New Turnstile Blues Out Saturday
Friday, 11th Jan 2019 09:04
Issue 19 of the Town fanzine Turnstile Blues is out on Saturday and with the club in such a perilous position returns to the question of ownership, and asks ‘What does good ownership look like?’.
It features several thoughts on Marcus Evans's stewardship of Town and there's a first-hand insight into the fan-led initiative which saw 1,000 tickets being given away for the West Brom game in November. There's also a realistic look ahead to what life might be like in the third tier next season.
Away from ownership, there's an interview with the founders of the Blue Action group, which is seeking to bring more life and atmosphere to Portman Road on matchdays.
There's also an analysis of the history of gambling and sports sponsorship, and - from across the border - a Norwich fan's view of Paul Lambert.
The fanzine will be on sale for £1 from about 2pm on Saturday. There will be sellers around Sir Alf's statue and in other areas around the ground. If you can't make it to the game, copies are available via eBay here.

Fanstastic by LegendRay
There was quite a groundswell of opinion that no annual awards should have been given after a season like that. Except perhaps for one award that doesn’t have a category… the award for the supporters!

My grandma claimed to know nothing about football. "Oh, I'll leave you men to talk about the football", she'd say, but she knew alright. She knew exactly what was going on with the Town.
