|Marcus Evans on the Rotation Policy|
at 12:49 10 Jan 2020
“Much has been said of our rotation policy and I want to address this point. A key part of our strategy is to develop 22 players all challenging for every position on the pitch – no comfort zones".
We do not have 22 players challenging for every position, we have / will have 22 players capable of covering every position. There is a huge difference.
I believe that the / some players are, consciously or sub-consciously, underperforming on the basis that they know very well they are likely play in the next game, irrespective.
If they were genuinely competing for a place would we see an improvement in performances and results?
|If you could rewrite the Premier League.....|
at 15:42 10 May 2019
When Premier League games are shown TV, live or highlights, there are many matches which, for me at least, have little potential glamour / interest due to the teams involved. (I could usually stop watching and make a cuppa about two thirds of the way through MOTD).
I got to thinking about what my ‘perfect’ Premier League would look like. A league where the likelihood of a boring game would be significantly reduced.
So, and not based on any particular criteria, science, logic, current form or rationale (before anyone tries to rip the thing apart with common sense or intelligent argument), I constructed my Premier League wish list….
1. Manchester City
2. Manchester United
10. Budgies (purely for the derby games)
11. Dirty Leeds
12. Aston Villa
13. Nottingham Forest
15. West Ham
18. West Brom
19. Millwall (purely for match days)
20. Sheffield Wednesday
Just teams that I enjoy, or used to enjoy watching back in the day, with a few decent derby games thrown in. I remain a little uncertain of a few – particularly 16 to 20.
How would yours look?

When he first arrived, I thought that PH had a clearly defined vision in terms what he wanted to achive and exactly how he would achieve it.
Rightly or wrongly, I am starting to think that he has lost a little faith - not just in a few players but perhaps in himself to a degree too.
If there is any truth in this perception, and that's all it is, hopefully it's merely a very short term loss of confidence.

Surely another indication that the game could be played at 3pm on a Saturday.....

Potentially, surely this coming season is set to provide us with the largest number of threats from former Town players coming back to 'haunt' us?

.......am I right in thinking that you are obliged to sing "It's coming 'ome" in a Cockney barrow boy accent - wherever you might live / be in the UK?
Wouldn't want to embarrass myself by getting it wrong later.
|Mick Inners, Mick Outers and then?|
at 18:30 31 Mar 2018
It would be great to think that, eventually, the point scoring, posturing, baiting and hurling of insults between the inners and the outers might subside and we could actually have a (relatively) united bunch of fans on here.
So far, little sign of that though. Shame really.

Unlike most it seems, I really can't remember when I went to watch my first Town game.
However, I do have a recollection which no-one I have told believes.
I remember sitting on the grass beside the goal for a few matches - actually leaning on the post for one game. This, I assume, was when the North Stand was full (?). Not sure exactly when, but early seventies I would guess.
Can anyone else on here, likely over 50, recall this happening or should I be checking into a home for the confused and deluded??

Ex scum or not, it was a nice touch for him to turn around and (albeit briefly) join in the applause in the 84th minute.

The pre match reviews of opposition supporters and managers usually refer to a "typical MM team" - (overly?) physical, well organised and hard to beat.
Where did that go then?

(and let's assume he just happened to be your first choice), would you still support him if he agreed with MM that Skuse and Douglas were the team's best midfield options?

I do not claim to be a footballing expert. I do not have any insider knowledge and have not heard any rumours. I do not know the answers to resolving the issues surrounding our club or reuniting its supporters.
I don't know if one thing or everything needs changing and of course I am in no position to have any influence on any change anyway. I am therefore relying on others to be able to make the right decisions at some point and get us back on track.
However, what I do know is this. I used to look forward to a new season and every match like a five year old looks forward to Christmas. I loved the atmosphere, the noise, the excitement and all the ups and downs that supporting a club provides.
That has gone. Now, I find myself feeling varying degrees of apathy and even disinterest from time to time. I have thought long and hard about why and, rightly or wrongly, the only answer I can come up with is this.... there is a distinct lack of hope. If I had hope (even if long term) then I am certain that supporting ITFC would bring more joy than it does at present.
Unfortunately, I am currently unable to see any light at the end of the tunnel, other than a man with a torch bringing me more bad news.
