Who Are You? Where Are You?
Written by Pessimist on Tuesday, 10th May 2022 14:10

Having supported Ipswich Town for more than half a decade, my love affair with this wonderful club remains undiminished.

On the contrary, with owners, a new gaffer at the helm and some amazing support both at home and away, it has further reignited my enthusiasm for seeing more of the Blues in action.

And this is perhaps where you come in. I live here in the Netherlands and have done for more than 30 years. This means, I don't get to see as many games as I would like, but I do know from a previous blog I posted, that I am not the only Town supporter over here!

So, if you live in the Netherlands like me, and want to visit Portman Road more often in the future, can you give me some feedback, please.

Who are you and where are you located would be a good start! This is an exciting time to be following the Blues, so for people who get to Suffolk more often than a couple of times per season, maybe you can advise me as to the best way of doing it. A season ticket is probably out of the question, but I would like to see Ipswich Town more often.

Thanks in advance for your help, and I am firmly convinced that next season should see us, not only climb the table but make it to the Championship - either automatically or through the play-offs. Come on you Blues!

You might miss out here through not having included Netherlands in your title

best wishes

Good Point Monty. I was fearful of that so I might have to reblog later.

Good luck in your mission. I thought this blog would be about where supporters live and why/when they became attached to Town. My ex-brother in law used to live in Utrecht and he combined visits to Portman Road with visits to famiy and research for what passed as a job - writing obscure tomes on English Lit. Mind you his dad was a director of Crystal Palace and he was a member of both Lords and Surrey, so a useful bloke to know. I’m intrigued you’re enthused by what Town have become - essentially a franchise completely at odds with what the club was when you first started following it from afar.

Interesting observations ElephantintheRoom. I am also intrigued to hear where other Town fans live, but my primary concern is about where Town supporters live in the Netherlands, in the hope we could meet up in a bar somewhere here - or better still go together to Portman Road! I admit, a lot has changed since I first started supporting the Blues, but in the modern game, you have to adapt or die, and that is why Ipswich is what it is today.

I have supported Ipswich for more than half a century, and NOT half a decade, as the opening paragraph incorrectly suggests!

Amazingly, nobody picked up on it, but I would be grateful if the editing team revisited it and perhaps changed the title to : Where Do Town Fans Live in The Netherlands?

I live in Cyprus. Until I retired and moved here three years ago, was a season ticket holder for many years. I watch the blues play live on town's website, buying a video pass on Ifollow.
Return to the UK once a year to visit family who still live in Ipswich and watched town play Burton Albion and Cheltenham at home

Sounds like me Paphos. I watch them on ifollow and get to see them play a couple of times a season. Last time it was Sheffield Wednesday in the 1-1 draw at Portman Road, and a fabulous Tuesday night encounter with Doncaster Rovers, in the rain which ended 6-0!
