Two more goals for Spurs
at 17:03 22 May 2022

And Norwich will go down with a minus 60 goal difference.

For context, the atrocious 1994-95 Ipswich side that lost 9-0 at Old Trafford went down with minus 57.

Have I imagined this
at 13:26 20 May 2022

Or is it accepted wisdom that our first game of the season will be away, to allow more time for work on Portman Road? I assume this is something the club can request.

Which would mean our first home game is likely to be Saturday August 6th (unless there is some TV interference)

We don't need a new CB do we? Just need to sort the left side of the defence out.

Can we nip these odd Tyreece Simpson narratives in the bud pls
at 13:14 22 Apr 2022

Correct me if I'm wrong. There may be stuff going on behind the scenes, but here are the facts.

1 We scout him, a promising rugby player, and sign him into our Academy
2 We coach him to be a footballer and provide him with accommodation, contract etc.
3 We choose Swindon Town as a good place for him to develop as a player, presumably based on the football they play,/coaching reputation etc.
4 He has a promising first half of the season in League Two, so we recall him to preserve OUR asset who WE discovered and pay the wages of.
5 He or his agent decide they don't want to stay at ITFC and things fall apart.

With that in mind, I am finding some criticism of the club baffling. Are we supposed to just roll over with every player? And please, I've seen a couple of references to this being like Rhodes and Wickham. I know people who are Swindon season ticket holders and saw most of his games. They were impressed with his pace and speed but not his finishing or control, and would be amazed if he went to a Championship club. Rhodes and Wickham were very special players and everybody knew that. Wickham in particular had proved himself against Championship defences. Simpson's work has all been in League Two.

I'm really not sure what else the club could have done.

Impressed by the atmosphere on Saturday
at 08:59 4 Apr 2022

Not all game, things died away when it became clear it wasn't going to be the game we all hoped. But just before and after kick off and at points in the first half it was superb. Cobbold Stand joining in with lower SBR. Good stuff from Blue Action again.

Had that been a repeat of the Plymouth performance/result I think the roof would have come off.

Attacking players next season
at 16:02 28 Mar 2022

Celina
Burns
Edwards
Aluko
Bonne
Norwood
New striker
New striker
Chaplin

If Edwards can become the wide threat on the opposite side to Burns, I don't feel like we need more completely new signings (need Aluko and Celina tied down to longer, permanent deals)

Atmosphere at Portman Road - two suggestions
at 10:25 26 Mar 2022

As it's now season ticket renewal time, a couple of things that might help.

1) The lower SBR will no doubt be oversubscribed again as it was last summer. Anyone who likes to get involved in the singing but can't get in there should get a ST in Cobbold Block A. The view is decent, and you are basically overlooking where Blue Action sit. If enough fans went in there and joined in the chants from the SBR it might help spread the sound.

2) More singers go in SAR - upper tier probably. When I first started going to Portman Road I stood in Churchman's and singing was pretty common there, people just needed leading. I think if a big enough group was in that stand and started songs, plenty of others would join in.
If you remember the 2001-02 season when they were rebuilding the North Stand and us NS regulars were down the other end in the top tier, it was actually really loud when it got going - the Derby/Finidi hat-trick match being the best example.

Just putting it out there.

This idea it's nor possible to generate a decent atmosphere at Portman Road
at 15:57 9 Mar 2022

..since the 2001-02 redevelopments.

I'm not 100% convinced I buy it. I can remember quite a few times the place was deafening.

The issue is partly the songs. All credit to Blue Action for coming up with some innovative new ones but my fear is only the simple ones will get picked up. And people keep falling back on Hark Now Here/Every Saturday We Follow.

However, Burns will tear you apart again is fine, and should get sung more. It's a tune everyone knows and he is actually tearing defences apart.

You to me are everything, our very own Egyptian King, Sam Morsy - also fine. The club account even tweeted it. Then everyone started trying to change the words and come up with a second verse. It doesn't need one, just repeat.

But don't just stand there nodding while someone is talking what is clearly rage-fuelled boll*cks. Challenge them, ask a question, say something. If not, your only function is to give idiots airtime. Which serves no purpose.

Just watched the full highlights of the 5-5 draw from the weekend

The defending from both teams is outstandingly bad. Hilariously bad. I laughed out loud.

See Cheltenham's first goal as exhibit A

Then for exhibit B watch the fourth and fifth Wycombe goals and the Cheltenham "strategy" from the kick off after Wycombe scored their fourth.

Pub team stuff from both clubs.

I quite like Cheltenham as a place
at 17:41 21 Feb 2022

But the petty side of me really wants revenge tomorrow night.

Of all the dark arts we have seen deployed against us in L1, the time-wasting long throw routine from the game at their place (where's the towel? Oh, it's over there, let me walk slowly to it, dry the ball and then think about possibly taking the throw) which the ref allowed as though it was a special teams routine in the NFL, followed by the guy deliberately throwing the ball straight out in injury time as he knew he would just be made to take it again, makes me hope we marmalise them tomorrow.
