FA Cup draw tomorrow
at 19:59 16 Oct 2021

Leaving aside today’s game, who do we want in the first round? I hoped one of the minor positives of being in this league would be a cup match against a tinpot club in the first round but we haven’t had that yet. As well as Sudbury, there are some very small clubs in the hat. Bowers and Pitsea, Horsham and Banbury are safely through, with Pontefract Collieries and Corinthian Casuals taking part in replays. If ourselves, Sunderland, Sheff Wednesday or Portsmouth get one of these clubs surely it will be the telly game?

I’m sure we’ll get something boring like Gillingham at home.

Sam Morsy, best debut since???
at 21:46 28 Sep 2021

I thought Morsy was immense today, a really mature player who controlled the game effortlessly. I think he gave the ball away once all game. Surely his performance ranks alongside Grant Ward and Gwion Edwards as one of the best debuts of the last decade, even with the poor standard of opposition.

I didn’t watch the game tonight and I’m not #CookOut yet
at 22:02 14 Sep 2021

But it seems my concerns about having too much of a large squad are unfortunately correct. We need strength in depth but we should have a 23 man team with youth players to supplement it rather than just stockpiling. Why is Jackson even still at the club, let alone getting minutes? We now have Aluko, Barry, Bonne, Burns, Celina, Chaplin, Edwards, El Mizouni, Fraser, Jackson, Norwood and Pigott all sharing minutes in the same 4 positions. We have 3 senior keepers and 5 central midfielders. Is it any surprise we can’t get any consistency?

I understand the likes of Morsy and Celina are class acts at this level and the opportunity to sign them can’t be passed up but it was like playing football manager - Cook and Ashton saw they were available, said they’d sort the rest later and never did.

I wasn’t expecting a quick fix but these seem like such basic mistakes.

Funny how he threw his career with the BBC down the toilet just for that shambles of a channel.

Surely we should be going all out to get McGreal as assistant now?
at 08:13 12 Sep 2021

I don’t see any reason for not doing it. The longer he stays out of the game, there is less chance of him getting a managerial position so being the assistant here would be a good move for him. And from our perspective, we desperately need someone with coaching experience to sort the defence out and having somebody who knows the club can’t hurt either. Cook might well be waiting for Leam Richardson but at this rate, he’ll be lasting a lot longer in his role at Wigan and won’t be interested in coming here as a number 2.

Has anyone had worse ITFC birthday luck?
at 08:10 12 Sep 2021

The last two occasions we’ve played on my birthday have now been yesterday’s 5-2 defeat and the 5-1 embarrassment at Reading in 2015. I’m almost impressed by how shambolic it has been!

I know a few people wanted him to join Town after the Rochdale game. Apparently his performance that day was a bit of a one off but probably wouldn’t have been a bad shout as the 4th CM.

Best atmosphere aside SBR lower?
at 14:41 29 Jul 2021

I went on the website earlier to check ticket availability for the Morecambe game just to get a sense of which areas of the ground will be easier to book for non-season ticket holders when I manage to make a trip over to Portman Road this year. SBR lower is usually my choice but it's almost entirely season tickets down there this season so where else is best? I was in the SBR upper last time I went to a home game which was okay but it was for Norwich so that no doubt made it better than it is normally. But I assume it's either there or SAR?

1-24 Predictions competition
at 15:21 28 Jul 2021

I posted a thread the other day for posters to predict the League One table but have decided to make it into a competition. Here are the rules:

Each poster must predict the table 1-24. At the end of the season you will score points based on how far away you were from each team's league finish.

For example if you were to predict Town to finish 2nd and we finish 2nd then you would score 0 points. If we finish bottom of the league you would get 22 points.

Your scores for every team in the league are then added up. The aim is to finish on as few points as possible. In the unlikely event that more than one entrant is tied for points, the winner will be decided by who has the highest number of teams predicted in exactly the right place in the table.

There won't be any late counting of results this year as Kropotkin and his friend Google Spreadsheets have kindly offered to assist. No entry fees but there may be a prize on offer. Entries can be posted and edited up until 3pm on 7th August (Town's first game) if Phil would be so kind as to sticky it. Good luck!
