|O'Neill: We're Reviewing Where We Need to Make Amends for Last Season|
O’Neill continues to come in for plenty of stick whenever he makes comment. I can understand people’s frustrations with that but the chap does talk sense. Sadly the likes of Milne and Clegg before him suffered the supporters wrath which is part of the job I guess.
Not his fault though as whoever is in that role can only say what they are allowed to. This set up doesn’t work and never will unless our owner takes control and speaks with (not to) the supporters on a regular basis. Most clubs from league one would enjoy that relationship.
|Blues Linked With Bristol Rovers Striker|
Could someone please advise if we are currently allowed to sign players at the moment? To be honest I have lost track about when the transfer window is!
|Ex-Blue Murphy Set to Return to Hometown Club|
Time catches up with all of us. He’s had a good career at a very good level. The last out and out number nine we have had and I doubt we will have another one with the same quality again.
Hope he has a good future whatever path he now takes, he certainly did us proud.
|Woolfenden Signs New Deal|
All been said really, very pleasing news.
Even if he is still sold to a Premier club there’s always a chance we could still have him with us for a season on loan.
Either way we have to make the proverbial hay whilst the sun shines because unless we get out of league one next season he will be gone contract or no contract.
|Town Launch New Home Kit|
Really nice shirt and I’m glad we’ve got the old badge back too even if only for one season.
I much prefer the Yellow in our badge as opposed to Red.
|Lambert: This Will Change the Face of the Game|
cat I fully respect your comments but maybe the reasoning behind the down voting of negative Lambert comments is that the comments Lambert makes on this thread subject have nothing to do with the seasons past. He is trying to make valid points about how football could change post COVID.
It’s disappointing that some people will have a go irrespective of what subject Lambert talks about.
Our managers track record with us is poor but please let us not knock everything he says.
PS I’m not criticising you cat just giving my thoughts.
|Everton Confirm Garbutt Release|
At the moment i think it is unrealistic to get him on a wage we can afford and that he would accept. I would imagine the gap is too large. That said he is no youngster so may be prepared to take a sizeable cut if he could get a lengthy contract.
Good proven player at our level but we will be heavily reliant on our youngsters for the foreseeable future.
|Hyam Leaves Southend|
Disappointing for him. I thought he was going to go on to better things when he first played for us.
He was making his mark when we had a decent team and he had good players with him. He was also holding his own playing against some strong Chsmpionship players.
Sadly as others have mentioned there are serious doubts over his ability to stay fit.
Hope he finds another club if not he may need a change of career.
|Town Close to Announcing Ticket Rebate Options|
I could understand people not wanting their money back if ITFC was a local village or community team that do not employ people but ITFC is a business. There is no way I would say to the club you can keep my money. If any other business such as theatres could not put a show on I would request a full refund. ITFC is no different.
I can understand those who maybe take the option of putting the refund to future season ticket purchases, however who’s to say there will still be a club in a couple of years time? These are dire times for all clubs outside the premier and championship.
|Dobra Signs New Deal|
Pleasing and encouraging news. We just have to play the youngsters who will no doubt be paid considerably less than the more experienced players. Squad potentially to be trimmed to free up money as well.
|Butcher: After Such a Magnificent Season We Had to Win One Trophy|
How lovely it is to reminisce the great football times we had back in the day. Certainly cheers us up in these strange times.
I recall the final very well in particular the home leg. Things were very different then when obtaining tickets and I recall driving from Lowestoft to Portman Road to buy a ticket on the morning of the game then to drive straight back home and then go back down for the game a few hours later.
I also recall the atmosphere which indeed was something else. I stood somewhere in the centre of the good old North Stand although by the end of the game I had drifted to somewhere near the back. Basically it was shoulder to shoulder and my feet barely touched the ground all match.
Great memories Terry thank you which are sadly not likely to be experienced again, not in my lifetime anyway!
|League One Expected to Be Brought to Early End|
The season needs to be finished this week. Should have been a long time ago as the majority of clubs have voted that way and that decision should be upheld. Those clubs are reportedly in a dire financial position and time and time again have said they could not afford to finish the season with behind closed doors games. It’s time the league management listened as it’s quite possible that by trying to make those clubs play the games they could be accelerating them into extinction. It’s a very tough time as it is for everyone so let’s hope common sense and courtesy prevails.
I wonder if they league would even have listened to some of the smaller clubs if they had wanted to conclude the season. I cannot help thinking that it is because some of the divisions ‘fat cats’ ie Sunderland, Portsmouth, Peterborough and our ourselves have spoken out. Would they have listened had it been the likes of AFC Wimbledon, Accrington or Rochdale?
|Unlikely League One Play-Off Extension Proposed|
This situation is unprofessional. The management committee of the league need to make the decision for themselves. Involving clubs in discussion is all very fair but it is not possible to please every club. Which ever way this falls some clubs will be unhappy. Discussions with clubs are time wasting. Management need to decide very soon.
|No Firm Outcome From League One Meeting|
Sorry about the double posting! Don’t know what happened there, I guess I must have done an Arkwright and stuttered on the keyboard!
