So that's it
at 22:33 1 Jan 2019

I hope we change our transfer window strategy accordingly. No expensive loans thank you. If we can end some of the current ones that wouldn't hurt. We've got two windows to construct a cohesive unit to challenge next year. I hope that MM and PL are pragmatic enough to see that.

I had a dream
at 19:44 8 Nov 2018

Last night I had a dream in which I met my future self. I told me that Ipswich will sign an old striker from a team in red in January, and that he will score on his debut. I told me that I thought the player might be from Sunderland. I told me to stick £100 on it.

No current players from Sunderland fit the bill. But what about ex players, who also now play for a team in red?

Anyway, long story short, we’re signing Murphy on loan in January, he’s going to score on his debut, stick the mortgage on it.

Management of expectations
at 14:36 25 Oct 2018

"But we certainly want to try and not - at the very worst - let that gap get any bigger and hopefully reduce it."

This language really concerns me. Hoping that the gap doesn't open up further, is that the limit of our current aspirations? Sounds like death throes to me...

...For the record, I was quite pleased with his appointment, and quite a bit of the summer business at the time, although there was always the worry that it was too much change too soon.

But, I was quite concerned in his performance in press conferences (I know, I know). He just doesn't seem that bright. If you compare to Mick, he's a sharp character, clearly a smart guy. I'm just a little concerned that Paul doesn't seem to have the mental agility to turn this kind of situation around.

It was brought into sharper focus for me after watching the Sir Bob documentary at the weekend. He was very sharp. You need to have plenty between the ears to be a sustainably successful manager at this level and higher. The more I hear Hurst talk, I'm just not sure he's got enough.

I still say we should see if he can do something by Christmas. These are his players, and another complete rebuild in January under a new manager will see us relegated for sure.

Throw-in coach
at 09:26 5 Sep 2018

Apologies if already posted.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/45405476

Really interesting piece. When you think about it, why wouldn't you have a coach for a setpiece that occurs 40-50 times in a game? We have certainly had some players in the past who would've benefitted from this *coughdiallocough*. Probably a luxury that we can't afford in the foreseeable future, but I don't see why this won't become more commonplace.

iFollow stoopid question
at 08:22 21 Aug 2018

Dear TWTD brethren,

It is not clear to me whether or not my iFollow subscription entitles me to watch the game or not. The article on the ITFC website sheds no light on this, and I'm trying to figure out if this will cost me £10 over my existing subscription. Your help in this endeavour is much appreciated, if you can offer any further informed insight.

Yours humbly,

Cotty

FAO Phil re: one more possible signing

Do you have a quote for that? There's nothing that Hurst has said in the story that backs up the headline? Or is this "TWTD understand"? Clarification please! And thanks.

Set piece delivery
at 08:39 8 Aug 2018

These signings all seem on the surface like exciting prospects. But one concern I still have is where are the set piece deliveries going to come from? Waghorn had real quality in this department. Are any of the new lads specialists? How is Nolan on this front, anyone know?

The two Shrews, Jackson, Tilt and a set piece specialist would have me writhing around on the floor drooling...

I love David McGoldrick. By far our most talented and entertaining player over recent years, but surely nobody who knows anything about him could say this of him? His agent has done a good job there...

Brexit - again
at 09:48 17 Jul 2018

I haven't posted about this for months, as there seemed little point, but the manner and pace with which this whole debacle is descending is, I think, worth commenting on.

Firstly, the legality of the campaign.



There is also increasing evidence that Russian money was funnelled into the campaign, in a bid to destabilise the EU and the West.

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2018/jun/09/arron-banks-russia-brexit-meeti

In the meantime, the Tory party is cleaving itself in two, demonstrating what we all knew, that May (and to be honest anybody else) is incapable of bringing the two wings of her party together.

And in the background, Anna Soubry appears to be the leader of the opposition.



Jeremy is nowhere to be seen, and in many peoples' eyes, he is complicit with this situation we find ourselves in. Where IS he?

This whole thing is a shambles from top to bottom, it is not democracy in action, it is a country slowly but increasingly quickly committing financial and moral suicide, largely for the benefit of a small number of people with a large amount of wealth, most of whom are swiftly moving that wealth offshore.

Please can someone sensible reassure me that this is all a great idea, and we're going to be doing great, and we haven't at all sh*t all over our children's futures?
