|I love football again|
at 10:03 13 Feb 2017
What a day Saturday was. Breakfast in Felixstowe at 8:30. 32 seater full of mates taking the road to follow the blue army. Little Heathlander (not so little anymore as he's 19) and his mates joining Dad on his first jolly boys outing.
Stopped off in Sutton Coldfield for a few beers pre match. Getting to Villa Park with 1 minute on the clock. Hearding cats is easier than getting middle age men out of a boozer.
A decent game of footy, we'll take the draw. Nice pint at half time. friendly stewards. Good banter with the Villa fans in the lower tier. Great stadium and atmosphere.
Then one of those magical moments. A late late winner in front of our own fans. Pandemonium breaks out. I bloody well love football again. That's why we still go, that's why we put up with the rubbish. It's for those few and far between moments of magic.
Celebrating that goal and win with my lad. Chambo's fist pump back with a vengeance.
Journey home was so much more pleasurable for that single moment. Young Heathy and his mates stayed over in Brum. We ended up back in Ipswich for a few more liveners.
We love you Ipswich we do.,

Walk the line and born to run. What a couple of classics on Radio 2 just now. Put a spring in my step.

Write this season off. We won't go down. Save the money for the summer, get by on loans. Give the new manager (when MM goes in May) all the cash for his own people.
Better for him, whoever that may be, to spend on his players for the new free form, flowing attacking football we will be playing next year.

Doing well down the road. Nicking their manager worked out well last time.

That will sort it out.
Oh yeah and get rid of MM, ME and most of that awful team. Bring in a billionaire Chinaman and clean the stadium. that will all help too.
But White shorts are a must.

We were playing a neat, crisp passing game akin to what fans have seen all season. The beauty in what the Cowley brothers do is they donâ€™t change their approach in terms of set up and our route to goal, but they still change subtle things dependent on the opposition. Many managers make the mistake of shuffling their pack and formation to suit the opponents, but that can lead to uncertainty in the teams organisation. We change the things we do, but not how we attack and play our game. For instance we clearly stopped their keeper bowling it out to the defenders, forcing him to kick it. He was a bit suspect and his kicking meant we had a ball to contest, and in the air youâ€™d back Raggett or Waterfall all day long.

It was good to have an atmosphere back at Portman Road. Drowned out the moans of our lot. Sat in Churchman's near the Lincoln fans. Was like the old days with fans from either side pretending to want to fight each other after the game.
Four goals, lots of noise from the Lincoln boys. Not sure what you have to do to get thrown out these days but our Stewards were very lenient. Was quite a laugh.
More entertaining then most of what I have seen this season. I only went because it was a tenner and to have a look at the travelling support. Glad I did.
