Imagine how good it would feel
at 22:45 3 Oct 2021

to log in to your favourite message board every day and discuss the ins and outs of a succesful winning football team. There are probably lots of posters on here who have never had the opportunity to experience that, I feel for them.

It gets so tiring reading the same sh1t different day threads on here ad infinitum, and don't get me wrong, they are completely justified, but just imagine being able to discuss long unbeaten runs, how we could turn two goal victories into three goal victories, who we could maybe sign to move us up on to a different level of success, imagine being able to discuss winning something! Anyfookinthing.

Will it ever happen again, or are we truly cursed?

No Ryder cup thread?
at 22:21 23 Sep 2021

I'll be honest I'm not much of a golf fan, more of a johnny come lately armchair expert when the Ryder Cup is on, I rarely watch much golf at all but I do love the RC.

What do we think our chances are? Who should I be watching out for?

Will I want to punch Americans for screaming 'in the hole' by Sunday?

Really good BBC article
at 05:39 14 Sep 2021

Quite long but a good read about the challenges of becoming a pro footballer, talks to two players who started together.

I'll confess I didn't realise who the one that 'made it' was until I got to the end of the article, no mention of Ipswich hospital strangely though.

He's got to stand up now hasn't he?
at 16:27 11 Sep 2021

This is down to him, I'm not saying he can't turn it around but he needs to be honest and admit this is his mess, not cr4p players, not injuries, not gelling, not some weird curse, not an attitude around the club, it's down to him now.

He appears to have got everything he asked for, and some, if he wants to retain some respect he needs to start accepting some blame.

Finally got around to watching the ESPN Mariner tribute
at 21:21 8 Sep 2021

Watched it in the last couple of days, you could tell he really touched people as a man and I'm glad that I did watch it.

He was 'my' player growing up, as a lad when he scored for England, living as I did surrounded by West Ham fans it was almost like I scored.

An incredible player, and it seems an incredible man too.

Sorry, a bit late to the party but quite touched by it.

No one likes us, do we care?
at 23:13 9 Aug 2021

A bit of an odd position to be in as a Town fan isn't it? Most fans of other clubs have always had a bit of a soft spot for us when you meet them, aside from the obvious ones up the road. Looks like that might be changing now, probably needed, probably to our benefit, but it's going to take some adjusting to I think.

Moving forward
at 21:58 5 Aug 2021

I think it's plain to see by most, if not all on here that the ambition immediately is to assemble a side capable of getting us up quickly and then form the backbone of a Championship squad.

Currently recruitment seems to along the lines of buying players to fit into a Cook team, and if we want a quick impact then that's the way it's likely to be, but what do we think happens when/if, no when we go up?

With a large team here now, and strategies for the club being put in place across the board do we think we'll continue to recruit to the manager's desires, at the very least while Cook is with us, or longer term do we think that there will be more of a club ethos and model that managers will need to work within?

Being mischeveous I might also suggest that has crept in a bit already, Cook wasn't a gamechanger appointment, and while I believe he has their 100% backing, and is getting players provided that he's asking for, I wonder if the fact we haven't seen his trademark formations and styles being drilled in preseason friendlies is because he's being asked to adapt his was to something closer to what may become a longer term Club way of playing.

I don't think it will happen, but if we had a disaster this season and Cook went at the end of it, then any new manager then has to roll with players hand picked for Cook's style, or we start again recruiting for a slight variation.

So while it seems we're running with Cook's methods for now, do we think that longer term we'll start to look to have an identity that managers will need to work toward and with?

Sorry, very long day, very, very tired, lots and lots of words, not even convinced myself how much sense they make.

Question for Joe
at 18:36 29 Jul 2021

Assuming you're still the ITFC FM dude.

What's this summer mean for you when doing this for FM22(?) I would imagine in a normal year you'd just adjust your existing player profiles, add a couple of new signings and new youngsters and be good to go.

Is this like starting from scratch or do you just rely on what has been done for players at their previous clubs?

Would North Korea exist if it had lots of oil?
at 00:11 1 Jul 2021

I guess this could be applied to some other places too, but if North Korea had some valuable resources in abundant qualities would it still exist in the world as it currently is?

Where do we draw the line on what a country can subject its people to before we interfere?

Aside from the fact it appears they are suffering quite badly with covid there's nothing currently happening to provoke this thread, I'm just genuinely interested on what people's opinions are on when and whether the world should interfere, be it N Korea or elsewhere?
