Graham Jumped at Chance to Join Town
Thursday, 28th Nov 2013 16:46
New loan signing Jordan Graham says he jumped at the chance to join the Blues on loan. The right-sided winger is at Portman Road until January 4th.
“The gaffer [Paul Lambert] told me on Tuesday night that Ipswich wanted me and I jumped at it,” the 18-year-old told the club site.
“I’ve played for the U21s at Villa for a couple of years but the move here is great for me, this is the challenge I want and I can’t wait to get going and show what I can do.
“It’s going to be a great experience for me. I know Ipswich has got a great history and the fanbase is really big as well.
“The gaffer at Villa said it was the perfect place for me to come and play football. He said Ipswich is a good club, that they get good crowds and that the manager here is a top guy, so I’m delighted to have a chance to play here.”

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.
