Norwegian Blues Win Supporters Cup
Saturday, 9th Jun 2018 17:51
The Ipswich Town Supporters Club of Norway won the annual Supporters’ Cup for the first time in their history in Oslo earlier this afternoon, beating Chelsea 4-2 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in the final.
The tournament, which has been run by the Supporterunionen for Britisk Fotball for more than 20 years, is a six-a-side competition which this summer involved 32 teams made up of more than 1,000 Norwegian supporters of British clubs.
In the group stage the Blues beat Derby County 3-1, then drew 1-1 with Manchester United I, before thrashing an AFC Wimbledon side 9-0 to top the Group B table.
A 3-0 victory over Arsenal followed in the round of 16 before group stage opponents Manchester United I were beaten 3-1.
Another win against a Red Devils team, a 4-1 vanquishing of Manchester United III, in the semi-finals saw the Blues through to the final where they carried off the trophy.
Town's junior side finished second in their competition after a 1-0 defeat to West Ham in the final.

McKenna's Marvellous Hybrid Formation by DanLyles
“I don’t speak to players a lot about 4-2-3-1, 4-3-3 or 3-5-2 and think it’s about them understanding their roles and responsibilities on the pitch, as well as the spaces we want to attack and where to defend.”
The Cashless Debate by ThatMuhrenCross
Ipswich Town Football Club's decision to move towards a "cashless" Portman Road next season has proved to be a more controversial topic than first expected, not only on the TWTD Forum and comments section, but also across social media and in conversations between fans.
