Edwards and Trinidad and Tobago Draw
Tuesday, 9th Jul 2013 08:57
Blues skipper Carlos Edwards played the full 90 minutes as Trinidad and Tobago began their CONCACAF Gold Cup campaign by drawing 2-2 with El Salvador in New Jersey overnight. The 34-year-old was winning his 85th cap but was making his debut in the competition.
The Town midfielder was involved in the Soca Warriors’ first goal, his 10th minute cross deflecting to Keon Daniel, who beat the keeper from the edge of the box.
Rodolfo Zalaya subsequently scored twice to put El Salvador in the lead before Kenwyne Jones equalised with 18 minutes remaining.
Trinidad and Tobago face Haiti in their second game in Miami on Friday and then complete their group matches when they come up against Honduras in Houston next Monday. Honduras beat Haiti 2-0 in last night's other group game.
Edwards will join up with the Town squad once his national side is eliminated from the tournament.

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.
