ITFC Shirt Collectors
at 10:40 20 Sep 2019

There is a beauty on eBay at the moment, just pushing £200 and too rich for me - not one I've seen anywhere before.

I think I've got every shirt dating back to the 92-93 season bar 5 one-off 3rd kits - one worn somewhere around 1998 , one worn in 2000-01, one in 2001/02, one in 2002/03 and one in 2009/10.

Plus a couple of older ones I've picked up - does anyone else collect and what does your collection look like? I want to try and get the rest of the 91/92 ones and then think that will do me as that is the year I started supporting the Town

Doesn't look like the answer at left back for me - - can't/doesn't compete at all in the air and doesn't have that quick enough first step to stop people getting past him.

Positionally was ok, but looked a downgrade on Kenlock to me.

Pretty good list this compiled by the Guardian, hard to argue with the general placings of everything even if there are some high ones I don't like (Game of Thrones....) and some lower I do think they've done well on what is a very subjective topic.

Makes me want to binge The Wire again, and The Sopranos, and Breaking Bad.....

Lots of threads about him over weekend, and he didn't have his best game - by a long way - but interesting stat from Statman on Blue Monday podcast.....

Ever present part of a defence that has conceded 4 goals in 7 games, best defensive start to the season since the mid 80s
That game is the sort of game you fear when you see 442 without 2 wingers

Just never had control of it in the middle of the park, were comprehensively outplayed in that regard - still created a bit but only due to little flashes of quality because it was a real long ball style.

The problems seemed obvious, but yet when we made changes we didn't address them which is concerning.

Yet we could have nicked it at the end, and league table is looking good.

Be interested to see how we play on Tuesday, as think we will be crying out for that 3rd man in the midfield against a passing side like MK Dons

As part of collating info for Football Manager research, I find out what teams the young players support and who their favourite players are......

One supports Man Utd but his favourite player is Van Dijk

Another supports Arsenal and fave player is Hazard

Another Arsenal fan has an idol of Drogba

It's just so weird - football fandom has changed with regards to just following players etc - imagine supporting Town and saying your idol is Teemu Pukki
3 game week coming up
at 09:48 12 Sep 2019

Imagine that there will be a fair bit of rotation coming up - and Saturday's team will be picked with the following 2 in mind.

Wonder how Lambert will play it, the fact we only really have 2 fit strikers may see us try a 433 or 1 up front for at least 1 of the games to give everyone a rest.

Random question on this...

I dug mine out at the weekend as my boy kept wanting to play it after seeing the drums in the loft. Tried to play it and realised I'm missing the USB thing to connect Drums and Guitar to the console.

Does anyone have this, or remember whether I need 1 per guitar and drum kit, or whether I just need 1 for all of them as can get them on eBay relatively cheaply

Great fun to watch this young, exciting and fast team going at it.
Steve Smith - the best batsman since The Don?
at 08:10 9 Sep 2019

I've obviously never seen Bradman, but his record speaks for itself.

The way Smith has piled up runs so consistently and over such a long time period is better than I've seen from anyone in my lifetime - Tendulkar, Lara, Ponting.

It's just unbelievable, converts every other time he reaches 50 and just piles on the runs
Overton gone

I know he's only nightwatchman but would have been nice to have hung around for a bit longer
Disputes on eBay
at 13:23 6 Sep 2019

How do they end? Someone saying the item I sent them wasn't in the envelope.

May be true, but I doubt it, he was a bit of a d*ck about it and I have been one back.

It's only £5, can I just refuse to ever agree it and leave it in my Paypal forever.

Don't see where Lambert's 60 games are coming from....
at 08:17 3 Sep 2019

....and if we are going to make 10-11 changes for all cup games do the extra ones even count anyway?!

I'd hope that if our reserves/squad members get us within touching distance on Wembley we'd stick the big guns out to help get us over the line but totally understand treating the group stages like we are.

But he does seem to be massively overplaying the amount of games, and then cancelling one next week where we would have only had to make one change to the starting XI
Toto Nsiala to Bolton on a permanent!
at 18:02 2 Sep 2019

Can't believe we've let him go

Mick Mills
at 10:35 2 Sep 2019

Crazy to think he has an appearnce record that no player is ever likely to get near for us - 741 appearances, including 737 starts.

But yet he was sold when we were stikll in the 1st division, and went on to make a further 123 appearances for them, then another 44 games at Stoke - well over 900 appearances as a player.

Why did we sell him? Seems a strange decision to sell him a few months after he'd captained England at the World Cup? Presumably we needed the money as Robson's team fell apart?

He could quite easily have made 1000 appearances for ITFC had he stayed.
Players to go out today....
at 08:12 2 Sep 2019

Would guess the following are all available for loan and with the ability to interest league clubs.......there will be a few more likely to drop into the non league after the deadline.

One of Donacien* or Emmanuel
Jordan Roberts
Barry Cotter

More likely to drop into non-league
Harry Wright
Corrie Ndaba

Guess there will always be a bit of talk about Dozzell, but I just don't see it - we aren't as stacked in CM as is sometimes made out as think at some point we'll go to a 3 for the season and will need him.

*Fact that a player who can cover all 3 defensive positions wasn't even on the bench on Saturday, and Emmanuel was actually in the 'Matchday 20/21' ahead of him was interesting. Wouldn't surprise me to see him go on a permanent deal.

Was up there for a long weekend for my cousin's wedding, took in Liverpool v Arsenal and spent a bit of time on the Wirral and in the City Centre.

Really a quality city with a lot going for it now, not been there for years but well worth a visit. Am a big Beatles fan which helps as loads of history with that, but even without that loads there at Albert Dock, the museum was excellent etc

Seems to think that the new rule where any handball in the box is deemed as deliberate if an advantage is gained is down to the EU, and after Brexit we will preusmably change it back

The mind boggles
