The Price of (Partial) Success
by samblueips at 11:02 14 Apr 2014

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.
The Run-In

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)

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.
Best in the League

This will be a short blog, I hope it stimulates positive discussion on our current crop of players and their relative abilities, compared to those of other teams in the Football League.

I wonder how many people wanting to buy a ticket to a game have simply given up in frustration. My wife and I are both season ticket holders, yet getting tickets for the game at Watford has proved to be akin to getting tickets to a top rock concert.

I am 13 and have started writing for a new school magazine (I would like a career in sports journalism). I am writing about ITFC. The theme for this issue is beginnings and I have worked that into the article whilst summarising Mick McCarthy's reign here.
Nowhere Fast

"Some people can f**k off," was mouthed right out of our very own small corner of Yorkshire. A sentiment as Yorkshire as the tea and a certain type of famously advertised bread.
So This is Me ...
by RaymondovicBlue at 15:52 6 Feb 2014

OK, so this is me – 50 years old, living in Poole, Dorset and only getting to three games this season (hey, that’s 50% on last year!). Do I have a right to join in the discussions here, or should I keep quiet and listen to the experts?
Pig Tales - An Old Story Brought Bang Up to Date
by roysboys at 18:39 5 Feb 2014

Once Upon a Time, not very long ago, not far away, there was country town with a problem, a big problem. The Town was called PigSwich and in the town there was a wonderful stydium in PigMan Road and no matter how well the locals built their stydium it kept getting battered by the local wolves who kicked balls at it and knocked it down.
Are English Football Clubs Becoming Just Global Consumer Brands (And What Are the Implications)?
by AndrewPC at 09:35 2 Feb 2014

Back in 2010/11 I spent quite a bit of time in SE Asia, particularly Malaysia. As an expat, a retreat to the many available sports bars provided great access to live Premier League football in the evening (the time difference to the UK meant that games start to be shown around 22:00 hours) plus the not unpleasant possibility of imbibing some brews.
“A Bright New Future”

I posted an item under the story headlined 'Taylor: Hewitt “Superb”' this morning and unbelievably I didn't receive an avalanche of negatives.
A Foolhardy Forecast Revisited
by AndrewPC at 04:34 1 Jan 2014

Before this 2013/14 Championship season began, back in July, TWTD ran my article forecasting the end of term result as a ranking of the 24 competing teams constituted by a scoring system using five key variables:
First Half Analysis

After the 342-mile round trip to Doncaster, a lot of fans were left with a renewed sense of optimism, which they perhaps hadn't felt since the start of August.
Where Is The Love?
by prickettboy3 at 13:08 20 Dec 2013

There was a comparison made earlier this week in a local newspaper between the entertaining Joe Royle team of 2003/04 and the current members of Mick McCarthy’s ever-improving first choice XI.
Safe to Stand?
by SouperJim at 12:15 20 Dec 2013

Football is entertainment. Everyone who goes to football has the right to enjoy the match in a safe environment. Nobody should lose their life at a football match and I have the deepest sympathy for the friends and loved ones of those who have died in tragic circumstances.
What More Does McCarthy Need to Do?

After huge successes at Sunderland and Wolverhampton Wanderers, what more does Mick McCarthy need to do to this ever-developing Ipswich Town side?
Will Town Ever Strike It Lucky?

It is probably true that you don't need a striker to get you 20 goals a season in order to get promotion but let's face it, it certainly helps.

Ten Games Assessment - Part One
by tractordownsouth at 17:53 3 Oct 2013

A lot of people refuse to make a prediction for the season until ten games and say that after ten games, the table starts to take shape.
Start of Season Assessment
by luke_38 at 21:47 28 Sep 2013

It has been a very good start for Town, picking up 13 points from a possible 27, and they currently sit handsomely in ninth position. We are currently only five points from a play-off position, and are comfortably nine above the relegation zone.
