Harry and co are smashing it! Really great to listen to some well balanced, knowledgable and passionate ITFC content, I highly recommend to all supporters.

Our 'support' is so weird.

Keep calm lads, try not to wet yourselves before the train has left the station.
The kind of negativity, pessimism and and lack of basic football knowledge I'm reading is going to make for an atmosphere just as toxic as McCarthy's last days if people aren't appeased soon.

Personally I'm going to wait till ten games in before I start sh1tting myself, but please do all carry on it makes for rather amusing reading.
Norwich Tickets purchased!
at 10:02 13 Aug 2018

£120 lighter after purchasing for me, my old man, my brother in law and his old man. Pleased that we managed to get the same seats as our old season ticket but I'm surprised they weren't already taken.

Can't wait, it'll be my first game of the season and my first trip to Portman Road since Wolves at home last season, COYB!
Jon Nolan
at 13:38 8 Aug 2018

I just gave that compilation video of Nolan at Shrewsbury a look.
I've never watched Nolan play knowingly and in truth had no idea what to expect, I'm aware YouTube clips can be misleading but I was pleasantly surprised at what I saw.

Not only was he rather comfortable on both feet but he showed a good range of passing and made some great runs beyond too! I know he got 9 goals last season but judging from the video I'd be surprised if he got close to that in the Championship this year.
There were moments when he was taking a nice touch, turning on a sixpence and laying the ball off outwide that I thought he looked a bit like Ryan Woods, which is most pleasing.

There's no one in the squad quite like him, I suspect he will be given a free role in that number ten position. I'm very, very excited to see him play for Ipswich Town and really like the fact he's coming out saying he's confident of making the step up.

It's been an incredibly slow day at work...

half the residents are at a Birthday party, two of them on holiday and the remaining two or three have been out and about or keeping themselves to themselves in their room. I'm up to date with paper work and the place is clean as a whistle so as a result I've been posting like a mad man on here today, apologies if my over zealous attempt to cure boredom has spoilt anyone's Sunday. I've enjoyed talking to you all though, even though I did get a bit of clog regarding my view on Jonas Knudsen ;)

Cheers TWTD!

It's just struck me that I know next to nothing about most of our signings..

Isn't it refreshing? Kind of scary too, I'm really looking forward to seeing what Paul Hurst's Ipswich Town looks like.
How many of you blokes are daft enough to have grown your hair out?
at 18:03 20 Jul 2018

I’ve not had a proper haircut in over a year now. In my mind I look like a cross between Andre Pirlo and Brad Pitt, however in reality it’s probably more McKenzie Crook meets Frank Gallagher...

Any of you chaps got long locks? Any advice on how to cultivate and take care of it? I need someone experienced in having a mighty man maine to guide me through this testing time. xoxo

I just watched this video, I assume the issues being discussed are the inspiration for your recent avatar change? Very sorry state of affairs.

Lee Howey - "Massively Violent & Decidedly average"
at 13:09 12 Jul 2018

I had this book recommended to me by a mate that's a Mackem, just started it. I didn't know much of the chap before getting the book other than he's Steve Howey's Brother but turns out he was a youth here at Ipswich and that Terry Butcher signed him for his hometown club Sunderland after a spell in non league.

Enjoying the book so far, I think it's the sort of no nonsense style that many on the board would potentially enjoy.

"Lee Howey was inspired to write this book after reading the autobiographies of other footballers. These were household names with glory-laden careers whose exploits on the pitch will never be forgotten. Yet, despite access to such fabulous raw material, they have mostly produced bloody awful books - predictable, plodding, repetitive, self-important and just plain boring. They may have been better footballers than Howey, but he has written the most entertaining football memoir you are ever likely to read. Not that Lee Howey's football career is in any way undistinguished. He won the First Division Championship with his beloved Sunderland in 1995 and played in the Premier League against some of the most celebrated names in English football, including Jurgen Klinsmann, Ryan Giggs, Eric Cantona, Gianfranco Zola, Peter Schmeichel, Ian Wright, Alan Shearer and Fabrizio Ravanelli - and not always unsuccessfully. It wasn't all assaults upon the kneecaps on wet Tuesday nights in Hartlepool (though there is plenty of that too). This honest, thoughtful and hilarious book may not end with an unforgettable game at Wembley, or a 100th England cap. However, it will amuse and delight fans of all teams in its portrait of the game of football before it disappeared up its own backside."
Any one having a flutter tonight?

I haven't had a bet on the World Cup since my success in the group stages - as a fun outsider chance bet I like the look of Maguire to score from a Trippier assist 33/1

I'm delirious, right now I full on believe we're going to win the World Cup FFS.
at 17:30 3 Jul 2018

I've spent all afternoon sipping Ghostie and listening to the lightning seeds on repeat while allowing my brain to get carried away with itself. My mates arrive in a half hour, the beer is cold, the garden chairs are lined up in the front room like a makeshift terrace and I'm wearing my lucky pants.

It's commmmming home, it's commmmming home, it's commmmming home, it's coming!

This will anger up the Jason Cundy defence league this morning...

Poor performance from Pickford tonight in my opinion.
at 20:57 28 Jun 2018

Can't blame him for the goal but the amount of times he spilt the ball, failed to claim it or parried it straight back into a dangerous area was unacceptable in my opinion.

I know he's in the team for the work he does with his feet but honestly that was diabolical.
Is anyone watching "Safe" on Netflix?
at 12:50 28 Jun 2018

You might be interested to know that the chap singing the title song is from Ipswich, although his family are from North America, hence the accent. If anyone ever watched that "Orange Unsigned" show on T4 a decade or so ago he was the front man of the Ipswich band that won it.

Really looking forward to today's game and expecting another win, as I assume most of you are. I hope the leaked team is correct, RLC really looked a cut above at the end of the last game, reminded me a bit of Pogba when he's on form.

I haven't watched any Panama games and have little to no knowledge of their squad or team bar a few individuals who play in the MLS, so it'll be an interesting watch.

I'm going to go with a 3-0 to England, Harry Kane to bag a brace again.
Herman in the crowd going mental when the penno was awarded!
at 17:41 22 Jun 2018

Any one else spot him? :')
Ruben Loftus-Cheek
at 21:00 18 Jun 2018

Surely RLC starts next game ahead of Dele Alli? He looked superb when he came on, cut above any of the other England midfielders and he only played 15 minutes or so!
Libero's England Line Up VS Tunisia
at 10:13 17 Jun 2018

1. Jordan Pickford, GK

2. Kyle Walker. DRC
5. Jon Stones, DC
6. Harry Maguire, DLC

12. Kieran Trippier, RWB
18. Ashley Young, LWB

4. Eric Dier, MC
8. Jordan Henderson, MC
7. Jesse Lingard, AMC

10. Raheem Sterling CF
9. Harry Kane, CF

- In an ideal world I'd have gone for Nick Pope inbetween the sticks but it's clear from the build up and squad number selections that Pickford is going to get the nod.

Sterling starts as a centre forward but in reality has somewhat of a free role. I don't understand any one that's calling for Alli to start over Lingard, he's one of the first name's on my team sheet.

It's possible that Cahill will get the nod ahead of Stones, however I'm leaning more towards Southgate sticking with giving Stones the opportunity, especially against lesser opposition like Tunisia.
