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."

Looking back on this season and most of us would admit Ipswich reached or exceeded our expectations, but after coming so close to success we are now all hungry for more - and for Ipswich to take that next step and challenge for automatic promotion.
Looking Ahead: 2015/16 Season - Where Do We Need to Strengthen? by GeorgeITFC24
We as a club have some quality players in some crucial positions on the pitch. Most notably our strikers and centre-backs are probably the best in the league.
Don't Look Back in Anger by everhopeful
After the heartache comes the reflection. For a second, we had a glimpse of the Premier League. Just a glimpse – and it was as beautiful as we remembered. It reignited that spark of hope in all our hearts, the dream that, one day, we might find a better place to play. But for now, Sally can wait.

As I write, I can’t help but feel utter dejection - and I’m sure every person reading this will be in the same situation.
Where Did it Go Wrong? Play-Off Semi-Finals by GeorgeITFC24
We all will be forced to remember the excruciatingly disappointing end to the 2014/15 season. 4-2 on aggregate we lost to that lot up the road. We pretty much nailed it at home with the 1-1 draw. We kept them at bay and matched them in every area. But away at Carrow Road it all just fell apart. But why exactly?
