It is nice to see one of the country's leading newspapers picked me to represent you all. Hopefully I did alright and you can see me in a new light.

Fair play you've done well there. Realistic expectations with the mild threat of more and given other fans a good reason why we might not be the cannon fodder they're expecting.

They've shortened it by a couple of lines and I didn't write the last line but they've captured what I meant anyway. I had inferred that we wanted to work towards a clear plan of slowly building to be a competitive side rather than just building anything, but that should be fairly obvious I guess.

Do you not think it relevant to explain why we are actually optimistic that we have a manager trying to entertain the fans and win rather than one that didn't give two hoots about entertainment and always tried not to lose first? It's a huge part of why the club feels rejuvenated.

Ironic when you seem to be one of the least representative.

I think the MM stuff was poorly done – neither necessary, accurate nor particularly forward-looking.

Pretty much agree with that until the final line - implies that we’ve been merely surviving in recent years which clearly isn’t the case

But I can see from other posts in the thread that your comments have been edited so appreciate that might not quite be what you were trying to say there

Yeah I emphasised that it was really about implementing a plan that would see us make slow and steady progress at worse, like Harry would say is the blueprint for Brentford, Millwall, Preston etc and my survival comments, which they have misrepresented, were how this plan is to move us away from what the media see as our ceiling - just surviving due to our budget.

But that plan has been in place for the past three years and it's now being continued.

Hurst can bring his style to it and hopefully bring it to fruition but think you got the essence of this wrong.

Yes, I saw that. Just out of interest, was that from online form they were asking fans to submit via a couple of days ago? I submitted mine too:

“We’ll do okay - and that will be fine. We’ve had a mixed five years under Mick McCarthy, but his cautious, pragmatic style ultimately left the relationship between manager and fans at an all-time low. Paul Hurst has arrived, signed some good lower league players, has a group of Ipswich youngsters capable of making a mark and is promising short snappy passing and a high press game, which should make football more pleasing on the eye again. But Hurst arrived so late in the summer (after Shrewsbury’s play off final) it’s hard to imagine him being able to complete his revolution this summer - the change in style and personnel may not be complete for 3 transfer windows. So the basic aim this season will be to bed in the first stages of this revolution, keep us safe and kick on in 19/20. A quicker transition could make us a surprise package in 18/19.”

Part of this five point plan was to play entertaining football, something we can all agree was not the case in the last 2-3 years. That was part of the last few lines which they condensed.

I honestly think Evans paid McCarthy well to be here, and to keep us in the league while he balanced the sheets a bit. RK spent a lot of money with little return, and PJ and Clegg seemed out of their depth, so MM was bought in to provide solidarity while Evans got his ducks in a row. I think this long term plan was definitely one planned with another manager in charge; thought of course, this is all speculation

I can’t believe a sensible paper like the guardian would pick the biggest blubfest on the whole site to do a piece on ITFC. What has the world come to.

Still, well done for getting selected.
