Up the Wrong Way, it Might Not!
by delias_cheesy_flaps at 16:22 20 Feb 2018

“What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up the stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him, and without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

Identity Crisis

Pre-Derby Hope and Hype
by TimS at 23:56 14 Feb 2018

I hate the phrase 'Old Farm derby'. There are plenty of patronising phrases that have, and are still thrown at me when I talk about our club, but the 'Old Farm derby' degenerates our derby into nothing more than a Country Show debate over who has the biggest tractor. Quaint, sweet but slightly pathetic, not understood by anyone outside East Anglia.
