|I Went To Watch 'Bobby Robson: More Than a Manager' At Wembley Tonight|
at 01:50 24 May 2018
It's funny, heartwarming, emotive, beautifully shot and extremely well put together.
Don't want to write too much, so as not to spoil it for those yet to see it - Sir Bobby's time managing in Spain, Portugal and Holland are all covered, as is his time as England manager and Ipswich!
There are some wonderful moments shared at various times during the film by (the original) Ronaldo, Pep, Mourinho, Shearer, Lineker, Ferguson and Gazza.
Good amounts of footage - Ronaldo really had the lot as a player - and there is a good amount of ITFC coverage.
While Henry Winter was the host, Terry Butcher was the guest speaker tonight and did an excellent job. He said the England team should watch this film before they go to the World Cup, and he is right!
Lady Elsie was in attendance, as was their son, Mark, and I bumped into Barry Fry.
My estimation is around 2000 attended tonight - I didn't see many Town shirts though but perhaps that more to do with the dip in temperature rather than non-attendance.
A wonderful film that encapsulates Sir Bobby very well indeed and I would recommend it as a must-see for all Town fans!
Sir Bobby would be proud, very proud indeed!
PS I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Terry Butcher tonight and he happily posed for some pictures. I asked him about the possibility of him and George taking over as manager and No 2. He replied that the club want to go for someone younger, and confirmed that neither him nor George had been invited for an interview.
If you have a ticket, you are in for a real treat, and if you don't have a ticket, I would recommend that you buy one!
Thanks for reading!

|I'm Going To Be In Ipswich For A Day Or 2 Over Half-Term With My 2 Daughters...|
at 14:01 18 May 2018
Aged 13 and 12.
Does anyone have any great suggestions for things we can do or visit in Ipswich that the girls might enjoy please?
I'm not local and don't know the area well and would appreciate any pointers.
Many thanks indeed!
PS We'll probably go to the Suffolk Show on one of the days.
|Morning Friends! Does Anyone Know If ITFC Will Have A Stand At The Suffolk Show?|
at 06:53 12 May 2018
I'm thinking of attending for the first time this year, am hoping to bring the children and wanted to tap into the collective knowledge of TWTD.
Is it a good day out?
Are there plenty of things for the children to do?
Once inside, are the activities and events expensive?
Generally speaking, are the queues horrendously long?
Is there any other information that might be useful?
Thanks for your help!
|I Broke The News About David McGoldrick To 7-year-old BBM Jr Over A Video Call..|
at 10:17 9 May 2018
last night. I've been dreading this for a few weeks. I had been dropping subtle hints recently to try and cushion the blow, making him aware that it could happen.
Bart is undoubtedly BBM Jr's favourite player but David McGoldrick is a very very close 2nd!
He had already decided that if he were a mascot again, he would be coming onto the pitch with David (he was with Bart for the first game of the season).
"Oh, what the heck!" he exclaimed as a first reaction. "Why Daddy, why?"
I tried to articulate the situation to him in a way that he could understand. I could see the disappointment in his eyes, after all I shared that same feeling.
I watched as his thoughts turned to Bart. "Bart's not leaving, is he Daddy?"
"I hope not Son, I really hope not." That would break his heart...
Have any TWTDers been through anything similar? He was close to tears when Daryl Murphy left (his first ITFC hero) and I had to try and explain the transfer system to a boy whom had turned 6 just days before. Confusion reigned: "Ipswich sell people for money Daddy?"
A few minutes later and he understood a lot more After a while, the disappointment passed and I'm sure it will this time too - I'm sure I felt the same when Wark, Mariner, Muhren etc left...
