Dozzell Unused Sub as Late Goal Sees England U19s to Euros Final
Wednesday, 12th Jul 2017 19:59
Blues midfielder Andre Dozzell was an unused sub as England’s U19s made it through to the final of the European Championships after defeating the Czech Republic 1-0 via a late, late goal in Tbilisi this evening.
Dozzell suffered a hip injury in Sunday’s 4-1 thrashing of Germany having started all three group games, but was fit enough to be included among the subs for today’s game in which the Young Lions claimed victory in the third minute of injury time via Manchester City’s Lukas Nmecha deft flick.
The 18-year-old Town academy product may well be considered ready for a return to the XI for Saturday’s final when the England youngsters will take on Portugal, who beat Holland 1-0 in the other semi-final this afternoon, in Gori (Eurosport 1, 5pm).

End of Season Grades by BlueBloke

TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
Away Day Report: Reading by BlueBloke
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.
On This Day - Saturday 28th April 1962 by clivebleedingthomas
As a 15-year-old I make my way to Portman Road full of anticipation and anxiety. Our rivals, Burnley, are playing at home to already relegated Chelsea. A home win must be on the cards. On the following Tuesday they will play their game in hand against Sheffield Wednesday. However, Town are top of Division One and facing Aston Villa.
An Open Application for the Ipswich Manager's Position by BaltachaFanClub
I am already sick of the fiasco involving our new leader, the interview with our owner and all that goes with it, so I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.
