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.’

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.

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.

No, this article is about something different other than the spluttering end of Town’s 2012/13 season.

0-0 Not the End of the World?

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.

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.

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.

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] **** 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] 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] 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.

[Blog] Goodbye to the Noughties
at 11:27 21 Dec 2009

I cannot believe that it is nearly 10 years since I celebrated Christmas 1999 with a home game versus Stockport. In the build-up to Millennium Eve, it was difficult to persuade a good friend that a trip to Portman Road on a cold Bank Holiday Tuesday afternoon was worth the money.

[Blog] Remembering Sir Bobby in Broad Street
at 16:46 29 Sep 2009

I know that Birmingham has its critics. In some areas, it has the appearance of a budget version of Dallas, but I am growing to like Britain’s second city. The football is plentiful in the region and of a decent quality too at a very decent price. I have enjoyed a number of trips to Villa Park, Molineux and St Andrews since I have been living in the area, but my hometown team in Suffolk remains close to my heart.
