New Town Book Recalls Fans' Favourite Games
Monday, 9th Oct 2017 11:35
A new compilation of writing about Town, My Favourite Game, was published by Electric Blue on 29 September.
Thirteen very different Blues supporters write about their favourite games. From the sublime, when Ipswich beat Bolton in the 2000 play-off semi-finals, to a near riot at Millwall in 1978 and classic games against Norwich and Sheffield United.
The contributors to the book are first and foremost Ipswich Town fans writing as fans, but as well as those making their debut in print, there are essays by established writers whose names will be familiar to Blues supporters.
The book’s editor, Susan Gardiner, writes about beating Inter Milan at Portman Road, Seán Salter on the 1996 Bryan Gunn derby, Stuart Hellingsworth about the great comeback against Neil Warnock's Sheffield United in 2003, Sarah Rogers on a classic 4-0 defeat of Everton under Bobby Robson in 1980 and Alasdair Ross recalls a troubled FA Cup fixture at Chelmsford in 1973.
The book is available from TWTD via Amazon here. All proceeds from the sales of the book will be donated to EACH, a charity which ITFC is also supporting this season.

Pre-Derby Hope and Hype by TimS
I hate the phrase 'Old Farm derby'. There are plenty of patronising phrases that have, and are still thrown at me when I talk about our club, but the 'Old Farm derby' degenerates our derby into nothing more than a Country Show debate over who has the biggest tractor. Quaint, sweet but slightly pathetic, not understood by anyone outside East Anglia.

That game away at Bolton summed up in my view all that is wrong with Ipswich Town Football Club.
Stuck in a Moment, and Now We Can't Get Out of It! by oldbarrackdan
Yesterday's result at the Macron against Bolton and the subsequent press conference with Mick McCarthy reminds me of the U2 song- Stuck in a Moment. Marcus Evans:
Consumer Rights by Slambo
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.
