Just logged on to have a little peruse only to see we are losing at the mighty Northampton. Genuinly forgot there was a game on. I really have become apathetic to this bunch of charlatans parading as footballers.
Had a few family around in the garden. Bloody lovely, A couple of bottles of red and a few beers shared. Saw we had managed a 0-0 draw against the mighty MK. Well chilled atm and dinner will be served in a minute, a rather nice leek and potato pie. We're not good enough to go up this season, not going to stress over our current form. Paul Cook will get his team in and sort out the mess. Investment is going to be made available, and next season will be a different ball game. COYFB.
The takeover has happened. My son rung me at 11.10am to tell me the news, it's his 21st birthday today and he said it was as good a present as he could of wished for. Will be opening a very nice bottle of red later this evening that was a moving in gift and raise a glass or 2 to my boy and our clubs new owners. Cheers.
Prices of greyhounds have rocketed in sleepy Suffolk this morning as the takeover of Ipswich Town was announced in the media. Local sales of the timid pet went up tenfold in just a few hours. One local pet supplier, Dane Whippet said “It’s gone barking mad here today”. Popular TWTD poster greyhound was unavailable for comment, but it is believed his definite information prior to the announcement was the key to the incredible interest in the canine sales. Next seasons sponsors are due to be revealed soon, with Winalot the front runner.
For the first time in 52 years of supporting this once revered and respected club, i really can't be arsed at the moment to get emotionally involved with what is going on both on and off the field. I was pleased with the appointment of Paul Cook, thought he may get a tune out of some of the vastly inflated squad he has inherited and that the run in to the end of the season might spark a degree of excitement, but alas, nothing has managed to rouse any interest at all. Not putting any blame on PC, as he obviously has one hell of a rebuilding job on his hands, but the fact i have gone and tended some gardens on Good Friday and today rather than stay in the warm and watch on i-follow with a beer or three speaks volumes. Don't even feel sad either, that feeling left me a while back. I hope Mr Evans and the prospective buyers can come to an agreement and the club can once again get our pulses racing. I live in faint hope.
Being a bit of a pillock where anything remotely technical is concerned, as i no longer live in Pinewood, i would like to at some point change my user name. How do i go about doing this in very simple laymands terms please.
Good afternoon fellow TWTDers. Booking the Glastonbudget festival for August bank holiday and instead of camping, we quite like the idea of hiring a campervan for the duration. Any recommendations on where to hire from and the type of vehicle we can hanker down in. There will just be me and the missus.
I genuienly forgot Town were playing until about half past 4 as i was busy getting the garage extension turned into a chill out zone at our recently moved into gaff. So far, there is a bloody good music system installed, copious amounts of CD,s, DVD,s, a TV , a fridge for the beers and a very comfy swivel chair to sit in while i escape the attention of unwanted family members post lockdown. Apart from the lap dancing pole that may or not be installed in the near future, is there anything i've forgotten about?
My best bud has already booked a weekend for the end of May to come and stay, so imperative all systems go by then.
How good would it be if we were able to be there today. A few pre match beers overlooking the marina, a good mardle with some mates, then down to Portman Road and give fraud Paul Lambert the send off he so thoroughly deserves. Would be music to my ears.
Marcus Evans is understood to be close to naming Viz cartoon character, Roger Mellie as the new manager of Ipswich Town. A source close to the elusive owner, currently in hiding in sunnier climes, said in this mornings Fulchester Gazette "Marcus absolutely pissed himself while reading a sketch in an old copy of Viz and thinks Mellie would be the ideal man to put a smile back around Portman Road". Mr Mellie was unavailable for comment, as was up to his nuts in Millie Tant, but it is understood his coaching staff, Terry Fckwit, Sidney Smutt and Johnny Fartpants would also leave Fulchester Rovers to team up with him. Long standing Fulchester goalkeeper, Billy the Fish tweeted " Would be a massive improvement on Paul Lambert and we will be sorry to see Roger leave".
