Norwegian Blues Retain Supporters Cup
Saturday, 1st Jun 2019 18:20
The Ipswich Town Supporters Club of Norway won the annual Supporters Cup for the second successive year in Oslo earlier this afternoon, thrashing Manchester City 6-0 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 involving more than 1,000 Norwegian supporters of British clubs.
In the group stage the Blues beat Kidderminster 7-0, West Brom 6-0 and then Liverpool 1-0 to top Pool F.
A 2-0 victory over Arsenal followed in the round of 16 before Manchester United were vanquished 6-2 in the quarter-finals.
A 3-1 victory over Wolves in the semi-finals took the all-conquering Blues the final where they hammered Manchester City to carry off the trophy, which they won for the first time last year, at a canter.

Football's Financial Crisis by Stowmarket
I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
