|Were we ever this bad under Lambert?|
at 20:29 20 Apr 2021
We got well-beaten by Doncaster, Hull, Portsmouth etc this season, but we're going on a run against the worst teams in the division, and struggling to create any kind of chance (bit better re chances tonight).
Baffling selections, players don't look motivated, manager repeatedly just blaming the players. Doesn't look great to me.
|Observations on Bristol City Transfer policy|
at 09:22 14 Apr 2021
Looking at the Bristol City squad, there are quite a few low ambition signings in recent years that don't really point to the man Ashton being such a whizz in the transfer market.
In the last few years they've brought in Henri Lansbury, Chris Martin, Tommy Rowe, Danny Simpson, Nakhi Wells, Adrian Mariappa, Marley Watkins who are all 30 or over now and are at a stage of their career where low-midtable Championship is about their level, or lower.
Andreas Weimann is presumably on a big wage and was signed for a big fee that they aren't going to get anywhere near to recouping, and he hasn't pulled up any trees.
Can't really see any exciting signings other than a 19 year old Frenchman from Monaco, and a couple of young players picked up from Chelsea.
Not intended to be negative, and I do still think we need a fair bit of leadership and know-how alongside our youngsters (who I still think are pretty talented at this level). Someone like Lansbury might be a good shout for us, assuming he's done in the Championship.

|2 minute silence??|
at 15:00 10 Apr 2021
Did I hear that right?
Edit: Yes I did - I wonder what the players will think about in the second minute that they didn't have time to think about in the first?

----Norwood (Drinan 45)--- Hawkins
Edit: Thought I was replying to the other thread about the line-up. To be honest this doesn't deserve to have it's own thread.

|The question is|
at 13:30 7 Apr 2021
Will it be a 'promotion at all costs' strategy, where we try and just sign the best players that'll be willing to come to ITFC, and basically it's sh*t or bust a la the start of the Evans era, or will it be a cannier approach where we have a sophisticated recruitment strategy, only sign players 23 and under, do more scouting from the European Leagues etc., and accept that it won't give us immediate returns.

We're definitely going to lose 0-1 on Saturday with Charlie Brown getting the winner.
|17 National League clubs fined by the FA|
at 09:19 27 Mar 2021
For failing to fulfil fixtures because they don't have any money to put on games due to losing all income sue to the pandemic.
And then also, the FA is investing 180m in grassroots football - 'the 'Survive, Revive, Thrive' strategy aims to help the game recover from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.'
|3 teams in League 1 with less goals than ITFC this season|
at 19:19 26 Mar 2021
And we're worried that playing 2 strikers might change the 'ethos of the team'.
The 'ethos of the team' at the moment is that we're relying on Parrott, Judge and Edwards to open teams up, with Dozzell and Bishop as the defensive shield...
|Great play by Dozzell|
at 19:26 23 Feb 2021
Pretty awful by Parrott. Bennetts also looks rubbish to me. But on the bright side, the Ipswich players are all playing really well.
Another bit of poor play from Bennetts.
We'd be much stronger with Jackson and Edwards in instead of the loan players.

|My guess for today is this:|
at 12:21 20 Feb 2021
Mathieson - Chambers - Wilson - Kenlock
Judge - Ward - Harrop
Bennetts - Norwood - Dobra
|The forum looks very messy at the moment|
at 20:31 18 Feb 2021
URLs posted straight into thread titles, meaningless acronyms, too many emojis, distinct lack of Corbyn / Vegan / BLM / Covid threads, and can't see any mentions of Mich D'Avray or Mark Fish anywhere.
Not to mention all the 'What if we just popped Sir Alf's statue into the dugout' type ideas.
