Ipswich Town 1-1 Preston North End - Match Report
at 14:21:28

Have just read RobsonWark's comments. He seems to be saying that our three consecutive managers and their assistants are wrong (about Chambers). These are people who make a good living from their football expertise. And all of our training staff (also far more knowledgeable than the average Joe) and most of our supporters.
According to RobsonWark everybody is wrong except him. I wonder how long it will take for the penny to drop.

He has obviously kept himself in good shape and was ready when called upon. I hope he gets a decent move and I wish him well - a good professional.

Hayes Saves Penalty and Dozzell Skippers as England U17s Draw With Germany
at 19:13:03

Yes. Though as a little lad living near Newmarket I wasn't able to get to the games. Dad started taking me to a few games in 1965 then we moved to Felixstowe in '67 and I was able to become a regular.

Hayes Saves Penalty and Dozzell Skippers as England U17s Draw With Germany
at 13:58:18

Seasider; I accept that, in recent years, the club hasn't taken many players all the way from youths to established first- teamers but that isn't necessarily the fault of the current manager. It may simply be because our youngsters haven't been good enough. He tried Jack Marriott and I remember us all hoping that Marriott would kick on and impatient to see him as a first teamer. Eventually the club, presumably McCarthy, decided that the player wasn't quite up to it. I remember some contributors to this forum being disappointed that we'd let him go. Marriott is still only 21 so has time to improve (a-la-Vardy?) but is not yet holding down a regular starting place in League 2. I suspect that most of us no longer expect Marriott to ever set the Championship alight. Perhaps McCarthy knows what he is doing rather more than he is often given credit for...

You believe he would have done it and therefore it's a fact? Sorry, that isn't how facts work.
As for McCarthy; he has shown that if the youngsters are good enough they will get their chances. It worked with Mings and the club benefited greatly. He tried it with Emmanuel and the player is clearly not yet ready. Bishop is another case in point; 33 games before his nineteenth birthday, all under McCarthy. The 'fact' that injury has prevented Bishop from continuing his progress this season is a disappointment to all of us but the point is that, if the player is good enough, he'll get his chance.
Those of us old enough to have enjoyed the club's purple period under Robson have it to treasure; for a while it seemed we had a never-ending stream of quality coming through the youths and we can all name the players involved. Rarely has any club, anywhere, been able to produce so many in so short a space of time whilst having a manager of rare skill and vision, able to make the best of those young assets. But, as was inevitable, the stream dried up.
McCarthy is a fine manager with a proven record of success. We were hurtling towards oblivion when he took over. We are now competing against clubs able to spend many more millions than us. And we are in the hunt for the play-offs. I doubt whether any other manager, dealt McCarthy's hand, would play the cards any better...

Therein61...you said "Sir Bobby would have had them in the 1st team squad and given them a few minutes as subs by now." Your statement is not supported by the facts.
You appear to be inferring that McCarthy is disinclined to give the youngsters a chance. Again, not supported by the facts...Mings...Emmanuel...

From above - "Sir Bobby would have had them in the 1st team squad and given them a few minutes as subs by now as he was never afraid "to blood a good young'un" "
So, tell us, how many under-seventeens played for the first team under Robson?

The Media Doesn't Like Us, But Should We Care?
at 23:43:25

Blog seems to me to be paranoid nonsense. For the last few weeks the national papers and radio stations have been complimentary about our progress and we have been prominent in their coverage.
As for your suggestion that the bookmakers are not being objective or fair, don't you realise that, once the book is 'live,' the odds are determined by the amount placed in bets? If we are fourth favourites it is because more has been wagered on the other three.
