Ipswich Under Mick Start Rebuilding Brick By Brick!
at 15:26 8 May 2014

Jim Magilton liked to use the phrase 'It is a work in progress'.Under our Mick we are rebuilding brick by brick and perhaps a more fitting description could be 'This place is under construction'.

Will Town Ever Strike It Lucky?
at 20:57 29 Nov 2013

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.

Where Is Our 20-Goal-A-Season Man?
at 14:23 8 Aug 2013

I know it is early doors. I also know that I will be crucified for having the audacity to suggest that Mick the Man has got it wrong but I firmly believe that he has!

Is This Mick McCarthy's Fond Farewell?
at 15:38 23 May 2013

"At my time of life, opportunities to manage at the highest level are few and far between. When I took on this job my mandate was to keep this club in the Championship and nothing more.

Another Full House at Portman Road
at 15:42 10 Apr 2013

It is not as crazy as it sounds. Instead of ticket manager John Ford offering season ticket holders the chance to claim up to four tickets for friends at 10 quid per person or £3 for juniors, why not go the whole hog? Business enterprise is all about common sense but common sense is sadly lacking in the world of football, as we all know.

Hands Off Our Town!
at 13:05 22 Mar 2013

I was vilified by many in my last blog for having the audacity to suggest that Town would need at least 51 points to avoid the drop. I was perhaps a bit too optimistic and I think in this extraordinary season, Town might a little bit more. It is all so tight down there that literally anything could happen and we must avoid the drop at all costs!

The Ipswich Town Doomsday Scenario
at 13:05 1 Mar 2013

May 4th is the date in question. Ipswich Town will be away to Burnley, who may still be desperate for points to claim a last ditch play-off place. We may be desperate for points for entirely different reasons!

Can Town Exploit the Watford Gaps?
at 13:56 19 Feb 2013

I don't wish to sound like the harbinger of doom and gloom but I didn't get the tag The Pessimist for nothing! Tonight's game at Portman Road could make or break our season for a number of very good reasons.

Yet More Town Tinkering By Mick the Man Still Required

"Every man has a wild beast within him," according to Frederick the Great; who is perhaps best known for his excellence in military campaigning and the the organisation of Prussian armies.

Can Town Fashion Passion Again at Portman Road?
at 14:39 10 Jan 2013

My love affair with Ipswich Town developed in a strange sort of way. I began my life near Liverpool and like the rest of the family, supported the Blues. The Merseyside Blues that is! I can recall quite vividly, jumping up and down with joy when Derek Temple scored the winning goal in the FA Cup final of 1966 - which saw Everton claw back a seemingly impossible two-goal deficit against Sheffield Wednesday to lift the trophy! I was just eleven then but the memories linger on.

Is The Town Job a Poisoned Chalice?
at 22:30 2 Nov 2012

We waited with anxious anticipation to see if our man got the job? My man didn't, but probably your man did! if you can believe the TWTD stats about 80 percent of us wanted got what we wanted and the rest of us were left disappointed.

United We Stand, Divided We Fall
at 19:37 26 Oct 2012

Like all football clubs both near and far, Ipswich Town houses a very broad church of opinions; from those of us who loathed Paul Jewell almost from the start, to people like myself who loved the socks off him!

The Boys Are Back In Town!
at 16:13 19 Sep 2012

After devastatingly disappointing away day trips to Blackpool and more recently Middlesbrough, it is good to see the boys are back at Portman Road. Boys this days is the operative word and this young and youthful batch of new kids on the block are in need of a rapid learning curve.

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue!
at 23:27 23 Aug 2012

Someone once remarked that destiny is not a matter of change, it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved. Now I can guess what some of your are thinking. Here he goes again. One small ray of light in that dark foreboding tunnel of disappointments and he scurries excitedly towards yet another false dawn.

[Blog] Town Are No Longer Klugless
at 14:15 13 Jun 2012

It is with great delight that I can report today on the return of the prodigal son. Bryan Klug was in many ways Mr Ipswich Town, having been with the club both as a player and then coach for more than 30 years. That was of course until Roy Keane had other ideas. The feel-good factor of his return to the fold will surely fill most Town supporters with a sense of pride.

[Blog] Town's Last Chance To Keep The Dream Alive!
at 15:02 27 Mar 2012

The faint mutterings of a play-off place and through it, the chance of returning to the promised land, will be silenced for good for another season tonight, if Town fail to beat the Boro. Anything less than a resounding victory could also impact on next seasons season ticket sales so there is everything to play for once again this evening.

[Blog] Town's Turn To Tame The Clarets?
at 13:26 21 Mar 2012

It seems a long time since those dark days last November when Ipswich Town succumbed effortlessly to a spineless defeat at Turf Moor. The New Year continued in much the same vein, until that remarkable 5-1 home win against West Ham United that no one could have anticipated - not even perhaps, in their very wildest dreams!

[Blog] Time For Town's Acid Test.
at 14:30 6 Mar 2012

Five wins out a possible six and up to the heady heights of 14th in the Championship and things are looking up! We cannot forget however our disappointing result at Brighton - even if the 3-0 scoreline did not accurately reflect the game as a whole. In this roller-coaster of a season so far, I think the game this evening against the Saints will be a good time to test the water.

[Blog] Town Are Finally Digging Deep
at 14:51 6 Feb 2012

And at last, it would appear we have found a tunnel to dig our way out of - even if it is not all that enlightening at this moment in time. We must however be grateful for this small breakthrough in the great scheme of things and certainly the emphatic win against league leaders West Ham United was something that I think none of us saw coming.

[Blog] No More Singing The Blues?
at 14:45 20 Jan 2012

Three weeks into 2012 and not a lot has changed. Three defeats and one draw is hardly inspiring but I still get the feeling that Paul Jewell is not averse to making a few New Year's resolutions!
