I think Chefy moved from Southampton to Leicestershire, he must have been waiting for me to sell up and move away 😊

I’m not sure quite what to expect today in terms of team performance and result but I don’t recall being more excited or more interested in an opening game of the season for a long time. I have more confidence in Paul Cook than any other Town manager for a long time too and believe we now have the right structure in place to take this club on an upward journey and at the very least take us back to the Championship and only after that’s been achieved should we look further ahead.

Looks like ifollow audio pass is the only option available for people who can't make the game,that's disappointing, are there any other options?

I’m streaming the cricket at the moment on jokerlivestream.net. Working ok, but you have to refresh every so often. The Town game is advertised for streaming there.
If its no good and frustrating to watch- don’t blame me. And if we’re not allowed to give links to, perhaps, a dodgy livestream - then the mods can delete this post.

Bunch of arse holes aren’t they . It has to be down to money and no doubt Sky influence somewhere along the line. I hate that bloody company with a passion.

I think they are missing a trick. There are fans all over the UK that cant make it to Portman Road regularly and the same with most other clubs.

Why block these games being streamed? They are all videoed anyway albeit sometimes basic but I for one would gladly buy a stream (from the rights holder ? Sky) if it was an option and also tie it in with a matchday programme sent to my door in advance from the club.

I'd still come to the 4 or so games in person I am planning on anyway, but this would fill in the gaps nicely.

Why not monetise it and sell a package? Firstly from Sky, secondly via the club (programme etc).

8 Debutants for the first game of the season, surely this must be a record. Potentially another two from the bench.
Now that’s what I call change.

Does anyone know how many debutants on for Morecambe.

Despite the score sounds like we are playing attractive football? Crowd sound great. Wish I was there.

Donacien on for Toto. The fact there is no other defensive cover on the bench is a slight concern.

I am following the game on ticker on Fotmob. Does the team look like they are passing it a lot better than they have the past two years or so? It seems they are more patient...at least by following a ball around lol

Yes, that’s based on Evans and Harper. They look good as the two deep midfielders. They’re spraying the ball wide very often. They look especially good. It’s up to the front four to make more of it. I think they’re less patient compared to tippy-tippy side wards passing of before.

I think Woolf was most at fault for backing of for their goal. Chaplin, Fraser have been too anonymous. Penney has made too many heavy touches.
I’d put Norwood up front and put Pigott as a 10 with Fraser wide left.

Pity for Toto.
