Morsy and Armin Make Debuts as Cook Makes 10 Changes
at 19:17:46

This looks like a disaster waiting to happen. How are the defence in particular ever going to build partnerships and understanding if we change the team constantly?

We need a win to get us up and running, breed confidence. 10 changes? I hope Cook knows what he's doing. Lose tonight and a tipping point will be reached with many fans.

One Club, One Community, One Town - Notes for Bolton Wanderers
at 16:19:38

Nice to read that they still bitter about the play-off second leg. Are all Bolton fans completely delusional about what happened that night? They tried to kick us off the pitch, completely lost their cool and Barry Knight got every decision right. To try and suggest Sheepshanks had anything to do with it is revisionism of the highest order. Hilarious.

Dobra Aiming to Develop Game at Colchester and Then Break Into Town Team
at 10:26:32

Love Dobra's attitude, I get the impression his self-belief borders on arrogance, which is not a bad attribute to have in a professional footballer. He certainly isn't worried about upsetting anyone or showing the opposition too much respect, as ironically we saw at Colchester in preseason with Chambers shoving him around and trying to put him back in his box.

Really hope he can be a success long term at ITFC.

Morsy Set to Sign Before Deadline

Is this a permanent deal Phil?

Outstanding signing regardless. The midfield general we so desperately need.

Cook: I'm Sure at the Minute I've Not Got Fans' Trust
at 11:34:01

I like Paul Cook and I'm very confident things will come good for us sooner or later, but he's right, of course we don't trust him yet. Regardless of the circumstances, he's won 4 games out of 21.

When we start putting results together and get into the top 6, then I'll trust him. Until then, I'll support him and hope for the best!

Coulson: There's a Bit of a Connection With Kyle
at 11:19:48

"The trouble is, so many of the lads are in the same boat and we’re all looking for similar types of houses.”

This is an important insight for fans, we need to remember that when people invoke the dreaded word "gelling", it's more than just getting to know each other on the football pitch. Working relationships are being formed, players are getting settled in the area, adapting to wholesale change in their lives etc. This process clearly takes time and has an obvious impact on seeing cohesive performances come match day. We all want to see points on the board, but we're on 5 games in with a brand new squad. More time needed before we start to judge.

Town Goal at Burton Awarded to Pigott

Typically many people do both (vote and post a response) but fwiw, you might find the forum the place to go for slightly "better" debate than here on the news comments.

Monkey_Blue, the function of the up/down vote buttons is for other people to indicate whether they agree or disagree with what is posted. Quite simple really.

Penney: The Game Should Have Been Done at Half-Time
at 10:08:47

Watched it on ifollow and agree completely, we were so much better than them for a large period of the first half and should have had the game sewn up. It's no coincidence that defensive reinforcements have been slowest to arrive and it's that area of the pitch where we are struggling.

Results have been hugely disappointing, but there is still much to be optimistic about once we find our feet and become more solid as a team. Unfortunately that's going to take time, I just hope my fellow fans can manage their disappointment enough to (as big nose would say) be on the inside p!ssing out, rather than on the outside p!ssing in. This is a massive overhaul and we need to be patient.

COYB!

Celina Given All-Clear to Return to Training

Great news for Celina. Love him as a player, but we have Edwards now who looks like he could be every bit as good and he's ours. Time to move on.

Warnock: I Didn't Have Much Choice On Coulson Move
at 13:33:41

This one is a bit weird for me, 2 years left on his contract but Warnock talks like he thinks he's lost a good player and is bitter about it.

I hope we carry on upsetting other managers, means we must be doing something right for a change!

Downes Completes Swans Move
at 13:24:01

I like Flynn as a player and expect him to push on from here, but he certainly needs to grow up a bit. If he put as much effort into his game since last summer as he did sulking that we didn't sell him to Palace, then he might have done better than Swansea City (no disrespect to them as a club).

Overall I think we've managed the situation as well as we could have done and still got decent money for him. You can guarantee we'll have a decent sell on clause, same as Dozzell.

Cowley: Jacobs Has Been “Mucked Around, Messed Around” By Town
at 13:08:41

"I found out yesterday afternoon. I told Michael, he didn’t know. I was ringing Ipswich all day Sunday, trying to find out, for everyone’s benefit.".

Of course you found out yesterday afternoon, Edwards only signed yesterday afternoon! Desperately trying to make it sound like we didn't put them in the picture, when obviously we did as soon as we could.

Cowley is full of brown stuff. If he was in the same boat, about to sign his 3rd or 4th choice target for a given position when the 1st choice target suddenly became available, he'd have done exactly the same as we did. It's unfortunate for Jacobs but oh dear, how sad, never mind.

Cook: Amazing Feeling For Bonne
at 19:02:46

Looked like to bad errors by Woolfie which made the game much harder for us than it should have been, but plenty of positives including not getting beat when being behind twice and against a really poor ref who played into Morecambe's hands! Onwards and upwards.

Edmundson Could Be First £1m Signing of New Era
at 08:23:31

Crooks plays in midfield. We have several good midfielders already.

Edmundson is centre back. We are woefully short on quality at centre back.

It's really not that complicated to work out.

Gibbs Joins Norwich as Clubs Agree Compensation
at 13:41:53

Most seem to be ignoring one simple fact - as per the article, we weren't far apart on terms, but decided to stick with what we offered. We could have retained him if we wanted to, but £500k or so is obviously worth more to us than Gibbs based on his demands. It was our decision to let him go.

I couldn't give a flying one who he plays for if it's not ITFC. Onwards and upwards, money in the bank for PC's promotion push.

Ticketing and Stadium Protocols For Home Friendlies
at 21:41:22

Two problems with this:-

1) Being double vaccinated does not stop you from transmitting the virus.

2) Having a negative lft result only proves you've filled in an online form, not that you've actually taken the test (or taken it correctly).

The only effective way to ensure anything has a reasonable chance of being covid-free, is to make everyone take a pcr which is administered by a professional.
