|anyone doing a "final party" or bbq sunday?|
at 10:47 9 Jul 2021
wondered on peoples plans for the big event.
kids school have told everyone that register will run to 10am so kids can get a bit more kip if they stay up and watch, which I thought was a great touch.
all gone into school in football kits today, or red and white clothing, little outbreaks of 8/9/10 year olds singing footballs coming home, grabs the heart things like that for me, a proper togetherness
|What a night|
at 10:10 8 Jul 2021
word of warning, do not try and climb over spikey railings down wembley way, some poor fcker had one go through his leg, blood everywhere!
that aside, what a night!!!
sat up in the gods, so had a hell of a view of what was happening, the speed we play at is insane!
|next couple of days, and nights, complete write off|

waking up on the hour through night to sweet caroline, 3 lions, vindaloo going round and round in my head.....
genuinely cant see us getting to this point and not being at the final, we just look so switched on, solid, organised.
felt the same after the bolton playoff, that there was no way we werent going to finish the job.
|What an unbelievable experience that was|
at 11:00 30 Jun 2021
Watching England beat Germany, at Wembley, in a tournament, after 4664 years locked up, being in pubs, singing at football, bundles in the stands....
It actually is coming home
|maybe reading too much into it|

but with norwich at home on their first game of the season Saturday 14th August, that ultimately means with police requests, that we wont be at home that day. our season starts a week earlier, so could mean we are home first game of the season.
similar to the final game, when we lift the trophy. Saturday 30th April norwich are away, leaving us free to be at home.

I can confirm the chilled out approach I was taking to the closed season is out of the window.
Mixture of goosebumps, and funny tummy feelings when reading all that.
It won’t happen over night, but we really might be on the road to something extremely special, and can once again have a team/club to be proud of.

“I think we under-achieved in terms of the fans’ eyes, but if you look at the squad on paper we weren’t really ready to get promoted.”
Underachieved in fans eyes - so Wilson felt the season was ok
That’s one hell of a mentality

I wonder whether our Ed has wanted to do this for a while..... but wasn't something he wished to do under the old owner, or the old owner wanted to entertain.
either way it doesn't matter, just a thought
|I’m not normally one for booing in PR|
at 06:32 25 Apr 2021
However, it pains me this lot haven’t had the honour of getting booed of the last 5/6 weeks.
Things like the edwards freekick would have been greeted with sheer hate and aggressive, would have been class watching them get slaughtered.
|this is an absolute disgrace|

as this all but confirms the playoff "dream" is done I sincerely hope he picks the u23's until the end of the season, and if he doesn't, I don't understand whats going on.
they don't want to play for us, for him, they aren't interested and wont improve. what is anyone gaining from playing them.
such a weird situation at this club
|I wonder if ME had heard of this ESL|
at 20:36 19 Apr 2021
And thought he’d get out ASAP.
Does this potentially fck up the money the yanks hope to make from us if we do ever reach the PL?
at 17:04 16 Apr 2021
What worries me going forwards is so many fans will be under this illusion that we have millions to spend, so when we make a few free signings (of some very good L1 players) the negativity creeps in.
Fans think money equals better players... but just remember kayden jackson cost £1.75m.... and david mcgoldrick £0
at 14:43 13 Apr 2021
Complete guess work, but I think we’ll see a big influx of U23 lot in the squad tonight.
Based on EADT saying the u23 team hasn’t been made public for today’s game.
I reckon Cook has had it with a large chunk of 1st team squad, now going kids, make or break

I wonder if its at the point yet where he just says
"many of you are out of contractin a few weeks, so those that want to try and earn a contract here please stay seated, those that really don't want to play for me, or be at this club, get up and walk out now. no hard feelings, but I just need to know who worth trying with or not"

Between trying to sleep, picking up the kids a couple of Guinea pigs there was the small matter of our club being taken over!
what a fantastic day for the future of this club. i cant bring myself to "thank" Evans for anything (time will tell if I'll do this for him selling us to the right people) but his mismanagement and ability to not learn from mistakes has seen us become one of the most depressing clubs you could be involved with.
Its not even been an emotional rollercoaster, because for that to take place that would require highs, and correct me if I'm wrong, but stumbling over the line into 6th, then losing in the playoffs to local rivals, who then go on to be promoted, isn't a high to me.
At 36 I know why i fell in love with ITFC as a kid, Burleys football, players I idolised, a club i was proud of. At 36 i absolutely take my hat off to anyone under 26/27 for following us, because its been horrible or the majority of that time. Today might just mean that the generation of fan we have lost might just have their ears pricked up a bit.
Its an incredibly strange situation right now with the squad, that we have so many out of contract, and so many that aren't even worthy of being in a L2 team. PO this year for me isn't happening, they lack just about everything you need to push on with 8 games to go. they are a bunch of no hopes that represent everything that ME's ownership has been. Seeing the back of them is the next big stage in the future of this club.
I/We have had the joy and positivity sucked from us, to a level that we've accepted such sht for so long, just accepting someone like KVY will be back again one day (for a game or two) that Drinian chases down the ball, that Judge picked up for a game. We as fans have taken such a beating that we almost believe we deserve nothing good.
Today that changed for me, not naïvely, because I know what a tough old game this is, but because the thing that annoys me with Americans is the thing I'm now finding myself excited by, their enthusiasm, drive, over the top celebration's etc - why cant us sleepy Suffolk folk be allowed to dream, and have our club in the limelight a bit. I want us to have an arrogance about us, a bit of fight (i try to ignore scum fans on twitter, but today when one took a jab at us i felt a rage to go back)
So here's to the future at ITFC, i hope its one to be fully of enjoyment and passion.
