Portman Pie Looking to Repeat Success
Friday, 17th Feb 2012 12:29
Town’s Portman Pie was voted a different gravy by fans last season when it carried off the Hospitality and Catering News Best Pie League and the Blues are hoping to top the pie charts once again this year.
The Pie League, which is sponsored by Moduline, began last year after a Crawley fan, who had gone to Old Trafford for their FA Cup tie, told Hospitality and Catering News how much he had enjoyed Manchester United’s pies and wondered which other clubs were amongst football’s upper crust. After months of voting, it was Town’s Portman Pie which tasted success.
The Blues’ head of conference and banqueting Mike Rieder hopes fans will help the Portman Pie to retain its title, telling TWTD: “We were really pleased to win the Hospitality and Catering News Best Pie League last season, as it endorses our commitment to providing quality products for our fans.
“We have seen a growing demand for the Portman Pie and have it available in all kiosks this season, as well as developing a pie-only kiosk in the lower South Stand.
“The pie is a bit more expensive due to its use of quality beef and lashings of Adnams ale but our fans are discerning and appreciate this level of quality doesn’t come cheap and it is worth paying a little but extra.
“I hope the fans get behind the pie again this season so we can retain our title, which will be tough as we are competing against the big clubs with a lot more fans (and possibly less of a discerning palate!).
“We are currently in seventh place so we need the fans to start voting via Facebook. This can also be done by using the QR code on the napkins given out with the Portman Pies. Don’t forget to put in a football-related comment or quip as this will also get an extra five points."

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.

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?
