Town to Face Tottenham's U21s in EFL Trophy
at 13:06:42

Really just want us to get dumped out of this at the group stage. Total waste of time, will only distract us for the one thing that we need to do above all else this season, which is get back up. Use it as an opportunity for the kids and fringe players.

I really hope we use this as nothing more than a chance to give the kids and fringe players a go. Those who want a cup run need to see what it did to Sunderland Portsmouth's promotion pushes.

Season Review - August 2014
at 15:27:43

It just goes to show how unimportant the league table that early on. Us down in 19th, Bournemouth in 11th. I bet Millwall fans look at that table and wonder what the hell happened to their season!

Playing a Mick McCarthy Team is the Last Thing We Need Right Now - Notes for Wolves
at 18:10:22

Considering the really are a big club who many might expect their fans to be delusional and entitled to success, their attitude compared to Bournemouth fans is far more favourable. Seem to have a similar kind of attitude to us lot - appreciating what's been done this season, but many expecting it all to end in tears, with small degree of undeserved entitlement - all in all, not what I was expecting from Wolves fans. Still, I hope we beat them of course!

What Do We Want To Be, Ipswich Or AFCB? - Notes for Bournemouth
at 14:57:53

It's a pity really. From the neutrals point of view, Bournemouth are the good news story, a heartwarming tale of a club that could've gone under and received a lot of support and goodwill from fans of all clubs at the time. This should be an example of how fairytales can still happen in the game, but if this is the level of arrogance it produces from fans then I think I'd happily see the next troubled club rot and die. After all, that's what football could've done to them a few years ago...

Blues and Canaries in Pre-Season Friendly Talks
at 12:37:42

Great, an opportunity to be humiliated before we even get going. Ninety minutes of getting hammered whilst their fans remind us that they're PL and we're not, gloating about 9-2 and all the rest. At least if we're not playing them we can ignore them.

I'd rather wait until we're on level terms again.

Sod off back to Wet Spam then. A good reason why so many are against all these loans coming in. As soon as MM gets the opportunity I’m sure he’s going to clear out players like this. We want players committed to us. Apart from anything else he’s really not that great.

Clegg: Taking Flak Comes With the Territory
at 11:59:23

So we just carry on as before, the same clueless people contributing towards a decision-making process that has failed badly twice already. Their stubbornness in refusing proper help – not just ad hoc advice from people in the football business but not necessarily connected to the club in any way – is frustrating and fills me with dread. I have little confidence in whoever they choose as the next manager.

A Lesson in Football Support
at 10:50:19

Obviously the club can’t do anything about the smoking ban as that’s the law, but otherwise completely agree. We are led to believe the club can’t afford to bring the prices down, so what are Vfl doing differently that they can afford to bring their prices down so low?

Who Should My Son Support?
at 17:06:20

I have a similar battle, though I live locally so not quite as bad. My boy is 5 years old but his mother supports Chelsea. However, I seem to be winning the battle in getting him to be a Town fan with Chelsea being his second team. I took him to his first game when we played West Ham in pre-season and he loved it and wants to go again – so there is hope. I remember going to my first games when I was ten and Town were deep in the Duncan era but I just loved going to the games and I imagine if you can get him along to some actual Town matches as soon as he’s vaguely old enough to take it in you stand a chance.

Clegg: Harry Speculation Laughable
at 16:20:00

I’m not laughing Simon. In fact, I haven’t felt positive enough about Ipswich to laugh for years and that’s mainly down to many factors including largely you! It’s not Clegg’s fault he is out of his depth but we really need someone in who knows how to run a football club. Running a football club on the cheap doesn’t have to mean running a football club badly!

Where Does This Football Club Go From Here?
at 17:22:33

Things that need to be changed at this club before even considering Paul Jewell and just replacing him with another dud;

1. Get rid of Clegg. Competent at running a business maybe, but not a football club. Football maybe more business than sport nowadays but without a successful team on the pitch you won’t have a successful business in football. Some of the mistakes this clueless toff has made have been criminal and – if it wasn’t us – would have me laughing until I cry. Now I just cry.
2. A change in approach to running the club from Evans. Either we go for broke and spend big or we look to youth and up and coming players as well as an up and coming manager. At the moment we’re doing neither enough and all we are getting are poor aging players, though there has been a significant step in the right direction on the youth front.
3. If we are going to be careful with the cash, let’s get a manger in who knows how to do that. Harry Redknapp for example is NOT the answer.
4. Matchday tickets need to be reduced. Not sure how feasible this is, but currently we’re paying more for a much poorer product. It simply isn’t affordable for many, regardless of how passionate they are for the club.
5. PR needs to be improved. This may happen if Clegg was to go. The abandoned Middlesbrough game is perhaps the most obvious example of where the club has been going wrong on this front.
6. A little more listening to the fans wouldn’t go astray. Many predicted how the Roy Keane scenario would end up. Most of us said at the time that letting Jordan Rhodes go was a huge mistake. We are wiser than the powers-that-be give us credit for but all we get back is abuse from strikers who we’ve supported through their problems and whose extortionate wages we still pay.

Until we sort these issues out there’s not much point in sacking PJ.

Town Topic: Are Town Fans Overreacting to Bad Start?
at 13:04:56

The frustration for many is that we have had years of this. Season after season of mediocre results, some accompanied by good football as we’re occasionally played this season. False dawn after false dawn. Player after player letting us down. Patience is practically non-existent amongst some fans and it is understandable why. Personally I’m encouraged by elements of this season and I think the players are entitled to their opinion, but they have to realize that so are fans who pay their wages that even at this level are completely out of line with the real world. The real answer for the players is to start defending and putting these chances away!

Jewell: We Can Turn Things Around
at 07:14:13

I posted after the Blackpool game that I feared that one defeat would undue all the good work at the start of the season. PJ must be doing something wrong from the motivational side of things. It happened last season and to an extent the end of the season before when he'd just taken over. No matter how well we do, it only takes one defeat and the team's confidence is shattered and it takes weeks and even months to get over it. All teams lose games, but the sign of a good manager is how he gets his team to recover. Sadly it seems that PJ is still as clueless as to how to do this as he has been in his entire twenty months here.

Jewell: We Can Turn Things Around
at 12:37:17

That was largely my point bluesandbooze. In the time that we have stagnated and gone backwards in the Championship, teams like Brighton have taken themselves from a far lower point and sorted themselves out. They are frankly a better and even bigger team then us and yet very recently we would mock them.

Although the purpose of my article was to put a positive spin on things, I think it’s fair to say that Southampton’s play was light years ahead of ours hamster153. Whereas their whole team moved and passed quickly and accurately we were slow and cumbersome apart from JET, Chopra and Martin. We can barely string a pass together, let alone play like they did on Tuesday.

Jewell: We Can Turn Things Around
at 09:23:53

It increases if - like me - you go as part of a couple. The difference between £20 and £30 becomes the difference between £40 and £60. We're not exactly poor, but at the same time we're in a position where we have to justify every expense, so £20 can make a difference, even more so £40 or £60 difference if you wanted to go to two or three games. Success would make that expenditure easier to justify, but at the end of the day, no matter what I have more important things to spend that amount of money on, like paying the bills or eating for a couple of weeks.
