Anyone else having trouble buying concession season tickets online?
at 11:57 3 May 2019

I’ve chosen two seats in the Co-Op stand and selected Under 19 for one of them and adult for the other but when I put them in the basket they’re both adult.

Any ideas anyone?

40 years aog this week - 1st £1 million footballer
at 14:36 5 Feb 2019

Interesting article here about the first £1 million footballer, Trevor Francis

https://www.theguardian.com/football/2019/feb/05/trevor-francis-first-1m-player-

The transfer to Forest took place 40 years ago.

I recall attending a game against Forest in I guess 1979 when he played for them and punched the ball into the net at the Churchmans end, thankfully disallowed. I’ve had it in my head that it was his debut for Forest. Can anyone confirm or disprove that?

Hopefully, should the worst happen, we won't suffer a similar fate to what they did when they went out of the league.

One other thing from yesterday ...
at 16:56 15 Jul 2018

Our new shirt doesn't look great in real life. The round neck is a bit rubbish and the red stripes on the shirt and shorts look wrong.
On the other hand Braintree's Hummel kit is a simple elegant affair. Looking at Hummel's Twitter feed they're making an effort to get more clubs wearing their kit.

So we have got £5 million and 53 centre half appearances

in exchange for Matt Clarke and £700,000. Given how transfer fees have gone in recent seasons I don't think that we've done very well out of that.

Can anyone find the Phoenix from the Flames recreation of Osborne 1-0?
at 09:08 8 May 2018

The anniversary of the FA Cup win this weekend reminded me of the David Baddiel / Frank Skinner recreation of the winning goal in the Phoenix from the Flames slot on Fantasy Football. Unfortunately it’s not on Youtube (as far as I can tell but please contradict me) so here’s the Alan Sunderland one which I think was filmed in Ipswich.

Gareth Ainsworth should be on the list to replace Mick (if he goes).

I've been consistent in my promotion of Gareth Ainsworth to replace Mick. This Guardian article makes him out to be someone who should be in the frame, but he's already been prevented from talking to Barnsley.

What we should've done, how to successfully sign Batistuta
at 09:52 22 Jan 2018

Interesting story in the first of James Richardson’s new Italian football podcast. Gabriele Marcotti told the story of how Gabriel Batistuta was transferred from Fiorentina to Roma in 2000.

What happened was Roma’s manager (Fabio Capello) and director of football went to dinner with the editor of the Corriere dello Sport newspaper and convinced the editor to run a story saying that the owner of Roma had signed Batistuta. Once the story appeared in the paper the clamour from the fans for it to be true (including turning up at the owner’s house celebraintg) was basically too much for the owner to resist and Batistuta became a Roma player. They won the Scudetto the next season.

If only the Town fans of 1994 had acted similarly we might have had a very different mid 90s.

The podcast is https://www.thetotallyfootballshow.com/golazzo-totally-italian-football-show/ -

The story is about 18 minutes in.

The Totally Football League show podcast sent their correspondents along to our game against Fulham. In this week's show they discuss the game and the general situation at the club.

The episode is rather dramatically called 'Bring me the head of Mick McCarthy' and can be heard here - https://www.thetotallyfootballshow.com/totally-football-league-show/

I know it only gives one side of the story but it's hard to imagine we have someone in charge who thinks and acts the same way.

Warning - contains photos of celebrating scummers which some viewers might find disturbing.

Is this the most telling statistic about the team?
at 10:46 23 Oct 2017

Renegade Statman on Twitter posted a series of depressing stats pre-game, all of which pointed to a defeat. The one that caught my eye is that we had lost our last 4 encounters with a foreign manager. Yesterday presumably makes that 5.

Now, I’m not saying that a foreign manager will magically solve all our issues but it seems that if we come up against something a bit different, something that has an identifiable structure; then we struggle.
