ITFC maths equation
at 14:00 11 Jan 2020

If A is a must win game and B is the lowest league attendance of the season:

Does A = B mean the end of the 'nae normal' support theory?

Style of play? Would be nice
at 08:26 10 Jan 2020

I believe it will come, but that's a bold move by Evans given the rotation issues this season.

However, for all those who like to put the boot into the owner and are saying things like "stop writing columns and buy some players!...

1 We have a hugely bloated squad for this level, and he has bought players. If we don't go up our financial restrictions tighten again next season. A responsible owner shouldn't put us in a perilous position.

2 If you want to see a really bad owner, there are plenty of examples around. Bolton and Bury are the extreme but there are plenty of other clubs teetering on the edge of similar trouble. Even Derby are having issues. Evans has plenty of faults but some of our fans need to get their heads up and look at what's happening in the wider game now and then.

The old "like a new signing" cliche
at 16:12 5 Jan 2020

Was never truer than with Bishop yesterday.

I was thinking today that if we'd have been watching a promising new youngster who had just signed a deal with ITFC we'd be salivating, he was that good. A major plus point on a day when a very strong side somehow contrived to lose a game they should have won comfortably.

We've endured enough bad injury luck in the past few years to deserve Bishop to stay fit for the rest of the season. I'm still livid about yesterday TBH but the thought of him developing an understanding with Norwood and Jackson is cheering me up.

I've lost patience with Nsiala. If there's a footballer in there then it's buried under layers of nerves and awful decision making. That said, the people giving him personal abuse on social media are the sort of bellends that have blighted our support for years.

Well, that's that

I despise the modern football attitude of getting rid of the manager every few months and while the announcement from ITFC is a major surprise, it's also hilarious.

Now all the people who have either forgotten or weren't around when we had a hate/hate relationship with Warnock in the early 2000s can STFU.

Expect commercial dept at ITFC having a frustrating Christmas
at 12:09 23 Dec 2019

One point from nine in the league over past three games plus a cup defeat is not a great sales advert when you're at home on Boxing Day.

Expect it will still be a 22-23,000 crowd but had the early season form carried on they could have been looking at 26,000+.

But we do often shoot ourselves in the foot like this.

440-mile round trip done. Back in Bristol. Still a bit hungover
at 15:49 15 Dec 2019

And my plea is this - please stop with the 'Lambert out' nonsense.

As you can imagine, after such a long journey to Suffolk and back to watch that defensive shambles I'm not best pleased, but I'm even less impressed with people who want to change the manager. Have we learned nothing?

Our cub is being rebuilt on and off the pitch after one of the most damaging periods in its history. We're wobbling at home at the moment and some players need to improve their performances but it's been proven time and time again that patience is often rewarded in football.

Downes, Woolfenden, KVY, Garbutt (if he signs), Dozzell - we have some excellent young players on our books and Teddy Bishop and Jack Lankester to come back. We also have El Mizouni and Dobra.

We're starting to see what a force Will Keane can be at this level and over the last two games some of our attacking play has been superb (although the final ball still needs work).

People pay their money and are entitled to their opinions but for me the last thing we want is another period of upheaval.

Rant over. I'm taking a couple of Nurofen and going to bed.

We have the same points (36) as Barnsley did in mid December last season and they finished second. In fact we've reached that total a week earlier than they did.

PS: But we do need to start turning draws into wins.

Just got home
at 19:52 7 Dec 2019

Should have been out of sight at half time, played some lovely stuff. Best Ive seen us pass the ball since I don't know when.

Second half we let them build up a head of steam. They are a good side and very strong at home so it was unreasonable perhaps to expect us to boss the game from start to finish but the way some of our midfielders disappeared was frustrating.

Pluses: Keane was unplayable in the first half, Dozzell looked as good as he can and Downes and Woolfenden...you can see why we will be lucky to hold onto them if we don't go up.

Our midfielders HAVE to start making better choices in the final third (Edwards overcooked his cross in the first half when a more measured ball would have given Judge a tap-in) and maybe shoot once in a while. Judge, Nolan and Edwards in particular were known for scoring long-range screamers before they came to us. People get fixated on the strikers when we don't kill off games but the midfield needs to weigh in with some goals soon.

I actually wanted us to be at home in the next round of the EFL, think the youngsters would benefit from a half decent crowd cheering them on.

But us Wurzel ITFC fans will make sure all the tickets get a good home.

Why didn't we play a stronger side against Lincoln so we could earn a plum draw against Coventry away, which if we'd won we could still draw another L1 club in the third round.
