Absolutely insane window and final day. How many times did we hope on the final day that we'd bring in the player or two under Evans, yet I can't remember once getting something over the line, we would sometimes get the broken 'Tesco Value' back up option, but never the real deal. We've just had 3 in basically one day...

Can't quite believe it really and it makes Evans look an even bigger clown (if that were even possible). We were linked with so many good targets over the years and so many slipped through our fingers because there was an oh so slightly cheaper yet far worse option out there, or we tried to negotiate one or two percent cheaper on the wages and they went elsewhere. Pathetic, makes me absolutely livid actually. It's great that we're seeing this kind of buissness now, but we should never have been in this desperate posistion. Seething, I didn't think all this would anger me :lol: . Not out of the woods either, even with the right players it's not an easy job to get it all working and fast enough for this not to be another wasted season, fingers crossed.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see Paul Cook look to one or two reliable players he knows from the past. I’ve no idea who these might be as I’ve never really followed his career, but I’m sure he’ll have a couple or so lined up.


A couple or so lined up, ......this transfer window has been unbelievable. I just hope we haven’t broken any spending rules and risk having points deducted.

After watching a highlights reel of Morsy, he really does look like the missing midfield link we’ve been trying to fill for years: Great vision, accurate passing, speed and strength. His calmness and intelligence with the ball is quite evident in the clip. I’m excited to see him play for us! COYB!

I have to say that our activity in the transfer market has astounded me. And I have to say that we now have what looks on paper a fantastic squad, albeit with too many strikers and probably a bit too large in numbers overall.

Better still, PC now has a few clear days to work with the squad before our next game, and injured players coming back all the time.

So I'm expecting big things for the Bolton game - I don't buy this 'give them time to gel' crap, they're professionals and ought as such to be able to play with anybody. With over a week to work with, PC ought by Saturday week to know his strongest team and send them out 100% confident of a big win.

I must admit I'm not seeing too many excuses for the Bolton game either, Ashton has played a blinder, now it is completely down to Cook and the players and Cook does need some help where these bloody schoolboy errors are concerned as no manager can account for some of ours. Watch out Bolton !!!!

Yes……. With the awesome final day of dealings brings slight pressure on the cookie monster. Can relate totally to what Rossi says. Pumping Bolton should be a minimum requirement.

Also agreed with what someone else said a few days ago re Bersant Celina and the message his signing gives to existing players?
Can only hope its a positive message and players feeling slightly outdone maybe just pull their fingers out a bit more and fight for their places.

Big BIG competition for places at ITFC now. Which is great. 👍👍

Sort of forgot just how depressing in content that Hardcastle song was, (decent tune though)
Bit of a stretch just to get the number “19” on the forum.

It’s been an amazing transfer window. Pity it has to end and we have to start playing football.

Can’t we just forget about the football and just win the league now on expectation levels and transfer dealings.

From EADT.

Morsy, who has yet to arrive in Suffolk after his deadline day move from Middlesbrough was completed remotely, continued: "It’s massively exciting, you just look at some of the names.

"The manager rang me to try and convince me and said 'we’ve just signed Celina.' My reaction was just 'wow’ and he said 'yeah, wow.' It’s a project that I'm excited to be a part of."


Not yet in Suffolk.
Sounds like he hasn’t got any known injury problems, but I hope we’ve got a medical done remotely. The last player we signed permanently from Warnock was Huws. At the time it seemed a great bit of business and turned out to be a disaster with his injuries. Warnock isn’t stupid and a bit surprised Warnock released him. Played a lot under him last year and this season.

As for Morsy’s comments about Celina. Maybe that makes me feel a bit better about Celina coming here knowing that a player like Morsy is coming in. Looks like the Celina move had an impact on Morsy.

Funnily enough, I think we need the opportunity to reset Wilf, but normally i would agree with you.
