I was a month short of my twelfth birthday at the time and my dad took me to the match. I still recall the headlines of "little Chelsea holding the mighty Burnley" !!!

Blueboy you seem to have a bit of a problem. In the context above it is self evident that when I say that they show quite some promise this refers to the possibility that they make it as professional footballers. The majority of under eighteen players do not make the grade. You just have to look through the Leiston or Woodbridge teams to see that!
As a badged coach I can tell you that it is the pushy parent or angry amateur who needs to win everything. The professional coach looks to take a more intelligent approach with young players.
|U18s Exit Premier Cup at Leiston|
I for one don’t think the under 18s should be about trying to cover themselves in glory.
I am more interested to hear whether they are trying to play good creative football demonstrating skills and ability. From comments above it would seem that in the first half at least they showed quite some promise.

Henryblue. You can’t help yourself can you
“Micks hatred of ball playing center half” FFS who do you think signed him?
But hey don’t let the truth get in the way of a moan.
|Smith Close to Colorado Switch|
I can’t help but note that his player rating is close to being the lowest on the squad list.
How does that reconcile with the majority of the posts on here. Could it be that there is just a hard core of moaners who use every topic to berate MM and ME!
I simply do not see him as being at the level we need if we are to make progress therefore thanks Tommy and good luck.

Prebbs007 “retarded deluded stubborn idiot”
You and your ilk make me despair for my club that I have supported for 60 years. You react like spoilt children in a hysterical paddy - grow up.
Fulham are a quality side with financial clout. We were a goal up and holding them by virtue of hard work from 11 players, albeit that we were beginning to tire. The comes a dumb sending off, not the managers fault, and with 10 on the pitch the legs go after all the hard work that went before.
Last night I was so flat after the game but this morning the sun rose as usual I didn’t feel the need to berate and insult the club I support. Life goes on
|Bishop Out for the Rest of the Season|
Some of the comments on here such as get rid, waste of space etc. are so depressing. I guess these are the same people who demand bright young players are played every game and pillory the manager when he doesn't flog them to death but tries to protect them and uses them sparingly, and instead uses proven pros as his workhorses. MM has not been afraid to play youngsters and he has tried to use his old pros as the mainstay. of the team. I applaud him for that.
The relentless demands on players today is a serious issue for the sport. Players once injured frequently suffer hamstring type injuries on their return from a long layoff. Not MMs fault just a fact of life in modern football.
I for one would hate to see Town let Bish go only for him to blossom into a Premiership player over the next year or so. If that happened MM would get crucified by the moaners.
|Ipswich Town 2-2 Sheffield Wednesday - Match Report|
Ironic isn’t it that Wednesday grab a draw by hoofing a ball into a lump of a centre forward. Very frustrating but with such a big guy up front there is always a chance of loosing a goal like that. It was a last and desperate throw of the dice by the Wednesday manager.
On the whole I thought we played quite well and certainly deserved a win.
|McCarthy: Not Brilliant But Great Result|
Blue machines - The moaners on here are the ones spouting drivel - Celina isn't his type of player and he only picks his favorites etc.
Well clearly he believes Celina has something to offer - he signed him after all! He held him back in the first half and I agree with his observation that Celina would not have had much impact but offered us an impact option second half.
As for only playing his favourites he has played a number of youngsters but makes the point in interview that if they stop performing he's on their case and they are likely to be out of the side - what's wrong with that?
Our squad has good spirit but in reality are short on creative quality. In fairness they are trying to pass the ball around and are certainly not in hoofball mode, contrary to the comments of some on here. We are exceeding any reasonable expectation at the moment but hey don't let facts get in the way of a good prejudiced moan!
|Goldson Loan Deal Runs Out of Time|
All those who keep spouting the "we should have got this sorted weeks ago line" need to get real. Do you not understand that in this window there is not a pool of available unattached players. For us to sign a decent centre half then another club has to be prepared to let one go and that in turn depends on them having someone coming in. It is a chain reaction, not unlike the chain encountered when buying and selling houses. Inevitably this means it all goes to the wire and if one fails to complete there can be consequences for everyone in the chain.
Thats the real world but I guess its much easier for the simple minded to say MM and ME are crxp!
|Goldson Move in Doubt After Brighton's Denswil Deal Collapses|
I despair - where have you boys been the last couple of months. Our basic transfer business has been completed and in my view, and the view of many posters on here it was done well. It was under the radar and our business with Rangers is to be commended.
Here we have an emergency signing to cover exceptional injuries on a loan arrangement. Why all the bleating about all eggs in one basket, typical Ipswich etc. Most of our business is done and dusted.
The report notes that Town have alternative targets but as with many such loan arrangements they require the linking of ins with outs.
|McCarthy Extremely Proud of Youngsters|
To those who can't bring themselves to give MM any credit and still feel the need to lecture him it is worth reflecting that it is MM who provides the environment in which Brian Klug and the academy operate. So yes credit to Klug & Co but the main man is MM.
|Town Sign Wolves Defender Iorfa On Loan|
Mkbobby - I agree with your comments but you have to remember that the usual culprits have a fixed mindset and the facts have to be interpreted so as to reinforce their prejudices. It is though encouraging that the majority of posts on this are positive. Makes a nice change!
|McCarthy: Fitting Tribute to Sir Bobby|
Give the man a break. Week after week a section of fans(?) on here have a foul mouthed rant at him and then get all holier than thou when he strikes out.
Just imagine how would you react if having done a good job for a couple of years and then had a poor twelve months your boss went on at you week after week telling you that you were total c**p. Would you feel bullied, resentful or just not care?
Set aside our sometimes dismal performance this year. No one deserves the bile that people pour on his head from the safety of the internet. ITFC IS BETTER THAN THAT SURELY.
