McGoldrick: We Owe Fans a Derby Win
Friday, 20th Oct 2017 10:05
Striker David McGoldrick believes the players owe Town fans a derby victory, the Blues’ last win against their greatest rivals Norwich City having come back in April 2009 when Jim Magilton's side beat the League One-bound Canaries 3-2 at Portman Road.
“Since I have been here we have never beaten Norwich so hopefully we can end that,” McGoldrick said in an interview for Sunday’s match programme, which will also cover his future with Town and the Republic of Ireland.
“We have a good squad and perhaps they are not as strong as they have been in the past, although we know they are a good side. We’ll give it right go. I think we owe the fans a victory.
“It’s a great game for the supporters. Derbies always are. The passion, the intensity, it’s all there. I’m looking forward to it.”

End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
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.
