Fortuna Blues, Stockwell and O'Neill on Life's a Pitch
Friday, 10th Jan 2020 17:07
The Fortuna Blues, legend Mick Stockwell and general manager of football operations Lee O’Neill will be among the guests on Saturday’s Life’s a Pitch, which comes live from the FanZone ahead of the game against Accrington Stanley (BBC Radio Suffolk, 12 midday to 2pm). Host Mark Murphy will be joined by legend-in-residence Terry Butcher, Tractorboy and TWTD's Phil Ham.
More than 100 supporters of Bundesliga side Fortuna Düsseldorf will be making their annual pilgrimage to Portman Road for the 15th time.
The Fortuna Blues will again be joined on their travels by their former striker Frank Mayer as well as Ilja Ludenberg, the club’s one-time stadium announcer.
Well-known Hamburg-based football journalist and author Carsten Germann will also be on the trip, along with Lars Pape and Holger Schürmann.
Pape is a well-known TV actor in Germany, mainly in detective series, while he and fellow Fortuna fan Schürmann have made two football-related films in recent years, Warum Halb Vier? (Why Half Past Three?) and Fortunas Legenden: Tradition Kann Man Nicht Kaufen (Fortuna Legends: Tradition Cannot Be Bought).
Will the Blues finally get back to winning ways against Accrington Stanley? What are your expectations of the January transfer window?

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
