Good to see the ladies taking Sunday out on Nodge. 4-0 so far
at 21:26 19 Feb 2020

Would be amazing if they can end up with a positive goals aggregate by the end of this week.

Trains from Liverpool Street to Ipswich
at 15:26 19 Feb 2020

A little trick which might help - split the journey. So buy a ticket/return to Manningtree and then another ticket/return from Manningtree to Ipswich. You can buy these in advance from a London station, or using the Trainline app. You don't have to get of the train, just retain both tickets.

Generally, to get a train from zone 4 (or Stratford in London) to Ipswich this way comes in at around £21/22.

I can't see it. I think Woolfie will go. Would love to believe he won't, but he's looked our best player at times. Not without the odd error, but just such high quality...

I can't see Toto coming back either. He got such stick from some of our fans, I don't hink he'll want to. The only basis on which he might be here is if he's not willing to take a wage cut to go somewhere else - and we're not willing to settle.

You've said a few times on the pod, I think, that we are oddly under-resourced at CB given we usually play three of them. I do agree, although with Skuse able to drop in and Earl with us to replace Toto, it hasn't worried me this season too much.

But with Woolife *possibly* going, *Earl* not being here and Chambers/Skuse both aging, we really are likely to be very short next season. All the more reason why we should have brought in a permanent CB in January.

We needed to go up this season because we would have otherwise needed to sign centre halves? Blimey?

Fact is, not getting promoted at the first attempt was always possible, maybe even likely. The majority of relatively big clubs which have a Championship and above structure don't go up first time. Anyone who assumed we were going up hasn't been looking closely enough.

The key is to have two plans, one for going up, one for not going up. The problem (it seems to me) is that too many of our fans never considered the possibility that we *wouldn't* get promoted, hence the current panic from some.

Personally, I think not going up is the most likely outcome of this season now, and its clear we have a plan - LON / PL have effectively said that going up has never been guaranteed.

So what will happen in that eventuality? FWIW, I reckon we'll sell 2-3 of our younger players (Flynn, Woolfie and KVY), this should bring £8-10m into the club which will cover off our reduction in income.

Chambers and Skuse will be getting too old, so we'll need to replace them too. And I wouldn't be surprised if we let two (or all) of Huws, Keane and/or Judge go too, to reduce our wage bill. Toto will obviously go too.

So, it'll be a big rebuild job in the summer, we'll look to accelerate the introduction of the likes of El Mizouni, Dobra, McGavin, bring Nydam, Morris, Folami and hopefully Dozzell back into the fold and grow from there. With the right signings (hairy-asred CMF, 2-3 CBs and a striker for a start), we'll be competitive next season and take it from there.

See, that's substance.

More incisive analysis and substance there. Thanks.

The big issue next season is likely to be centre halves, so you'd hope PL is looking to resolve that with at least one captain contender.

If we don't go up, Woolfie may go, Chambers will be another year older, Earl will go back. We'll be left with WIlson as our only centre half of reasonable age - and even he will be 31 later this month. We may need to sign as many as 3/4 centre halves, given how fond we are of 3 at the back.

"Offer substance"

Very little in the way of substance from you on this thread...

In all seriousness, when you see your posts laid out as below, don't you feel a bit embarrassed? It really is quite pathetic.



"Did PRP say anything at all to make you think that he has any sort of plan in place to make us a better football team. A vision, a strategy, any sort of clue whatsoever about what he is doing? Or did he just come across as a bloke good at saying the right things to get by?"
"PJH is properly getting the hang of this TWTD malarkey. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?"
"Who would have ever thought that PRP would give to an event like this and play to the room while keeping everything off field stuff? It is such a cheap option to sit there and say things need to be done better and more spent but he took us to league 1 and can't get us back up, this has cost us millions"
"I don't live in Ipswich or London"
"I suppose the people that would go to that sort of thing to see him probably don't really care about the football side."
"Are you really questioning me not doing a 7 hour round trip for an utterly pointless event?"
"Never been wrong sweetie x"
"Neither will be here next season. PRP has destroyed that dream"
"Do you need a tissue?"
"What has any of that got to do with Woolf and Flyyn leaving in the summer due to PRP relegating us and failing to take us back up?"
"Ooooooooh calm down Paul"
"TWTD"
"Rather be a numbskull than a c*** innit"
"He must be as daft as you then. Literally what I do on here is offer substance, i call out the things that are good enough and the things that aren't. It why the petals like you get soooooo upset by me."
"Wonderful. I'm still right though"

That's fair enough. But...

Its a bit rich to criticise people who go along and claim they don't ask testing questions when you can't be bothered to get off your backside and go along and ask questions. Sitting behind a keyboard and whining is the easiest thing to do. It's all a bit pathetic tbh.

Further evidence that the ability to broadcast via the internet / social media doesn’t mean that you hVe anything worthwhile to say.

The amount of garbage, aggressive baiting and general abuse on Twitter today is a clear sign that nothing is going to change, despite the hounding to death of a women in the prime of her life yesterday. When will we learn, I wonder.

Budgies have sold 9,000 tickets for their cup game at Spurs
at 18:19 14 Feb 2020

Unless they lay on extra trains, they are all going to be screwed getting home. Even worse if the game goes to extra time or pens. They won’t get the last train.

But I’m certain they ail have thought that through...

Evans has just found his Lambert replacement...
at 11:26 13 Feb 2020

He was one of the people I would have gone for after Hurst, but he seems to be a manager who either fits in, or doesn't.

I was talking to a Posh fan yesterday and its remarkable how Darren Ferguson could be on the way to his fourth promotion with them, in three spells - yet has failed everywhere else he has been. Chemistry is critical with a manager, the working relationship between chairman, head of football/academy and manager etc - clearly Darrah McAnthony, Barry Fry and Ferguson somehow have it.

Only time till tell with Evans, O'Neill and Lambert. Personally, I don't think all hope is lost yet. But we'll get an idea in the next 12-18 months I suspect.

Who's going tonight then?
at 12:58 11 Feb 2020

Yup, me too - and my 9th match this year and 7th different ground. I've been there once before though - to see Kingstonian play Plymouth in the FA Cup 25 years ago.

I hadn't clicked that this is our only London match of this season. It's also probably the smallest ground many of our fans will have seen Town play a match at - at 4,850 capacity, it's smaller even than Fleetwood or Accrington Stanley. It's definitely my smallest ground for a competitive match - I've seen us at places like Halstead Town, Sudbury Town, Braintree and Leiston, but all pre-season friendlies.

What does Lee O’Neill bring to the party exactly?
at 20:20 9 Feb 2020

To be fair, a company of the size of ITFC needs to have someone running it day to day. The guy bleeds blue and white, knows the football side of the business well, is an important link between Evans and the rest of the club.

I bought a pair of these a few months ago and they are fantastic. Highly recommended. Great sound, and incredibly quick to connect to whichever device you want. They are superb.
