Like all on here, I'm completely stunned and gutted at probably the worst result in our history that will be replayed over and over for many years to compound the embarrassment.

There must be lessons learned and the biggest has to be that it is imperative that we buy a proven goal scorer this week or the wonderful season so far is finished. Mark Ashton must go the maximum possible and get the player(s) needed for the final push. The stats today, speak for themselves and the only one that matters is goals scored. We failed miserably on that front and it is clear that Broadhead is not the answer as a straight replacement for the injured Hurst.

KMcK has completely revolutionised this club from twenty years of misery, but I hope he has learned a tough lesson too. I don't think he disrespected Maidstone, but he thoroughly underestimated them and made too many changes. Sone Aluko is a great guy and will no doubt become a successful coach, but this must be his last appearance in an ITFC shirt. He failed miserably in the role today.

It was a big mistake too to change the defence and keeper. It totally disrupted the way we normally play from the back.

Embarrassing, yes, but if lessons are learned quickly, it could still be an amazing season.

September goal of the month
at 19:19 2 Oct 2023

Am I being thick or just blind, but I cannot see how to vote for goal of the month on the ITFC site

"Supporters can watch all four nominees and vote for their Goal of the Month below."

I can see the videos but where do I vote?
Rest in Peace, Derek

I went to the funeral today of a life-long Town fan who died last month aged 95 years. His first match at Portman Road was in January 1939 vs Aston Villa in the F.A. Cup and he was still a regular attender up until four years ago when Alzheimers began to take effect.

He was a lovely man, a R.N. veteran of WW2 and a gentleman in the truest sense of the word. Rest in peace Derek, we will miss you.
Groundhog day?
at 17:20 29 Jul 2022

I really hate this groundhog day or deja vu feeling I get on the day before the season starts. Is it just me trying not to get my hopes up too much that I won't be desperately disappointed again by Christmas?

Didn't we say last year and the previous year that we have a good manager and the best squad for Division 1? I really hope it's true this year and the cycle is broken!
I'm so longing for a successful season after twenty years of disappointments. Come whatever after 52 years since my first match, I'm forever a Blue!

Paul Cook blaming the players who didn't turn up today...

need to look in the mirror Paul.
Slow, dull, boring, lethargic, negative...

"Footballs coming home"? That wasn't football and I'm glad i didn't have to pay for that multi-millionaire bore-fest. Well done Scotland, nice to see some passion.

Southgate out!
London Marathon - cheer on the town fan!
at 10:56 1 Oct 2020

For those of you who are going to watch the London marathon on TV watch out for ardent Town fan and former Woodbridge boy Aaron Scott. Give him a cheer on from your sofas!

This is his fifth London marathon and he has finished in the top 25 three times. His PB is 2:16:57 so he's not going to beat Eliud Kipchoge, but as his Dad I'm highly chuffed that he has been selected again in the elite race for GBR.
Marcus Evans has not spoken to Paul Hurst since Saturday...
at 11:20 23 Oct 2018

Is that because
a) he is happy with his appointment?
b) he really does not care that his multi-million pound investment is close to disaster?
c) he is avoiding him until he fires him?
Felt so sorry for Freddie Sears today
at 19:31 20 Oct 2018

The guy ran his heart out with little support. Now I'm no football coach, but it doesn't take a genius to work out that continually lumping the ball in the air to a 5ft 7inch striker, up against a 6ft 1 inch defender will be fruitless. Despite his efforts, Freddie did not win one aerial ball against Joel Lynch this afternoon.

Stop it, please stop it!
at 16:36 17 Sep 2018

I come on here to hoping to read people's tributes to our greatest ever player and on the first page there are at least half a dozen threads about Paul Hurst being sacked.


Some days I just hate what football has become.
I will pay to watch that!

Great entertainment watching on FB
Goodbye hoofball. Hello passing football.
We've got our Ipswich back!
Watching England is so frustrating..

Tippy-tappy, dither-dither, give the ball away.
Tippy-tappy, dither-dither, pass it out of play...

Football has moved on?
at 12:50 4 May 2018

Is "football has moved on" just another lazy phrase like "be careful what you wish for"?
I would be interested to know, if that is true, why George Burley and Terry Butcher could not have moved on too like others of their generation still doing a good job.
There is no doubt in my mid that his style of football was the most exciting we have seen at PR since Sir Bobby. What is there to stop that being replicated today?

I have very little coaching knowledge, but am genuinely puzzled by the phrase.
Blimey, Nottingham Forest were busy yesterday!

Six players in, six players out according to BBC.
"System Maintenance"???

I think that Gav just gave up in disgust and pulled the plug!
