I know this won't be the first thread on this.. but I'm feeling, despite the exciting prospect of on-field improvements, a little bit uneasy about the thought of a takeover.

Whilst I acknowledge the fact that Evans has got so much wrong in his tenure as our owner, I genuinely believe he does have the best interests of Ipswich Town at heart and I don't worry for our future (at least financially!) whilst the club is in his hands.

What concerns me most is that if he sells to a consortium looking to make "quick money" a couple of years down the line, whether they would be so thorough and careful about who they would sell the club on to (of course, none of us know).

I guess it's a classic ITFC case of "Careful what you wish for"... based on the malaise of the past 14 years, can we dare to dream? We're certainly due a change of fortunes

I imagine something like this has occurred in the board room today (or at least for the previous appointments):

The Cowleys
at 17:58 25 Jan 2021

Whilst respecting the superb job they did at Lincoln, I've never really been a fan of the Cowleys in terms of their style of football and also, to an extent, their personality. I'd argue they probably wouldn't have got Lincoln to where Michael Appleton has so quickly, though of course, we'll never know.

However, it was when watching Danny Cowley providing punditry on a Birmingham game and claiming "Yeah Jutkiewicz probably wanted that 'eader on the other side. We say footballers are right or left footed and I think he's the same with 'eaders" that really turned me off. Certainly wouldn't be my choice of next Ipswich manager!

When hearing Mick would shortly be announced as Cardiff's manager, one of my first thoughts was "wonder if he'll come back for any players"...

Apart from the fact there's almost nobody left from his time here, I can't think of anyone from our current squad that Cardiff would be interested in

Just spoke to a Charlton supporting colleague who tells me they have 0 fit centre backs. They played with Chris Gunter and Darren Pratley there on Tuesday and are expected to have the same pairing tomorrow.

That, combined with our lack of midfield options, could make an "interesting" game...

What do we think for tonight?

Personally, although I'd be frustrated whilst watching, I'd probably be more than happy to come away with a bad performance and a point in the bag - especially considering the players available for this one and the lengthy travel etc.

Can't see us getting a win, but would be a real statement of intent if we were to pick up 3 points

For all the rubbish that's been said on here in the past week about a very able deputy we have at LB who, by the way, is one of our own he's barely put at foot wrong in that first half. Great to see him prove the doubters wrong

Even more impressive considering he's completely nullified Blackpools star man of the season in CJ Hamilton

Harry Wright
at 14:14 22 Sep 2020

Just checked and Harry Wright is yet to make an appearance for GAIS. I wonder if he was signed for them as a back up keeper, as he's been on the bench for all their games since joining?

A good life experience nonetheless, though one may have hoped he may get some first team football (not to say he still won't)

Pros = no Brenner
Cons = strong Bristol accent and the promise of updates on the Weston-super-mare game...

Think I’d prefer Brenner
No spark

Real lack of creativity tonight... but then we played with 5 centre backs (Donacien included in that, according to Lamberts assessment) and 3 central midfielders.

What did we expect?
The Last Decade
at 14:03 24 Dec 2019

Well, just two more games to go in this decade. Whilst I may not have as many years as an ITFC fan under my belt as others on here, I certainly can't think of a worse decade to be a Town fan that last?

Still wouldn't change it for the world, COYB

Grant Ward
at 16:36 18 Dec 2019

I know this has been discussed already, but I can't think of any good reason why we wouldn't sign him. Apart from the fact he's good cover at right back, another option in CM (not that we need that, in fairness) he's also better than the majority of right sided midfielders we have.

Seems a bit of a no-brainer to sign a good, versatile Championship level player whilst we are in League One.
Not that I am encouraging criminal activities but.....

Perhaps if someone spray painted "F*ck Off Evans" on the areas requiring a new lick of paint, the club (Evans) may be forced in to action....
