Town Officially Premier League Club at AGM
at 14:04:55

JewellintheTown - the Youtubers are also dire. Nowhere near the standard of League 1/Championship Youtubers. But depressingly the ones I've seen all have a zillion subscribers - so they aren't gonna change.

McKenna Contract Confirmation Now Expected Wednesday
at 20:41:51

He's a young manager with no Premier League experience - will he be any good?

No, wait a minute . . . .

YEY!

Chelsea Look Away From McKenna
at 19:07:53

Anyway, Chelsea will have other opportunities to look at him a third of the way through the season and again two thirds of the way through when the next sackings take place.

McKenna Representatives Hold Manchester United Talks - Report
at 08:13:31

62WasBest - I agree with this except for the agents bit. Yes, they can do some digging, but he could easily publicly distance himself from it -'all my concentration is on preparing for our new season etc.' . He has left the impression that he is losing interest in us and they are testing his exit options. This is bad for him and for us and I don't think, if he stays, he will get the warmth he would otherwise have deserved. (On a geographical note, Chelsea are based in Surrey so hardly commutable)

McKenna: After the Seasons We've Had There Was Always Going to Be Speculation
at 21:05:57

'There was always going to be speculation' is fair enough. But now it turns out that his representatives have been actively talking to ManU while Ten Hag is STILL IN POST. Oh, and to Chelski too. This is not speculation, is it? That's trying very hard to get a move. I'm afraid McKenna's character is on the slide here.

McKenna Among Chelsea's Top Targets
at 08:03:51

For me the most plausible explanation is that ManU have indicated to him that stuff will change following the Cup Final. This explains why he seems to be on the way out but nothing is being said. Brighton and Chelsea are just useful diversions while he waits. He's so well known at ManU that they could have the deal lined up already. And I wouldn't be surprised is MA has done the same with someone.

McKenna: After the Seasons We've Had There Was Always Going to Be Speculation

I'd be more surprised, now, to see him still at Ipswich than to see him at ManU. Ratcliffe wants a new start, McKenna is both that and yet also a part of the furniture there. The fans will give him more time than almost any other potential young recruit, and it will be like coming home for him. The style he brings is exactly what ManU want. Bluntly, I think its a no-brainer for him and them. We're waiting for the Cup final to be over.

McKenna Speculation Continues
at 17:51:01

Lightningboy - I think it is fairly clear now that McKenna intends to cash in his success with a big move. It is not TWTD's fault. It is modern football, and he is a creature of modern football, he is not a reincarnation of Robson or Ramsey. I imagine Ashton is already sounding out the Rob Edwards et al. of the football world.

McKenna Speculation Continues
at 21:01:52

Meanwhile, this can't be helping our recruitment. So you might hope that Kieran would snuff the speculation out at least in private. It's a sort of self-fulfilling prophecy if he entertains these offers because he will be damaging our preseason recruitment at the same time, making it less attractive to stay.

Breitenreiter: Changes But We Have to Remain Professional
at 16:08:14

EFL Rule states “For any league match played on or after the fourth Thursday in March, any team sheet for a league game should include at least 10 outfield players who featured on the team sheet for the league match before.” But he could put 9 of the 10 on the bench!

Blue Action Coach Greeting Ahead of Huddersfield
at 09:25:49

trncbluearmy - you keep posting but are not reading what others are actually saying. This is about pre match routine and prep.
It is not about 'loud' it is about 'when', so stupid sarcasm about sitting quietly just shows you are no engaging the issue.
When you write it is about 'in your faces' you have inadvertently explained it to yourself. In whose faces? Do you seriously think that it helps a player to have fans 'in your face'? Why to they listen to music on earpieces if loud 'in your face' fans helps them prepare more?
You are spectacularly missing the point.

Blue Action Coach Greeting Ahead of Huddersfield
at 08:31:57

We are clearly not unanimous that this is a good idea. I am one who takes the view it adds unnecessary pressure and would only be appropriate if promotion was already secured. I think this is becoming a fairly thoughtless habit. For all the fuss it is a small proportion of the fanbase who seem to have a disproportionate sense of their importance.

Coventry City 1-2 Ipswich Town - Match Report
at 01:03:48

'The Town captain moved to 14 yellow cards with a 15th on Saturday leading to a three-game ban should the Blues need the play-offs.'
I think the 15 card suspension is cut off at the end of the regular season so this is not an issue were we (sadly) to be in the play offs. The reason is the unfair disadvantage a play off team/player would suffer over against all other teams.

Charlton Boss on Omitting Town Loanees
at 14:29:02

The comments here are very kind to Jones who is known for his nasty quotes. Perhaps most famously though for complaining, "They had three crosses and scored three goals" (at Southampton I think) as a self defence when everyone pointed out that was exactly the problem. He has treated these loanees badly. He should not be excused.

McKenna: We Take the Positives From the Performance
at 09:18:02

I probably get paid a year what Kieran gets paid a week but I think I've spotted a flaw in the reasoning here. With five games to go in a season, there was no need to 'take the positives from the performance'. All that was necessary was to take the points. Several 'performers' will be returning to their clubs shortly, so it's fine to now have four bad performances and 12 points, thank you.

This is the kind of hassle we could do without at such a stage of the season. Irrespective of whether it is in some sense true, this belongs at a later meeting with the club, not on social media when all that matters is 5 wins..
