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.

Broken Ipswich by SouperJim
There is an unspoken contract between the fans and the club. Marcus Evans has ripped up this contract.
It is a Question of Caring and Camps by TimS
I accept that it is very different following Town away from Suffolk. You do not pick up on the mood on the street in Suffolk and there is something very different thinking about your club through the media whether Town are playing in Suffolk or throughout the UK.
More Than a Manager by Stowmarket
It was a warm Friday evening in late May and almost a thousand Ipswich fans had a date with Bobby Robson at Portman Road.
The Nearly Men by ElephantintheRoom
Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.
John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero by ElephantintheRoom
Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.
