Emmanuel and Rotherham Off to Wembley
Wednesday, 16th May 2018 22:17
Blues right-back Josh Emmanuel and his loan club Rotherham beat Scunthorpe 2-0 in the second leg of their play-off semi-final at the New York Stadium and 4-2 on aggregate to reach the final at Wembley.
Emmanuel played the full 90 minutes and created the Millers’ second goal - as he had done in the first leg - and was named the sponsors’ man of the match.
The Millers will face Town management contender Paul Hurst’s Shrewsbury at Wembley on Sunday 27th May.
Emmanuel has spent the season with Rotherham, making 36 starts and one sub appearances without scoring.
The 20-year-old academy product, who is contracted to the Blues until the summer of 2019 with the club having an option for a further season, recently picked up Rotherham’s Young Player of the Year award.

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.
