Do we have a board?
at 19:18 11 Apr 2021

Following the takeover. We now know that O'Leary is Chairman. So does that mean that Johnson, Bakay, Detmer, Evans, Scwartz, plus the CEO, constitute the "board"..?? Slightly confused as nothing appears to have been mentioned about this & we haven't had this arrangement at Ipswich for such a long time, I've forgotten how it works. What about the ITFC shareholders, presumably they would get representation? Of am I totally wrong on this? Forgive me if so.

All not happy at Portsmouth
at 09:32 11 Mar 2021

Lot of talk in the local press & social media about Kenny Jackett's future at Portsmouth. Fans getting very twitchy about the current poor run of form. Have they blown it? One less to worry about for us?

Been reading about the takeover this morning & found this site which details the plans for the Pawtucket site by Fortuitous Partners. Looks very positive & impressive. Is this the future & are we in at the right time with the right people?

Wonder how Mick Mills is feeling?
at 23:38 28 Feb 2021

Poor Mick was in tears after the Northampton game, beside himself at what his beloved club has become. Wonder how one of the most honourable guys the club has ever had, feels right row?

Obviously have to look at where the experience was at, Cowley is only at lower league & was somewhat found out higher up. Sir Bobby was simply amazing, he did it at the highest level everywhere. At the lower end we see two of our recent managers!

Two names jump out for me. Slaven Bilic & Darren Moore. Both currently employed. Bilic in China might be tempted? Then theres a certain Jack Ross.

If we want to keep everything in house, then surely you must recognise the record & experience of George Burley & get him working with Dyer & Butcher.

Just trying to help Mr Evans get things sorted!

Today is the day, surely..???
at 11:03 31 Jan 2021

Evans has to bin Lambert today surely? With a whole week to prepare with a new manager. Come on, Dyer & Butcher! 23 games to try it & see if it can work. There is nothing to lose & everything to gain. Think they call it a no brainer! Sort it out Ipswich.

Derby County 4-0 up
at 19:13 29 Dec 2020

Not only winning but destroying Birmingham. Currently 4-0 up. Whats the management set up there, is Rooney the new manager or are they all doing it by committee? If its Rooney then Lambert needs to pay him a visit. They've been awful all season but hell of a turnaround tonight. Rooney just somehow really looks the part.

If we had appointed George as manager at the end of last season, how do you guys reckon he would have done, compared to what’s actually happened..??
