Been watching a few videos of this kid on YouTube, and oh my word, I am so excited! So quick, so direct, absolute peach of a left foot. Gets hat-fulls of assists, scores with both feet, scores tap ins, screamers, free kicks. Takes corners. I know I'll get shot down in flames, but he looks like a young Arjen Robben to me. I'm so excited by the business Mick has done this summer.

This game sticks in my memory because, as a young supporter, my old man managed to acquire two tickets to this game, decided not to tell me, packed me off to scout camp, and went and watched it with his mate instead. Cheers dad!
My first visit there on Saturday. Lovely ground, and a really nice touch by Preston putting signs up thanking the Ipswich fans for the 533 mile round trip, as well as decking the bar staff in Ipswich kits!
Anyone considering going next season as well, it's dead easy to get to (A14/M6 - no need for a satnav), despite the distance, and plenty of parking in the many side streets leading up to the ground (I parked on Cemetary Way).
Followed it up with a night out in Blackpool, which took all of about 20 minutes to get to, and stayed in a B&B by Central Pier, £30 for the night!!
Thoroughly recommended, and one of the more memorable away days I've done - that takes me onto 22 current Football League grounds visited now.
