EADT any positives?
at 05:40 8 Jun 2017

Any chance of positive ITFC news? We do not want to hear of players going to Norwich and Cardiff. Who are we in for? Have our reporters the same knowledge as us? A very negative press.
Use a smaller quality squad?
at 03:03 4 Jun 2017

Please Mick, demand money from ME for a quality striker and quality midfield playmaker, the rest of the squad is ok.
No more stop gap, might me ok or injury prone players, have a smaller squad and let the Academy earn their corn by creating players worthy of a first team place.
In Cup games use the same players, stop these wholesale changes that have made YOU and US a laughing stock, especially in TV games.
What chance do we have to compete?
at 01:29 23 May 2017

We moan about the lack of money that MM has been given by ME.
We/me moan about the standard of our football and the players that MM can attract.
Then you look at the amount of money given to the relegated teams from the Premiership, about £100 million each for being a failure.
Level playing field in The Championship, no chance due to Murdoch and Co, ME can't muster a few million to enhance the team, just enough to keep the Club ticking over.
So what's the answer?
Perhaps we need to support OUR Club, a bit like the Portsmouth fans support theirs, ME to get MM to put his money into a top striker and top midfielder, and the best Academy coaches, and start to let the youngsters come through, and be given the chance to play.
Any real news about ITFC?
at 06:09 21 May 2017

Have we any real news about ITFC? Have we any REAL reporters demanding news? We have the EADT doing a two page spread about what we all already knew.
We know what supporters want, not the greatest, but some football fair to entertain.
With the right players bought, a real centre forward, a real central playmaker, the rest of the squad would be fine. Just be prepared to pay a few million to buy our missing links.
Barton Albion and Newcastle United we must win!
at 02:38 11 May 2017

MM rightly states that we could have been in the same position as Notts Forest if we had not won games against Barton and Newcastle...then having achieved that, and at last getting a momentum, why did he have to send out a scratch team in a dead rubber against already relegated Rotherham? when we could have finished a dour season with a flourish?
Pre-season yawn?
at 04:28 10 May 2017

Time for a real shake up. A different location for the squad during pre season, a totally different set of pre season friendlies, and a prestigious home friendly against quality opposition, that would at least get a little bit of a buzz about the place.
The Manager is getting lazy, the squad and supporters bored, even before a new season has started. Oh how we need some upward impetus. - See more at:

Drogheda Date Set 8th May 2017 22:58

Could have been a bore draw today.
at 04:16 30 Apr 2017

Neither keeper would have needed a shower today in a game of no real goalmouth action, or real passion.
Sheffield always on the front foot with much to gain, Ipswich players coming back together again after being unwisely rested at Rotherham in the previous game.
Yet another loss at home, Fortress Portman Road in tatters, supporters in tears as to whether to renew, does ME really care?
We have needed good money to be spent on just two players, an out and out striker like Murphy was, and most of all a midfield creator that is strong enough to avoid injuries and really drive the team. The rest is down to MM, TC etc to earn their corn by using tactics and selecting a team to win, or perhaps at least entertaining the paying public, formerly known as fans.
MM and the Rotherham defeat.
at 04:11 25 Apr 2017

Will this man never learn?
He picks an attacking team that gets good results during the Easter period, staves off a relegation fight and then changes the whole team against Rotherham.
When you have finally got a winning team, surely you stick with it, barring injuries.
Never change it, neither league or cup game, injuries will come but one or two players can be replaced.
We saw our best chance of The Premiership go down the drain a couple of seasons ago when a reserve team was played at Old Trafford, to protect a so called first team that was pushing for an automatic promotion place. We all know were that ended.
9 changes made? What's the gain?
at 01:29 23 Apr 2017

Yes I know it was a dead rubber, but 9 changes made to a team that had only just secured back to back wins in a very poor season?
This is Mick going back to selecting the sort of team that were woeful in cup competitions. Surely just keeping the side that saw us stave off a relegation fight with a great Easter, perhaps with Rowe coming in for Lawrence was the best bet?
At last an exciting team, going on the front foot giving those supporters something to cheer.
Any supporter that has the chance to watch U23 games can see that Bishop is not what he was two years ago, Dozzell, although skillful is lightweight and needs to bulk up to his fathers statue, and Dave makes Skuse look top class, that was our midfield today.
Let's just hope that those players rested today (if selected), give us wins in our last two games, as fans we deserve it.
Keep the same team and formation for our last three games.
at 04:49 22 Apr 2017

Two key results at Easter in an uninspiring, injury hit season has at last put a smile back on supporters faces, please don't spoil it by making wholesale changes against Rotherham.
Rowe for Lawrence, yes, but leave rest alone.
Have a subs bench of Samuel, Smith, Gerkin, Emmanuel, Pittman, Bishop, Williams.
Please don't pick a mish mash of players that have no idea of how each other plays, like in the Cup games, and then are totally hopeless in following League games.
Our last home game of the season
at 04:29 19 Apr 2017

Why not a sudden promo game against Sheffield Wednesday?
Our last home game of the season, the same promo as the Newcastle game.
With so many Season ticket holders not renewing, let's go out with a bang, give the team our best shot with a great crowd, let ME know what it is really like to have a 12th man, and MM to pick a team to win, not bore the pants of us.
