What is ITFCs obsession with ‘Sweet Caroline’ ? 13:22 - Oct 13 with 3270 viewsTRUE_BLUE123

Random question, I know, and it’s not really a big deal.

But we seem to play the song a lot, before kick off and after the game if we win. When did this start? I definitely don’t remember us doing it a few years ago?

Poll: Will Paul Lambert be Ipswich Town manager on the final day of this season ?

Can't stand the song, but on the other hand the atmosphere has been pretty good at PR this season so why not.

I also hate it. We’re mid-way through a celebratory song and they kill it off by playing that shïte.

We need Ed to write us an original, although I’m not sure he can write a simple 4 line song.

We ought to be able to work something out of Belinda Carlisle’s Heaven is a place on Earth.

The simple ending is perfect just swop ooh with bkue and keep repeating

The songs to sing at the end of a game are simply singing the blues or Edward Ebeneezer.

Wayne Bavin was horrendous the games he filled in.

We really were spoiled with Chandler.

DJ Dave, eh?

Glad I wasn't the one who wrote a piece in TWTD criticising him back in the day that caused him to threaten to sue Phil.

We jumped on the bandwagon relatively early after the 2018 World Cup I think - we just didn't win often enough to notice, but well and truly gone for it it this season.

I hate it too - nothing to do with ITFC.

And as for Foz, nice guy I'm sure - but he's awful compared to Rob Chandler.


It was played in the fanzone for the World Cup games in 2018.

Sitters, when they bang out singing the blues pre match(cringe)have they changed the words from "when Norwich lose" to "when others lose"?


It’s always been when others lose hasn’t it? The fans just changed it?

Living in New England it just reminds me of the Red Sox who have used it for ages.

I'd really like us to use something more original.

On the topic of music, I think All of the Lights should be adopted for Tuesday night games. Imagine PR under the lights, music starts playing, all the fans can get their torches out on their phones while the teams walk out. Would be epic.

It is strange that the club just seem to be running with it, it has two be one of the most annoying songs ever.

Im not sure what sort of dialogue you have with the club, but if you ever get the chance, show them this thread and end the Neil Diamond infused hell we have.

Hmm...times move on. I remember the debate about "goal music". I suppose this is all the American influence coming into British sport as they try to improve the "match day experience".
I preferred it when the teams came out 5 minutes before kick off & jogged around a bit while the captains tossed up. No flag waving, ludicrous "pre match handshakes" , or hysterical team announcements. An old boy would walk around with a blackboard with the team changes on it.

It’ll eventually go the way of Chelsea Dagger (another song football ruined) and disappear/become much less played.

I heard the FA pushed it as it unites people and with potential divisions between supporters of different clubs, ongoing issues of racism etc., it was deemed a good option.

Absolutely terrible. No reason to have it. Its got nothing to do with Ipswich.

Its actually a bit embarrassing and as people have said its just "caught on" from the England stuff.

How do we get this changed? haha

Put it this way - if we asked them to stop playing it, they’d probably turn it up instead.
