|Ipswich Town: The End of August Guide|
Written by DutchTownFan on Monday, 2nd Sep 2013 11:35
It’s the end of August; we’re several games underway, and all transfer business, bar the odd loan signing here or there, has been completed. This would seem like the perfect moment to take a good look at our squad, and that of our opponents, and assess our chances.
This has of course already been done to a great extent on forums, in pubs and in the writing and reading of several fantastic blogs. Lists of transfer dealings and overviews of our squad can be found on several sites. However, it struck me that there was one thing missing; a good old-fashioned guidebook!
After returning from my holiday in Britain, I set about writing this guidebook in what was left of my seemingly endless Dutch secondary school summer holidays. It is not your average annual, as I have included my opinion in everything that I have written. The idea being that it’s also interesting for those who know the club inside out (and it’s much more interesting to write).
So, as well as listing our summer transfer business and our squad, I have also written a review of the past season and my view on the coming season and have made an assessment of all the other Championship sides’ chances. For those interested in keeping a record of all our results and player performances, I have also included a fill-in fixture list and a fill-in player list.
I have certainly enjoyed writing it, and hope you enjoy reading it too! COYB!
You can read the guidebook here.

Phoenix From the Flames by SaleAway
The Opta stat that Town had won more points than any other EFL team from losing positions surprised me somewhat as the view on the TWTD Forum and amongst fans I've spoken to is that when we go behind we lose control a bit and tend towards hoofball.

Most parents use pets to teach children important life lessons. Children become acutely aware of the concepts of growing old and death as they bury their beloved hamster in the back garden.

Hark Now Hear - This is Our Time by Pickersblue22
This one feels different. After nearly eight and a half years of hurt, this one just feels like it may all fall into place for Town. A chance to bury dark memories of Grant Holt, Lewis Grabban, Bradley Johnson, Nathan Redmond, Alex Neil et al.
