New Date for Derby Trip
Friday, 8th Sep 2017 14:08
Town’s away game against Derby County at Pride Park has been rescheduled for Tuesday 28th November (KO 7.45pm).
The game was originally set to take place next Tuesday but was postponed at short notice last week due to the Rams being a round behind in the Carabao Cup after their first-round match was abandoned.
Speaking about the postponement yesterday, manager Mick McCarthy admitted he wasn’t too disappointed to see the game put back.
“I’m not unduly worried about that, that’s sort of takes another game out when I might have Tommy Smith, Chambo and Webbo back, and Emyr Huws, who knows?” he said.
“Honestly, I was kind of pleased about that, that doesn’t break my heart. We had a real tough start, I know we had good results, but it kind of suits us.
“I feel sorry for fans if they’ve bought tickets or done anything in terms of travel, but I think if you look at the squad at the moment, if we were to go to QPR and get two or three injuries, we’d be going there on Tuesday with 12 or 13 players, which would be bonkers. Suits me fine.”

As the latest episode of teeth gnashing and breast rending progresses we Ipswich Town supporters need to ask ourselves what kind of fan we want to be.
'Twas the Night Before Transfers by monty_radio
‘Twas the night before Transfers, when all thro’ the house,
Not a rumour was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Marcus would surely be there;
Academy boys nestled snug in their beds,
While visions of Carabao danced in their heads.

It is virtually 10 years to the day since Marcus Evans gained control of Ipswich Town Football Club. The new era started on December 22nd 2007 in a home match against Burnley which ended 0-0 before a crowd of 20,077.

Saturday afternoon, I check my watch, quarter to three. I take a look outside and the afternoon’s drizzle has ceased, clearing me for a dry walk to the ground.
