|Ipswich Town: The End of August Guide|
Written by DutchTownFan on 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!
You can read the guidebook here.

Has Mick Found a Formula? by Pickersblue22
On November 22nd, Exeter City were bottom of League Two, bereft of confidence, ideas, and without a home win since April, all the signs were pointing to a season of struggle. A 1-0 win at Leyton Orient that night was the start of an marvellous 12-match unbeaten run, containing 10 wins. That run took them from below the dreaded dotted line to the fringes of the automatic promotion places, and was only ended by defeat in the Devon derby at Plymouth on Saturday.
The Question We're All Asking: Is Relegation a Serious Possibility? by Superfrans
With a pretty horrible run of five matches coming up, I know I’m not the only fan to have serious concerns about the possibility of relegation.
Another Post-Christmas Carol (Nightmare on Portman Street) by dusth
Christmas had passed and the sales, when all good folks looked for a fair bargain, were no longer in full swing. In fact they were over. Poor Mick McCratchitt was still at his desk at old Scrooge's Ticket and Footballing Agency, looking on his iPad at the bargains that might have been when young Tel his assistant brought him a bowl of warm water and a teabag. "This'll cheer you up boss!" "Thanks, old lad," said Mick and plunged his hands into the bowl. It instantly froze.
The Rebuild Conundrum and Inevitable Humdrum by BaltachaFanClub
Regular readers of my posts and occasional blogs will know a few things about me, firstly I am not a kneejerk reaction kind of poster, secondly I have progressed through all the stages of football fan and am now whatever is considered the final stage, where although I still love the game, I have seen it, done it and have gone all 'more important things'.
A Death of Our Club By a Thousand Cuts by radiogaga
Around this time a year ago, I posted a blog on TWTD with concerns that we would fall further behind our rivals as every transfer window came and went, unless noticeable changes were made.
