Only one team outside the current top ten has managed to take any points away from Carrow Road - guess who?

you'd said to Claudio Ranieri "You will win the Premier League with Leicester City, but nine months later be ignominiously sacked", he'd still have gone for it.

The Villa fans

The ones we met after the game, at the station and on the train were all very congratulatory, philosophical and happy to discuss the match and our respective seasons. Came across as a decent bunch.

Just noticed on his Wikipedia page it says he is a Striker or defender. The new centre back we've been after. Sneaky Mick had us all thinking he was the striker we needed!

That's quite an interesting lineup!

Idea for an incredibly simplistic but probably acoustically very effective chant
at 10:36 14 Jan 2017

I don't normally do things like this, leaving it up to those who can actually sing, but this was an idea which occurred to me this morning, which I certainly haven't heard for a while at matches.

It is simply "Iiiiiipswich" (longer first syllable, shorter second one, the main stress on the first) repeated over and over again.

With the natural sound delays the length of the ground (over one-third of a second) and echoing off the stands, it ought, if enough join in, to create a significant wall of sound at pitch level.

It's got no complicated words, tricky scansion, or tune, is not "gimmicky" like the Icelandic thunderclap, is completely neutral in terms of current internal fan politics and shows generalised support for the team.
Playing against top-half teams
at 14:57 8 Jan 2017

People have been expressing alarm at our up-coming string of fixtures against teams higher up the table - Huddersfield, Preston, Derby, Reading, Villa and Brighton.

However, they should take heart that the way Ipswich perform against upper- and lower-half teams is pretty equal compared to many others in the division, having accrued 45.2% of our points from sides currently in the top twelve, ranking us 6th in the Championship for that particular stat.

The top 10 are:
Fulham 52.8%
Birmingham 48.6%
Brighton 46.3%
Nottingham 46.2%
Blackburn 45.8%
Ipswich 45.2%
Leeds 44.4%
Sheffield 42.9%
Newcastle 42.3%
Bristol 40.7%

The next 11 teams range from Derby (40.0%) down to Preston (30.6%)

The bottom three are:
Barnsley 26.3%
Norwich 21.6%
Rotherham 0.0% (no, there isn't a number missing)

In terms of the absolute number of points we've taken off top-half teams, we're ranked 10th on 14. Brighton are top with 25, Rotherham bottom with zero. Norwich have taken 8, the third lowest tally.
