Burton Away
at 15:27 29 Jul 2021

Not sure if clubs have decided on a policy regarding away matches, unless I've missed something. I'm assuming it may be piecemeal, with each club essentially announcing the same thing re away fans? The EFL seems to be waiting on clubs to do this. Very likely they will have similar conditions of entry to our home games.

So is a smartphone now mandatory? I have avoided as I just want a phone to do, well, phone things.

Olympic Sport you don't normally watch

The hockey is good, but my God, if you thought football VAR was bad for the game, take a look at the hockey version (GBR v Germany Women's being a good example).

With the Tokyo Olympics opening on Friday

I'd second that: just finished watching it... So many great memories, back stories that add to the emotion.
"In the quest for perfection we may find excellence" is a quote used. Let's hope we find it again at ITFC like we did at London 2012.

Portman Road masks

Stopping dangerous and drunk people from driving clearly saves lives with no collateral damage. I have had to say goodbye to 4 people since lockdown 1: one from covid, 3 from suicide.

What beer is on sale at Portman Road this season?

Two more years, then hopefully Adnams back on the pumps... :-)

Fruit and veg growing successes and failures....

I was just about to post that my blueberry bushes (well, 2 out of 3) are the best in 15 years... otherwise, everything seemed to bolt during the last hot spell, so we lost a bit of goodness. Raspberries are new this year so anything is a bonus. Strawberries were good this year too.
Wondering what to plant next... any suggestions welcome.

at 18:33 16 Jul 2021

Given the new owners' aim to keep things local (i.e. Ed Sheeran) my money's on Greene King or Adnams, with Aspalls' cider.
Personally I don't think you can go wrong with Bovril.

Bishop only scored 1 less goal than Fraser last season
at 13:49 15 Jul 2021

There's more to his play than penalties, but as England showed, penalties aren't a given.
Add to that, Bishop has had many chances with many managers to realise that incredible potential he showed in 2014-5, and injuries aside, his attitude could well be questioned at times. We all know where PC stands on attitude. Time for him to stand on his own two feet elsewhere.

The Flynn Downes Depreciation Thread...
at 14:29 14 Jul 2021

Interesting last point @Kropotkin123: there is definitely more sense in looking at the current financial side of things in isolation, partly because the market is depressed, and partly because we are a L1 side, and that alone means anything over £1m would be exceptional. If we need a certain type of player to make the project work (i.e. promotion and a squad that can hold its own in the Champ without another huge turnover) then it makes total sense.

All a tad quiet on here today
at 11:58 7 Jul 2021

All has gone quiet for a while now. I'm not doubting our new CEO and manager, but if the season started on Saturday what would our matchday squad look like? Will Cook still have to eat humble pie to get some U23-training 1st teamers to at least warm the bench?

Major institution takes advantage of the pandemic. People in powerful positions are going to keep doing this for as long as they can. They can use the "we're being responsible" line but that's not their true motivation.
Ask Matt Hancock.

BBC Archive clip about football kits from 1978
at 16:20 28 Jun 2021

10x that price now for a kid's full kit for a Prem club.
If there's one thing I'd like to see it would be ITFC kits being worn by all the local kids, rather than Liverpool or Spurs. Gamechanger need to find a way to make that happen, other than just the obvious (get into the Prem and establish ourselves).

Unless we reach the Prem, these type of specialists, including a dedicated club medical doctor etc, are likely to be part time, paid on a periodic consultation basis. However, it would show intent to invest in this now.

The new season, effectively starts today
at 11:35 26 Jun 2021

There's a few to be pulled from that 30: Lankester gone, but Bishop, Dobra, Kenlock and Jackson could go too, with hopefully (as above) one or two of those guys getting another chance.
That brings it down to 25 potentially, and we could see as many as 7 of those go out on loan elsewhere, leaving the U-23s with a nice 18 plus any youngsters that need a bigger challenge.

I might be a bit too much of an optimist, but I think there may be one or two surprises coming up from the U-23/U-18s, and that might even include a player from last season who's suddenly realised that Man City aren't going to be racing for his signature so he needs to knuckle down and start working hard here.
Still, 2 or 3 more signings I'd reckon as well.

3rd world class corruption. Hancock, Harding and Johnson should be in jail by year end if we actually still have a judicial system that is.
