Italian Branch in Match Action
Monday, 8th Jul 2013 11:20
The Italian Branch of the ITFC Supporters Club were in action over the weekend in a charity match against their Celtic counterparts in Milan.
Simone Longo told TWTD: “On a very hot afternoon in Milan (35°C) on Saturday we played our first charity match, a friendly five-a-side game with our friends, the Italian Celts.
“There was no trophy for the winners, the only one goal was to raise money for our charity foundations: the ITFC Charitable Trust for us and the Sainam Foundation, which helps children in Thailand for the Celts.
“In a great fair play atmosphere, the Celts won a very intense match 8-6. Honour to the Italian Celts!
“It was very good work from the two branches. After the match, we all went to to an English pub in Milan for a great time spent sharing our passion for football and beer!
“For sure was the first but not the last charity match, we will play other matches like this in the future!
“As the ITFC Italian Branch, obviously, we enjoyed it: ITFC is like a family for us and we are proud to be part of it as one team, and initiatives like this help us to cancel the distance there is between Ipswich and Milan!”
The Town goalscorers were Francesco Rezzonico, Francesco Caldarola, Mirko Dalla Rosa, Mattia Pirola and Simone Longo (2).

The Price of (Partial) Success by samblueips
A stronger squad, with several consistent performers, has been a crucial factor in Ipswich’s success this season. If we remain a Championship club next season, however, we are likely to see exits. The idea that Mick McCarthy’s holistic strategy, planning for the long-term future of the club, may fall apart because of the magnified finances and stature of Premiership is an unfortunate but very real possibility.

By this point, most fans have usually lost interest, with the Blues sitting in lower mid-table the campaign begins to peter out.
Free Willie(ams) by samblueips
For much of this season, Ipswich were dire to watch. On numerous occasions, ninety minutes felt much longer. It was the only time in my fourteen years of being a season ticket holder that I had felt that way.
