|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!

Why All the Positivity? by Cambonbleu
Please don't take the headline of this piece to be negative, it certainly isn't. Whilst the odd doom and gloom-monger still exists within the ranks, it is evident to the vast majority of Town fans that the aura that surrounds the club at the moment is the most positive it's been since the heady days of Premiership football.
Looking Forward by SpiritOfJohn
Looking forward to the new season? Me too. A couple of weeks ago one hot-footed it down to Portman Road to pick up the Barcelona-esque Town away shirt with a spring in the step. One fully expected to be the sole patron but there was a throng of happy faces weaving in and out of the expansive range of new kit.
Is This Our Year? by akjlitfc
After a bittersweet ending to last season, it's time to consider what may lie ahead for the Superblues.
So, How Have They Done? by GeorgeITFC24
It's been roughly 12 months now since last year's summer signings have been at the club. There have been some great moments from our new players, and equally a few lows! But how well have they done in their debut seasons?
Who's Next Between the Sticks (Or Be Careful What You Wish For)? by MedwayTractor
Having read so many recent comments about our perceived goalkeeping problem, I have put my own thoughts together on this subject.
