Steed: We Wanted a Club Aligned With Our Values and That's What We Got
at 10:24:34

WTF MickMillsTash ? When you look for investment, you look beyond the current (OK 10 years) travails which created the opportunity, and see what underpins the prospect, work out what it will take to revitalise and capitalise the prospect, and decide if it is a fit and something that you can achieve. The man just articulated that on behalf of the owners far better than I just did and you just want to have a sly dig, probably down to the North American origins ?

I live and breath North American business and culture daily, and while it is different, that is not a reason to negatively judge.....and so much better to be proud of who was willing to invest in our Club, rather than having to decide whether to keep my season ticket because of blood money being ploughed in to my Club; a decision facing certain supporters around the country today. Get a grip !

McKenna: A Chance For the Young Players
at 13:02:26

To be fair IpswichT62OldBoy, where else was any scout going to be on Saturday....no other games going on round here! Unfortunately there are rules around youth players which does not mean we have the control we would like re transfers, so the best thing we can do is create a real pathway for our younger players to ensure they want to stay with us.....and believe we now are.

Bakinson Training With Bristol City U23s After Town Fail to Take Option
at 10:04:18

Good luck Tyreeq, you never let anyone down here and showed some good ability.

Definitely good enough for League 1, just not good enough for us. Enough said.

McKenna: They're Really Driven About Achieving Something This Year
at 20:07:56

Something = Promotion. Nothing more and nothing less, and should be well within the ability of the Manager and group to achieve it. Let's back them and enjoy the ride. COYB

Cook Eyeing Dobra

Come on Dobs, light it up in pre season, convince ITFC you are worth keeping faith with. We all know there is a player in there, but time has almost run out and the only way would be down I suspect. Good luck !

Huddersfield and Boro Linked With Simpson
at 10:47:29

Quite right blues1, not allowing for wages, we are in profit on transfers since the new (got to stop calling them that) ownership took over I believe....and they have always said funds are available regardless. The biggest challenge is getting better players than we have to come to the Club, which likely means we will need to wait a little to get (e.g.) Championship level players in, as they will be waiting to see if a better option in a League above ours comes in. We have done fantastic business so far, have some younger players entering the First Team arena, and time to put the icing on the Summer transfer cake. If Simpson was a fit for our new style, then we might be fighting for him, but an assessment has clearly been made and the lad will move on. Get off his back though as am sure all he has ever wanted was a chance at ITFC and it is not the current regime who hindered that, but they have taken a view and as they say "in the interests of the Club". Nothing to gripe about, good luck to him and am sure we will get at least a fair price.

Town Confirm Leigh Signing
at 18:17:36

Welcome Greg, hopefully your career to date has been leading to this opportunity and if our recruitment team think you are the man for the job then that is good enough for me. Smash it and travel up the leagues with us ! Good luck and COYB.

Burns and Baggott Could Win Caps
at 12:15:34

Looks like Wes may get to test himself against the top and most in form European countries. Brilliant for him and maybe a thought toward Tom Lawrence at Derby. He could be shining at Town and still has time to get back in with Wales but is at a Club still in freefall with Derby purchase about to collapse again! Perfect signing this summer....show him what he is missing Wes, good luck, enjoy, and please please please stay fit !

Burns: Pulling On a Wales Shirt Would Be Among My Proudest Moments
at 12:07:55

If Burns does make an impression with Wales, even if offers do not come in or are unacceptable given his new contract, we will need to consider cover sooner rather than later for his position.....what if Wales make the World Cup and he makes the squad?! Great for Wes, but that is best part of 2 months out of our season at its busiest and most pivotal point.

West Ham and Arsenal Eyeing Chirewa
at 16:21:02

All about the "Pathway" we keep hearing about. If it is real, then he should stay, if it is smoke and mirrors then good luck to the lad. It is all on us as a Club to get this right, esp as it has now been as a problem area by the new management. I feel we will get this more right than wrong going forward, and when players leave (until we elevate our status in the Leagues), as they surely will, we will get the best value possible.

Burns Nominated For PFA Fans' Player of the Year
at 10:37:35

Well done Wes but has no chance against a League 1 colossus in Will Keane.....how broken a Club were we to get so little out of him! Thank goodness those days are gone and hopefully more like Wes coming through the door this summer as we def need help on other flank and up top as a minimum.

Fair to say if McKenna did not want him here next season, then he would not have played the games required to trigger the contract extension. We are better than that.....now.

Morsy Linked With Wigan But No Contact With Town
at 14:31:42

Even I could have come up with this link, true or not. It is football, but the good news is we now have owners and MA running the show, and if ANYONE leaves, including our Captain, it will be on our terms, more than ever before. Players will come and go but we will keep moving forward, and personally I don't think Morsy leaves for a relegation battle at Wigan !

Hirst on Town's List of Potential New Strikers
at 10:40:38

....and the rumour mill begins. Suspect we will be linked with all manner of players this summer, but that when we do our business, we will not get warning and probably will not be for the players people think. Relax all, and wait for real news rather than idle speculation which I appreciate does keep ITFC folks coming back to TWTD through the summer.

Holy: It Was a Privilege
at 07:06:07

Who does not like this guy. And to be fair, without the new owners/project, about as good as you would hope for in League 1, but as others have stated, Walton has raised the bar now so there is not turning back. Nevertheless, I still wonder if he was in a better Town team, would his confidence have built and he nailed down the 1 shirt? We will never know so thanks Tomas and sincerely, the very best of luck for the future. One of the good guys.

Ndaba Named Salford Supporters' Player of the Year
at 20:05:58

Feel like we have a first team in which there is room for youth to get game time and state their case. Challenge for Corrie is the quality shown by Baggott makes me think 1 will go on loan again next season..... hopefully with a call back option.

Well done regardless. We seem to be able to develop defenders..... now for a striker or 2!!!

Aluko Triggers One-Year Option
at 17:29:12

Played well, really well at times, but not trusted to keep his place. Glad he is staying but fully expect better and younger players to come in to the Club in his position, so back up and mentoring role for a really good pro next season.

McKenna: It’s Already Pretty Fixed in My Mind What Needs to Be Improved in the Summer
at 08:46:37

Geez calm down all. Results have not been ideal of late but our Club and now our Team is showing signs of rediscovering its identity. This is NOT KMs team, he has simply shaped what he had and massively improved us without any spend. Let the Club do their thing off the pitch and KM have a pre season before any judgement. I for one see no reason why we cannot make the adjustments and be a force next season. Trust the process! COYB
