|Ipswich Town: The End of August Guide|
written by DutchTownFan Monday, 2nd Sep 2013 11:35
It’s the end of August; we’re several games underway, and all transfer business, bar the odd loan signing here or there, has been completed. This would seem like the perfect moment to take a good look at our squad, and that of our opponents, and assess our chances.
This has of course already been done to a great extent on forums, in pubs and in the writing and reading of several fantastic blogs. Lists of transfer dealings and overviews of our squad can be found on several sites. However, it struck me that there was one thing missing; a good old-fashioned guidebook!
After returning from my holiday in Britain, I set about writing this guidebook in what was left of my seemingly endless Dutch secondary school summer holidays. It is not your average annual, as I have included my opinion in everything that I have written. The idea being that it’s also interesting for those who know the club inside out (and it’s much more interesting to write).
So, as well as listing our summer transfer business and our squad, I have also written a review of the past season and my view on the coming season and have made an assessment of all the other Championship sides’ chances. For those interested in keeping a record of all our results and player performances, I have also included a fill-in fixture list and a fill-in player list.
I have certainly enjoyed writing it, and hope you enjoy reading it too! COYB!

Where Do Mick's Intentions Lay? by Mullet
The transfer window is barely open and the club isn't so much gently sucking in the fresh air of inevitable squad change, but blowing out the cobwebs with gusts of activity.
At All Costs? by RaymondovicBlue
OK, so Luis Suarez is an amazing football player. But for his return to fitness and brilliance we might still be in the World Cup! ('might' is a big word).
World Cup 2014 Overall Table at the End of the Group Stage by KBsSocks
I don't think I need to say anything here. I'll just present the overall table as the teams leave the group stage, as I've not seen it elsewhere:
Curse of the Commentator by TheBlueStig
While watching the World Cup coverage from sunny Brazil this summer on ITV and the BBC, I’ve realised a former footballer doesn’t always make quite the same impression when trying his luck at a bit of punditry.
