|Blog ||Where Are We Now?|
by Steve_M at 09:20 18 Jan 2017
Well, ultimately it is now a question of a change of manager now or at the end of the season. Mick McCarthy has dragged the cycle out to four years rather than the 18 months of his more hapless predecessors but there is clearly a need for a fresh approach at the club.

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.

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.

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.

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.

It is, of course, part of the human condition that our perception of past events changes over the years. Days of success and enjoyment become ever more rose-tinted, while periods of pain are dulled by the passage of time.

In my last blog Town were on the verge of change. Mick had opted to sell Daryl Murphy to the presumed champions-elect Newcastle with a number of strikers considered as signings. Trialist Leon Best, joined and despite the signs of potential promise it's fair to say along with the rest of side, the Blues strike-force seems rather broken.

To celebrate the festive season, here is a version of a familiar Christmas song with lyrics that could be sung by Marcus Evans.

That's how I feel about supporting Ipswich at the moment.

Ipswich Town has commonly been associated with English football in all its major defining moments from providing two of the nation's most successful managers, to being one of the few provincial clubs to have landed the whole haul of League Championship, FA Cup and UEFA Cup.

I never was any good at being in fashion and being in my fifties now I doubt I am going to improve now. I have challenged myself to complete a blog about the future for ITFC without referring to the current incumbent in the managerial role.
|Blog ||Are We Really Worse Than Last Season?|
by Miles at 09:47 8 Nov 2016
The title sounds silly as this has probably been the most difficult season supporting Town during Mick McCarthy's reign but I wanted to have a look at the results against teams last season and compare them to this year.
|Blog ||Neither the Culture Club Nor the Crazy Gang|
by Edmundo at 20:49 2 Nov 2016
Having read the recent blogs, I am more concerned than ever that Ipswich Town FC as we know it is on the slide. The thing is, if a club is something other than its history and its fans, then what is it? An asset? A small business?
|Blog ||What is Going on With the Academy at Ipswich Town?|
by itfcjoe at 15:41 27 Oct 2016
On 31st July 2013, Ipswich Town confirmed that after initially securing Category Two standard under he new Elite Player Performance Plan, that they will be going for Category One status as an academy, and the academy director, Bryan Klug declared that “It’s absolutely vital for this club that if we are going to produce the top level of player, we are Category One."

Twenty-four months. This is the period over which Ipswich fans have remained patient, in the main. Some like myself have found it very hard going during this time, but enough is enough.

After the 2-0 victory against Burton Albion, Town are three points off the play-offs (somehow) going into the weekend clash with table toppers Newcastle United.

There was a time, not so very long ago, when an international break was regarded as an unwelcome interruption to the entertainment being served up at Portman Road.
