|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.
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.
We had Super Mick
We need a man

Where Did It All Go Wrong for Paul Hurst? by Herbivore
The dust has not yet settled on the reign of Town's shortest-serving permanent manager, a reign the significance and memorability of which is likely to be more dependent on our post-Paul Hurst fate than on his mere 14 league games in charge.
Expectations of Paul Lambert's Ipswich by radiogaga
I, my brother and my father have gone to watch Ipswich for a decent stretch of time between now, albeit not as long as many of you. My first game was back in 1998, as a 1-0 home defeat as Bolton and Bob Taylor stunned us in injury time.
An Open Application for the Ipswich Manager's Position by BaltachaFanClub
With the Town job up for grabs once again, I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.
From Despair to Where? by BlueBadger
Some thoughts, in the wake of another gutless, soulless defeat. This time at the hands of Leeds.
