|Let’s hope he’s our Brian Clough...|

Did good things for a bitter rival but once he’d moved up the road, created history and a legend.
Come on Paul, there’s the story of a lifetime to be made here.
|I was given this today - ITFC Quiz|

A colleague’s having a clear out and found this- still in its cellophane. Does anyone have/ remember it? Dated 2005 with an unbelievable £19.99 sticker price.
|A little perspective surely?|

Imagine if we’d sold Dids for the £8m reputedly offered by Leicester and replaced him with a £200k Waghorn. People would have gone nuts but it may have been a great move. The price tag can be irrelevant. Have we forgotten Bart has signed - he hasn’t done that to go back to the third division.
|Hello to Hans, the ITFC fan I met on the train to Monchengladbach on Saturday|

Lovely fella, he’s supported Town since 1979, was wearing a Bobby Robson Foundation wristband and made a very good case for a link up with Borussia Monchengladbach fans as well as Fortuna. Also a small town, nicknamed the foals and with a Crayzee lookalike for a mascot, he has a point!
We had a brilliant weekend in Düsseldorf and Monchengladbach and I would have no objection to spending more time at both.
|Fortuna people - any advice?|
at 09:00 28 Apr 2018
Heading across to Dusseldof next weekend with my sons U14 team for a couple of days. In addition to a match for the lads on the Sunday morning, we’re taking in Borussia Munchengladbach on the Saturday and Fortuna’s promotion push on the Sunday.
I obviously have a particular interest in the latter. Is it worth wearing a Town top? I’m the only Ipswich fan in the group. Do any of those who have been across have any tips, thoughts or ‘dont’s’?

so, as a number have said, perhaps Mick got his tactics correct and we got a deserved away win.
What I can't understand is why defenders in particular often have a team mate standing in front or to the side of them with no opponent within 10 metres. Instead of passing them the ball, they kick it over their heads and frequently to an opponent. Is it tactics, fear of making a mistake or both?
The rationale defeats me and is probably the root of my frustration with Mick and his team.
|Just been to see ‘The Workers Cup’ tonight|
at 23:33 27 Feb 2018
Not on mainstream release and only a few showings, mostly in London before it moves on to the USA and boldly, the Middle East. Chronicles a group of migrant workers in Qatar as they bid to win a football trophy that momentarily lifts them out of the inescapable life they are living building the 2022 Wold Cup infrastructure. If you give a flying toss about football, human rights and the way our game is going, I urge you to see it if you can.
Stirring, poignant and yet also reinforces why we love this game.
