New Turnstile Blues Out on Saturday
New Turnstile Blues Out on Saturday
Friday, 1st Dec 2017 10:17

The 16th issue of Town fanzine Turnstile Blues is out at Portman Road this Saturday. December 2017 marks the tenth anniversary of Marcus Evans's takeover of the club and much of the new issue of TB is about what has happened during that decade.

There's a detailed reflection on what it's been like to be a Town supporter during those 10 years, there's also a look at how things have changed on the pitch during that time and what this has meant for attendances at Portman Road.

There's a comparison between Marcus Evans and his forerunner David Sheepshanks and a look at how the Evans regime compares to other clubs.

In addition, there's an interview with BBC football reporter Robyn Cowen, who tells us what it's like to point a microphone at Mick McCarthy, and a look at how one woman's treatment by Leeds United is relevant to Ipswich.

There's also a look at how a football-themed fitness programme based at Colchester and Ipswich helped one Town fan get his shape and confidence back.

Turnstile Blues will be on sale from around 2pm priced £1 - look for the sellers around Sir Alf's statue. If you can't make it to the game, you can order copies online after Saturday, from the Turnstile Blues website.

This edition tries to take a look back at the history of the last ten years. The thread I started yesterday is only taster for my account of the last ten years on the pitch, a mixture of disappointment, a few highs and an overwhelming sense of frustration.

Also included a look at the turnover of players in the last decade, a look back to David Sheepshanks time in charge, and a piece on the Man versus Fat which has been very successful.
