Players Get Much-Needed Rest
Thursday, 21st Mar 2013 06:00
The Town squad have been enjoying some much-needed rest as they prepare for the last leg of 2012/13. Manager Mick McCarthy has allowed the squad some time off during the international week.
Speaking prior to the break, McCarthy said: “I’ll give the players a few days off in the middle of the week. We’ll all have a few days off.
“It’s been intense and it’s going to get a bit more intense over Easter. There’s nobody workshy in the club and there’s nobody not prepared to put the hard work in or the miles in.
“So, they need a rest, they’ll need all the legwork they can get between now and the end of the season.”
Various members of the squad and staff were at yesterday’s club Golf Day at Stoke-by-Nayland alongside ex-players, supporters and corporate customers.

The Moore You Ignore Mick by Mullet
Day 14 in the TWTD madhouse and all is far from clear. Months of second-rate drama and second-rate football seem to end with a quiet ovation for Mick McCarthy and his men. With his captain coming out in the media to air publicly the wounds of he and his colleagues, another young player is welcomed and warned off it by Mick.
The Identity Crisis of Modern Football by wkj
Like so many others my age, my Grandad bought me up on Ipswich Town. A great club with family ties, involvement and commitment to the larger Suffolk community, and a privilege to support. In those days it seems a lot of clubs had similar connections to their fans.
A Belated Christmas Carol of Sorts by monty_radio
The Marley deal was dead, no doubt about it. Scrooge looked again as the knocker smiled in a kindly, fair-play sort of fashion, then slowly faded away. He turned the key and entered his very own gloomy arena. A large chunk of ceiling, disturbed by the mere turning of the key, struck him as he climbed the rickety stair to the upper section.

None of the club’s successful managers over the years had massive resources available to them, but none have had to compete in leagues as inequitable as the current Championship.
New Year Resolutions by Brownie
There is an old saying that whatever you do on the first day of the year you will do all year round. You could argue that if you change that to the first game of the year then it applies pretty well to Ipswich Town. Sometimes you need to look back to look forward and this is one of those times.
