Town-Everton FA Cup Quarter-Final Classics Time Switch
Sunday, 22nd Mar 2020 11:46
Town’s FA Cup 1985 tie against Everton at Goodison Park will be one of the featured games on FA Cup Quarter-Final Classics: Part Two which is being screened on BBC One at the earlier than initially set time of 3.10pm this afternoon to replace the scheduled live match.
The BBC was set to show the Norwich-Manchester United quarter-final tie but with all football off until April 30th at the earliest, they are instead showing highlights of classic fixtures from the past.
Ten-man Town secured a 2-2 draw at Goodison - Kevin Wilson and Romeo Zondervan finding the net and Steve McCall being shown a red card - but were beaten 1-0 in the replay at Portman Road. The rerun also include a pre-match interview with Terry Butcher.
Derby County against Sheffield Wednesday from 1993 and Manchester United versus Portsmouth from 2008 are also featured on the same programme as the Blues’ tie against the Toffeemen, who were the trophy holders and on their way to the First Division title, while Town were successfully battling relegation. The programme is already available on iPlayer here.

And Along Came Jim by Moggasknockdown
Life without football is a funny old thing. Currently, in these most testing of times, the idea of missing football might seem like a triviality, an inconsequential itch amidst an existential crisis. Many of us miss the routine of it, the communality and regularity of it.
City Floored by Brilliant Viljoen by clivebleedingthomas
My father, Owen Sturley Nunn, known as 'Bob' to his many friends at Portman Road, kept an archive of newspaper reports of notable Town matches. I inherited the archive upon his death in 1987 and continued to keep reports of noteworthy games.
The Way Back From Here Will Be Long, But There is a Way by SomethingBlue
It's a delicate situation now, perhaps an existential one. People need to stay engaged, focused and angry – which I know isn't easy to do given the endless stream of kicks in the teeth. But articulated vocally and consistently – which hasn't ever happened yet – it will have an effect in time.
Scapegoats by bbg
A lot of blame gets thrown about on this site and on other media with owner, manager and players on the receiving end. I haven't seen too many posts where supporters have taken the blame for the current predicament, because you had a massive role in it.
