Scally: It’s Not Looking Good For Boxing Day
at 13:02:26

I think they are obliged to use Under-23s if they can. If he wants to play the game behind closed doors he has the power - Salford are doing that I think. But expect he wants the matchday revenue later in the season if they can get the game on.

Hope the league have a close eye on this, although not sure how this is policed.

Town Launch New Home Kit
at 15:40:20

Fair enough Pete, but the club can't win - they've been getting grief on social media for weeks for not releasing the new kit design already.

I imagine the kit is a strong source of revenue particularly given we have just lost out on a lot of money from attendances with the season ending early. It's not something the club can avoid doing.

Fair enough Pete, but the club can't win - they've been getting grief on social media for weeks from people complaining the kit hadn't been announced yet.

I imagine kit sales are a very important source of revenue right now, given we will have lost money on attendances as the season ended early. It's not something they can avoid doing.

Town Launch New Home Kit
at 15:11:35

Here's what you said. last paragraph is about the kit launch. I quite enjoyed watching Norwich play Man Utd in the quarter finals of the FA Cup by the way, they lost and had their best defender sent off.

"We're honouring the 1981 UEFA Cup winning team by playing mid table League 1 football.

We have to sit and watch N*rwich play FA Cup Quarter Finals against Man Utd, Beat Man City in the Premiership and we lose at home to sodding Fleetwood and 'try our best to give Coventry a game'

How about you sort that out before we worry about bl00dy kits ????"

It's one logical explanation for why you think we shouldn't honour arguaby our club's greatest achievement just because Norwich fluked a win over Man City months ago.

What's the alternative, we should make kits out of manure bags and play in those until we're one of the top clubs in Europe again?

There isn't a single Town fan who isn't "utterly frustrated at our current plight."

Pete, you a Budgie? It's months since they beat Man City, they've been sh*te ever since and are on course to go down with a lower points total than the 1994-95 Town side which lost 9-0 at Old Trafford.
I'm happy to observe 40 years since our club achieved something Norwich never will.

McCarthy: Home Crowd Can Give Us an Extra Lift
at 12:15:47

Where to start with this thread, although it is an interesting insight into the mentality of some of our fans, who are as damaging to the club at the moment as they perceive the manager to be.

But yes, look at the sheer cheek of McCarthy, asking fans to get behind an honest, hardworking group of players who could make it three wins on the spin today. How dare he.

How dare he expect supporters to put aside their petty prejudices and get behind these players, instead of doing the logical thing which is to be cross about something, hold a grudge and use that to bind themselves to what is happening on the pitch RIGHT NOW.

Hey, did you see Bart has been selected for the Poland squad? Recognition of his performances and status as probably the best keeper in the Championship. Mick signed him of course, but he's a dinosaur who swore at fans who had been singing AT AN AWAY DERBY that his football was sh*t even though we came within seconds of winning the game. Which is unforgiveable.

Since Cameron Carter-Vickers was picked up on loan, an opportunity sniffed out by the same dinosaur, who was once mean in a press conference about supporters who were were seeking out loan signing Gleeson on Twitter and abusing him BEFORE HE HAD EVEN PULLED ON A TOWN SHIRT , we've conceded four goals in eight games. Another lucky signing by this idiot who clearly doesn't know what he's doing and wants fans to support their own team.

I mean this guy. He picks up Kieffer Moore for ten grand from Forest Green Reserves, a completely useless pub player according to our exceptionally wise and knowledgeable fans, loans him out to Rotherham and then sells him to Barnsley for meagre £750k when everyone knows he had suddenly become brilliant and should be "given an chance" at Town. And what has happened? This predatory striker who we sold for an amount that was clearly peanuts, has scored an amazing one goal in the last nine games and Barnsley are in a relegation battle, proving what our fans suspected all along, that Mick doesn't know what he is doing. And he has the temerity, the bare-faced cheek, to suggest "he is the manager and we are the fans" as though that means he knows more than us.

Then look at the awful state of our current strike force. FIrst he wastes £1m on two strikers from Rangers, neither of whom are particularly famous or expensive so therefore will definitely be failures then lo and behold, they are merely in double figures in March. This is what happens when you buy cheap and the manager is clueless. He should have surveyed the supporters to find out who we should buy.

Then there is the DISGRACE of sending some of our promising young players out on loan to get experience. Look at Flynn Downes, earning rave reviews in a high-flying Luton team and gaining valuable match time. Everyone knows you don't do that and no manager who knows what they are doing ever does that. I mean SIr Alex Ferguson, the most successful manager in the history of British football, sent David Beckham, one of the most gifted players of his generation out on loan to Preston, and Harry Kane, the best English striker playing at the moment, went out on loan when he was young, but apart from that there are no examples of it working. Unless you count John Terry going out on loan to Nottingham Forest early in his Chelsea career. Which was also a complete flash in the pan.

Then there's the ridiculous signing of Adam Webster, a very talented, skilfull defender who likes to bring the ball forward and will probably play in the Premier League one day. What was he thinking? Idiot.

Then, perhaps worst of all, are these other managers, most of them very experienced in English football, suggesting we are somehow lucky to have him. What do they know? Neil Warnock has never achieved anything of note as a Championship manager, but the bloke behind me has been watching ITFC for five years now, and says Mick is a big-nosed tw*t who plays hoofball. I know who I trust.

I could go on. This man has so many crimes against his name. First and foremost though, it's ridiculous to expect us, as fans, to get behind a team that is playing well and performing above its budget. Especially after he's criticised our own fans for merely abusing him and players during the match.

Right, now I'm wound up I'm going to sit on Twitter, poised for the team announcement at 2pm. If he doesn't start Celina I'm going to unleash. We win every game when Celina starts, except matches like Burton and Derby at home and Fulham away. And we lose every game he doesn't play in. Except the last who, which we won.

Rotherham Boss: Moore Not Involved at Fulham and Town Set to Sell
at 10:15:10

Our fans continue to amaze and puzzle.

Last year Moore was tagged a pub player, or worse, and a waste of even £20k. Now Mick is getting stick for possibly getting a hefty profit on him and people want him to be 'given a chance'.

Never underestimate the hypocrisy and short memory of the modern football fan.

Chambers: Winning Games is the Most Important Thing
at 14:15:15

Jeez louise, we are now going to compare the current side to 1981 are we? When it was a level playing field and a small club like ours could compete at the top level. Bringing up Wark, Mariner etc is a nonsense when relegated clubs come down with three years' worth of parachute payments behind them.

The players are behind Mick, thank goodness. Team unity is something we lacked under Keane and Jewell. Calling that "being a company man" is symptomatic of the instinct to say something negative with our fans at the moment.

McCarthy: Palace Tie an Opportunity for Youngsters

It's the day after we've lost 6-1 a Charlton. Your fairy godmother sidles up and whispers: "Would you take four league wins and a cup victory in a row if it meant fielding a weakened team at Palace in the League Cup?". Hell yes, you say. You'd bite her arm off.
And yet people are now preparing their moans against Mick. Get behind the team and accept the situation he's in.
