|Blog ||Shall We Sing a Song For You?!|
by Slambo at 19:38 22 Feb 2017
I am writing this blog to try and gauge interest in starting a dedicated and organised ultra group.
I’m a season ticket holder in the North lower and try to start/get involved in singing at matches as much as possible.
|Blog ||Has Mick Found a Formula?|
by Pickersblue22 at 09:49 14 Feb 2017
On November 22nd, Exeter City were bottom of League Two, bereft of confidence, ideas, and without a home win since April, all the signs were pointing to a season of struggle. A 1-0 win at Leyton Orient that night was the start of an marvellous 12-match unbeaten run, containing 10 wins. That run took them from below the dreaded dotted line to the fringes of the automatic promotion places, and was only ended by defeat in the Devon derby at Plymouth on Saturday.
|Blog ||Another Post-Christmas Carol (Nightmare on Portman Street)|
by dusth at 22:38 2 Feb 2017
Christmas had passed and the sales, when all good folks looked for a fair bargain, were no longer in full swing. In fact they were over. Poor Mick McCratchitt was still at his desk at old Scrooge's Ticket and Footballing Agency, looking on his iPad at the bargains that might have been when young Tel his assistant brought him a bowl of warm water and a teabag. "This'll cheer you up boss!" "Thanks, old lad," said Mick and plunged his hands into the bowl. It instantly froze.
|Blog ||The Rebuild Conundrum and Inevitable Humdrum|
by BaltachaFanClub at 09:34 2 Feb 2017
Regular readers of my posts and occasional blogs will know a few things about me, firstly I am not a kneejerk reaction kind of poster, secondly I have progressed through all the stages of football fan and am now whatever is considered the final stage, where although I still love the game, I have seen it, done it and have gone all 'more important things'.
|Blog ||A Death of Our Club By a Thousand Cuts|
by radiogaga at 21:10 1 Feb 2017
Around this time a year ago, I posted a blog on TWTD with concerns that we would fall further behind our rivals as every transfer window came and went, unless noticeable changes were made.
|Blog ||It’s All Wrong, From Top to Bottom!|
by BackTheBlues at 12:44 1 Feb 2017
I’m going to start this piece with a statement and end it with the same one: This current Ipswich Town team, staff and owner have robbed me of my enjoyment of going to watch my club on a Saturday afternoon or Tuesday night.
|Blog ||A Tale Of Two Clubs|
by tractorboykent at 12:31 1 Feb 2017
I have supported Ipswich Town for over 40 years. I’ve never lived locally and so have never had a round trip of less than 160 miles. Even home games therefore haven’t been exactly an obvious or easy choice. For some seasons (including when living in Brighton) I’ve been a season ticket holder but throughout I’ve been a pretty regular supporter home and away.
|Blog ||Forgotten But Not Forever|
by Edmundo at 11:51 31 Jan 2017
I've blogged before about the demise of the culture at our club, and the relative sterility of football in general these days. A lack of characters from boardroom to pitch, the loss of the 'bloodline' of Town, stretching back to Sir Bobby's early days (and so shamefully killed off from the start of the Dark Lord's time here), they have all contributed to our current situation. Of course now we have the immediate sight of our football being, to quote a friend of my brother's, "absolute bilge".
|Blog ||Why Don't You?|

People of a certain vintage will recall a TV show in the 1970s titled Why Don’t You Turn Off Your Television Set and Go and Do Something Less Boring Instead?.
|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.
|Blog ||The Moore You Ignore Mick|
by Mullet at 18:44 15 Jan 2017
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.
|Blog ||The Identity Crisis of Modern Football|
by wkj at 16:10 6 Jan 2017
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.
|Blog ||A Belated Christmas Carol of Sorts|

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.
|Blog ||New Year Resolutions|
by Brownie at 21:19 3 Jan 2017
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.
|Blog ||I've Seen This Happen in Other People's Sides, and Now it's Happening in Mine|
by Mullet at 19:37 14 Dec 2016
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.
