|Team to play Charlton|
at 22:08 16 Apr 2021
Going to be difficult for Phil to do his pre-match write up on how Town may line up lunchtime. We know there will be changes but how many and might we see some players in unexpected positions?
Presumably PC will play his preferred formation but not a certainty, and how many former ITFC Academy players will start; will we have any surprises on the bench?
We start afresh tomorrow.

When Blackpool gain promotion, via the play offs, we will be able to say we did the double over them scoring 6 goals in the process.

We lose 3-0 and he comments that we knew how they were going to play, we should be good enough to win games like that.
Really sums up Town’s problems unfortunately to win games you have to score goals, doesn’t matter how many you let in as long as you score more than they do.
The reason we are where we are in the league has nothing to do with the defence we are incapable of scoring. We don’t create enough, nor do we convert enough chances.
Collectively they need a damned good shaking. I feel so sorry for PC but he must have seen games, and talked to others at Sky who have had the misfortune to draw the short straw and cover our games.
I really hope PC has got what it takes.

Worrying that someone who tells it how he sees it didn’t trust himself enough to face the media.
You can only assume that he is in turmoil and questioning if he has made a false move.
In reality Marcus Evans may have left his biggest mistake to the last. On reflection it would have been wiser to have handed the managers role to Dyer and Butcher on a caretaker basis allowing the new owners to appoint from the top down, new CEO, then a new manager.
Having said that there is a job to be done and I am sure PC is more than capable of doing it, as long as it is something he wants to do.
I really do hope that come Tuesday evening that collectively PC, his support team, and players show an appropriate level of commitment.

Guess we all know what Boris will announce later. While the trade is very anti I’m sure they would change their minds if the alternative was, to retain social distancing, that the number allowed in each establishment was drastically reduced.

Looks like the Charlton v Lincoln game will be rescheduled for that evening. Only other games are Blackpool v Doncaster plus of course Town away to Shrewsbury.
Five of the six could be still in with a chance of making the play offs.
|Reducing the number of older players in the team.|
at 08:46 30 Mar 2021
Everyone seems to be able to give reason why nearly all of our older players shouldn’t be here next year but let’s look at it from a different angle.
Suppose you were only able to pick two outfield players over the age of 25 in your starting eleven. Who would you select and why?

Anyone else confused by the advertising.
apparently it is going to help local authorities with regards to provision of cycle lanes but doesn’t actually ask if you ride a bike.
|Next Saturday’s game is so important|

PC has his first chance to spend consecutive days on the training field. Will br interesting to see who makes the starting eleven, who makes the brnch, and who is missing.
Biggest question for me is what formation will we start with. We all know he prefers 4-2-3-1 but think it is possible that he will admit that with choices he has he has to have two up front.
Hopefully we fill also see a significant change of attitude from the players. Currently too many are going through the motions, doing no more than they have to, just doing a job.
Playing football needs to be more than just a job, it should be an adventure., an adventure shared by a group with a collective goal. That seems to be what Dyer and Butcher seek to achieve.
I hope PC , and his full coaching team, manages to find the time to go to Hull Tuesday evening and watch the U23’s in action. Will give those in the fringe a chance to impress.
|Any other Games yet to be rescheduled|
at 10:43 6 Mar 2021
Apart from Town ( v Shrewsbury) the only game currently rescheduled for last mid week of the season is Blackpool v Doncaster. Looks like we will have game in hand on most of our rivals.
Silly perhaps but would prefer 3pts in the bag to a game in hand.
|Could anyone else come in for Town?|
at 12:46 1 Mar 2021
Not heard any mention of Evans signing any agreement that negotiations with this US consortium are exclusive.
Now it seems there is some idea what Evans wants from any deal perhaps someone else might come in and talk to ME.
