|Tromsø Travel Tips|
at 22:14 16 Jun 2019
Off to Tromsø next weekend to take part in the Midnight Sun running festival (I’m doing the 10km slowly... like a 2 stone overweight 42 year old should do.)
Aside from the beer being eye wateringly expensive and taking a jumper and sleeping mask has anyone been and have any tips?

I don’t do “def info” but I reckon it’s a done deal:
1. Local football reporter in Stroud (nearest town to Forest Green) has just told me the deal is 99.9% done (Norwood is ex-FGR)
2. Check out Norwood’s Twitter. He’s just posted a Tweet clearly signposting he’s off....
On previous basis (Charlie Austin?) until he’s “holding up the scarf” I remain sceptical but....
Great signing. He’s got great movement, good finisher and is an absolute pain in the @rse to play against.
|Bull at Bacton|
at 20:05 5 May 2019
Posted here a while ago looking for recommendations to impress the wife on a return trip to the Motherland.
However recommended The Bull at Bacton thanks. A pint of Adnams Broadside for me and a Suffolk gin for Mrs Wickwar. Splendid!
|What’s your earliest TWTD memory?|
at 19:40 14 Apr 2019
(Apparently we’ve been relegated to League 1 but, a bit like Brexit, I’m try to ignore it in the hope it all gets reversed somehow)
What’s your earliest TWTD memory?
I wrote to the paper fanzine in about 1994 extolling the virtues of Steve Sedgley. We paid £1m for him 25 years ago which illustrates how little our purchasing power has improved!
|Adnams Broadside - thoughts|
at 20:29 15 Mar 2019
Been looking forward to a pint all week. Bit too much. Too malty. Think my tastebuds must be playing up.
Usually a nice pint. Maybe my tastebuds are kaput.
|What lies in wait in L1|
at 22:30 13 Mar 2019
Having watched the game last night and read comments on here there’s a sense of optimism about how we might go in L1. The idea that with some key additions our crop of kids can lead the recovery.
Due to living in Gloucestershire I go and see Forest Green a lot. A few weeks ago I watched them play Lincoln who are currently top of L2. Forest Green are an incredibly young side who played some nice stuff. They got beaten up by Lincoln. Matt Rhead and John Akinde beat the crap out of them. The Cowleys (who were advocated on here by some as a MM replacements) favour tactics reminiscent of John Beck’s Cambridge in the early 90s.
I’m not saying we should be fearful but some physicality may be needed to tackle what lies in wait next season.
|Suffolk pub advice for an exile|
at 18:57 10 Mar 2019
Planning a trip with Mrs Wickwar and the Junior Wickwars to visit the Suffolk based relatives in early May. If negotiations go well I may be able to sneak a trip to Portman Rd..... we’ve hired an Airbnb in Hunston (between Bury & Stowmarket). It’s not a part of Suffolk I know well (I’m a Sudbury lad originally) but I’m keen to show off the “mother county” in its best light.
Can anyone recommend a nearby pub? I like old, country, beams etc.... I’ve read about the Buxhall Crown - any good? Must have a good pint too. Thanks in advance all!
|Going to Wales vs England tomorrow|
at 22:01 22 Feb 2019
11am train. Arrive in Cardiff at noon. 4 hours of “sampling the atmosphere” before heading into the cauldron.
Can’t wait. Anyone else been? Meant to be a hell of an atmosphere. Any bar tips?
|Buy out Evans - the solution |
at 22:27 4 Dec 2018
Almost certainly cloud cuckoo land stuff but if 50,000 individuals were willing to pay £1,800 we’d raise £90m.... would Evans cut his losses at £50m leaving the remainder to fund ongoing trading losses and a modest investment in playing staff?
I’m in - I’ve just got a new credit card.....
|Webster & McGoldrick|
at 22:03 30 Oct 2018
Someone else today posted about David McGoldrick's ability to put a string of games together now that's he has left Portman Road.
In a similar vein my Bristol City supporting friends down here in the West Country are gleefully rubbing how good Adam Webster is in my face.
I keep pointing out that, when they signed him, I did say "he is an excellent player IF you can keep him fit."
I don't understand why these players suddenly stop getting injured when they leave Ipswich.... admittedly it is only two. On a brighter note was that Emyr I saw training in the pictures today.... it'll be Adeyemi next!
Up the Town.
|I am going to lots of down votes but....|
at 07:33 28 Oct 2018
First Town game for about 5 years yesterday. Whilst the stuff on the pitch was as horrendous as I’d feared I was more shocked by what I heard in the stands.
Why were a large number of our support incapable of constructing a sentence without littering it with f words and c bombs?
A chap sat behind me, after giving a lengthy diagnosis of our shortcomings finished off with “and they’re all f*****g c”
Maybe I have grown used to the more genteel surroundings of my local team Forest Green but it did take me by surprise. You wouldn’t take a kid with you to hear that.
Anyway - up the Town
at 18:23 25 Oct 2018
Can anyone detail anything specific re CD? I keep reading rumours and references but I haven’t seen anything specific.....
Does anyone actually know anything?
|I have given ITFC money direct for the first time in 11 years!|
at 23:02 18 Oct 2018
Been to a few Town games over the past decade but found it increasingly hard since moving to the West Country.
The games that I’ve attended have seen me get tickets through mates. This week I purchased two tickets from the club direct and realised I needed a Customer Number. The Club Shop informed me I hadn’t bought anything since the Preston game in Dec 2007!
Naturally the game I’m going to is Millwall.... me and a mate are heading to London for a “cultural” (boozy) weekend and Millwall felt like the natural choice!
|Been nice knowing you all..... running a marathon on Sunday|
at 20:30 5 Oct 2018
Long time observer, occasional poster. Town fan since 1985.
I'm running the Bournemouth Marathon on Sunday. Done lots of running, including about 5 half marathons over the past four months but the longest run I have managed is 15.
Think I will be ok to about 18 but then anything could happen......
So much conflicting advice out there ranging from potential death to could be potentially surprised.
Any tips/experience appreciated!
|ITFC Retro shirts - bit flipping snug!|
at 10:48 13 Jul 2018
Anyone else bought a ITFC Retro shirt from the Club site?
I went for the 1981 kit in a large. I’m a (lapsing into lonely hearts ad description) a “well upholstered 41 year old” but wouldn’t describe myself as a fatboy just that I like a few beers.
Whilst the shirt technically fits and Mrs Wickwar says “You look good in something that is fitted” I’m slightly scared that 5 pints of beer and I may burst forth.
Anyone else think these shirts are ludicrously fitted or am I actually a roly poly? Nice kit though!
