Cook Confirms Reid Joining Coaching Team
at 19:47:52

Seems very sensible. The coaches below PC are obviously a little green on the coaching front, so Reid will be a good ear for PC to turn to from time to time. Welcome Peter. I hope you are part of our upcoming success story.

Reid Could Reprise Wigan Role at Town
at 16:00:03

Seems sensible, I think. Experienced head around, when needed. Obviously the current coaching staff do lack a bit of experience on that side of the game. I can’t see he will be so involved that he’ll be dictating the style of football we play (thank heavens!!), but maybe we need a wise old head about the place from time to time.

Fans Offered Chance to Have Name on Beattie Statue Plinth
at 09:20:45

Doesn't strike me as a brilliant idea. The main issue for me is that only quite "well off" fans can afford this. I'd rather find another way of raising the £10k and either not inscribe any additional names (can't help thinking this will detract from the aesthetic of the statue??), or inscribe names of those that helped The Beat - coaches, managers, tea ladies, secretaries, friends, charities etc. Couldn't the club put a voluntary extra £1 on ticket fees for a couple of home matches? I'm sure this would get the fund over the line. Tricky one this and I accept I may be missing the point.

He’d have been creaming himself if he knew I’d signed. Unfortunately I failed a medical, well I say “medical “, I mean I’m absolutely sh1te. Welcome.

U18s Coach Jason Leaves Blues to Watch Son Andre at QPR
at 12:14:14

Good luck to both Dozzels. Who knows, perhaps we will re sign Andre when we are back in the Prem!! And yet another damning indictment of what Evans did to our club : “ From top to bottom it was a bit of a mess. No structure, no nothing, no identity.”

Town Accounts Show Evans Waived or Settled £96m in Loans
at 10:51:02

For anyone drifting towards some rose tinted reassessment of his time here because of this news, I'd refer you again to Alan Lee's podcast interview, which laid bare the completely dysfunctional club that we'd become under Evans. This man was disastrous for ITFC. That debt was largely down to his own criminally poor decisions, admittedly not helped by some bad luck, but you make your own luck......Evans stripped down the club to a completely rudderless husk, plodding aimlessly around in the third tier of English football, all the time pulling the wool over the eyes of the fans. He may be a "decent" person, who knows, he never friggin' spoke, but to say he was incompetent would be charitable. A stain on our history. It genuinely pains me to think what he did to us. I get the "yer, but he gave us some cash" view, but if you donate to the RSPCA, that doesn't excuse you in any way for kicking the cr@p out of your dog every night. And there is no excusing what he did to us. None. So he wrote off £100mill? Tough. His mistakes. Currently the only bad thing about about the takeover is that he still has that 5% stake. I want him out. Gone. For good.

Town Confirm Bonne Loan Signing
at 18:27:56

“I’m a Town fan and as soon as I heard about the opportunity to come back here and play for the first-team, the team that I essentially love, it was a no-brainer. I can’t wait to get going now.” That’ll do for me, lad. Welcome!

Dozzell Deal Done
at 09:52:29

A shame he’s going. Because of the family connection I always wanted this one to work out. Would have been nice for another Dozzell name to have been part of another promotion squad. However, maybe a fresh start is what he needs. From the little I saw of him last season, he seemed very inconsistent and not the high tempo player that PC seems to want. Good luck Andre, hope it works out for you.

Compare this with the Evans era. Makes you realise how far Evans ran the club into the dirt and let us unravel. An incompetent fool with zero idea how to run a football club.

Detmer: O'Leary and Ashton Key to Executing Our Vision For Town

At first glance of the article heading I thought it said Dermot O'Leary!! I think my wife might take some interest in the Town if he was involved! Anyway, all sounds good stuff. Some professionals, with proper knowledge, drive and enthusiasm, rather than Evans with his half @rsed, finger in the air, part time, farcical incompetence.

Downes: We Should Be Winning Games Like This Easily, It's Not Good Enough
at 11:26:31

Most good teams have a good spine. Downes is the only player we have in our spine, the rest are...well.....spineless. He’s obviously a very decent player and speaks well, or at least honestly. I hope we can hang onto him next season, but I fear he may be too good for L1 and therefore too good for us.
