|Blog ||The Years When Seasons Did Not Finish on 5th April|
at 08:30 7 Apr 2016
Can you remember those halcyon days when football seasons did not end on 5th April and there were things to play for right up to the ultimate final whistle? Football is about excitement. Football fans need to have those end-of-season games of excitement and intrigue.
|Blog ||The 'Exciting and Unpredictable' Championship!|
at 11:22 23 Jan 2016
Well done to Jolly Journo! I sympathised with much of what you wrote this week, and the some of the vitriol that came in response was embarrassing for this great club.

Dear diary, what were you doing 15 years ago on 10th December 2000? Doing a bit of Christmas shopping? Still having a bit of a post-Millennium personal hangover?
|Blog ||Looking Forward to the East Anglian Derby?|
at 11:03 11 Feb 2015
Do you look forward to the East Anglian derby? I used to enjoy these matches and I have been to a few down the years at Portman Road and Carrow Road.
|Blog ||What Do Stewards Actually Do?|
at 19:15 20 Jan 2015
Have you ever spoken to a steward at a football match, or barged passed these marshals desperately trying to find your seat, or your place to stand? Stewards are the people who are dressed in shockingly bright and bulky clothes.
|Blog ||A Moment With Roy in Sainsbury's|
at 20:26 19 Oct 2014
It had been a relentless week at work with endless emails, continuous meetings and a phone that never stopped ringing. Come 5.15pm on Friday, I needed to do some shopping and I did not quite have the energy to drag myself around the aisles.
|Blog ||Tickets and Other Issues|
at 20:55 27 Aug 2014
I would love to think that I wrote about tickets on a Bank Holiday Monday and the article has so much impact that Town introduce a Group Ticket Bundle on Tuesday. However, I am not that sure whether God moves in such mysterious ways.
|Blog ||Post-Derby Blues|
at 10:05 26 Aug 2014
For the first time for a while, I had the chance to go to last Saturday’s derby. I had been at home for the week and it would have been natural to head to Portman Road for a fixture that has given so many memories down the years. I did not go. I could not quite bring myself to buy the ticket, and I felt awful. Things had changed.
|Blog ||Town and that Olympic Legacy|
at 10:06 23 Sep 2013
If you live outside of the Anglia TV region and have your local news from the London transmitters, you will be regularly told about the Olympic ‘legacy.’

TimS reviews Susan Gardiner's new book Ipswich Town - A History.
|Blog ||Sent to Coventry|
at 22:37 13 Jul 2013
I lived in Warwickshire during the late noughties in a place called Leamington Spa. You may have been there and it is a nice place. Sitting on the town’s green by the River Leamington with an ice cream or cold beer is not a bad way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
|Blog ||Rugby: A ‘Respect’ Campaign In Action|
at 09:28 28 May 2013
Talk to certain rugby followers, and they regard football as a sub-normal game, played by GQ posing models full of hair gel and attitude, diving like graceful swans at the slight brushing of a leg or arm.
at 09:26 11 Mar 2013
No, this article is about something different other than the spluttering end of Town’s 2012/13 season.

at 10:52 24 Feb 2013
I cannot believe that it is just over four months since I whinged on a dark cold Monday night about the direction of this football club.
|Blog ||So Farewell Kieron Dyer|
at 08:53 18 Jan 2013
Down in Devon, it has been as cold as East Anglia without the snow and a recent Tuesday night saw me without any electric in my flat. Much against every mental and physical sinew in my body, I am forced to go to the local supermarket to seek the much needed ‘leccy.’ I have just come back from the local gym after some early stage charity run training.
|Blog ||New Year, New Attitudes?|
at 15:23 7 Jan 2013
It seems an age since I wrote a frustrated piece for this site on a dull and dank Monday evening in Devon. 2012 has been and gone. Loan players have been and gone but you like to think that the 1st January 2013 is a clean slate.
|Blog ||Another Crisis at Ipswich|
at 08:53 20 Nov 2012
It is just over seven years ago when I was so fed up with Town that I decided to write some random words about why I thought that the club was going to the dogs.
|Blog ||[Blog] **** On and Off the Pitch in the 21st Century|
at 21:01 15 Jul 2012
I was sitting in a bar during another wet Saturday lunchtime, reading the papers. Going past the endless Olympics stories, I got to the double page spread about the recently completed John Terry trial. One page was full of who said **** to who.
|Blog ||[Blog] Good Ideas But Will They Last?: Plus A Word On Ticket Prices|
at 20:23 4 Dec 2011
I suppose that Town are in another crisis. The first time that I wrote for TWTD was in the post-play-off crisis of 2005. I was so incensed by the sale of Town’s then-best players that I wasted a university afternoon writing an essay about what I thought had gone wrong at Portman Road.
|Blog ||[Blog] Banter or Abuse?|
at 11:04 5 Oct 2011
Is it really nearly 15 years ago on Friday 11th October 1996, when I went to see my first derby fixture at Carrow Road? These were the days before derby games were forced to become an automatic companion to the Sunday roast. Back in 1996, I was 16 with a load of adolescent attitude, acne-spotted moodiness but excited about the biggest game that I had seen since starting to watch Town play.
