|Ashton: Category One a Possibility, But it Doesn't Excite Me|
Right now focussing on the Cat 1 status for the Academy is not a good short term use of funds, and that 's what a CEO is all about. Short term we need promotion, get top half of the Championship and the same question will yield a different answer, I am certain of that.
We are where we are, and we need an over-ready L1 promotion squad.
|Legend Butcher Exits U23s Role|
I'm sure TB will be around in some capacity - but without knowing the circumstances we can't say how this decision was made: as it wasn't within a week of Cook or Ashton arriving that suggests that everyone has sat down, and maybe Terry B really wants to enjoy his retirement now, rather than committing to a 4 or 5 year journey. As recent events have shown, life is short, so respect either way, and I'm certain he'll be on Radio Suffolk a lot as our Legend in Residence.
|Town Confirm Fraser Signing|
If he turns out to be like the last Fraser we had here a few years ago, then we are in for an exciting season.
|Gibbs Set For Norwich Subject to Compensation Agreement|
Bit of a slap in the face: we just seem unable to bring our youngsters through from U18 promise to 1st team fulfilment. It pains me to say it, but Norwich do have a far better record on that front. And they are 2 divisions above us. And Category 1.
We've got a long road ahead of us....
Good luck Liam, hope you get a good deal, and then move on from Norwich quickly!
|Trio Sign First Pro Deals|
Great to see us selecting some quality. Would be brilliant to see at least one of them make inroads into the first team squad this year.
|Rotherham Turn Down Second Town Crooks Bid|
This could be a Norris type saga, but I trust our current management team/CEO have other irons... we may see more coming from abroad soon as well... time will tell.
|Marcus Evans Branding Comes Down|
Hopefully more sponsorship arriving soon. Commercial revenue is crucial to our success beyond this season and L1.
|Downes Linked With Posh|
The next few days will tell us if he is buying into our ambitions. If not, no need to slate him, he just doesn't want to be aiming for the same target with ITFC. He might shine elsewhere, but I totally trust Ashton to do great business if he does go. If not, I'll cheer him on in a blue shirt, with no grudge held.
|Cook: Things Are Taking Shape|
Halves a professional squad and added 6. I reckon 2 or 3 more then we have a good senior squad and some U23 gems to develop.
