Subbuteo Match to Celebrate Fortuna Blues' 15th Anniversary
Monday, 11th Jan 2021 15:31
To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the friendship between fans of Town and Fortuna Düsseldorf, supporters of the German club are staging a Subbuteo match between the sides this Saturday.
The Fortuna Blues have been unable to make their annual pilgrimage to Portman Road this season but to celebrate the 15th anniversary of their first visit, Ulli Münsterberg, who organises their trips, is staging a Subbuteo match.
Ulli wrote on Facebook: “This weekend marks the 15th anniversary of the friendship between both sets of supporters from Fortuna Düsseldorf and Ipswich Town, but there is no travel to Portman Road at this time for obvious reasons.
“However, there will be a game of football being played between the two teams of our clubs. The venue will be at Portman Road, kick-off will be Saturday next week, 1500 hrs UK time.
“According to recent circumstances, this match will be played only at my own Subbuteo ground, according to the international solo Subbuteo league rules.”
Ulli wants fans of the two clubs to name squads of their all-time favourite players.
“Tractor Boys and Girls post your entries here as a comment and Fortuna fans vice versa. Please name a squad with 11 players, two substitutes and your favourite all-time manager. From all of your entries, I will pick the best two squads of our clubs to play this match.
“On top of that, feel free to mention one or two games of your club, which were in your own experience outstanding or somewhat special. I will pick few of the entries and send illustrated scenes from those matches.”
Entries will be accepted until Thursday with the game reported on via Ulli’s Facebook page.
Ulli added: “It's meant to be a nice option, to meet online this time to have a bit of a united party together.”

The Best PM in My Life by essexccc
Being born in 1957, I think I have lived through the leadership of 12 Prime Ministers. I don't know which of them I regard as the best, although I regard the current one, the amoral, lying and self-seeking one, as without doubt, the worst.

I am in my late 50s and have supported the club for as long as I can remember.
Power of Motivation by LegendRay
The strangest and most disappointing aspect of this season has been lack of bounce.
Demolition Man by tractorboykent
Paul Cook isn’t a man to mince words. Even though we are all sick of the continuing spiral of underachievement at Town, it was nevertheless still a bit of a shock to hear him lay into the 18 that capitulated to Wimbledon in what he described before kick-off as a season defining match.
Here We Go by tractorboykent
For a club recently described as Britain’s unhappiest, it may seem odd that Town fans are suddenly awash with optimism now that the deal is done.
