Town’s Greatest Scots?
at 10:16 30 Nov 2021

Berra was not our best ever Scot but he deserves the mention; I saw him at Wembley in 2016 against England.
He was naturally left footed as was Tommy Smith and both leaving, left the club woefully short of left sided centre backs. Far too often right sided players had to play on the left costing us on many occasions.

Towns greatest Welshmen?
at 10:04 30 Nov 2021

Billy Reed was the first I believe, but folk always seem to forget Lewis Price. He had a long career with many clubs (often on the bench), but did amass 11 Welsh caps I believe. He is still in the game today .

The Highgate Blue Poll
at 13:10 25 Nov 2021

To make a statement as bold as that assumes that all non TWTD reading fans think the same. How could he possibly know. There are eight of us regular supporters who travel home and away. There are only two who read or and post on the forum. The other six have 290 years of support between them.
TWTD does not necessarily represent the views of the majority of Town fans - it just thinks it does. Thousands of fans would never read the forum. Also of course several that do for all the best or worst reasons rarely get to Portman Road.
It's the same with politics - the majority views on here are not the views of the majority of town supporters believe me.

Covid capitalism under the Conservatives

If you spend as much time on social media as a lot of you folk, you are bound to have a different view of what goes on.
In our real world if there was a general election tomorrow it is perfectly understandable why a third of people would still vote for 'them'.
Hopefully (and yes believe what you wish), this will change over the next couple of years. To win voters back though, there needs to be more respect for why they left, less criticism of the opponents with more time spent on policies and objectives and finally of course bringing all factions of the party together.
Lecture, abuse, criticise us who deserted labour all you like, it will not wash with voters until the above criteria is met.

U.S. inflation 6.2%

There was I thinking that shortage of goods and or inflation was only happening in the UK, with Brexit being to blame!

I quite like the idea of still being in two cup competitions in mid November. What's not to like. As at this moment in time we can go to Wembley four times this season, how refreshing is that!

Ashton: Playford Road Protocols to Remain in Place Over Winter
at 12:11 9 Nov 2021

How very articulate and it explains in detail why we should all be aware that the next few months are vital to us all; players, staff and supporters of ITFC.
Get vaccinated, get your booster, observe the protocols and get through this together.
What a change it makes to have a board who listen to supporters and more importantly explain what is going on and why.

You're right on one point....
at 15:45 8 Nov 2021

The BBC business piece that you quote is a forecast by Richard Hughes of the OBR and does not reflect what is happening now. May I suggest you investigate his forecast made 12 months ago and compare it with reality today. He was a few billion on the pessimistic side.
Statistics of course can almost tell you whatever you want to read into them, but those who quote that Brexit will be a financial disaster might just be wrong of course.
Our economy as of now is performing better than expected.

"Remembrance Period"
at 14:19 8 Nov 2021

Thank Major for your excellent post. It exemplifies my thoughts in every way. I remember the Michael Foot (his brother of course was Dingle MP, for Ipswich) incident and yes he was unfairly pilloried in the media for what he was wearing.

Very good point, well made. I purchased seven this morning and could only get the area you mention.
I have complained to ITFC about it.
By the way; the last time I went there we lost 6 - 1! - it was a friendly.

Does Sam Morsey miss the Oxford game because of the amount of yellow
at 12:24 8 Nov 2021

I believe this is the state of play regarding yellow cards;

The current rules this season stipulate that any player accumulating a certain number of yellow cards will face disciplinary action in the form of match bans. It works on the following principles:

Five yellows accumulated before match week 19 results in a one-match ban.
Ten yellows accumulated by week 32 will result in a two-match ban.
Fifteen yellows by week 38 means a three-match ban.
Twenty yellows in a season can result in the Regulatory Commission punishing the player in a manner that they deem to be most fitting.
Generally, the suspensions laid out above refer to league matches only, not tournaments.

49,000 odd cases today

In my area all is going according to plan with the 'Booster'; had mine today.
Remember you have to wait 6 months after the 2nd vaccination. Mine was 6 months and eleven days. As for the anti vaxxers, please do not keep posting their rhetoric and movements. Why publish their videos etc? You are just giving them the publicity they crave.

TEAM: GK change. CB change.

You only need to look at the league table to see our problem! Our two centre halves and goalkeeper need to act as a unit and have better communication than of late, regardless who plays.
What a tonic a good defensive display would be....

Homophobia and banning
at 17:51 18 Oct 2021

Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could all act with a lot more dignity and respect following on from the statements given today by Chris Bryant and the family of Sir David Amess. The former calling for us to be kinder to one another and the latter expressing wishes that we can set aside differences and show kindness and love to all.

Germany currently has a very large supply issue and their department stores are struggling to fulfil orders. 74% of German retailers have logistic issues. Their inflation is now above 4% the highest for 28 years and energy costs have risen by 14% with heating oil going up 76%. They also have a lorry driver shortage of over 60,000.
So you see statistics can tell you whatever it is you want to hear.
