New Man, New Hope
Written by SpiritOfJohn on Saturday, 30th Jun 2018 13:53

As an occasional poet of the third rate variety, I have been scratching around for a few weeks trying to think of a rhyme or song to fit our new manager. Paul Hurst is hardly a name to get the creative juices overflowing, which is due to its no-nonsense shortage of syllables rather than his achievements in the beautiful game.

Meanwhile, players are being sold and the honeymoon period is almost over before it even began. Then I thought back to my reaction when I first heard the news of Mr Hurst's appointment, with the conversation going something like:

"SpiritOfJohn, what do you think of the new Town boss?" I was asked. "Who is it?" I enthusiastically replied.
"Paul Hurst, formerly of Shrewsbury Town", they said.
"Could have been worse".

So there you have it, a warm welcome to the new manager and sincere best wishes towards extracting us from the death-grip of the Championship and let's hope for good times just around the corner.

Paul Hurst
It could have been worse
Marcus looked round for a while.

We had Super Mick
Who thought we were thick
Most of the fans he did rile.

We need a man
With a positive plan
To bring back the Ipswich Town style.

In recent times
The bells have not chimed
But once we were top of the pile.

With greats like Sir Bobby
Sir Alf and George Burley
McGarry, Joe Royle and John Lyall.

Crawford and Baxter
Mills, Wark and Hunter
And Beattie who signed from Carlisle.

European years
The Cobbolds and cheers
We travelled for many a mile.

Great expectations
Replaced by vexations
And a Championship low profile.

Paul Hurst
It could have been worse
Just give us a reason to smile.
